Thanks Dawsons! :) Especially Beth, Maker of Lovely Things.

Viv - not quite. This was just practice - I need to level up my woodworking skill a bit. Those little bits of wood are for something far more exciting, which will be revealed in due course.

I'd like to make some stuff with this nice wood we should collaborate some time.

This is so tactile looking and perfect for a light pull, I like the extravagance of it too.

Hmmmmm, I think the Dawsons are subconsciously wood-fetishistic.

Beth, Laurence was telling me that he had been setting bits of wood in jewellery. Pendants I think.

It is absolutely lovely to hold, if I do say so myself. I went all the way down to the 1200 grit paper and then worked in a crapload of beeswax. It's a joy to turn the lights on or off.

(I'm kind of glad that Steve doesn't make it over this way these days, he'd be having a field day right now.)

Commissions are available. Although given how long this took, not sure if I can make it worth my time without charging quite crazy amounts of money... :)

I can almost feel the velvetty texture of the wood.
