Well finally made it home Friday night after being on the road with my job. Next month is even going to be worse since it is the end of the fiscal year and performance check up time. Anyway got the little bench done and the two drawers done to hold my new Tormek T-7. One drawer holds the turning jigs and the other the hand tool jigs. I got the Tormek setup today and got to use it a little well maybe a lot. The LOML seemed to think since it cost $799 that the first things sharpened should be here kitchen knives and her (14 pair) of scissors. Yep I did them all and wow does it work well. Her knives will shave my arm after sharpening and honing. Her test to see if I got her scissors sharp enough was to cut some denium so they did with no problem. I also sharpened two of my cheapest bowl gouges that I got when I first started turning then took them to some pine just to try them. It is amazing the difference. Anyway happy to have it done and ready to go to work.
