Thanks for that, Burra!

One of my favourite parts of that BBC miniseries on Monastic farming life in Tudor England was where they looked at the wood-turning craft.

I kinda want to try it myself!

Pole lathe turning is great fun, and very satisfying. I've just started doing a little bit as part of a coppicing/green wood working course I'm on; I made a pin for my shave horse and a handle for a new spoon knife blade.

There's plenty of videos on YouTube and Vimeo should anyone want to check out more examples and practitioners.
 
Can you hear that? That's my theme music. I don't know where it comes from. Check under this tiny ad:
