Just thought I'd say hello after just joining today. I've been turning on and off for around 40 years but only seriously for the last 10. Never too young to learn new things though.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Good to have another member from the green country (even if it is only mine by adoption!!



Your pierced bowl looks beautiful - did it all come from a single piece of timber or is the lid from a separate piece altogether?

If you can create such superb items, you are going to put many of us to shame, I'm afraid - we all aspire to your standards, but some of us do not have 40 years experience!!

Mike.

This is my first time of posting but I have been watching the forums for a long time now.

What a beautiful piece of work. How do you pierce it like that?

Reply to Matt.

The piercing is done freehand using a dremel tile cutter bit and nerves of steel :p
