A beautiful sunny day albeit below zero. At least it isn't raining and we don't have snow here ...yet. A new commission in, fairly simple so shouldn't take too long. 32 candle style light holders to go on a chandelier for a church. Nothing like a bit of variety. One thing about doing woodturning professorially and full-time is that you never know what you are going to be asked to make. Over the last couple of years I have had quite an odd assortment.
This was something that seemed simple but had to be made very specifically to the customers specs. It is a handle for a martial arts sword. Must have got it right as he came back for another one later in a different wood.

This was one of two large goblets (both now sold) that i made before Christmas. They each held a litre of whatever took your fancy. The bottle shows the size of them. 

Right....back to the dust and shavings factory LOL.
