    More ornaments

    That was a lot of work getting that much beautiful finish done. Question on the third pone from the bottom the finish seems to have a non matched line in it , was that a photo-graphical error?
  3. Nothing in the shop. Demoing at Ag Museum and I was only one there for a while , no one could find the key to the storage area where our lathe was locked up... took three people to find that. Then traffic was very ligh today. Going back tomorrow , maybe better.... at least no set up.

    turning Blue ply

    I do like the color of this one. You must have a bucket full of ply cutoffs.

    I want a lathe.

    Don , Like you said it can get expensive . I have 3 lathes and did get a bargain on one. Try looking on Craigs list and local tool sales on Facebook. You can also get into the FB turning groups and will see a few there. If you do not want to wait How much do you want to spend ? Then we could make a recommendation . I have a Delta 46-460 for demo use and it is great but not cheap. Another thing you could do is go to a local turning club and ask if anyone has a lathe for sale. There are two or three for sale in our club now. There are several clubs near you and the TAW has a symposium in Franklin in January you might want to look into.. I would stay away from HF lathes unless you do the research as Steve said they have had some duds. Jet and PM are safe bets . Not all Deltas are worth a boat anchor either. Hear good stuff about the Rikon Rusty got but that will not turn table legs, however they may have extensions for the bed (not cheap). If the posts get seem oll over the map it is a BIG and OPEN question. You did not ask but I do not recommend a full set of turning tools because you get tools you will not use and probably will be cheap tools too.

    Whats for Christmas

    Working on Christmas . Slight changes to my bells and angels. Wife said the base of the bells not wide enough so this is the result. so also widened the angel base. May even put jingle bells in them. So what Christmas item are you planning now?

    Tear out on an apple bowl

    Might try lacquer sanding sealer, then sand again
  15. John that is some bench. Must have taken 4 good men to move it , I know it would take that to move mine about the same size. Had a good club meeting Saturday after which I was wasted. Today plan to get the club computer out and update it and try out the new webcam setup. Then out to the shop to unpack tools from the weekend and do some turning for Christmas. Hope to get a sheet of 1/2 ply to do drawers for lathe storage this week. Could not believe they wanted $21 for 2x4 or 43 for full sheet, sounds like highway robbery.

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.
