    I've been considering options on what to do with them... they are approx 1-1/2" X 1-1/2" X 6" I would appreciate some ideas please. How many bottle stoppers do I really want to make? What about a Christmas ornament?

    Thanks Ron, they are beautiful, aren't they? My lathe gets picked up from the show Aug. 27th, so it should be back here in the shop the first week of Sept...... anxiously waiting! I'll definitely show you guys how they turn out. Hope I don't mess it up!

    Having Friends 'In the Business'

    Sometimes it really pays off to having so many good friends "in the business". I've been involved in the woodworking industry and have made many life-long friends over the past 35 years. Woodworkers for the most part are friendly and generous types in my experience. So I've been sitting on a piece of spalted maple for a very, very long time, waiting for the right project. We just introduced negative rake carbide cutters to our line here at EWT. I've honestly not been a big fan of turning resins / acrylics / man-made materials, always much preferred turning wood. When we tested these NR cutters I was very surprised what a difference they make in turning this man-made "stuff". So I finally found a great use for this piece of maple! I sent it off to my friend Heath Knuckles, and he transformed this piece of wood into some very cool hybrid blanks. If you are not familiar with Heath and his work, here is a link to one of his projects: So Heath took my piece of maple... and sent these back to me.... Now I just have to wait for my lathe to come back from a trade show to spin a few of these!

    Tubes Coming Out.

    Are you scratching up the brass tubes before gluing them in? If I understand the problem, this may be the solution. Scratch up the outside of the tubes with 80 or 100 grit sandpaper before gluing them in.

    Dan! How would you know? You have to try it first my friend.... then make up your mind. I get beautiful ribbons of wood and a very clean cut with this tool.

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!

Objective

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.

Volunteer

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.

Education

Logging

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.
