    Commission for a present to H.M. The Queen

    This is a 6 inch optical crystal book which I was commissioned to do for a customer who has presented this to H.M. The Queen to mark the 60th anniversary of the Coronation, all engraving is carried out freehand using a dental drill. The Queen has been presented with a number of my engravings over the last 30 years.




    This is the spine of the crystal book

    Brilliant David. I am curious to know whether she has ever asked after you when presented with your work.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
