Thimble turning *PIC*

>Finally picked up one of those thimble cutters from CS and decided to spend the day trying to master making these minatures. First two attempts in Zebrawood and Padauk cracked...too much grain...not my fault :-). So, for the 3rd try, thought I’d use a little harder material...1" cast acrylic rod. This little guy measures about 1" high and 3/4" wide at the base. It was a challenge to drill out and polish the inside, but after that it was smooth sailing.

best regards,
Ed D.
