Ten days in the making, mostly drying and finishing. This is the first finial I’ve done since I got Capt Eddies 3/8 finial chuck. It’l take some getting used to for sure. It’s really not about turning wood, it’s all about chucking wood. If you want to become a wood turner, study how to properly chuck because that’s what it’s all about. I think anyone can turn one of these and a lot of you can do it much better than I can, but that’s because you know your chucks. Very important. Been all day on that finial, but I think I got the hang of it now. Need more delicate chisels though if I want more delicate finials, I am still working on my own chisels from the bars of HSS I got last week, takes a while to grind them down. Should have 4 good chisels out of the bunch.
Thanks for looking.
