My wife came in today and asked if I would go do some wood turning on the lathe.

"Ah," I asked, "what do you need? Maybe a new dibber or possibly a rolling pin or a vase? I have Persimmon, Hickory, Mesquite, a little bit of Walnut and a tad of Oak. What would you like?"

"Oh, I don't care. I need about six bags of shavings for the flower beds."
