Lots of retirees take on new hobbies. Women frequently take up needlework, jewelry making, and lapidary. I look at the work they do, and a lot is beautiful. But I don't know what I'd do with the stuff I make. Without kids or grandkids, I have to pawn stuff off on friends and neighbors. So, I wanted a hobby making useful things that don't scream "God, Robbin really is OLD."
Happily, a few years ago a friend introduced me to making bowls on a wood lathe. It's a perfect fit and I've become an addict. Here are some projects from earlier this year.
