"You've got mail"

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

I'm glad you and other folks here like the bowl, but in terms of eye candy, it's NOTHING compared to my really GOOD box elder piece:

Well, had you read the whole thread you would have figured out that TT is TexasTimbers. A fair amount of the thread is post discussing TT's box elder ... does he have any left and so forth, and including a statement from me that says "TT, I'm glad you like what I did w/ your wood". It just doesn't seem too hard to figure out.

well here's the deal pops, i don't read what every person writes, i don't have time for that. i saw your pictures and commented. asked a simple question and got a negative response. thought this site was here to help other fellow woodworkers, apparently you don't fit that criteria. simple question that required a very simple answer, instead I got "uhhhhhhhhh WHATS THE TITLE OF THIS PAGE". REALLY?????????? like i said it will be the last time i comment on your work. as a matter of fact i hope that bowl checks on you and ends up as firewood!!! you have got to be kiddin me right. :thumb down: grumpy old man

Good grief, relax dude!

Not harm, no foul.

If'n you get butthurt every time someone gives you a mildly sarcastic answer, you're in for a very rough life.

However, to show solidarity with you on this subject, I'll no longer give phinds the "big thumb" smiley when I comment on a piece that he's kind enough to share with us!

heres the deal, i have a great sense of humor. in heavy construction for 15 years now so my skin is tough. but when i ask and or comment on your work and you give me a remark such as he did, than yes i will take that the wrong way and rightfully so. and how do you tell sarcasm while reading a post??????

There is no "sarcasm" smiley, true...

But, I've found that when someone gives me a "smart-alec-y" answer, to what I think is a simple question; I generally think, "that's sarcasm".

I find it works out better for ME that way.

I suspect there really was no malice intended...

IMHO, out of the many websites I visit regularly, this is the least judgemental. Period.

Hang in there!

So does Paul. He can come across as snooty sometimes but we all can, including you I bet sometimes. I'm probably the only guy on this forum who is universally loved and has never ruffled a single feather.

But he's a good guy and if you just forget about this and let it pass like it's nothing, because it isn't, you'll find out he's one of the better guys you'll (most likely never) meet. How can you not like a guy who was a marble champion?

























See you thought that was sarcasm I bet, but it wasn't at all. In my youth I was a dang good shot myself, but this guy won tournaments!

I'm with you on the meaning of "TT" though. I'm guessing it's an acronym for "TeaTotaler" or something.


Well, that's all from me for now. I hear the tea kettle singing and the aroma of bacon is pulling me back into my Hobbit hole.

This is absolutely true.

You'll note that I did not follow this with a smily icon because I want everyone to know that I said it with a straight face.

OK, NOW I can say ...

I love the bowl! You just made me want to get into turning, badly... Also I'm going to have to give Boxelder a chance. I've always noticed the nice red colors but never had much respect for it. Not anymore. I say again, both of your pieces are beautiful!

Thanks. I WOULD suggest that you not try box elder early in your turning career, as you would likely find it VERY frustrating. You need to get used to making light passes with very sharp lathe tools to keep from crushing the end grain. As TT points out, if you turn it green, you won't have that problem (BUT you'll have other problems associated with green turning).

What you should really do is try to find a woodturning club near you a see if you can get some lessons and then some time on someone else's lathe before you decide what you want to buy for yourself. Lathes can be had for anything from a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand. I have a low-end POS myself, but that's not for everyone. Also, getting some practise with the tools will give you a sense of how much you want to spend on those as well ... again, it's quite a price range. I started off with absoute rock-bottom lowest-possible-end lathe tools and I definitely do NOT recommend them to anyone even though I do still use them occasionally. Anyway, unless you're rich, explore options a bit before spending money.
