2010 and Creative Freedom!

I am happy to report that 2010 not only brings new opportunity, new experiences and new people but it also brings a brand new Powermatic 3520B wood lathe into the shop on Lakeshore Blvd! After a couple of years of workin gonly on my custom Vicmarc VL100 (a small lathe), I pulled the trigger (on the last day of 2009) on a big lathe. I love my small Vicmarc and will continue to use it but the big machine means I will be back to turning bowls and will no longer be restricted in expression by my machine… which is to say I am now able to make pretty much whatever I can dream up and do not have to worry about the lathe’s capacity and limitations! My dogs are also excited because this means more cruising the woods for storm damage and dead trees (i.e. chasing squirrels up trees and aimless running)! I can’t wait! I hope the new year and new decade brings good things to you all!!

The new addition!
