I’ve been working on a few small projects. Wine toppers, knife handles, and such. I also got a new toy… a Nova G3 chuck! So here’s my first attempt at a rough bowl. I’ve got it in a paper bag now to dry out and I plan on doing a bunch more so that in 6 months or so I’ll have a nice rotation. Anyway… Here’s the pics!

-- Why waste the money buying it, when I can spend twice as much on new tools, a week online researching new techniques, and a month building it.

How do you like the chuck? I picked one up at Woodcraft during the 50% off sale with all the extra jaws. Haven’t had a chance to use it yet. Also picked up a Sorby 3/8” long handle bowl gouge.

BTW: Did you clean all the cosmoline (protective grease coating) off of it, inside and out before using it? Seems like if you leave any on it will attract a lot of dust.

So far I really like it, but it’s my first chuck, so I don’t really have anything to compare it to. I wiped down the majority of the oil with paper towels. Nothing crazy, but clean enough that it stopped slipping out of my hands every time I touched it.
