I am a sweaty mess. It's humid in the basement and with my turning smock and face shield on, I really work up a sweat. This morning I rough turned a spalted ambrosia maple bowl. It's in the tub of alcohol soaking now. Then this afternoon I took out two loads of shavings from the basement, including one bin full of walnut that I dumped on a corner of the yard to see if it kills the weeds. That gave me some working space free of shavings so I grabbed one of the mulberry blanks I rough turned last weekend. It was actually dry and ready for finish turning from what I can tell. It was the one that had a crack when I started, and there's a tiny crack left in the bottom so I just put some glue on it and we'll see if it holds.

The turning is all finished and has a lovely bark edge, but now I need to sand it. Ugh. A messy task when I'm sweaty already. Maybe I'll work on it tonight. It would be nice to have it ready for show and tell at next week's turning club meeting.

I have about 20 minutes of work I need to do today. True to my personal style, I'm waiting until the last minute.

There was quite a shocking revelation at the end of yesterday's Dr. Who. I can't wait to see what happens next week.

Ok, enough procrastinating for now. Time to get cleaned up and start some laundry.
