    Family Get Together!

    I went back home to KS this weekend and spent some time on the lathe with my dad, a fellow FWW member. We both turned a little on the goblet in the pic, although my dad did the majority and finished it. The tools I'm holding are an Oland tool we made and my large spindle gouge with it's new handle.

    We had a great time, only wish we could have had more time. Thanks again dad for the help on the tools and the spalted hackberry log. I think I want more of it already. (stealth gloat for unfinished vase).

    Looks like you had some fun!

    What a great picture. I wish my dad were around but can't happen. Looks like you had a great time. Enjoy every minute you can.

    Tod, I didn't even notice that until you pointed it out.
