This morning I visited Melvyn Firmager after an offer of some Elm burr's.
Unfortunately for Melvyn but lucky for me he has developed an allergy to Elm.
After some sorting out I came away with some of the most beautiful Elm I have ever seen .These pics show the burrs and a couple of bowls I turned from a piece this afternoon.
Some of the Burr's were dated 1984 so the have been stored for olmost 30 years.
For those of you that do not know Melvyn he is a world famous and accomplished woodturner who has a fantastic workshop and Bed and breakfast cottage Link here.
Thank you Melvyn it was great to spend time with you and your lovely wife Anne.
