All right, this is no longer a brand new, never-before-seen, one-of-a-kind, truly unique, web site full of good reading, simply because it is no longer brand new. And the eclectic pictorial assortment of turned wood heirlooms needs some fervent attention, which I have been derelict in providing. But I'm likely to get around to it, in due course. (Be advised that my life is filled with many courses.) I guess I should update my photo, as well. Hmmm. What to do? What to do? I know - I'll turn some more wood!

For the under-initiated, a lathe is an instrument to which you can attach a piece of wood and give it a whirl. Belt driven by a motor, it causes the wood to spin wildly. In fact, that's part of the initiation process. In short order, one learns to appreciate rapid spinning, much more than wild spinning. By applying a sharp tool to the wood, while it is rapidly spinning, usually anywhere from a couple hundred rpm to 3-4,000 rpm, the wood can be shaped into myriad designs.
