I have some advice for you wood turners — it you want to give nice turned items to friends and family for the Holiday, don’t pick something that takes hours and hours to make! Everyone loved these lidded pots and I wanted them all to get one but gosh, I didn’t take into consideration how much time it would take. I should be turning right up to Christmas Eve to get the ones I need done by Christmas day. Fortunately some people we don’t see for a few days later. I am still working on the big pile of walnut. I picked up some Walnut Danish Oil this weekend and boy does that look good! After I get these done I am going to do improvements to the shop.
