    A Wand called Fischa

    I thought I would have another go and cut the top off one of the Normann Fir non-needle drop Xmas tree. It is almost fully seasoned, quite wormy and was fairly straight so not as much off-centre cutting and it is more turned than I would have liked. I was making a very fine finial when it snapped just at the end of the finial you see. Fortunately the mandrel saver was just the right size to snug up so that I could finish.

    Don't look too close you will see the poor finishing. If you look at the handle in the first shot you will see the hole where I halved a woodworm that was cowering

    Absolutely fantastic Peter, As a kid I would have dreamt about one of these and I probably will tonight too. They are superb.
