Odd requests

Being a woodturner means that every now and then you get some unusual requests. This week I have been asked to make a pair of wedding rings in Lignum Vitae, a handle for a sword for a martial arts exponent and some bobbins for a spinning wheel.. Oh well, they say variety is the spic of life. I'll post some pictures when done.

Bean tree wood: rustic bowl

 This bowl is approx 10" diameter and 8" tall and is made from a bean tree (or part of one anyway LOL) I love these pieces with loads of contrast in the look and feel of them. This was really hard wood and I have some more bits of it so watch this space

Liberty's says no

I have just heard that Liberty's have decided they don not wish to stock my work. Oh well c'est la vie. Looked promising for a while but never mind. We had a great weekend in London with my daughter and co so no harm done. At least I tried.

Well that's over. Had my assessment at Liberty's on Saturday up in London and it was hopeful. The lass who assessed me seemed impressed with my goblets and was asking about those and is going to talk to her manager in the buying department about them. Fingers crossed, they will decide to stock them and have some from me. Hope so.
