Off topic

I know this blog is supposed to be about quilts and quilting, but I have to share this.

Shug has seriously been doing woodworking for a long time now. There is not a room in our house without some custom & hand-crafted thing: clocks, boxes, bookcases, tables, stools, shelves. He is very handy to have around!
He has been talking about turning wood for a year or more and last May found a great deal on a used lathe -- which has sat in the garage ever since because he didn't have the proper voltage or wattage or whatever to plug it in. Well, this week he had the electrician out and was finally able to plug in the lathe. There were 2 rather crude first tries, but his third attempt was pretty darn good.

Yay Shug!
