Dudley, When you are “just piddiling around” like you said. It really lets oyur creative juices flow. That is when I have the most fun. I may have a general idea of what I want to turn, but I just start turning and see what happens. All ways a surprise. Great job. Nice designs.

Keep it up.

Vince: Thanks. No harder on the tools than real hard wood. I get the pre drilled 1/2” blanks and grind off the corners on the belt sander. First a 5/8” gouge to get it round and shaped. Final tool I use a 1/2” scraper then use 400 grit aluminum oxide horizontal to remove any rings then sand with micro mesh to 12000. Then three coats of Renaissance wax. They shine like a diamond in a goats ass.
