Cherry Vase

Turned from a piece of spalted cherry. The vase is 6"high and the diameter of the inside of the throat is 2".The wood was kind of punky throughout and looked like cork to me. I sealed with poly satin finish and buffed with Bealls 3 wheel buffing system, using the wax wheel only. Mitch

Cherry bowl

Wow ! That's good work, and though the size is not obvious, it must have started as a huge piece of cherry! Does most cherry have that kind of color? Is it available to me locally?
Keep up the good work, the finished product pushes me to get started again.

Thanks Forrest. Your right this was a big hunk of cherry when I started. It was in the garage all winter so it dried out quicker than other logs.As I turned it kept getting punkier, like cork. I was going to throw it away but thought it was too beautidful a wood to do that. I just kept brushing on paste wax and then sanding till it looked solid again then turned some more.Wax makes it easier to sand, but I don't know what it does. If you sand enough you won't have any trouble later putting on your finish. Get your tools sharpened and get started turning. Mitch

Thank you Nancy. Yes cherry is beautiful and my favorite wood. Older it gets, the darker it gets and the grain shows up much better.

Mitch,
BEAUTIFUL! You disgust me, every thing I turn looks like a kid with a rock hacked it out.
