    Turning, turning turning .......woodside .........

    OK but I get the rawhide theme in my head while turning and I can't stop. No their not wand's for a Harry Potter movie. Their strikers for Slate and glass top pot calls for turkey season. I have a strong dislike for the conventional strikers , Bland and very un appealing to the eye. We have 3 woods here. Brazilian Rosewood, Cristobal and Iron Wood. The Cristobal has the very dark and blond wood , same wood that a lot of bagpipers use. While on the lath 1 small drop of 100% tung oil rubbed till your hand catches fire as it turns.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    The Cristobal is very nice and well rosewood is always a winner.

    Don't forget to brand them.

    They look great.

    I like the dark ones, but ones with the unique camo will probably be appealing to a lot of people out in the feild.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    This reminds me,

    a while back I brought a Duck Call into the house.

    First quack she asked what it was, wife was not ammused.

    Second quack, well I should have known better--lol

    Good hunting my freind.
