    Default An assortment of magnificent WA timbers

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen
    This has kept me reasonably busy lately. 6 x Sierra, 6 bolt action, 6 x Baron II. Timbers are, Red Morrell, sheoak, rib fruited mallee, curly York gum, curly jarrah and York gum burl. I have just turned 52 pens in the last week, was looking forward to flashing up the big lathe, but alas, another 24 pens are ordered.

    Cheers

    Magnificent collection!!!

    The worst part of having more pens on order - you have no time for procrastinating on the ideas you want to try....

    The best part about having pens on order - you don't have to think up excuses for procrastinating on the ideas you want to try.

    But having seem your threads on your shed and setup, you don't suffer from either of these problems.

    I'm sure you'll get time to get to your big lathe, and when you do you'll have a bit more cash to spend without feeling guilty about it!!

    Cheers

    Wow; just imagine the results if you combined your turning skills with Queensland timbers!

    What, I have that now, just Google 'Willie Nelson'. As for Queenland timbers, okay send em over.

    I do still have some Dead Finish and Budgeroo from Neil (Dai Sensai) who was kind enough to share it with me, they are stunning.

    Great collection there Willy

    All that stuff I brought back from WA is still sitting on the pallet where I left it. Mind you, in the past 4 years I've only been home for ~6 months, and those were spent fixing my gear from travelling .
