Step 3: The finished item

Picture of the finished item
once happy with the finished surface on the lathe, i take the piece off, usually oil it or finish it some other way depending on its intended use(s), and burn my signature and the year in the bottom with a soldering iron pyrography point.

i like this piece because it retained some nail holes from its previous life as a pallet as well as the added artsy-fartsy-ness, and challenge, of turning a knot hole.  hope you like it; if not, such is life - all i'm out is a little time and a chunk of pallet wood  :)
Nice job! Love it!
