First attempt at a porringer

Postby Sharif Adams » Thu May 26, 2011 11:12 am

I really enjoyed making this. First time I've used apple wood too; I found it was very nice to turn and carve. I've seen the lovely ones Robin Wood makes and was inspired to have a go myself. What I like so much about these is the contrast between the tool marks left from the hook tool and the tooled finish left by the knife when cleaning up between the handles. It would be great to see some pictures of porringers that others have made...

Lovely bowl. I like apple wood as well, wish I could always get more of it.
