    Project number 5

    I did this yesterday. Took me 3 hrs from start to finish. This is a gift for my mother for Mothers day.

    This is what I started with:





    I found this on my parents property about a month ago. I had to treat it for bugs and its been sitting.

    Here is the finished project:









    I sealed it with a clear Danish oil.

    I also joined the local turners club for Baltimore on Wed. night.

    Way to go, George. Looks like a real challenging piece of wood, and I'd say you won the battle. (Especially considering this is only #5.) I'm betting your mom will be real pleased.

    Considering what you started with, all I can say is "WOW"

    Boy, you got some skills here George!

    I also bet you get a lot out of being in the turners club.

    Cheers!
