Nice turn, Jack. Any finish on it ?

Does your wife have time to play games after cooking, children raising, housekeeping, gardening, shopping, etc ?

All the best my friend.

“cup and ball game” ? where’s the cup?, where”s the ball?
This looks much more complicated to play, because you need to keep the top oriented properly to land on the peg. Did you do this on purpose to cause much consternation on the player’s part?

Nice turning by the way.

I have a hard enough time putting thoughts in front of words. Now if this was a stick and puck I might have a go at it.

I’m sure she loves it. Great and fun game to play. Beautiful shapes and choice of wood and finish.
