    I can see why that's a favorite. Good looking piece.

    Hard to pick a favorite but this is one of mine. I called it Curses Foiled Again. It is of course a hand mirror.

    Turned box of figured maple with mosaic lid. I've done half a dozen or so pieces with this mosaic in them, and this one's my favorite. About eight inches diameter

    Mostly because I cast the blank myself. Hoping to have my first Segmented bowl knocked out by this weekend though. :) pen7.jpg

    The last one I turned is always my favorite, but if I had to choose just one, I think this would be it.

    I don't think I have ever had a favorite piece. Mostly because I can't wait to see what is in the next piece of wood...

    One of my favorites. Walnut split-bowl made in 2014. Textured with Gilders Paste.

    My favorite turned object isn't one of great beauty or skill, but of meaning. When my first son was born, my father surprised us with a cherry rattle, made from wood off the old family farm in Ferrum, VA.

    My dad wasn't really a turner, but he somehow managed to use a homemade-from-screwdriver captive ring tool, and presented my son with this.

    which still has teething marks on it from more than a quarter century ago ;-)

    Being a curler, I came up with this delivery aid. It combines the nostalgia of an old curling corn broom with a bit of modern technology (stainless steel sliders). I turned the broom handle from walnut and then had a broom maker apply the corn. The supporting structure is turned from apple. There’s a bit of precision drilling and fitting required so the sliders are all level and in the same plane. I’ve made several of these as they impart a degree of style to the game!

    This 6” hollow form was made from scraps when I decided to clean up my shop during our coverups quarantine. All materials came from local trees.

    @ mr. Weir: Sir, that is one stylish piece of sports equipment. You wouldn't by chance be the artisan behind the world famous Nimbus 2000?

    Haha. I’m a Harry Potter fan too! I also make shorter delivery aids without the corn broom part. 3CE6C946-E7CC-4906-8884-B4F3C7C8655E.jpeg
