This was challenging project to do because i couldn’t keep my fingers out of the spinning blades of those square corners when i was sanding it in my lathe.

Very Nice, I have made those before and found out that the best way to finish it is to do it by hand, Take a bit longer but I sacrifice time for my fingers!

Very nice. I found that a higher than normal rpm when sanding and/or power sanding with drill attachment kept my fingers safe.
