This is my first offering of 2011, not actually turned in my shed but took a trip to see the Wildman!!!!!
The original plan was to take a plain piece of sycamore and turn out a shape for Steve to paint and texture. However when I turned the outside we found the ripples and decided against painting it. It is far from perfect but we had a good time.
I am looking forward to turning far more this year, plans are afoot :D
Happy New Year to you all.
Rich

Very nice mate, simple crisp lines, and, as ever, some pretty fancy wood!
Nice!

Hi Rich,

These are both very nice platters.

Really like the very wide surface on them and they look like they would make very good useable platters too.

I also like your simple treatment of the bottom.

Cheers,

Lee.

Thanks guys, some really nice comments :D

To be fair I turned this a while ago but never got round to sorting out the back and polishing it, finished it off today at work.
Beech and acrylic







I hope you like :D

Yes Steve basically the same, apart from doing the back first and parting through from the front.
Would you like to have a crack at one sometime?

they all look like their very nice, lovely pieces of wood, can see why you didn't colour that bowl.

Three nice pieces there Rich, a splash of colour in the right places is never going to harm a nice piece of wood :D

I like the photo frame!!

That was good fun, made even more mess though :roll: I will have to sort the shed out sometime soon.

Ash bowl with some ripple

I know this is old hat to most but I enjoy taking WIP pics so here are some. I also use them at school for display and to help explain to the kids.
