My kids have been teasing me about being a Yuppie. Seems the older that I get the more gadgets I want. I just bought an I-Pod and a Kindle. I decided that I needed a place to store the power cords so that my wife would not beat me for leaving them on the counter (she doesn’t really beat me).
Canister made on my Ringmaster and finished on my Lathe. I cut the 8 rings from Maple and Paduak, then glued them up and put them on my Lathe to sand and apply a finish. I used Shellawax for the finish. One thing that I hate about the Ringmaster projects is that you are dealing with end grain and long grain. Makes getting a good finish on the project tough. I turned the little Finial on the top on my Lathe, but actually I feel that I made it a little small. Wish I was a great Turner, like some of you guys.
Cutting the rings is really relaxing. I’ve had my Ringmaster for several years now and had forgotten how relaxing it was to work with it.
