    Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. Calvin Coolidge

  1. A few times, in fact, I'm expecting a new 200 grit CBN wheel for my Tormek to deliver Friday. I've always felt they had fair prices and they have always shipped very quickly.
  2. I did a video a few years ago on doing two piece tops if that will work for you. If not, let me know and I'll snap some pictures in the few days.
  3. Thanks to all!! Dan, I turn them with the point away from the head stock keeping the tail stock up until they are nearly complete. I hold them with a 1/2" tenon in a Beall collet chuck. I like the Beall because it's completely smooth and doesn't tend to bite.
  4. A while back I started sizing my ornaments blanks to have enough of a cutoff to use for the body of a two piece top. One piece tops waste a lot of material but two piece ones are just the opposite and provide a way to use up cutoffs and small spindle scraps. Add to that, they are quick and fun to do while building skills. I will probably make 30 or 40 of these before I'm done. Everybody loves a spin top.
  5. You and me too, biggest reason I don't do resin!!
  6. Nicely done Rusty! Pretty grain, what wood?
  7. Cannot tell you how many times I've visited that page, some truly amazing work there.
  8. I wish I'd said that!! Good one.
  9. You are so right, when I was refinishing furniture I couldn't walk into a furniture store or department without feeling the finish, looking for runs or sags, etc. etc. From my years as a carpenter I still check out drop ceilings to see if the borders are the same, eyeball door frames and corners to check for plumb and so forth and so on.
  10. I've been thinking of getting a CBN wheel for my Tormek but that boring head looks like a great tool to have around....hmmm
  11. Really nice work Dan! Beautiful.
  12. I have really gotten a bad taste in my mouth about TV and Hollywood in general so if I'm home alone the TV is off. If I lived alone I'm not even sure I would own one. Most of the "reality" shows are an insult to my intelligence as far as I'm concerned. Every situation is contrived, enhanced, or staged for the sake of drama. Of the fixer upper shows I agree that hometown is better than most and the wife is a cutie! Another one that isn't too bad, can't remember the name but it's a mother/daughter team reclaiming rundown homes in Indianapolis.
  13. Wife likes a show on HGTV called hometown. I don't really watch TV but I glanced up to see the star turning a large table top outboard. He was using an EWT rougher I think.
  14. OH, I misunderstood, thought you'd gotten it. That is a bummer.
