From Bernard Nagel…
I finally finished this six segment, four ring Baltic birch plywood vase and finished it with ruby red aniline dye and three coats of minwax polycrylic . I will try to get some fall or winter tulips  from the shop tulip patch to put in it but I have a table to build before I can get to that.

There are two submissions today.
– Mel Genge has a video on how to make a pepper mill.
– Al Bakke has two items for sale.


Mel’s video that was discussed in the last post is now available on our YouTube Channel.


If you need a vacuum pump for your shop this is the deal for you.
Al Bakke has an oil based pump for sale that is a larger capacity and runs quietly.
Al also has an older air compressor that is in great shape. It has a 1.5 HP motor with a tank, wheels and handle.
Contact Al at (306) 343-1355 if you are interested.

Keeping in Touch, July 14, 2020.

We have a couple of entries in today’s Keeping in Touch.

– Bernard Nagel turned a vase and some tulips.
– Mel Genge has finished another set of grinders.


One of my neighbours cut down some trees this spring and I got a piece of some kind of poplar I think. I turned the vase when it was still green and finished it with Danish oil after a month or more of drying. I made some more tulips from maple and finished them with aniline dye and a final coat of Minwax polycrylic to give them a nice shine.

I was telling Trent that I was going to make a new set of mills for my son Shawn, and Trent said “Why don’t we make a video of you making them.” There will be an announcement in the blog when the video is ready. These are the final pair of grinders from my project. I had taken them to Listowel Trophies on 1st Avenue in Saskatoon and had some laser engraving done on them. They are finished with Watco oil and buffed.
