My my you have had a busy day in the workshop Ron. A beautiful collection bracelets and pens. Sounds like it was more a therapeutic day in the shed to do something not quite as challenging as the usual projects you submit….
Well done…

Sorry Dave I did do a little more. I used vinegar and steel wool to stain an urn. Photos of that will follow. I also dyed 2 other pieces. The Gallery is calling for more pieces. Yes it was almost therapeutic day. Thank you to the rest of you for the comments.
