OK guys & gals,
With the 'new year' about to roll around, I'm going to try and change my 'off' time habits, from excercising my TV Remote to making sawdust, including setting up my grinder, midi lathe etc... I'd like to take a try at boxes, and turned christmas tree ornaments, bird houses etc. To that end, I've got a little christmas cash in hand, and would like to invest in either a rougher or a hollowing tool. Shop built is cool (did a search and yet again, I didn't ask the 'right' question) on the rougher and/or the hollowing tool. I didn't find any recent 'I built this' threads with either of those, so...
Can you point me at a 'how to' page or thread for either a rougher or a hollowing tool?
I've got about $150 to spend, and I can get other goodies if I don't spend it all on one turning tool (forstner bits, new jaws for my scroll chuck, etc...).
