only the best when they keep getting bowl blanks of this quality. I have another 2 yew blanks to turn and a little part turned bowl from him that I don't know what timber it is.

well back in the shed tonight to get more of the blanks turned that I got yesterday. firstly is a freebie, I finished a part turned bowl that didn't look like much but when I started turning I found that it is a bit of myrlle burr ( searched the net to find that out).

the second was a large blank of yew 12"x4". there is still 1 more yew blank to turn and that is 15 1/2"x3" . I got all of this for £30 not a bad hall I think. all comments welcome

Very nice Yew bowls Dennis. I love Yew, it polishes up so well and have used it to make a few bandsaw boxes, which is my 'thing'. They sell so well.

Nice job Dennis, Oak burrs are one of my favorite materials to work with, they look amazing, what finish did you use?
