    Larry' wood

    A while ago, Larry sent me two pieces of Box Elder. The rule was that I was supposed to turn at least one of them WET! Someone asked that I do a picture show of the event. Here it is. Forget #1, got there by mistake.

    #2 - drill hole for screw chuck. I find it holds the blank very well.

    #3 - There is RED in there.

    #4 - Screw chuck in position to receive blank.

    #5 - Blank installed.

    #6 - Tail stock added for security.

    #7 - Roughing the outside. OH YEAH! There is RED in there!!!

    #8 and 9 - Nice chips, but a little wet!

    #10 - Outside roughed out.

    To be continued: More pictures.
