Nice turnings, very nice. I like the patterns in the turnings. Hope you have great success in this venture, and with results like these, you should.
Thanks for showing.

Well done mate – Glad to hear that it went well and you made so many sales especially as I know these are tougher times economically over there. Great to see that people will still spend what they have on good quality craftsmanship.

thanks for sharing your pieces & your experience. Glad you had fun. I see lots of segmentations there, and I love segmenting myself, but in my area segmentations don’t sell. ..Go get more wood, make more pieces & sell them all again!!

Maybe not just luck with so many beautiful turnings on offer. I’m glad for you. So many others have disappointing experiences with selling their work that it is always nice to hear a success story.
