    Default somethng for the spindle tragics

    Scroll down to see how its made, obviously they have never heard of hourly rates

    Each piece is individually turned and fitted together if I understand it correctly

    What they said.

    And to quote (or paraphrase) Richard Raffan, "The first 2000 are the hardest."

    Interesting reading Hughie, especially in light of current events .
    Texas turner S. Gary Robert's book, Masterful Woodturning describes and illustrates a music box project that incorporates mashrabeya.
    In a sidebar he mentions that mashrabeya was used to enclose
    unglazed earthenware water bottles placed in windows to cool the air that ventilates houses in the hot desert climate of Egypt.
    A well made piece of grillwork might have as many as 2000 pieces in it . If one enjoys complexity this might be just the thing.
    Link to a review of the book is below

    dunno if I have the patience for that. But the book looks interesting.
