I have been busy lately drawing up plans for a toy pick up truck, So decided to take a break from them as I was going cross eyed and make a few things so that I can do some craft fairs.

So this is what I have been up to the last two days. I managed to make six things but only 5 here the sixth is still in the work in progress stage as that is for a friendly competition on another forum I visit.

A small beech bowl

A walnut bowl which was a little soft after soaking with sander sealer and letting dry it turned OK

A pot porri the second picture without the lid again in beech.

And also a small dish which was turned wet and has warped which quite appeals to me or should I say like me warped. Not sure of the wood for this

The last is a small hollow form which I am not sure if I should make a lid and finial may do it tomorrow and see.
