I created this blog to share my passion for woodturning. It includes articles I have written, links to YouTube videos of my demonstrations, demonstration handouts and links to other useful woodturning information.
I will add photos again when Google fixes their broken slideshow gadget.

Someone said that any wood on the side of the road is a potential bowl if you have your chainsaw with you. I saw a piece on the side of the road as I drove by it on the way to church a few weeks ago. I stopped by on the way back and saw it was a clean chunk of ash about 14" in diameter. I strained to lift it up to my car trunk only to discover it was a little too big to fit. What to do?
I went home, made a portable sawbuck and came back with it and my trusty Stihl MS290 chain saw. Here is the wood before I cut it in half so I could carry it home.The sawbuck is simply four pieces of 2X4 about 12" long glued and pegged with dowels. I could have used screws and it would have been faster but with my luck my chainsaw blade would eventually find them.
If your chain ever touches the ground while moving it is trashed.
