All in a days work


well managed to get some time in the cabin last thursday and knocked out a few pens and keyrings.
Having understood about the toxicity of some exotic wood and few native ones for that matter i still love turning them, however by Friday after turning a cocobola keyring my inner arm joints are itching like mad, as is my nose, ears chest and stomach, and my left eye is slightly swollen, i need to wear protection when turning this particular wood, lesson learnt.
However i managed a fairly good day on the whole and i would like to share some the pics with you if i may.

hope it wont be too long before the itching goes away and i can return to normal instead of looking like a demented idiot.
thank you..

you are very naughty, you should always wear a face mask and goggles. your health is far too important. The acrllic stuff is nasty too.

very good pieces steve.
