    OK, I might have known that I would get PUNished by you lot, not something I do myself
    Thanks for the comments all the same.

    Lots more of the same sort of thing to get through following customer request.

    The Yew is a pleasure to turn and finish, although being "home cured" so to speak has some drying splits to contend with which slow things down at times.
    The Cedar, also 'home cured' is a pain to finish due to vastly differing hardness levels across this branch material, its surface absorption is also very different so sealing leads to some unknowns on the colour front until solvents have dried.
