    Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. Calvin Coolidge

  1. Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners August 16, 2017

    Nice job again Lew, I've gotten to where I look forward to this feature every week. Looking at your catch I can say at least I'm in good company! Steve
  2. Why they call it a learning curve

    That's the shavings that hadn't ejected yet. This is on me, 100%. Just got careless Steve
  3. Why they call it a learning curve

    THIS is why Dang, hate it when that happens. Have done a few successful forms the last couple of weeks and I guess I just got to aggressive on this one. Didn't have any idea I was in trouble until it separated. I was really pleased with the form on this one too. Oh well, it's how we learn!! Movin' on Steve
  4. DC wireless remote

    I bought a high dollar one from Rockler, around a hundred bucks if I remember right, lasted nearly a year. To Rockler's credit they replaced it no questions. Replacement lasted nearly a year. Bought a utilitech remote from Lowes for about 20 dollars, several people told me what junk they are. It lasted the better part of two years. It did eventually go bad and so I bought another. Steve
  5. Some Days You Should Just Stay In Bed

    Lew, all I can say it, I feel your pain. That was a nasty catch!! We have all "been there, done that". Still, I'm looking forward to seeing where you go from here. Steve
  6. Cap'n Eddie 12 Cent Pens

    Nicely done Dan, what a great gift. That's one of my favorite Captain Eddie videos. Steve

    Nice job Lew, lots of good info again this week. It's obvious you take this feature seriously and devote a lot of time to it. Thank you. Steve

  9. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers! August 7th, 2017

    Good Morning! I've got a couple hollow forms in process drying, hope to start another but won't get much shop time until Wednesday. Hard to believe but we're into the second week of August already, it's starting to feel like fall and the Brrrrr months come next. I'll start turning ornaments in the next week or two. Ornaments and spin tops are popular this time of year. I have a couple flat work projects coming up. Have to make a base for a barrister book case and a small chest of drawers. Steve
  10. Wednesday's Inspired

    Outstanding Dan! I want one! Steve
  11. Beautiful Spalted Bowl

    That is some outstanding spalting, no substitute for pretty grain. Steve
  12. Sealing wood.

    I use anchorseal2 on bowl blanks. Gerald has it right to cut the pith out. Still, unless the blank is completely covered in wax or other sealer you're on the clock and eventually they will still begin to split, at least in my experience. I prefer to leave the logs as long(length) as possible and only make blanks when I'm ready to turn them. I'm turning some walnut this week and logs have been on the ground in a shady area for about five years. Of course there is some spalting and I lose a foot or so off the ends. Walnut can lay a long time and still be usable. Maple or cherry, not so much. Steve
  13. Happy Birthday Steve Krumanaker

    Wow!! Thanks everybody!! For the record, having a very good day!! Steve
  14. Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners

    Lew Didn't mean to ignore your WOWO question earlier, just spaced it. Yes, WOWO is still on the air but it's a much different format now. Everything is pretty much canned and talk radio. Steve
  15. Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners

    Good job again Lew! I am so excited about Cindy visiting our club and I hope anyone within driving distance realizes what an opportunity it is. I had already seen the business card video and it is definitely worth watching. That's a perfect project for the fall art/craft show season. Steve
