My husband, Rich, enjoys woodwork. He has a wood turning lathe, and wants to get down to some serious wood turning. A few weeks ago he went to a friends workshop and made a bowl on the wood lathe his friend has there. Very proudly he bought it home, and I was really impressed. "What a lovely smell." says I as he walks through the door with it, waving it in the air. Within five minutes I had to ask him to put it somewhere well away from my smelling senses as it started to make my eyes water like anything. He's made it out of eucalyptus wood, which smelt really strong, and sadly I have reactions against things strong smelling scents :-( The next bowl will have to be made from slight smelling wood stuff!!
