    Pat - did you catch that fish w/ a bamboo pole? My FIL had a house (still owned by family w/ my BIL there now) in Montauk, LI and had Hatteras boats (about 40 ft or so) - but we used to go fishing in Long Island Sound and at Montauk point - bluefish, fluke (a.k.a. flounder), sea bass and others - also clammed in Lake Montauk - goes back over 20 years ago, but was a lot of fun! AND, the fish was indeed fresh and outstanding! Dave

    No, this was the Channel Islands off of So.Cal. with an Ugly Stick.

    Nice catch Pat and the Ugly Stick range are great rods.
    Fishing is all about getting your head around the secret code for that day, and tomorrow it will be a different code.
    It can be mentally exhausting :-)
    Tight lines.

    Didn't take me too many casts to figurer out exactly what that meant. This is why I haven't been fishing in years.

    Hello Imoeddy - just for clarification, do you mean 'finishing' as in woodworking or 'fishing'? Thanks - Dave

    I've been busy at my hobby again and I saw the light again. Well, for the forth time really. I love turning lamps. Angle poise to be precise and this is the biggest one yet.

    Beech stem and arm peices, oak base and leylandii shade. I was given a not very nice looking lump of oak on a visit to a wood supplier in Carcassonne a couple of years back when I bought a couple of beech planks, 2" x 8" x 10' for some other job. I have some of the beech left over, so I decided to make this lamp.

    The base is about 12" diameter and took 1/2 of the oak. This is a before/after photo



    It turned out better than I had expected. I wanted to hide the cable in this one, apart from the elbows of course. I had to do the upright in 3 sections as my lathe bad is about 3" long, so I cheated with the join by putting a contrasting ring between the bits. It would be very difficult to get the 2 to align perfectly and it looks awful if they don't.



    The shaft top knucle was fun too, but it was a good finish



    The shade is that stuff that every gardener this side of the pond adores, especially if it's the neighbours ajoining hedge, leylandii! It is lovely to turn though and takes a lovely finish too.



    And the completed lamp is now in use each evening in our lounge. But the photo was taken outside before anyone comments



    Next? I have a 12" long by about 8" diameter leylandii log on the lathe and I hope to make about 6 small dishes from it. It's good fun as it's all shapes and lumps, but I know there's are lovely dishes hiding in there. All I have to do is dig them out

    Well, on the first page of this thread, I listed a number of activities, including traveling which we start in the early spring (typically Florida or the Carolina/Georgia coast), then continuing monthly and ending w/ mountain trips in the summer - although in early July we will be returning to Canada (this time a lake north of Toronto and then the city).

    In early April, a trip to South Beach in Miami - stayed at the Ritz; ate well (all seafood), including a wonderful Sunday brunch at the hotel which included great oysters and sushi among many other choices; had not been to Miami in a dozen or more years, so did a city tour that included visiting a number of unique neighborhoods (such as Little Havana & Wynwood, famous for outdoor wall murals on the various buildings), a boat ride, and a return to Vizcaya Museum & Gardens - just a few pics below (for those interested, I write 'travelogues' of our trips on the iPad Forums - go HERE to their 'Travel Forum').

    Earlier this month, a return trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - we always stay in the northern part of the long town - as usual ate well - all seafood for me w/ daily oysters - a repeat experience for us is to visit Brookgreen Gardens (last 4 pics in next post - many, many more in a travelogue if you want to plan a trip) and then have an early dinner in Murrells Inlet.

    Next week, a 'bucket list' trip for me - likely our last visit to the North Carolina Outer Banks - this will take us a week - starting in the north (Roanoke Island, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Duck etc.) - then heading south to Buxon, mainly to see the 'moved' Hatteras Lighthouse; onto Ocracoke Island for a few nights; then the Cedar Island ferry back to the mainland w/ a final night in New Bern - just hope that the weather is nice. Dave

    P.S. cannot seem to upload 8 images to a single post - the Brookgreen Garden pics are in the next post w/o comment.

    Brookgreen Gardens pics from my previous post - assume a limitation on the number of pics and/or their size allowed per post? Again, many more images in my travelogue given previously, if interested. Dave

    She Who Has Everything? What do I make for her? Well I thought that I would start with this and it is the first time I have made one. Not very pretty at this stage is it



    It's in 2 bits comme ša



    I also had some of this



    So I heated it up a bit on the camping cooker, put the bits back together and very carefully poured the red stull into the hole on the top, with a bit-a-string down the middle of course and finished up with



    Which goes in here



    There was a blue jobbie in there originally and neither SWMBO or I really liked it and try as I might I couldn't find a replacement, not even in blue! I think it looks much better. I have posted the candle holder before with the blue jobbie in it.

    The wooden bit is turned using what is called insid out turning. Sounds more difficult than what it is really. It's called inside out because the inside is turned first, then the outside. You are with me on this???
