Total Retro Show – Westmorland Showground LA7 7NH

I’ll be there from bright and early on Sunday. Turnedoutnice.co.uk is delighted to sponsor the “Show ‘n’ Shine” competition. The trophy is made out of turned Lignum Vitae – the hardest and densest wood traded (legally) in the world. It’s what they used to make police truncheons out of and the piece here has fantastic colouration and was begging to have some antique oil shine. Atop is a Renault conrod.

I’ve got a rear brake disk from a BMW ’80’s motorbike – now a wall clock. The wood is fixed to the disk using two sixpenny piece washers, re-cycle, re-use!
