    Wake Up,, its time to get back at it!!!,, we HAVE enough,next time

    Ok,, here is an idea and lets see if we can get some takers,, seeun as how the last project swap went great, and its been sometime since we have had one.. lets get some dust of our tools..even the spinny ones jeff this project needs to be completed by dec. 15.. plenty of time right.. and its gonna be a swap with other fellow members.. it can be spinny or flat or a combo.. we should make it to fit in a large flat rate box. that way those fine looking heavy sided bowls can fit in easily or a nice hollow form.. yup yur gettin the idea this is to be a project yu would give best friend. not the boss or the neighbor down the road that gave yu a basket of veggies this summer.. strut your stuff here to with in reason and this can be already done to help on the time frame for the spinny guys and the slower flat workers the folks that enter will be picked randomly by a non partisipateing memeber if possible.. and if there are enough to do this i am going to see if we can have the name yu get to send to given to yu before the starting time.. gotta get some outside help on this and to see if it is fair but if yu happened to get a guy yu dont want to send him a jewelry box and if anyone has any input on this as to ow we should set it up feel free to jump in.. we will have a starting date of the oct 26th if we can get it sorted out that fast .. well thats all i got now let see where this can go oh and allen yu are so fast yu already got yours done and have read the pm that tells yu who yu got to send to so go to your local post office and get a large flat rate box so yu can see the size requirements.. i think its 12x12x5.5 and cost is the same no matter the weight or destination upto 70 lbs.. so even a small plane could be slipped in or a heavy piece of ironwood Also these need to be dated and signed folks

    I am going to have to wait for the second go around Larry, sorry. I don't have stuff moved in yet and the garage is not fit, well, errrrr, not fit to work in. Anyway, was wondering if this was how Larry was going to anonymously send out his first spinny work!!!

    I might be able to help, Spindle work ? I can only do up to 16" long without buying the extension on my little Rikon. Which I been thinking about..
    I can turn up to 12" Dia max. other wise I'd have to just get the big yeller model..

    Be brave and throw on a extra layer of cloth or work faster. I have to see if I can get time for this.
