Still using up some scrap wood. This was a fun little turning and it is helping me get used to some of my new tools. Seems I have forgotten how to use my other tools to werk boards since I got the lathe. Whoever said it was addicting was right.

Dewayne nice goblet, I know what you mean about the other tools It seems likes when I got my new scroll saw all I wanted to do was scroll saw work. But it’s amazing it’s just like riding the old bike trick you never forget you just get rusty using the other tools keep those goblets turning.

I love to turn things. I must have made 100’s of Hickory shot glasses. Nice job

Nice work Dewayne. Turning is habit forming.

Thanks for the comments.

Gene I have come to that conclusion. Just about have to be sawdust or shavings to get out of the shop as trash. I saw something interesting the other day where a feller was mixing sawdust with wax and pressing it into blocks for fire starters. Many diff ways to use wood for sure.

Phil when you start turning don’t start out with anything in mind and let the piece turn itself. All you gotta do is take off what don’t belong. Most of the time that is what I do. One of my projects had 8 pegs in it. That is probably the only time I set out to turn more than one thing just alike. They still weren’t just alike. Just put some wood on and go.

Hunter did ya test them all. Haaa Haaa
