Cherry Vase

Just recently turned this cherry vase that is 8"high and inside diameter is 31/2". The finish is several coats of poly semi gloss. The wood turned like a dream because it was so wet. Mitch

Looks nice Mitch.
I always like turning cherry, wet or dry. Wet is nice because it smells so good.

Thanks Mike. I like cherry both ways myself but lately have had a few that cracked before turning because couldn't get around to waxing the endgrain. Mitch

Mitch,
I keep a gallon of the wax for sealing endgrain just inside my shop overhead door. I have the bottom half of a gallon jug and a cheap bristle paint brush in the jug. Any time I get a fresh cut log, as soon as I roll it out of the van, I pour a little sealer in the jug bottom and proceed to seal the log. I pour what's left back in the gallon jug and then pour a little water in the cutoff jug and rinse the brush out. You don't have to get the brush perfectly clean, just enough to keep it flexible. Works great and eliminates you waiting and forgetting to seal the log.

Mike your right and I do almost the same thing you do usually but when I got a big truck load of cherry a couple years back, didn't have enough to seal the endgrain on all the wood and quite a few never did get sealed. Thanks for the tip. Mitch
