OK folks, haven’t posted for a while, mostly because I have been busy, busy, busy. There were pieces to make for various club competitions (and I am pleased to say I walked away with a number of wins, more about that in separate posts), I made some samples for a metal spinner (inserts for bottle stands), some mushrooms (for club sales) and some bottle stoppers (yet another club competition).

But I also spent a lot of time on a favourite piece, which will get its own post once it’s finished. It’s a kind of Chinese looking box. Actually the box itself is very small, only about 2″ across and maybe 2″ deep, but it’s got huge wings in a pentagon shape, and the lid has matching wings, also in pentagon shape. Watch this space…

And then, of course, I am going to be at the AWGB seminar this year, and I need something to show there. Let’s see: I’ll probably take the Rocky Mountain Nod, the chinese box, another blue box I made recently (and got very nice feedback on) and then I am working on something rather special (psst, it’s a secret, so you just have to wait for it to be finished).

Another reason I haven’t posted much lately is that my dear stepson Michael, who is a very good amateur photographer these days, has managed to take all of our camera lenses with him, leaving me with a camera body, a charger and a tripod, but no lens. As you can imagine, it’s a little difficult taking decent pictures with a smartphone, but at least now I have one of my lenses back, and this weekend I should be able to take some more pictures. Again, watch this space…
