A nice piece of spalted wood Dennis and the form shows it off a treat a well turned and finished piece. The finial looks just right for it

Thankyou for your kind comments i Have always enjoyed making them but finding it hard work now

So I'm stopping while I'm winning

I've already been asked if I would like to sell it but have declined for now

A compliment indeed if someone wants to buy it. Will it be smaller projects from now on

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

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.
10/02/2017 12:35:26

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

06/02/2017 20:05:23

Thank you both.

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.

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