Thread: Rocking horse
22/02/2017 17:21:42

Absolutely fantastic what a great horse an heirloom to be kept and past down the family. I bet they think Grandad is the best

Thread: 3rd hollow form
17/02/2017 13:30:12

Another nice hollow form Dennis. The only thing for me is I feel the foot area could have been a little smaller and giving it a slight lift to the foot would make it float more

Thread: 35y falklands rememberance plate.
17/02/2017 13:28:14

Well done and made for a good reason

Three great pieces Dennis. I think the last one is my favourite one.

I must get my machine out and have a play now that I have a extractor which can be used with it I can do burning in the house

Thread: holow form.

Nice hollow form Dennis. I must say that the shape of the finial is not to my taste but I like the height of it in proportion to the form itself

Thread: Coloured Box

Well it looks great now but if you feel it just needs that little bit extra you know what's've become a pro!! 😉😊

I just feel it is a little heavy looking and the new one allows you to see the shape at the bottom have put it together just need to apply the finish before posting the new picture.

I tend to sit a piece on the side and look at it for a while and the odd bit needs tweaking but most seem OK

Wrong colour for a lemon Derek! You got the problems sorted and came up with an unusual box.

Was the fun in the journey or the destination?


The fun is all of it even when it goes wrong as there is always something to learn even from mistakes. I am at the moment making a second stand for it just to see if it will look any better, it will be the same shape but will have cut outs so that some of the bottom of the box can be seen I will post a photo when I complete it

Not done much in the way of turning lately.
This is a piece that I started at the beginning of the week but went wrong a couple of times and had to repaint it. The main pod is Ash and the ring stand is cherry. The wife thought I was making a lemon well with all the problems I felt like one.

Thread: Plant Pot from recycled wood
30/01/2017 15:44:07

Good looking planter David. Will the watering eventually rot the wood as it looks like you have not treated it in any way

Thread: Trend T11 router problem
20/01/2017 15:48:33

Thread: Latest pens
19/01/2017 21:35:59

Was in the shed today making a artic tractor unit I was sweating as the sun was coming straight through the window to where I was working the only problem was it never reached my feet.

Hope you are up and running soon

19/01/2017 19:04:23

Thank you Marc. It was great as these were the first things out of the workshop this year

Thread: Trend T11 router problem
19/01/2017 18:16:55

Brushes could be one of the problems check them first, another could be a broken power lead. And I have even known and seen a wire to break on the armature when the motor speeds up centrifugal force can cause it to break contact and when it slows it returns to where it was making a contact, this last one had me looking for ages until I found it.

I use to repair things like this for a living

Thread: Latest pens
18/01/2017 19:10:11

A couple of my latest pens using my home cast blanks the main picture is an Omega fountain pen in chrome kit and the second is a Baron Rollerball in chrome kit

Thread: Turning salted silver birch
17/01/2017 14:42:34

I was wondering what Salted silver birch was but reading Derek's reply realised it should have been Spalted.

I can see you being told to either give up using some woods or as Derek pointed out about the chap at the woodfest in as much that you will need to cover up more with better protection.

Also better extraction in the shed not just a source. Making sure it extracts dust to the outside.

I removed the e mail address as it is not a good idea to put them on open forums. You will still get an e amil saying that you have a PM

Thread: Some pyro work
07/01/2017 17:47:27

Thank you Marc. I got the machine for my 60th birthday present in November
