  • Having done a little end grain cup turning I want some advise. I have a piece of ash which I could split and turn 3 or 4 cups from. Alternatively I could turn an end grain bowl out of the single piece. The questions I have are: is ash suitable for cups, and is it possible to turn an end grain bowl? All feedback welcome, Tim
  • This is like a normal drawknife but has one or more raised semicircular areas for making rods like rake handles. Anyone know where I can get one?
  • I'm trying to find various wood-related sites I'd bookmarked, and am not having much luck. Thought I'd check in here and see if a link list had been set up. Haven't found one yet (after looking at the Links section on here), so would be glad for a pointer. If there isn't a list already, can this post serve as a temporary place for people to list their favourite related sites? At the moment, my highest priority is in tool making, maintenance, and repair, but I'd also be glad to see links to sites about courses, materials, techniques and so on!
