    Bushings stuck on pen blank that was slightly too small

    Howdy! So I turned an epoxy blank from PSI that was pre-drilled and had a brass tube installed. However, the bushings did not fit nicely inside like normal. It seemed the brass tube was too small. I insured the sizes were all correct, they were, and decided to use the lathe to crank the...

    Polymer Clay Blanks

    I've seen some amazing polymer clay blanks and thought I would experiment. Watched a few video tutorials and figured why not, give it a try. It's not as easy as it looks, but not bad for simple patterns. I dropped $25 bucks at the craft store for an assorted pack of Sculpey III clay and a...

    Have some Corian I kept from a guy I bought out. Now that I need room, decided I will never use them. The 3/4 x 5 white blanks are at size or a bit over. The short blanks are right at a 1/2” in the thin dimension. The small stone looking pieces are pretty cool Corian Blanks - 45 white 3/4 x 5 3...

    Wood ID Help

    I was given this dark piece from someone who knew I turned pens. (Curly maple is in the background for comparison). The best I can describe it is that it's very dense and heavy and hard as can if it were stabilized but it's just plane jane wood from what I can tell. Is it teak? Thanks guys!
