I don’t condone drug use but I can understand the addiction because of my addiction to saw dust and glue. It seems that I can’t wait to get out in the shop and create something. Lately it’s been RingMaster bowls since I almost have the machine figured out.
I especially enjoy using aromatic cedar as the color in many of my bowls because it’s so unpredictable regarding streaks and blemishes.

You sure been a busy guy. Your projects are taking on personality of their own. Great stuff.
That is what this disease causes. It makes us work hours for $2.15 an hour and then believe we are making money on stuff.

Beautiful craftsmanship, super great looking bowls. I notice the circular plug in each bowl, curious as to its use, please explain why you use this. Thanks.

Oldtool – all of those bowls were made on the RingMaster http://www.ringmasterlathe.com/index.php
I have to say that I don’t have any stock in the company but I think it’s a REALLY neat addition to my tool collection.
The tool is similar to a lathe with a bunch of exceptions. It took me quite a few hours to get it under control but once I did it’s FUN.
To answer your question, the ‘plug’ is the end of the beginning. That 1/2” hole allows a flat board to be mounted on the RM and then it is cut down. When it’s all over, the hole needs tyo be plugged with a tapered plug from both sides.

Vernon, I just got off the phone with a realator, I’m selling everything I own and moving to Kentucky since the craft wages are so much higher than here in Ohio

Wow Dick, you have certainly got a handle on that Ringmaster :-). You even have a few segmented bowls under your belt. Nice job buddy, I told you it was easy once you got the hang of it – and you have the hang of it.

End of the Beginning? Are you a David Phelps fan too? (referring to your explanation of the 1/2” hole).
