In the beautiful UK sunshine, I take a note from nature and demonstrate how I wood turn mushrooms on the lathe using basic tools in this weeks beginners project.
A great skill builder with a world of creative possibilities to consider, as well as some little challenges too. There’s nothing rotten about this fungus…I like to think I am a bit of a ‘fun-guy’. Lol.
