More turned wood, sigh...

Some other turnings...

Boxes: Hackberry, sycamore w/ walnut lid, cherry, 3-layer walnut, 'nother hackberry...
Olive S&P set...
Serendipity: the walnut and sycamore grain seem to line up...

So, when am I going to step away from the lathe and get back to other projects..?
This is very addicting!

Thanks all!

Those are some great looking pieces. Again, you should be proud of these. Although, if you keep it up, you're going to have to buy a bigger house to display them all in. Fantastic work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Thanks All!

I actually have thoughts of selling the good stuff one day...

Sold a dozen or so turned projects to colleagues and friends...

Not making any money on these, but breaking even and doing what I love... Priceless!
