    Sometimes, Life Gets In the Way...

I literally thought I was going to die, and I even got the flu shot this year. Well, I finally got over it after a month, then my...

    Does anyone recall a thread on back painting...

    Where someone did 3 or 4 of the exact same blanks & left one plain brass on the tube, and the others were different paints so you could see the difference it made? I know I saw it but I can't find it now. Does anyone recall this thread or have a link to it? Thanks for any help.

    How many blanks do you keep on hand?

    In conjunction with my other question, it's only human nature to ask how many blanks you keep on hand. I don't know how many wood blanks I have, but probably enough for the rest of my life. I have 2 large Rubbermaid storage bins full of wood blanks here. I will have to sell off some of them...

They are being offered for $40 each, plus shipping. They should fit in a FRPE but I'm not positive on that. Either way, you only pay for actual...

    SNOW !!!

    We got about 12" of snow here the other day. Normally, it would shut down everything around here. I was mildly surprized to see a snow plow the same day the storm hit actually plowing our neighborhood. They really did a good job getting the streets clear this time. Next time, we might not be so...

    Which do you turn the most of?

    Acrylics or wood? I turned a lot of wood, but nowadays I find myself turning way more acrylics. I find them more interesting & challenging to turn is why. How about YOU ?? :smile:

    Recommend a kit for me?

    I'm looking for a fairly ornate, but easy to assemble kit. I'd prefer a one piece barrel, and slightly longer than usual. I'd like one around 6" long, but not too heavy & uncomfortable to write with. I don't want anything thick or bulky. If you can think of such a kit, please respond. I'd like...
