It's a nice bowl, it's just a shame that all that pretty red is going to go brown in time.

It's already brown. No shame that''s just that facts of life, even brownish it still adds character and interest to the piece.

No arguement at all. I was just pointing out the unfortunate fact of the wood.

On my birthday, Lee Valley sent me the rest of my Father's Day present my youngest son got me:

I use these sanding grips on almost every project and manage to lose one each time. I need to make a box to hold them. Maybe a French insert will remind me to put them away.

Then on the 26th, maybe for Christmas in July, I get the zero clearance inserts I ordered on sale. I have been using one of these for the past three years. I really like this insert. It fits well and lasted years. It is just now getting a bit loose in the blade kerf.

I did get my sheet sandpaper from klingspor but will refrain from posting pictures so as to not create any sanding envy.

Thank you, I sometimes get breathless when I see sandpaper.  Oddly it's for a different reason.

What's that ugly thing the bit is laying on?

Nice score Coop and I’m sure they will serve you well, you may want to give those sawhorses back to Noah in case he needs to build another Ark :D let us know how you like that Whiteside bit always wanted one that size

I just almost would give up beer before I would the sawhorses. A customer that builds stainless restaurant equipment built them for me about 30 years ago. They use them in their manufacturing. They are made of 1 1/2” angle iron and I used them with a 4x4 across them and a come along to remove a cemented fence post last week.

I applaud your efforts and your do the right thing effort.  But at this point this is on Walmart, and you know what they say.  You can't fix stupid.

I prefer the old school holdfast that Gramercy make. They're super quick to use and have tremendous holding power. And there's nothing to ever wear out or malfunction.

Except of course the operator of said hold fast.  Don't ask me how I know.   I'm worn out, and now frequently malfunction.  But they are excellent hold fasts.

The UPS guy showed up again. This time is was for the sanding mesh rolls I ordered back in May. At least they got here! I have been wanting to try this for sanding turnings. I got the solid sandpaper rolls and they clog almost instantly. I experimented with a sample I got and it worked pretty well. Maybe this will do the trick.

I like mesh abrasive for turning, too.  It's just easier to clean the sawdust off with a finger flick.   I use the 3" rounds that Woodturners Wonders sells.
