Default Harry's future projects

Today was the third day without setting foot in my shed, instead I went shopping for goodies for future projects. As you can see, I have quite a few pen kits, 20 in all which includes some one off samples to try out. I bought the two 5 packs and the 2 set DVD's on sharpening from my usual shop but was given the address of a business that only sells "bits and pieces" for crafts people and wood-turners. Most pen kits were under $3.00 and the large 160mm clock was under $20.00 compared to $45.00 at my normal place! The 130mm clock seems to be undercharged at just $9.00, I have phoned the shop and will sort it out next time I go there. When I'm in the mood I intend to make two replica French balloon clocks similar to the one that won me the last competition, unfortunately the smaller one is larger than my small replica and the large one is larger than my large replica so at this stage I'm not sure if just a change of cutter will mean I can use my existing templates, if not a photo-shoot on making new templates could be of interest to those wishing to make an heirloom or two. Keep watching all ye who may be interested.

Alright that looks like quite a haul there Harry. Mike Darlow also turns a lot of boxes! I am always interested in template photo shoots Harry!

You know that a photo shoot is something everyone on this forum wants Harry. You've done it now, you've said you'll do one so there's no backing out now....:-)

Seriously, the things you do are so good, everyone will benefit from your shoots.

Harry, it looks like you are going to be a bit busy in your shop. Having bought the sharpening DVD's, I thought you might find the following link interesting. He shows how to make a very neat and simple jig for sharpening lathe chisels on a grinding wheel and he even has some videos showing it in use. I plan on trying my hand at making one of these:

Yeah Ed and Harry is the one that pushs for them photo shoots. Harry Looks like you have your work cut out for you. I think I made you a monster pen turner TOLD YOU SO! The clock faces look great can't wait to see what style of wood working you do with them. Now that you have a lathe saw Norm Abrams from the yankee workshop do this he turned a spindle on the lathe then cut it half and used it as a decorative spindle on of his projects.
