First attempt at turning a table top.Used double sided tap to stick the blank to the the turning plate.
The table is hinged and was used as a place to put your candle before gas lighting became common place. Need to find some very fine grained mahogany for this piece, Cuban perhaps. But where to get such small blanks?
Use the preformed press to glue two marquetry pieces of mahogany together to achieve to curve. Sick a scaled drawing of the shape onto the part with double sided tape. Roughly machine around the profile and then finish with the fine file.
Finally decided on the way the bathroom should look.......no tiled walls. Still to be 'furnished, but getting there.
Couple of additions from recent DH fair visits. A Japaneses style working mantle clock and next to it, a silver goblet. The later from a Russian silversmith who's son was manning a stall for him at the Arnhem DH fair. Also a bowl of fruit on the table.
Adding to the Chinese style for the main reception room. Also a couple of pots for the Taiwan plants Alice and Mary-Ann gifted me.
