  1. Congrats to everyone!! But always such a good fund raiser to me. Thank you to all the admins and people who make this such a wonderufl and instructive place to escape to!
  2. Gene, Sorry have not been on much. Been battling with a few things. But here are a few of the projects I recently was able to do. The cane is made for my veteran Uncle who needs one from time to time. The green things on it are leaves. I could not quite get a good picture of them. Not sure what type of wood the bottom is. It is very light and I am thinking I used popular. The top is wild cherry that I made on the lathe. The cane was basically a remake from an old walking staff I had made for him a very long time ago. Florence flooded his house. It was 4foot deep. this was the last thing I needed to recondition for him. But he asked for it to be changed into a cane. A pirate birdhouse for my feathered friends. The two swings were made from recycled wood from an old dock that florence was kind enough to demolish. I don'tt know how to tag people on here so hope you see this. Lissa
  3. All good from storm. Safe and sound.

  4. So basically starts out as 2x4?? But shrinks?? Probably didn't understand correctly my mind has been kinda messed lately
  5. So saw a post on how wood sizes have changed over years. Was this strictly about money on. Companies behalf or was there more to it. Example why a 2x4 is not a 2x4.
  6. So that pretty cedar bowl I turned, my first one, got a healthy crack in it after I applied many coats of beeswax to it.. IT has been a number or of weeks since it was made. Can You all explain to me why this would happen so I can prevent it in the future? What did I do wrong? I do plan on just adding some epoxy or resin to seal it up but i am a bit sad that it happened.
  7. So pine resin is messy. Honestly not sure I will use it again. But due to determination I will finish experimental cup with it just to see how things work out. It is difficult to get smooth coating as it can not be brushed on in any manner and hardens quickly. Just posting my findings. Still stuck on if there is anything on market that can do both hot and cold beverages. There seems to be a product but sellers will not give up their secret..
  8. Gerald can you share the link or whatever you were reading? I don't know how to tag people

  10. Thanks for tagging me! That is extremely cool!!!
  11. Small patch have to sand one but been put burner for current experiment .
  12. Thank you for all the input. I do drink on is needle tea regularly now. It helps me from getting so sick from colds which usually turn into pneumonia. Pine needle tea has been great for me health wise and is one of the highest vitamin c levels there is including the good ole oj. My system can't fight them like others do. That being said I suppose I have gotten used to the taste. I am pretty sure the epoxy will work as well, but hey nothing tried nothing learned. I turned a little mug to test it on and all I can say is we will see how it turns out. A friend of mine has a mug sealed with brewers pitch and though he has had it a while there is no smell or taste.. I will post what I can as far as follow ups. The brewers pitch can withstand both hot and cold which what we were searching for. We will see. I do value all the input and will save in case experiment becomes a big flop lol.
  13. So a while back I asked the question, "what can seal turned mugs that is good to use for both hot and cold beverages?" After quite a bit of research and asking around, I think I have found the answer. You guys feel free to correct me if I am wrong g or sharing wrong information. The answer actually came by a person who turns mugs for renfairs (probably didn't spell that right.) He said "Brewer's Pitch" I did more research to see if this was correct and everything I found said it was. ( we are talking about internet so... please feel free to correct me. I ordered a pound worth of this stuff from the specific site which was about 30 dollars. Turns out it is basically pine resin/pitch. So now being me I am thinking self can't you just make your own as I am surrounded by pines. Lol maybe i will. I am all for learning new things especially things that our ancestors practiced.
  14. Lol yup big screen tv!!! I so jelly
