I had a week off work last week, ostensibly to finish shipping my workbenches and cabinets through to the new shed.
Really though, when it’s this warm who wants to do any work?
Our garden is a proper sun-trap, and this may never be repeated.
I did manage to do a very small amount of turning. This little beech box was rough turned in 2013 following a guide by Phil Irons. I wish now I had photographed the blank before I turned it.
The grain lines up pretty well.
Inside is a bit rough with tool marks still, but it was just a proof of concept so I’m happy enough.
I just love beech. It has to be one of my favourite timbers to work.
I really need to get my benches and cabinets in the shed and finish the framing etc. but I have plenty of time.
Nice work getting some turning done in that heat! I’m already looking forward to fall.
