Hi derek I've never tried this colouring technique I know Nick Agars into it. Maybe you'd like to write a Forum note on how to do it I would be interested My late wife would have had my guts though she firmly believed that wood had its own beauty with the assistance of paint.

Hi Mike I agree with a lot of what you say I have every issue of Woodsmith Mag and I have all the back issues of Shop Notes on disc Fine Woodworking aswell. Woodsmith and shop notes are both aimed ant the garden shed woodworkers like many of us. Have you bought any of the Wood SmithDVDs they are now up to series 9 and are excellent value for money. A word ofcaution if you do purchase any, they can take an age to arrive.YOurs Ged Meager

I've been a fan and subscriber for many years. What I've always liked is the fact that Good Woodworking has something for everybody whether amature professional Chippy cabinet maker Woodturner etc Iam aturner personally. What I would like to see in the woodturning articles in particular are pictures of the piece of wood the turner starts out with particularly if its some sort of nobly holey hollow form.Quite often I've looked at a finished piece and wondered what did that piece of wood look like before he started

Thread: what am I doing wrong
08/07/2016 02:55:03

Why do I get fine lineswhen I'm using friction polish.

Iusuallysand down to between 320/400/even600 grit when finishing commissions and spindle work.Quite often after a few coats of friction polish I notice I've built up a number of polish ring lines around my work instead of a dead  smooth finish It drives me crazy how can I stop this from happening . Any tips would be much appreciated

I did my first ever british craft fair this weekend and took just under 50 quid for just under 4 hours selling. It seems that most people only come out with about 5-10 pounds to these small vilage craft events What i was suprised about was the amount of stall holders who bought their stocks in and didn´t actually make much at all I think such people should be excluded otherwise these events just become markets or carboots.would like to have sold more but who can second guese the general public

Thread: Bandsaw Motor
12/11/2015 10:05:30

As I've been a keen woodturner for many years. Back in2003 I treated myself to a very large Startrite 351E bandsaw Which has given me many years good service without problems However a few weeks ago it started to play up and wouldn't start after asking around several fellow woodworkers most thought it likely to be the capacitor so I contact the company who now sell Startrite spares and talked to their engineer who after giving him all the signs and symtoms of the problem advised me to find a Motor rewinding company Which I did in Yeovil Somerset they took the motor and all its componants to pieces and informed me that I needed a new capacitor the motor needed rewinding and I needed a new circuit board this little lot was going to cost me best part of 400 notes or a new bandsaw which would probably be 2.5K as I'm a disabled pensioner I did a bit of shopping around on line and found a company out in the sticks who sold me a better motor with up to date switching gear THEY CHECKED all the motor details to ensure it was the correct power etc and checked the Flange to make sure the new motor fitted without a hitch Which it did and all for just 100 quid +vat I now have a sweet running bandsaw. What a saving and a most customer friendly people I've dealt with thoughout this saga I have no connection to the new motor supplier but would be more than happy to give his details to anybody with a similar problem. He sells on line and is very carefull to make sure you get the right replacement. I hope this helps

Good luck Gerry I had a major stroke 10 years ago and I'm sure all my woodturning has helped me get more use out of my left hand which was totally paralised unfortunately the stroked severely effected my design skills as so much o my brain was damaged Not that there was a lot of it to start with just keep on turning and be patient it does get better but it does take time good luck.

Does any body use the PayPal portable card reader to allow people to pay for their goods at craft fairs

20/08/2015 09:25:58

I recently returned to the uk to live after 10 years of living in Spain. To try and get my hobby to pay for itself I 've decided to enter a craft fair in November as a woodturner. In Spain it was mostly the brits who bought turned stuff as the Spaniards think all woods for burning. Normally I sell my stuff privately to friends and relatives I'm always happy if I've covered the costs of materials etc I know the professionals will moan at this but I want to keep my turning and cabinet making a hobby and not have the pressure of business profit and loss etcI do have a number of Galleries around where I live and find their charges quite excessive. Any help on pricing for craft fairs wuld be gratefully received. Ged Meager
