I've not turned much the last few years, ok I've turned nothing the last few years.

My son is wanting to turn after taking a class at the Folk School last summer. I've gotten the garage set up more and dust collector set up so that we can turn some. I worked with him Saturday, since we are starting to wind down the soccer season. I'm proud of how well he listened and the bowl turned out.

Hoping the weather holds and we can get some more turning in this spring before the summer heat drives us out of the garage.

Don't let the heat drive you away. Get a large floor fan and direct it towards the lathe and the vacuum scoop. It will cool you both and help push the fine dust towards the scoop.

yeah i had a large floor fan for years it was too loud and my garage is too messy for it to be anything but a projectile launcher.

i'm happy to share time on the machines with him. beats video games any day of the year.
