Some very nice work being displayed.

Pity you did not photo yours, as it also looks excellent. :eusa-clap:

It is all in the way you hold it and throw it to get it to turn and come back. :lol:

Lovely jubbly Dalboy! Very nice indeed 8-)

I embarrassed myself at a craft fair a few years back. I was demonstrating at this event and opposite me was a wood turner (like yourself) and he had loads on display. At the end of the day, I strolled over to his pitch for a gander and he asked me if there was anything which caught my eye. I said "Yes, the pair of jugs over there are lovely!" He looked round and his wife was stood in the area where I was pointing and she was a buxom lady. Within a split second, I thought "Oh no, what have I said." :eusa-doh: He looked at me with daggers and I laughed, realising what he was clearly thinking. But, it was too late, I couldn't say anything because it would have looked like I was digging a hole. But in truth, my brash statement was honest and there was a genuinely nice pair of jugs on a stand in front of his wife. I had to walk away and control my laugh. :lol:
