    Larry,
    You should have had 2 more catagories
    Flat 100%
    Spinney 100%

    I'm guessing you know how I voted , but I do want to get more into the flat side of things in the coming year...

    I look at turning more like drinking, taken in moderation it's a good thing but if that all you do then your a Spinaholic..

    Larry, I want one bad. Funds and common sense are whats holding me up.

    Everybody has to have, or wants, something made. And it almost always has this round looking stuff on it.

    My feeling so far is that spinny is a hobby. I probably wouldn't even have the new lathe if my wife hadn't talked me into the NE class and came with me on a trip to the Rockler store and saw the pen making stuff and thought it was really cool. After all how many bowls and pens can you have.
    Spinny will be a hobby and flat work is a passion. My kids have requested so many pieces that I'll be busy for a long time.
    There is nothing I like more than making a bunch of parts and seeing them come together into something that will outlast me and bring a smile to their faces.
    Faith, Hope & Charity
