  1. Something a bit different....as a way to use up a pile of scraps? One such pile. Have already sliced a couple of these scraps. I don't think the old 1/2" bandsaw blade will be of much use... Been a bit too beat up, lately.....I do have a 1/4" blade in the saw, right now.. Not really a new one, but it is at least...sharp. Maple tends to turn a bit brown. Cuts were a tad wavy. Motor at first didn't want to work this hard....and tried to shut down....until I pointed out to it, that the motor it replaced, was STILL in the shop...and YOU CAN BE REPLACED......motor started right up....imagine that Thought I could just jack plane these smooth....plane was a bit too big, for this job... The Stanley No. 3c that I had just rehabbed, happened to be sitting out, where I could grab it...seemed to do a decent enough job.. I even used it to joint a few edges... Got one looking decent enough as for width...needed trimmed on the ends for square, though.. Works for me. Got a few all the same width, mainly by bandsawing to width. was able to gang a bunch up.. Used the #3c again. to make them all the same width. Had two pieces, came from the same board.. Figured I could book-match these two into a panel for a lid....they needed a bit of work, one end being wider than the other end...bandsaw to correct that, plane to do the edges straight...try to make the grain as close as i could.. May need to add a bit, to get to the width I need. Set the thin stuff aside, for now.. These will be sawn down into 1" to1-1/2" wide strips....to make the frames to house those thin panels..had to set up a jig on the saw... Set for 1" width, for now....may go with the 1-1/2" instead....more to work with. Made a big mess today... May be about time to bring the trashcan back down to the shop? May need to do some glue-ups, and make some frames. Stay tuned...will see IF I can get this done, before next Tuesday morning...
  2. Hope I'm not wearing this out. Couldn't find an off the shelf stand to display the maple rocks bowl. They were either too light weight or hid too much of the bottom. I had an idea in mind but just wasn't happy with what I was doing. Spied a piece of gnarly cherry in my wood pile and started grinding on it. Here is the result. This is the piece of cherry, it's hard to tell from the picture but the bowl will sit in the little depression and it really looks pretty nice. I show it to my wife, she said she liked but it was a shame no one would see the underside because it was also very pretty. On a lark, I flipped the piece over and with just a little surgery the bowl sits very nicely there as well. Not especially happy with how the pictures show the bowl and stand but I hope you get the idea. From the underside of the bowl. For what it's worth. Wife told me if I have any more of those pieces I might to just make some of these to stand on their own. Steve
  3. Just finished this morning. I will say that I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. The rim is always a challenge for me as I'm never quite sure what to do with it. I had originally planned a herringbone pattern but nothing I drew looked right to me. It's about 12" diameter and not quite 5" deep. I'm sure I've posted this already but the design on the bottom is called "phicops in a circle" It's a zentangle pattern and the original author is Brad Harms-CZT Steve
  4. Our club meets this Sunday and I am doing the demo. Have decided on a fairly simple project from a video by Steve Jones . A seed starter pot maker. Many club members don't do demos and don't realize what goes into preparing for one. The demo I'm doing is "skew heavy". Steve Jones is a production turner from England the best I've ever seen with a skew. Even though I'm fairly adept with a skew I can't hold a candle to Steve. Even so, I want to do the demo using as many of his techniques as possible. With that in mind I have turned several pieces to get it down. This is maybe half of the ones I've done for practice. Add to that, transporting tools, materials, making notes, rehearsing, etc. etc. and doing a demo is a significant commitment in time and effort. On the other hand, I truly believe, the person doing the demo learns much more than anyone who watches it and the benefits far out weigh the inconveniences. Steve
  5. In the weekly thread for the woodworking agenda, I mentioned that i was working on bottle stoppers. Here's the one I am working on now, it had a cut in it so I am going to cut it off there, then finish shaping it. I also drilled the opposite end to make a second stopper, since this piece is so long. I see a few minor cracks, so i will fill those soon.
  6. I did a smaller version of this a while back, don't remember if I posted pictures or not. Anyway, this bowl is just over 12" diameter. LOTS of time invested and to be invested in this one. I really enjoy it though, the glass of wine and the view from the patio don't hurt either. This is done in layers at different heat settings. The first layer is done all around and most of the second as well. It will probably get at least two more layers at increased temperature before I do the rim pattern and finish the bottom. Steve
  7. Our woodturning club had an exchange challenge today. The idea is that members bring something they have turned, and exchange it with another member for something they have turned. I made a paper clip bowl out of maple and walnut. In the bottom are three rare earth magnets to keep the paper clips in the bowl as it gets slid around on the desk top. This turned out to be one of my learning experiences, aka mistakes, as I figured out halfway into the turning that I couldn't make a small bowl with a traditional curved bottom with a large chuck. Thus, the flared out bottom. Anyway, here's my project. Thanks for looking.
  8. Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve
  9. This is the second cryptex I've finished. I re wrote the border file and I like this look much better. This one is a five ring code as I'm going to use it for the demo at our next meeting of the NorthEast Indiana Turners and Chiselers(NEITC). Anyone care to guess what is the code?? The first one actually works smoother, I didn't dry fit the rings before gluing it up and I should have. Oh well, someone said in another thread, it's how we grow. Steve
  10. Yesterday, I got all the olive planed and dimensioned for the case pieces. Today, it the walnut and maple's turn. The walnut is really rough, twisted and/or cupped. I'm using a sled that I built in' 06 that was featured in FWW. Here is a link to a video of how it's made. It works very well. But, it's a heavy beast. Especially with a 5' long 10" wide 4/4 board on it. Several passes @1/32 have been necessary to get one flat side. Tires me out. Luckily, the maple is already flat. This case will be different than the last one. The lid and bottom will be oversized glued up slabs with bread board ends...At least that's the plan, now. They'll extend about 3/4" at each end and somewhere around 1 1/2" in front. Those parts will be curved from the mid point to each end. Designing on the fly is fraught with danger but, oh so much more fun. Once the pieces are all cut and assembled for a dry fit, I'll get some pics.
  11. This is my first cryptex and what a learning experience. It's really a pretty simple thing to make but dimensions are critical. I expect it will take two or three more before I get any I can use for gifts. I have to say I am thrilled at how well the rotary engraver worked once I got the pattern and spacing figured out. The rings have the alphabet on them but the code for each grand kid will be their birthday as it corresponds to the letters of the alphabet, won't tell them at first and see if one of them figures it out. I don't think they can guess it out as there are about 3 million combinations possible. I wasn't sure how long to make the barrels so I had to trim them off on the band saw, shouldn't be a problem on the next ones. From what I understand, these devices were used to transport sensitive messages. Supposedly the message would be written on parchment and a glass vial of vinegar was placed in with the message. A person couldn't break into the cryptex without breaking the vial which would dissolve the parchment. I don't know if all that's true but it makes a good story and these are kind of neat I think. FWIW, Carl Jacobson has three videos on making one of these and that's where I got the idea. Steve
  12. This is a piece for the project that lead to me first considering if I could build something like this to begin with. A rough guess would put this at probably 3 or 4 years from idea to this point. The rings will be for a project I've wanted to do for a long time but just didn't like any of the available options for the lettering. My hand wood burning skills are not up to the task for sure. Anyway, my plan is to make several of the project for Grand kid Christmas presents this year, each one will take six identical rings. That means I'll need close to 50 of these rings made. The one in the machine is a test/setup piece. The little laser is doing exactly what I envisioned. You may notice the "A" looks blurry, that's because I re targeted the laser to center the script. Now, I have a benchmark and subsequent rings will be right. The rings are about 2 1/2" in diameter and the burn area is 1/2" wide. Has everyone figured out what is the project? Steve
  13. I rough turned one of the bowl blanks. I am terrible at identifying types of wood. I'm sure some of you will know what it is.

  18. A little maple bowl about 8" diameter and a couple inches deep. Probably one of the very first bowls I turned to finish green. I wanted to try an idea for embellishing and dug this one out of the pile. I was trying to make it look like it could have, may have occurred naturally but not sure. Rattle can lacquer finish. Can't really tell from the pictures but it's got a nice little warp going on, it's about 3/4" longer than it is wide. Steve
  19. A maple bowl in kind of a tulip shape, 12" diameter and 4" deep. I thought about "framing" the pattern with some heavy shading around the edge, decided not to and just left it plain. I turned this to be functional so it has bees wax for a finish. Steve
  20. Well, looks like I may be coming up for air soon! Been since the beginning of August since I've done some serious work in my shop. I just finished cleaning up and making my shop look like a workable space, and I set my Curly Maple Shaker Rocker on the bench that I started 5 months ago. I'm feeling pretty good here. I have my shop back! Dogs are enjoying the space too. I will sleep good tonight, the world is right again! Happy dogs!
