The image shown was produced as one of my "doorstops" series. Over time, when enthusiasm has waned and inspiration was lacking I would create a "doorstop". Based on an indistinct or problematical piece of timber I would simply examine what could be produced by removing some wood from whichever face offered that possibility. On occasion the workpiece was disassembled prior to meaningful turning to provide a safe and secure means of mounting. The results were always different, never boring and occasionally well received. I will explore some of them with you in this Odds and Sods section.
