Beautiful, but wet, Mid-Wales
Here are some photos of a large yew pot I have just finished turning. The wood was very hard, and I had to keep sharpening my gouge every 5 minutes or so. The cracks which can be seen clearly on the bottom of the bowl were getting larger all the time, and I stopped turning when I got too worried about the whole thing coming apart and flying off the lathe.

Any comments (good or bad!!) would be welcome.

Lovely! Can't wait to attack some of the yew I have at home, although I probably won't be able to come close to something as good as that.
