As there have been no replies to Ivan's challenge I have decided that it is time to call a halt and thank all of you for taking part.
I started the challenge with one of my turnings so I asked Ivan to send his piece on to me.
Lucky me, A beautiful little hollow vase made from spalted beech, 5" tall and what a splendid piece of wood ,gorgeous grain structure and a superb finish .
Very well done Ivan and I am so very pleased with it. One to treasure.Many thanks.

Pass the Parcel is Back for those in New Zealand & Australia.
after a recent visit by John Hodgson to NZ he has sent me the parcel to see if there is an interest in the south as it didn't work for us before with time limits and postage. I have added this post to the original so you can see how it worked and the type of the challenge. Those that are interested it would be good to know ( just post I'm in or yes ) to give an idea I would suggest instead of it going back an forward across the Tasman sea we do some first ones here then Australia but it will be up to the those willing to take up the challenge to decide , Owing to the postal service being slow and distance we make the time limit 4weeks but nothing to stop it being reposted sooner . If you have friends that do not visit the forum on a regular basis let them know. I will post the first Password on the 3rd of May at about 8pm NZ time the first to pm me after that with the password and willing to take up the challenge will be sent the parcel with a turning. The one I received from John is the same as the one sent to Neil in the first post good luck we will see how it goes.

Ok so the pass the parcel only received only 1 reply in the south from Chris Smith in Perth Australia so we have decided we will exchange turnings ( have sent mine ) and I have returned the parcel to John Hodgson in Scotland along with a turning .
