Some good stuff.  Actually got on the lathe and finished a wine goblet yesterday.  Finish is not yet done but working on it.  Maybe end of the week..

Good job Lew, that sanding package looks pretty good, unfortunately they just got a nice chunk of change from for a different package they'd offered. If that "dragon" vessel is yours, I'd say it's still a keeper, nice form on it.

Thanks for the great topic Lew. So, who made that vessel, the dragon one?

I like it!

Thanks Lew.  I really like that natural edge lidded box from Carl Jacobson.

@Woodbutcherbynight Thanks! Looking forward to seeing the finished goblet!!

 

@HandyDan Thank You! Those pens are awesome!

 

@Steve Krumanaker Thanks! Yes, that's the rotten elm branch. Gotta be at least a gallon of CA on it and was on and off the lathe countless times. Invested too much time and thought to just chuck it.

 

@John Morris Thank You! That's mine from a rotten elm tree branch that came down this winter.

 

@Jim from Easy Wood Tools Thanks! I think that's a beauty, too!

Good post Lew. I have a Cherry burl and was wondering what I would do with it. Problem solved.

Hey Lew...   BTW, I'll be the guy doing the turning demo all day long.  So if you should stop in I guarantee a friendly handshake, and maybe a tee shirt, but don't expect to learn anything new about turning.  ;o)  My demos are for newbies   haha

I'd LOVE to be there a little bit of a drive for me.

Ah, but to get to see Jim, the beautiful countryside and, a trip down the Bourbon trail. It would be well worth the drive. And, ya only live once.

Finally got to the lathe.  Made a goblet for my friend.  His wife dropped the last one and shattered the glass.  Thinking it could not be repaired she tossed it.  Then told him about it two months later.  Have to get some glasses tomorrow so I can set in place with silicone.
