Many thanks for the link Richard, there is some nice wall art on that site.
Derek the on off switch is on my head stock . I also had a go at multi centre turning mate, i think that i need to practice a litle bit more. (well lots more if i'm honest)
Here is my first try at multi centre turning.

I think an investment in a air brush is all that is needed now Les just to highlight the patterns.
By the way great effort next one will be easier now you know what to expect

Hi Les, we had the pleasure of proffesinal wood turner George Foweraker do a demo at our club this year and his forte is wall art and he exsplained the dangers of not being able to reach the on off switch, and what he did was plug the lathe into a exstention lead and had the socket down by his feet. he also paints and scorches his work take a look at his web site he got a good blog. www.artistry-in-wood.co.uk hope this helps
