    Walnut HF

    Well got a little turning time between honey-do's and Christmas turnings. Turned this walnut HF. It is 10 1/2" X 4". Finished with GF Woodturners finish. Hasn't been buffed yet. My wife had some friends over yesterday and one of her friends bought it. I told her she could pick it up next week after it has dried a few days and buffed.

    Beautiful wood and excellent finish to show it off. Great flying saucer shape.

    Dang Bernie, your pieces are selling before you can even get them finished. That's a great problem to have.

    Thanks again. I just hope the sales keep up. I have to make another one tomorrow as another one of the ladies talked with the gal that bought one. So she called the wife and said she didn't know it was for sale or she would have spoken up. So guess early tomorrow I will get another one done.

    Well done Bernie. Great looking piece. You do seem to be able to sell things fast. Good for you. Hope that continues for you.
