Turning Archive 2007
>I've turned dozens of finials but these are the first that didn't turn into UFOs! The boxes are, I believe, Box Elder. I bought the wood from Steve Dunn in the parking lot at DWR and it was waxed and covered in dirt and debris and I asked him what kind of wood it was. He said, "Trailer wood". I said, "Huh?" He said it's been in my trailer so long I can't remember what it is."
The finial on the left is Honey Mesquite and the one on the right is Walnut from the NW that I got from Dave Smith at DWR. Both boxes are loose lidded so they can be opened with one hand — for ladies' rings or whatever.
As you can see Cindy Drozda has nothing to worry about from me for a long time — a very long time! GRIN! Critiques are welcome........Ron
