    1st Chip Carving Attempt

    Well I couldn't stand it having missed the last two carving sessions so I just broke down and bought a couple of flexcut knifes and gave it a whirl tonight.

    Chip's mini-lathe for sale posting

    Chip emailed me asking why his lathe was moved to the "member's offerings" forum. As he says "I didn't make it!". There was a re-direct where it was moved out of "found for sale". No harm done, I moved it to member buy/sell. He was just curious as to how it got moved. I told him that I was sure...
