Here are a couple of small Items I turned while waiting for glue to dry on my last bowl.
First is a Maple cup. Got the Maple at Rockler. The tag said “Maple Plain” It does have some spalting to it, but not much. It was a bit punky when I went to turn it. Very dry and flaky. Had a hard time gtting a smooth surface. By the time I got it down nice and smooth, I had blown out the one side about 1/8×1/2 inch. along bottom rim. Only has Mineral Oil as it should really be in the firewood pile. Wife won’t let me.
Second is a scoop Got for the wife from GoodWill for $0.99 It had a cracked ceramic handle. The cap unscrews so I made a new Walnut handle for it. She uses it for her Cheerios. haha
Third is a top I made for one of my son in laws. Did not get a good pic because once he got it, he would not let it go. (I think he liked it)haha The disk is Elm Crotch and the handle is a pen blank from Rockler. (they are good for more then just pens, cheap, fancy small wood)
Hope you like. Please post all comments and sugestions and critiques.
Thank you for looking.
