New Month, New Skill

In my quest to learn or do something new each month, March is for... woodturning! I signed up for a Beginning Woodturning class through the Craft Alliance here in St. Louis. Our instructor is Bernard Voss. He's made some pretty cool stuff, so I'm excited to be learning from him.

Our first class was my first time ever to use a lathe, so... it was a bit intimidating at first. But Bernard had us all working away fairly quickly, and it was fun. Our first project? Mushrooms!

Yeah, I know. But you have to start somewhere, right? Besides, I think they're cute.

Today's run: Garmin says 7.5mi in 1:25:15. (5 mi = 57:08; 10K = 1:10:40)
