Well worth the effort, not least to see that even pros can make mistakes.
The first item to make was a honey dipper. Here's what a nice honey dipper looks like:
Mine didn't look like this.
Next, another egg cup. Can't have too many, I thought, especially with those chickens laying different sized eggs just to confuse matters. This is much improved on the previous model:
And last, a bowl. It was supposed to be a noodle bowl but a moments inattention with a long sharp turning chisel saw a big chunk of the top gauged out. The subsequent correction meant my bowl more resembled a platter. But it came out alright (thanks to the tutors and their steadier hands). Despite only being a crappy piece of macrocarpa (firewood) it is a nice piece of wood and turned well. All up a good result for the day.
