Hope that you sell them all. They look great. Capt. Eddie’s OB Shine is terrific, I’ve been using ti myself lately and it’s much cheaper than the commercial brands and I think works as well.

Exactly Bill, OB Shine leaves a very nice and easy to apply finish. I am on a disability income so I need the savings too. On top of that, almost all of my wood is recovered wood that was destined for a landfill or fire-pit somewhere. I use this wood not only to save money but because it is environmentally friendly choice.

Nicely done. Did you burn the features on? Hope you had a good show. Looks like you had a pretty good selection.

The lines that are all the way around are buned in using guitar string while the lathe was turning. All the other parts were burned in using a small craft wood burning iron (wit-h 3 different tips) that I got from Walmart for $12 or so. They sold very easily, but perhaps I charged too little, LOL. I have a couple left but they get to dress up our house. I got a few special ordered too – they wanted snowmen from darker wood.
