  1. Hello everyone. I have started a campaign in order to earn enough money to purchase my own wood lathe. My membership where I currently turn is about to expire and I am not sure if I will be able to afford another membership. So please consider purchasing one or two of these shirts and by all means, please tell all of your friends. http://teespring.com/rodney-s-wood-lathe-campaign
  2. Hello Everyone, Wouldn't you know it! My luck never seems to change. When I am having a difficult time just paying my rent, I find this on Craig's List. I guess my luck will just never change. http://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/tls/4782399114.html Wood lathe - $165 (Casa Grande) Jet wood lathe. 18inch by 10inch. Great condition.

    Sanding stage

    This is actually not my lathe John. I can not afford a lathe of my own. I have only been turning for three months and I go to TechShop, an innovation center, so I can turn. I just recently purchased a set of Craftsman chisels on eBay for $31. So as for now, that is all I have of my own.

    Arizona Ash

    Hello everyone. I just turned the largest bowl I have done to date last night. This bowl is 13" in diameter and 4.5" deep. The wood is Arizona Ash from what I can tell by the bark.
