    Personal Challenge - and a bit of fun.

    I thought it was about time I gave up smoking but as a bit of an incentive decided to put a few £'s away each week and treat myself somewhere down the line. Rather than buy a moneybox I thought I'd make one and have a bit of fun in the workshop. This is 12" x 1 3/4", turned in two parts just...

    First Pictures

    I thought that as I've entered this years challenge I'd better make sure I could load some photo's as I don't want a mad panic at the end of the month. Anyway here are two of my recent attempts, the first one is a small hollow form made from sycamore, as it was plain I experimented with a green...
