Tell me more, what did you use for the glue up and how much trouble did the turning give you?

Well my friend very eye-catching.Well now don’t keep us all on tenderhooks howdya do it? HE HE ? Actually I have a friend used to live in Oban Argyll here in Scotland and she mande lovely brooches etc from a similar technique using heather stalks dyed and trimmed and cut down to be made to fit into slices off deer antlers, as said which were precutut into very thin strips,a little over double an American coin the whole process was fascinating and I always wanted to utilise the technique myself someday to date no joy though LOL .Oh well it was only about thirty eight years ago.
