I think she is pretty good right now and should get some recognition. Nice work Jill, how long have you liked turning?

That green one, is that dye on it? Mitch

The green one is that way naturally. It's Norfolk Island Pine. When you turn it thin the knots become translucent. It is very hard to turn and very hard to get thin enough to be translucent without a catch and subsequent explosion.....

She's going at it pretty slow, and it should be pretty nice...This piece is not the best...The Knots are not centered on the trunk. The nicest one's have the knots centered and they look almost like a star pattern when it's finished...

That's pretty. Does it stay green? If so where do you get Norfoke Pine?

I can see this coming: "Y Kevin, you get it from a pine tree in Norfoke!"

The stuff grows in Florida....It's prized because the branches grow upward and that's how the star design is made. I picked the 2 piece we got at the AAW symposium last year. That's the only place I've really found it. It's about $20.00 a bf. I got Jill a couple of pieces cuz she had never turned it, but she don't want any more....She said it's too nerve wracking since it's so expensive......

Hey Frank....

Nice to hear from you.....I hear you got a LOT of BF off your logging.

Maybe a little more than expected....

Maybe you and Alice should load up a BIG truck and come to the cheese....
