Day 297: LaVonne and Dale
I also had another visit this evening. A fellow turner came over for a lesson. He recently purchased a bowl coring system (allowing a turner to get multiple nested bowls from a single piece of wood) and was having some trouble getting it to work properly. We turned and cored a piece of African Sumac he brought with him and then talked shop, lathes, woodturning forums, jigs, wives, kids, and work. He has the same lathe I have and has been assembling the parts to a vacuum chuck and wanted to check out my setup. Dale also has a woodturning blog: turnsandtwists.blogspot.com.
