Today it is mostly about woodturning and woodcarving, even though there is still an instrument or two to create or repair but maybe that is a whole other post? There was never a chance to boast about the creation of those tools and there is certainly no need to now. And do understand that it is a very understated boast. In fact it is all Debbie's fault, the boldness that is. You know, Debbie wife of The WoodArt Studio artist, Steve. So onto it now. The Woodturners of the Virginias (WoVa), had their 2012's first Quarterly Challenge- Make a Tool. So what tool better to bring then the latest and possibly the best of all the woodturning tools created…the Steady Rest.
Used to keep the wood from wobbling this one is perfect for the job. And the WoVa people thought so also and gave this tool 1st place honors at the March meeting and gift certificates to buy more tools. It doesn't get too much better than this. Thanks WoVa for thinking my Steady Rest worthy. Now onto more turning.
Until next we meet…use the right branch.
