    Ornamental cherry

    Ornamental cherry which once stood in my garden. Turned from the trunk which is only 6" diameter as it was only a young tree. Finished with Acrylic sander sealer and an Acrylic gloss lacquer. Measures 6 1/2" X 4 1/2" X 3 1/2". Managed to lose the bark amongst the shavings so no chance of sticking it back on.

    Hello Derek

    You never cease to amaze me. Did you turn this wet first?
    Well done.

    Cheers

    Well done turning a "propeller". Tough piece to turn consistent wall thickness. Good job.
    If I'm ever on life support unplug me. Then plug me back in. See if that works.

    The tree was cut down about two years ago and I turned this in a semi-wet state and turned it to completion in one go. If it is going to move it should do so without any splitting due to the thickness of the piece.

    As I tell many people especially at the club take it slowly and always keep fingers/hands behind the rest, and for turning to the thickness work from the rim in small stages to completion before moving on to the next stage and never go back as that is when problems occurr.
    Most of the sanding was done by hand (I am not putting my hands in a spinning piece) with the lathe turned off.
