Notice my regular tool rest could not reach so I am using an old water pipe, very inexpensive. I have glued , first I gave it some oil, the reason is that there will not be as bad a shiny spot where the glue hit and the glue will still work. I filled the cracks with very fine dust from the sanding and then used the thin super glue over that. Then when I go back and clean it up I will do the same again. Both on the inside and outside.
Have just been to the shop, even though it is cold outside the sun has a lot of power
The piece is app 12" tall and 17" deep. I am trying to thin it out to app. 1". (Have quite a bit of work to do) I know there are cracks but do not worry about them just yet. When I leave the turning I put a plastic bag over it so that no new cracks happens. The cracks that you see were there from the beginning, I will explain later on how I keep them from getting worse, for now it is the plastic bag that helps most, I do not feel it is worth using super glue just yet.
Cold beautiful morning -6º C/ 21º F
Kelly seems to enjoy the cold weather she is in and out spends a lot to time in the back yard. We usually try to walk around 45 min every day, but today, maybe we will go straight to the shop. The view is fantastic. It is the town Rørvig on the other side.
