My kids were beta-testing these presents for their cousins when they informed me that Santa has a lathe. How have a lived 38 years on this planet without knowing that? :-)
Left to right that are cherry, cherry, oak, maple, ash and maple. All but the cherry was from trees in the neighborhood that were felled by storms or pruned. Some have a walnut oil coat topped with wax while others are simply waxed. All were sanded up to 600 on the lathe The kids helped in the making on these to varying degrees. Fun was had by all though. Turning is addictive.
