  1. Bradford Pear NE

    From the album Bowls and Platters

    Curly Bradford pear natural edge
  2. Burl's (wet or dry?)

    For a burl, is it best to turn it dry or wet? I have a friend who has access to Burl's on her own property, she would like to know from turners if you like them wet or dry, or somewhere between.
  3. Log to a Vase!

    I knew I wasn't loco! So folks do take a log and turn it into a vase!
  4. Where it was This topic is long over due, my family and I went to the San Diego County Fair this past July 2nd as we do most every year, and we had a blast. Like any county fair, it is chock full of rides, summer crowds, farm animals, monster truck races, and huge portions of the deep fried and barbecued food. It was a neat time. The San Diego County Fair, formerly known as the Del Mar Fair, is held each summer the three weeks leading up to the 4th of July, then on the 4th of July, they have a grand finale fireworks show. The fair grounds is less than a half mile from the ocean, so we get the wonderful ocean breeze all day and into the night, when it actually chills down a bit to a refreshing summer night. We rolled in around 10 am and we left the fair grounds an hour before sunset. We had planned on having a light lunch at the fair, wife and I split a sausage sandwich, and the kids shared some food too. Our plan was to have dinner after our day at the fair, at some place reasonable in cost. The fair food is expensive! And we did, after the fair, we ended up at Fletcher Cove, and we hit the Subway Sandwich shop and took our sandwiches to go, to the beach, and sat and ate and watched the sun go down. It was a perfect way to end the day, and it was a perfect fresh meal to counteract the grease we ate earlier at the fair. Me and Mrs. Morris end of day after the fair, our kids took this image, pretty cool, the evening was beautiful. At the fair Of course among all the other activities that go on at the fair, there is one exhibit that I look forward too, each year Fine Woodworkers Association Design in Wood Exhibition features local woodworkers and their work in one big building. Each year I am in awe of everything that is there. The work is inspiring, humbling, and just flat out fun to see. I'll post the images here, without explanation, and I'll let you all come up with your own captions in your own head. The following images are a fraction of the work that was actually there, I tried to get an overall collection of images with you all in my mind, I wanted there to be something for everyone here. Have fun! The following images is from a separate exhibit of wood work by local high school students and the Palomar School of Woodworking. And what fair is complete without the Monster Truck and Pee Wee races! Hope ya had fun looking at our fair pictures!
  5. Curly maple platter

    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.
  6. Flower

    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.
  7. BOC in red

    From the album Hollow Forms

    Beads of Courage bowl dyed with Chestnut Stains (red, yellow and touch of green) on pecan bowl
  8. Multi Color vase

    From the album Hollow Forms

    Large vase of Popcorn tree dyed with Chestnut Stains using airbrush.
  9. Bed from a (few) boards

    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.
  10. Cremation Urn

    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.

  12. 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.

  13. New colors

    Did some color work on Beads of Courage bowls. Wood is pecan and it was almost white so adding color.
  14. Ornament stand

    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.
  15. BOC bowl

    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

  17. Platter

    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.
  18. How used to be done

    @lew Here is one for the weekly post. Old tools and using a screw chuck too.

  20. 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!
  21. A wooden easter egg.

    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
  22. muscle tree with spalting

    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.
  23. Hey Dan!

    Are these some of the yo-yos you made? Steve
  24. Bishopwood

    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.
  25. Kururin Toy

    Saw this in the AAW Forum and going to try it today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ_oxNaSLyk
