Post: RE: Build Thread for my Brother's Urn

Great job, Frank. Nice looking vase which will be a fine tribute to your brother's memory. I'm assuming it was Thanksgiving last year that you lost him.

Another endorsement for Hock. Even though it's not an exotic steel, it holds an edge a very long time. If you also get the Hock chip breaker, you may need to file the mouth open a bit, since the com...

That's aged nicely! I love the way cherry ages. I made a tool cabinet from cherry and just used BLO as the finish. No toners or dyes. It's a beautiful deep orange-red now
