    Holy cow Chas...if any of us cross the pond, do we get lessons and wood? Based on the last several posts, I'm gonna book a flight. As always...well done!! . But what do you do with all those great pieces? Are they sold...given away?

    Very attractive Chas; I like the simple lines and having the glass adds a nice utility.

    All three are very nice, Chaz. How are you hollowing them out?

    No Chuck, just the last one so far, the others were for dried flowers/grass arangements.

    The Beech items go to a regular customer (source of wood) for sale Jim. Others join the collection until someone takes a shine to them, like most home turners I know I've done good when a piece suddenly appears somewhere in the house with added contents.

    Here's a link on our UK forum with WIP pics Vaughn. Haven't invested in any specialist hollowing tools as yet, those mentioned in the linked thread plus a home made Orland tool are all I use.

    Chas,
    That looks like a great forum.. are you allowing membership from us 'colonials' as well... always looking for sources to learn more about this art form.
