First kayak run of the year, actually two years...didnt make it out last year. The lake was very high but was a great run. Was the first time Teyla ever got out in the water and on a kayak and LOVED it! Beautiful day, and great start to the weekend! #kayaking #kayakingadventures at Rough River Lake

Tonight, I stayed super focused on technique and efficiency. Shots outline from end of a tung oil finish to the beginning of rounding out the stock of a Bradford Pear. Great stock to stay focused on the cuts without crazy figure, pithes from limbs, etc. Wrapped up (exception of tenon removal and a few more coats of oil) within an hour and a half, from cutting, sanding, to oil finish. Improvement but not where I wanna be for such a simple turn. Must do better. . . . . . . . . #wood #woodturning #turning #lathe #woodturnings #woodturninglathe #woodturner #woodshaving #WoodWorking #woodworkers #woodisgood #woodshop #woodgrain #woodart #madeinkentucky #turning #lathe #lathework #woodisgood #woodgrain #woodturningbowls #artisan #naturalbeauty #makersgonnamake #woodart #powermaticlathe #powermatic #goals #goalsetting

A few months ago, February-ish, my parents house burned down. They've been working on getting back on the property since and are very close to moving back into a new home on their lot. A few months ago, Dad noticed that the weeping willow they had on the property didn't make it, for whatever reason, and he cut it down asking me if I'd like to take some of the trunks to turn. Of course, I said yes. Last night, I finished adding color (my first attempt doing so... a technique I'm still working to finesse), and gave this to them as a house warming gift. They loved it and will also serve as a reminder for them of the tree they lost. It's these little keepsakes that take one back to a time and a place. Photography and turning will always play that role of documenting those moments. . . . . . . . . #wood #woodturning #turning #lathe #woodturnings #woodturninglathe #woodturner #woodshaving #WoodWorking #woodworkers #woodisgood #woodshop #woodgrain #woodart #madeinkentucky #turning #lathe #lathework #woodisgood #woodgrain #woodturningbowls #artisan #naturalbeauty #makersgonnamake #woodart #powermaticlathe #powermatic

Made this bowl last night and wrapped up finishing this evening for my neighbor, Mr. Greenwell, whose row of Bradford Pears took a huge hit that wiped out the complete row (maybe 5 trees) back this past Autumn. I asked to snag some of the trunks to turn and he happily obliged. I've been wanting to turn that stock for awhile but my old lathe (Central Machinery) just couldn't handle the density. But with my new #Powermatic 2020, made easy work. Love this beast of a machine. . . . . . . . . #wood #woodturning #turning #lathe #woodturnings #woodturninglathe #woodturner #woodshaving #WoodWorking #woodworkers #woodisgood #woodshop #woodgrain #woodart #madeinkentucky #turning #lathe #lathework #woodisgood #woodgrain #woodturningbowls #artisan #naturalbeauty #makersgonnamake #woodart #powermatic

Despite needing to continue to finish consolidating space in the garage, I had to take some time just to give the new lathe a whirl on its maiden turn. . . . . . . . . #wood #woodturning #turning #lathe #woodturnings #woodturninglathe #woodturner #woodshaving #WoodWorking #woodworkers #woodisgood #woodshop #woodgrain #woodart #madeinkentucky #turning #lathe #lathework #woodisgood #woodgrain #woodturningbowls #artisan #naturalbeauty #makersgonnamake #woodart #powermatic

After working over the shop to prepare for today's delivery, it arrived this morning!! This afternoon while waiting for the rain showers to quit, it's now put together!! Electricians come in tomorrow, put in a new panel (existing one had seen a few years and needed a new upgrade anyway) to add a 220. Tomorrow, I'm certain I'll have a bowl turned by midnight!! . . . . . . . . #wood #woodturning #turning #lathe #woodturnings #woodturninglathe #woodturner #woodshaving #WoodWorking #woodworkers #woodisgood #woodshop #woodgrain #woodart #madeinkentucky #turning #lathe #lathework #woodisgood #woodgrain #woodturningbowls #artisan #naturalbeauty #makersgonnamake #woodart #powermatic

Had some time to turn a bowl this weekend. A little sawdust-therapy. Some solid PT for the right-hand. Was very sore at the end of the day Saturday, but well worth it. Hoping it will be 100% in 6 weeks. Bowl below is from the burl that I believe is walnut, but still not seeing the curled figure you'd normally see in a burl, but hey, still some beautiful grain. Gave away as a going away gift, and do hope to start pushing product to sell soon!! . . . . . . . . #wood #woodturning #turning #lathe #woodturnings #woodturninglathe #woodturner #woodshaving #WoodWorking #woodworkers #woodisgood #woodshop #woodgrain #woodart #madeinkentucky #turning #lathe #lathework #woodisgood #woodgrain #woodturningbowls #artisan #naturalbeauty #makersgonnamake #woodart

As an early Father's Day tribute, I have to pass along the imparted wisdom from my Dad to me, and passed down to all of us kids at a very early age, "Now son, a true test of a man's dexterity is his ability to effectively wipe his booty with his left Hand. Only then will one truly appreciate the skills appointed to the right. " After multiple hand surgeries in his lifetime, he's is a true sensai. (... OK, he didn't say booty, but... you get the gist. AND also implies the opposite of the dominant hand. 🤣). Due to my recent handicap, let's just say, I put that wisdom to task and my dexterity was tried and tested with impeccable failure. "BUT" my problem-solving skills are top-shelf!! I do appreciate the power "behind" baby wipes!!! #IdNotTemptFateWithFailureASecondTime #SurvivorOutWitOutLast #NewAgeWisdom #TMIButWisdomMustBePastDown

Crazy past few days and weekend. Super busy and not slowed down. But saw specialist yesterday and confirmed, "Yep, it's broke."... "Thanks 'Dr. Obvious', now what?" "We can cast it, and it'll heal in about 6-12 weeks, you'll have a bump on the side, and you'll never lay your palm flat again....OR we can put a pin in it Friday, and you'll have immediate use of your hand and it'll go back to normal." "Seriously, doc... how many of your patients choose option 1???". :::while giving him a sardonic expression that shocked him that I even posed the question and then I wave it off::::: "Don't answer that, it's the stupidity of the answer I already know that 'triggered' this outcome. I'll see you Friday." #ImDoneWithStupid #ThatIncludesMyself #CircleGameThatsTwo #YouKnowYouSawIt

My mission today: one bowl from this beautiful walnut burl. Though I've not had the luxury, as I had hoped, to build an inventory, the necessity of turning a bowl as a gift always takes precedence. I've been saving this piece for over 6 months... one, in hopes I'd have a new lathe to then use a coring tool... but alas, unable to justify the expense at this time. So, I cut out some blanks using the chainsaw from a half piece, and started a turn. To create this peice as a gift, as an artisan, thinking of that person who it's intended through the process, truly leaves a signature for both parties. . It's been an interesting end to the month, and it's always important to pay homage and respect to your mentors, teachers, leaders, and I do hope this pays but a small bit of respect of how much this person impacted my path.

Started working on this Memorial Day weekend project Friday, and have worked a few hours each day through the weekend to finally wrap it up! Added garden boxes around the grape trellis and added a decked walkway down the middle. Still gotta add another step on the back-end, and trim work, but very pleased that I got 98% of it finished. Next, deck the floor for the wisteria arbor and add the rope swing inside it.
