October 7, 2020

There are three entries for today.
– One is a few days late so my apologies to Mel and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
– Rick Hounjet has been busy turning and dyeing some more beautiful Box Elder burl.
– Lawrence Pinter has finished building his shop and is looking for advice.


You might remember a post from August where Mel showed us the Stanley Cup he turned.

And here is the final version of Mel’s Stanley Cup.


Rick seems to have a never ending supply of beautiful burl. His use of Keda Dyes gives his work a unique vibrancy.


Shop construction is finished; now for the setting up.  I welcome input from the membership regarding – what tools, equipment, or materials are essential for the well equipped shop aside from dust control, lathes, bandsaw, drill press and grinder?

Send your suggestions to Lawrence at: lawrence.pinter@pinter.ca
