AS the title says I am a bit pissed off. I am a wood turner now, that is how I earn my living such as it is. Just before Christmas I had a job come in for January along with drawings. He wanted me to make an urn in wood that could be used to make a mould to cast two urns in bronze. So I did my own drawing, taking all of the measurements from his drawing and constructed a segmented piece for stability that came apart in the right places to make it easier for casting. On completion he asked me to post a picture wich I did, he says he does not like as he thought it would look like a picture he then sends me,the picture is nothing like the drawing. I say I will alter the piece as customer satisfaction is important to me but would like him to pay for the work done so far and I have not heard another word from him. I am now £450 out of pocket with an urn that will be difficult to sell. Don't you just feel that sometimes life would be easier if all you did was stack shelves in Tesco's?

Find out the name of his local paper and write a letter naming and shaming. Satisfaction if nothing else. The other Rock alternative is to follow him to the pub one evening then............*******

Bill I quite fancied the second alternative that you suggested but unfortunately I did not follow my own protocols. It was a job that came in through the internet and I usually get all the details and a deposit but because I have had this cough and cold I have not been firing on all cylinders and did not get them. So I have no idea where this bloke is, the more I think about it the more I think I may have been the victim of a hoax. My wife points out that these days I am in no condition to meet people to teach them manners and I expect she is right. What I am going to do is alert all of my woodturning friends and warn them off, that way if he is genuine he may find it difficult finding another turner to make it for him.
