    Chas, you have some of the nicest woods, and so many different species Very cool wood. You also use them well in your turnings, great shapes and forms highlighting what your wood has to offer, well done

    Wayne & Co. regarding the woods, like Pete and many of the "Brits" in our particular circle, I deliberately give less than perfect local wood store room for a couple of years to see what develops.
    Nature has a great way of providing all the trimmings needed, letting me get away with simpler designs requiring a lower skill/commitment/concentration level.

    That has real eye appeal in shape and wood.

    Don't believe him His skill level is awesome. It's the engineer in him. We do however use a lot of wood that I suspect you guys would put on the fire as often the true beauty is hidden inside. Also it's a heck of a lot cheaper.

    Definitely some cool wood. Lots going on in that piece.

    Pete not all the bad wood over here ends up in the fire. My most recently finished piece was from a chunk of wood destined for the fireplace, but it was too hard for the neighbor to split into manageable chunks. I told the neighbor I could fix the wood for him.
