July 27, 2020

Two submissions and a request for turning services round out today’s keeping in touch:

Jeff Mansfield got back into his shop.
Mike Hosaluk has been busy roughing out bowls.
Doug Bornyk would like some spindles turned.


I haven’t been in the shop much lately, too many other things to do. I felt the urge today and decided to turn a ring. I included another ring I turned awhile ago for my wife. Not sure of the wood as I had ordered several different blanks. The one on the right I turned today. It is made from man made Turquoise and green glow in the dark powder.

Mike Hosaluk had excess Covid-19 energy that compelled him to work in his shop to think and make sense of the emotions that confused all of us in the early days of the pandemic lockdown. The work involved in producing this pile of bowls would suffice many of us for a lifetime but likely filled at least a week of time for Mike.

Never before have I seen a pile of bowls doing a dance.


Hi:I’m wondering if anyone in your group has turned items for sale or are willing to turn a very basic Spindle from Walnut for a cake stand I am building? I don’t have a lathe or room in my shop.
I’ve attached a photo of the cake stand, and I need someone to turn a spindle I can integrate into the top and bottom.
Kind Regards
Doug Bornyk (dougbornyk@gmail.com)
