    Hole in one

    Turned from a piece of Chestnut burr and finished with Danish oil and a coat of woodwax22. This has been the first piece after my hospital visit and boy did it feel good to be back turning.
    Size is 4 1/2" tall by 5 1/2" wide

    I'm sure you were glad to be back making saw dust.
    That's a nice piece of timber you used.
    Best regards

    Lovely shape, wall thickness is just right. The hole adds a bit of mystery. Excellent piece.
    Stop trying to make everyone happy, you're not beer.

    Thank you guys. I was hoping it would turn out larger but due to the structure of the burr I think it would have just fallen apart, but never mind I have some even larger pieces to play with
