Learning to turn and turning to learn.
My total involvement in woodworking growing up was cleaning us after my father made something, and putting stuff back where it belongs. That is why my shop is mostly composed by piles, but I know what is in every pile.
Use to ride Bicycles on Centuries 100 Miles at a time, but when I could not even keep up with my buddies girlfriends any more, I gave it up for a while. Of course the buddies and their girlfriends were both young enough to be my grandkids, still did not set with my ego. The wife also suggested that maybe it might be nice if I was home a little more not on the road for 20 to 30 hours a week.
I use to throw pottery, but got frustrated when taking the pot off the wheel was the first of many steps that HAD to be done. I like spinning stuff so the lathe was a great replacement, now when I take something off the machine is can be finished if I want to say so.
One of these days I will get a box with a lid that fits right, this is my current goal.
-- Trying to find an answer to my son’s question: “…and forming organic cellulose by spinning it on its axis is interesting, why?”
