Shop Vac Turning

Here is a short video of Glen Rundell roughing out some blanks using my shop vac and a large gouge. I started roughing this way a while back, and besides the noise of the shop vac, I can't find a reason not to do this. Besides the heavy shavings that get sucked away, the fine dust never makes it airborn!

I have new contact info for anyone trying to call or write me.

Hi Peter,

Just finisched reading about your complete blog. That took some time! But this is a remarkable resource of lots of excellent information, so it was worth it. Until now I knew nothing about green woodworking. Now I'd like to try some for myself. Keep up the good work,

Greetings from The Netherlands, Kees

This gets filed in the "why didn't I think of that!" file. Brilliant
