Eugene, that is really good. Couldn't you learn to hold the tools with your feet? That guy in Morocco does OK. Still a bit late as the lathe is gone already.

I have virtually had to give up playing the guitar as I can no longer hear when its in tune. Takes the fun out. Also means that making them is awkward too as tuning the wood is so important to the response. This age thing is a right PITA. I didn't sign up for it and I didn't get the choice. Bad deal there somewhere. Commiserations.

Pics are fine :D

If you click ONCE on the pic, you can rename it. Alternatively, you can do it in iPhoto before you export them.

Two great pieces Eugene, certainly proof that your safari into the murky world of turning was not wasted even if looking at them now brings a measure of frustration at not being able to do any more.

Ye gods Eugene,

Where have you been hiding these?? Another beauty.

As Chas says, you do at least have these lovely things and can look back with pride at what you were able to achieve.

(was that a Mac joke I spied in Chas's response????)

They are lovely, Eugene.
I hadn't read you are calling it a day. I am really sorry to hear that. I love looking at your work and reading your posts.
As others said above, do please keep posting, and if you are able to turn again, please do - We'll miss your work ALOT !!
Cheers
Greg

Greg, there's no way that we could get rid of Eugene that easy mate. You know, bad penny, keeps on turning up an all that :twisted: :twisted:

Those are rather nice bowls Eugene. I for one look forward to seeing more of what you have done mate :mrgreen:

Both are lovely and I love the edges! They really do focus your concentration don't they.. Keep em coming boy!!

This one is for you Gordon , I think the wood is London Plain may not be :roll:
It's 200 x 110 x 12mm Approx. Finished with sanding sealer.


Thats very generous of you Eugene :D Will you be offended if I tell you that I would prefer the first one?? :lol:

I suspect you may have had some assistance with the holes but nature seems quite inventive at times.

I have pics of every turning I have done in iPhoto. Occasionally I look back through to monitor progress and to laugh at how chuffed I was with the early efforts. I definitely won't be posting some of THEM on the forum. I hope you carry on though.
