    Halloween Surprise!!

    Arrived in the mail this morning from Vaughn! ( Cynthia in British Columbia )

    I don't think this will work for a pen.
    Not sure what the bowl is going to look like after turning, but could be interesting.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Jokes apart I believe that something really interesting could be done on the lathe as you suggest on the second pic.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    There was a knock on my door today too from the mail guy. strange looking package from Courtney wrapped to the nines with tape. Thanks Cynthia for the smile just in time for the under water pumpkin carving contest. Never tried one this small before. I carved the white one a few years ago. Winning the scariest pumpkin three years in a row. Hmmmm will post what I do with this one. How long do birthday candles burn for?

    Since you're "the boss of everything" as one of my kids used to say, I put your name on the return address Vaughn.
