It was not 200 degrees in the garage this weekend so I did a little turning. The first one is Canarywood and was a dream to turn. I have turned bowls and hollowforms out of it before but never a pen. It is pretty basic but I think it made an attractive pen.
The second one is mesquite that came from my brother’s deerlease. It came from a large stump that mostly went towards peppermills. Mesquite is always good to turn and finishs well. They both were sanded to 400 then a CA finishe was applied, allowed to cure and then buffed w/ EEE and WD. I also turned a couple of acrylics just because they sell better than wood.
Thanks for looking, as always, anything that helps, I am always willing to listen.
