Beautiful job on those wheels Richard
The spinning jaws of the three jaw chuck hurt your knuckles when you get too close - ask me how I know .
Joel & Ernest -
Thank you for the compliments gentlemen !
The Bamboo tree looks great. Just one question, will those needles dry out over time and fall off, or will the glue keep them in place?
I also wondered whether the last photo shows a strap, but the reason I included it is that I'm sure I spotted a photo during my original search of a barrel on the ground with a painted ring at each end in a similar position. Typically, though, I couldn't find the photo again when I did the scans this morning!
In the first photo, I'm not sure if it's another drum in the background or a stack of boxes - I can see it either way, depending on how I look at it.
All the best
Joel & Terri - Thanks for the compliments, moving forward inch by inch .
Cheers - Richard
