As I’m getting more experienced on my lathe I’m speeding up considerably, the second shot shows a present that I’ve made for my daughter-in-law.

I really like seeing the multiple vases of tulips together. That really sets off the presentation! Very nice!

I’m surprised and grateful for all your complimentary remarks guys. As for the wood species, because of my declining memory and the fact that all my turning wood, and 98% of all other wood is gratefully received from friends, I only recognize the most common types. The outside two vases are West Australian Jarrah whilst the centre one is Jacaranda cut from a local tree. The Tulips are Jarrah, Pine, Sheoak and several types that I can’t remember!. Yes, the major shed cleanup has made a world of difference, I’m able to sweep/vacuum the floor after every project which is conducive to clear thinking for the next project. I’m giving Tulips a rest for a while whilst I concentrate on other projects.
