Final project of the night is this front tote for a plane is refurbishing. He'll do final sanding.

"Jelley Girl" sounds like it should be a brand.

Did you know that in the olden days people used to have pocket watches that you couldn't use to communicate with your friends?

Harder things to find are gouges/chisels. You can spend a fortune on them but I found a place that sells a reasonably good set cheap.

You should get one man! I got mine on Kijiji for $60. They are out there if you are patient.

All these years later "I Blew Up The Clinic Real Good" by Steve Taylor holds up as a masterwork of prophetic satire.

I don't think it has been a mantra so much as a thing you just say over and over and over.

Don't worry. Another 25 years and you may have the exact opposite problem.

Thanks man. I felt pretty good about it considering it's my first day turning. Can't get to crazy with handles anyway.

It's got a coat of finishing wax on it. Likely will leave it that way to keep the contrast high. If I make another I may stain it though.

The brown on the ends was made by pressing a small strip of wood against the spinning handle and friction burning it. I love the effect.

This type of iron has a tang rather then a socket so mounting it was a brand new experience. I think I may like the tang approach more.

Finally I made this chisel handle and mounted the chisel iron itself. But his point I felt like I was getting the hang of wood turning.
