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.

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

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
