    For such a grizzled-looking cuss, Larry's pretty OK, huh? Those both look like nice wood. When he said spalted maple he wasn't kidding.

    look what i got in the mail

    Yessir, I have to agree about "Good 'Ole" Larry. Here's what I got in the mail too. I've got to get together with a fellow turner to use his coring tool so I don't waste any more of this piece than I have to.

    Thank you so much Larry. You are really an "Ambassador" of good will.

    Aloha, Tony

    Hey Stephen,

    You just got to get out more.

    But seriously, get involved with a local turners group. How did I find my group? Well, my roofing contractor is a member and invited me. Strange how the connections happen, but they work. Great bunch of people and lots of great workmanship.

    I'll probably have to wait until I return from vacation before trying to turn this piece. It won't spoil because Larry had it all sealed well in wax. (Or Anchorseal?)

    I want to build a coring setup of my own, to scale for my Jet Mini. I don't see me getting anything bigger so that would do. I liked the one that someone posted the link to on FWW. That one might be best for me, but a McNaughton clone could be too.

    Aloha, Tony
