I had only turned one stopper (wood) prior to watching Ed Brown's acrylic stopper demonstration this past Saturday at the MPG. I picked up a blank from him that has a Harley Davidson logo embedded in it. Since it was my first try with an acrylic stopper I kept the design simple. I did learn the I need to get a real skew!! I spent more time sanding than I did the actual turning. I am looking forward to doing more!! Thanks Ed!!!
