  1. Clewes did not make it so we had our own turning two weeks ago. Finically got thru with the finish work. Dyed with yellow and royal blue in Chestnut stains alcohol base. Back is shellac sealed and then Watco. Rubbed out with Mcguiar's rubbing cod and polishing cod. Then Renaissance wax.
  2. Been wanting to do tulips for a while but instead of cutting the notch ahead wanted to turn thin and carve them. You could say this is a prototype as I plan to mak some changes such as smaller petals. The dye does not do well in pecan. But it is passable.
  3. From the album Hollow Forms

    Beads of Courage bowl dyed with Chestnut Stains (red, yellow and touch of green) on pecan bowl
  4. From the album Hollow Forms

    Large vase of Popcorn tree dyed with Chestnut Stains using airbrush.
  5. Have to start with a glue up . Did not think I could find 6 x 6 dry pine so here we go with 3 pieces of 2 x 6. Tried to get the knots toward the surface outer edges as these would be turned off. Remember you can never have too many clamps After squaring the blanks on table saw we will need a centered hole to assemble the two parts of the post as this lathe is not long enough to turn as one piece. Having that hole creates a stabilization problem for turning which is solved by using a cone center in the tailstock. The left picture is the fluting jig cutting the upper post . The right picture shows a closer look at the the jig cutting the post. These are the finished post parts with fluting done on one. Right picture shows the connection for the parts of the post. This round turning and finial go on top of the headboard and footboard. This shows the incomplete mortise and tenon to join the posts to foot and head boards. The raised panels are installed and at this point are prestained. The complete project. Not exact but a close similarity to a bed we lost when our house was flooded over 30 years ago.
  6. I have been dreading doing this project but I got through it. I have made cremation urns before but never for a close family member and never turned one on the lathe. My nephew was a good man and sadly has left this world much too soon. There are three urns here. My sister wanted to bury the cremains. His significant other and his brother wanted some to remember him by? I was honored/tasked with the project and obliged them. My sister gets the one on the left, his significant other gets the one on the right and his brother just wanted something small and gets the one in the middle. He was an organ donor and a small bronze plaque was given with the remains saying so. I set it in to the top of the one going to my sister. This is the project I needed the Easy Wood Hollower for and it did a fine job.

Please download Easy Wood Tool's latest digital catalogue attached below. EWT-catalog-4_18.2017.pdf
  8. I have watched this episode many times and I still love it. About a minute in is when the spotlight on the Moulthrop family begins, and what a family! I am amazed at the turnings the patriarch of the family created, and the younger is an absolute genus with his turnings. My favorite is the sticks in the bucket with epoxy he does, then turns the blanks to create these incredible multiple species turnings. Take a look at the video, and have fun.

  9. Did some color work on Beads of Courage bowls. Wood is pecan and it was almost white so adding color.
  10. Saw this in American Woodturners and had to try it. It is really easy to do except bending the wire to get even curve. You can cut at any angle you feel comfortable with , just be sure to sand farther down than the cut. You will have to hand sand the bottom. By the way drill for the wire before cut.
  11. Working on beads of courage bowls. Turned in Bradford pear, cherry, and pecan. With 8 in progress turned the bottom off one and went thru. Had put in firewood pile after I tried to remount to square bottom for glueing a piece on. Came off and split so that one will get a new carving idea. This is a top turned from one piece This is before bottom came out

I have had various phone calls and email interactions with the folks at Easy Wood Tools, and each phone call I had came with a question from Easy Wood Tools, "What can we do for The Patriot Woodworker's and our veterans?". Easy Wood Tools, from the days of Craig and Donna Jackson, to the days of Chris Caliendo and @Jim from Easy Wood Tools , there has been a common thread in their philosophy, support American Labor, Support our Veterans, and Support The Patriot Woodworker's. We are honored to have such a great American company with us. Without our sponsors Easy Wood Tools and our additional main sponsors, we could not stay live as a woodworking community.

  13. This is a platter from cherry crotch working on for DIL birthday. Had to show both sides with the flame. Only 2 coats Watco on now.
  14. @lew Here is one for the weekly post. Old tools and using a screw chuck too.
  15. @Joe Candrilli has decided to go blogging! Way to go Joe! The blog area is a wonderful useful tool to show your story, and for a place to know that your story will not be lost in the archives of the forums, the blogs will last and last! I personally look forward to reading Joe's entries as he works, thanks for taking advantage of an often overlooked feature of our community Joe, the blogs!
  16. I'd like to throw a question out to ya'll. What suggestions would you have for a turner who is working out of a small apartment, and needs to keep that apartment and his lungs clean of dust and particles during turning? Any and all ideas are welcome, the more creative the better!
  17. The boss asked me if I could make her an egg tea light in time for Easter. So, I took a break from the dippers and did this over the last few days. Overall I'm happy with it, the narrow end is a little fat but not to bad and she loves it so that's ok. It was my thought to put "He is risen" or just "Risen" on the back but just couldn't make it look right to me eye. It was also my original thought to stipple the "halos" but I'm so glad I waited as I like them the way they are. The egg itself is maple and the base is spalted beech. Thanks for looking!! Steve
  18. My neighbor was cutting up a muscle tree which had fallen in the woods some time back and i noticed that it had a fair size chunk at the base and appeared to be spalted. I thought maybe someone would be interested in trying to turn this (I have no lathe)... so here are the pictures...if you're interested i can probably meet you somewhere in NE ohio to deliver it... too heavy to mail.
  19. Are these some of the yo-yos you made? Steve
  20. Did a little turning to finish. Got this bishop wood at AAW symposium in June. This really turned well. Had some minor cracks that went accross grain lines, have never seen that.
  21. Saw this in the AAW Forum and going to try it today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ_oxNaSLyk
  22. When I was turning some of those Easter eggs, I did find out one thing about Hickory wood. It is listed as one of America's hardest woods and therefore I figured a good candidate for the chatter/stutter tool. Not so much, at least for the Hickory I got at HD. Having never used it before, I didn't know what to expect. It was hard but the more open grain in between the hard grain.........tore out easily. I don't know if it is a trait of Hickory or it was just the piece I got. The Maple reacted much better to the chatter tools. Anyone ever turn Hicklory?
  23. It weren't cheap. It were expend-O-lisious
  24. Squared up a blank for a rear rocker leg and backrest, and chucked it up on our Laguna 16/43 lathe. I have a home made long tool rest I made that works wonderful. Then I noticed my son standing around, this was last night, he knows better than to stand around me. He also knows better than to say "I'm bored" the word "bored" is a bad 5 letter word in our world, but sometimes the kids slip up and say it anyway. This time, he did not say "I'm bored" but he was idle, so I put him to work. I showed him the basics, and safety, and I told him "it's all yours buddy" and he took it! He's using an Easy Wood Tools Mid Size Rougher. A great solid tool, easy for sure! After he roughed it out, I took over and brought it to finish. The right end is the top with a tenon for a pillow rail. I have two of these made and they are headed for steam bending next. Go Pats!!!!!!!!
  25. From the album Shaker Furniture

    Soon after I had the blank in the lathe, my son walked in and I put him to work on roughing out the blank, he did a pretty nice jog for his first time.
