Karl's Photo Blog 

Welcome to my photographic journey.  I'll be posting a blog entry with a new photo each day for 2018. Check back each day.
I first started a photo of the day project in 2012.  Tried it again in 2013 and 2015.  Giving it another go in 2018.

Another bowl off the lathe. This is a pretty little figured maple bowl. Finished with a friction polish shellac wax. Perfect for jelly beans. Or loose change, or what nots. Yes, what nots will be placed in it!

Sunset on the SAS campus at the site of the new SAS Building A. Opening early in 2019, the exterior is complete and the interior is coming along. At 9 stories, it is the tallest building on campus. It will house the office tower you see here, and a education, conference center, and cafe to the right.

My outside bunny posed this morning for the Wabbit Wednesday photo shoot. She was in the yard when I rolled the trash container up to the street this morning. She didn't like the sound of the wheels rolling, but after that she was happy enough to pose for a few photos. Good bunny!

Visited the gardens outside of the Page Walker art center this evening. Very pretty. I like this one in Black and White. Also spent some time at a small fountain in the garden area. Interesting evening.

Today was banana pudding flavor of the day at Gooseberry's frozen custard. Mix in Reese's peanut butter cups and you have an Elvis. It was yummy. Lots of people getting custard today!

188/365 New addition to the shop

Stopped by Woodcraft today, and got a good deal on the bandsaw I've been looking at. Decided to go for it. Had to rework the shop a bit to fit it in. I like the new layout. I'm getting a good selection of Rikon tools - Band saw, lathe, dust collector and grinder. On the lathe is some pretty wood - it is pink! It is an 'economy' blank so I don't know for sure what species it is... but I know what it will become!

Had to get a new cell phone. A couple weeks ago I ended up putting my 20 month old Pixel in the washing machine. It still works, but it isn't right. I don't know how long it will last. So time for a new one. I decided to try a mid range cell phone instead of a flagship model. The moto G6 is highly rated. Also not water proof, so I'll need to keep it out of the washing machine!

Unfortunately,
LT Fleming Antiques shop was closed by the time I got there this evening. Looks to be stuffed floor to ceiling with 'Antiques'. I certainly post more photos when I go back. Be patient, it might take me a very long time to make it back there... a VERY LONG TIME.

Here are three blanks for future wood turning projects. 2x2x12 curly cherry for a long stem goblet, 3x3x8 cherry for something, and finally a 8x8x3 pecan blank for a larger bowl. Can't wait to see what is hidden in these blocks of wood. I'll share photos when I turn them into treasure!

I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

That was 1970. Now he does landscaping in Cary. Whatever makes you happy!
