Fantastic tutorial Harry. Thanks for taking the time to create the document to show us how to do this. I have it on my to do list. I will let you know when I post them. They look wonderful. I like the vase that you put them in. Later.

Thanks guys for your nice comments.
Stephen, good to hear from you, the Sheoak Tulip is made from a piece of the beautiful boards that you gave me. Now that my turning “skills” have improved a little I hope to soon have more of your gift in the new lathe which is performing well. I’m in the process of modifying the indexing system that I made, the old lathe head-stock is 30mm whilst the new one is 1”.
