Virtual woodworking

So no guesses on the mystery turned item then? You rotten lot... In that case, I sharn't say.

Instead we have a bit of a SketchUp-themed blog entry again. Due to a total failure to remember to pack the disc, I was unable to take up Nick's offer to walk me through rounding the saw handle. Although I really doubt I'd have remembered one jot of it if he had... Anyway, for the amusement of the masses, here's the file (93Kb). And I thought, while I'm at it, might as well stick the Newlyn Toolchest file up here too (130Kb). I should warn all eager SU users that I'm the SU equivalent of someone who uses a blunt jack plane to occasionally trim a door is to a rabid neanderthal, so try not to wince too much. As long as I end up with something functional enough to get a few dimensions on then it's fine. Perfection is neither required, nor likely!

See? I'm not always super critical of my own efforts...

    Rotten I am--to the core. But still haven't a clue. Whatever it is, it looks like it would have been harder than heck to turn.

    Take care, Mike

  2. Well I'd have thought it was perfectly obvious ;-D

  3. Well, the thing on the right looks like a wooden version of a brass screw cup - as for the rest, I haven't a clue. Come on Alf, don't be such a tease, tell us what it/they is/are.
