International Pepper Mill

International Pepper Mill

I call this an international pepper mill as it is made from 5 species of wood, each from a different country - Yellow Wood (South Africa), Teak(Zimbabwe), Jatoba (Brazil) Australian Blackwood (Australia) and Poplar (Canada)

My version of a Stick Vase

Jim Lorriman demonstrated his technique for making his stick bowls and vases at one of the guild meetings. I was quite inspired by the items he produced and attempted one myself. It certainly was not as easy as Jim made it look. I was however quite taken with the outcome, particularly the faces that showed up as the turning developed.

Mix and Match Bud Vases

Surfing the net for inspiration I came across Derek Andrew's Triplet Series and I was intrigued by the "how did he do that" aspect and decided to do a bit of experimenting myself. This was the result

My Largest Turning

My Largest Turning

After completing a hardwood flooring project which involved a curved staircase I had a large quantity of offcuts. I decided to use these to produce a segmented vase. At 17in tall and 10in at the maximum diameter this is the largest turning I have done and really tested my trusty old Record No3 lathe.

Fruit Cherry Bowl

When I had to take down a diseased fruit cherry tree in my garden I salvaged as much of the wood as I could. This bowl came out of a triple crotch section of the tree. The one area was full of bark inclusions, resinous gum and voids but adds a natural "design feature". The bowl is one of those you either love it or hate it things.
