    Hi this is the first time I have seen your show and a few things come to mind, you are very talented, you do try and have projects that do not require huge amounts of machinery, and the things you make are so good, so as a complete beginner who only took wood work in school and made very little can you please let me know what are the basic tools I need, I can not have a lathe I live in the UK in a flat and UK homes are very small compared to across the pond, I have little skill and due to disability limited motion and limited in what I can lift, I loved the dipping and thought of chop boards and the like, I noticed the bacon stayed good but will flowers also remain locked in time, anyway thank you for your wonderful show keep it up please. Deaghlan,

    This is some great design, have you ever considered actually selling these? or some of the other things you make?

    What about the clock mechanism?

    A wonderful idea came to me while you were pushing down the starburst….. that would make a cool vase/umbrella stand. It obviously needs more to it, perhaps a larger board and more splicing, and a base.
    Food for thought ;)

    you should make a small one then pour epoxy in between the cracks

    How do you tell time off a 19 point clock?

    Peter, now, I really want to do something like this. The only question I have is this: Had you made the cut stops at, say, 3/4", instead of 1/2", do you think it would have had less tenderness? Been less fragile at that point? Or, would the additional meat have made it less flexible, causing next-less-than-sturdy area in the wood to break? Watching as the pieces snapped off, I could feel the pain all the way over here, seven months later.

    Haha watching this stressed me out! Great project and video

    I think the dark wood and the black hands made it hard to see. Maybe if they were white, it would be easier…

    Wow!! Patience brings success, As my old art tutor told me, during my A level art. Many mini heart (art) attacks later saw many dicy projects successfully completed. That was a challenge, that I feel became a matter of pride. Lol fantastic piece to hand down.

    Gotta admit, I laughed pretty hard when the clock randomly snapped into tube form when you moved it.

    Such a situation would call for good planning and preparation. To help myself I would have applied the following procedure.
    Drill a hole ( holes in fact) through all the radial parts where the centre is going to be and thread a string through the holes to keep all the parts together. The end pairs at the circumference delicate joints should be wrapped with a thread to strengthen the joint while the work and shaping is being conducted. This will give enough security while the system is opened up. Secure the centre by putting in a centre piece and as one unwraps the shape use two nails on either side of each " ray" end in predrawn positions on the table so that they are secure . After all is done one can take of the construction aide structure/ wrappings .
