      Thats so pretty Samigale. Its so surprising what a little imagination can come up with.

      Nice buttons Pat. Lovely finish on them too. I can't imaging how you would do them on a great big lathe. Very fiddly I bet.

        The smallest buttons I make are about 60mm across the picture shows a button tray at 300mm (12") and coasters at 104mm (4") so not too fiddly but would be if I tried to do small ones!

            Thank you

            I have a few more ideas with the buttons however I still want to keep in the wood aspects too whether it be by personalising by pyrography or by painting the wood combined with the buttons. Using wood for my business is how I started so it's lovely to keep it in even though trying something new

              I love the button cards.

              The tray and coasters are lovely too. I want to stroke them!

                    These are lovely.
                    My love of making things started when I used to stay at my grandmothers and used to play with the buttons in her button tin.
                    That shows how old I am when people used to cut the buttons of everything before they threw it away.

                      I have a tin of buttons just collected from old blouses, caridgans etc and ones that people have given to me - I love buttons - they always seem to have that homely cottagey feel to them when you see them displayed like this. My grand daughters love playing with them too.

                        Do you buy buttons especially for your projects or do you use left over ones from dress making?
