  1. Congrats to all of the raffle winners. We really appreciate all of the participation. Our Patriot Turners- We've had a really great discussion started by @Gerald on hollowing tools. He gave us an insight into what he uses now and why. Gerald invited us to join in and share our experiences. Several members have already added to the discussion. Please hop over to Gerald's post and join in. We'd love to hear what you think and learn about the tools you use! @forty_caliber gave us a look at a bowl he turned from a log. He provided a bunch of progress shots from start to finish. You can see all of the images here- @Steve Krumanaker is back making magic at the lathe. He turned a fantastic flame box elder vase. Please see his post for more images and our turner's comments- What’s Coming Up- From Cindy Drozda. Click on the image for the link to registration For The Newbies- A video from Mike Waldt discussing design, esthetics and techniques. This is a replay from a live event. Expand Your Horizons- Mike Peace demonstrates multi-axis turning in this two part presentation. What I found interesting is that Mr. Peace didn't use a fancy jig for holding the offset pieces. New Turning Items- Every now and then the folks at Woodturners Wonders reminds us they that stock some unique woodturning items. Check out their site to see if there is something you might need. https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/unique-tools OK, this isn't new. There are many, many examples of steady rests available from just about every woodturning store. And even more shop made versions on line. What is new, here, is a unique method of mounting the three wheels. Here's the link for more information- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/magnetic-homemade-steady-rest/ Everything Else- Last week's list of YouTube woodturning videos from Rick Turns- I was able to start working on the bowls that a friend wanted made. Her husband and son have a small saw mill and they cut down a flame box elder tree. They provided a log that was long enough to make 4 bowls. They also gave me a piece of walnut from which I'll get a few bowls. Turned the logs into blanks - Was able to get 2 of the blanks roughed out- They are resting in the soap and water bath until tomorrow. Then into some shavings for a while. Starting the next two tomorrow. The walnut pieces intrigued me. The sap wood and heart wood were almost perfectly centered. I thought it would make an interesting piece if the outside was white and the inside was dark. That meant making an end gain bowl. Well it sorta worked. If I would have left the walls quite thick, it would have been better but very heavy. It's still kind of cool. Still need to finish the finish and part off the bottom. Not sure how much it will warp/crack as it is turned to finish will still green. The side walls are about 1/4" thick. Safe turning and stay well
  2. Three more segmented ply birdhouse ornaments. Probably the last of these for a bit.
  3. These are all Indiana hardwoods, walnut, maple, spalted beech, and cherry. May even be a piece of ash in there.
  4. First batch of ornaments for the year. Mostly maple, cherry, and walnut, there are a couple sycamore globes. There is one sea urchin ornament, that one has ebony finials. We spent a few days on Jacksonville beach with my wife's brother and his wife. Two of our best friends in the world. Picked some sea urchins and this ornament will go to them as a remembrance. Most of these are dyed "inside out". A couple local gift shops sell a few of these and those are the most popular. To me, it's hard beat just plain wood grain. Thanks for looking! Steve
  5. One of our members asked me recently why he hadn't seen any pictures of my work. I told him it's because I've never taken pictures until recently. Just never thought anyone would want to see 'em! But I did have a couple of items still kicking around. A friend asked for some bird houses about three years ago, and these two were "leftovers" in more ways than one... leftover 1x12 roof boards, plus I made more than she had a use for. The coffee table is just a TAD older, by about 50 years! The design was a high school shop project, and since I had few tools and no workshop, I persuaded my shop teacher to let me make a second one after classes. This one was given to my sister, who returned it when they downsized after retirement. The other one, slightly longer, is still in daily use in a brother-in-law's home. Just remembered I had one more project still in my possession. Tried decoy carving about 35 years ago. Mostly miniatures for gifts, and this was the only full-size one I carved. Still have two rough-outs in the shop... maybe one of these days? John
  6. Try not to laugh too hard but this is my first project on a lathe in 42 years. I have used a lathe since I made a file handle in wood shop class in high school. I had visions of inside out ornaments and fancy bowls but I came up with this. I suppose we all must start somewhere but I had a blast watching the wood chips fly. Trust me I will be asking a lot of questions as I try to improve my skills.
  7. RECENTLY BIRD HOUSE WAS MENTIONED, GOT ME TO THINKING. SEVERAL YEARS AGO, IN MY QUEST TO FIND PLACES & NAIL UP A BLUE BIRD NEST BOX, A COUPLE ASK ME IF I WOOD GIVE'M A NEST BOX TO SEND TO THEIR SON WHO WAS IN THE MILITARY. SAID HE'D ASK'M TO SEND'M anything THAT WOOD REMIND'M OF BACK HOME. I DID. FEW MONTHS LATER I ASK THE HUSBAND IF THE BIRD HOUSE MADE THE TRIP TO TEXAS? HE ANSWERED: WE SENT IT TO'M (FORGET PLACE) IN TEXAS. SHORT WHILE LATER HE TRANSFERRED TO VIRGINIA, BIRD HOUSE WENT RIGHT ALONG WITH'M. SHORT WHILE LATER TRANSFERRED TO DC, BIRD HOUSE WENT THERE TOO. HAVE NOT SEEN THIS MAN IN A FEW YEARS, WOOD LOV TO HEAR WHERE'N'ALL DID THAT BLUE BIRD NEST BOX TRAVEL TO, THAT WAS BUILT IN MY SHOP N ALMA, GA. & DID ANY BIRDS EVER SET FOOT IN IT? THANKS FOR SHARING A MEMORY BUCK NALL Cya
  8. I've posted here saying that wasps had invaded my birdhouses and killed small birds. I also said that I had sprayed the inside with dry teflon, thinking the wasp nest would not stick. Today I removed one of my bird houses and found two nests, one made by a bird and one made by the wasps that chased the bird away. This time I installed some very thin Teflon sheeting to the upper parts of the house. I also had to restore much of the declarations, the sun had eaten them again. I have several more to go.
  9. I made this birdhouse out of an empty 48oz Folgers Coffee Can. Mike
  10. This video impressed me so much. I am self taught and I learned so much. I can not do what he does because I have limitations. I was blown away with his talents
  11. It will be a couple weeks before I can turn anything new but Christmas is coming!! Time to start turning ornaments! Here's a few from last year. . .
