As we are moving back to the U.K. fairly soon I thought that I would like to be able to give some of our freinds and neighbours a small gift? One of those friends gave me some wild cherry a while back and as it's such a lovely wood I thought that would be the ideal wood.

I was going to do 12 of them, but as one went BANG there are 11. As I went through the bottom of another there is now one of cherry/tulip tree too X( : I also decided to do a couple in that lot for us and the one with the center in it is one of them.

It's not difficult cutting a taper out of the center, turning a tapered plug and fitting it. Just a bit of care that I didn't do a repeat and go throug h again i-)

And the difference between the non spalted and spalted is incredible

They are about 4 1/2 to 5" and the logs cut to length and then in 1/2 down the heart and mounted on a screw chuck to turn the base. Then re mounted on my O'Donnel jaws and the top turned. It's lovely wood to turn and takes a very nice finish. I still have a couple of the logs left and they will be cut to length and packed to bring back with us. Well! They are much too good to burn!

Ta to you all folks. I'm pleased to hear that Mrs's T's bowl hasn't fell to bits Thumps :o Only kiddin mate :-

And for my next trick :o

I am trying to do a ball inside a cube. So far I have got me ball rattling around in the cube and I'm trying to sort out a way of holding the ball and letting the cube be held still so that I can get the ball properly round and spherical like :-? :-? Easy peasy?

as Brucie used to say "Good game, good game" :-\
