Tea Pot

This Tea Pot is quite a large one. I made this one for my mum 5 years ago and forgot at the time to take pictures of it. My mum collects china tea pots and i am happy to say she has this displayed along with her china ones. It really does have tea bags in it. and the lid is hinged.

I am Back!

I am Back from my holiday in England. I had a most wonderful time and will be posting some pictures and memories of my time there. First though i am posting pictures of some of the things i had made in the time past.
This is the chess set i made for my sister Helen for their wedding 5 years ago. The box is plywood covered in fabric and the figures are weighted down with plastic pellets.
The box up turned is then the board.
I based the faces on playing cards.
This is the box closed. The board then becomes the top and the bottom of the box. It has a brass closure.
