Spectacular work Eric, it must have taken you ages to pierce all those pieces. Really lovely and unusual pieces, congratulations.

They are brilliant Eric. Like Steve, number 1 is best for me but the skill and patience you have put into all of them is admirable. What piercig tool did you use - was it a Dremel or similar?

Strewth Eric - proper job works of art I think, not to mention skill and hours of patience in making them. Like Richard and Steve, I think I prefer the natural piece. Brilliant stuff.

What timber have you used for them?

materials used were Oak,Brown Oak,American Cherry,Cherry,Maple,Anjan,Padauk,Beach,Elm,Ash and that abrasive Australian wood I can never remember the name of. The piecing tools I have the small one125W isthe one Argos do,the big one700W with a flexi drive is basicaly a B+Q plasterboard cutter witha flexidrive attachment,but the good thing with it just by the side of the colletchuck on the flexidrive is a small but bright light so you can see what your doing easier,its also got one on the body unit so when you use it as a mini router/plasterboard cutter it also has the light shining on the work,I`ve had this unit about six years,the only problem I`ve had with it was when I was using a rotory saw as a carver and it snagged in my jacket and snapped the inner drive,took me 2 months to find a replacement,which I got from Axminster in the end after searching the world on the net.now the thing is how spectacular can I make the next one haha,cheers,

Eric.
