    I had a visitor today...

    My buddy Kyle showed up with a nice little Cherry log that he got from a friend, he wanted it cut up so he can make some bowls.....




    Nice little cherry log.


    First we cut it into shorter pieces with the electric chainsaw



    Then we put Big Blue to work


    OK now it is time to make them roundish on the bandsaw




    Cover the endgrain with some PVA glue and we are good to go.


    Nice little bit of work, Kyle should get some nice bowls out of these 8 blanks.

    Cheers!

    It was a great time. Stu you are a great teacher. Effortlessly pretending I know more about wood turning than I know. Now, I got to go and make his confidence in me come true. Thanks Stu. I am really jacked and looking forward to the challenge.

    Yes, knees are outstanding, although I clink when I walk, it seems to be everything else that is falling apart.

    Looks like a great day.
    Must've been tricky getting that down the ship's ladder.
