Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners July 13, 2022
lew posted a topic in Wood TurnersOK, we are getting close to the end of our summer fund raiser and we are seriously short of our goal. If you haven't donated, please consider helping our site stay alive. Our very generous sponsors have donated some awesome items as prizes. Please head on over to this post and donate. Every little bit helps! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald started catching up on some older projects and in the process did some cleaning- Part of Gerald's post was a challenge to our members to show us some of the unfinished projects we are procrastinating about completing! One of Gerald's projects to be finished up was a turned vase that cracked. Instead of the burn pit, Gerald used this as a chance to turn it into spectacular embellishments. In his post, he shows us his process- @RustyFN Finished up a gorgeous lidded box. Perfect glue-up and centered on the lathe. Made from two of my favorite woods. In his post, Rusty explains a little on how he mounted it on the lathe. What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for links to more information- For The Newbies- Another informative video in the series from Mike Peace- From the AAW, a video demonstrating a beautiful turning from shop scraps- Alan Stratton posted a video turning a bowl from start to finish. A couple of things of interest are his reason for not band sawing the blank round at the beginning and his thoughts on drying. Check out his faceplate jig for uneven surfaces! Expand Your Horizons- Watch Mike Waldt turn a beautiful, shallow mahogany bowl! Off-center and eccentric turning are similar but different. In this video, Carl Jacobson turns an eccentric goblet. Notice he does this without the aid of jigs. Cindy Drozda posted a short video demonstrating sphere turning- New Turning Items- From Craft Supplies USA, their new turning smocks- Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- Safe turning
AndrewB posted a topic in Wood TurnersBefore I tried bowls heavily, I started with an oak glue up and couldn't finish it because I was using a face plate at the time and didn't even have the right tools for the job or even a proper chuck for that matter. Now that I have the proper tools including the chuck I think its down right time to finish this one off. I had completely forgotten about this one doing a little bit of organizing in the shed/shop I found it tucked away. So I did a bit of turning on it evened it out and cut a tenon onto it. I had to straighten it up quite a bit because it was completely way out of whack but it should make for a nice piece in the long run. Should have a proper hss bowl gouge by Thursday so I should be able to fully hollow this thing out over the weekend. New bowl blanks arrive tomorrow so I think I'm set for a bit on that.
Lid has be glued up
steven newman posted a topic in General WoodworkingStumble down to the shop this morning. Raised panel needed fine tuned, before any glue was used. Spokeshave, and a couple other planes to reduce any "fat spots" along the beveled edges. Sandpaper on a block of wood to refine some spots.....finally thought I could spread some Elmer's, and dig out some clamps.. Square and a tape measure showed things weren't quite squared up, so that diagonal clamp to pull it back to square. Better view? That is the spokeshave I used. let this forest of clamps sit a awhile....... Ok, stumbled back down, and checked on the glued up lid. Started removing the clamps....slowly, listening for any weird sounds...Other than dropping one of the clamps...NADA, sooo.. Sat the glued up lid on top of the box, noting where the front and back sides were to go. Will add a filler to un-do that bowed in side. AFTER this has cured for awhile. More views? A few holes to fill in, about the way things go in my shop. Thinking of adding a "bead" just below and above the opening. Bead? Something like these two? Stanley #45 can make these thing fairly quickly. Just have to set the plane up to mill the beads. Now, I think I'll just go and sit down for a while.....and let the Elmer's cure out...
Time consuming glue up
Ron Altier posted a topic in Wood TurnersI got into my small scrap wood yesterday, there are some exotic pieces too. I glued, cut, glued, etc, until I had 8 squares, turned them into about 8 circles. Then cut some Yellow heart in pieces, glued them in between the others and turned it all down. When I turned this down it came out nice, however I was a bit disappointed at the results. I'll make a contrasting top and bottom for another ornament. You gotta have a LOT of patience to do that. One small miscue and it will have a flaw that you didn't see coming.
