I have not been turning because of a heart problem. I have had sever PVCs and had to wear a heart monitor for 30 days. Things are better now so I went back to the lathe.

Here is one of my latest turnings. It is Madrone turned wet partially dried in the microwave and then air dry. Stands 6 inches tall, 7 inches long and 5 inches wide. That gives you an idea of the movement in this piece. It is burl and straight grain. Weighs in at 3.0 ounces.

Great you are recovering!

Nice piece!, Daddy long legs is a nice description, I’d add: “after meeting me with my plasma rifle in the hallway last night” 8^)
