    Met a member yesterday and gave a great saw a new home

    Carl Fisher had a scroll saw in the classified area that caught my eye. He said all it needed was a new home. After an easy drive he was proved right.

    I may have a new least favorite wood

    Today I turned some marble wood. I turned three pieces and on the third one I was FINALLY getting near what I wanted. I was hollowing and a fairly small catch resulted in taking the side out of the piece. Just ground my grits! I've turned marble wood before but never hollowed it. Anyone have any...

    Is there interest in a turning workshop in the Western part of the state

    If I remember correctly several years ago Jeremy had a workshop in the Charlotte area on making pepper mills. I can't recall a lot of details but Charlotte was a bit of a drive and I wound up working the day they scheduled it, couldn't swap shifts, and I wasn't able to make it. I just wanted...
