Spring Turning

Spring is finally here in Northwest Ohio. Average temperatures have been in the 50's the past week or so, and that has allowed me to spend much needed time in my garage cleaning up from the "winter of neglect". I was finally able to clean up my lathe, just in time to make a fresh pile of wood shavings. I had a request for a kaleidoscope in no specific wood. I found an old cocobolo bottle stopper blank witch was perfect for the required dimensions. A few months away from wood turning did not seem to erode my skills at all, and it felt good to slip back into my hobby.
