A little turning and a little carving. Nothing special about it, but for some reason I like having it around.

nice piece stefang !
you turners amaze me ,
i got tired of turned banister parts and table legs years ago ,
they were all round and looked the same to me .
but you guys today are taking it to new places ,
and my interest is awakening again .

thanks for that !

Thanks Dave. I eventually tired of round things too and went for other things, but I have seen so many new interesting things lately that my interest has been reawakened. This one is an older piece, but I intend to do some new and I hope interesting stuff in the Fall.

I’m flattered Elaine, but I’m still learning it myself! However, glad to help any time and in any way I can.

Thanks everybody. Andy I’m very glad you said it looked liked a relic. I really wanted it to look kind of worn and used and crude. It has some small cracks in it and a couple of knots. I guess many of us are so used to seeing such perfect things that crude or rustic things often have their own charm. That’s a good thing for me!

Thanks Larry and Lou. I too have a thing about spirals. I think maybe because they have a certain dynamic look about them that is very appealing.
