Day 166: Misc.

Once again no actual turning tonight but I did spend several hours in the shop.  First ripping 3 logs in half, 2 piece in the center are Shoestring Acacia, the other 4 are Mesquite.  All of these should yield 15-16" bowls. 

I also spent about an hour tonight installing some additional lighting with the help of my daughter.  2 more 4' flourescent lights were added (2 bulbs each for 4 new 4' bulbs bringing the total to 8 bulbs at 4' each), effectively doubling the light in my shop.  I think I'm also going to put up one of my dental lights.  I might have to shift my lathe a little bit but it sould be worth it.
