The daily woodturning blog.

My next door neighbor turned 40 last week. Her husband turned 40 last year and I made him a small urn as a joke gift. I wanted to do something similar for her but didn't have much lead time and didn't want to over emphasize the 40th part of the 40th birthday.
The underside of the lid has a small button where I burned her initials, 40th, and 2011. I'm not 100% happy with the shape and the finish but I was out of time. She was thrilled with the gift and that's what counts. Her husband helped me unload this wood when we brought it back from Idaho about 5 years ago so there was a small personal connection with it.
