This month’s club challenge was something with a finial. I have wanted to see if I could do an 18” finial, just for the heck of it. I was able to do it.

Now one of the questions is “so what”. I did it for my own satisfaction, but it appears like “show-off”. What is your opinion as I am struggling to even take it to the meeting.

Tihs is the only turning I have an appropriate name for.

definitely take it to the meeting.

showing off a bit - that’s sort of the purpose of the club challenges As well as seeing the different things people bring in.

you may win the “tallest“ maybe not.

Nothing to do with turning--and i can't speak for others--but i tend to see "show-off" more in attitude & spirit than in the occurrence itself. Just asking the question in the way you did gives me the sense you'll have the right mindset. If you brought that to a meeting i was at, i'd be grateful for having had the opportunity to see it in person.
