Adventures in Woodturning: New Tool Rack (And the death spiral associated with this hobby).

It’s sort of a never ending series…

  • I like woodturning
  • I should get a lathe
  • I’ll need a place to put it – okay, build a workshop
  • Got the workshop, need power.
  • Got power, need the lathe. Hi Craigslist!
  • Also need tools
  • Gosh it’s dark in here, need lights
  • Look at all the sawdust! Need a shop vac.
  • Dayam, my tools are dull, need a grinder
  • Grinder is okay, but a jig for the tools on the grinder is helpful
  • Could use a better chuck for the lathe
  • Hmm, time to start finishing – need sandpaper.
  • And polyurethane
  • and stains
  • and brushes and clothes for them.
  • My garbage can needs to be larger
  • Where the heck can I get more wood?

It sorta goes on and on. But, there’s also the point where you can build your own stuff. I can’t make my own tools, but I can build lighting and a new tool rack!

Scraps around the shop put it all together – it was a nice Saturday afternoon project.

Need more wood…
