This time I felt I liked to share some happy moments of my woodturning life . In the last fifteen years, or so, I had few public appearances and each time I felt as excited as the first time. I cut them off, laminate them and keep them in a safe place. Every time I look at them I pay credit to the country of good opportunities, Australia, and of course to the woodworkers community of Lumber Jocks, as well, for their friendship and encouragement.
When you read the reports, you may find some funny stories. So have a good time, my friends.
