Chestnut vase/open turning
« on: August 18, 2019, 07:15:20 PM »
Just finished this Chestnut Burr today it stands 6 1/2" tall by 6 1/2" across. Finished with sander sealer and satin lacquer, I then gave it a wax with woodwax22 as the satin finish was not what I wanted but the high gloss would have been too glossy.
C & C Welcome.

Right up my street. Love working with this sort of wood, hand in hand with the wood. Love it.

Thank you Pete. I like turning things like this as it keeps you on your toes and certainly makes you think how to turn it safely

Derek,
a perfect example of 'If it's already got it', 'Don't over think it' and ' Don't overwork it'.
Oh Lord, Lead me not into temptation…

...Oh who am I kidding, follow me, I know a shortcut!
