Rushing home from work, rushing through dinner, rushing all the kids to my parents house, and my wife going to a friends house for a ladies night…..the stage was set….
I entered my shop about 8:00, knowing with a 4:00am wake uu that my time was limited. I started on the cherry I had started Friday, but it popped out of the 1/2 chuck that was holding it….guess that wont work after all. :-S. I took my little electric chainsaw and trimmed up a piece of the sassafras. The heartwood was rotting, so I decided to turn the whole log on edge. Im happy with the results. Not the best Ive ever done, but definite symbolic signifigance. This is the first bowl I have made since moving to my current house, first bowl since my son was born, first bowl since my big career change….I am BACK!!!!!
I did realize that I need to get my lighting up to snuff….and I need to retune alot of my old tools. I also need to work on the general organization of my turning area. I will be posting pics of the shop soon. This one piece should be the crack in the dyke wall. Hopefully the work will start pouring out as it once did!
