>Boy do I miss turning. I'm half way though the bookcases I promised the wife. Yesterday while driving home I witness a big maple tree coming down. I stopped and asked If I could take a few pieces in exchange for some bowls. I grabbed up a couple of nice big chucks, but there where some really big ones we couldn't even lift into the van.
I had to slap myself when the thought came to me "Boy this tree would have make some great 1"x12" planks" But the trunk was already cut up into 24" sections. At least some bowls will be made.
Well back to the bookcases. As soon as I'm done I can start thinking about that bigger lathe.
