Default Is anyone building?

Or am I the only one making saw(lathe) dust.....post some pictures... good bad or ugly!

I'm working on hand carved stuff, foil finished (thank you Husky and fat fingers) the proto types look a swim good, I'll post the finished products when I finish my other Holiday projects....

I'm also working on some "half and halfs" half off center turned, half hand carved,(swim lip carved into the plug, no metal) they look good, I just need to get them to swim a little more conistantly, right now I'm at two out of three... again will post when they are done.

Some of whats been done this fall....

I have got to hunker down and clean out my shop - my folks are moving and there are boxes of stuff that have ended up in my garage. It's to the point where I can't do anything out there.
