Nice work Jim. I see you got your hands on more mesquite. Hope that weather is warm enough for you.

Jim. Very nice Turnings….I love that Mesquite. The Danish Oil and the clear gloss lacquer work very well.

What make of Danish Oil do you use Jim? Different makes seem to have different clean up liquids required.

Regards,

Cliff.

Very nice, Jim…

Yep, when Mesquite, etc. shows up, big clue that you’re back in AZ!

COOL!

Beautiful Timber Jim, and great shapes.

Yours came out nicely.
