Welcome to From the Forum - Chosen by the MembersIn order to add an area of interest to the forums and to encourage interaction between the different forum sections, the forum members can post to our 'Members' Choice' thread to act as a showcase for a piece of work chosen by a member each week as their 'piece of the week'.This week's members' choice is ’Rose Root bowl’ by Neil Lawton. Picked by Nick Simpson, here’s what they had to say about the piece: “This small bowl delights me. Rose root can be fickle and risky to turn but Neil has created this piece exceptionally well. This post should make us all think outside of commercial blanks as a source of stock to turn, but bear in mind all the safety aspects. Especially PPE with face shield and liberal amounts of Cling film (Saran wrap) reinforced by tape. It is a particular pleasure to see Neil back and firing on all cylinders.”Congratulations again to Neil and we will bring you another chosen piece next week. In the meantime, you can find out more about the piece by clicking here.(PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY OF THE MAKER)
