Use for leftover turning nubbins

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Use for leftover turning nubbinsI had a little over 2 inches of a turning leftover and decided that I liked the figure enough to find a use for it. I have more than enough awls, so I was originally thinking about a ceiling fan pull. Then I realized I need a knob on my lathe tool rest. It's just a friction fit, but it's made a huge improvement. No more rattling and the slide handle is no longer constantly in the way of moving the banjo. It's now the nicest thing about the lathe!

Recent pen order

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Recent pen orderI was asked a while back if I could make pens with Steelers and cowboys logos…. took me a while to find someone that had blanks (I've yet to try casting my own) but I finally found some here that are made of alumilite. I'd never turned alumilte before but it was great to work with! As you see in the second picture it can be fragile… my own fault I got overly confident after three pens when perfect and tried going to fast making deeper cuts.Highly recommend these pen blanks and encourage you to check out the Etsy shop in the link if your interested in different blanks! Amazing response time, great service and quick shipping.
