Default Back in Shop

Hi All,
I got back in my shop yesterday, been out with some terrible shoulder pains. Been out since Thanksgiving. My doctor says it is my mother and fathers fault, Mother Nature and Father Time. Anyway, it was sure nice to make some shavings again. If you rather seen pics instead of hearing my health complaints, yesterdays labors are attached.

Beautiful work! What kit is that for the first picture? I like it! Is it normal sized or does the picture just make it look shorter than normal?

Ben good to see you turning again. I know the pain I am going through it myself and eventually will need shoulder work. Maybe a replacement. Some nights are really tough when you can not find that sweet spot to lay.

Anyway is that BOW that is sure pretty. Love it when it has those dark streaks through it. Nice pics too. Thanks for showing.

Good to see you back. My doctor says it is my wife's fault for all the things I do for her to keep her happy because she keeps me happy!

NICE looking pens! You have not lost your touch!
