    Nicely done.
    The thing that holds up all my woodworking is simply getting started.

    Yep!

    You'll know you're totally hooked when you have turned every piece of scrap wood in your shop, and start checking your neighbor's yard for more turning material. You have now officially entered the DARK SIDE.

    No need to dry it first. The beauty of turning is you can just turn anything.

    Nice finish too. And, you are close enough to get to the guild mtg at NCSU to learn more and meet a great group. AAW symposium is in Raleigh this summer.
    Keep it going, Ed

    Very nice looking.
    Once you get sucked in you will start looking at every downed tree as you are riding in your car thinking, mmm...wonder what that would looks like turned? Should I turn around and ask for a piece? lol
