    Jet Boat Questions

    I'm contemplating buying a boat, and after never imagining buying a non-fishing boat, that's exactly what I'm looking for. What I'd like is something for bringing a group of people out and just...

    This is how I like to turn. Going in with a plan takes most of the fun away for me. If that doesn't do it for you, go ahead and send them my way :)

    My Dad's philosophy was usually to buy the cheap version first. If you find that you use it enough to justify replacing or upgrading it, THEN you buy the nice one.

    Be sure to check into the prices on any deals you're interested in. Apparently Amazon raised the prices on a lot of items a week ago, so now the discounts look steeper than they actually are. There...

    I should have been more specific. I can cut with the push cut just fine, but for the life of me I watch the shavings fly off and it still doesn't make any sense, haha! It's almost like I'm doing a...

    That's really nice. I like that small grayish/brown section and it all has really neat grain. I just finished an ash bowl last week. It came from a log I dug out of my firewood pile that had probably...

    Reed, I believe I have watched all of your videos. I like your style of turning because I too really enjoy using scrapers. They just seem to make more sense in my head. I'm still not exactly sure how...

    Common size for bowl gouge

    After watching countless hours of woodturning videos on Youtube, it seems like a 5/8" bowl gouge is very common. I started with a 3/8" from PSI, and decided that it was too small, so I decided to...

    Paul, I was surprised too. The only other piece that I had finished turned really dark with BLO. I only used sanding sealer and EEE Ultra Shine on this bowl.

    Russian Olive Bowl

    It's a slow day on the forums, so I thought I'd share a bowl I made from wood given to me by a fellow Creeker, Paul Williams. Paul cut up and helped me load a nice haul of wood that he'd recently cut...

    Congrats! I'm counting down the days. Unfortunately for me that's in the neighborhood of 12,500 days, and that's if my generation is allowed to retire before 70.

    This sums up my Rockler experience as well. Maybe it's because I'm in my 30's, but it's just never a great experience. It's usually something like this:

    You could take a look at they use for building fishing rods. Drying the epoxy that holds the guides in place is a very similar process. I always used Angler's Workshop.

    It looks like in 2016 they added the "Overheight Must Turn" sign. When an overheight vehicle approaches the sign starts blinking and the light turns red to give the driver a minute to stare at it.
