So the other day I was practicing doing some turnings in fir/pine. I find turning fir a pita I can never get the finish in it that I can get out of hardwoods so I cut some 12” long x !1/2” square and try to get better. I had a piece in the lathe and decided to make first an acorn, then an egg, then a ball and last a mushroom. The acorn turned out pretty good so I reset for the egg. That turned out ok so I reset for the ball and it was ok too. So I set up for the last piece the mushroom and right off the bat the skew caught taking a chunk out of what was left. I was angry to say the least and was going to give the piece a heave then I decided to see if I could at least make something out of what was to be scrap. so there is the picture of the acorn the egg the ball and the mushroom. Strange that’s a funny shaped mushroom but it’s a mushroom because I SAY SO!
