In our tips section, Jimmy Stripling educated us about paulownia wood and Tommy Roland shared his formula for making your own green wood sealer from candle wax.
Jim Myrick was our instructor this week. His topic was turning long stem goblets. While Jim has plenty of experience with woodturning, he is new to turning long stem goblets. And, yet he did an excellent job covering the basic strategy of using a steady rest and turning in the correct sequence. Jim showed several examples of long stem goblets he turned from box elder and apple.
Thanks Jim for an excellent class.
