Been butchering wood for some time now and lately I have found that I enjoy it more than ever. I like to make things starting with a small idea and build as I go. Took up turning a couple years ago and enjoy the challenge of design with each piece of wood.
I also enjoy building all kinds of jigs that make things easier for me and it's great when I come up with ideas to improve the shop.
My main interest are building small items now, but still enjoy the big projects.

Hi Dave, I checked out your projects after seeing your comments on my bowl. Lots of beautiful projects there. I also liked your sharpening jig idea. I have some bits just like that one which I usually sharpen attached to it’s handle, but your idea gives much better control.
