I have finished my 13-week contract at the Santa Fe Opera and head back to North Carolina starting tomorrow. In case you missed it, I’ve been keeping an (almost) daily record of what I have done over on Twitter:
Day 5: Turning a 4'9" champagne bottle out of foam. The size is almost too big for the lathe. #santafeprops pic.twitter.com/cwqgas3Dum

Besides being fun, it acts like a bit of a journal; I can look back to see how long certain projects took. It gives me some reference for when I have to estimate how long future projects will take.
Day 21: The cannon bases are all assembled and I'm attaching details and fake bolts to them now. #santafeprops pic.twitter.com/cPDOgeFBMK

Day 53: Finished my deer hooves; 8 total. I can't wait to be unable to see them on stage. #santafeprops pic.twitter.com/b7ZUCRAIiR

That link may not show every update I made, so you may wish to check out my whole Twitter stream. Of course, you can follow me there so you don’t miss any future shenanigans or experiments that I try.
Day 56: More turning! This is a finial that's going to be molded and cast for some banner poles. #santafeprops pic.twitter.com/ywinfH7lit
