Project Information

Here are a few boxes I turned for my wife from left to right it goes Maple, Myrtle, Maple. I really like the Myrtle one and so does she. Also I recently did a Myrtle bowl for my wife. I have been on a myrtle kick lately. I really like the look of it and it turns well.

That myrtle is gorgous. Very nice turnings. I had a peice of myrtle once, but it did'nt look anything like that. I bought it off ebay, maybe I got burned.

The myrtle has a nice color, looks alot like walnut, maybe even better. I've never worked with that type of wood. How is it to work with?

Great group of turnings. Nice shapes and woods. That myrtle is sweet to turn. Seems to cut smooth, without much tare out. Finishes great too.

Keep it up.

Scrappy
