    Abysseration complete

    So I'm walking several blocks away from my van this afternoon... Taking photos for work when I see three gents picking up twigs from recently felling a small tree. I walk on by...

    then I go back and ask if I can have a piece or two of wood...

    A couple of minutes later I'm walking with these on my hips...

    I think I'm done for. To top it off, I asked for a lathe chuck for Christmas.

    The vortex is strong in this one.


    Looks like your new wood might have some nice stuff inside. Get it sealed up so it doesn't crack any more than it has.
