Here is my latest turning. I thought that this was a very funny idea. I walked past a coke can one day and then it hit me. I wanted to replicate it. I made it out of spruce believe it or not. The turning was the easy part. I just glued up a blank, rounded it, added the tapers on the top and bottom, and then sanded it. The hard part was next and that was the painting. I wanted to get it as real-looking as possible. The lettering was actually free-handed with a very fine brush. It was a big challenge but I think I got it spot on. This was a lot of fun to make and I might make an Orange Crush next lol :) Enjoy!
