The secret to making a small fortune in woodturning is to start with a large fortune.:D

Just as Richard Branson famously said the best way to become a millionaire is to start as a billionaire, and then purchase an airline.

Yep, I would have to agree with Tex... UGLY. In fact it's so ugly it's almost attractive.

Unfortunately the TURNER is not the one who profited from the sale.

There ain't no money in poetry and that's what sets the poet free and I've had all the freedom I can stand. Guy Clark. Cold Dog Soup. Read turning.
