I was able to spend a little time at the lathe yesterday afternoon
while Bill took a deep nap.
I removed all of the blankets from the plants
I tried saving with mixed results.
So what am I making?
No, it is not a horn!
It's a twig vase!
( I have purchased glass vials to glue inside
so the vase can hold water to use it for a bud vase, too.)
I received the full array of sanding grits and couldn't wait to put them to use.
What a difference!
The smooth surface is beyond what I was able to achieve before!
I sure am learning that the finishing touches
take as long as it does to turn the item!
Sanding sealer has been applied
and today, I will sand and polish throughout the day
until I have a deep sheen to show off the grain of this camphor branch.
