  • A few Xmas turnings my wife made.

    So now that I can post links I just wanted to showcase a few turnings my wife (Donna) did recently.

          Thanks, Donna has only been turning for about 6 months and I think her quality of work is fantastic. I like the Zebrano one.

            Look pretty good to me too. There are some fantastic female turners around, most tend to go for the more delicate work like this. If she doesn't know of her point her in the direction Of Cindy Drozda, with the icicles under her belt she'll possibly like her work. Along similar lines though Cindy ahs been at it a bit longer than 6 months.

              I thought it was time I stopped being a lurker and signed up my own account seeing as my hubby is splashing pics of my turnings about! lol

              Thanks for the comments - it's great to get some feedback :-)

              Thanks for the link Pete. I've seen Cindy's turnings before - very pretty. Who really gets me excited though tbh is Stuart Mortimer - I totally love his work.

                Great work - and as I said previously the first one is my favorite :-)

                  Thanks Silverthistle! That one is my favourite too out of these - zebrano is one of my favourite woods once it's turned.
