    Gloat and Score

    Called our local turning shop and they had an amazing price on the 1/2" swan much so I couldn't pass it up. The savings allowed me to score some blanks. Merry Christmas to me!!

    The tool and the wood looks nice, but that's secondary...

    You have a local turning shop? Lucky dawg! I'm in LA and I've not found anything resembling a shop for turners (except for Rockler, and they are pretty limited)

    We have Idea Saw Works, only game in town. Many of us boycott them because they change policy and prices more than most change BVD's. I really wanted this one and Craft Supply was out of stock. ISW is always more expensive shipping not withstanding. Craft Supply and Woodcraft both get me stuff in 2 days so I was willing to wait. Just got luck this time.

    Congrats on your haul. That is some nice looking wood. The tool should serve you well.
