    My first prototypes of this project went to relatives for Christmas gifts. I hadn't used the lathe in 15 or 20 years and started with some avocado "firewood". I kept refining techniques and learned to use glue liberally and patiently on the inlay. I used yellow heart and purple heart on this one...

  8. April showers = May flowers; June snow = ... some workshop time and an Ice Cream Scoop

    The past weekend morning snow in Alberta had given me a perfect reason to complete an unfinished project I started on Thursday. (Confession: that wasn't the only unfinished project in my shop; there're three (or four?) other work-in-progress projects waiting for my attention. Well, remember...

    A couple days before Christmas Deb stopped by woodcraft to pick something up for me. She also brought back an ice cream scoop kit (very nice stainless kit.) She suggested I make a handle for it from dunnage to give to our daughter in law (that gets the dunnage for me.) So I grabbed a pre-cut...

I made the scoop end on axis, then shifted about 1/4 inch in one direction, then 1/4 inch in the other. But I didn't turn the off...
