Maple Burl HF
Well here is a HF I turned today with some maple burl that Ken Fitzgerald was so kind to share with me. It is 7 3/4" tall and 6 3/4" across. The walls are 1/4" thick. Was scared to go any thinner because I thought when I was turning it it was going to explode any time as I could hear it creaking and groaning. It stayed together and I am pretty pleased with it and how the monster tool worked today. I have one coat of Antique Oil on it. I gave it the the LOML of 40 yrs. for mothers day. She loves it. Pictures aren't to good as I haven't got the photo tents setup yet or able to use the tripod.
