An Afternoon with My Chainsaw
By Leslie Struthers
Carnegie, PA

My name is Leslie Struthers, I'm a turner in Southwestern Pennsylvania. I turn in my basement shop and I keep track of my turning successes and failures in a collection of Shop Notes. I recently added a lovely Oneway 24/36 to the shop and have been trying to live up to it ever since.

CLICK HERE to read a hilarious and perhaps all-too-familiar account of Leslie going head-to-head with her chainsaw:

Blair Swing started woodturning in a high school class in 1975, and then took an almost 30 year hiatus. He is back at it, and here are some of the beautiful pieces he produced then and now.

Did Blair's style change over his 30 year hiatus? You be the judge! CLICK HERE to take a look:

I find that I use magnets in many different jobs around my shop - they really are quite a useful tool. How do you use magnets around your own shop?
