    Help needed!

    So, Mr. OP, to help us all to get on the same page without making a phone call, what price range would get us interested, say using your pic and and using walnut as the material? Heck, I may want to retire early !

    Gary, not being a turner, what do the pieces of blue tape represent in the first pic. Bowl looks fantastic!

    That looks darn cool so far. Looks like I’m going to learn a whole new game, no pun intended.

    I’m easily fooled and very gullible. That’s not the true color is it?
  8. Thanks bud. I’m whacking up lumber now for Brock’s take on the lowback and bought Marc’s sculptured rocker guild build and thought one more visual wouldn’t hurt. Sorry for the sidetrack Blue!

    That would be my first choice for sure, the curly cherry, next. You got time to dry it and load it on AAA before Dave can snow plow his way to the highway.

    I’d darn sure be there! At my age, I might slow down a bit after the first 10 hours though.

    @RIW, I see a little ocd in that first pic but I guess it’s always best to start level !

    Non toxic glue

    Valerie, what kind of finish are you planning to use on the basswood? As much or more of a concern than the glue. +3 on the TB 3.

    Mine started moving in last week. In fact 4 pair have already made deposits but luckily I got it cleaned up before others arrived

    Thanks Dave. Very simple construction. The first time I met Rickey while visiting Richard and Linda, he gave me a tour of his estate and sent home with me, a small piece of the curly maple that would fit in my suitcase. It was kind of like the folks in the mall passing out free food, knowing that I wouldn't be able to resist buying a truck load later. Because of the shape and small size, I had to resaw the piece and piece meal it into a workable size. The lining, outside corner splines and top were from available walnut. The small lift pull was purchased from Horton Brasses. Finish is three coats of ARS glossy per my wife's instructions.

    chess board top cracking

    Not questioning any of you, especially Steve as he has given me some wonderful advice, well hell, you all have for that matter but just wondering. How can surfacing both sides of a piece of 3/4” ply help stabilize it? That’s so thick, one side will never know the other side is there. Talking stability and not looks.

    You'd be in a pickle if you bought that lumber

    Man, that stuff looks great. What’s up with the three middle boards in the first pic?

    I ain’t about to tell you what I paid for “prime” walnut today. The first log is great looking but I’ve gotta have some of the second one. Sooner or later I’ll be priced out of walnut construction unless I can start flipping some. When is the second log coming out? Hopefully before I retire .
