This little holder was requested by Carmine ( in the 4th photo) to hold rings and have the mushroom shape to match the mushroom that she bought from me at a craft show. She designed it and I turned it out of Eucalyptus. It is a gift to her and a sales sample to get orders for more.
It is finished with EEE and Shellawax.

Hi Mads. How about that. I never checked the time on your post! Carmine was very happy with her ring holder.

Roger, we have a 31 ft Itasca motorhome and I set the lathe up right behind it. I get a less visitors now than when I had it along side the unit.

Pete, I am finishing up all the cut pieces I have on the pile.I will tear down the lathe station on the 11th and we move out of here on the 19th. I have some flat wood working projects for the upcoming craft sale on the 16th.
Can’t wait to get back to my shop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
