    Default Spindle Workout

    Exploring my capabilities continued today, with spindle work. Pine scrap( flying softwood hits softer than hardwood) had a great time turning some tea candle holders and stained up will do the job, even got a favourite shape

    Well done Ian, nice designs that will be very popular. They look wonderful IMO

    How come they stand horizontally?

    I think you pronounced it wrong. It’s not ‘pine scrap’ it’s ‘pines crap’. I hate the stuff for anything other than clamping blocks and jam chucks.

    i like them, as Euge said, nice design.

    That’s a very elegant profile to my eye.

    Edit: I just figured out why I find it so appealing, it reminds me of a tulip.

    Kind regards,
    Lance

    Fumbler agree 100% but was a safer option than my more expensive timber

    Many pines turn well IF you use sharp tools and good technique. I have no problems turning "crapiata" but like all timbers you will always get good blanks and not so good ones.

    open the pic on your phone hit 'edit' on bottom left (if iphone) hit the little square, then if orientation incorrect, flip it. then touch bottom right hand corner and drag diagonally up slightly and it will crop the pic a touch, but it will then maintain orientation integrity. hope that helps.

    Ian this occurs because JPEG (EXIF) files are encoded with metadata that records a thumbnail of the "original image"; file capture, creation, edited date & time; image size (height & width) and orientation (landscape / portrait) among many pieces of data.

    A word of caution - Privacy is a major issue and according to some experts almost impossible to protect with 5G devices. Most users are unaware that the metadata in images (and videos) created on their devices also includes what may be privacy sensitive data such as unique device ID, plus images created on devices which include GPS chips (mobile phones, some cameras) record the "geotagging" or "geolocation" data e.g. GPS co-ordinates (position, elevation, orientation) of the camera, which may be used to identify the owner / user of the device, where and when they were at the image capture time. This may be helpful for image storage and catalogue applications BUT …....

    This metadata has been used "legitimately" by law enforcement to locate persons of interest and of course for not so legitimate or questionable purposes to identify whistle blowers, and posters of "anonomyous" images on social media, photo share sites. Some image editing software does not update the embeded "original image" thumbnail, which means edited images to obscure say a face or identifier such as a vehicle numberplate may still be identifiable in the thumbnail even though it is obscured in the edited image.

    Some image / video share sites strip the metadata, presumably to minimize privacy issues & litigation. However there is software and online tools readily available which permit anyone to upload an image and "strip" the metadata (if it still exists) to protect their privacy; or alternately "capture" it and use it as they wish, for good or not so good intent. For example the image of a person or a desired object (a rare vehicle, tool, etc) shared or posted "publicly" or "hacked" could be used to "locate" that person or item.

    Do a search of "EXIF metadata" or "JPEG Metadata" for more info.
