Boxelder

i been off too much time from the blog, sorry about that..
i turned a lot of wood, but i don't know how to take good pictures and my english suck..
a lot happened, some good and some bad, i lost my job and lately i can't sell any of my turning pieces....i mean nobody care that much.
Italian are going into hard time for a lot of reason which i don't want to explain in this blog, and here it seemed to me people are not interested anymore in my turning works.
i have to send my wife and my boy to granparents and selling my home,
good news is we have found a way to survive at least...and i hope after we will have sold the home,
we could have a new start.
thing is we can't find a courage to move outside this country...
by the way here some pictures:
