My new hobby

As you all know, I'm not at all happy doing nothing and now that we both have more free time, I have taken up a new hobby.

As long as I can remember, I have been good with my hands and I like creating.   Working at Carba-Tec has given me the opportunity to learn to work with wood.  To this end I purchased a small lathe and have been learning how to turn wood.

So far I have turned Pens, Small Lidded Boxes, Salt and Pepper Grinders and Bowls and Platters.   I will show you some of my successes soon.
