There is a limit to how many photos of turning items on my pole lathe I can post and I try to stop well before I reach saturation point. But sometimes I do end up agreeing to turn some strange items, and to be honest, the chance to try different things is something I find really motivating so it’s not hard to talk me into it – as was the case when I was asked to make some knitting needles recently.
These are not any old knitting needles mind you, they are extreme knitting needles – just what they will be knitting I’m not quite sure but I think it will be large. These needles are over 12 inches long and one inch in diameter. It was great fun and I think they turned out well.
In a similar vein of experimentation Dave and Julian came around and we spent an evening in the chaos that is my open fronted shed spooning. We had a good evening trying out lots of home made things, including spoons, spatulas, the cider and beer which may, or may not, go well with the making of spoons.
I did tell you it was chaos in the Shed! But at the end of the day with more shavings on the floor and more firewood rescued and turned into useful items, what more could you want? Show us your spoons lads!
