I used some things I learned from Capt. Eddie Castelin to make this small finial out of walnut. I used his tip to turn a precise tenon diameter with a sharpened, open end wrench—it works like a charm.

I then used a collet chuck to hold this small piece of walnut securely for turning. I had no plan for the final shape but I let it just emerge. It turned out looking like the Eiffel tower to me. I quickly turned an oak base to stick it in for a little display piece. Not sure what I’ll do with it now but the techniques I learned were really fun to put into practice and I want to thank Capt. Eddie for his sense of humor, his skill and his willingness to pass that knowledge on to anyone that wants it.

Looks nice, Jon. I love Cap’n Eddie and his videos. Did you use OB’s shine juice to finish?

Very nice shape especially the finial. Like the wood combo too. Great turning!

Have your say...
