Some spare time and scrap woods, I turned some mushroom shapes. These will be used as added elements to a fairy garden ,y wife plans to display in our egress window. Seems simple enough. Just scraps, some are two pieces other are solid. I finished these with bees wax and lemon oil, after a sanding up to 400 grit. Just a simple relaxing time at the lathe.

Looks good, sometimes the simple projects are the best ones to do. And with turning it improves the skills. Great job.

They can be addictive:) I assume the tall Red Top at the back is a 2 piece turn?
