I turned this about a month ago. Another turning from the African Mahogany given to me by a friend. I had no particular design in mind when I started except I wanted a box. Turned out looking kinda like an acorn.

It is about 8”h x 4”d finished with water base Polyurethane.

Dewayne I like it, will make a nice gift, I like the wood looks like it might would turn real easy. Good job!

Nice acorn Dewayne. I like the way the pores show on the close-up shot. Isn’t it the truth about starting to turn something and your not sure exactly what its going to be sometimes? Keep having fun.

Thanks guys for the comments just a fun little project.

Bill it is an easy turning wood but it is really what I call grainy.

Steliart might werk for coffee but kinda small.

Dave it is true about sometimes not knowing what the end results will be till you get pretty close to the end. Strange isn’t it?
