  1. That was another great job and now I can see the grian from the outside of the log to the center and it is really beautiful job Andy.

  2. Hi Andy. The laburnum has a very pretty grain to it. And it looked like it required a strong but steady hand to carve it. It’s beautiful.

  3. A beautiful piece, both from the design point of view and its natural beauty. Love the contrasting bow ties. A clever way to fix the problem whilst looking like they were part of the design before you even knew about the cracks.

    Talking about design, do you sketch out (or design “architecturally” to the mm) before you start the process, or do you think “vase!” or whatever it is you come up with, and then let the wood guide you to the actual end shape? Obviously some like the 3D chess board & set would require a lot of planning, but it’s more this sort of work that I’m thinking about. You do it so naturally that it seems like you’re doing one extreme or the other when it comes to the design.

    However you do it, you never fail to amaze me with your skill and artistic eye. Bravo, squire, you did it again!

    1. Thankyou .. I decided beforehand to make a hollow form but I never decide on a shape until I’m turning

  11. Beautiful piece as always.Laburnum has to be one of my favorite woods to turn not had a decent chunk like that sadly only small pieces

    1. Thanks .. Yes its a cool wood I got quite a few pieces from this batch of Laburnum unfortunately I think this is the last piece

  12. Always a pleasure to watch your turning Andy. And Laburnum is such beautiful wood. Well done again Andy

  13. Beautiful wood, beautiful finished piece, Andy. I thought I saw a flash of chatoyance when you were showing it on the lathe. Just curious, could you see the bowties on the inside when you checked it?

  14. That is beautiful Andy and you did an amazing job turning it also!!!
    Enjoyed your video and I gave it a Thumbs Up

  15. Laburnum aka Golden Chain. We had a huge one when I was growing up. It was gorgeous in full bloom. I didn’t know the grain would be gorgeous as well. Good job!
