We decided to take out the shrubs at the front of the house. They were here when I moved in so I know they were over 50 years old. Not sure what species they were but I can tell you they are completely unforgiving when you fall face first into them, from a ladder, while hanging Christmas decorations- don’t ask.
The turning is about 5” tall and 6” diameter at the top. Sanded thru 4000 grit. Finished with Johnson’s paste wax.
This is the first turning I’ve made that had a “opening” in the side. My stuff is usually pretty much utilitarian. This really doesn’t have much practical purpose but the grain looks nice.
Thanks for looking!
