I've never had a lathe but used a couple once. Don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I took a metalworking & woodworking class 50 years ago in California. Made a non-sparking hammer with the metal lathe and with the wood lathe made reflectors for two large speaker housings I made.
I put speakers pointing up so the sound bounced off the reflectors into all parts of the room. I made the cabinet 6-sided, covered with cork board. Beautiful if I do say so myself. Sold them to my brother years ago and he's still using them.
Daniel, all the wooden bowls, gavels, and table legs left my possession long ago. The first three years of our marriage we lived in student housing while Don finished his dental training. We went to Wildwood Station, Alaska, near Kenai, for two years while Don completed his obligation to the army. We settled nicely into a small home until Don reenlisted and served in Vietnam. Then, it was twenty years of moving every two years where we lived in military housing. Along the way, my parents sold their home that I grew up in, and they moved into a small apartment. Long story made short, My desk and chests that Dad made me and all of my wood projects left the Denoo domain to unknown places. We didn't have cameras in those days, and I have no photos.
I was very active in high school groups, i.e., Latin Club, TriSci Club, student body offices and I gave my handmade gavels to each group. I wonder if those teams still exist and if they continue to use my gavels?
I do have one piece that Dad and I made, a ceramic wall hanging mounted on a piece of wood.
Beautiful deer.....we get many in our yard too, year round.
Randy, I hope you have a very special time in China. I look forward to your report when you return.
Daniel, do you have a lathe? You have a beautiful assortment of wood species: cascara, cherry, maple, and pine. If anyone can get trees at risk to grow into healthy trees, it is you, Daniel.
I loved woodturning as a kid and made lots of things, i.e. bowls, gavels, stool legs, stuff like that. Dad taught me how to sharpen chisels; I never did get the hang of sharpening saws.
Randy, I respect your comment, "I'm in Daniel's corner when it comes to sticking with non-controversial topics. I've dropped out of several groups for that reason."
I promised Daniel and I promise you I will keep my rants away from Godless in the Garden.
I will continue to make my rants in Politics, Economics, and Religion. You know where to find me and my latest focus.
Voles, it is, Randy and Daniel. I went hunting for vole holes such as the ones Daniel directed me toward and I found dozens of those kinds of holes. I have not sighted a vole, yet, but it may be a vole that Dominic brought in the other night.
Have a great trip Randy!
Kathy, I have those wasps (bees?), too. Unfortunately, I can't tell you their name. I've heard they don't sting, however.
Thomas, that's one neat apple tree!
Just as I'm about to leave (for China), trees are about to turn autumn colors. They'll be gone by the time I return. Anyway, with all the ash trees dead from the ash borer, colors aren't as vivid anymore. Wonder if leaves are turning in Beijing?
See you in 3 weeks! I'll miss you all.
