|Some antler waiting for whatever. It is fascinating to turn although I prefer wood. The smell of it turning can drive me out of the shop so I like to wait for warm weather and an open window. It does attract the neighbourhood dogs. Before the anti-hunting lobby gets out to shoot me, let me point out that this comes from a fellow near Wycogamagh reserve in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. He raises red deer and they shed their antler every year. I got this and some other antler for turning him a couple of pens. Renewable resource.
|Wood moves. This used to be a straight spindle. Kindling.
|Stuff gets moved. The small burls are added to from the shelf and moved out of the way. The green mesh bag was falling apart so I gave them a new bag.
|Over 44 projects, mostly bowls but including an osprey carving and a couple of chunks of basswood.
|Spindles are separated, far too many kept by a wood packrat, the shelving removed and wiped down. This is the chance to do things like notice this bracket needs repairing.
|And returning those nice, clean shelves. This is one of he great benefits of a complete clean. What other time does something like this get done, even though it should?
