I made this pin while on vacation at my parents. I took some wood for my dad to use. I put a piece on the lathe and started it thinking Dad would finish it, but he decided to go inside and take a nap. Can’t blame him… it was hot in his shed. So I kept going and by the time he came back I had it finished. I was in a rush to finish it because we had to go away so I didn’t get it as smooth as I wanted to. It was fairly green and I was worried it would split if left on the lathe while away. It is sassafras coated with mineral oil. I like that it has a little sapwood in it.
