    • Just gonna give a shot to Coop for providing me great advice on fire protection multiple times. I have extinguishers in my house based off his recommendation but it'd be nice to have another 1 or 2 just to make the run to grab one when needed shorter. Second Coop do you have any good recommendations for obtaining an extinguisher such that i can teach my wife how to use it? I don't mean walk through the steps but never discharge i mean start a fire (outside) and have her try and put it out. With a previous job i went through an extinguisher use training and it was helpful to be able to use the device.
    • That's awesome, Mark! I'm certain you will do well.
    • Well deserved!  Please give us (or me at least) a reminder as the auction nears. 
    • Here's some exciting news (for me, anyway).  I just received word that "All Right" was juried into the American Association of Woodturner's POP exhibition and auction (Professional Outreach Program)!  I'm very excited, and I didn't say anything to you earlier about having entered the piece because... well... I didn't want to jinx it.  The AAW has two juried exhibitions a year, the fall Members' Exhibition, which I have been in twice, and the spring POP exhibition.  This is my first submission to the POP, which I think is a little higher level, but the big deal difference to me is that POP pieces get auctioned at the AAW symposium.  That auction is both in person and online and has national and sometimes international reach.  So I will get to see what "interest" collectors may have.  That will be June 3.  In the meantime, it and the other pieces in the exhibition will be on display in St. Paul at the AAW's gallery.   
    • I'm in agreement, your mdf frames are already likely as good or better than anything you can get at a reasonable price (and I assume you're not looking to get these custom framed professionally). Even the nicer bulk store frames are just painted pine.
