  1. One of these days, I'm gonna surprise you all and actually do some turning. But in the meantime let's not forget our pledge to make our "adopted" family's Christmas the best ever- Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker added more birdhouse ornaments to the bunch he already completed. I think he must be staying up nights! Steve shows us some of the fantastic details on these, in his post- @HandyDan cranked out a slew of awesome looking Awls. As always, Dan provides detailed descriptions of his process. H
  2. I found a nice piece of Black Walnut to use on the scratch awl hardware I made. I was going to nickle plate them but decided to just polish the parts and let them go to a natural patina from there. I have a small collection of awls and like the patina the older ones have. I had to buy the acorn nuts so I bought stainless steel nuts and washers. I turned a small shoulder on the acorn nuts to center the washer as the holes were a bit larger than the bolt. Take a look. These are a bolt through design and therefore would not benefit from a ferrule. Here is another loo
  3. Can you believe on 5 more days left in August! As @Charles Nicholls posted in another forum, we hope everyone along the Gulf coast stays safe from the impending hurricane. Our Patriot Turners- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools alerted me to a couple of very good articles on carbide tools and carbide cutters. The post and the PDF files of the articles are located here- That post tied in well with a question raised by @PostalTom. Tom was asking us what/why the difference between a carbide hollowing tool and a carbide finishing tool. Several of our turners offe
  4. I decided to make some scratch awls from scratch. I started with a 1/4"X4" bolt, a 3/8"X2 1/2" leveling bolt and a 3/8" cap nut. On the metal lathe I cut a long taper on the bolt, drilled and tapped the end of the leveler bolt to fit the 1/4"-20 bolt and turned the head round. I then drilled a 1/4" hole in the 3/8"-16 cap nut. I need to cut and drill the wood for the handle. I just used this piece of Oak for reference. I plan to polish and nickel plate all the parts too. The head will be recessed into the wood and will be used to hammer the
  5. 50 years ago, I started teaching at the local Vocational School. After retiring, I continued to substitute for another 17 years. This year I finally decided to officially retire. We'll see how it goes. Our Patriot Turners- Last week, @Artie posted about his new toys he won in our raffle and asked about any additional equipment he needed to get started. Tha post generated a lot of great ideas. But @Cliff added something very important about lathe speed and safety- From Cliff's post, I found this article- Yamaguchi_SafetyMatters.pdf @R
  6. Install a lid. and a seal coat. Found some water a-going across the Dungeon floor today. Figured I get the lid on, and then seal the wood up. First the hinges a bit of chisel work with just a few hand tools. Scratch awl is a Stanley. Used it to make some pilot holes, then ran a screw into each. After start to get things together....found the hinges were on up-side down....ooops. Re-install the hinge, right side up. Brass screws that came with the hinges were a bit too long. Grinder made them the right length. Lid also has a pine cleat on one end, to keep a
  7. You will have to admit, THIS IS AWLSOME. I had a piece I had turned composed of scraps a few years ago. I was cleaning my shop and hated to toss it. So I looked for a way to use it. I saw a crack in my Stanley Awl handle and ....................................
