About

Welcome to my Blog

Hello, my name is Carl Ford and this is my Woodturning Blog.

I also have a web site at www.carlford.us or www.carlford.info


My woodturing stated back in 2002 as a hobby. It has now become an obsession.

I plan on becoming a full time studio woodturner after I retire from IBM. Until then I am a studio woodturner on weekends and weeknights.

I am very interested in doing woodturning demonstations and teaching classes.

My current obsession is Milk Paint. I also love to turn natural edge bowls, small vases and jazzing up my turnings with lots of color.

Carl Ford’s New Woodturning Blog

January 22, 2013

I decided to start my own new woodturning blog.   Why?

  • – Because my Wednesday Night Woodturning group says I have good ideas that I should share with others.
  • – Because I often find new tools, etc that work well for me and that I would like to share with others.
  • – Because I am often to lazy to write up all my little ideas for Club Newsletters and Magazines.  I just want to jot down a few sentences.

This blog will cover the following:

  • – New Tools.   Mostly woodturning tools.
  • – Ideas for new woodturning projects.   Mostly what we are doing on Wednesday Nights.
  • – Announcements for any classes I teach.
  • – Announcements for any demos I do.
  • – Announcement  for any new handouts I add to my web site.

This blog will NOT allow the following:

  • – Any chit chat in any way shape or form.
  • – Political or religious stuff.
  • – Any negative comments.   All comments will be held and moderated by me.
    It’s my Blog if I don’t like what you have to say then it goes in the bit bucket.   Go start your own Blog if you want to say negative things!
  • – Positive comments will be allowed only if they are non trivial.
  • – No spam!   I have all the spam filtering stuff turned on.

Frequency of Blog Posts:

  • – I plan on posting to this blog roughly once a week.  Probably on Fridays.
  • – You can safely subscribe to this blog.  I will not fill up your email with a lot of crap.
