Just got back from Q-Turn 2017. Great weekend had by all with relatively warmer weather for this time of year. A few photos of the turners, the display table of finished work, including the mystery wood projects (everyone gets a piece of wood and must something from it - winner pocked by votes and wins bragging rights and a bag of lollies :U )

Here's what I turned. A large pepper grinder from some very old Red Mallee cast in bright green mica, a small pepper grinder from Ooline cast in swirling "autumn" coloured micas, both using epoxy resin. Finally my entry into the mystery wood comp, 6 mini goblets and a wine karaffe on a small table, all contained in a tube to ensure they are not lost or damaged. Five cent piece for scale

Nah just fluorescent, not luminescent, but certainly bright :2tsup:

Kept it mate to make IWCS samples out of :wink:. Mind you I did partly make over 20 goblets to get the 6, they are some where in the sawdust :rolleyes:

What was that timber again?

neil, the timber was tipuana, it comes from south america, is a weed, has yellow flowers and a winged seed.

Thanks Jim. I've found Tipuana tipu comes from South Africa and also known as Rosewood that explains why it turned so well.

Unfortunately I can't find the miniature work, must have fallen on the floor, so probably now amongst the shavings in the bin or on the ground some where around the shed :cry4:
