Nothing wrong with being in the groove, it just helps boost your production! I love it when I fall in the groove, everything seems to click and you’re in euphoria! I wish I could find some Avocado wood, too cold in northern Fla for them. Nice turnings.

Very nice job! Where would I go to get some of this wood for turning?

Avocado doesn’t really get that big… I get all of my Avocado from firewood dealers around the San Diego area. I can get a wheelbarrow full for about $10-$35 depending on the time of year.
