    a good day of turning.... =)

    well, i guess this makes up for the bad day the other day. day 1 of 4 off, and feeling up to having some fun after a 5 hour nap. the other day i made sure that i had enough purpleheart and yellowheart, and squared up the blanks and drilled them. then waited for my first day off. i also got it into my head to use up the odd bit of deer antler i had knocking around a bit in one of my table drawers. the pens will be divided into sets for a silent auction, and i will be keeping the antler one for myself. tomorrow i will be keeping myself busy with trying to turn mushrooms out of some downed willow branches we had at work. i keep this up, and i will be all funned out by the time i go back to work...

    Just proves you have to keep at it, we all have good days and bad days!

    Dan those are some good looking pens. Like Stu said there are days and then there are days. I was working on a lidded box the other day. When it broke I just shut down and went for a nap.
