Day 97: Preview
What little I did get done is for an idea I had a couple of nights ago. I don't want to give away too much but it's a very small project but also very ambitious. In total it will be turned on 16 centers and should only be at most 3-4" diameter.
The layout marks for the 16 centers are to the left.
I may end up doing this over as I'm not completely happy with the spacing of the holes, I think the drill bit may have wandered slightly on some of the holes but this may not matter in the end. I'll probably work on a prototype out of Box Elder before I break out the Holly that I plan to use on the finished piece. If the Box Elder works out I may end up using this one again, if not I'll make another one before I break out the Holly.
I also received a call from a fellow woodturner tonight, he was on his way back home and wanted to know if I wanted a fresh cut olive log. Of course I do. He dropped off a nice heavy olive log and I sent him on his way with one of the shoestring acacia logs I got 2 weeks ago. I think I got the better end of the deal.
