    Back from the edge and lived to tell about it!

    Just to stifle the voices declaring that flatlanders like myself have no depth or spinny creativity, here is a vase I turned about 20 years ago as a present for an in-law. Not up to snuff with most all of the creations displayed here, but round none-the-less.

    (Larry, don't worry. I have no intention of flirting with the vortex again. Just wanted to show that there is hope for others like Allen. He might yet 'turn' away from the dark side and seek the light.)

    Actually, very attractive form and appearance.

    Nicely done for sure, and a very creative design!

    I'll have you know I've been off the spinny thing for some time now, not by choice, but by necessity

    We'd noticed Stu, tell the truth, every so often you just turn it on to make sure it still works, right?

    Besides you have got to 'play' with the Sawstop!

    Stu, it's about time you get back to spinning some wood. You've taken a long enough break now. Just put all that stuff on hold and get back to the lathe.
