Nice Dug, I always find photographing in woodland to be tricky with the contrasting light. :D

Nice pictures Dug! I might brave the weather and try to get a couple of pictures of the snow today.

Chilli, fantastic art. I've never heard of steampunk before, the dalek is very good. Could you do a steampunk Discworld?

The woodland pics are beautiful Dug, lovely colours.

It's making me think of ghostsecurity28. She used to post Steampuck stuff. I just tried to email her, but the address is no longer working. :cry:

How much does it cost you mean?? The dalek is on a 15cm x 15cm piece of wood, but the wood is very light and soft - almost like balsa - you can virtually press a finger nail in to it :shock: . It was difficult to burn any sort of detail on it. Because of the quality of the wood I would only sell it for about 7.50GBP (my pound sign just stopped working?? :roll: )

I've sold other pieces for 15 quid plus.

I've now got some better quality cheese beechwood boards to try burning on to. I reckon for burnings on those it would be 25-30 quid. I'm never gonna make a living at it for the time they take, but selling a few pays for my hobby.

My sister and her partner are trying to make a cottage business out of wooden stuff and so she puts some of my stuff up for sale when I've had the time to make stuff - but I haven't got the time to do it full time and I have a mortgage to pay!

If anyone wants to see more of sister's stuff look up 'I Wood Love That' - there's a website and a facebook page (sorry.....blatant advertising :roll: ;) :lol: )
