Woodturning: The Myrtle Kiss !!

Adamsen Woodcraft
This amazing piece of myrtle burl was the subject of a concept I have wanted to try for quite some time. Given the unique shape of this burl cap, it was difficult to reveal a gentle curving shape while also maintaining some of the more interesting features of the natural edge and wood grain. It was a delicate balancing act of approaching the final form one millimeter at a time until the shape felt correct. In the end, I was left with one of the most annoying sanding jobs of my life, trying (and mostly failing) to avoid those nasty points and edges, being relegated to hand sanding for upwards of 6 hours. When my wife saw this piece for the first time, she said it looked like a meringue or a Hershey Kiss, hence the title! Please let me know what you think of this piece by leaving a comment below! I cannot always respond to every comment, but I make time to read each one. I always appreciate feedback, positive or negative. A lot of people as where I find unique wood and burls to turn. I won this particular myrtle burl cap in an Instagram auction by @worldwide_burl. Check him out! He has daily burl auctions.
