    Great-looking work, Chas. I've got a few pieces of ash in the woodpile that I still need to turn.

    Really beautiful. I have made tea lights but usually flatter than those. I really like them.

    Thanks for the comments folks, just 'cause I don't respond often don't take it that they are not apreciated.
