This is a perfect example of something starting out as one thing and ending up another. I started out making a goblet but after a few mess up with the dreaded skew I had to change direction. I looked at it for a while and then the mushroom took shape. I haven’t turned a mushroom before that I rem so I guess this is my first.

Made from post oak. The large one is 2 1/2” x 2” and smaller is 2” x 1 3/8”. Finished with Capt Eddie’s OB Shine Juice

When I started turning, I did mushrooms, many many mushrooms. I think I still have some. They are good practice.

I do think you would have to soak them a very long time in something then water.
