Thread: I'm putting the cart before the horse....

  1. #1

    I'm putting the cart before the horse....

    I think I'm suppose to get the lathe first and then start building my tool collection.....but, in my case I had gone to a great demonstration on Robert Sorby tools and that day they were offering a really good discount, soooooo I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to buy my first chisels and then some. It will be awhile before I actually have a place to set-up shop but in the mean time I'm learning alot from places like this board and some others plus for a birthday present I recieved two really good DVD's: "Turned Bowls Made Easy" by Bill Grumbine (I just finished watching this one, it was very good) and "Beyond The Basic Bowl" also by Bill Grumbine (that's for tomorrows watching). So the pics are of my first set of chisels and for that matter tools overall. I have to give a great big thanks to my buddy, Grizz for sharpening them, and for him and Ned for taking the pics. Unfortunately this isn't my shop (it's Grizz's), I wish I had all those tools and space....

    Wow, from what I can see in the pics it sure looks like you're set up in the chisel department, Joan. Way to go.

    We need Grizz and Ned to figure out how to post bigger pics. Here's a tutorial as a refresher.

    Thanks Ned, didn't realize they would come out so small. I'm reading the tutorial now, thanks Vaughn. It's not the WHOLE catalog...hehehe. There's still all the shapeing tools and the curved ones for bowls and..........well it is a really good start.

    uh oh , Grizz you've got her hooked!

    Joan, you're most welcome. I couldn't see them and I KNEW what was in the images. Oh, and by the way; I'm sending you a few pen blanks with the big guy the next time I stop up to his place (likely next weekend)
