    Not yet, been busy on another project gluing up some birch to turn a wooden globe for a neighbor. It hasnt helped to be fighting a cold as well. I hope to get back on the coring next week.

    Look at the ripped out fibers on the bowl I was coring out, butternut is stringy like a cheap steak!

    Did you get any paint where it belonged"

    What Ive been told you can take it all outside and spray while the wood and paint are still warm then take it all back inside to cure. Dont know how cold that routine will handle though.

    Might need to go looking for an old cargo container and convert it to a kiln.

    Latest round of lathe work

    I’d be glad to. Its not far from an area my wife and I like to camp, just need to improve the mattress in the popup so it doesnt kill our backs. Thats about the prettiest piece of countryside Ive seen in a long time.

    Yeah it was a good 17” across. Took it down to about 16” getting it round.

    Latest round of lathe work

    I went out to visit Spanky last monday and came home with a truck bed full of bowl turning wood with a promise of making him some nice bowls from it. Most turners know the raw wood cant be used right away but needs roughng out to get it to dry quicker. I was working on that last week, got three of the chunks rounded and cored and in the bags to dry. Had to put it on pause to work on a job for the neighbor making birthday presents for a son. I got a black walnut offcut roughed and cored out a second bowl from the inside, and got three bowls cored each from a butternut and ambrosia maple chunk. That butternut is some stringy stuff!

    Shenanigans on the lathe today

    Ive seen turnings like that down to an 1/8”, most common is 1/4”. This is my first so Im taking baby steps with thick walls.

    It wound up being a lot taller because I was using 3/4” tall segments instead of the 1/2” specified in the plans I drew up. Final size 7 3/4” tall and 12” wide. 1/2” thick walls.

    Next step, glue on the solid top ring. Then turn the inside, then the outside.
