Sweet turning
« on: April 05, 2010, 02:57:42 PM »

hi chris hi everybody !

after the long easter w-end , i'm back in town
and just read the post about the punk series : thanx in advance, chris,
I will give this little beast a treat !

no more photos since I lost my camera at the boat gig a month ago
but i've been quite productive : a series of top keychains, a dozen new tops with various essences and some chocolate tops : turned on the lathe, with a wood center... chocolate shavings all around, a lot of fun, i plan to do it again as a "performance", with kids ready to swallow the clippings as they come:::: ;D

a friend has given me a small piece of ebony he had taken back from a trip in senegal.... it's sooo hard !!
i'll send you a piece to make some tips : i'm sure it can withstand any crash as long as it's not concrete

keep it turning !
