This project was a challenge and a joy to turn. I used Cherry and Cedar to make the bowl wide enough. Then it was just a matter of making the post for the brass nutcracker wheel and hollowing the bowl to hold a bunch of nuts.

Here’s this weeks video: Nutcracker

Thanks

Great looking, the nut cracker is almost as good as your bowl.

Can’t take credit for the brass. Got that as a gift from someone, to give this project a try.

For this, I used the O.B. Shine Juice…. 3 parts mixture of shellac, linseed oil and denatured alcohol.
Thanks for watching ;)

Great job on the turning, any nut would like that. I’ll have to add something like this to the to do list.
