Always great work Roger. Give yourself a double scoop of ice cream for these.

Roger, you are a woodworking machine!
I think you get out of the hammock more than you let on.

Nice looking turnings, but what are bracelet helpers?

Roger…I heard rumors lately that you set up an overhead lathe system that could be used while relaxicating in your hammock. I guess it’s true. Nice pens… and helpers of the bracelets…whatever that is…I like the ones with the stylus because it comes in handy when using those credit card scanners at the shows. I have a cheapo plastic stylus from office depot and is much mo better than using the fingers.

Does your hammock have a ski on the bottom, Roger? ;)

These are truly lovely! I still love my seam ripper that I got from you. I use it with my needlework and think of you each time I use it.

Keep up the good work!

I’m going to show my ignorance, Roger. I’ll join Hillbilly Shooter in asking…...what are bracelet helpers.

Have you done any “stylus”.......the thing that you use on your iphone or iPad and other modern day gadgets. I’m sure your connections will help you find something to use as the little rubber tips that they use. One of those fancy turnings of yours would sure turn heads….sorry about the wording.

You deserve to go back in the hammock after making these. Nicely done Roger.

Nice work Roger….With all the ice cream comments I read on all your project posts I’m surprised that there isn’t ice cream scoops with beautifully turned wooden handles flying off your lathe…..
