On this blog I post photos and commentary regarding my woodturning (and, occasionally, woodworking) projects. While my efforts to stay current by adding new photos and descriptions sometimes fall behind, keep checking back to see what's new. Comments are appreciated.

Last summer the city cut down a green ash tree a couple blocks from us, and I obtained a section of the trunk. I chain-sawed it into smaller chunks and turned the pieces which appear in the pictures. As these were turned "green," they distorted as they dried. In fact, the platter with the dark brown "blaze" is radically curled at the ends - it just doesn't show well in this photo.
