I had a long weekend off work, so naturally spent most of it in the shed. I spent much of that time converting logs into blanks for turning later, but I did manage to turn a couple of items too. This rattle will be a gift for someone, and is beech – finished with olive oil.
I’m quite pleased with this, as it needed almost no sanding.
I will finish the bread knife handle next weekend, and hopefully finish the large round nose scraper I have been making. I’ve been drying some sycamore from a blow down I harvested just after “hurricane Bawbag” back in December 2011, so should be able to produce something interesting from that.
Time will tell.
