  1. It's been a nice couple of days here, but winter is scheduled to return to the northeast tomorrow. Our turners have been busy with projects, ideas and questions. So let's get to it! Last week @HandyDan showed us a really neat way to created threaded inserts for turned objects. I happened across this site that sells brass metal inserts for that special project- They have many sizes. Their site is- https://www.fromwalnuttoantlers.com/shop @RustyFN posted a rough turned bowl he made. It sure is gorgeous! Rust wasn't certain of the wood species and several members offered opinions. Check out the complete thread- @Gerald got some turning blanks prepped and started on a vase. Nice laser rig! Read about his plans for his vase- @Steve Krumanaker gave us a demonstration of his shop made laser engraver. Talk about an awesome piece of equipment! Steve even included a video of the operation in his thread @Buck Nall posted a question about turning bradford pear wood. Several members offered suggestions. Check out his post and give Buck your opinion- @Gerald is considering setting up a stand in a consignment shop. He asked for thoughts and opinions on this. Stop over at his post and see if you can add to what has already been said- I was trying to catch up on some of Capt. Eddies' videos and he mentioned the Southwest Association of Turners turning symposium for this summer. It's in Waco Texas in August. Here's a link for more information- https://www.swaturners.org/index.php Also, our most generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools, will be part of the Woodworkers Show in Milwaukee, WI on March 9-11,2018. More information here- http://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/milwaukee.html Mike Peace put up an informative video on live centers. He looks at some of the characteristics and various vendor. Pretty interesting- Capt.Eddie did a similar review of a specific brand here- A while back, we featured Tim Yoder making a platter with a "cosmic paint" scheme. He recently posted a another platter but uses a different approach to applying the paint. While you are watching the video, check out the Easy Wood Chuck! Safe turning
  2. Temperature was in the 70's here the past two days but that's about to come to an end tonight. It was just too nice to do much in the shop. Just a heads up for those near Secaucus, NJ. Our most generous sponsor Easy Wood Tools will be at the Woodworking Show there- Click on the image for more details and ticket information. Last weeks "Wednesday's..." started a great discussion on pricing your work. @DAB asked about how we set the price on our turnings. Check out what our turners had to say. @Steve Krumanaker sent me a link for a fantastic turner named Virgil Leih. I had not known of him but I can say when he does something- he goes BIG! I really think you will enjoy watching what he does!! Thanks, Steve! @difalkner posted some Longworth Chuck plates he made There was a great discussion about the layout of the arcs. Read all of the information- @HandyDan came up with an inspired way to add treads to a project. You really need to see this tutorial! Read the complete step-by-step- @RustyFN posted some pictures of prepping a log into future bowl blanks He also received some advice about sealing the blanks to help slow down the cracking- @Gene Howe sent me a link to a turner and machinist. Gene was at a gathering of Arizona woodturners and Jerry Marcantel was demonstrating some of the turning devices he has developed. Here is a video from Jerry's YouTube channel. He has other videos there as well. Thanks, Gene!! This link is to his website- https://www.woodturnerstools.com/ . He has some beautiful turnings posted there. A short video from Mike Peace making a shaving brush. Not extremely difficult and would probably make a nice present for someone. Safe Turning
  3. had a giant blank warp

    got a couple huge hunks of wood a while back. Kept 'em in plastic. Turned one rough set aside to dry and the thing warped so badly that I am unsure that I have enough wood to take the warp out . I'm thinking of methods of re warping it back a little. Water hear band clamps an inner frame?? Any one tried doing this to save a blank?
  4. Acrylic

    Does anybody here make their own acrylic blanks? I have been doing a lot of research on resin, molds, vacuum chambers and pressure pots.

  6. I have made some surf gel pen blanks that are for sale for $12 each. I will normally cut them to 1 x 1 x 6 to allow for most any poen kit or kitless configuration. They are very colorful with layers of colored striations including solid and clear or translucent material. These cut well with sharp tools and polish well with wet sanding. Please check them out and tell me what you think. Blank A is approximately 5.5" Blank B is approximately 6" Blank C is approximately 7" Shipping is approxiamtely $7 Thak, Larry
