Very well done Pete. Really nice small turnings.
Retirement: That’s when you return from work one day
and say, “Hi, Honey, I’m home – forever.”
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
It's good to see somebody ELSE making a few li'l bitty turned pieces for once!
Here's a few minis I've done:
Phillipine ebody, tagua finial:
Fiddleback maple plate & bowl (that's not tearout on the plate):

I'm pretty sure a 5p piece is foreign money. Nice work on the nearly invisible bowl and vase though
Great Job there. It's hard to do details on mineatures.
Our doll houses, this side of the pond, are not as grand, they are 1/12 scale.
If I remember correctly, your 5p is about the size of our nickle (5 cents).

"The great thing about turning is that all you have to do is remove what's not needed and you have something beautiful. Nature does the hard part!"
I'll bet you guys had to add a lot of ballast to your lathes to be able to swing those monsters without having your lathes go walking across the shop. The sanding must have been a killer, too.
Great work, both of you.
