I don't really belong here with my turnings,as I have seen alot of the fine work you all do down here in lathe land. I am not up to the rest of you spinning guys. I am more comfortable in flat land. But I used to turn a few years ago and I just got a new turning tool. Made by EasyWood. Its their medium finisher. Saw the DVD and had to try it.Just a small lidded box,that I turned from a cut off of a Maple post. The lid from a Maple drawer that I had cut down for my son and a scrap of Walnut for the knob.
Finish is just shalac and beal buffed
Its been a long time since I made that much of a mess with such a small project. But it was fun anyway. Will just give it to someone when tey arn't looking so as they wont throw it at me.
