I have many of my favorite turnings in my livingroom & around my house. But this is the first time I have ever taken a picture of them all at once & together. Most are my negative space designs up where I could get light thru them, then some solid designs, and some regular vessel turnings. One of my very favorite is the spider in a web in the upper left window! I hope you enjoy them , I sure do! That’s one of the wonderful things about being a woodworker, is that you can surround yourself with what you make & delight in it daily.

Michelle, these would brighten even the darkest day. Seeing them has made mine. Second from left centre row is my favourite. That’s some talent you’ve got there.

They are all beautiful and I don’t blame you for liking the spider as it is unusual and I can’t figure how you did it! I like the spalted vase on the table, I have a weakness for spalted wood! You do nice work.

I can see why these are your favorites. I can’t really choose just one. Kind of like choosing a favorite child.

Michelle, I loved seeing many of thes as each was posted, but seeing them in a collection adds another dimension to your creations & the strenght of you work.
I wouldn’t like to pick one out as they are all unique. :: ))))

Michelle always look at your turnings (with envy sometimes) and am thrilled to see them as a group. Keep posting them!

I have seen much of you work being on various common forums. It is a site to see them all together. Makes for a one great looking display.

thanks ya’ll . For those of you who might have missed it: I did a tutorial on a 5 centered turning and on the spider turning on Sawmill Creek.(michelle Rich) Those 2 are the simplist of all the turnings shown & you could recreate them with my secrets I shared. Enjoy & have fun .

Great display of wonderful work, I am just getting to where I can produce work that I can proudly display,
so I know the talent and artistry that you are showing here did not just happen overnight. Thank you
for sharing your work and giving others the help they need to learn to do the same.

You took wood turning to an entirely different – higher – level, Michelle! They are fascinating to look at and try to figure out just how you did it! They are all wonderful! ! ! !

Making what we enjoy, shines through to others.
What a view. Something we don’t get to see every day. Very cool to see them together. Unique and beautiful. Great job…..............
