  1. Here is an excellent and very affordable opportunity to brush elbows with a master in craftsmanship and chat about techniques and mastery in woodworking. The event is today, at 4pm Pacific time. You will be online via Zoom Meetings and interacting with Mike Johnson, woodworker for the Sam Maloof Foundation. The Sam Maloof Foundation is having a rough time folks, since Covid they have been shut down, they depend on visitors to the compound for sales and funding of the Maloof Foundation. So help them keep it live, donate what you can as your fee to be in on the Zoom Meeting with
  2. Nice guy Rusty, good connections are hard to find, remember him around Christmas with a box of See's Candy. Very cool wood!
  3. Cliff, it's all in the terminology as usual. Hosting is provided by a company that provides space on their servers. Invision does not host our community, we simply use their proprietary software. We are hosted by A2 Hosting Company as you'll see by plugging in our domain name into that field at your website you linked. Here is also a great place to start if you want to know what a website is built with. I know you weren't asking about what a website is built with, but just thought I'd throw it in there too.

  4. Well, got a government day off this Monday, MLK day, so a long weekend it is! Not sure what I'll do but it will involve Mrs. Morris telling me just what that is.

  6. Random picked participant coming soon, and a new one will be created this weekend, sorry guys.
  7. Ya, me too! Just went through the whole project this morning and loved it! Actually, this topic made me late for work, gotta get! Thanks Steve for letting us follow along, that chest is going to last a few generations I'd say!
  8. You know I've seen funnier things, like a woman standing out in the middle of the dessert 1300 feet from the nearest road and persons, wearing a mask. Guess she didn't want to infect the Fringed Toed Lizard, they are a protected species out here.

    Nice table Dave, can you tell us what the wood species is? And perhaps finish used? Thanks!

  11. I have not read the article yet, but I can guess what's in it, I will read it though. I have come to the opinion that finishing is so varied and conditional, that really, it's like telling someone how to hold a glass while drinking water from it, or perhaps, a better comparison, religion and politics, sometimes I feel that discussing finishes can be just as fruitless.
  12. That's a neat website Steven, thanks for sharing that! May have to pull the trigger on a nice looking cap!
  13. Gerald, you are doing well at 4 months of back log, you should see mine, at two years! Love the start you got going there, I am very interested what the final design looks like.
  14. I had an inkling that was the case, but just in case I thought I'd put out the quality control call, for some constructive crtiques. I have plenty of those "just for me" projects Andrew, I get it!
  15. Nice Andrew! Glad you love the lathe, and that is spectacular first bowl on it too, I was just curious if any of the veteran wood turners here have any advice for Andrew on how to avoid or fix those pesky lines on the inside of the bowl? I'd like to know too.
  16. It's completely sad Al, one is too many, if the world were perfect, this would never happen, but we can thank China for unleashing this bio mess upon our earth, they should pay a hefty price but they never do. This isn't the first time, and it won't be the last they do this, accidental or not, I'll leave that up for another discussion on some political forum. Just to put some of it in perspective, I don't even know if that's the right word "perspective", it's becoming harder to choose my words wisely while commenting on this mess without being seen as some cold hearted overly pragm
