Now that the chill has gone a little from the workshop, I ventured back in for a little tidy up and ended up just turning.
Starting with rounding off and end sealing a piece of ornamental cherry, which will be beautiful. I just hope I can do it justice. I have heard a rumour that there may be more of this left in the pile, so I have requested more.
Mrs Turns has been asking for a pomander for a while and as I had no clue how to go about making a lidded a box and hanging it from its lid, I had to get a little creative and after hollowing and piercing the sphere, I drilled a central hole through it and the lid and turned a little bead from some left over tulip-wood, another new thing to try.
The end result you can see above. The reaction from the recipient was favourable, so I must have done something right…
