Today I visited with JockMike2. As always it was a blast. He told me that he had a piece of elm for me to turn. So we began the process to turn a goblet. I learned a few things in turning my 1st goblet. The main thing to do is make sure you have a perfectly round piece before shaping. 2. A forstner bit is sharp as well as hot after drilling. (Duh). All in all it was another fun day at Mike’s school of woodturning. Looking forward to his inspection of my shop next week. Will post pics when I get some batteries for my camera.
