The World Keeps on Spinning
Last week I mentioned that April is National Woodworking Month. To celebrate the month, I asked you to email photos of your latest projects — and a bunch of you did! We’ll put them on a webpage at the end of the month, and one contributor will win a woodworking tool.
To encourage you in this effort, here’s a photo of some bowls I turned recently.
It was last winter, and I had just gotten my shop heater really going. The pandemic was really going too, so I was really going nowhere. That weekend I used some birch from a log I had cut down at my cabin, as well as some spalted birch I had in the shop already, and I had a personal turn-a-thon. It was a lovely day spent at the lathe. My dog Leeroy supervised from a camping chair and I counted it a success. Keep those projects coming in!
