Having continued to enjoy others picture postings, thought is was over due that I add some of my own + new camera...
Smallish Brown Oak burr HF
Oak HF 'Pebble', Bleached (didn't look good - aged yellow) burned, brushed, 'ebonised' and lime waxed (@ Tony and Di's, initially intended to try the silver gilt...)
Spalted Birch HF
Large Walnut HF - crotch ripple (posted before, but now polished up a bit), new camera showing the amazing chatoyance  (hopefully)

Tom,

A choice of 4 great forms, don't make life easy for us will you!

okay, for me it has to be the Oak pebble, it's gone through so many processes to become what it is. It looks like something that I'd keep on my desk and pick-up and run my hands around while thinking, feeling the texture under my fingertips.

p.s. you can start a new thread for each posting if you want to.

 Know we have said it before Tom........ Think you need to open   a new thread.... there`s no extra charge  ;D ;D ;D.
 Having seen the Walnut one in the flesh, I think the forum members would like to see a photo of it from above showing
 the crotch. Could we also have some sizes knowing how big that Walnut one is

Hello again Tom (you kindly gave me some sound advice about turning green wood about 18 months ago, when I first started turning, on an arb forum).

Great to see some more of your work on here - some great forms.

I think my favourite's must be the brown oak burr h/f for its shape and the walnut h/f for the beauty of that wood (but its a bit difficult to see the whole shape from that photo)

Many thanks again for your previous help and advice

Kind regards

David

Why don't you start anew thread when you have new work to show I really cant be bothered looking through this thread it is confusing.

George this is a thread of work that I've made, I don't often post, hence why there is only 3 pages. This is a small forum, but actually this is quite common practice for a person to have a thread that they keep adding to over time. It is easier to search for, and make external links to, a single place. This helps the forum, users and people searching for them and their work. But like many things it is also personal preference, to which we are all entitled. If you are finding this confusing, in future when you see a multi page thread with a new posting, simply click the last page to see the most recent postings, again this is pretty typical forum behavior.
