Featured Turning Project

Natural Edge Goblets - revised
by Brian Clifford

In this revisited project, Brian turns a goblet from the end grain of a tree limb. He uses the irregular nature of the branches that he finds for a wonderful, very organic shaped goblet.

Brian uses both drawing and photos to show you all the steps necessary to get really wild looking goblets.

This protective project mat is made from heat-resistant, easy-to-clean silicone, meaning wet glue rinses off and dried glue peels off. Use it anywhere you want to protect your work surface or your project, whether in the garage, shop or on the dining room table. Since it's heat-resistant, it works well as a protective barrier for hot glue guns. The material is very soft, and one side has a textured surface to trap debris that could scratch or dent your project.

Designed with simplicity and versatility in mind, the Rockler Finishing Sprayer is the ideal solution for anyone wanting a smooth, professional-quality finish in very little time. It is capable of applying anything from lacquer finishes, varnishes and urethanes to unthinned latex paints. Thanks to Earlex® high-volume, low-pressure technology (HVLP), it does so with minimal overspray. The spray pattern is adjustable from 1'' to 12'' wide so you can tailor the output to your needs. The 13' flexible hose provides enough length so you can move around your project, while the 1 qt. paint cup provides plenty of capacity without excessive weight. 1.5mm and 2.5mm needles are included, along with complete instructions for operation and cleaning.
