Acorn Box

made from Maple and Sapele and finished in U Beaut friction polish. The 10p coin gives an idea of the actual size of this box.

I have just bought a CL3 CAM lathe from record power.  This the first thing that i made on it.  I broke the tool rest on my sealey SM42 while trying to turn a yew log.  I managed to get a really good tight fit between the two parts.  It is finished with U Beaut friction polish and burnished with the U Beaut polishing creme I forget what it is called.

Thank you, I have registered with then record web site.  I visited Isaac Lord last week for some spindle oil and they said that if there are any problems Record are excellent at sorting out problems.  Hopefully i will never have to find out.
