    Default Olive wood handles

    I've been working nights the past 2 days which leaves the house empty for me to do what I please while the kids are at school and my wife is teaching. I've been trying to make good use of my time by watching all of the Star Wars movies...... and turning some brush handles.

    I completed the last 2 of the Olive wood brushes that will be heading out to Serbia. The wood came from a gentleman's front yard, which he harvested, dried for 10 years, and then sent to me. I turned him and his friends some handles, and I keep the rest of the wood. Nice little trade.

    Man oh man do I love the smell of this stuff when you start cutting into it!!

    Saturday my wife and I went and saw Rogue one..... Great movie. Gives A New Hope so much more depth. Sunday, I watched A new Hope, Monday I watched The Empire Strikes back, and Yesterday I watched Return of the Jedi. i'm about to start The Force Awakens right now.
