Green Wood Turner

RATE THIS:

I recently inherited my grandfather's lathe. I really didn't know much about turning,and still don't! But I decided that experience would be the best way to learn. (As with most things.) After I got this "new"toy set up,I thought "Lets try it !" So I installed a one and one half inch square piece of wood and proceeded to test what I could remember from high school(30 +years ago.) It didn't take long to figure out the tools were dull. I asked for help on this site and got what I needed on sharpning these tools. Thanks for the input, guys!!! I tried a few more turning projects,  and if I can get the pics to come up ,I'll show the results!! Regards,BB

I read a post from 2009 which sounded like you were interested in large slabs?  I had 30 large Walnut slabs cut in Michigan for my own use and will be trucking them through your area to Portland Oregon.  

If you are interested on one or more, I can send you pictures and approximate pricing.
