    Cherry gloat

    Being a good Dad, I took the fam to the circus today. Luckily, Lumber Logs is on the way downtown, so I stopped off to see Tom and Joe. I picked up a nice selection of boards. While looking through the bowl blanks, Tom said "Hey Gary, come look at this."

    Behind the building on a pallet lay 3 chunks of cherry. My wife followed me out and said "You haven't made me any cherry bowls yet."

    So its her fault. Otherwise, I'm almost sure I wouldn't have taken them home with me.

    I'm going to put them aside for awhile while I get more practice to improve my turning skills.

    Hey, now that was a good buy......or did you get them free?

    Look forward to seeing finished product.

    BTW, you may want to consider making some natural edge bowls out of them.....

    Great gloat Gary. Especially if it is the wifes fault.

    Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
