Thanks for the link, Pierre. Growing up with cattle I actually like that idea. When I was about 8 or 9 I made construction paper Easter cards with Easter Bunny Seeds glued inside. Yep, you guessed it, dried ones from under the rabbit pen.

I think it's just an addiction that comes with the hobby. Everywhere I go I'm looking for something different to try. The good thing is that pen turnings not a bad thing to be addicted to. My hobby before this was taxidermy. Oh yes it was the same problems. When my wife and I would travel by car I was always looking at the dead animals on the side of the road. I'd be thinking is it something I haven't done before or something unique. Then the next questions are how bad is it mess up and how long has it been there. So next time there's the argument about the usual bad habits you can always bring up there are other things you could be doing. Of coarse there was the transition between the hobbies when I saw the dead deer and had to check out the bucks antlers for turning pens.

There's nothing wrong with you, there's something wrong with everyone else!

I haven't even started and I'm getting like that! I have an oak in my back yard that comes from an acorn from Sherwood Forest and I keep looking at some low hanging limbs and thinking, "Those look like they need to come down. Just for safety sake, you know!"

Wife wants to get into casting so now I wonder about the parts and pieces of everything I see. In fact, last night I was cleaning out the litter box and wondered...
