    My weekend work

    Here's some of what I finished this weekend. Another 25 are already wrapped but they do not differ much from these.

    left to right:

    2 Padauk
    3 Bocote
    2 Cocobolo
    1 Wenga
    1 Purpleheart
    1 Cedar
    1 maple with hints of blur dye
    3 Mystery wood

    Hope you like them

        Very nice mudder. I am working on a few pens myself, but nowhere near that quantity. I wish I could turn them out that fast. The finishing seems to slow me down.

        Nice work

          Your rapid production schedule seems to be working well, Scott. They look great. I think there may be one flaw in your schedule, though. Don't you have a delivery of a mini-lathe scheduled?

            Why yes,

            As a matter of fact it is scheduled for tomorrow. But with the holidays and phase 2 of the turning center ramping up, I don't think I'll have time to open the box till after the new year.

                Do you mean to sit there and tell me that you are gonna be able to sleep with an un-opened mini-lathe in the shop? Man! You have far more will power than I do.

                  Nobody has the will power of Pappy! I bet his Jet is still in the box! Even if I could not use mine it would have become an ornament in the living room until I could. I have a problem with stuff sitting in a box, especially a tool. Scott, trying raising that Jet at least 3 inches higher than your other lathe. I really like mine higher and you will find your pen making much more comfortable.

                    Turned 4 bowls yesterday for gifts. Got them out and finished so fast I did not get a chance to get a picture of them. This turning stuff is really starting to get addictive. !!!

                      Very nice pens Scott... love those Bocote ones... I've found the cedar looks nice, but does not wear well at all... to soft.

                      Ken, I'm with you on the un-opened tool issue. My wife gets that smirk on her face when we pull in the driveway with a new tool. It's the "I guess I won't be seeing you till after midnight while you figure out the new toy" smirk.

                        Cheif,

                        If you find yourself in the local woodcraft trying to trade your service sidearm for a chunk of big leaf maple burl it's time to seek professional help.

                              Trade ??? With that I can just take it, or maybe get a search warrant to seize it as possible "stolen" property, or just file a civil action to seize it as proceeds on a "criminal" enterprise.
