It's been a busy week for our turners here at the Patriot Woodworker!

 

Our Patriot Turners-

@HandyDan posted a fantastic tutorial on making an inside-out cross ornament-

@Ron Altier has been cranking out ornaments all week! His first set uses colored plywood-

@HandyDan was't just making ornaments this week. He has been creating more "bullet" pens from a couple of different caliber cartridges

Dan explains what he did to get these beauties finished.

 

 

@RustyFN turned a beautiful little lidded pot from a gorgeous selection of woods.

Rusty said he had a little trouble with the overall finish. Check his post and see what our turners had to say-

 

 

Rusty wasn't our only turner making small vessels. @Gerald used a couple of different species of spalted wood to come up with this awesome piece-

For The Newbies-

Mike Peace has a video covering many of his turning tips. Although a little longer than what he usually does, it is well worth the watch-

 

 

 

Expand Your Horizons-

Sometime the wood selected for a turning will speak for itself. Grain, color, defects can all help create that special piece. If the wood doesn't speak, or the turning needs to be more personalized, Carl Jacobson shows us how to add a photograph to the surface.
