Dear Diary, His Majesty seems most put out. My latest trial has still produced no Gold, indeed nothing but a muddy sludge. I can not understand my failures. My source for Vitreolium insists on its purity, and my Aqua Fortis and Cinnabar are beyond reproach. Could it be the effects of Saturn being in retrograde? Or the influence of an unknown ether? I have commissioned a new mixing crucible, which is precisely runed and ruled. If it can't bring my Lead to its golden conclusion soon, loss of patronage will be the least of my worries.

Keith Gotschall is a furniture designer/maker and woodturner. He also spends time teaching and demonstrating. His work ranges from the multiples of production to the one-offs of the artistic; from garden dibbles to the purely sculptural. Known for his traditional technique and crisp details, he is always trying to loosen up and have some fun. Keith lives in Colorado, at the base of the Divide; near a bridge, down by the river.
