hi Derek

thank you for the compliments . they are coming from a anteek dealer that has got several turning blanks that I am gradually getting through. the first one cost me £20 but was marked down as 55. the thin one cost me 10 and I am in the process of turning another that I also got for 10. that will be posted later.

Lovely bit of work as usual Dennis. My favourite is the natural edge at the top of the set.
