    all of these bowls are made from segments of different woods to give contrast and different grain patterns, finished with French polish and beeswax.

    If I was Sue I would not feed him if he keeps playing on that lathe instead of mending the blooming van

    Very nice Roger .. must have a try on your lathe when we visit, will bring some wood.

    I get off cuts of oak and beech from a local furniture factory £5 a sack.. .. they sell it for fire wood .. :Sad:

    haven't done much recently but this is a selection of mine.. problem is, every time someone visits they ask for one ..

    I don't need to bend to use the lathe, besides two of the pot pouri bowls are Christmas pressies for her sisters:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Similar I agree but not the same theirs shows items whilst mine shows letters.

    Nice ones Jim you are obviously getting a better finish than me. I have a number of bowl blanks and they will follow my foray into making a few eggcups.

    You're both so talented, they're beautiful.
    Several years ago, after a particularly stressful period at work, I bought a wood turning day for myself. Loved it, so relaxing and very proud of myself when I made 2 bowls (with help!!) I totally failed making a stair spindle tho'.
    It was something I wanted to try again, especially as Mike had a lathe and loved woodwork. sadly, it was just another thing we didn't get to do. :cry:

    My uncle made me a table lamp out of different woods for a thank you for helping him when he was ill and taking my aunt to visit him in hospital etc.
    This means a lot to me as it is beautiful and is a nice reminder of him now he has passed away it sits in my living room and is something I will treasure as I know how much time and care he put into it.
    I have never seen anything like his designs anywhere else he was a retired miner but very talented with wood,this means a lot more to me as it was made by him at the end of his days and not purchased so to me is priceless
