Got the hankerin’ for making some more itty bitty stuff. Both pieces were turned out of Quina, a very aromatic wood found all over South America (typically used in making furniture), and finished with Hut’s Crystal Coat.

... by the way, I don’t own any “mini” tools …

Really beautiful wood and great job on the turnings. The good thing about turning pieces that small is that a little wood can go a long way!

Nice! Would you share your mounting technique? I still get nervous whenever I’m not on a mandrel.

They are all really nice and I’m sure they are all skill building projects because of their size. Nice work.
