    A friend from the turning club came over yesterday and he showed me his take on a kitchen spatula. We worked through the first one together and today I had to try it while it was still fresh in my brain. Yellowheart and bloodwood.

    Nice! That bloodwood really stands out. Both look awesome. Next time you make one I'd love to see a step by step if you have time.

    I think I missed something as I don't understand what the goal was in the first 2 minutes of this video. A round cylinder up to 2 minutes, the something with corners...... Jerry (in Tucson)

    I don't understand why anybody would want to - but Chris said "next you're going to tell me you can turn a cube on a lathe" - so I showed him a video of somebody doing it. :cool:

    It's possible some sarcasm may have been in that original statement too. Sometimes I have been refered to as an a**hole.
