Well the wood pile is now getting towards the end of processing the logs I had at the end of last year which means turning time will soon be upon me again where I can have fun.

Theses picture show how many blanks I now have cut into rounds. Altogether I have done 68 of the blanks

Cut into rounds and sealed the smallest one in the pile at the front is 4" diameter and the largest is 16" the one at the bottom of the second picture so a good range of sizes

The two stacks are cut and sealed the ones on there side will need sealing first thing in the morning and the two bottom right have yet to be cut and possibly rough turned as they are cherry

Been a busy Boy, all you have to do now is think of something to turn it all into that won't earn you a 'Not another one'
response.

Just had a chap turn up and take away another pile of offcuts for his woodburner that is one job done save me a run to the tip. Will be back out there in a minute only came in for a cuppa and to order a new belt for the bandsaw as I can see it is near needing replacing. Some of them will be rough turned but there is no rush for that as I have plenty of dry blanks I can work on.

Did that about 6 yrs ago when I noticed the PolyVbelt was separating, ordered two for good measure, fitted the first a couple of months ago when I was checking the machine out, still had not failed.

Like most things if you have spares their need is invariably reduced.

Like yourself rather have it now and not have to change it rather than wait until it breaks and have to wait for a new one to arrive. I could have taken the it off and matched it at our local bearing and belt supplier and for a cheaper price but the hassle makes it not worth doing. I only ordered one but at least I could take that and match it if I feel like it

At last finished all of the wood that was outside under a tarp so now all sealed under cover and in stick. Started with 128 pieces cut from the logs then once cut into rounds and hollow form blanks gives me a good amount to turn and that is after I gave 18 pieces away this now gives me a total of 102 bowl blanks and without getting on my knees to count the hollow form blanks a rough guess of 40 to 50. Some I will eventually rough turn to speed up drying. I am expecting some losses but with that amount should still give me a good amount.

Well done, as long as you shift some of it before the next lot arrives :lol:

I can here it now:-
"why on earth he needs to collect so many bits of wood when there's that lot already out the back I've no idea"

Luckily she already knows there could be more this year but it is the case of "Well darling I need a new shed to store it in" that will be the hard part as I have already planted the seed for a bigger workshop. Now lets see if I can turn some of the previous years collection :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Can't say I've started yet on the main wood pile, one or two bits have been absorbed in behind the scenes requests and promises that conscience said should be honoured before the routine started again.
One more unusual bit was a display stand for a 1920's Designer Hat in someone's collection.

Think it's a bit pretentious for my ear warmer but needs must to give recipient some idea of scale for their approval.

Well done on converting your own wood Derek, I was just saying to the wife that you are going to have to get a bigger shed to put your wood in as your wood store must be looking a bit full now with that lot in it.
I have been in my workshop today fitting a log burner and turning a large lump of wood from my log store, can life get any better sitting in a shed nice and toasty making shavings. :D

i have been turning this small bowl

The problem I have is the older I get the more I feel the cold on top of the tablets for thinning the blood

Fortunately I have no prime medication to contend with, never the less "Bracing" this time of year just equates to "Too blasted COLD" for me.
