I am now back into woodworking for a living....AGAIN !!!!!. One of thoise things I said I would never do AGAIN !!!!!
Anyway, to keep it fun, I still work on fun stuff. Not nearly as much as I would like but I still stick something in every now and then just for the change.
Here is a fun project I started. All I have to do is apply finish, which will happen this week when I finish other peoples stuff at the same time. For those of you that are not familial with Louisianna area, the legs and apron are made of cypress. The worm holey top is called pecky cypress. These are from logs that sank to the bottom of the swamp and layed there for a very very long time. All of the holes are made from ship worms and other marine life. After I apply the lacquer finish, I will have a piece of glass cut for the top. The reason it is a fun project is because it is not slated for anyone, I just felt like making it.
When I had my big shop in Arkansas, I would turn a bowl everyday after closing. This relaxed me and I will start doing that again.
