    I don't take the time to do this often enough.

    Seems like I never have the time to turn that much anymore and this is sad. I just seem to be too busy trying to get everyone else turning and I don't take the time to do it myself. This past weekend, I took the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. Been developing a different line of tools, so thought I would play a little. This HF is made from Silver Maple, 5 1/2" tall, 4" wide, finished to 3/16" walls with a 1/2" bottom. Watco, buffed and waxed. Not the best figured wood, but it was fun.

    Let me know what you think, good or bad.

    So the rumors are true. Randy does turn wood. You may be busy playing with metal, but you still know how to find the hollow form hiding in a log. Looks real nice.

    Randy, nice to take the time eh?

    I think you have a nice piece of wood there, and you have certainly done it proud, great effort
