Turning Archive 2004
The Capitol Area Woodturners club I belong to is having a 2x4 contest. I don't much care for turning 2x4 as it doesn't have much strength, turns poorly, moves a LOT. 2x4s glue well and sanding is usually effective. The knots are plentiful and they don't hold much interest, though the wood next to a knot can often exhibit some chatoyance.
This table is a collaboration with another member of the club. I used the collaboration as an excuse to use two 2x4s.
I like wearing Hawaiian shirts which is where I got my inspiration for the coloring. the design of the table was a collaboration that was partly limited by the size of my friends 1018 lathe.
The table is 20" across and 26" tall.
Thanks for looking
