Over the past two weeks I have been turning a block of seasoned oak, bought from the Turners’ Retreat in Doncaster. I divided it into three pieces and turned each into a drining vessel, or tumbler. I have pictured the two completed ones, with tow small bowls I made earlier. With hindsight I would not have chosen Oak for tumblers, because its grain is quite open, but as a wood it seems very hard.
The carnauba wax finished the tumbler off nicely. The next club meeting, tomorrow, will include a competition for drinking cups, so I might enter these!
