Thank you for the nice comments that's just a few bits of what I have done.

I will take another photo of every thing that's in the house there are some other bits that I have given the family and some fire wood :oops:

Greg I have spent about 6 hours a day in the garage on the lathe I have been off work due to illness and this has helped me get going again.


Thanks Matt

Amazing output and quality considering how many different forms and techniques you have tackled in such a short time with success. Hollow forms, boxes, inlays, bowls, natural edge, goblets...no wonder we are all jealous. =D>

Some nice looking bits there Matt, any chance of some more detailed photos of a couple of the bits? Good photos show items up so much better.

That little box with the two red bands looks interesting.

Hi David
The black ring is burnt in with copper wire and the copper looking inlay is copper wire super glued in a groove then sanded with a 1200 grit sand paper
the day I did the inlay it was cold in the garage and I had trouble getting the glue to hold the wire.

Regards Matt
