    Thank you, sir. I actually did add some resin with a black tint...i wanted to have it look like some of the other black spots on the bowl.

    Red oak

    At first, when the wood was still green, I really didn’t pay to much attention to that crack. But I roughed turned it and bagged it to let it dry for about three months. Then when I took it out to finish turning it I was very surprised. It turned out to make it look pretty nice. Thank you.

    Red oak

    We had to take down an old oak tree in our yard. My son-in-law harvested a lot of the wood for me. Mostly crotch wood, which are a bit small but I only have a Nova Comet II lathe. Anyhow, I rough turned a small crotch and put it into a bag with wood chips. About three months later I took it out and discovered a wide crack...no surprise there. Filled with resin and finished turning it. Sanded to about 12000 grit, hit it with some triple e and the final finish was Aussie oil. It measures about 4 inches across and about 3 inches deep.

    Painting pine

    I’m sure this is an easy problem for the experts to answer. I’m not one to paint wood, but in this case I need to. I’m making a bedside table for my granddaughter. It’s made from (dare I say it....big box store pine). The reason why I used this pine is because she wanted it painted...anyhow. I know I can use something like Binz to keep the knots from bleeding through. I don’t have any, but I do have some shellac. Would that work? Or would you recommend something better.

    Congratulations! That is eggcellant !
  8. Wow! That’s good to know. I did that with a Wen grinder (Drexel knockoff...I’ve always had bad luck with a dreamer for some reason). I check them out for sure. Thank you.
