It is absolutely beautiful outside today and I'm going to treat myself to an hour or two in the wood shop a little later today.
But for the meantime good news. First: I got a set of pin jaws for the 4 jaw wood chuck for the lathe. This all means that I'll be able to create small diameter turnings a little easier. Here is a photo:
I am really jazzed about this!!
And I got a new shipment of turning blanks this afternoon and one of the blanks is going to be the next Blue House bowl. This year I'll be making the bowl out of a solid block of Indian rosewood. Here are a couple of photos of the blank:
This bowl will be approximately 11-11 3/4 inches in diameter and about 4 inches high. It will make a great salad bowl or fruit bowl for some lucky guy or gal. I will keep you informed as to its progress over the coming months and let you know when you can purchase a raffle ticket. So join me on the journey and lets make a great bowl for a great cause.
See ya later,
