Michael Brolly - A different part of the spectrum *LINK*

>J. Paul Fennel's work takes turning aesthetics to a pinnacle. Michael Brolly explores a different part of the turning spectrum - whimsy. To make the components takes a great deal of woodworking skill. To combine them so perfectly ( bicycle quick releases, hinges, moving parts etc.) takes both skill and imagination. To come up with these whimsical and sometimes disturbing ideas - well that's the astounding part.

Scroll down the the word "available" and check out the seven objects next to the ball with the wings and goggles. And then read the accompanying text. A wonderful example of getting an idea and running with it - really really far.

Turning seems to be the limitless branch of woodworking - and turners are pushing the boundaries further and further each day.
