  1. as long as the wood is dry and you leave the typical 1/8" gap between boards it should be fine. be nice to see it once complete.
  2. i'm fine mate. not been posting as my old steam powered computer won't let me get on the website. this is my mums which i do use once in a while. i'm on facebook alot these days but i'm having trouble with that now.
  3. leave them in a very dry location (best if they can be in the intended room) and leave them for 6 months. once they have got to their equilibrium then they can be processed into a table top. if you use bracing boards underneath then you will reduce the likelihood of too much warping.
  4. the silver maple i've had was just like sycamore and not what we would consider hard. it's a lovely wood if it has figure and i reckon that one will. please save it.
  5. hi all, i need some beech rather urgently for my skittles. can anyone mill me some beech as described in the title in 4' so they can fit on a pallet or 9' that can be delivered on an oversized load to slough. i can not accept spalted wood. please ONLY EMAIL ME THROUGH THE WEBSITE or feel free to phone.

  6. no mate, you'll just need to give me a bell as it's a custom job.
  7. nice of you to say so but not all art is meant to stay pristine.
  8. 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...

  9. just remember that it's best to email me as i rarely get on here... glad you are pleased with the bowls...
  10. i can make all sorts of mallets if anyone wants one... two or one piece and turned or joined.
  11. sample received and it is a Khaya genus mahogany.

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