wood processing

Am I a little bit crazy or are there others who enjoy the processing of wood? I spent a lot of time time today just cutting up material and making bowl blanks. From the chain saw to the band saw. No measurements, no color options, no finish, just blanks.

I think all the processes in working with wood can be enjoyable. Something is happening right before your eyes, you are feeling, smelling and tasting, active and doing a bit of dreaming. Having some stock ready for the next steps opens the world of possibilities and anticipation.

That's funny you ask. Lol
I was cutting up blanks the other day, and I don't even have a lathe. Lol
I found it to be be therapeutic.
Spalted maple and some oak burl.

I recognize the first picture. The Wood Fairy paid a visit yesterday and left a package with those pieces inside.

Thanks Dominick
