  1. Blank prep

    This is what I have worked on since Tuesday . This is only two cut off a beech log about 20 foot long. Then there was little cherry and what we think may be hickory. Then I did a first turn on a cherry vase. Plan is to carve this vase to look like a flower bloom
  2. Longworth chuck

    I have never posted into this Wood Turners area, so I guess this is a first. A friend asked me to cut him a 16" Longworth chuck so today I tested my drawing that I did in Fusion 360 by cutting a 12" chuck. Looks like it came out just fine so I thought I would offer them in our Etsy shop. You can click on the link in my signature and see the offering but I didn't want to post a link like I was pushing it, just thought you lathe guys might want to see this - I used to turn a fair amount and still have my Oliver 8' bed lathe but it's not being used 'cause it's 3 phase and I don't have time to do any turning anyway. So if y'all see something in the Etsy listing that doesn't look right or that I have worded incorrectly I would appreciate a heads up. Thanks! David
  3. First box

    Made my first lidded box. It is salted maple. It is around 5.5 inches wide a 4 inches high. The only finish I put on was Shellawax.
  4. turned this today. will give it away.
  5. Segmented bowl

    I don't do turning, but have some friends that do. Here is a recent one that one top honors at the local Woodcraft store. In the last couple years, he's gotten into segmented turning and has some neat fixtures to help glue them up. The ghostly stool is a reflection in the glass display case.
  6. Made this today. Oak, cherry, lacewood and walnut, cherry, oak. Present for a friend. House warming gift for his new place.
  7. the leg was busted up too much and I could turn another one quicker than four or five times gluing all the pieces in. And will be stronger.. Piece of oak been stored in the shop for almost 20 years.. It was 3" x 3" and now after turning it down I noticed some weather cracks... Good ole oak , uck I'll probably run some 1/2 or 5/8" dowels cross those cracks.....before I put the chair back together
  8. Awesome Turning Video

    Didn't want to wait until Wednesday to share this. I spent a little time in Japan but only remember 2 words of the language.
  9. angel ornament

    One of my angel ornaments got damaged and I promised to make another one. This one I made smaller, about 3" and made more use of add ons.
  10. Faster drying

    I noticed today that the BOC bowls I rough turned seem to be drying much faster than usual. I know the air is dry even tho it has rained a lot. Earlier this week the RH in the shop was 35. Just wonder if anyone else had noticed this in colder weather?
  11. Got some done

    Finally got some turning done this week. Got five Beads of Courage bowls roughed in and now drying. What have you been turning?
  12. Natural edge (side)

    Started roughing a Beads of Courage Bowl and noticed that this blank may allow for a natural edge or bark on side , just an area about 2 inch wide by 3 to 4 long. Question is has anyone had good luck doing a bark side on a hollow form?
  13. Where's Our Turners!

    Hey turners! Where'd ya'all go! You know Lew gets lonely around here if you don't check in from time to time!
  14. Using wood waste to shine

    I was watching a video of a guy turning a pepper mill and he was sanding the turned piece. Then he did something I've never seen before. He grabbed some of his wood waste shavings and held it against his turning piece. He had already sanded it down to a very fine finish. I can't see this as being any more effective than very fine sandpaper or 0000 steel wool. I will try it................Do you use this technique?
  15. Demo prep

    Part of the turnings for tomorrow and Friday demo and sales at Ms AGmuseum.
  16. Ball and Cup Game

    Every year for the past five or so years at Christmas time I make a couple dozen ball and cup games. I take them over to the local Akron Children's Hospital and give them to the volunteers to pass out to the children who have the misfortune of being in the hospital at this time of year. I figure even if confined to the bed they may still be able to play the game. Here is this years batch completed today. I use pine 4X4s to make them but I buy the balls at Pat Catans craft supply store. They have three coats of Shellac on them.
  17. Santa"s Workshop

    Nice project. Might be fun to do someday.
  18. Wine Stoppers

    I was down at the Habitat Restore, my favorite store, and found a couple wine stoppers. They had glass studded hearts on top and a 50 cent price tag. I removed those and made a couple of turnings from Red Heart to replace them. These are for my sister, the nurse, as a thank you for being there for me when I needed it a few weeks ago. They have the super glue finish.
  19. Christmas 2017

    Well the gifts for friends and relatives are finished- unless Mimi adds someone to the list. A little unusual this year in that just about everyone is getting something different.
  20. Pecan dyed and gilt

    Here is one on the lathe today . Pecan turned with undercut , then dyed Chesney Stains Royal Blue , then applied gold golf cream.
  21. Tops

    These are the tops I am working on . Use clear acrylic an it darkened too much. The jewel is a Swarovski crystal.
  22. Crotch finish

    Turned this bradford pear crotch a couple months ago and just got started on second turn. Just wondering opinion on best finish to display grain .
  23. Club demo

    Have been turning at the MS Agriculture Museum with club members for two days and one more left. Hey I think I made 1970 min wage 2.33 /hr for three hr today. But it has been fun.
  24. Carbide turning tools

    When Rockler came out with their version of these tools, I'd never seen one before, I like the idea. I waited until they were on sale and got the set of 3 for small for mini lathes. I do use them a lot and like them. They have a lot of great qualities and can be rotated for another cutting surface. I also resharpen mine on a diamond hone. I do not have a parting tool with a carbide head. That may be my next purchase. I still use some of my HSS tool, but not much. If you were to rate the carbide cutting tools on a 1 to 10 scale (10 is tops) what would your rating be?
