Turning Archive 2005
>Dave Smith kindly gave me a nice cylinder of Big Leaf Maple when we met, and I decided it had waited long enough! Between turning things for others, I decided to turn something for myself. (That didn't work either, because my wife Angie has laid claim to this one.) :-(
I turned this little box last week, and buffed it this evening. It is about 4 1/2" tall, and about 3" in diameter. Sanded thru 600, one light coat of Gel Poly, buffed with the Beall System, and hand buffed with Renaissance Wax. I love the color and the Big Leaf Maple turned like a dream. A very fun project.....sure took my mind off the Christmas Orders, if only for a while! Thanks for looking!
