A couple of months ago i was showing off a new turning at a local restaurant/bar. I wasn’t eating! A fellow patron ask me about what I did and in the course of the conversation offered me a couple of pieces of walnut lumber he had left over from a remodeling project. I thought, bonzana and thanked him very much.
Today, a knock at the door and he had brought the 10 pieces of willow from a yard project.
All he asked for it was me to make a small bowl from one of the pieces.
SO, drinking is not all bad.
