  1. More ornaments

    Steve, I admire your work very much. Can you suggest a tutorial on how to turn these? Thanks Jim
  2. Club demo

    Seriously beautiful work... what skill you have.
  3. Carbide turning tools

    well..... in my opinion.....
  4. Live near Lexington, KY?

    Yeah.. had a great turnout. There was a steady flow of people all day long. Free burgers on the grill didn't hurt! ;O)

    So we had a really great day at the Woodcraft in Lexington. It was beautiful outside, 72 and sunny... they set us up in the classroom so we were able to keep the side doors open and let sunshine and fresh air in all day, really nice. I turned this cherry plate. I wish I had spent more time on sanding and finishing (as you can see) but during a demonstration, watching someone sand is like watching paint dry. Still, it was a good little project. My cohort Thomas turned a green piece of olive which came out great. Sorry no pics of this, it's tucked away in brown paper bags to be finished in a month or so. The best part was my son turned up unexpectedly and I was able to get him to try his hand at turning. First time ever, and in front of a dozen people watching... I couldn't stop him! It was great to see him really enjoying his first turning experience. He is calling it his "Game of Thrones" goblet. He really had fun with it. Perfect day.

  7. Live near Lexington, KY?

    That's all I needed to hear! Portillos is one thing Lexington is sorely missing!

    Do any of you out there live near Lexington, KY? If so, this weekend (Saturday the 14th) I will be at the local Woodcraft store all day for their Demo Days / Sale. It would be great if you want to stop by and say hello. Yes, I will be turning... but certainly not a very impressive demonstration, other than the performance of our great tools. I will have tee-shirts, ball caps and other EWT "swag" to give away. It should be a really fun day with several other live demonstrations going on, including a forge set-up out in the parking lot. Will Atwood, the store manager is quite an accomplished turner and some of his pieces are always on display. Come by and say hello, I would really enjoy meeting you.
  11. What's your favorite Spur drive?

    Thank you all for the feedback... I have a great job. I get to play with tools and think about which tool I want next! ....and then... they pay me to do this! Thanks Jim
  12. What's your favorite Spur drive?

    Thanks! Learn something every day!
  13. What's your favorite Spur drive?

    So the center point is spring loaded.... why is that a good thing? What does that do for you?
  14. What's your favorite Spur drive?

    Survey question of the day! What is your favorite style of spur drive? I've probably seen a dozen different variations.... two prong, four prong, round with no prongs! All types out there.... IF I were to suggest we develop a spur drive to mount in our Easy Chuck... what style should it be? I'm not that smart, so pictures help... a lot! :0) GO!
