DEMO

Jake Debski showed many different gouges with different grinds and then showed the use of same in turning 2 bowls. Thank you Jake for sharing this with us. I here also, that you initiated Paul Carver, a new member by throwing a mahogany bowl from the lathe in his direction to check his reflexes.

 

ELMER’S CORNER:

Here’s one I found in this month’s Wood magazine: Simple and sticky patterns.

For those of you that who use small patterns for different projects such as scroll sawing ornament and such. Instead of dealing with messy spray adhesive or time consuming tracing to transfer patterns to the wood, use all-in –one printer to copy and print the patterns onto 81/2 X 11 inch adhesive label sheets (Avery #8165, 800-462-8379, avery,com) then just cut out the patterns and stick them onto the wood. Quick & easy.
