I realize I haven’t posted in quite some time. Life does get in the way of having fun. I have been very busy in my shop, but it seems like there is not enough time to take pictures and post them. July 4th I was doing yard wok, and finally got tired of mowing around a dead Pinon stump so I dug it up. Ah, the creative juices began to flow so I went back to my shop, ignored the project I had been working on (also ignoring the deadline!) and began to trim branches with my recip saw. I then chucked it on the lathe and voila, this is what came out. I finished it with 4 coats of Antique Oil Finish—No stain. This is one of my favorite pieces ever! Obviously I normally focus on boxes, but I could easily develop a new passion.
Hope you enjoy
