I am waiting for a friend who does pro DVDs and I will be making a insperational DVD on giving encouragement and to start and how to do turning by handicapped.

I can say it is very different way of turning since we can not move our bodies or arms the way others can, however, great things CAN be done.

Thank you Monty, Mads, and REO.

Hairy

Seeing your work I know I must be coming up in the world..

I really like the Curly Maple also. The dye just brings it out better and the Gold Metalflake makes the bowl look great. This was my first Artsy turning.
