Still turning

Hello fellows. I just thought I’d drop a quick line to show you what I’ve been up to this last week or so.

I’m still turning, at the expense of starting my new bench, but I think that just a few more turning projects and the novelty of it will be out of my system. My intention in the future, is to divide my time equally between woodturning and traditional woodworking as far as possible. We’ll just have to see how it goes.

I’ve posted a slideshow below of my latest three projects. 1.my first lidded box, 2. my first goblet – both made out of the same piece of yew – and 3. a pestle and mortar. The pestle is made from iroko but I don’t know what the mortar is made from. It started out as a truly gnarly piece of wood that I had been told was apple. However, it soon became apparent that it was not.

Anyway, let me know what you think of these ‘objets’ in the comments, and I’ll catch you all later.

Take it easy.
