I am sure some readers already have a copy of my book “the Wooden Bowl” but if you haven’t (or if you want one to give to someone else) post in the comments box below and I’ll draw a name from a hat to get a free book. This can go anywhere in the world.
It is a nice coffee table book with lots of photos of old wooden bowls from archaeological sites tracing the history of the craft from the early iron age through Viking times, Medieval, Tudor and up to the last pole lathe bowlturners of the early 20th century.
And a rather nice and very rare find from Coppergate York. This bowl was discarded before being finished and still has the centre mark and stub on the base where it was attached to the lathe.
I’ll draw a name or post number from a random number selector on 7th December which should give the book plenty of time to reach the winner for Christmas. If you are posting a comment why not also sign up as a follower if you haven’t already, it is always nice for me to know who is reading the blog.
If you don’t win the free book you can buy them here http://www.robin-wood.co.uk/book.htm
