This is my humble shop, it may not be the best equipped but it does what I need so far.  It is funny that no matter how many tools and machines you have that there is always one more that is needed to ensure that you reach your potential as a wood turner LOL.

Nice size.  One thing I would do is take the grinder out of the corner so you can swing tool handles as you sharpen them.

Thanks guys Smiley

Comet is doing well Doug, need to take lighter cuts as it can be stalled if you try to push it too hard but I am pretty happy with it.  Looking to get the DVR at the end of next year for bigger pieces but the Comet is a good little lathe for pieces that people like around here.

I have plenty of ideas for embellishments to items I turn but the only issue, as Len will tell you, is getting items such as bottles of C.A glue and chemicals for patination sent over here.  I have found a source for Turquoise at $15 for a 1lb bag in the USA which will be good but the obtaining C.A of decent strength and size is an issue here, so is 0.5mm copper wire funnily enough.

I tried the other day to add a copper band using 1mm copper wire found in Cable T.V cables here but the super glue that you can get here just isn't strong enough to hold the wire in place securely (but that could also be the fact that the wire is 1mm diameter).

Carl,

See if you can find a locksmith that makes keys and have him save the shavings for you. 
Take them and put them in a cheap coffee grinder to make them smaller.  Then mix with epoxy and use it for inlays.  it works very well.   Give the locksmith a small bowl or something and you will have a supply for life.

Carl,  Most wire has an oily coating on it to keep it from corroding as quickly.  Try wiping it down with Acetone or DNA prior to gluing just like oily woods prior to finishing.
