I had my operation Friday and havent had the strength to do much of anything in the shop. I tried to turn a segmented bowl yesterday, but didn’t finish because I had to run out to my sawyer and get some walnut and box elder blanks. After that I was wiped out, so I did a little finishing on some bowls I have in the works and sat around Jonesin to go back down and work some more.
I got some 3” walnut and 3.5” box elder with some flame in it. I can get about 10 blanks out of all those. Paid 130$ so 13$ a blank is pretty good for those woods.
I have about 10 blanks I purchased from GotWood all of exotic wood.

I’m buying my blanks with either a spindle or another thinner blank so I have the option from now on to make a lid or a pedestal or base for my turnings if I think they need it.

So happy Monday my brothers.

I’m Jonesin for some saw dust.
