I like the box. I have some maple drying to make one. Very nice work.

I like the one from Rockler that goes across your shoulders. I need a new one since mine is over 15 years old.

What I do is go through the magazines and cut out the articles I want to keep and put them in a binder. Then I toss the magazine. When you think about it you only keep a few articles so you may fill ...

Very nice and the contrast in woods is great. I like the ash one since the grain really pops.

A heat gun also works good too. Don’t use it close to a window pane.

Just to confirm you have the wood in front of the fence for each cut? My sled is on the left side and I don’t have this issue. Mine just fall off between the sled and fence. I set the fence with a spa...

I like them. It’s a great idea. If you haven’t done so try doing some glue ups. I use a combo of maple, tiger wood, blood wood and walnut. Ex, blood wood in the middle with walnut then tiger wood the...

Post: RE: Butternut

At that price it may be worth getting some. I use soft maple quite a bit since I can get it for 2 bucks a foot but I have to deal with a bunch of knots. It’s a good shot to get a bunch of light colore...

For turnings that will be held a lot I use gloss wipe on poly off the lathe. For decorative pieces I use Shellwax on the lathe. It’s a nice finish and easy to put on. I am going to try CA glue on a s...

My go to source for “inspiration” is Pinterest. Type in segmented turnings and you will get a ton of ideas. I’ve used the bloodwood-maple combo a lot. Maple may look nice against the dark Koa.
