    Lockdown project....,.,

    Never made one before but up until now seems to be going ok. Hope it hollows out OK. I would be a little upset if I c..ck this one up.

    Had to go shopping this morning. The place looked absolutely dead. I am becoming used to being treated like a leper
    even had my temperature taken when entering......32.4

    We look forward to seeing that segmented beaut when it's all done and dusted. I had my temperature taken at Tesco the other day, I objected but still had to drop My trousers.
    Kind regards John.

    Managed to finish it today. I was bricking it parting it off.

    I use various woods including Maple, Oak and Walnut and the joints hold a Walnut veneer.

    I am going to keep this one as I quite like it. Not too bad for a first effort me thinks.

    WOW even with photos the right way up. I am really impressed (with the piece that is) looks good Frederick even to the dimple in the bottom, there's a test of how thin you went!!

    I had some of the veneer left over from the leaves you sent me some time ago. I used that in the joints.

    Frederick, you're getting good at this, and the photography as well. No negatives.
