Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners June 25 2014

Recommended Posts

A lot of wood working this week but nothing on the lathe. As I mentioned before, the ongoing bathroom project has taken priority.

The "Old Jail Pens" project is moving forward. The check arrived so we will be ordering at least 100 pen kits this week and I still need to make another pen presentation box.

I found a couple of woodturning blogs, in a link, from one of my Twitter contacts. These are short reads but have some useful information.

This one has some stuff about bowl turning-

Shallow Woodturned Bowl


One on the importance of tool sharpening-

Sharpened Chisel


And a link to the author of the posts


Finally, the latest issue of Shop Notes (Vol/ 23 Issue 136) has an article on lathe chucks. If you are thinking about purchasing one, you might want to check it out!

Safe Turning!

Very much appreciate these links.

The info about what happened to Lynne is here:

I had heard about that but never read the details.

Take me to the Brig. I want to see the real Marines.

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!


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.


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.



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.
