It has been some time since I posted a completed project as I have been very busy with my day job.
I got an update to my Shopsmith in the form of a Universal Tool Rest and I could not wait to try it out.
I also recently purchased a Harbor Freight electric chain saw.
several months ago I got some Eucalyptus logs and now I have the tools to do something with them.
I cut up one of the logs and prepared a blank using my new chainsaw and my bandsaw.
Chucked the blank in the lathe and went at it.
Here is the completed project
approximately 6 inches in diameter and 3 3/4 inches tall inside depth is just over 3 inches.
Finish is Wood Turner’s finish by General Finishes. (I really like this stuff)
Buffed with tripoli, white diamond and blue plastic polish finished off with a coat of finishing wax.
C and C are welcome as always.
