We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.
Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.
Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.
Thank you for your cooperation.

My name is Brian Longshore or (BigB) and I am 42 years old and a Verteran (US Navy, Electronics Technician USS CHOSIN CG-65 Pearl Harbor Hawaii 97-03). I found and started this passion that is woodturning by accident four years ago while looking thru youtube videos. Ever since then my families lives have been changed in such a positive way by the wonderful experiences and the very many good and talented people in this hobby. My son enjoys turning pens and my daughter turns the occasional small bowl but she mainly loves to wood burn (Pyrography). In a world where so many of the younger generation no longer use their hands or even have access to a wood working hobby I consider myself very fortunate that my kids are interested in creating things by hand. I also absolutely love to teach woodturning to anyone young or old who is interested in trying something new. Occasionally, when we have friends or family over I will put them on the lathe and open their eyes to the world of woodturning and they usually all love it and want to return for more. This is a small album of some of my recent turnings. I hope you like them.
Chess set made for my grandson for Christmas. Board is paduak and birdseye maple. Men are from walnut and cherry/maple. Box is Mahogany. Plans for this set came from Larry Jenkins on the old Wood site. Finished with lacquer.
My gosh Cal, the kids picked this place out, they searched around and found Kimberly Crest Manor. It's a beautiful location in Redlands CA, it's a French Chateau style residence owned by Kimberly Clark Paper Company heiress, when she passed on she left it along with land and orchards to the city of Redlands to use as a non profit.
It was indeed a beautiful venue.
Here is what Wikipedia has to say about the location.
John, I finally did a little research. My Bahco and a newly-acquired (used) Clifton have held burrs really well, while my LN is more difficult for me to consistently burr correctly.
I think it is the steel. Medium-Carbon Steel vs LN's High Carbon Steel. So the Clifton and Bahco may be easier for me to dress, as the steel is a little softer.
For a novice, like me, easier is better. Better still is picking the brains of the older woodworkers.

LN reports their new $25/pair price is probably here to stay. The days of $15/pair, a memory.
The Bahco (Portugal) is currently under $10 delivered: SnapOn 474-150-0.80 Bahco 6-Inch Cabinet Scraper. That includes a handy plastic sleeve. The strong dollar has also dropped the price of brass mini-bar clamps (YAMASUKE Kurashige Tools) from Japan.
If I ever have access to a really powerful and clean hydraulic sheer, I'll likely sacrifice an old Disston saw blade and slice out a dozen in various sizes.
