Well haven't gotten much turning done as we have been on the road quite a bit since grandson is only 4 1/2 hrs away now and grandma retired. Imagine that. Anyway my sister with a little help from me is restoring a old bellows type organ from Germany. Beautiful organ and she needed a piece turned that holds the oil lamp or candle holder. One was missing from the right side. So I took the one she had and made a new one. It is oak stain with Dark Walnut with varnish as a finish to match the old finish. Nothing great but was fun to get back to the shop and reproduce a piece. She also gave me a antique chair to fix that had fallen off the pickup. It was her husbands grandmothers that was passed down to his mother and now to him. It broke both back legs in half at the seat and split the seat. I got the legs cut, sanded and put together. The seat was repaired with biscuits and the chair was sand then stain with walnut. It will get a lacquer finish. I know it is not turning but just fun to be in the shop none the less.
Retirement: That’s when you return from work one day
and say, “Hi, Honey, I’m home – forever.”
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
