>I completed a really cool magic wand this morning - after vacuuming spiders out of my turning stock. The wand has already been adopted by a local wizardly type. Durn! I was considering keeping that one, but once it's claimed, there's this energy transfer... (smile) Earlier this week, a "wand" was adopted and renamed a "yad" - the pointer used to read Torah. I feel blessed.

Over the weekend, I made my first ever pen. That went well enough that I'll have to mosey on over to Woodcraft and pick up some more fixin's. Could become as addictive as wands. The pen was not a complete embarrassment, so I took it to write with at the faculty meeting Tuesday. The prof next to me tried to steal it. Guess that means it was good enuf, eh?

Last week, I made my third lidded box for my sister Pam's birthday. So far, I like each box better than the last, but boy do I have lots to learn! I took pics of the box, but I'm still figuring out the new laptop - running Vista - and I haven't tried pictures yet. I considered making a full confession of errors I made along the way and things I obviously have yet to learn, when I post the picture. Is absolution possible?
