    Where to buy spindle turning blanks

    Always had great luck with NCWood. Good variety of domestic and exotic.

    Valentine's Vase and flowers

    Nice! Pecan is a hard wood to hollow.

    Lathe and learn!

    Using a sharp bowl gouge with an Irish or Ellsworth grind, you can create a extremely clean finishing cut that requires very little sanding when done. Takes some practice, but safer and cleaner than any other option.

    Coming out of hibernation so to speak

    Good to see hear from you, Scott. I'm a bit of a recluse out here in Texas. Looks like retirement is agreeing with you.

    Welcome to the group, Leon. I had to move in the opposite direction. Loved Hillsborough area, but Austin is ok. Your amongst some great talents and the most helpful woodworkers I've ever known... Good luck with your project.

    Woodturned Christmas Ornaments

    Ornaments are a fun little project. I struggled with scale initially. I was making the globe way too big and the spindle too thick. After a few experiments they slimmed down enough to hang on a tree without breaking a branch :) . Here's the link to an instructable I did a while back. Hope it...

    Need to Buy or Make a Lathe Light!

    I've used the Ikea Jansjo light for years now. I have a couple of them and both had switches that failed. Reworded the switch and all good to go. Still cheaper than most options and work very well once the switch is fixed.

    I may have a new least favorite wood

    I switch to a negative rake on my carbide (Oland) bits. With a good sharp edge the negative rake can chew through the wood and greatly reduce catches on "catchy" wood. But that's jus what works for me...

    Midi Lathe

    I've owned both the Jet and the Delta. You can't go wrong with either. The newer Deltas have some nice features, so I lean in that direction right now.
