I thought I’d like to start making gifts for the family and decided to make some bowls. Reading through a bunch of articles on using a router (because I have no lathe), I bought a few blanks and started my journey. I realized I really need a store closer to my house that’s dedicated to woodworking. Home Depot really doesn’t carry a whole lot of options to work with. I’ve decided to save up some money and buy a lathe. My arms and shoulders are absolutely exhausted from sanding. That’s all I can say about that.
