Well I have managed to get the first turning of 2015. OK not a fantastic artistic piece but for fun after the Christmas holiday just to get back into the swing of things.

I confess in as much that it was started some time ago and put on hold while I made Christmas presents and the like.

Turned from tulip wood and glued to give me the thickness of material needed. It has 4 separate pieces for the main part. I painted it with artist acrylic paints. The letters on the front are cut from 1/16” ply and when stuck on sanded to make them even thinner they stand 1/2” tall and a little fiddly to make.

It stand 8” tall and 3 1/2” at the widest point

For those that are not familiar with the item it is a money box in the form of a post box found here on the streets of Britain.

This looks fantastic! It has clean metal look. The colour is very authentic.
