    Born of Frustration

    Yesterday was supposed to be half a dozen candle holders for someone, nature had different ideas and stock had too many faults for practical use showing up half way through the preparation.
    Ended up with a quick consolation spin of a couple of the pieces just to calm the frustration.

    I suppose you need to keep getting frustrated. Those are nice looking pieces.

    Nice work, Chas. Sometimes the wood doesn't have the same plans we do.

    Supposed to whittle till what's in the wood comes out. It's in there somewhere we just don't know what.

    Nice work Chas. They turned out great I think! Ive been there,done that sort of thing...I had turned a piece of walnut for a flute...just an ordinary piece I thought...Once turned it had some great figure inside it..And another piece.... a piece of olive wood I had to handle with care as it had some bad places in it but is going to turn out good....... when I finish it...I would turn it and see a bad spot..fill it with sawdust or turquoise glue and come bad later...Some pieces can be challenging..
