It's been a while since I asked, so I was wondering, what is everyone working on or what's you most recent project?

Stubbed my toe on a piece of microlam. Thought I would teach it a lesson!

I'll be interested in seeing the end result of that "lesson". Smiley I never thought about using something like microlam for turning.

A few weeks ago I got a mini laser engraver. This morning I made a jig to engrave around the circumference of a pen (or whatever).

On the lathe, I have been making a series of pens - not sure what got me started, but have a couple graduate pens to complete, and cleaning up kits and blanks that have been laying around for a few years.

Old Delta 12" 46-701 in great condition. Had it about 20+ years and turned 1 part.

Right now i'm turning a yo-yo out of black locust. Found a good way to make it by drilling a 7mm hole thru the blanks and cementing in a piece of standard 7mm brass pen tube. Turned on the pen arbor Wink I don't know, maybe that's the way everyone does it??

That's the way I do it but there are special yo-yo mandrels and such out there if you want.

Sorry, Ed. Everything that I've worked on in the past few months has gone to heating a friend's house. Maybe the next time you ask I'll have something to contribute.

I haven't started yet, but we have #6 great grand son born 5 weeks ago. I'm going to make a baby rattler for him, from wood similar to the one posted on the Forum a few weeks ago.
I'll try to remember to post a picture when I get to that point.

Granddaughter requested I make a pen for their wedding registry book. Just finished a one piece Wenge body with a turned Brazilian Cherry cross on top.

I have been working on a lot of bowls. I had 2 demos, one in Washington, and one in Portland, OR where the club wanted Bowl Turning 101 for the evening. I did 2 bowls, one the way I turn when doing production work, and one the way most other people turn bowls. I have been spending a lot of time trying to figure out the NRS and applying that to bowls, and working on improving my over all bowl skills. I think it is time to do 'new and improved' bowl turning videos.... Have a show coming up in about a month, the only one I do any more....

Oh, trying to get 'path ways' and stations established in the new shop....
