  1. no mate, you'll just need to give me a bell as it's a custom job.
  2. nice of you to say so but not all art is meant to stay pristine.
  3. yes elbow height is usually best if you can do it with your set up. you need to set up the bench to suit the center height of the lathe and your elbow height. i have a jet 3520b which i think has a 45 1/2" spindle height but my elbows are 49" from the floor when barefoot. still, it does ok for me... @Con feel free to contact me if you want any help...

    softwoods are not my strong point. a fir seems likely.

  9. sadly i can't use Arbtalk with my ancient computer. it stopped working around xmas and just says a secure connection can't be found or something similar.
  10. hi Andrew, i must be honest the first gut notion took me in the direction of the Khaya genus which are the African mahogany group. happy for you to send me a sample of you want me to make sure. you are best off messaging me on facebook as i can see Arbtalk on my own computer. i'll message you my profile. just for your information Honduran Brazilian and Cuban are effectively the same wood. yes there are two different species in the genus Swietenia but they are not discernable from one another.
  11. wouldn't bother mark, Ron's not actually any good at identifying species...
