Default Greetings from Michigan

Finally getting around to introducing myself.
I've always been interested in turning of all kinds but never got around to doing anything about it until February this year I found a Shopsmith at a yard sale. I have been turning pens for the most part ever since.

Recently though I have begun dabbling in casting my own blanks thanks to Zach at NVWoodwerks and Bob (RJBWoodturner)

My first casting was for my Wife whose dog we had to put down a couple of months ago...

Beautiful pen (my condolences, been there a few months back also).

Welcome. Always good to remember our fur kids. Wouldn't it be nice if people were as kind as they were?
