I managed to get into the shed for a good days turning, well good for me.

1st is a Walnut bowl about 6 1/2" X 2", I found this piece of walnut in my wood pile. Finished with sander sealer and woodwax22.

Crikey Derek you’ve been busy lately, is this because you’re work is selling so well you are having to keep up with demand, as well as having a bit of fun in the shed?

Nice work as always and what a lovely piece of Walnut you had lurking in your wood pile.

Thank you Steven. All three are replacement stock just one more to do. I must get and set up the extraction pipe work as I have some more connector just turned up. The system I had was just temporary having to move 1 pipe from machine to machine. Now I will have more than 1 outlet

Love the spalting on the Walnut it really stands out, and the pens are great, I'm starting to like the acrylics more and more.

The Walnut bowl I was going to do a sweeping curve rather than a more upright shape but the grain dictated that it would look better and show it off a bit better.

Yes I have been doing quite a bit of the polyester pen blanks lately as I have been casting my own(well learning too). I need to turn some more in wood

Ahh so they are polyester ones, I've used a few of the chestnut acrylics but not the polys, are they similar to turn?(hardness etc)

They are harder than the acrylics and can chip if you are not careful but once you get use to them they can finish lovely. Other than that turn as you would for Acrylics

These two are my own castings as I just edited in my last post as I forgot to put it in

Nice casting, do you sell some of your castings as blanks? I would be interested! Thanks again

I don't sell any as I have just started, The red and white was the first one and the camouflage was about the fourth attempt. I would need to be able to get consistent results to sell them.
