    Red oak

    Gorgeous! Love the grain pattern and the color. Nice save on the crack!!
  2. Awesome tutorial, Thanks! And, thanks for the diagram on the router base, too!
  3. It was just a made up name for a mixture of beeswax and mineral oil (4:1 oil/wax). Heated in the microwave until the wax melts. Stir, let cool and use it as a finish or to lub screws or to wax tools. As far as the pen press, I stole the idea from a YouTube video and made some adaptations. In the video the press is around 4:58 minutes. I can take more pix and measurement if you want.

    I Like That!!
  9. @Woodbutcherbynight Thanks! @Gerald Thank You! @FlGatorwood Thanks! Glad to hear your are feeling better!
  10. Thanks. I received this one. Must have been a glitch. I found my computer did an upgrade last nite. Maybe that was it.
  11. I noticed this morning that I wasn't getting any email notifications. Looks like it started last nite around midnite. Checked spam folder and they are not there either.
  12. Our Patriot Turners- @FlGatorwood gave us a heads up about a new "OneWay" lathe that can be used while sitting. Several of our turners have devised their own methods of using a lathe in a sitting position. Check out Steve's post for the link to the lathe and some of the comments and ideas our turners offered- By the way, @FlGatorwood is feeling a little under the weather lately, How about we all send him some positive thoughts and good cheer! @Gerald posted a new topic in the turners tip section. If you have considered textured embellishments, check out Gerald's tip- What’s Coming Up- A reminder that the Mid Atlantic Woodturning Symposium is getting closer- Click on the image for a link to the presenters and their rotation! For The Newbies- Your new lathe came with a "knock-out bar". It probably works great for the manufacturer's supplied equipment. However, as you upgrade to newer accessories, you might find the bar leaves a little to be desired. Mike Peace has a nice video on making a better bar- Expand Your Horizons- Tim Yoder has a 2 part video on turning a thin walled Maldrone bowl. The first part of the video is filled with great tips on prepping this special wood (the second part is linked from Tim's YouTube channel)- New Turning Items- Carl Jacobson posted a YouTube video demonstrating some new turning accessories. I think we mentioned the magnetic light a while back but here's your chance to see it in action! Everything Else- The AAW is making available another free download of one of their recent magazine issues. Follow this link for your free download- https://www.woodturner.org/page/FundamentalsSpecialCompIssue Rick Turns has his July woodturning videos list from YouTube available- Safe turning

    Knee replacement

    Prayers sent to Elly and you. Hoping for a speedy recovery.
  14. My neighbor was a machinist by trade. He loved steam engines and similar stuff. I saw my first "hit and miss" engine in his garage. Really neat the way they run.
  15. Those tools are just too beautiful to use!

    It's birthday time

    Happy B-Day!
  17. @HandyDan Thank You! I have a couple of those, too. Might give them a try. @Gerald Thanks! I'll probably never learn when enough is enough! @Woodbutcherbynight Thank You! Hope you don't have to wait that long! @FlGatorwood Thanks! Yeah, that's another one of Ron's mystical glue-ups!
  18. Thanks, Gerald! The texturing tool can now be located at- https://www.woodworkingshop.com/product/sz00027/
