I've been busy over the last couple of days. Doing a fair amount of turning but I haven't been keeping up with my posts. I'm trying a couple new things on some pendants, including some that aren't turned at all. I also got a couple of Paua shells to use as inlays.
I also worked on a lidded box made from some Olive wood I've had for a long time. It's one of my favorite styles, multi axis with a twist.
The downside to this style is that they aren't lightweight because of the thick sidewalls. I could have made it a little thinner but because of the overall shape it will always have a fair amount of heft.
