    Not cutting diamond tips off

    Lloyd Thank you. That is what I needed to see and found where my mistakes were at. Will try again next time Im in my shop. I found that I needed to take more out of the center as with the SW design.

    My Second Urn

    A close friends wife past away and I felt I needed to do something special for his family. I got to work and made this urn. I don't think its bad for my second urn. I added a threaded lid for ease of opening and closing and some chatter work to the lid.

    New Segmented Woodturner

    Hi, My name is Peter Huckstep and I have been turning a little over a year. I have made pens and very small boxes as I had only a mini lathe. I have moved up and just purchased a full size lathe so now can move on to turn larger segmented items even though I enjoy the small things. It is...
