It pays to procrastinate
« on: September 14, 2008, 03:44:41 PM »
Well, I had a piece of birch log laying around since January or February.  Forgot about it for a while and yesterday i thought I'd cut it up for some good wooden plane blanks.  Well, i think the pictures are self explanatory.  6 bowl blanks, two big plane blanks and pens blanks and some pieces that might make Christmas ornaments.

Nicely Done! :) :)

Good looking spalt.  Ever get sinus or lung problems from turning it?  I am very careful after the last couple of bouts.

Post a pic of your bowl when it gets done!

No chris, spalted wood doesnt bother me.  Basswood is the worst for me though, makes my sinuses go insane.  I gotta get a lathe big enough for bowl turning first, hopefully before the New Year.  But Ill post pics for sure.

 When it comes time to split my firewood pile, I usually end up with two piles.  One for firewood and the other for te lathe. :)
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

metalspinner, I do the same think, or at least imagine it. :D I still remember burning almost a whole log of curly maple last year :( That was before my lathe though.
