Very rough 17kg candlestick needs to be much lighter nearer to the top, make it more stable. Will have a100mm wide candle mounted. Had some trouble fiitting it on the lathe and taking it from square to round took forever at 500rpm.
Todays effort small sycamore traditional thistle lidded pot. Turned out quite nicely.
Ash log opened up drilled planed and sanded with wee bit of wax to make them smile. Got some woodseal splash to rub away, other than that job done.
Last piece of spalted Ash branch converted, had this for years and had to dip bowl gouge in water to be able to hold it, got so hot. Protected my left hand from hot shavings with parcel tape. Decent small bowl I am content.
Very hot in workshop today, but rewarded with another nice spalted Ash ear ring tree.
Well a bit wee, but my first attempt at a spatular, I am content
Decent piece of sycamore, turned out not bad.
Awkward grain, set me many finishing problems. Managed something eventually but not what I intended. Heyho.
