Here is a batch of simple form snowmen. The turning club I am a member of has a LOT of maple spindles for sale and I made these from that wood. After I turn to shape, I take a small, hand-held blowtorch and burn the hats. I wipe the char away and then apply 1 coat of 50/50 mineral spirits/tung oil. I am VERY happy with these results. Takes about 20-30 minutes per snowman from turn to burn to finish.
