Well it seems that lots of us are getting a chance to get some things made, the lack of Summer weather is helping to keep us in the workshop !! We have projects being completed, started and  things breaking apart whilst on the lathe. We also had a look at a problem caused by a turned item being stored in a modern burial barrow - not a problem many of us have on a regular basis!! Read on for more...
