My Clubs and Organizations

  1. I am still finding out how to turn the new colored/laminated wood. To make matters more complicated, I also used a piece of acrylic plastic from a discarded floor lamp It was a whole new experience for me with acrylic and turning the layered colors so they won't bleed color dust. I made so many adjustments that the final product looked NOTHING like it started to be. However I gained a ton of turning experience.
  2. Here is the first pen I have made from the surf gel blank. It was very hard and brittle but turned out well. Comments and such welcome.
  3. Well, I finished another one. It looks the way it does because it shaped itsself. After a small blow out and a complete break off, I managed to recoup and it looks like this. Rather than risk any more serious problems, I left it as is. It isn't all true or perfect, but no one but me knows
  4. When I made my first Celtic knot roller, the results were not as good as I liked. I didn't finish it and started again. Today in a thrift store I saw another cheese cutter and decided to use that old roller and make another one. It looks Ok for my first roller and could make a gift, I use one to make pizza dough and will try this one to see if the beveled end will make the crust easier. If not, I'll eat it anyway
  5. I started making Christmas tree ornaments several years ago. As I progressed they became more complicated. I really enjoy making them. My wife wanted them displayed so I just set up the display you see. She likes it, if she is happy, so am I. Nearly all of them are made of wood scraps from older larger projects. Most are exotic woods. The one picture by its self is the latest one. I finished it yesterday.
  6. I finished the rolling pin. It was suppose to be an experiment with plywood and I used some soft wood from my scrap pile. I was amazed that it came out so well, even tho it don't have quality wood in it. I made some errors, the handles are too large, but they are free wheeling. The roller could have been larger in diameter, but it was NOT my intention to make a finished product out of it. Anyway, it looks pretty cool and it will be a gift.
  7. I was surprised how well it came out. Surprisingly, none of the plywood had any gaps. All the wood was scrap wood that I glued up to try this. I don't have plans for it, could be a rolling pin. For now it will sit there until I have a brain fart for a project
  8. I found a piece of three quarters plywood and it had no gaps and looked like a top grade piece. I got to wondering if I could turn this piece into a celtic knot. After a lot of cutting and gluing, here is what I have. Any guesses how it will turn?
  9. I managed to find 2 more cheese cutters and convert them into pizza dough rollers. Most are tapered but I am trying a straight one. They are Walnut, Maple and Yellow Hart pizza rollers.MOV
  10. Here are the potato mashers I made this past weekend. they are turned from hard maple and styled after an antique one I found at a rummage sale.

  12. Hi all, the last couple of days I have had time to put on the lathe and actually get something done. So I decided that I would do a few of these perfume applicators that I had not done before. I hear that in some areas they can be pretty hot sellers too so we'll see how it goes. The first one is made from Buckeye burl Then one done in Bocote. The lids can be a bit of a pain to put together because they are so small, not much bigger than a dime. I had to put a block of wood between the applicator lid and the press rod so that they would have enough length to reach the lid. Thanks for looking
  13. Just finished this rolling pin for my wife. I used curly Maple and Walnut. The design didn't come out as I wanted but it is really neat and she loves it
  14. I made this ornament today and liked the method so well that I am planning another one soon. That is Curly Maple and Padauk
  15. After looking at Lew's Posts and some youtube video, I made my first Celtic knot I used soft pine and cedar to see how it would look and to make it as easy as possible. I knew there was an 50/50 chance I would mess it up by one wrong cut and sure enough I did. I turned it anyway to see the look it presents. It is really nice and I will try a soft wood one again soon. Only when I have a good technique will I use good wood
  16. My new trick. Have never tried it, but it can’t be worse than rapid drying and cracks. I turned that honkin’ maple crotch rough, I’m at bowl depth so I won’t be going deeper but the walls are like 1.5†thicker than they need to be in places. But it’s supper time and I gotta close up. So I grab some water (I have been wetting the surfaces down during the day just to prevent rapid drying) and a rag and some saw shavings and a roll of plastic wrap. I wet the outside and wrap it in plastic wrap. I wet the inside and stuff a pie of shavings in there upon which I plop a wet rag. Then I plastic wrap the opening of the bowl and tap it all in place and then I wrap the whole mess in a black plastic trash bag. Tomorrow will tell the tale

  21. I am still working on the same project. That is making a complete set of ergonomic crochet hooks. I am also working on figuring out how to navigate the our newly reconstructed web site. So far, well, may be so not good with the web site. If I was much younger, I would figure it out really quick. But if I was much younger, I couldn't do what I do with wood. ANY WAY................... I am working on completing a 12 piece ergonomical set of hooks. I have 5 left to do. I am hoping like hockey sticks that I can get things figured out enough to post a picture of them. My wife knew about this project, they had to be sized to fit her hand and feel good when she used them and she said that it did. So, Sunday finished the two stands and gave all to her. It was also our 46th anniversary
