I think I read a post lately that asked if people wouldn’t mind spacing out their posts to avoid bumping others immediately off the front page. I try and do that anyways in the hopes I get looked at more often, always the narcissist. I find it time consuming to post as well and tend to do it a bunch at once, waiting for the blue moon.
Still addicted to the lathe, another little bowl out of maple. It’s an old piece of wood, cracks open up whenever it’s cut. The bowl lip exposed some, but they seemed stable so I ignored them and got lucky. They haven’t moved at all. I think I need some super glue or some epoxy on hand when working with this. Being new to this, is supper glues benefit just being instant so it can be used on the lathe? I would imagine epoxy is stronger and gap fills better, but would require a day off the lathe? Any articles on the web on how to do this properly and when?
Anyways, this was given, like all my bowls so far, away for Christmas. Sorry to see them go, but what would I do with them anyways. This one went to a friends mother that was up for a holiday visit. She’s in her nineties and as usual, none of us could keep up with her. Hardier stock in those days I guess.
Mom and Dad in Ontario have been asking me to see what’s up and out of the shop…. so here they are, bowls bowls bowls. More posts to come.
