Just finished a red elm turned box. Used a brand new set of Raffan Turning Tools with the asymmetric grind. Now I have the tools, I just need more practice to get the skills. Had a few issues with chucking and lost the piece three times! Finish it boiled linseed oil and beeswax.

Looks great. Like the matching wood grain.
