    Almost started fire with CA glue

    Hopefully you guys know this or can at least explain to me why. Anyway I was glueing the tubes in some pen blanks the other day and just happened to have an old cotton rag on on my assembly table and quite a few drops landed on the rag. I'd say within 10 seconds the rag was smoldering white...

    started carving wet

    I took the barley twist I started at my class with the Woodwright school and started carving a snake that has a marble trail in it: It is largely complete; a marble rolls down and stops and I have set in around the head, which I will do in shallow relief. It is poplar and it was freshly cut...

    tools to get started, charlotte nc questions

    Hey everyone, I've had this little urge to start carving wood and it's been growing for the past couple of months. I'm not particularly artistic, but woodcarving seems like it would be a lot of fun and relax my mind. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions about which tools to get...

    Getting Started

    Hey everyone, I have a question that I feel fairly stupid asking, but...Here goes... I am interested in getting into turning pens. I know very little about it and I'm not exactly sure what I need to get started. I currently have a lathe, some turning tools, and an ebony pen blank (don't ask)...

    I started out with 2

    bandsaw boxes, that is. I was to the point of sanding the inside and outside of the outsides and insides. Amazingly :eek:, I dropped one of the drawers and one of the boxes during the process. Ah yes, coming inside with more pieces than I took outside. Of course, the remaining drawer does not...

    Turned another cigar pen and started a Classic American

    I turned another cigar pen and started a Classic American in acrylic yesterday. I like how the cigar pen came out. I havent finished the Classic yet and not sure I will be doing anymore acrylics. Just dont think paying $4+ for a plastic blank is worth the effort. I will wait until I complete...

    This is what I started off with

    I was looking through CL and came upon this - I started off with the same one and still have it - If I remember correctly I paid somewhere between $70-$90 for it about 20 years ago at Lowes - pinned blades and single speed - I thought that it was the bomb:gar-La; I use it now for the pinned...

    peg turning started

    I jumped in and took a whack at one to experiment: That's soft maple, which is an experiment in itself; I was going to use strictly hard but soft will probably be fine for gut or hair strung instruments. It is still in progress; I was primarily working on shop reorg (yeah, still, but I am...
