Jewlery Box lid support - 6 replies

I had to use butt hinges on a jewelry box. To get the lid to stop a little past 90 degrees I thought I could use a piece of costume jewelry chain, I bought a rather hefty chain that is relatively hard to pull apart by hand, but as soon as I attach it to support the lip of the box is snaps immediately.

What would you do with this piece of Big Leaf Maple Burl? - 5 replies

I have not worked with Burl before so I am trying to decide what to make with this piece. It measures 10×10 and is about 6 inches in height at its highest point. My thoughts at this point are to either turn a bowl, make a band saw or a regular box. This piece is rather small so I will be pretty much committed after my first cut. Any rec...

Sharpening a midi hollow master - 2 replies

I recently purchased a Sorby Midi Hollow Master turning tool and it worked great until it needed sharpening. I have had little success sharpening the hollowing tip with a flat sharpening stone. I have tried various stone grades, but have not been able to get the tip anywhere near as sharp as it was right out of the box. Any suggestions?
