TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

One ball down

The sun is out. It's a one ball down day (so the LP furnace does not need to burn fossil fuels to cause global warming) and the brush pile in the valley is burned (brush does not cause CO2 when you burn it). Life is wonderful.

Bowl blank cutting stand

Two floor flanges connected by a pipe on an old trailer stand.

Top floor flange screwed to a log cut in half.


Bowl blank after some trimming to make it a little rounder.

New winter life enrichment activity disovered

When there is not enough snow to snowshoe and you run out of wood to turn, then there is something else you can do to enrich your life.

Make a list of all of the places on the 'Net where you need to logon. Next add your logon IDs and passwords to the list. Next try to figure out how to get the logon IDs or passwords you cannot remember. Then test each of the logons to see how many you can get to work. This activity is not the life enrichment part. When you have the list done they you can logon with ease anywhere you want to go and that is the life enrichment part. The hard part then becomes where to store the list so the burglars don't find it.

When life gets boring make desem

This is the desem starter mixed with flour and salt before the first (cold) rising . After 4 hours you do a warmer second rising (95 degrees) with the pans in a plastic bag sprayed with water on the inside.




When the oven cooled down to about 225 degrees C you put the pans in the stone oven.


This time we could cut the bred with a bread knife. TWWT's teeth did not hurt when he ate some of this bread like with the first two attempts to make desem.
