    I like that one, Bernie. Very nice shape to it.

    Thanks. Yep I use anything and everything. If you look in my scrap pile there is not enough wood to make even a pen.

    Bernie,
    That's a nice piece... I can't see things that small, much less think about turning them... great piece!

    Thank you Chuck. I like turning those little lidded boxes. They sell pretty well to.

    Very nice!

    Pretty wood, and an appealing shape!
