Last year I made a small turned gift box (2.5" OD roughly 6.3 cm) for my wife to give her a set of Troll beads. Since then I have given her several more and the box no longer closes.  So I turned her a new box yesterday. It is 6" OD and should hold many more.

I found this really interesting.
Generally speaking, wood is often put into one of two categories- hardwood and softwood. But what exactly makes a given piece of wood qualify as either hard or soft and how did those definitions come about?

+Daniel Brinneman , I sanded the bowl progressively from 80 grit to 1000 grit. Then I added two coats of shellac, buffing in between coats with steel wool. I added the bee's wax last.

I got a texturing tool at the Baltimore Woodworking show this past weekend and finally got a chance to use it. Wood is Ailanthus; outside diameter is about 11"; finish is boiled linseed oil.

I've had very good results with shellac. I have used food safe bowl oils for some things. It just depends on the final use of the bowl.

Antikythera mechanism: Researchers find clues to an ancient Greek riddle

(Phys.org)—An ancient Greek astronomical puzzle now has another piece in place.

One Eleven Main just opened and we wanted to try it out. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in dark walnut paneling and cast iron pedestal tables. There is limited street parking directly in front and around the corner in the public lot. The menu was very limited and a bit eclectic. I had no trouble finding meal choices, but my wife found little that excited her. The wine menu is also limited and quite expensive when compared to wine shop prices for the same label. While service was outstanding, people were only served one small piece of bread and the butter as presented looked like used butter smeared on the side of the dish. We were told it was artistic. The bread was not tasty, but the rest of the food tasted excellent. I had the pork shank and my wife had the chicken. She wished the white meat portion was larger, but it tasted very good. We ended up going elsewhere for dessert since nothing on the sweets menu sounded worth trying. However, I think we will be back.

Kitbar is supposed to be a "kitchen bar", but you can forget the kit. It is really just a large bar that serves fancy tapas. The noise level was deafening, which totally ruined the atmosphere. It might be OK for a quick drink, but not worth going back to dine.

Absolutely the best dinner I have had in a long time. French cuisine at its finest.

On the outside the Lodge in Hickory looks like a Swiss chalet turned redneck bar. However, the food was very good and presented well on the plate. The menu is limited, but they had a good mixture of steaks, sandwiches, and local seafood. They have a full bar, with unfortunately a limited wine list. It is worth trying and perhaps we'll go again.

We've played this course every year for the past three years we have visited family in the area. The course is in great shape and has a challenging layout. There is a lot of elevation change on many of the holes which adds to the challenge. While I prefer to walk, there is too much distance between holes to do that. The clubhouse is nice and has a working bar. I highly recommend it if you are in the Ackworth, Marietta, or Cartersville area.

The food was OK, but not much flavor. Surprising since the place was packed with lots of reservations; they were turning groups away at the door. Good mix of seafood, steak and pasta. Decent wine selection.
