Wood turning is fast becoming my husband's favorite
activity. He has been working on bottle stoppers
and additional seam rippers this past week.
The designs are one of a kind, no molds or templates
to follow other than purchasing the pre-made metal parts. The wood
ranges from cherry, mahogany and exotics.
This is a tall stopper, better for a larger bottle.
Smaller stoppers with a mushroom design.
Pens in all shapes and wood types.
He has sold a few of the bolt action pens,
they are popular with hunters, people in the
military and collectors of unusual pens.
He is starting an inventory of seam rippers.
We've had some interest in these and have
come up with a price for local sales but
I have to understand shipping for anyone outside
of our area. I have two on order at work.
You remove the tip, turn it around and
reinsert into the wooden handle to use the
ripper. For storage, reinsert into the wooden handle.
That's is what is happening in our neck of the woods.
I've been playing around with material of course and
made my first quilted bowl holder for the microwave.
I'll be showing you that in the next day or so.
For those in the areas hit by snow,
