hey are pretty easy to make, either with detachable whorls or fixed ones. I did a few medeiva / tudor stylel ones for someone who does re-enactment as well. Give me a shout if you want instructions

Oh Joy, Oh Joy. At last, someone who can string whole sentences without spelling mistakes, back to front words, use punctuation and so on, and on, and on. 8) 8) 8)
welcome Stormsinger, to the forum.
You would do well to find a forum member living near to you for hands on tuition.
It could save you time, money, and a lot of frustration..:lol:
Best of luck.

I'm quite lucky, I live about 5 miles from Mark Hancock's studio, but also I've been going to the evening class he's been teaching as well :), well worth the effort :)

If I were to buy a lathe, wouldn't you expect me to have done a little research beforehand? :wink:

I have a photo somewhere...........3 spindles I did for some oak furniture I made a couple of years ago. There is a 4th one still in low-earth orbit due to a small knot in the wrong place.

I have no plans for any Christmas presents along the line you evil people are thinking! I have passed Peter Child's place many a time (he is about 5 miles from me), and never once dropped in. Even if I were to slip in there one day, I am slope-immune!
