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.

Then he walked to his two bogus old growth trees. (The visitors don't need to know this area was once a desert and the red pines are a recent invader).
He found an escaped oak tree so he checked security on the rest of the little oak trees in the oak daycare center area and they were OK.

According to Nobel'swill, the Peace Prize should be awarded "to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."

A backup bowl? Well you have to call it something. This bowl (only one of them for both the gallery and the doublewide markets) came from a tree knocked down by the guy who delivered the ten cords (now cut up and split thank heavens) last winter. TWW cut the downed tree up and made the crude bowl above from that red pine. It has one coat of walnut oil on it. Perhaps poly would be better but then some people would not want to use it for their cereal in the morning.
