Day 342: Undecided
I wasn't sure what to do tonight. I thought about turning a pen for myself but didn't really feel like it. Then I reconsidered and and picked out a kit I haven't made before when I realized that I don't have the correct bushings for the kit. I found a set of bushings I thought would be close enough to work (something I do not recommended!) but finally decided I wasn't in the mood for pen turning. Instead I grabbed a roughed out Maple Burl bowl off the shelf and set about getting it finished.
This is from the Maple Burl the clbu bought back in March, I roughed out this piece back in March (http://agoodturndaily.blogspot.com/2010/03/day-219-misc.html) and had it drying inside for a couple of months and then moved it out to the shop for a couple of months. I got lucky, It didn't move much in the drying process.
