turning with reclaimed wood

we often get pieces of wood that have been used as bearers and then discarded in the mud on building sites.  Many of these are actually nice pieces of hardwood, but it needs skill, time and imagination to bring out the best in them.

 

Here’s some great photos Andrew sent us showing how he made a lovely little pot from our reclaimed wood…
