Last week when my wife and I where shopping she saw a couple of wooden mushrooms and liked them. She didn,t buy them. This morning I had some time to turn them on my lathe. I picked up a small trunk from my neighbor, and for the first time I turned fresch wood. It didn,t disappointed me. The wood I think is ash, but I,m not sure. I treated them with Danisch oil.

Thanks for watching

I have turned a number of these little mushrooms over the years. Very good learning project for new lathe operators. And they are a lot of fun to make. I still have a few of them around the house. Wife loves them.

Good job Dutchy- Jan
