    Something non- wood related this time......though I did still use the lather to turn it.

    I picked up this short section of antler at the Sustainability Centre open day (nr West Meon) last weekend to experiment with turning.



    This is a screwdriver keyring which hides 4 different mini screwdriver bits. I was lucky the piece had a slight curve which meant I was able to keep some of the texture from the outside of the antler. I think it might be worth trying a few more if I can get some more antler pieces.

    This is lovely, I bought my other half an antler handle knife for his birthday in January, natural materials are so nice to own.

    SO, I've taken a break from drawing to to get involved in working with jewellery pieces, and I'm really enjoying it, I think I'm definitely going to continue with the jewellery work. Starting with copper because it's cheap, and giving silver filled a go next.

    Hopefully it will all actually sell!

    I build guitar FX pedals. I do everything from designing the colour scheme to building the PCB and soldering the circuit inside. This is one of a series of six all in different colours and sounding cool.

    So far this year I have been mostly building structures for the allotment out of salvage - strawberry planters and plant supports etc. But, once all my crops have been planted out, in one more week or so, I expect to turn my attention to indoors. I still have a backlog of odd jobs around the home to finish off (including the kitchen); but, they will likely be carried out with a lot of art and crafts in mind.

    I've obviously been thinking that there's not nearly enough colour in my van as there should be so I've been painting my kitchen cupboards. Had to work with limited colours and I will probably paint over it and do it all over again but here's how it's looking so far…

    Thank you. It's become a bit of a meditation for me. I'd forgotten how much I loved to paint as a child and it's all coming back to me now.
