  2. Looks good steeldrifter, here is my start with bonsai. I bought the one and then grew the other two from cuttings from the first, but cant remember what it was any ideas. I want to say its a ficus but not sure. Any way your garden looks awesome thanks for sharing
  3. I like that reel seat, do you drill your first or after turning I want to do one for a bamboo fly rod I’m working on. Also where did you get the reel seat parts from
  4. The bowl is black locusts burl and the top was some wood from Cuba or some place like that, someone gave it to me so I used it. I got one more price I want to use for a real seat on a bamboo fly rod I’m trying to make. I like stuff you did that wine glass is cool, my wife will probably want me to make one lol The wine glass is an inside out turning. Concept is quite simple (youtube it). I purchased a wine glass from Wallie World (.99), cut the stem off and fit it to the top of the stem.. I used gel epoxy to attach it. I use some 5 min. Devcon epoxy, thinned 50/50 with Acetone. this works great to make it water resistant. Spray finish with Spar Urethane. Curious how the Black Locus was to turn. I've been told it is very hard. I'm looking for some to try. I have a few dozen near my house, unfortunately they are all healthy. The black locusts burl was not to bad to turn, but it was rough cutting it with a chainsaw, where I live there is a house that has like 4 trees that are massive and like 200 years old and full of burls, and during a wind storm damaged one so my buddy and I asked if we could cut some up. The couple that lived their were so happy to see it not go to waste, so we both made them a bowl and I still got a few big burls left
  5. Old sewing machine desk Nothing special but it works

  7. Nice work ! I've turned a few lidded box projects myself. I think a favorite from those who see them are mushrooms I turned from apple wood ( I have apple, locust, silver birch, white oak on my property in numbers that either shed branches in storms, get cut down etc). The mushroom cap lifts off. But I'm really getting into the niche of Christmas ornament turning. Besides the wood I have I'll look in the woods for downed trees or branches and get some poplar or maple. I have pine and cherry also in my basement... I turn no exotic woods, not when I have free wood drying right here. I also have turned candle sticks/holders from locust. May your tools be eternal sharp ! I like making acorns out of my scraps for Christmas ornaments using real acorn caps
  8. No they are wood Stars and Stripes and the fish also, they were inlay kits that I get and then glue them in then turn on the lathe together to shape and size for the style pen I am doing
  9. Just some stuff I turned, just wondering if anyone else is into turning
  10. They look great and a good cause. Also thank you for your service to all Veterans and first responders
  11. I know this is and old thread, but iv been trying to get on the rod building form and it says that all FTF members already have an account but I type in my name and pass, but it says it’s wrong. So I tried to create a new account but it says it’s not taking any new members. So what do I need to do to get an account on that form anyone have any ideas. Thanks
  12. I use sharpies and clear coat for foam bodies
  13. It's bone so it is hard but sometimes the inner part is softer, it can splinter if you put to much pressure when coming out the other side when drilling, it also stinks a bit if it gets hot when drilling or cutting, but not to bad to work with. This price was a shed that a friend found in Maine when I was up their visiting
  14. Got bored made this to hold my tools lol
