A few recent articles
Here are a few pictures of the finished projects that have been published in GMC Publications Magazine "Woodturning". Currently I write an article for the magazine each month. The process is very rewarding as it keeps me to a deadline and gets me thinking in relation to how to explain the processes involved. This in turn helps me greatly with teaching and demonstrating.
The first is my take on a bamboo wall hung vase. Traditionally in the far east bamboo is used and simply cut. A hole drilled through the back and hung on a nail. Simple and beautiful especiall is a single rare orchid is grown and displayed in the glass receptical.
The second below is a simple open form finished with acrylic spray paint and gold leaf over textured panels.
