Being kept busy again Dennis. You can't have many more shows before Christmas.
At this rate you will be able to afford a new car for the good lady

Very nice work Dennis, love the natural edge work - you are certainly knocking everything out very quickly at the moment!

hi Steve
a lot of turners shy away from this type of turning. it is just like normal bowl turning all you have to do is keep your fingers behind the rest and you are ok.

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.

well just got back from my last craft fair for this year . i didn't do to bad with a few sails totaling £32 that has paid for the table and a little bit of profit. i have also been asked if i would like to put any of my turnings in to the trincomalee shop on a sail or return basis.
also they asked if i am interested in doing any turning for the ship with timber that has come of the ship. i will have a think over the next few days and let you all know what i have decided to do ( probably say yes to both).

Dennis I just looked up Tricomalee on Google, go for the wood and make something wonderful.
 
Mind you Tricomalee in Sri Lanka sounds good in this weather

The name probily is not that far out from the place Ron as the ship was made in Mumbai at the Bombay docks and was launched on 12 October 1817.
