I attended the American Association of Woodturning symposium in Atlanta this weekend.
I got to meet up with several old friends and meet a few new ones, see several demonstrations by famous and infamous woodturners, see all the new gadgets in the trade show, and ogle all the impressive woodturner talent in the instant gallery.
And to cap it all off, I won this lathe in a drawing at Johannes Michelson’s booth today. You may know him as the hat turner from Vermont.
It’s a Stratos CO-230. It’s got an 20” swing, (I think), and a 27” Center to Center bed (I may have to get an extension if I make any more table legs).
But I’m looking forward to getting it set up in the shop and doing a review on it…
A big thanks to Johannes Michelson and Stratos (or Colt & Riss?).
Anyway… wow. Still excited!
