Good afternoon fellow Lumberjocks:

Seems like it has been quite a while since I have posted any new projects here at LJ’s. Last year we built a new house which has consumed most of my time. It was time to downsize. Now that we are in, a lot of time has been going to try and figure out how to make a new shop with about half the space I had in the previous house. Great going through some of the old posts here for ideas.

Anyway, today I decided to take a break and make a couple of quick projects for a good friend, and our contractor on the new place. He is a avid snooker player and golfer. Last year he made a hole in hole and also came into possession of a signed cue ball. I felt it only right to make him a couple of pedestals to display them on. Turned on my lathe, wood used was walnut and finish is Tung oil.

I have also include a picture of our new house…....... still lots to do, but it is looking good now. :-)

Great to see you back on the job Brian, A very nice way of showing appreciation of your contractors work you must be happy with the result :-).
We downsized about 3 years ago & yes it takes a while to sort out how things are going to work here on so to speak, I was used to a stand alone shop in the back yard & now share part of a double garage, had to sell a lot of gear but hey it all worked out just fine.

Whilst the gifts are good with the house looking great,
and I do hope you’ve managed to keep a large shed for your toy workshop…
