just a little, I promise. Dave, my son who is forever playing in the woodpile is finally being recognized for his work. He will be giving ongoing lessons in this wood working magazine.

We are all very proud! :bg:

Congrats! What nice work he does. Does he live close by? My Dad at 84 also does turning, mostly bowls. I think he gets that mag ~ guess I better find out.

Congratulations, Mary! He seems to be making such gorgeous work. This is art!

In my family it's been the reverse way around - my father is into woodworking, taking after his own father. My mom never took after her mom's sewing passion. My father and I often realize the similarities in our crafts. Another thing that draws us close :bluesmile
