Small turnings…

A finely turned piece in Tiger Myrtle by Roy Ellery, with the tools he made to turn the item. The 50 cent piece is for scale.

At a recent session at the CVWA’s Ulmarra workshop, Roy Ellery produced this fine small box with lid during morning tea discussion. The piece is made from tiger myrtle, with a finely turned finial. The finial is so fine that the tip broke when Roy was painting it!

Roy often makes his own turning tools -these miniature scrapers were made from old Allen keys – a good choice because of the quality of steel used.

The moral of the story – don’t waste the finest off cuts of beautiful timbers!

Showing the tools Roy made…
