Some beautiful turnings….the Estoraque is exquisite…does it have another name – I don’t recall that name?

All of them turned out amazing….great job…

Nothing better than a great blank…the lathe turning smoothly…and the nice stips of sawdust flowing off the gouge…

Another fantastic group of turnings. That Estoraque has a fantastic grain pattern to it and you allways pick great form to bring it out. Outstanding job.

Keep up the wonderfull work.
