Here’s a small collection of the Christmas presents we gave out to family. The bottle stoppers are tons of fun to make and fast, easy projects. Can turn these out in 10 to 15 minutes. The bowls take and hour or 2. We gave them to our brothers and sisters & their spouses. Woods are an assortment of walnut, bubinga, purpleheart, padouk & osage orange. The bowls include rosewood and spalted maple.

Yes, they are great and Lee is right about the picnic this year.

My wife just got a leathe. Now for the learning curve that will lead to those round bowls.

Have a great day,
