Tailstock Drill (Lever Action)
I was never happy drilling on the lathe.  All that cranking of the tailstock wheel and never enough travel.  I always thought a lever action, like a drill press, would be nice especially when it comes to clearing the chips from the bit and hole.

Swedish Deco Shell to Carve?
I should have some time after this holiday and found this photo that was taken on the Island of Gamla stan in Stockholm, Sweden. My wife and I spent a week's worth of time visiting the Old Town before picking up our car and driving around Sweden/Denmark for 15 days. This shell was on a government building, just as you entered the Old Town from Norrbro street. Good memories!!!

Incredible grain.
Can't remember if I posted it here or not but a local wood cutter dropped off a piece of Norway maple trunk at my house about a month ago. Said he thought it was the kind of wood I like. He has helped me in the past and I have made sure to gift turned items to him for his help.

Kentucke 1784
This is my just started current scrimshaw project. Subject matter happens to be a 1784 Kentucke Territory map. The map is the work of a gentleman named John Filson, and as per the fancy cartouche title it was presented to the Congress but more specifically George Washington. It states "Late" commander of the army so he was no longer an active General but this was also before he was president.........things were just getting going  .

This is some really cool subject matter,...time period couldn't be better. Kentucky wasn't a sate until 1792,....this is still the frontier. We had just licked the red-coats,...kentucky long rifles were still the king,....scrimshawed powder horns were their constant companion,....and when you went to the outhouse you better have one eye out for injuns
