Carving on turned work

I have often commented about the increasing number of turnings that have carved elements on them. This trend seems to be ever increasing. I tease turners by saying that turning is only a powered form of carving anyway so you may as well add more elements to the work. Some take up the challenge but whatever people choose to do, this trend of carving on turned work is ever increasing as is evident of the work seen at a recent event in Australia called Turnfest. This event certainly produced a visual feast of work to look at.

Let me know about the carvings you have been working on lately.

Have fun,

Mark
