Wood Turning

January 12, 2008 - 9:00am

I have a new hobby. And yes, it is something other than stamping. I can hardly believe that! I have starting turning wood. This is where you take a piece of wood and it spins and you shape it. You can make pens, bowls, all sorts of fun things. My hubby's step mom does it and that's where I saw it. Then his dad got me the tools for Christmas. We made a little wood shop for me in the basement. It's just wonderful. This picture is of some pen tubes I turned. These were the first ones I did and they turned out great. I am quite impressed. I have just watched people and videos and this was my first go at! I am sure you will be seeing more of these in the future. Enjoy!
