    Tight fisted turning

    Decided it was time to sort out the scrap box. Ended up with some T lights and some weed / twig pots.

    Note: Tghe weed pots are straight, just bad photography

    Well done Pete. Good use for scraps. Great looking pieces and I like your t-lights. I found myself lately saving any little scrap of wood just in case. Sometimes I save way to much stuff that won't amount to anything instead of saving for like small lidded boxes, jam chucks, etc.

    Believe me Jim, they are all made from scrap. (Just noticed I've posted the weed pots before Apolgies) I'll see if I can dig out some more scrap and do a WIP for KaLea's competition. Probably got enough for some more miniatures at least.

    I liked the idea that they were crooked... off center etc...

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
