Various Updates

Before the weather turned nasty, I got to turn a bit and try out the new chuck.

This was also my chance to start work on the coffee cup that one of my co-workers wanted me to make. How to build and mount the handle will be my challenge for the upcoming weeks.

Since the weather isn't cooperating today, I spent a little time finishing up my display panels for my jewelry. Simple stands with a slightly angled groove, so that the 1/4" panel slopes back ever so slightly. A pair of larger cherry panels, a pair of curly maple panels, and a small curly maple panel.

For earrings, drilling pairs of holes throughout should work well. I have yet to decide the best way to hang necklaces and bracelets, dowels or hooks.
