My mother always told me that I would get in trouble if I did not behave, and she was right. I set here in the
office with a beautiful snowfall outside that I should be crosscountry skiing on, but I had to clear the concrete
apron in front of the shop this morning and then plow the 600 yards or so of the driveway, and since I had
the plow out, I had to help the lady across the road clear her driveway and parking area. It was foggy and
damp, so it took awhile. While waiting for the shop to warm up I glued up some more blanks to make the
bowls I had promised my kids. I want to go skiing, the shop is warm and there are 4 bowl blanks I want to
finish turning. There is too much fun and I just do not have enough time for all of it. Joseph, the father of Jesus, was a carpenter and so it makes sense that Jesus was also a carpenter.
Being who he was he must have been a master carpenter so I wish all of you a very merry Birthday/Christmas
as we celebrate the birthday of a fellow carpenter who is just a little more than that. May this season be a
happy one for all of you and yours, and thank you for sharing this site with me.

Gus as the woodworker you are you most have tought about how you cuold be four places at the same time
but I think its impossiple
two places yes thats possiple have done it a few times my self but four nope
you have to follow the old words saying work before pleasure , so out with the plow , take a snowballfight with the kids (always funny) and when you are exhausted from that on with the ski and relax in the nature
the wood and lathe donĀ“t run away

merry Chrismas to you too

Hey Gus, like your name on here, I’ve seen the pine beetle wood here marketed as denim wood to those with more money than good sense. We have similar problems here in the south with damaged wood. But I still saw it.
