Here is a picture of a gouge (ring tool) and a handmade Steadyrest. I made it out of Rollerblades (skates) I forget what they are called. It keeps the piece you are turning stable. Is this what you had in mind Rose? I like this challenge!

Hey, that's cheating! :lol: I think you've posted that picture before.

Actually, I think it is an excellent photo for the challenge. Nice work, both wood, and photo!

Thanks Cal, I took a series of pictures that day. But I plan on taking some new ones tomorrow just for this challenge. So I'll be back!

Freida, this is definatley what I'm looking for. Not only is it a "tool of the trade", but it's a tool that is a little out of the ordinary.

Oh, and good for you for making this tool your self! Did you get it pattened yet?

Great post,

Rose

That's one clever piece of instrumentation. There's got to be a manufacturer out there waiting to start producing these unless someone has already thought it up.

Love the details in the shot.
