    Storm felled timber.

    Turn it as wet as you can with walls as thin as you can and let it move. The warping is wonderful. If you want to season it, cut it now to exclude the pith area before it cracks but you're still likely to lose sections. Good luck.

    Actually, you'd be pretty close to the truth. In Cornwall, they call holidaymakers Emmets which translates as ants.

    Copper verdigris paint?

    I have a metal (probably mild steel) bench and a metal wind sculpture in the garden Both are finished with paint that gives a copper verdigris type effect although the colours are slightly different. I want to refinish / refurbish them both. Photos attached. Has anyone used this type of paint...

    2021 Secret Santa.

    My experience is different. Royal Mail has worked pretty well for me over 30 years in business with only the occasional blip and no lost items or failed deliveries. Hermes on the other hand are cheap but often unreliable. One example - about 3 weeks ago, on a Saturday, I booked a Monday...

    Wanted Stabilizing wood

    Hi, yes, it had it's challenges! I had to concentrate very hard, firstly to turn it without breaking bits off and secondly to keep my fingers intact. Much to my surprise I managed both. I sell some stuff but I won't sell that one - it's got a lot of my determination and skills wrapped up in it.

    Wanted Stabilizing wood

    I agree with the CA glue principal. It's cheap, easy and works very well. Here's a project that shows it in action.

    I have a problem with a Poolewood lathe VSD

    I'm not sure I agree with Fred about the quality. I had one and got very fed up with the agricultural nature of the construction. On the plus side, it has a very good electronic control, plenty of power and a swivelling headstock. On the downside, the tailstock clamps are adjustable but, on...
