  3. I'm a jig junky. That's really neat idea!
  4. Thinking about building an Ark.
  5. Thanks
  6. Not many of the Greatest Generation left. So sad
  7. Awesome Build!! I really like the addition of the addition of the accessible power and USB ports. That's a super handy idea! Nice dual monitor mount, too!
  8. That is fantastic! Did you crimp the bullet in place?

    Japanese Marking Knives

    Very Cool! Looks like there are both left and right side knives.
  10. I like this! The Sketchup Users Forum utilizes this. It's really nice, especially if there are participants that you regularly look to for input. Thank, John!
  11. @Woodbutcherbynight Thanks! It rains here every day, or so it seems! @Gerald Thank You! That handle looks really nice! @HandyDan Thanks! @Steve Krumanaker Thank You! And, thanks for posting your videos, I really enjoy them.
  12. Latest edition of Woodturning Monthly is now available. Read it here- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email
  13. Our resident YouTube super star has posted videos of his walking stick creation. This 3 part epic shows us how he turned the handle as well as all the other parts. Thanks @Steve Krumanaker for making this available!
  14. Past couple of days have been beautiful here in South Central PA. Too nice to even get into the shop. Fortunately, our turners have been busy. Our Patriot Turners- @Bob Hodge asked a question about a root ball he received. Please take a moment to check out Bob's post and see if you can offer any suggestions. @Gerald continues with his collection plate project. He showed us of his recent wood gathering expedition. Gerald also posed a question to our group about their ideas on using a reversing adapter to assist in truing up the bowl blank. If anyone can give him some ideas, I'm sure he will appreciate it. What’s Coming Up- The AAW Raleigh Woodturning Symposium is coming up soon! Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- Cap't Eddie posted a nice little project that would be perfect for the seamstress in your life. The turning makes a nice transition project from spindle turning into small bowl turning. Expand Your Horizons- Mike peace has done a video on stabilizing wood. He takes us through the process and even some modifications of his vacuum chamber. Be sure to read the comments left by some of the viewers for additional useful information. New Turning Items- In the past, if you wanted to purchase the Yorkshire Grit/Hampshire Sheen products here in the states, there were very few sources. Spiracraft is now a distributor for these products. Brad McCalister, an Easy Wood Tools promoter, has his shop up and running! Check it out at- https://shop.spiracraft.com/product-category/wax-finishes-abrasive-pastes/ Everything Else- Living in the boonies, as I do, means a day trip to the nearest full-fledged woodworking store. A lot of purchases are made on line and often from Amazon. I use Amazon Smiles to support Home For Our Troops. I recently discovered that many of the more popular woodturners (YouTube turners) have their own Amazon "stores". If you make a purchase through their store portal, they receive a portion of the sale. If you use Amazon for your woodturning items, maybe consider helping them out. I'm sure there must be more but here's two- https://www.amazon.com/shop/thewoodshoptv https://www.amazon.com/shop/mikepeacewoodturning I posted this earlier as a separate item but in case you missed it, Easy Wood Tools are on sale from Craft Supplies USA. Check out the savings!! I'm sure @Jim from Easy Wood Tools will appreciate the business!!!!!!! http:// https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/t/131/Carbide-Insert-Turning-Tools?b=Easy-Wood-Tools&utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=sale&utm_campaign=19-may-ewt The latest Woodturning OnLine newsletter is available at- https://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php?edition=052019 I found the first video interesting- Sometime back, I experimented with a similar idea- Alumilite and wood shavings. No pressure pot or vacuum chamber but it came out pretty cool. Safe turning
  15. If it hasn't been sanded, I think I'd sand it down to the depth of the tearout but feather out the "divot" several inches, in all directions, to make it less noticable.
  16. +1 for what @Gerald said.
  17. Today, May 8, 2019 ONLY https://www.woodcraft.com/products/dust-connection-holiday-promo-box-o-fittings-woodriver
  18. Nice projects! Thanks for the heads up on the finish
