Well this one stretched out my tooling.... I now know that if I am going to start doing this for fun and maybe sell a few. I am going to have to upgrade my chisels, gouges and scrapers. As well as tool rests. This piece has some heavy checking on the side but I got a lot of tear out from over reaching as my tool rest wouldn't fit inside at the angles I needed to make the cuts.
I need to work on my proportions as well. I think the neck is a bit too long for the base.
2 coats of tung oil spun on and I will put a couple more on before parting it off.
