Nice Gerald.  I like the saw blade drying racks too.

Good eye Dan.  I missed that the first time around.

We are so lucky to have 2 of Gerald's beautiful bells hanging on the EWT Christmas tree.   They are wonderful and delicate pieces of art

Gerald, what kind of wood and did you turn these?  Great work and coloring.  Looking forward to the rest of the process.

These were from pew parts (poplar) that was left over from a project to raise money for the church from pews we replaced last year. The poplar does not turn as well as the bradford pear I did the rest with. I do not have pip pics, but is really simple. I found it easier to hollow first and sand inside. Then adapt the outside shape to the inside and gave a more stable piece to hollow. Then just shape the outside up to the button and sand outside. Burn in the lines and turn the button and part off.

     For hollowing I use a spindle gouge and make the cuts similar to hollowing a bowl as a push cut from rim to bottom . But can also use a scraping cut which will  needing more sanding.

Those are beautiful. I dunno if I’ll ever attempt to use the lathe feature of the Shopsmith, but you are motivating me me to try.

I knew I was saving those old blades for something. Your bells are just beautiful.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

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.
