Heres a little Christmas present. We have 5 species of wood here. On the outside is black walnut from a co-workers tree. Then some mahogany left over from a different project, then applewood out of my old mac tree. Crossing the handle we have cocobolo and box elder. Spun on the lathe, then spun on the spindle sander. It feels real nice. Merry Christmas jocks!

This just appeared on my front page. Very cool design, love the way it has been flattened out. May have to try this idea. Hope you don’t mind.
