Haven’t done any turning for about two years so started off slowly; had to locate everything I needed first!
Turned these only using a roughing gouge; a bit of practice before the pine below.
First time I tried the sierra pen blank also first time I have turned a razor handle
What happens with blunt tools and delicate blanks!
Engine for my train entry in this years plank competition, quite pleased with the result. Had to use a few more tools though, realized I have a lot of sharpening to do soon. Also went through quite a bit of sandpaper.
I am an accountant who uses woodwork as a way to escape computers. I work in the back half of a tandem garage under the house; effectively a basement that also houses my wife’s car. I have a reasonable set of tools and am getting more into hand tools, mainly due to the lack of noise and dust minimization.
I live in Sydney Australia and am a active member of The Shire Woodworking Club, Cubby House Turners & Woodies Inc and The Traditional Tools Group Inc
Why Hugo’s Woodshop?
All decent website options with Gary were taken so I had to look for something else!
Hugo is our 3 year old Ragdoll cat who is very nosy and likes investigating the garage / workshop:
