I love the idea of taking an item that’s to be tossed away and turning it to something useful or pretty. With wood turning and wood carving one log can contain so many hidden gems.
I have recently started wood working as a side hobby. I’m self taught, so I think my progress will be slower then someone in a wood turning class, but I don’t really mind. While I’m learning I’m getting so many benefits. Seeing the wood shavings come off in a ribbon is so peaceful. I love the smell of the wet green wood. Seeing the wood reduce to the shape you see in your mind is enough to make me keep going.
Eventually I’ll get better 😬
