That’s great Paul I’m sure it will be a tremendous learning experience and a lot of fun. always good to add to the skill set of what can be done with wood

Yeah I took the "Case on Stand" class a couple years ago and it was an intense week but I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to diving further into this subject matter

There are more turning classes at Marc Adams, but I am really tempted to sign up for glass blowing and neon sign making.

I actually made some sawdust, more of the self-trained kind of guy (jealous much? lol). Made a few mistakes along the way, as usual, but I somehow make the work in the long run. My wife married me knowing I'm not perfect so at least I don't have THAT expectation to meet!

We don't have classes nearby here in the "Inland Empire" so I live vicariously through y'all who do :)

Oh lord, I can't have one more hobby but that sounds like a blast!

a mild winter day with a little snow on the ground is the best i think.

Texas definition of a mild winter day is temps in the low 60’s with no snow within hundreds of miles! ;)

Cleaned the shop of wood scraps. Had some family help too. Small fires out side during winter are nice.

I agree! I did mine just last weekend as well :)

Another long version of In A Gada Da Vida! Sure brings back memories, to the best of my memory.

That came out in ‘68 as I recall. I actually listened to the B side of that album and thought that was good stuff too :)

For some reason, my memories of that song all have huge gaps in them.

Must be the drum solo part *shrug*

We lived in the “Inland Empire” for a few years. Driving East from there I always chucked at the highway signs for “Other desert cities”. 
It’s just a day’s drive up to the Krenov school though! :P
