Thanks for the comments chaps. When I started turning I said wood had to be wood but a year or so on my view point has changed somewhat and sometimes adding a bit of something or the other adds to the work. 🙂
Couldn’t agree more Ed. Experimentation is part of the fun. The classic forms and finishes will always have their place, but I think for woodturning to have a future on a good level it needs to be pushed, the same for everything really.
