Crazy conditions here in Ontario as well. Very hot. They are evacuating some communities because of forest fires in northern Ontario. And we also have a fire ban almost everywhere. Not a great summer for being outside.

making cup and ball is on my list...

this was just a first, sample turning, for calibration of the new lathe. random piece of green tree chunk made into a rounder shape.

the side bit is actually pleasing to me. will have to copy that. could be a style :D holy grail?

so, now i can [re]make chisel handles nicely - woot; tops, spinners, bowls, cup, goblets, vases, and all that fancy stuff.

try turning a "kuska" like object -- the assymetric handle whack gets old FAST, but the end result is kinda cool.
