A Hole in One

This is an idea for drilling holes straight, through irregular shaped objects. ( I am using one if my raven whistles as an example here.

 Lining up the holes when you are drilling from both sides of a bead can be a challenge. My solution is to drill one side part way and stick a pin in the hole. This allows me to see exactly where the hole is on the first side when I start the hole on the other side. When the two holes get close to the centre of the object, the pin falls out and the two holes match up..

Bowl 51

So the Equinox is on us. Our glorious summer has past and it is time to get real and back to the rain that is our natural condition here in the south west corner of Canada. I am not complaining. I have webbed feet like all of the indigenous fauna.

So with more ado. Green bowls for our greening before what winter we may have.

Almost Autumn Equilibrium - Bowl 50

What happened to the summer? August disappeared entirely into haze on production, market sales, traveling and visiting. I am just not organized enough to blog when something interesting enough to blog about happens . Now that the equinox is approaching I am hoping to get a little balance into my life.

I will start with a little bowling.

This months challenge is to learn to use Instagram. Yes I am living in the dark ages before the instant upload and such but I am hoping to fix that. The phone may be smart but the description does not necessarily extend to the user.
