We break for lunch at the gracious & gorgeous home of Maggie & Zack. They’re related to Alan and have put on a great spread for us. Alan’s wife, Eva, made delicious blueberry cobbler and homemade cookies.
Maggie and Zack’s home is a 3-story cabin built from logs from an early 1800’s home. I love the history in these mountains. It’s been a nice respite before we jump into turning bowls.
Alan is a great teacher. Chips were definitely flying! And in the end, we have a beautiful bowl.
Learned a ton today and really think I’m going to add a wood lathe to the shop arsenal.
The kicker tonight was, we wrapped really late and a snowstorm moved in. Roads were covered in ice & snow – a half-hour drive turned into an hour back to the hotel – cars were dropping off the side of the road like crazy. Up and down the mountain roads – pretty dangerous. I’m grateful to have 4-Wheel drive on the F-150, we used it all night. Ended up at The Local for dinner at 11pm…another late night!
