    Walnut & Maple HF

    Here is a walnut HF I did this last week. It is 3 1/2" high and 6 1/2" across. Finished with antique oil and buffed tonight. The collar is spalted maple and the finial is maple.

    Beautiful work, Bernie. You sure have those finials figured out nicely.

    Nicely done, Bernie. Are you still doing your hollowing on the Craftsman, and the rest on the Nova?

    Nice Bern! Looks like the walnut has some curl in one side. Keep up the good work.

    You are really getting good at making those finials. I have a short video of Cindy Drozda making a small lidded box with a finial. One of these days I am going to try and make one myself.

    Thanks everyone. The antique oil was put on while the piece was still on the lathe. I burnished it with a rag to produce heat and dry it. That is 3 coats and it was dry enough to handle when I parted it off. While I had it is the donut chuck I finished turning the bottom and put the finish on the same way. Let it sit for a couple of days and buffed. Seemed to work so going to try a bowl or something else and see how it goes.
