Hi Sam, the vase within a vase was made out of a large piece of beach that i was given.
I still have to sand and finnish it as it was wet wood when i turned it, It has gone well out of shape now.
The yew fruit bowl i hand carved and hand sanded.
Many thanks for looking Sam, Les

Hi Les, --- If it was not for you on another site that you posted your pics i wouldnt of took the plunge to get my lathe, thankyou for all the advice that you gave me, i am at the moment building a small wooden building just for my lathe as the dust is just to much in my works workshop so have not been turning much, plus i have tried to get on the fields as much as i can but with the crop going in and the winter coming the lathe will hopefully have some good use,
take care and chat soon,

I think the answer's easy - Les turned the vases wet, so the little one must have just shrunk as it dried and popped inside .


Great bit of turning and carving by the way Les.

Hi Les
Those vases must have been interesting to turn, i.e. the bits of fresh air . Well done.

Great answer Simon. I like the way that you think bud.
Hi Mark, cutting air is not as interesting as sanding a vase with a hole in it. Boy does it hurt your fingers when you sand it wrong.
Many thanks for looking. Les
