    Moving to Texas...

    After 17 years in NC, my company is transferring me to Austin, Tx. I'm going to miss all the friends and family here, but I felt like the move was necessary. Of course, I'll find a house with space for the lathes. Hopefully, I'll be turning again soon. I'll certainly miss the face to face...

    Looking for burl for turning

    I'm looking for decent sized cherry or maple burl caps. My stock has been depleted over the past few months. These blanks will need to be large enough for 12" to 16" hollow forms. I've checked with my local sources with no luck so far. Thanks for any leads. :thumbs_up

    Tool Gloat/Hot Deal: Delta Midi Lathe

    Packard Woodworks is advertising a pretty good deal on the Delta Midi lathe. Basically, they are throwing in a free stand (~$150 value) with the lathe purchase. I've been eyeing the Delta Midi for a little while, so I bit. Now, I just have to find room in the shop for another lathe... ;)

    Time for a new tool!

    Well, my old Milwaukee right angle drill gave up the ghost. I has served me the past three years, not as a drill, but as a bowl sander. So, I'm in the market for new angle drill/sander. Milwaukee replaced my old model with a new one that many reviewers hate. :confused_ Anybody have good...

    Found a nail today...

    I used my table saw with a nice Freud Fusion blade to find a 16d nail in a big slab of oak. Very effective at finding nails... arggghhhhhhh! :BangHead: I am now the proud owner of a metal detector and a new blade. Nothing like closing the barn door after the cows are out... :no: Big Nail...

    Tiger Pen

    In honor of LSU's wonderful 11-2 season and the Cotton Bowl win, I turned this Purple and Gold pen today. I got the purple and gold blanks from a fellow on another forum. I then sliced them up and reassembled the two colors with epoxy. Lots of fun... :eusa_danc View image in gallery View...

    New use for old rollerblades...

    After fighting the power of centrifugal force for a while, I finally decided to create some support for my hollowform work. I have seen various designs for steady rests that incorporate some way of surrounding the work with a wheeled support. I decided to use a hybrid of the designs I saw and...

    I'm in the process of turning some large salad bowls and I've finally exhausted my supply of thick-wide Walnut lumber. I need something about 4" thick by 10" to 14" wide. I know I'm asking for a tough one. PM if you have something available :icon_thum. Thanks!

    Another celebrity amongst us!

    While flippin' through my new copy of American Woodturner tonight, I noticed that one of our own won a recent turning contest. Don Leydens, woodturnerdon, won the February 2010 AAW website contest with his nicely turned tool handle. Congrats Don! :icon_thum
