Although I put a floor in the wood shop, and it is "sort of" insulted, the little space heater can't keep up with these kinds of temperatures, and I can't run the tools if the temperature in the shop is below 25 or so (course, my fingers don't like that temp, either) so right now, my Etsy store has slim pickin's. But I hear tell that the weather is going to break soon, and I can't wait to get back to the lathe. I have some nice walnut, and found a very interesting cherry blank to work on...just waiting on the weather.
Meanwhile...I have been working on various drafting techniques on the spindolyn, and playing with one of my prototypes for a spindolyn lazy Kate..what do you think? is a place for two spindolyns enough, or should it be for 4..I think 4 looks a bit cluttered, and do people really 4 ply off of spindles? I kinda don't think so...
