Well she did it and I’m so proud of her, I gave her virtually no help just a bit of guidance, out of the pieces of oak and mahogany glued up she made a tea light candle holder and I have to say I really like it….

Excellent little turning. Oak & Mahogany can be hard to get a good finish on but this turned out great.
You might have to queue to get back on the lathe.

Yes, Adam, your mom did do a great job on this tea candle holder. Now their are two turners and only one lathe.
