The next lot were made in May 2006 using the Delta Midi Lathe. the lace roller is done in Indonesian wood called Merbau. It has a lovely yellow fleck in it. see here and here for enlarged versions.
The two weed pots were my attempts to get better at turning small things, the top one is a stick of African Mahogany and the base one is from a Mango tree. see enlarged version here
On MY Jet Mini Lathe I have just begun making bobbins for wire lace . That is lace that is made using fine guage wire instead of thread. Check it out when you enlarge the photo to see the bobbins. The green thing is a necklace pendant using 28 guage wire from a craft shop!
and here is the dimensions I used to make these bobbins.
