A nice looking bowl.
I do like a natural edged bowl, when I can get the right piece of timber for one that is

|Thread: Itching to do something|
I have not been in the shed for over a week and must get back out there again. But I know what you mean about reading books or magazines as they keep giving me ideas as well. The problem being is deciding which project to make next
|Thread: Bandsaw boxes|
Very nice boxes, love the spalted one the best.
Just a small thing that I do when I make boxes like this is that I put two small stripes of wood under the draw part which helps lift the draw slightly so it sits central in the cut out just makes it look that little bit better.
|Thread: Christmas woodwork|
Good idea David. May I suggest that when you get the glass insert that you drill a hole in the base to accept it that way they have to put the tea light in a set position and not be able to put it close to the back piece.
|Thread: How many characters?|
I am not aware of any restrictions Ron and have know posts in excess of the 215 Characters maybe one of the knowledgeable on this subject will have the answer
|Thread: Beech Hollow Form|
Just finished this one today made from Beech and measures 5" X 4". I had the pyrography machine last November as a Birthday present and have not used it that much, so it was a learning curve for me not just in its use but making my own curly wire shape.
|Thread: Marking Gauge|
If it works that is the main thing David. I have one with a blade that I use all the time
|Thread: Chestnut Burr|
I oiled it with at least three coats until I had an even coverage then left to harden for 24 hours before applying wax.
What oil did you use
Thank you Robin.
After making the half track I needed to do something simple so I have just finished this bowl made from Chestnut burr and measures 9" X 4 1/2" Finished with a food safe oil/Mineral oil and then woodwax 22 paste and hand buffed.
|Thread: Half track|
Thank you Robin
They are from a solid piece of wood and cut on a scrollsaw and then sanded on a drum sander.

I have not posted much in the way of any woodworking/woodturning as I have been occupied with this little build. I do not keep a record of how long it takes but all I do know is that there are a load of bits that required making some on the small size.
|Thread: Acorn Smoothing Plane|
I did pick up a 071 router plane in mint condition with all the cutters, fence and boxed still with the original grease paper it was wrapped in but minus the instructions for nothing on freecycle
Looking forward to seeing how it cleans up. Not sure about price as I tend to pick up planes for £5.00 and in a box just at the right place at the right time, all I need to find now is either a Clifton or LN for £5.00 OK that is pure fantasy that last bit.
|Thread: painted hollow fortm|
That was Dennis that made this piece Ged. I agree it is a nice piece, having seen this elsewhere I have already commented on it.
|Thread: brass fixtures|
Have a look HERE on page 4 and scroll down
Or even HERE

|Thread: Air Filter|
