That's nice......but so small. What do you do with it?
Maybe it's not small. How big?

When it's rustic......it's rustic

Okay, that's just cool. Nice work. I too, am interested in how big this is.

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

Don't bother with the coin, some of the guys here will just say that you are using a trick coin. (at least that's what they do to me.)

I tried turning two part acorns many years ago after reading an article. Can turn one-piece acorns all day long. Started big and worked myself down to acorns less than an inch. Am very good at turning eggs to put in my birdhouse ornaments.

If you want a challenge turn a small two part acorn!

Outstanding turning Robbiethewood, thanks for sharing.
