    Been a good day. At a turning retreat I. Kingsville, about 2-1/2 hours south of San Antonio. I'm learning a lot, the biggest thing I've learned is that I really suck at turning and have a LOT more to learn.

    We’re visiting our daughter in the D.C. area this weekend and spent yesterday afternoon at the National Gallery of Art. Our main focus was on the famous Kaufman collection of furniture that is composed of American furniture made along the East Coast from Baltimore to Boston in the 1750-1830 period. If you can make it to Washington, this collection is well worth seeing. There is a good review of the collection on their website. It is a permanent donation to the museum so no hurry and admission is free.

    Thanks for posting. Amazing what they did during that period of history.

    Did you know, if you try to get a good look underneath, they try to give you a lifetime ban?

    Today was entertaining.
    Had a phone conversation with a guy, had a heck of a time understanding his accent. Kept calling me yankee...

    Then a fun game to watch.

    I've not tried but I know if you get within 36 inches of a piece, an automated voice tells you to back away. They have it well guarded as it's worth millions. I attended a show at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City in 2005 that focused on the furniture of John Townsend and his shop in Newport, RI. The show's book I bought shows the insides and underneath photos of many of his shop's pieces. It's the best show catalog/book I've ever seen.

    It's been slow for me. Finally caught up with the sleep hehe. I have been AFK for a while, sorry about that. Been busy around the house and the garden, side jobs and as a area representative. But I'm back! :haggle:

    After I got off work I went to my storage bay with 3 bikes that I completed for sale. Did a little organising.
    20190321_171821.jpg
    And I stashed this one away, my newest bike for my collection. A 1950 Schwinn Excelsior, very cool all original bike except for the tires, came with some vintage baskets which I removed and will resell. I want to keep this bike as original as I can. It has what's called a sweetheart front chain ring and it's of a skip tooth design, runs a special chain. This thing is so fun to ride around on. 50s schwinns are seriously well made. This bike rides like a dream especially for a 69 year old bike. Super happy with this find. 20190318_164930.jpg 20190318_164936.jpg 20190318_164951.jpg 20190318_165001.jpg 20190318_165010.jpg 20190318_192330.jpg
    It's got some rust in a few places but I'm not going to repaint it at this time, keeping it all original actually holds its value. Bikes made today wont look as good or last as long after 69 years. I'm very happy to have this one in my collection.

    Pretty crappy today. Got home from work yesterday evening and ate supper. Went out to the shed and decided to turn a small bowl. Got it finished and came in and got ready for bed. Well about 2am, woke up itching REALLY bad. Went to the bathroom and turned the light on. Whole upper body covered in a rash and welts. Took a couple of benadryl, took another shower and tried to get back to sleep. Benadryl didn't help and it was getting worse. Went to ER and got steroids and stuff for itching. It was a piece of maple and I've turned from this same piece before so I don't know if it was it or something else. Never had a reaction to any wood.
