Hello. Just joined this site last night and thought I’d post a couple of projects just completed.
The chess set is done in curly maple and cocobolo rosewood. All the pieces were done one at a time (no duplicator yet)! I estimate about 100hrs total. I purchased a Steel City granite lathe and not knowing much about them, I think I made a good choice.
I have been retired for about a year and a half and after traveling to Alaska in our motorhome all summer, I wondered what could occupy my winter months…. so I started a woodworking shop and have had a blast all winter.
I live in east central Ohio and not far from Keim Lumber Co. I have become a Keim addict! A wonderfull place to shop (and spend $$)
The lamp is an arts and crafts design that I found in a book Purchased at Keim.
Bye for now.
