Wood Turning

My version of a Mortis and Pestle

I was inspired by your mortis and pestle and tried my hand at making my own. I was gifted a couple of Eucalyptus logs from a local country club (tracked them down via a posting I put on Craigslist). The logs had a lot of big cracks and more than a few insect holes but I was able to get a couple of good pieces to turn. I am fairly new to woodturning but I am having a GREAT time. I think the little burned in accent lines just take the piece to the next level.

Keep up the GREAT videos and inspiration.
