Since the name of this site is "RW's Shop," I decided to include some of my shop work and project stuff.
(Click on the pictures below for more.)
|My most recent bowl project. Click either one of the pictures to see more. It is a "salad mixing bowl" -- until somebody comes up with a better name for it.|
|<-- This is the beginning of what will be a set
of eight salad bowls. A little instruction from my friend, David,
has improved my skills and my confidence.
And, this is the end. -->
|Although I have owned a lathe for years, I had never used it until a friend of mine got me interested in "turning" (as it's called). So far, I have been doing only small vases of different interesting woods and now a few bowls.|
|I'm not sure if this was a project or a venture into madness, but, whatever it was, this stump consumed a few weeks of my time, an enormous amount of energy and enough iced tea to float a small boat.|
|There really was a purpose to the stump removal project. It had to go to make way for the Oriental Garden project. This one will take a while, so check back occasionally to see how I'm doing.|
|A "project page" would not be complete without including my lifetime favorite work -- this jewelry box that I made over twenty-five years ago for the Love of My Life. It was one of her most cherished possessions.|
