+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.

+Dan Warren: I have two types that came in the kit. The first has a free spinning collet that holds a tip like a Dremel bit. The other is a textured wheel that free spins on an axle. When either are pressed into the piece while it is spinning on the lathe, the bits rotate and the pressure from your hand/arm into the piece makes an indentation. The advice I was given was to "press harder than you think and for longer than you should." Seems to do the trick.

Well not as easy as the video, but second attempt worked out. Snowman Christmas ornament turned out of apple wood. Face is burned in. Myland's friction polish is the finish.

"Lock onto that ship with the tractor beam Mr. Checkov!"

More science fiction becomes science fact.
Physicists have built a tractor beam that can repel and attract objects, using a hollow laser beam, bright around the edges and dark in its center. It is the first long-distance optical tractor beam, 100 times larger than previous ones.

Ugh...well a day in the workshop is never a waste. However, I have nothing to show for it but shavings and dust today. Nothing worked the way I wanted it.

Yeah, it happens. For me usually because of a lack of planning but sometimes for any number of reasons.

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.

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.

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.

The food was very good and the service was prompt. The outside dining was a nice touch. A bit pricey compared to others in the area, but worth it.
