Christmas is less than 2 months away. We have the opportunity to make this Christmas special for our Gold Star Christmas Family. Please head over to this page and give what your heart suggests. Sure, you might win a fantastic prize from our most generous sponsors. But, really, the winners will be those kids on Christmas morning when they see there really is a Santa.

@HandyDan found a couple of really nice videos. The first one is about a young turner. The kid has skills-

 

The second one is on a neat way to "turn" a sphere on the lathe. It appears to work well but it does require a special setup-
