Hi Dennis

Yet another beautifully tunned and finished piece.

You seem to do quite a lot of craft fairs. Is it because you enjoy the public turning demonstrations or because they are an outlet for your products? Do the selling prices cover your time standing at the fairs? I know they will not cover your turning and finishing time but then the production is for love isn't it?

hi All

thank you for your comments.

as for the amount of craft fairs the turning club i am with has a commitment to go out and demonstrate to the community as part of the original grant criteria that was imposed on them so as they could get the money needed to set up the club. we have about 18 ish during the year so i try and get to as many as i can to help out and also sell my items. and yes i do like to demonstrate to the public
