    Pecan Salad Bowl

    Pecan bowl rough turned last fall.  It was too big for the soap bucket so I packed it away in it's own shavings until it was dry enough to turn the 2nd time.  Finished with Ack's and Odie's.           .40

    Beautiful late summer day here in south central PA.   Unless you are very new to woodturning, you probably have heard of "Cap'n Eddie"- Eddie Castelin.

A video he posted last week-       Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier upped his ornament game by refurbishing a windchime!   Ron explains about some of the wood he used on this upgrade in his post-     @Gene Howe gave us a

    Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style?

    • Hand saws…
      So the good thing that came out of my trip to Ohio was getting to poke around and find a few antique Disston saws.
      Started working on the oldest of them today.  This is a 26”, 7 TPI Curved-Back saw.  The curve is similar to a D-8 but the blade isn’t as tall.
      Saw is cleaned, straightened, and tensioned.  Waiting on files and a set tool to finish this up and put it back into use.
