These pictures are in response to LG member `dbhost` who requested pics or samples of my work following viewing of my Workshop.
1& 2. Spherical lidded box produced from adjacent `off-cut` of Gleditsia. A native timber of USA growing prolifically, here in Australia to the extent of becoming classed as a `weed`. The off-cut heartwood had unusual colours of green, yellow, brown & black, and the spherical design was chosen to properly show off & enhance the colours and grain pattern.
3. Two lidded boxes. The L/H one is of Tasmanian Sassafras, the other is unknown but chosen for the grain pattern which resulted (intentionally) of a animal head appearing after turning, which resembles our Native Kangaroo. You might have to `blow it up` the see it.
4. A Flower Pot, or, Plant Pot Stand, produced from Australian Iron Bark. An extremely hard timber, difficult to turn. Formerly, and still is to some extent, used for rail-way ties or `sleepers`. The Stand design resembles a `Doric` Column, 180 m/m main body diameter x 700 m/m high.
5. A lathe steady I had to make to facilitate production of a Doric Column design of a Lamp-Holder, part of which can be seen in this picture, and the completed Item in picture #6.
I will follow-up with more later.
