I somehow stumbled across this interesting article.Woodturnings By The Masters For Sake Of ComparisonIt certainly made me feel better as I’m always my own worst critic.I hope you enjoy this perspective as well. Which reminds me of the first coin holder I ever sold.I considered it my worst piece, it was some junky dunnage I’d thrown together on an experimental whim.There was even obvious glue smear available.It sold within a couple of hours.Go figure.

I was vacationing in Florida this summer and had my first experience with a Hookah in Ybor City, Tampa. I loved it. Brother-in-law said I should make one since I am a woodworker/carver. Does anybody have a good design out there? One that uses glass/ceramics for the water? I like the idea of four hoses for parties. And yes I am using it for tobacco. I only smoke once in awhile and usually it is a cigar or pipe. The coolness (literally) of a hookah was amazing. I am not used to buying stuff to ...

I woke up this morning and when I let my shop buddy out for her morning search for ‘that perfect spot’ to take care of her doggie business and I found a huge limb broken out of the big maple tree near my front walk.

This maple tree was planted when my 2 story ...
