Managed to get some more Bethlehem Olivewood, I do enjoy turning this wood, it has a wonderful grain, here we have a mortar & pestle and a pill silverer which I have based on a 19th century antique one.

Thought I would see how small I could go and still keep the detail, well this is it, a dolls house communion set in 1/24th scale. The goblet measures just 5/16" tall. Had to make three lids for the flagon as I lost the first two, dropped them and never to be seen again!!

I love turning these, a mortar & pestle along with 2 quirky lopsided goblets, am busy making stock for my next fair but also love turning a few things for ebay, these three items are in the exotic wood cocobolo.
I use my own technique for turning things lopsided. Now listed on ebay item 120738941294

Had an idea last night and spent a couple of hours this morning turning and putting together.
This is a 'penastrole', it is a ring of the future for a wizard or experienced witch.
I have turned this in rosewood and cocobolo and different pieces of acrylic, it measures
1" diameter and 3/4" tall to the top of the astrolobe.

A day off work means a day in the workshop, gone a bit more normal this time, but soon back to my witchy things, this time though I have turned a dolls house communion set in olive wood, what a lovely wood to use, but very hard to get hold of, got a few pieces left though.
Just put this set on ebay.
