I’ve been kicking and tripping over this piece of wood for a couple of years so I decided to put it on the lathe and see what happens.

WOW! What a transformation. You can never tell how something like that will turn out. Fantastic job.

Keep it up.

WOW, you turners kill me! I so want to get into this. One day soon after I finish the long list of things on the Honey Do List, that is. Very well done and great piece.

You turned burnable into collectable. Great job.

I’ve gotta ask I have done some similar pieces to this how in the world do you sand that thing? I attempted to do mine on the lathe and my fingers nearly didn’t forgive me I shouldn’t admit to my stupidity but do you take yours off to sand it?

glowworm, it was power sanded on the lathe with the lathe off and then hand sanded on the lathe with it turned off.

That looks awesome. Good lesson in never taking any piece of wood for granted
