  1. Time for another tip from Magnolia Woodturners . Many times the bandsaw will present problems on cutting blanks for the lathe so in this article are a few tips and how to to make that job easier and safer. http://www.woodcentral.com/cgi-bin/readarticle.pl?dir=turning&file=articles_750.shtml

    Alien

    From the album: Turnings

    Thought this one looked like something out of a star trek episode so named it the alien due to its organic shape specifically related to the finial. The hollow form is Cedar with turquoise inlay in the cracked and small voids. The headpiece or Finial is made of Bradford Pear and has turquoise inlay as well in a concentric pattern on each side which was all turned and hand carved. Size including the finial is around 14.5"x9.5". Hope you enjoy as much as I did making it.

  4. Forum of the American Woodturners Association provides opportunities to get answers to difficult questions and discuss possibilities in woodturning. Membership in AAW is not required but does have added benefits of posting more photos on the site.
  5. Latest edition of Woodturning Monthly is now available. Read it here- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email
  6. Moving along with the demo prep. Have two sticks completed and my demo routine pretty will figured out. I have to make one more stick to leave in component form and then probably a few components in different stages of completion in case of a severe catch or other catastrophe. I'd forgotten what a nice project this stick is. These two will eventually be gifted to a soon to be retired neighbor and his wife. Bruce is a good friend, and more importantly, a licensed electrician . He and I have helped each other back and forth for 30 years or more. It's always a good thing for him to owe me a favor! once a few more coats of oil are applied, the sticks get a 3/4" rubber cane tip on the bottom.
  7. Most everyone who visits this forum will know I have a youtube channel. For those who don't do videos I can tell you, one of the real rewards for a youtube author is when a person takes the time to comment and let the author know they liked the video. I've had some very positive comments and some, not so much. Well, I checked my channel this morning and saw this comment, from one Jasper Krumanaker. For the record, this is a gloat, this is a brag, and this is from a misty eyed proud PaPa. "I'm his grand child his work is amazing and so is him" Steve
  8. Our club meets this Sunday, I got demo duty. In the interest of spring, doing an easy spindle project. Garden dibbles. They're easy to do but also a good skill builder. Plan to spend a bit of time on rolling a bead and how important is getting the "V" notch right. Steve

DAB posted a sweet cherry bowl- And Woodbutcherbynight is preparing a nice looking hand wheel for a project- @Steve Krumanaker is preparing for a demonstration he will be giving to the woodturning club to which he belongs. One of the turning items he will show is a "Knitting Nancy". Steve describes his preparation and topics in his post- @Gerald continues to keep us up-to-date with his new off-center lathe chuck. Gerald talks about which lathe tools seem to give the best results in his post- What’s Coming Up- Woodturners Wonders has posted their 2019 Symposium schedule- Click on the above image for the link to their site and products. For The Newbies- We recently posted a video about keeping the lathe Morse Tapers clean.

Recently Mr. David Reed Smith made available a tutorial for making his version- Mr. Smith's approach to any project is always unique.

It was the bowl I had been using as a test for the Wonder Weave sanding screens. It is finished with beeswax and mineral oil combination. I found that I need to make/buy better sanding devices for the inside of bowls. I have a 3" pad- but it doesn't do well on the inside of the bowls at the bottom corners. I've made some sanding balls (from Mr. David Reed Smith's tutorials) that use sandpaper but was thinking of something that I could test the Wonder Weave products. Need to think on it. Safe turning
  12. Oiled up a couple bowls this morning. First is a natural edge walnut bowl not quite 14" diameter. This is a pretty big bowl, almost 6" deep. It has a really heavy bark layer on it. Next is a maple bowl about 13". This bowl is kind of like that toxic relationship everyone has had at some time or another. You know you should just walk away from it and cut your losses but just keep investing time and effort into making it work. This bowl cracked and then cracked some more. Carved out the cracks and filled them with alumilite casting resin and copper powder. If not for the really nice grain in it, it would've been toast(literally). First time working with the casting resin and I can see more of that in my future. Steve
  13. Been dealing with some family issues and haven't been in the shop very much. I did finish a couple pieces yesterday and today. Both are maple and both are right at 12" diameter. I think these two pieces really illustrate just how versatile is maple. First is a shallow bowl or deep platter, would probably work either way. Next is a platter, my attempt at a "traditional Irish platter" from the Glenn Lucas DVD and this is also one of the things a person will turn during his class. This is wormy, spalted, maple. Actually, in the interest of full disclosure and truth in advertising, this one is wormy, spalted, maple and superglue, a ton of it. Thanks for looking. Steve
  14. One of the bowls we did last week with Glenn Lucas was a milk paint bowl. The technique works best with an open grain wood like ash or oak. The bowl is turned close to finish and then wire brushed to open the grain. After brushing it gets painted with milk paint. After painting the final details are cut, in this case, the rim and the bead. It's a neat effect I think but probably not for everyone. We also talked about form and balancing the grain in a bowl. Form is not perfect on this one, I can see a little flat spot in it. A guy like Glenn considers nuances and details most of us never would. Anyway, I wanted to do something on the bottom so I didn't finish mine until I got home. It is finished with mineral oil and beeswax. Steve
  15. Was playing around a little today and thought I'd try something new. I had a little walnut crotch that was really to small to do much so I thought I'd try to turn a thin, natural edge, winged bowl just for fun. Have always wanted to try something like this but didn't really know where to start. It actually went better than I expected and even though I could see some sanding in my future I was pretty happy with what was emerging. The bowl was coming along nicely and I was really happy with the thickness. Was cleaning up around the bottom of the bowl, lost concentration for just an instant and nicked the bowl with the tool. Dohhh, pay attention!! Still, it was fun, I learned, and the next one will be better. Like professor Moody says "constant vigilance!!" Steve
  16. I really like turning maple, many times with the intention of embellishing it as the grain can lend itself to that. Now and then however you stumble into a piece that would be a crime to embellishment at all. I feel I hit the jackpot on this particular piece of wood, at least as far as it having beautiful grain. Didn't put my normal zentangle pattern on the bottom of this one, the grain was just too spectacular. Hated to even sign it but found the "plainest" spot I could. Steve
  17. Sprayed a bunch of ornaments yesterday morning. Some of globes are segmented plywood but I also experimented with the marbling technique described in American Woodturner magazine. Also did several birdhouse ornaments and turned some tiny birds to go with a few of them. Thanks for looking!! Steve
  18. First ornaments for this year. I'm doing a demo Sunday on segmented plywood globes and different coloring techniques so I finished these today to show for the demo. This one is a new technique for me. AAW magazine had a piece on marbling in the last issue and that's something I've wanted to try for a long time. There was a link in the article for a kit to get started and I ordered one to give it a try. This is the best one I've done and it was also the first. There won't be any pictures of the last few I've tried just like everything else, there is a learning curve. Steve
  19. Turned these for the lady and her daughter who own the local honey farm that sells my mason jar honey dippers. They have been good customers and a pleasure to deal with. The top finial on these is supposed to be a bee hive and the drop is supposed to look like a honey dipper. Not exactly sure if I'm all that happy with the shape. Love the idea and concept and I think they will too. Maple and walnut, two of my favorite woods to pair. Steve
