A selfie of me with a Bizarro cartoon of a cat taking a selfie while about to eat a mouse who is also taking a selfie. It’s selfies all the way down.

In November 2009 I took some private instruction on the lathe from local wood turner Larry Cluchey. I started a bowl from green wood that day, then sealed it up and put it away for "a few months" to wait for it to dry. Today I dug it out and finished it. I don’t recall what type of wood this is, but it would have been something from his property, nothing exotic.
I made a couple more of these tiny wee bowls today. About three inches across, the one on the left is purpleheart sandwiched by zebrawood, the one on the right is zebrawood sandwiched by lacewood.
Here are the two I made a few days ago:

This is a pair of small rolling pins made from hard maple with prominent zebrawood accents. I made these as a custom order — the dimensions are as per the customer’s specs, about 10 inches long by about 2 inches diameter for the larger one, a bit less for the smaller one. The tapered one is a so-called "French rolling pin". Both are intended to be used one-handed.
