Large Irish oak crotch was gonna split it and knock 2 bowls out of it but decided against it and went for just 1 large 1 instead. I battled with this for 4 hours and got it shaped outside and half of the inside it was as hard as f**k.😤and could only get 2 passes and sharpen the chisels again. 🤯😟😟 top speed of 250rpm. #nature#ireland buy Irish gouge.
Just scored this gorgeous elm tree yesterday evening a mate of mine came with it he taught it was mountain ash but the smell of it tells me it's elm I think... No matter what it is it's stunning. 🤗. #native Irish elm #wood buy Irish

Natural edge ash crotch bowl this is finished turned and I've sanded it up to 800grit and put a coat of oil on it .now I'll let it dry and warp then I'll resand it and finish it but for now that's it. Pretty stunning piece. #native Irish ash #nature beach
Two lamps finished a while ago one is ash and the other is beach so today I decided I'd make a lamp shade for them out of Sycamore all I've to do now is come up with a system to hold them on the lamps. 🤔🤔. Time to put the thinking cap on. 🎩..... #buy Irish #woodturning beach beach

I forgot to take photos of the bowls there bagged and put away now. 🙄🙄... the other bowl is spalted ash from the same tree as the video lovely character and figure with a small bit of burl on the side which is a bonus...😃 # # buy Irish beach beach punkywood.

A lovely piece of spalted native Irish ash fairly punky in areas to but the figure and wavy grain in it is gorgeous not sure if the video picks it up. There was wood worm and bugs in it so I'll stick it in the freezer for a month or so. #spalted ash #wood Irish
Another spalted beech bowl with serious character to it. I'm only turning about 15 months and I love it for me it has to be all the different types of hardwood I get to turn and all its different characters a win win all round. To everyone who has started to follow me thank you for all you're support and comments. Happy Xmas to you all.✌🤜😀. #spalted buy Irish #woodturning beach buy Irish
