Two sets of wedding goblets to finish and get lacquered. Hopefully they will be OK.  Amazing how busy this last two months have been with demos, tuition and commissions. Not complaining mind. Usually the first three months are quiet but maybe my name is beginning to get out there.

Got the tapestry bobbins finished and away and arrived safely.Nice to have regular commissions like these even though copying isn't exactly mu favourit way of turning. Also got the platters done. Played a bit finishing off some hollow forms. Turned out sort of Chinese looking. Not intentional LOL. Pictures to follow.

Keeping a blog seems to be the in thing to do so here I go. Be interesting to see whether I can keep it going.

Today has been one of those days where things just don't want to go according to plan. I have two pairs of goblets to make and it just doesn't want to happen at the moment. When I get them done they will look something like these. Customer wants one pair on light wood and one in dark wood. Better luck tomorrow LOL.
