Bobbin along

"Mary Rose" Bobbins 

So yesterday afternoon and this afternoon I did some turning. 
Yesterday I split out a couple of blanks which I turned today. I had intended to finish them in one go, but after feeling the moisture they contained (I was sprayed with warm wet shavings!) I decided that Windsor chair makers might be onto something and have left them to dry after turning the basic shape.

  It's possible that they may crack or warp, but the relatively small size of the pieces should reduce the chance of that.
