Well it is that time of year again and my daughter is back in the shop with me to turn Christmas gifts for her teachers and a few family members this year.
She has I think a total of 8 projects that she wants to make this year. We started on Friday making pens for her teacher and 1 of her Girl Scout leaders who teaches at the same school so they each get school color Lanyard pens.
I am so proud of the progress she has been making. I am still doing an initial start on the blank to knock the edges off, then she is turning it round and getting it very close to the bushings, I have been coming in to get it to the final spot, though I am thinking by the time we are done this year she will be taking it all the way down. We had a good discussion about the A,B,Cs of turning and she was repeating them each time she started the lathe.
We will finish the assembly of these two later this week when we work on some other projects. She has also asked to make an ornament for the ornament swap. So she and I will both be working on our ornaments. :) So more to come before the holidays.
