  1. Did a few of these a while back but it's been a while. This is soft maple, turned to about 2.5mm or 3/32" and just over 12" diameter. It will get my version of a basket weave illusion done with piercing and pyrography. This is the basic pattern, it's adapted from a Polynesian Lei, Lei weave which is normally done with water hyacinth reeds. The "X" areas will get pierced and the rest will get wood burned and shaded to produce the basket weave illusion. Have just started to layout the grid lines to draw the pattern. That's an LED lamp on the back side. Produce_0.mp4 Hoping this one turns out as it's intended tobe a gift.
  2. Starting into another month already. This is April and taxes are due in a little over a week. Hope our turners post their new tools purchased with those gigantic refunds! Our Patriot Turners- @Reese Aukee showed us some more of those cute little hedgehogs she turns. Reese received lots of positive comments and some questions about her turnings. Check out her post- @Gerald posted a comment in our sub-forum for Ring Master Turning. We have an ongoing thread in our woodturners forum discussing how we decide what to make from a chunk of wood. @Gerald suggested this topic and we have had several entries. Please take some time to see the thought processes (or lack thereof ) when trying to decide what to make. We look forward to seeing your turnings and how they came to be. If you are into turning miniatures, @kmealy showed us a neat portable lathe. He received lots of comments! ¹ What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for links to registration and more information- Cindy Drozda has been offering both paid and free online presentations.

Ashley Harwood has a few tips on helping prevent logs from cracking- Of course you need to first get that tree cut into manageable chunks. Here Lyle Jamieson and Sam Angelo have some tips on using the chainsaw- In combination with a chainsaw, the bandsaw can be used to create turning blanks. Robo Hippy's informative video gives us lots of pointers- Expand Your Horizons- Once you get that tree log into a manageable blank, you can create a beautiful natural edge bowl. Lyle Jamieson shows us how. If a natural edge bowl doesn't thrill you, here, Kent Weakley shows us how to turn a "magnetic" paper clip bowl! With Easter coming up fast, a cool turning from Alan Stratton on turning the perfect egg- What is a Kuksa? And How to Turn One? Mike Peace does some turning, carving and shaping! Basket weave illusion bowls are quite popular. Carl Jacobson turned something a little more shapely using the basket weave process.

  3. Here's hoping those Patriot members, in or near the path of hurricane Dorian, are safe and well. Our Patriot Turners- @Billy B posted information about his latest basket weave illusion. If you haven't seen his work, you MUST head over to his post and see the miracle transformation he does with a piece of maple! To say our turners were impressed is an understatement- What’s Coming Up- The Ohio Valley Woodturning Guild's symposium is October 17-20. Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. For The Newbies- Turners often would like to sell their pieces but may not always know what route to take. The "Router Forums" has an article that may answer some of those questions. Clicking on the above image will direct you to the article. Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) shared a great video on bowl turning. The Easy Wood turning tools really do make turning a lot easier! Expand Your Horizons- Arguably, Cindy Drozda is the master of finial turning. Her skills at the lathe are reflected in all her work. In this recently posted Youtube video, she demonstrates her skills.

Check out their new stuff at- https://shop.spiracraft.com/product-category/resin-casting/ Everything Else- Rick turns posted his August update for YouTube woodturning videos. Thank You, Rick! Seems like it has been months since I was able to spend time at the lathe. You may remember my failure as I was practicing a hollow vessel. Failure or re-design opportunity. I hate to give up. The hollow vessel was turning into a small oddly shaped bowl. Maybe I could make a lid! Now, the astute observer will notice that an item that has often been the brunt of jocularity has been replaced. The little bowl has a hat! The outside spiraling was done with a Sorby spiraling tool. The inside spirals were a happy accident using the new Easy Wood Tools mini straight hollower. The little hat needed a top OK, I took it a little farther. I wanted to try something different. The spiral embellishment is covered with copper leaf. The texture telegraphed through the copper but I probably should have cut the spiral a little deeper to provide more definition. I still need to finish the entire piece with a protective coating. Probably clear gloss poly. It was turned completely with Easy Wood Tools- with the exception of the spiral detail. I am calling this piece- "Klaatu Barada Nikto". Safe turning
  4. I don't make a lot of boxes. No particular reason, just not something that really appeals to me. I've had a basket weave pattern in my mind and wanted to do it on a smaller item before attempting it on a larger one. So, for some reason I decided to do a box. Since I had planned to embellish this box, I wondered if I could hide the join between the top and the bottom so I planned my pattern with that in mind. Then, I wondered, could I trick people about where the top and the bottom meet. So, I made it upside down, kind of. Anyway, here's the pictures, this is my sort of upside down, basket weave, maple box. It's about 4" high and a couple inches in diameter. I really haven't figure out how to terminate one of these basket weaves, I can see it in my mind but it just doesn't work when I try to draw it. At any rate, the wife says she likes this so that's good enough for me. This is the top. The bottom, I know I use this "phicops" pattern a lot but I just really like it. Opened and the inside, the join is about 3/4" from the bottom as the box is sitting upright. I'm hoping to have some fun with this at our meeting next Sunday. I believe most people will think the join is near the obvious "top" and try to open it there. We'll see. Steve
