Thanks Les.
If I'm honest I thought it was a little chunky as I was turning each part, but it works well as a finished piece.

I'm kinda on the fence with this one Dennis. Although I really like the styling of the bowl itself, I'm not too taken by the chunky foot. Maybe a more pronounced taper on the foot would have suited it better.

That said, it's a very good piece of work.

Hi Steve. It's as good as it's gonna get. Still need to wear a gauntlet for doing anything but I've learned to live with it.

Thanks Derek. Will hopefully have some more soon.

Cheers Richard. I'd never heard of one before until it was suggested I make one.
All the signs are health is heading in the right direction, so fingers crossed.

I made this a few months ago as a gift for a friend with a love of baking.

Mainly done in spalted sycamore, the insert on the plate is sapele.

Sanded to 1200 & finished with 6 coats of tung oil.

This was the last piece I made before the surgeons came calling, so please be kind. lol.

Thanks gents. Still a few weeks away from being in the full swing of things, but once I get started I'll get some posts n pics up.

After many many months of being incapacitated due to various injuries & surgical procedures (none due to woodwork, I must add) I'm now almost ready to get back to the tools & machines - and no doubt bug the life out of a few of you with silly novice type questions. Hopefully it won't be long til I get some more pictures up for your amusement too. Lol.

Very nice Derek.
I particularly like the clock.

Hi David,
Just to echo, definitely as sharp an edge as possible with fine cuts for this.
It's not so long since I was having the same issue, but the guys on here got me sorted out with their great advice.
As Derek says, if you have a club local to you then it would be a good idea to go along.
Everyone has to start somewhere, and we don't forget that.
Whether it's on here or through a club, you won't go far wrong with any advice, hints & tips offered to you.
All you need do is ask.
Once you get your tool sharpening sorted out, it's all down to prctice, practice, practice.
You'll get there sooner than you think, but always remember to progress at your own pace.

Cheers Dave.
Should be up n at it again this weekend, but with the time of year I'm gonna struggle to do much properly til into January.
Still, gives physio time to work on it.

Cheers Richard.
I'm more than happy with the healing so far (although it did take a few weeks longer than I'd hoped).
The tendons & ligaments will be fine in their own time, just need to wear the gauntlet (splint) when I'm doing anything so they stay supported.

Dennis, I can't say much more than anyone else already has.
That's a really nice pen.
Whether you keep it or sell it, it'll look great in anyone's hand.
Thread: more items for craft fair

Very nice work again Dennis.
I like the breadboard in particular.
The contrast between the walnut & onyx really makes it a stand-out for me.
Haven't tried experimenting with inserting other materials yet, but will do sooner rather than later.

Finally got my cast off.

The broken & cracked bones have healed without the need for surgery, just need the ligaments & tendons to follow suit.
Back next week for an injection into my tendons (I feel an ouchy moment coming up ) which should speed things up a bit there.
As for the ligaments, it's physio & time that'll sort them out.

Overall, I'm a happy bunny at the moment.
Full approval from the doc to do as much turning as I like, and can start driving again.

Now to find the time to switch the lathe back on.
Probably do a couple of things this weekend - just for practise, of course.

Don't mind you saying at all Derek.
All advice is welcomed.
I agree with you about the cards too, and most of them were taken away just before the doors opened (didn't get a chance to retake the pic) as I kinda though it was a bit too much myself.

Certainly am Bill.
If I didn't watch the experts I'd never know how much I still have to learn.
Thankfully, this forum has many experts.

Very nice Dennis.
Lovely piece of wood, I think the chunky look suits it.

Thanks Bill.
If I hadn't been doing the fair, I'd no doubt have been in the stupid category too.
It's just something we do.
