    A few odds and ends

    A few different things.I'm afraid I get bored just doing traditional bowls and goblets etc and can't help playing with tatty wood and trying something new.

    Heres a few different ones.


    Oak, 4" dia


    Yew the bottom is left original for the main part, just smoothed a bit for handling




    Yew with ebonised oak spout (too tight to buy the real thing

    Very innovative and interesting. I think the fly on the second bowl appreciates it too.

    Nice work, Pete. The yew with the oak spout is my favorite of the bunch.

    Those are really unique and attractive turnings, Pete. I think I like the candle holder best and I may try that myself.

    Question - How the heck did you turn that fly? Can you post a tutorial?
