Workshop Closed for the Season...

I think today was the last day of turnings and woodworking for 2008, with 20 degree temperatures and an ice/snow-encased workshop it's time to close it up for the year. I did manage to finish all of my holiday gifts over the past couple of days. I have turned a bunch of exotic hardwood bottle stoppers, kaleidoscopes, yo-yos, and pens of course. The pictures to the right are a small sample of some of the works I've made over the past month, using everything from cocobolo to east india rosewood. So with a few days left before Christmas, the only task left is to divvy up the presents and get them wrapped.
