From an apple to a pumpkin, I’m not sure what’s next but this is a maple HF aniline dyed & finished with wipe on poly. 7” tall x 7” wide. Thanks for looking.

Another beauty Lou. For a non-turner like myself HF=Harbor Freight. I imagine it stands for hollow something?

Oh, wow Lou, this is beautiful, but you gotta be careful with those abbreviations cause wouldn’t it be something to say you got this at Harbor Freight? ;-) Well I gotta say you will never find something like this at a HF store in a million years. How thin did you turn this one? I’ll also bet you said some choice words when you found the split at the top. Still worth top dollar!

Great job , Lou !! Is the bottom totally round or did you make a foot on it ? I can’t tell from the pictures which are very nicely done as well : ) Great finish and 1/8” walls to boot !!
