    Much appreciated, dont know how soon I can make the trip. I still have more bowls to makefor you when they get dry enough.

    Bug holes. Using a vacuum chuck you need to cover any holes to retain the vacuum or the bowl will slip off the chuck. Its only held in place by air pressure.

    It looks like it. I’ll know how good when I get the sanding done and put some danish oil on it. Should pop even more when I buff it some.

    Heres a look at Rickys black walnut bowl so far. Got the inside sanded to 400 grit and danish oiled. The outside I just got sanded to 80. Im thinking a coat of Osmo as a final coat.

    What Lighting Do You Use?

    Thats what I used, changes almost all the flouros in my house out for these dumping the ballasts like you did. Way more light for half the power.

    Hand tool cabinet in maple

    They do make large radius 90 degree connectors, always recommended when using pvc for dust collection. Some of them are not sewer pipe but non metallic electrical conduit made in a more sweeping curve so the wires can be pushed through, though the size of the radius may not match where you want the dust deputy to sit.

    Shenanigans on the lathe today

    She was in on it. She has the bits to finish off the necklace and earrings. As a matter of fact shes wearing it to work today.

    Not yet, still working on it. Needs a lot of sanding, tenon removed and bottom sanded, then a finish put on it.

    Shenanigans on the lathe today

    I made a bracelet, earrings and pendant for my wife this week. The bracelet was three 12 segment rings of cocobolo, bloodwood and kingwood sliced into thinner rings and glued up in a staggered position to create the diagonal pattern. Finished with CA and polished. The other pieces were finished with laquer and made from sections of the same woods.

    chess board top cracking

    Ive made pens from ebony and found the stuff was bad about developing cracks. Maybe it retains moisture for a long time and when its machined it loses moisture faster and cracks from the stresses involved from being glued up in a structure.

    What the heck is a cucumber log? Local name for a species weve heard of before?
