A while ago I promised I’d give everybody an Easter Present so here you go everyone, Happy Easter. That one big black one is for Dick Cain, Happy Easter Dick. This took me about 2 weeks to complete all these eggs. Most are naturally colored with some poly wipe on them. I got a bunch of exotic woods when I bought the lathe. Jockmike, enjoy

Nice work, Mike.

The eggs look great and so do the bowls.

I was thinking of turning a pen or two this weekend to keep the hands tuned up. Pehaps I ‘ll try an egg too.

Hi Mike,
My wife just came upstairs all excited, & told me there was a surprise for me.

Thanks a lot Mike, I’m honored to get the biggest egg, & happy Easter to you too! I hope it’s licorice flavored.You must have a variety of different flavored shavings from of them eggs.
Have you ever tried making apples, & pears? I’ve done that, & its kind of fun.
You should get some hard Maple, & make a set of Bocce Balls. I made the small one, it’s called the Pallino, I guess. The set I had, came with a lousy pallino.

I so want to get a lathe. I think I need to get a second job just to support my habit.
