Default Christmas Turnings

Well another big order has come and gone. I made 24 birdhouses, 12 key ring toothpick holders, 4 bells and 6 ornaments. Been turning about 10 hrs a day last week and delivered them Wednesday to Buffalo Bill Cultural Center. I am in the midst of making another 12 birdhouses, 4 pizza cutters and 4 veggie peelers. So been a little busy. Took some time off today just to sit and watch football plus put down a little turkey. Ice on everything and now snow on top makes it rather slick. So guess it will be hibernate in the shop to finish up tomorrow.

Bernie, you make me wish more and more for a lathe! Nice job!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Need some other tools, that I don't have room for, first. But, if I happen across a good deal...

Nice! Thanks for showing them. How about an end view of the bells? Curious.
