Preparing Blanks for Demonstration
Had a physically active day yesterday with great windsurfing (looks good again today!) and a couple of hours of table tennis so I did not have the energy to do much creative work on the lathe. Spent the time making blanks that can be used here or for demonstration.
These are all for use on the pinchucks that I have been developing.
There is a selection of woods in the box but yesterday I made mostly honey locust and box elder (Manitoba maple) blanks to be used to make small containers and test tube vases.
I also noticed three frogs that have emerged from the water this morning. Hopefully they enjoyed the steak I gave them yesterday.
