|Spalted Apple lidded box|
This turning is from Spalted Apple and is a lidded box. It is about 3 inches in diameter. Several times in the summer I demo and sometimes I turn these kind of boxes. People like to watch me turn things and many times ask how long before I will finish the piece I'm turning. So I have learned how to finish most small demo pieces on the lathe. I tell people that are interested that the piece will be finished in 1/2 hour and they come back and buy the piece when it is finished. Sold.
