Fantastic!! Where do you purchase your pig suede from, if you don’t mind telling? Cheers Robyn
Thanks.
I bought the whole pigskin from ebay for £40 inc delivery…

However i got a courteousy call from them to provide advice and make sure it’s the correct product for my needs (very helpful). They also said it would be cheaper if i bought direct next time and they had a much larger range direct than what they list on ebay, so will give them a call next time…

Made another podlet today, chose a piece of sherry that was cut back in August, unfortunately it started to split as I was turning it but it held together and I managed to finish it, heavily soaked it in Danish oil, hopefully it won't crack any more, also broke my live centre while roughing the branch down 😥😥😥

Small little drawers I made as a gift, oak body and Bolivian rosewood faces with half blind dovetails.

A worse crime is if you read and understood the instruction.

And another crime is you missed the "be" on your post, "cause" is a totally different meaning to because.

This is what I have done a couple of times with end-of boards that have cracks and shakes in them. I cut out the offending section and glue other off-cuts between. This hides the fact the grain won't line up but also makes for a larger bowl. This is a bowl from a mahogany end piece crossed with two strips of teak (brown), three strips of what I thought was Sycamore but it has orange coloured flecks which I've never seen before. I know it is not Maple. It's 320mm wide and 70mm high.

I needed an adapter for my cyclone dust extractor so I could use a 1000M3/H extractor. 100mm to 45mm. Even at low quality print, it took 4 hours. High quality would have been 12 hours. I use an old Aquavac at the moment. It works very well, but I thought the large extractor would work better.
It was garbage, just too much loss through the cyclone. I'll just make another adaptor for the bottom and use it as a funnel.

Seen some very effective planks like that turned into a dinning room table with coloured epoxy or similar about 75mm wide joining them together, rough edges/bark left on.
