My wife’s uncle gave us some walnut limb sections from his woodpile. The diameter was just enough to get these turnings. They are finished in paste wax.

Thanks. The ball on the left is made of reindeer hide. It’s from Alaska circa 1940s, probably tanned and softened by soaking in urine and chewing. BTW the Eskimos unwittingly contributed to the origin of ammoniated toothpowder and toothpaste (both use synthetica urea as the active ingredient) by this practice.

BTW I used to attend the Atlanta Woodworking Show when it was northeast Atlanta (Gwinnett County)..

Have your say...
