Default Some Turnings with George's Blanks

I recently procured some of George's Bits of Timber, Truffle Wood Poly Resin blanks and tried my hand at something other than what I have been working with.
I'd love to say that they were easy, but there was loads of challenges and sharpening and I learnt a lot along the way.
The kits were JR Gents and I wish that I had used something a little more deserving of the blanks but that will be the next challenge.

I think they all look good, and especially like the truffle wood rb

Nothing wrong with a Jr. Gent kit, especially while wearing a purty blank!!! And the price was probably right on the kits too.(Just means more profit for you)

Well done!

Yes, those definitely put a smile in my face, nothing I appreciate more than seeing my blanks dressing a nice kit with a great fit and finish, such as these...!

You gone a excellent job, and made those blanks proud, I'm sure any difficulties you found will be overcome, very soon...!

If you need some more, you know where to find me, huh...!

Thank you for showing them, to us all...!

Great Work Brett,
Like your Fit and Finish.
The Truffles are Terrific.
Congratulations to you and George.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
