yesterday at ESSA

Yesterday Bob Patrick and I switched students, with mine from earlier in the week moving to making hardware in the metals studio, and the ones who had made hardware the first two days moving to the wood shop. By Friday we will be ready to add the hardware and install the nails that hold the Viking chests together as a finished and lasting pieces. So far, my students seem very pleased with their work and with what they have learned.

Today we have studio stroll from 4-5 PM and you are welcome to attend. There will be demonstrations to enjoy in blacksmithing, wood turning, and in the wood shop.

Yesterday, also, we tested the vacuum dust removal tool that I had designed. It works much better for hand held sanding on the lathe than for sanding with a power drill, as the extra air effects of a power tool disrupts the flow of air created by a spinning bowl or spindle. You can find a video of its operation on my instagram account.

Make, fix and create. Assist others in learning likewise.
