Xmas gifts

Last minute Xmas stuff today…

Turned a rough pencil holder/thingy for my grandfather.  I think its locust.  Found it when I cut an old apple tree earlier this year.  It has some weird anomalies where the branches met the trunk.  Seems like there were a bunch of similar downed trees in that area.  This piece doesn’t have a noticeable anomaly, I just used a plain section.  Turned the top and bottom.  Wire brushed and sealed the rough part.  Drying overnight.  Just in time!  I made a piece from an abnormal section, which I’ll post later.  Its a gift for someone who looks at my tumblr page often.

Also roasted 6 batches of coffee on the stove top as last minute presents.  That’s enough to make me seriously consider starting my roaster build.

And I had time to work on a secondary bench for my new shop.  I’ll post a few pics of that later…

Happy holidays if you like that kind of thing!
