      ]Hello!
      My name is Dave and live in north-east Pennsylvania.
      I have always had an interest in bells, and have a small collection myself….mostly packed away in boxes due to lack of display space.
      However, I also make bells from wood, turned on a mini-lathe.
      I hope to meet lots of new people here, and share with many my interest in bells.
      I have posted a picture for you to see what I make. Hope you enjoy.

      Hi Dave,

      Your bells are nice and neat.

      I cannot make bells, I collect them. And wooden bells are among my interests. I have many of them in my collection. I live in Russia. Here making things of wood has been very common for centuries.

      People not just make wooden items but carve them as well. Quite often wooden things (including bells) are lacquered.

      Consequently many different types of wooden lacquered miniature exist.

      These are two of my favorite wooden lady bells, not lacquered.

      I wrote about them here: http://www.forumbells.ru/forum84/topic1244.html

      They are the examples of so called Gorodetskaya painting. Using the same link you can see some of my other wooden bells and types of painting: Permogorskaya, Khokhloma, Sergiev Posad style of poking and painting.

      Also here is my photo album showing carved platbands of doors and windows in Russian houses: https://fotki.yandex.ru/users/larfra/album/368332/
