Hi guys just had a nice day in the workshop and got a nice load of work out the way and a bit of turning. So what we have is a chalice the wood is Acaccia base and top with a stem of Hormbeam, size is 7" high and the top rim is 4.5". Not to easy to get this thin, pic was taken on the stairs as light going and got lazy, will do prop pic latter for my site. LB.

"What is your name?"

"I'm Aurthur King of the Britons."

"WHAT is your quest?"

"To seek the Holy Grail."

"WHAT is the air-speed velocity of an un-laden swallow?"

"What do you mean, an african or european swallow?"

"Uh...I don't know that!!!"....AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA....

"How do you know so much about swallows?"

"You have to know these things if you're King."






:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: ...sorry.

I am your king.

Well I didn't vote for you.

You don't vote for kings.

Well how'd you become king then?

The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king.

Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

I'm sorry too LB :laughing:. I like your grail. Monty Python fans are just weird.

You're using coconuts!
What?
You've got two empty halves of coconut and you're bangin' 'em together.

So? We have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land, through the kingdom of Mercia, through...
Where'd you get the coconuts?
We found them.
Found them? In Mercia? The coconut's tropical!
What do you mean?
Well, this is a temperate zone
The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land?
Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
Not at all. They could be carried.
What? A swallow carrying a coconut?
It could grip it by the husk!
It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
Well, it doesn't matter. Will you go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here?
Listen. In order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right?
You lot are all Barking....LB
