I am apparently taking a break from my huge photo-heavy posts of late. I frequently have a lot of downtime at work, but not today! Today in the woodshop we have Stan Cook of Mestari Designs, giving the guys (students, experienced woodworkers, and board members alike!) a quick and dirty lesson on how to make gorgeous pieces using a lathe. I say dirty because, I mean, just look at poor Colt's arm in the photo above. There's sawdust everywhere! But the results will definitely be worth it, as you can tell by looking at some of the pieces for sale on the Mestari website.
