  1. Easy Wood Tool Contest!

    I found this on Facebook. If you have a FaceBook account check it out- https://www.facebook.com/EasyWoodTools/photos/a.305274012822515.95517.296127457070504/1968972016452698/?type=3&theater
  2. First bowl

    Nice looking bowl Tom. I remember chasing my first bowl across the shop a couple times after a bad catch. Be sure to post it in the Turning Forum. We could use the extra traffic over there Had to do a copy and paste of a comment by HandyDan from the Woodworking forum, since I didn't know how to quote and migrate to another forum. Good suggestion Dan, here it is. The title is a little misleading, as my really first bowl wound up in pieces in the trash can. This is the bowl I turned at the basic bowl turning class I went to at the Woodcraft store in Tulsa. I picked up a mid size EWT rougher there also, and am anxious to put together a blank and try it out. The wood is Sycamore, finished with a coat of sanding sealer, and a coat of high friction polish. I didn't know there was such a thing until I took the class.
  3. Turning class

    I finally go to go to the Learn to Turn class at the Tulsa Woodcraft. Got lost going through Tulsa, though. Too much construction, and the road signs didn't correspond with Google maps. Got to the class an hour late, but they were very gracious about that. Got credit for the class, which is a pre-requisite for the Beginning Bowl Turning class, which is next Saturday. Now that I know the route, getting there from Wichita will be a lot easier. I came back from the class with two big take-aways. First, I brought home a basic bowl, next Saturday will be ! more in depth, and second, Easy Wood Tools are kick-arse!. My first experience with them. The wood used was poplar, which was pretty easy to work with. My only other experience with trying (emphasis on the trying) to turn a bowl ended up with pieces of maple spread around my lathe on the floor. Major fail. Going to have to save up some money, though, those tools aren't cheap. Good quality usually isn't. Which brings up a question. Which one first? I assume a rougher is first, but what size would be best? I see from their web site that they have more than one rougher.
  4. Oh boy where to start? I wish I could keep them all! All the tools in the kit were very comfortable to use and they fit wonderfully in my hand. the finish on the handles was so flawless I was afraid to set them down and risk scratching them. The easy finisher, I found the easy finisher to be great for cutting coves and curves. I was challenged when I tried to use it for smoothing a cylindrical turning, I usually wound up creating a spiral pattern in the piece that took a bit of sanding to smooth out. If I had taken the time to watch the DVD and practice I probably would've been more successful using it. it was very easy to use and cut cleanly. I found this tool to be very useful and feel it is a good fit for my turning skill level and projects The Easy Detailer, I wish the detailer had a sharp point instead of the rounded tip. I think the sharp point would make it easier to cut fine details and sharp grooves. I used it to cut a slight cove in the end grain of a bottle stopper and it worked for this task, however I do think I could've made the same cut with the finisher tool. To be fair and give it other chances I used it to put some other details in turnings. While it worked for this and cut nice and clean I currently do not see a need to add it to my tool arsenal. To sum up my cutting tool reviews 2 out of 3 isn't bad. The 3rd was a good tool however it wasn't one I currently have a use for. Tomorrow or the next day I'll be reviewing my favorite, the Chuck!
  5. Oh boy where to start? I wish I could keep them all! All the tools in the kit were very comfortable to use and they fit wonderfully in my hand. the finish on the handles was so flawless I was afraid to set them down and risk scratching them The easy rougher, I used this to rough out a few rolling pins from 2.5" square hard maple, walnut , and cherry. I found that the tool chipped the hard corners when first starting the cut but soon smoothed out when the pin got closer to round. My preference for the initial rounding/roughing out step returned to my Sorby roughing gouge. When I used the Easy Wood rougher on stock that had the corners sawn off this wasn't as much of an issue. Where I liked the easy rougher was truing up the turning and tapering the ends of my pins. I did get a little tear-out on the walnut but a quick sanding (less than 30 seconds ) took care of that. I found this tool to be very useful and feel it is a good fit for my turning skill level and projects. reviews of the other tools will be coming over the next few days John
