    Back again

    It seems a long time since I was last on here. Been doing lots of boring bits and pieces but managed to squeeze a few more interesting things in to relieve the tedium. Here's a few of them

    Spalted sycamore 9" diameter and 3" tall.


    This is made of acacia and is 11" diameter

    Thanks for looking. I'll post more later.

    I agree, all three are great-looking bowls. First one looks like as if it was made from marble.

    Thank you all. I seem to have been a bit busy doing mundane things like crochet hooks and drop spindles. not exactly mind blowing but it helps put food on the table. Hopefully I'll be doing a few more interesting pieces ready to stock up for the season
