This was a challenge! Turning a punky, porous and rotten bowl from Plum wood I'd rough turned this Plum about a year ago and could wait to get one of the bowls finished so here it is, we get to do the first one together :) Remember this isn't a woodturning tutorial, loads of better wood turners on YouTube than me offering some great advice.

Woodturning a punky, porous spalted Beech bowl. Three days to complete this bowl, this wood was so porous but I loved watching the spalting jump out! Hope you enjoy and make it to the end and don't miss the stills of what has turned out to be one of my favourite bowls I've turned.

Turning a bowl and colouring using Hampshire Sheen Intrinsic Colours and the New Purple Electric Embellishing Wax Love using these colours so this little video will show you how I use them, my way might be different to how other people use them but it works for me!

The Tree of Life - Free Style This is an easy beginners project which just as long as you get the proportions just about right you can free style as much as you like! How many faces can you see in the tree??

Can I make something out of scrap 3x2 Pine firewood?? Well kind of, one of the most frustrating projects I've done! Sort of turned out ok in the end so stick with it until the end. Remember this isn't a tutorial, loads of better wood turners on YouTube than me offering some great advise.

Making a Magic (Well maybe) Wizards Wand! Great fun making this, lots of different techniques to be used. Tried to make it look quite old, worn and as if it was made from two different pieces of wood with the use of colours. Harry Potter anyone!
