Day 266: Organization

Additional practce for Saturday.  A dried roughout in Shoestring Acacia I got late last year.

I was practicing making the best cuts I can, trying to make a bowl as close to finish ready without any sanding.  I think I did a pretty good job, now I have to try and do it under pressure.

I also sorted a ton of pen blanks with the help of my kids.  The bins from top to bottom are:
African Sumac (left)
Desert Ironwood (right)
Box Elder Burl (left)
Oak Burl (right)
and the big bin is a mixture including Redwood Burl, Mesquite, Saguaro Cactus rib, Honey Locust, Myrtle, and a variety of other other blanks.
