Nice work Roger! That will be perfect. One for me and one for the Mrs. I will PM you the shipping address. ;)

The wood is very nice. How is it to turn? I have not used bicote before.

And Happy Thanksgiving!

Very nice job x2. The “penmeister” strikes again—glad you’re getting in some shop time. Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family and friends, and all LJs out there!
