First time in a long time on the lathe. I get frustrated sometimes, I know my techniques and sharpening abilities are lacking and I need to sit down with YouTube and learn. I have quite a few unfinished works, so it's good to get one done.
This one is about 6", Maple (from my dad's neighbor's tree), finished with mineral oil. The beauty in the wood always amazes me!
Roadtrip rte #22 First stop @firestonetires - a mile from the airport.Thx to our new pal George 4 saving the day & our lives before we got on the road. Oh & for calling up to the local bar we walked to before we got their for our wait. And for letting @my_goldenboy and his embarrassing dog boots hang out and for the fun. P.s. It was worth the 3 hrs and I'm not @ladygaga's sister - (I wish) and we are not on #undercoverboss , but yes, you rock. First #vacation purchase #tires#adulting#vegas to #stlouis to the #mitten
