Hi folks,

I joined ages ago and posted a mallet I’d turned, but haven’t been particularly active in recent times; beyond looking at your inspirational projects, of course.

Yesterday, I spent money on a new tool for my turning and it arrived today. Very speedy service.

I bought this one: and have given it a quick go on some cherry (from a friends garden) which has been drying out in my garage for over a year having been sat in their garden for about the same length of time before that. It’s full of splits, but free wood is free wood!

Once I manage to turn something nice looking, I’ll post up a project

-- It's worth every moment of effort you put in if the kids enjoy it!

I would love to see how these work. Please post some more after you get more acquainted with them. How much did they cost?
