This was fun but difficult to keep the stem from breaking. Used dark cherry stain and a couple coats of wipe on poly, with some 00000 steel wool.

Mike, I like this piece.

What about your photography? These are not sharp. Perhaps if you used a tripod to hold the camera steady, it would make the pictures more in focus. Or maybe it’s a resolution issue. What resolution do you set when taking pic’s?

I don’t know to be honest. I usually use my photo fix it to sharpen the image. I’ll work on it. thanks Don, mike

Hey, Mike. I could have used four of these for the wine bottle and glass holder that I made. Cherry would have dressed it up nicely. Looks like you’ve been making up for lost time. Glad to see you are turning these art pieces, again.

Nice work. Very delicate stem on your turning! One of my favorite woods – cherry.

sweeeeeeet.

You are really taking some long strides, and the work is great. Making a long stem like that takes some real patience and finess. Good work. Glad your eyes are on the mind, don’t fall on that tail bone again!

love you brother,
Mark

Thanks, Mike the feeling is mutual. You’re gonna have to enlighten us more on that falling on your back incident.

at the first woodshow we went to this winter they had a lot of lathes going. One gentleman was making this bowl/plate. Maybe I’ve mentioned this already but your thin/fragile-looking stem reminded me of this plate. The one section of it was so thin you could see light through it. I asked if I could touch it and it was like a piece of paper moving between my fingers. It was amazing how he got it so thin without breaking through—just as you got this stem so thin without it snapping.
i’m so impressed.
