Well i have my first xmas craft fair on sunday and the list of things to do is mounting up, looking forward to it but have a bit of work to do first, i suppose being made unemployed will aid my progresion.

made a batch of honey dippers to sell and at the end of the batch was getting quicker and quicker so decided to record it, i am in no way a production turner and only ever recived one lesson in turning so i do a lot of things arse ways but thats just how i taught myself… cheers goodnight, goodmorning and goodafternoon.

I’ve never seen any one hold a gouge backward and upside down. Turned out nice though. and fast.

i used a liquid paraffin and bees wax blend basicaly 80% paraffin 20% wax melted together and allow to set.
but before i apply the blend, i heated some liquid parafin and placed the dippers in the ht oil for 2min and then applyied the blend..

liquid paraffin availble at most drug stores :)

That was worth watching! I can’t say that I have ever seen anybody work a gouge that way either. I wish you the best of luck at the show, I know how those things can go.

-- Cheers and God Bless
