ETW Newsletter - December 2022

ETW Newsletter - November 2022
Ah, finally a change to the season! Or is it? 33 degrees one day and a 90 degree high four days later! From heavy sweatshirt to shorts and barefoot. If you don’t like the weather in East Texas, wait five minutes ...
ETW Newsletter - October 2022
Hello Woodturners! Autumn is finally arrived, and I am more than ready for cooler weather! It’s the time of year that I just want to be outside. Limber up the fly rod and put me in a river, and then just leave me alone. Especially if it’s cold and rainy when other anglers are in the den watching football, I’m wading thigh deep and roll casting into the shallows. I find that the more miserable you are, the happier the trout are....

ETW Newsletter - July 2022
Welcome to July Woodturners! (also known as “Hell’s Waiting Room”)I hope you enjoyed the Fourth of July Holiday weekend. It was certainly hotter than a firecracker, and the a/c in my shop just couldn’t keep up. 100 degree+ temperatures on a metal clad building makes it feel like an easy-bake oven. The good news is it makes finishes dry faster. (every cloud…) ....
ETW Newsletter - June 2022
Hello Woodturners! Well June is busting out all over and my wife’s gardens are just hitting their full stride. I wish my turnings could match their depth, breadth and beauty, but I think my lathe would have to be MUCH larger, and the operator more skilled than he will become in this lifetime. But, you just have to keep trying to be better today than you were yesterday. It’s all about growth ....
ETW Newsletter - May 2022
Hello Woodturners! The month of May in the Lone Star State is certainly a mixed bag for weather. From the mid 40’s to the high 90’s, sunny to stormy to dangerous in the space of a deep breath, or a long sigh, if you don’t like the weather here, then wait five minutes. Friends in the Azalea District may spend months ge�ng their homes and lives back together, and folks in Gilmer and other areas lost a lot of trees, some well over 100 years old. There, but for the grace of God…
