    Ok so where is it??

    Here is my version....

    Egg cup:
    Wood: Melia Azedarach, white cedar.
    Sanded to #400 then finished with Shellawax Cream.
    44mm
    45mm

    See it even holds and egg, but SWMBO said I canít use a real egg so I had to make a wooden one. I had almost finished turning the egg and the force field holding it between the drive and live centres collapsed so the tip of the egg is a bit pointy. (Someone said it had to be supported physically by the two centres, think I missed something there.)
    Egg:
    Wood: Callistemon, Bottlebrush
    Sanded to #400 then finished with Shellawax Cream.
    50mm
    Diam: 40mm


    Ok just kidding...

    No, spike for "tribal" wood earring. You can see dozens of them if you google "wooden earrings". I am reliably informed that in Europe you can find them at every street corner (cynical me thinks with other commodities... ) I found the hard way that power machines do not necessarily make the job easier or faster. The spike is fun (whatever tool you like using ) but to turn, drill and cut the earring without it shattering is quite an interesting exercise of applied physics. I got it at the 6th attempt, my unreserved admiration if you can do better.

    To vote, use the post number in the top right hand corner. You have multiple choice available to you and all votes are private.

    This was the hardest as there are some things here that do not fit in the other categories but are excellent pieces of work.
