I stopped my job as an industrial hand woodturner about 20 years ago, but finally decided to put some of the unpaid fun pieces that were laying around the house onto one upper shelf in the office. Looks a bit like a menagerie of my woodturning history (the fun part anyway). All the industrial pieces like the stair balusters, newel posts, porch posts, etc., well I didn’t show them off cause that was work!

Welcome to LJs. Wow, an industrial woodturner… and you still found time to have some fun with it too. I’ve got a shelf a little like your’s, my wife says I can dust them though. Looks like real nice work.
