You might remember I recently posted a picture of an 11" pine vase from a hunk of pine?
I had a couple problems I am going to correct before doing another vase(I hope)
I have several pictures of my installation of a shower curtain I installed around my lathe, but unfortunately you can only post 2 pictures at a time, so I will do that. The rest is easy to imagine, this is no rocket science.
The first picture shows you how I hung the two shower curtain rods. I didn"t want any post on the concrete so I built this inverted stretcher. Both rods feed into a circle I cut out with a forestner bit and fit together like putting a tenon into a mortise. Easily made this and hung on the ceiling. You can see how the rods came together, right on the money.
Second picture is of the entire outside of the installed curtain Length is six feet and width is 5 feet. Entrance is straight thru the five foot side directly in front in the picture. Total cost is $55.22 cents. The wood and 16penny nails, and finishing nails I always have plenty. Time expended, maybe four hours. I'm an old guy and get dizzy on a little step ladder.
Well my friends this takes care of one of the problems I had turning my last vase. As these vases continue to get larger so do the number of problems I encounter, increase. The next one and the most frustrating to me is the next I am going after. This problem has to go down or my learning curve is stopped right here. Vase Wobble of a heavy turning. Believe me, I'm not going to be stopped by no wobble. I will keep you posted.
Well my friends, what do you think? Glad I did this, been putting it off long enough. Mitch
