“turned” out well … just goes to show that a box isn’t always square.

Fabulous colour Bill, a pity your pics are a bit out of focus to really show this nice little piece to its best :)

I see you are sharpening your skills again on the lathe. Very nice job and a great choice of wood. The Padauk is a great wood to turn with.
