    Default Books - turning, french polishing and watercolours

    Hi comrades,

    Three books.

    -- Watercolours, $5
    -- Raffan, Turned bowl design 1987, $5
    -- French Polishing and Varnishing 1959, $5

    The Raffan book is ex-library. All in good condition. The FP+V one is a great little book, an old fashioned one written by an expert who was passionate. Lots of hints.

    These don't really owe me anything. They were grabbed at the Lifeline bookfair. I'm only adding a price because I'm a cheap bastard, but if you can convince me of why I should give them to you without using the letter e in your request, they are yours! No short sentences! I want effort!

    The watercolour was grabbed as I thought to embellish bowls, table edges, box lids, etc with a little artistic flair. Unfortunately a book doesn't magically impart skill ... or talent!

    Just the cost of post/courier too... or pickup if you are in Canberra.

    Four e's. Oh my!

    Volvo, it is yours. Don't worry about payment of such a trivial sum. Just send me your address.
