Want to turn some Maple?

Terry McConnell has just cut down a Maple tree and is hoping some fellow turners are interested in sharing this wood.  He is happy to give it away but cannot hold it so it is available on a first come/first served basis. Terry has sent some pictures to give you an idea of the size and condition of the wood.

If you are interested give Terry a call at 306 227-9613.

I thought they were intriguing enough to share with everyone.  Hope you think so too.

Here is a link to an article about battery storage – may not be the final answer, but it is starting to look like grid-utility-scale storage is just around the corner. Click HERE.

Here is a link to the solution to a common problem of wobbly tables. Wonder how long before the world can afford to switch out the old ones. Click HERE.
