    Two for Tuesday

    I have been working on a couple of tutorials for a little while now and finished them tonight so I thought I would offer you two for Tuesday.

    The first tutorial is on how I make ornaments and how I hollow them out.

    The second is on making the small finials that I make on a lot of my projects.

    Let me known what you think.

              Thanks bunches for these new tutorials Ken. First I was hoping you'd go into more detail on your finishing techniques...whalla...a tutorial on it.
              Now, just last week I found myself looking at one of your boxes and musing...."I wonder how he actually turns those finials?". Well, lo-and-behold........a tutorial on just that.
              Great job.
              I know it's time consuming to commit to putting those tutorials together with pictures and all....but I for one sure do appreciate it.

                Great tutors.

                Your method of ornament making is unique, but it makes sense. Some other methods I have read about make little sense and seem overly complicated.
                Dude, you should make a tape of your adventures as you have exceptional ability to explain things so that they are easily understood.

                  As one who dosen't comment as often as I probably should, I need to thank you for your tutors. I am starting to turn more than pens and your suggestions and tutors, have been great in helping me move along slowly as I aguire tools and technique. So please keep up the great work, I've got a lot of catching up to do.
