Great looking mills and a cool way to identify them. These guys must be related to yin and yang.

Over the top, Lew!

Your staging of the main picture is rather…alluring, you devil, you!!

Hope your summer is going well. Busy here, lots of shop activity.
Just back from La Conner where the weather is delightful this time of year. Not so good here in Anchorage.

Best to you and yours,


-- Jim, Anchorage Alaska

Jim- Thank You!

Arlin- Thanks!

Ken- Thank You!

Hoss- Thanks!

Bambi- Thanks!

Dave- Thank You! Took a while to figure out how to mark them.

Mark- Thanks! Yup, that’s them. I didn’t realize until I started turning the second one that they were “mirrors”. Happy accident as Bob Ross would say.

Tony- Thank You! First time I ever worked with antler. Turned out better than I had anticipated.

OldNovice- Thank You!

Eric- Thanks! I don’t know why but those names were first thing that popped into my weird brain.

Jacksdad- Thank You!

Jim- Thank You! Glad to hear you are finally getting back into the shop. Sounds like you are really getting into this retirement thing!! Maybe you and Shari need to consider La Connor full time!

Smitty- Thanks!

Charles- Thank You! Glued that blank up about 6 months ago. Just getting around to turning it.

Thanks for all of the views and making this a Daily Top 3. I really appreciate it!
