    I don't know that you've ever made anything mundane Chas...

    Unless you've got some old articles for sale in a restaurant in New Mexico.

    That looks great btw.

    Darren you cracked me up laughing.

    Chas this looks very much like a funeral urn category to me. Nice wood, finish and overall turning but shape has me thinking it contains someones ashes. Maybe the english cricket teams

    They would be rather older ashes I think, trying to head down this way with forms for a break in routine.

    Wow, Chas. That is another nice one. I don't think I have ever thought your work was mundane.

    Yep, I wouldn't even think about putting the word mundane anywhere near that!
