Design change for Keith *PIC*

Dick Hines
>Keith here is the piece I was talking about this morning. It started out as a piece of cherry 12"x8" with a knot. I started turning between centers. The farther I got in the piece the softer the wood got. This is what I ended up with. 5"x5" and a lot of side wall missing. This was the great design change.

The finish is 10 coats of Deft spray lacquer. Now I am hand sanding with 1500 wet-dry sand paper. Then buff by hand with paste wax. This thing will never see a buffing wheel.
