I don’t know that these qualify as a project, but I had some smallish scraps and decided to make some little weed pots out of them. I don’t remember all of the species, but I do know that there’s yellowheart, purpleheart, holly, and I think walnut and bubinga (maybe).

Anyway, they’re finished with the Beal buffing system (Carnuba being the last).

I actually did these quite awhile ago – I’m way behind on posting stuff.

If these do not qualify as a project, I am in trouble. I have a blast using up small scraps to see what I can make of them.

Great group of turnings. Lots of nice shapes. Love all the scraps used.

Keep it up.
