    Door Stop

    While this isn't 100% turned, i figure it qualifies as a turning.

    This is a door stop that I made for my sister. She has a door in her house that she can't keep open. So I made this for her for her birthday.
    It is laminated maple and purple heart, with a lacquer finish.

    Now nobody will go through that door. They will be too enamored looking at the beautiful "door holder opener" to go on through.

    Enjoy,

    Nicely done, Sean. Turning that shoulder and getting a clean line is a challenge, huh?

    That's a door stop too good to be used given what I have seen ends up happening to door stops I have made. Well done Sean thanks for posting.
    cheers

    Thank you!

    Funny thing it is actually upside down in the pictures. I finished this late one night, and hurried to take the pictures. By the time I realized that it was upside down, I had already given it away. Doh!

    It was a little tricky. If you do it right you can end up with 2 almost matching door stops. My 2nd half didn't quite make the cut, so to speak!
