    My two unique woods are beautiful, twisty, cracky Eucalyptus (right) and softer, simpler, stable Avocado (left).
  2. Is a Grizzly 698 or 733 Lathe smoother than a Delta 46-460?

    I love smooth. I love a machine that is quiet and kind. I love to listen to tool-on-wood noises uninterrupted by motor screams.

    And so I really enjoy working on my Delta 46-460. As long as I don't...

    I agree about the thickness of the stem. I have to choose whether I am going for design only or for practical use as a communion cup. Those little chalices in the background are designed for years of...

    Segmented Chalice

    I tried this design from "wood goblets.com"

    The design worked but there is a bad glue line on the other side of the cup. I glued up the second one with a different clamping technique.

    Thom, good idea on the rope. I used knotted rope to hold on the handles on mugs for Renaissance Faire.

    I shortened the top and rounded off the bottom. It's closer to what I want. I was also...

    Here's a first try at a shape. I think the bottom should be a lot fatter and the spout a bit shorter. I think it might work to wrap with rope or sisal instead of a handle. I could also shape the top...

    Thank you, Thom.

    I also saw a photo of a pitcher with no handle. A slanted to took care of the "spout" and the narrow part of the vessel was wrapped with rope or twine.
  11. Turning a pitcher - How do I fit the handle

    I just got a request for bowls and pitchers - symbolic so any size is ok.

    I can picture the pitcher as a flared form with a slant on the top. I can't figure out how to manage the attachment of the...

    There is probably some self-selecting going on. This may be the average of those who subscribe who also took the time to fill out the survey and are pretty excited about how much they spent last year.

  16. Here's why I should always keep my chainsaw chains sharp

    My sister send this photo of an olive tree stump to be ground up later today. She was good enough to get two trunk pieces for me, a little over a foot each dimension. I would consider driving an hour...

    I need a pencil compass recommendation

    My pencil compass is way too flimsy. What do you have that holds a good position and is a decent cost?

    There is a delightful irony that you love the smooth and quiet lathe - and drive a Harley.

    Yes, Robert, the 1-3/4" is a real measurement.

    My first try at grabbing the corners failed. Probably because of the length of the piece - 8" including the gripped portion. I'll try that again, and...

    Oops! Wood is too small for the chuck.

    I am about to make a whole lot of traveling communion sets. These include small chalices that can be made from 8/4 stock. The problem is, after buying the 8/4 stock, I realized I have 50mm (just...

    Well I picked up some nice maple and some poplar to try.
    8/4 maple was $4.85/bf.
    8/4 poplar was $2.78.
    8/4 walnut would have been over $10 / bf so I passed on the walnut.

    So I have what I...
