2. My fingers have been on this keyboard more

than gently guiding a chisel against a bowl turning at 900 RPM.

Imagine that each one of those bowls is a paper to be graded ... before 10AM Tomorrow.

4. I love to watch the woodturning show on PBS Sunday mornings

at the salon getting a mani/pedi. That's what's on.

5. My proudest accomplishment in Jr High shop

was my "zebra bowl".

Laminated wood, then turned on the lathe, and sanded/varnished (similar to the photo).

My mom happily uses it to this day.
