  1. When ants attack!

    Will Atwood is the manager of our Woodcraft store here in Lexington, and he is skilled turner. He just sent me this pic of a bowl he just turned from a maple burl that had a nest of carpenter ants feasting on it. I thought you might enjoy seeing this. Well done Will....

  21. Live near Lexington, KY?

    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.
  22. 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)
  23. Live near Lexington, KY?

    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.

    very nice
