Sawmillin' n woodturnin' *PIC*

Congrats on the anniversary!

I fired up the sawmill and started milling ERC for siding on the new peacock house.

Took a mini donkey to the church for a Christmas program - a friend took some lambs. The donkey was uncooperative and refused to enter the building! Oh well, it was a nice day for a drive. :)

A young friend wanted to make a present for her sister. She picked a very challenging small squarish platter which requires "turning air" for the corners. This was only her 3rd time at the lathe but fortunately she is a quick learner. (Must be, she graduated from college at the head of her class at age 17!) She mastered fine controlled bevel-rubbing cuts with the Hunter Hercules tools even the delicate cuts on the wings, turned the recess and shaped the bottom. Maybe finish up tomorrow evening.
