I received a nice suprise from the mail lady today…....a package from the woodbutcher. I now realize that Ken had posted this a few days ago, but somehow I missed it and didn’t realize he did one of the turnings for me.

Photobucket

Ken said he wasn’t sure what I could do with it but thought I might be able to use it as a spittoon if my aim was really good. Well, needless to say, when Tracy read his letter, she had a much better idea and it quickly found a home on our end table…..........and she said she better not catch me spitting at it. ( she always knows what’s best for me!) lol.
Ken, thanks so much for the beautiful turning and I know it’s not a candle holder, but it’s gorgeous no matter what it’s used for and we wanted it out where everyone can see it. Thank you for thinking of us and we will cherish your gift for years to come. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and the best for the new year.

huff,
Don’t blow that candle out too soon and you might wind up with a better wax finish than the hollow form arrived with! Glad you had Tracy around to find something to do with it. Merry Christmas to you guys as well and a most prosperous New Year!

Sincerely,
Ken McGinnis

scrappy,
John brought that wenge to a picnic we had this past fall at Valspar over in High Point, N.C.. I was just returning some of it too him. I had never attempted a hollow form turning before, so I thought I’d share that experience with him. I wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year as well!

Sincerely,
Ken McGinnis

cabinetmaster,
How is that ankle doing? Hope everything is healing and proceeding well for you? Jerry I’d use that ankle excuse to just lay back and wait for a sleigh ride this Yuletide season! Naw, on second thought my wife or the kids would probably scout up a tiny sleigh and eight tiny reindeer! I can’t keep the shop clean now, no telling what kinda mess eight tiny reindeer would make. Well I hope you’ve come up with a better plan to help with your convalesence. Heres’ wishing you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year also.

Sincerely,
Ken McGinnis
p.s.
Heal well and soon!

That is beautiful piece of wood. And it’s another example of why I’m always saying that LJs hosts some of the nicest people you can find. Thanks for the post, John.

-- Cheers and God Bless
