So what to give as a gift when you become a Godfather? Well I thought Otto might like a Yo-Yo to play with when he is a bit older ( he is only a year old ) so I thought I would make him one out of Cherry! Below is how I did it.

I started by rounding a square block on the lathe

From the initial piece I cut it into two. I only needed one of these pieces so one became a spare.
I then mounted one of the pieces back onto the lathe. Form this I was be able to get the two halves I needed

A few minutes of wood turning and polishing later and I had one of the halves ready to cut off the end of the block

 I then duplicated the other half

 Blue string, for a boy!
 My trademark box
and a little extra detail added for good measure.

So after many months of gradually making them, my first jewellery collection of bangles and rings were delivered last night to Darkroom. More pictures to follow when they are priced and in store.

To see them go and visit Darkroom on Lambs Conduit St.
