Live Edge and Flying Shrapnel - 13 replies

First go at live edge and I’m fairly pleased with the result. I have another that is almost identical….both came from odd chunks that were very thin on one side lending to either a very shallow platter or a live edge. A little thick and chunky to be sure but not too bad. And whoops…..I tend to leave my bowls thick...

Woodturning with....stone? - 6 replies

A little off topic but this curiosity has gotten then better of my wife and I. I’m a mediocre wood turner but I enjoy it and my work occasionally turns out pretty good. I am in the market for and likely going to purchase a new lathe as early as this weekend. My Rikon midi is just old and tired and frankly, not big enough to do what I want....
