They are all very beautiful. What do you use the first one with the knob for? Never seen one like that?

Thanks for the comments. Vicki there was rot in the wood and instead of wasting I just kept hollowing and this was the result. Maybe use it on the desk as a pen/pencil holder. Hi Branch, glad you enjoyed our country, yes the natives are a friendly lot. Your daughter and hubby should enjoy Melbourne, we live 100 miles to the North

G’day Darryl, The hole was some wood rot that gave in while hollowing, I just cleaned it up and used that as the opening instead of at the top. What can it be used for, not sure but have pens/pencils in it at the moment. Just a lot of fun.

Hi Allison, you should give it a try but yes it is very addictive. I have just tried turning with ply wood and that really hits the spot. Thanks for the coments.
