It all adds up!

Well, I am still behind on my 365 turnings - 38 done so far, out of 71 days. But, it is causing me to have a lot of fun!

I bought timber and accessories at the recent South of England Woodworking Show for these. It was interesting how much timber has risen in price too.

These 365 items are going to cost a lot of money over all. I must try and start using some "free wood" too. I tallied up the cost of the timber bought and used so far for this challenge, in these projects alone and it came to a total of £247. I am resolved this is going to be one expensive challenge. But, as I say, I am having fun.

Here are a few of the latest offerings.
