  1. I was eyeing this guy for a while. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GRDR7SZ?pf_rd_r=JV63CK8X4SHN04K82VRY&pf_rd_p=edaba0ee-c2fe-4124-9f5d-b31d6b1bfbee Variable speed could be pretty handy.

  2. I have a belt/disk combo, and the Rigid belt/spindle combo. Mostly, I use the Rigid, works for must things. For shaping wood, a coarse disk is nice. For steel, I'd want a vertical strip sander of some sort, although the belt on my belt/disk combo can be positioned vertically, and will do in a pinch.

  3. Pics! I suspect a shellac finish though which doesnt play well with stuff like Lysol.

  5. Seems to be pretty strong. If your cookies are without pith they should dry with minimal to no cracks and not too much warp. Its the pith and nearby circular grain thats the killer. Remember turning end grain you direct you gouge in the opposite direction you would with side grain forms to get the clean cuts.

  6. I had some end grain slabs the neighbor had cut trying to shorten the stump. It was so big I could get pieces with no pith and pretty straight grain patterns. This dish I managed to make pretty thin and delicate.

  7. It's nice wood to work with. IMO the quarter sawn is worth the additional $. The flat sawn really soaks up the finish. I don't remember what I paid for it, but it was reasonable - in the $4.50 - 5.50 range.
