My Clubs and Organizations

  1. I had a small piece of Bradford Pear given to me. I made this small bowl 5.5 inches by 1.5 inches.
  2. I got on face book the other day and saw that my nephew had mentioned me in a comment. Well, he had replied to a guy wanting a wood turner to make some carvers mallets for him. The guy said he would supply the wood. Since my name had already been mentioned I sent the guy a PM and we hooked up. All I can say is WOW! This guy lives about a mile from me and I have never met him, may have seen him at a festival before but that's it. He is a hardwood carver and very accomplished. I was able to get three mallets out of the wood he provided. Waiting for him to check handle diameter before I finish this one. Osage Orange, very distinctive color. Hard, but even so it cuts pretty nicely. Larry's work. http://www.decatursculpturetour.com/artist/doc - lawrence a.-wiedman, phd/14

    Eucalyptus Vase

    From the album: Hollow Forms

    Eucalyptus has a story. This is the regular side on the other side iot is spalted. Was working on this and I left in a plastic bag and the down side spalted but not the top.
  4. I am getting bored beyond tolerance routering those ceiling tiles. At end of day I decided to put a chunk of firewood on the lathe and turn something. It turned out a mallet. Something about turning that soothes the nerves. Paul
  5. Inspired by last weeks Wisdom for Woodturners post I made a hinged box. I watched Mike Waldt's video and remembered I had harvested some of those hinges from trinkets purchased at the Restore with plans to use them someday. The hinge sets are cheap when purchased this way since the price for one of the trinkets is usually around $0.50 at the Restore. I collected them together and hadn't realized how many I had acquired until they were all in one place. The nick in the lid makes room for the hasp. I filed the bottom of the hasp flat and didn't have to cut out the bottom piece.
  6. Learning to turn can be intimidating, more so (I suspect) when you don't have anyone local to turn to for advice. So I come here and glean what I can. This is my latest endeavor....another not-very-big-deal, but a handle for a parting tool. The shank is installed with a combination of epoxy in the bottom of the hole and a slit cut in the end under the ferrule. The victory in this is that the hole is aligned with the handle. I had managed to work out a method for this with a screwdriver, and this is another attept (that worked). Anyway, the handle is loosely styled like a Henry Taylor chisel I have and this was actually just puttering around. Since I was just puttering, I tried the burned rings that Dan described in another post. It's hard maple, and if it falls apart I still have the OEM handle to put it in. I did give it a couple of coats of wiping varnish. Forgot to mention, one big screwup was that my tenon for the ferrule isn't long enough, it's too short by almost 1/8"! I think I can get my tubing cutter and shorten the ferrule to the tenon length.
  7. My current putzing around project with the lathe is to make a handle for a lathe chisel (parting tool, to be specific). So the shank of the chisel is 1/2" and so is (presumably) my hole for it. The chisel is a sort of slip-fit, it slides in without undue pressure and I have a collar for it once finished (1/2 of a 3/4" copper union). The collar will be a very tight fit, but I'm wondering about how tight the shank should fit in the hole. Maybe you're supposed to put a little epoxy on it when inserted??? Or do i need to try and get a tighter fit?
  8. My neighbor lady is going thru cancer treatments and it is a very exhausting, prolonged process. I thought I'd make her an ornament to cheer her up. She always loved the deep red color woods. I made this one out of Blood wood and a bit of Yellow Heart.
  9. Rough turned oak crotch. .40
  10. I haven't had much lathe time for a while. Between honey dos and lawn work, most of my time is out of the shop. Today the temperature dropped down to a comfortable 70 (instead of 100+) and I spent some time on an ornament. I used some Yellow heart and acrylic, then started turning. I have to cut slowly with acrylic to avoid the small chips that can occur. Maybe there is a secret to avoid that issue, I haven't found it. Anyway I enjoyed creating another one.
  11. Off to the races with turning my first vessel. It took a lot longer than it should have and I made plenty of mistakes but I had fun with it. Didn't really have a plan going in and just let the design suggest itself. Wood is European Beech. Used a coat of shellac as a sanding sealer and it's been sanded to 320 so far. Still need to reverse and get rid of the tenon. .40
  12. I finished this Curley maple vase. It stands about 11 inches tall. I sanded it to 12000 grit, then hit it with triple e and the final finish was Aussie Oil. Once I finished this, it gave me an idea that I may try for another vase....
  13. Yesterday it was chilly, but the sun was shining in my shop (garage) I cleaned up the place and in the process, I picked up every scrap piece of exotic wood I could find. Some are left overs, some are old projects I stopped and the rest are odds and ends. I will make something out of most of it and I hope to get some more wood soon. I don't go out to shop much, but I do go when the crowd isn't there, very early in the morning on a week day. I go pick what I want and get out quickly. I can order wood delivered, but I want to see what I buy first. I have all my Christmas gifts made, so I think that if the weather holds up, I'll go after Christmas or New Years.
  14. I was goofing around today with some scrap wood and decided to make an effort at turning a spoon. I had some ideas how I was going to do it. I decided that the crude spoon I made was not something I'd be proud of. It isn't glued or finished and it is as far as it is going to go. I've seen some guys on youtube make spoons with elaborate jigs that required a lot of time and set up. All I could think of was,"Wood spoons are cheap, so why make one" I now know what a challenge it is. After making this one, I have ideas on better methods, but this is most likely the only one I'll ever make. I enjoyed it and it helped another day in isolation
  15. Three more segmented ply birdhouse ornaments. Probably the last of these for a bit.
  16. I have made dozens of segmented plywood Christmas globes for ornaments but had never done a birdhouse ornament with segmented plywood. I like the idea but this one is a little clunky I think. Will have to explore this further!!
  17. These are all Indiana hardwoods, walnut, maple, spalted beech, and cherry. May even be a piece of ash in there.
  18. Need a big coffee mug I can carve on. I have measurements. Wondering about the cost and feasibility. Thanks 😊!!
  19. This is a cookie jar I turned from a chunk of pine I purchased in Big Bear. We took a family vacation and I bought a few chunks of pine and I'm turning bowls and boxes for evry family that was there.
  20. This is the one that is off center and has some really bad places in it. I think my wife made, it At least she wouldn't let me toss it. The main body is pine and it did everything you wouldn't want to happen. I used pine because I was experimenting and did't want to waste good wood. The inside is painted black to cover all the tare outs inside. It also broke in two pieces. I guess as long as she likes it.......its ok.
  21. I turned this a long time ago. A friend gave me a piece of wood he retrieved from an old train depot that was being torn down. It was over 100 years old. It looked like it had some interesting grain patterns. I cut it up to glue it and was very surprised, it still had sap in it. I doubted it was that old, but was told than the yellow pine does that?????? Anyway I think I used gorilla glue to glue it because it will set in something like that. It did come kinda nice. Still wonder about it.
  22. This is my latest attempt at an off-center turning to produce an oval shaped tool handle. This was done out of ash. Be kind, I am still learning, as can plainly be seen.
  23. I turned this Curley maple bowl, two small bowls made from cherry and a small walnut vase for a friend that I served with in Vietnam. I burned the edge of the Curley maple bowl...started by accident, but thought it looked good.
  24. As usual the projects piled up right before Xmas and I didn’t get to a couple of turnings for presents. This is a pie stand. I ordered the glass rounds a long time ago and keep a few around the shop for making quick presents. If I have the blank glued up I will sometimes turn them while visitors are here. I have found visitors love to watch the turning process and these only take about an hour start to finish so they are perfect. They also use up the small leftovers of wood. This one is African mahogany scraps. The glass I get on the internet. They need to be tempered but that’s about the only requirement. The non beveled 14” are only a few dollars each. The beveled I use for special friends and run about $45. This one is for my neighbor. Paul
  25. I have a reasonably decent lathe that I bought most of ten years ago and am ashamed by how little it really gets used. I do like to get it out and tinker with it every now and again, usually around Christmas when I have some time off of work. I made some of these last year for the house and they were well received so decided to take another crack at some multi-species snowmen perhaps for a few gifts this year. Included here are Red Cedar, Ash, Mahogany, Hickory, Mulberry, and Walnut plus whatever the ink dyed toothpicks are made from. I used a mix of finishinG techniques. I claim only to be a rudimentary “woodhack” turner but the skills are improving and these are good practice and a bit of Holiday fun!
