Today was the day that The Worshipful Company of Turners judged the entries for the 2010 Biennial Craft Competitions. This year they had introduced a new category - A Candlestick to be turned on the Pole Lathe - which I entered. I popped down to Apothecaries' Hall in The City of London having nothing better to do and was shocked, amazed and delighted to find that I had won 1st prize! specially as the runners up were Stuart King & Katie Abbott.
I turned my candlestick from a well seasoned piece of London Plane and the two parts fit together with a screw thread.
