  1. Hope everyone has purchased their raffle tickets to support the Patriot site! Only about 30 hours left until the big drawing! Just in case you want to get in on the action- Our Patriot Turners- We are going to start off this week with another incredibly important cause in which we can all be involved. It costs us nothing but a little time and can make a huge difference in a young persons life. @Gerald posted a little vessel he turned- This turned box will hold "Beads Of Courage" for the recipient. Gerald and the Magnolia Woodturners have been making these containers and giving them to kids battling cancer. This video tells us about the Beads of Courage program- Gerald also provide us with additional information on how to participate in this wonderful program. The Beads of Courage organization has partnered with the AAW to garner interest in turning the bowls- 2018_AAW_handout_guidelines.pdf In addition, Gerald provided the link to the Beads of Courage website. Click on the above image for the link to their site. Here is Gerald's original post- @Gerald posted this in the General Woodworking Forum but since many of our turners do craft shows, we thought it might be of interest here. What’s Coming Up- One last time! For The Newbies- Woodworker's Journal has posted another video, by Ernie Conover, comparing carbide and traditional turning tools. Sometime back, we included an earlier video on the same topic by Mr. Conover. Not sure what changed, but, Mr. Conover seems to have a little more positive opinion on the carbide tools in this video. Expand Your Horizons- The seventh and last part of Jim Rodgers series on segmented turnings- A beautiful maple burl platter from Lyle Jamieson- New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have added a new CBN wheel to their inventory. This is the 4 in 1 Plus wheel. More information and specs can be found at their website- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/new-products/products/4-in-1-plus-cbn-wheel We featured this Sorby product a few weeks ago. It has undergone a name change. It is now the Robert Sorby SteadyPro Turning System- Not new but on sale at a great price- If you need Easy Wood Tools cutters, now is the time to stock up!!! Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from week- Trying to clear out all those half finished turnings. The finished "square bowl" The elm bowl that warped and cracked and a cherry bowl that I added a rounded lip and foot. When it came time to finish off the bottom, the Cole jaws on the Easy Chuck stretched just far enough! This one is setting on the workbench with the poly finish slowly drying. Safe turning and stay well
  2. Hey gang, don't forget, we are into our site fundraising raffle. We started off like gangbusters but we have a long way to go! If you haven't already purchased your tickets, please consider checking out the fantastic prizes! All the proceeds from this fundraiser go to the operating costs of this site. Here's more: Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker set up a really cool way to visualize wall thicknesses when turning hollow forms. He mentioned it last week and had an opportunity to get his vase turned- Beautiful shape and colorization. Steve tells us more about this turning and also posted some images of the hollowing tools he made- Steve was out at one of the nation's largest "yard sales" and snagged a honey of an old turning caliper- Steve shows us more images and a little about his shopping experience- @AndrewB continues to create beautiful pepper mills. Here is his most recent piece- Andrew shows us some other views in his post- Andrew posted a couple of process shots in our "What's On Your Workbench" forum. Thought I'd add them here as well so you cans see what this pepper mill looked like along the way- Last week I posted a video of @Gerald's work but couldn't remember how I came across it. Gerald was kind enough to steer me in the right direction. The club Gerald belongs to is called the Magnolia Woodturners. They have a YouTube channel with a bunch of demonstrations. Check it out at- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxqC3z3zrAP-cICGwP-wiDw/videos @John Morris provided a link to download a portion of the September-October Workbench Magazine- the plans for a turned cherry planter. A simple project that could be turned from just about any wood. The PDF file- Workbench Magazine September-October 1967 Cherry Planter.pdf And the link to John's post- What’s Coming Up- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Events/Annual-Symposium---Conference/2021-Virtual-Symposium/Woodturner/2021-Virtual-Symposium/2021-Virtual-Symposium-Home.aspx?_zs=ceDib&_zl=NKsb2 Here's the link for signing up- http://www.cindydrozda.com/html/Signup.html For The Newbies- It's no secret that the skew is my archenemy with which I have a love/hate relationship. Mike Waldt has added another beginners guide to lathe tool use with this live demonstration and question/answer video. It is quite long but very informative- The forth in a series on lathe maintenance from Record Power- Expand Your Horizons- A nice kitchen project that involves some not too difficult offset turning from the Woodworker's Journal https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/project-double-offset-bread-knife/ Alan Stratton makes a wooden goblet from walnut- Everyone here knows my fondness for the Easy Wood Tools products ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ). I use their tools for almost all of the items I turn. The folks at Easy Wood Tools will be the first to acknowledge that having many types of tools (Carbide and HSS) in your arsenal is beneficial. What really bothers me is why many experienced turners tend to diminish the roll of carbide tools and their users. I recently came across 2 videos where the authors compare/contrast carbide to HSS. Both turners are well known and highly respected. Both expounded on what HSS tools can do and what Carbide cannot. In the first video, in my opinion, the presenter hasn't spent equal time learning the ins/outs of Carbide vs. HSS. It's disappointing because his was the first lathe book I ever had. This second presenter is more receptive to the idea that Carbide has advantages. It's still skewed somewhat to the HSS allegiance, but, that is to be expected as the presenter has their own line of HSS tools. END OF RANT. New Turning Items- From Woodturners Wonders a really nice sanding bundle at a great price. Note: this is a air powered device- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/pros-wonder-weave-snubber-hose-bundle From Craft Supplies USA, a new item for those who make rings- https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/p/58/7376/artisan-White-Ceramic-Inlay-Comfort-Fit-Ring-Core-8mm?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=white&utm_campaign=21-05-ceramic Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- Safe turning and stay well
  3. Just a reminder that we are about 2 weeks into our summer raffle to help offset the costs of running the Patriot site. If you haven't already picked up your tickets for some awesome prizes, here's the scoop! Our Patriot Turners- Our turners were back at their lathes this week! @RustyFN posted his curly maple segmented bowl and it is a beauty! Rusty received lots of positive comments about it. Check out the post at- @AndrewB turned a slightly different style pepper mill. The grinding mechanism is different from his past turnings- Andrew shows us his progress from the rough blank to the finished mill- Andrew also gave us a review of his new buffing system He gave us the link to this product in his post- One of our long time members posted his first turning. @Ron showed us the beginnings of a cane he is making- He received lots of encouragement and some suggestions on this turning- @forty_caliber poste a question about using the parting tool. Check out his post and see if you can offer some suggestions or ideas- @Steve Krumanaker started turning a tall vase from flame box elder. Looks like this is going to be a beauty! More images in Steve's post- Just a note here, if you subscribe to the Woodworker's Journal, next issue has an article about flame box elder- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/box-elder/ Steve has decided to up his game, when deep hollowing, and ditch the laser pointer for a more advance method of determining wall thickness. Check out his post on his most recent upgrade- @Gerald challenged us to post our Mother's Day turning gifts. Gerald's gift turning is fantastic! See additional images and our member's comments in his post- I need to start writing down the trails to some of the stuff for each weeks Wednesday's... I can't remember how I came across this video of Gerald's presentation to the Magnolia Woodturners- What’s Coming Up- A little something different from Cindy Drozda- Click on the above image to Cindy's site and registration information. From the AAW- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. For The Newbies- We have been linking videos from Record Power on lathe maintenance. Although aimed at a specific lathe model, the information can be pretty much applied to any lathe. Here is part# 3Part# 3 of Mike Waldt's beginner series for turners. Again this is a replay of a live session and is kind of long. From the World Wide Wood Turners, a nice demonstration on various methods of holding a turning. Expand Your Horizons- Mike Waldt has something for the more advanced turner in this video- Alan Stratton's take on chasing threads Mike Peace recently published a video on the various types of spiraling and texturing tools. Within the video, Mike refers to links for longer videos on each tool. He also has a PDF article that can be downloaded at- https://www.mikepeacewoodturning.com/2019/05/03/texturing-and-spiraling/ IMHO, there can be no greater honor than to be asked to create a burial urn. Sam Angelo has a video demonstrating how to calculate the internal volume using some easily made measuring devices. New Turning Items- Robert Sorby Brand Ambassador Darryl Jones introduces the Deluxe Sovereign TurnMaster Box Set- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a heavy duty compass capable of drawing 28" circles. Check it out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/12-inch-carpenters-compass Premier Gauges has some interestingly designed wall and bottom thickness gauges- More information can be found at- https://premiergauges.com/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I had one last piece of cherry but it had some pretty nasty cracks. Decided to see what could be found inside. I'm surprised that I could get this much. Sill a couple of cracks that will need taken care of At this point I normally submerge the piece in the soap and water solution for a couple of days and then on to drying in a paper bag with shavings. Turned out my pot is only 12" in diameter!. I CA'ed the cracks, wrapped the bowl in stretch wrap and put it in my little drying box (ala Rick Turns). Then for the cleanup! Safe turning and stay well
  4. We have started our annual site fund raiser. There are some fantastic prizes to be had for the lucky winners. If you like this site, consider donating to the operating costs!

Lots of great turners there- https://worldwidewoodturners.org/ For The Newbies- Last week we posted a video from Record Power on lathe maintenance. Here is the second part- Highland Woodworking published a nicely illustrated article on using the fingernail gouge, by Temple Blackwood- The article can be read here- https://www.highlandwoodworking.com/woodturning/woodturning-with-a-small-fingernail-gouge.html?utm_source=ActiveCampaign&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Read+the+May+2021+Issue+of+Wood+News+Online&utm_campaign=May+2021+Wood+News&vgo_ee=SSZUGqILrYqLrMaaxASZAzpxdzkQNl9LgdxZ9pnzLRY%3D Expand Your Horizons- Jim Rodgers has a very nice series on turning miniature articles. This is Part 1 and the others are referenced on his YouTube channel- I've been making Celtic Knot rolling pins for a long time. Although the wood I use matches the pepper mills and salt cellars I make, I always wished there was a way to duplicate the knot in those items. Thanks to Alan Stratton, I think this might be the answer- Our sponsor, Laguna, linked this video on social media. Turning a coffee spoon. It incorporates multiple media and some cool jigs. New Turning Items- We mentioned these wooden threads before. Here's a short video, From Ron Brown, showing the steps to using them on a pet urn.

  5. Hard to believe but only two more days left in April! Really looking forward to summer weather. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald gave us a peek at his shop made parting tool. Unlike a lot of parting tools, this one cuts cleanly. Gerald explains how he created this tool, in his post- @RustyFN posted his almost completed combination bowl. This one is a beauty and combines multiple disciplines. Rusty got lots of positive comments on his work. You can read them in this update to his original thread- Rusty also provide a bit of sage advice. It is self explanatory- @AndrewB is finishing up a pepper mill in which he combined 2 species. They really look nice together- Andrew explains more about this turning in this posting- Andrew also mentioned his wishes to improve his dust collection. Maybe you have some ideas that he could incorporate. What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to registration For The Newbies- Sanding is one way to remove tool marks. However, a better way is to avoid them as much as possible. Here's a video explaining the possible causes of the marks and what you can so to help reduce them during the turning process- This is another video in the beginners series, from Mike Waldt. This one on scrapers, negative rake grinds and parting tools. It's rather long as it is from his live presentation.- Although aimed at the Record Power Midi Lathe, most of the maintenance tips in this video can be applied to just about any lathe- Craft Supplies USA has been publishing a beginners series of woodturning videos by Dale Nish. This one is turning a bowl from a dried blank- Expand Your Horizons- Lyle Jamieson shows us the thought process for designing and turning a natural edge hollow vessel. The other week we posted some information on purchasing already made wooden threads for lidded projects. With a little practice and a couple of tools, you can create them yourself, as Mike Peace explains- Within Mike's video, he references this from Allan Batty New Turning Items- Couldn't find anything interesting this week, so hang on to that stimulus check! Everything Else- Tim Yoder is having fun with this project to be gifted to a friend Rick Turns' list of woodturning YouTube videos from last week- I finished up the little natural edge bowl I had been messing with. I like the shape but I think I can do better by using less of the logs diameter and making the piece a little longer. I think that will give the piece a flatter more pleasing look. Anyway, used wipe on gloss poly for this one. I'm getting better at making the walls thinner, too. Safe turning and stay well
  6. A little longer post this week. Was away last week and didn't have access to my weekly list of stuff to post. Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN posted a picture of a bowl he started for a continuing project with the turning club in which he is a member. Rusty showed us a picture of what will be added to this turning, during a future club meeting. Turning can be a messy hobby. Rusty posted some of his by-products- @AndrewB continues working on pepper mills. In this post, he shows us one of his maple mills assembled and finished- Andrew also gave us a look at one he had posted previously and is now complete- Andrew started a conversation about beading tools. Beads can be made with a variety of turning tools, however, some projects are more conducive to a dedicated tool. How do you turn your beads? Check out the conversation and give us your ideas- Andrew also spent some time perfecting this sharpening techniques. He showed us his success on a scraper. He received lots of positive comments @Bob Hodge asked about making our own tools using a specific material- "Tantung". If you have any experience with this material, maybe you could pop over to his post and chime in- @Ron Altier dug up an older post that introduced us to the products of our sponsor- Easy Wood Tools. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. From all of the other carbide products on the market, @Jim from Easy Wood Tools should be feeling pretty good about starting it all! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to registration. Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. Sponsored by Craft Supplies USA. Click on the above image for more information. Not exclusively for turners but there are turners involved. Click on the above image for more information. For The Newbies- I make no secret about it- I hate sanding. Mostly because I suck at it. Here is some information to help us all improve on our techniques- WF0501p19-21.pdf Andrew mentioned he sharpened his scraper. He received several comments on different techniques. I found this article describing some of those techniques- https://turnawoodbowl.com/scraper-sharpening-bevel-angle-burr-how-to/#:~:text=Some people recommend a 85,to 60-degree bevel angles A video from Mike Waldt on the roughing gouge and spindle gouge. Another in the series for beginners. This is a replay of a live program. It is quite lengthy- Pens are really nice, well received gifts. I've turned lots of them over the years. If the pen is for an older person, as was the case with my Mom, sometimes they have a hard time holding the more delicate (slime) styles. A nice design for arthritic hands- Turned kitchen items are always appreciated. A nice article for turning mixing spoons- https://community.woodturner.org/HigherLogic/System/DownloadDocumentFile.ashx?DocumentFileKey=4ce49ef3-df90-46ee-a6a3-23b92152f2f3&forceDialog=0&_zs=ceDib&_zl=AcdW2 If you are thinking about investing in some Easy Wood Tools, Here is a short video on their use- Expand Your Horizons- Andrew's post on beading tools, and some of the responses led me to this web site. I don't think it would be possible to create these works of art without the aid of a dedicated beading tool- See more of Mr. Meyer's work at http://www.harveymeyer.com/ While Mr. Meyer's is the epitome of geometric shapes, sometimes mother nature can rival this beauty with the organic shapes of spalted wood. You may be lucky enough to obtain naturally spalted pieces. If not, you can help mother nature along- An interesting bowl project. Two bowl blanks make one bowl. A two part video- New Turning Items- You say you want to use wooden threads on that container you just made? But you don't have a pair of Thread Cutters? Not a problem! Ron Brown has you covered! Everything Else- The past two weeks of YouTube videos from Rick Turns- Woodworker's Journal post of Woodturning Monthly- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Played a little with a piece of the mulberry. The first turning didn't turn out anywhere near the vision in my head. This one is a little more like what I had in mind. I need to get better at centering the the workpiece. The wall thicknesses around the natural edge vary from 1/8" to almost 1/4". I'm still starting with a piece that's too "thick" to get a "flatter" turning and keep the natural edge. Safe turning and stay well
  7. Thanks for posting that link Lew but it leaves me confused. Hopefully one of our members can bring me up to speed. According to his post Clewes paints the AAW as something akin to a secret cabal for wood turning. Somehow I find it difficult to believe the AAW is planning to take over the world. I know that all associations like the AAW get a little political but geez. Paul
  8. Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN added an addition to his new Record Lathe This outrigger adds a lot of versatility to the lathe as Rusty explains in his post- New member @Chris Brown, is looking for a new lathe and asked our advice. Our members aren't shy about providing help when asked! Check out Chris' post and chime in with your thoughts!

If you are a member of the AAW, they are presenting Liam O'Neill in their Master Series, March 27. Here's the link to more information- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Virtual-Events/AAW-Master-Series--Liam-O-Neill--Intro--March-27--2021--TRT-1-26-.aspx For The Newbies- Here's a nice kitchen project that combines elements of spindle turning and a little hollowing- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/project-elegant-biscuit-cutter/ Some tools, because of their shape, can be difficult to sharpen. Here's a novel approach that seems to work pretty good! Too often, when I put a chunk of wood on the lathe, I'm really not sure exactly what I'll end up with. This short video can help with planning the outcome. Expand Your Horizons- This is a really long video. It is a teaching lesson, by Linda Ferber, about surface embellishments and more. The folks at Alumilite help us decide which epoxy is suited for a particular application- New Turning Items- Not a new item but maybe something you have been thinking about adding to your arsenal. The Sorby Pro Hollower- Ruth Niles has put together a package deal of some of her most popular items Here is the link for ordering- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/super-stainless-kit/ If you use the code "newsletter #25" at checkout, you'll get an extra discount!
