    A Little christmas-y turning

    just some turned icicle kinda things... cherry, maple and walnut, I still need to get some eyelets and put some rattle can lacquer on them, but hey, at least I'm turning Something



    my work laptop crashed, so no phancy photoshopping, plus the new Canon doesn't have a flash, so available light photo with a $3600 camera and no editing. (I'm so ashamed).

    Good to see you're getting some shop time there Ned. Those should look nice in your tree.

    Thanks guys,
    I've been in a bit of a funk for awhile, it was good to get out there and make something again. I also 'finished' my lathe stand, got it situated for better lighting and got the lathe 'installled' on it.

    Couple of things I've 'discovered' thanks to this though...
    1) I want to pick up or make a new set of jaws so I can clamp the piece in my chuck without risking my fingers as much.
    2) I need to build a rack to hold my gouges and what not. I had them scattered all over the shop by the time I was done, resting on my TS, Planer, Drill press and the lathe stand.
    3) I really like my venerable set of carbon steel spindle gouges.
    4) Insulation is my friend, I need to finish that part of the shop better and get the solar project finished.
