'nother partial plate, some boxes...

Some recent turnings...
Most-of-a-plate: 8.5", finished in gloss poly...
Asorted maple, hackberry, walnut boxes...
Not sure if'n the finishes are finished...
p





...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

i love these partial plates that you are turning. They are really cool. Your other turnings are brilliant and the finish is almost blinding, it is so reflective. Awesome work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

These are all great, but the bowl in the center of the back row in pic #2 looks to be really stunning.

What kind of wood is it?

Eastern red cedar.

Smells like a hamster cage when turning and often has inclusions and checks that'll keep you on your toes!

Different one...
Golly, this is a horrible pic, though!

Looks like it's worth the effort, it's beautiful.

I don't know, the bar code on the end of that piece of Top Choice lumber is almost in focus
