|Thread: Shabby TV cabinet|
This is lovely ! I assume that the shabby bit is the distressing of the paintwork. A good reminder though to always keep the battery charged when you take the camera with you. Julian
|Thread: Yandles spring show 2014|
Hi Simon -- Like you, I spent a long time looking at this work and the amount of detail that she went into. There was a lot of interest while I was there so I hope she has had some good feedback from the show. Julian
|Thread: You may have wondered|
Hi Derek -- Nice lathe, they seem to be very popular so you should be very happy with it. I can't remember who it was now but it was suggested on one of our demo days that if you are turning a large item on a 1MT spindle to put a dummy 1MT shaft into the headstock just to give it a little extra strength. One of the lads up at the club has one and the shaft broke on him after a few months, Record replaced it by return so very good service from them. No problems since it has to be said. -- Julian
|Thread: Shabby TV cabinet|
That's looking really good and up to your usual high standard but can I just ask why the AWO if it's going to be painted ? -- Julian
|Thread: Hello anyone there?|
Hi Ron / Derek -- I was thinking the same thing but I suppose as guilty as anyone just viewing and not posting.
|Thread: hollow form|
Hi Dennis - You have done this vase credit as I don't think the Big Brother is the easiest of hollowing tools to get on with. I would be interested to hear how you found it and what gap you ended up using to stop the thing clogging up also how wet was the wood ? as I understand that it works better on wet end grain wood to dry wood. - Julian
|Thread: rocking horse|
How good is that Sam ! I am sure she will love it. Julian
|Thread: closed segment turning demo|
Hi Dennis - Good luck with the prep work, we haven't seen much segmented work as late so will look forward to it. I am sure the guys at the club will enjoy the demo when it happens the last one was excellent. Julian
|Thread: lathe not turning "round"|
Hi Mark, a 5mm throw is quite lot on something like this. As has been said by Derek and Eric the bearings are the most likely cause and not uncommon either. Do you get the vibration when there is no stock mounted on the lathe ?
|Thread: Hello to all|
Hi Joo and welcome from me also, as Ian says we do try and help each other out when we can. Hope you enjoy what you are doing I think that's the important thing, my wife has got used to the rustic look around the house
|Thread: What,s In Store|
Well firstly thank you all for your wishes and secondly I apologise if I sounded down hearted because I don't think I really am ! Having only another 4 years to go till retirement I will probably get there early and enjoy the Baking Hot Summer that is in store for us. I do really need to get into the workshop a bit more and develop my woodturning skills (or lack of them) so I think the new lathe is going to get a bit of a battering. Julian
Happy New Year to you as well Derek, I don't know what's in store for me this year, Certainly more time in the workshop as a Redundancy notice arrived for me on the weekend, at least they waited till after Christmas.
|Thread: Happy New Year|
Hi -- Just thought I would wish everybody a Happy New Year for tomorrow night and if your having a party, have a great one. Julian
Hi Mike and welcome to the forum. If you have access to a copy of Woodturning Magazine there is a conversion table from 3/64th to 56" in old money and the other way in new money, you will find after a while of using metric that it comes second nature. Regards -- Julian
|Thread: oak bowl|
Hi Dennis -- I like the fineness of this bowl if there is such a word, does the photograph show a slight undercut below the rim ? Very elegant indeed and I am glad you were able to sort out the lathe. It's always pleasing when you fix a problem like that. Happy Christmas -- Julian
|Thread: We wish you all a Merry Christmas|
Good to see everyone is still very busy, A very Happy Christmas and New Year to everybody on the forum and to those that just observe and learn from the input of others. Have a good Break Steven and thanks for your efforts since you joined us. -- Julian
|Thread: christmas decorations|
Hi Dennis - These are very interesting pieces and food for thought as I think we are all going to be doing some of these over the next few weeks. I was talking to a few of the lads at the club about it and it has been suggested (although I haven't tried it yet ) that the lower finial could be made from the offcut of an acrylic pen blank to avid the cost of the former. Colwyn Way from Axminster is going to be visiting the club in November with some suggestions for decorations as well so there should be plenty of ideas floating around.
|Thread: Cherry cabinets|
Hi Mailee -- You seem to be getting the hang of this cabinet making lark. They do look rather stunning though I must say, I think Cherry is a great wood for cabinet work. - Julian

|Thread: finished at last|
Hi Ian - You are obviously a very accomplished turner as those chess pieces are very nicely turned with nice crisp edges on the fillets and good form on the coves and beads, I also like the pawns you have copied them really well. I always find getting two the same difficult letalone 16 ! -- Well Done
|Thread: I don't normally|
Hi Derek -- Yes keep up the experimenting there is some very nice work coming out in this piece. The reason I mention Mark is because I went to see him demonstrate a month or so ago and he was using a lot of material other than wood to mount his work on. things like slate that have been polished and waxed and it really emphasizes the work.
