    Idea for younger turners

    I wish I had gotten interested in wood turning when I was younger. I would have (I think) cut a piece off of each Christmas tree we put up and over the year turned a Christmas ornament out of it. I would at least put the date one it but also, maybe, write some memorises from that Christmas and put inside it. Be like a little time capsule Each year you would have a new ornament to add to the tree.

    Just a thought.

    My DIL has 3 ornaments of mine and wants a new one every year from now on. Grandson really likes poppa's mini birdhouses.

    Hi Paul ,
    That is a tremendous idea and I am sure a bunch of the turners will begin doing it. Thanks for sharing a very marvelous thought!
    Any ideas on what to do with that Easter Bunny?

    I've always said that rather then give away those nasty old Cigars that are no longer vogue on the birth of a child, people should give out wooden pens instead. Nothing says the Circle of Life, like a piece of wood that was once a living, breathing thing, morphed into a whole new useful product. Not to mention a wooden pen would last much, much longer.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
