I bought this piece of Mora as a Father’s Day Gift for myself last year. I had the outside and the foot turned, flipped it to hollow it and a catch made the foot snap. There it sat alongside my lathe until last week when I decided it was time to get this piece finished.

Re-turned (not to be confused with returned) the foot, touched it up a bit and hollowed it out. Boy am I glad I finished it, the only thing better than getting to strike something off your To-Do list is when it’s so much fun “To Do” :)

Finished with 4 coats of tung oil. Measures about 2 1/2” tall x 4 1/4” across.

Thanks for looking.
