Tom and Adrian.

Today i had a visit fromTom the owner of Woodhaven the online woodworking forum Woodhaven and Adrian who I know from the woodworkers institute Woodworkers institute .
Tom had some tools and equipment he wanted to show me and Adrian wanted to make himself a wall plaque or two.
I took a few pics today and tom took quite a few he is going to do a bit of a write up to be included here soon.
The main thing is we had a very relaxed and enjoyable day.
Tom went away with a couple of segmented blanks for a project he is doing with Les Thorn so that will be something to look forward to .
Adrian went away with a set of three wall plaques that he is going to frame up and we will getting a pic of them when he has finished.
Both Tom and Adrian did some work on the Plaques and they turned out well.

Three pieces of Yellow pine one foot square each.

Adrian starting to add some turned rings with a spindle gauge.

Tom has a go.

After texturing and colouring with spirit stains and Acrylic paints this is the finisher set of three ready to be framed.
Adrian has now framed the three Plaques into one frame and painted it matt black.
A great success i think.
