    Chas, very nice turnings, especially the cherry and the yew.
    I'm now busy with turning this time free hand a prunus (we call it ''steenkers'') lidded bowl, it's familar with cherry. Think I post this lidded bowl in a couple of days.
    Do you turn freehand or from sketch?

    Keep them coming. Ad

    Nice pieces all, but I'd say the Laburnum cup really got my attention. Great work, Chas.

    Nice work Chas! I like them all but find the Laburnum striking because of the color variations and grain pattern! Again, very nice work!

    Nice turnings Chas and some very interesting wood. I like them all but I really like that dental hygeine piece.

    Normally all turnings are freehand based on visual perception of the piece of timber, even if form has to accommodate something like a marble cheese platter I tend to vary the wood form to suit the grain etc.

    On the tooth pick holders I do have a sketch and set of dimension limits so that all internal components will have clearance without having to do too much adjustment.

    Nice form and great finish. The Laburnum has some wild figure on it.
