    Six methods

    Drying Turned Wood by Gerald Lawrence I will cover the method I use as well as some other methods which have been up and down in popularity in the woodturning world to dry a blank in a method of turning called Twice Turned. First what is Twice Turned (TT) . TT is when you rough turn a bowl (usually only green wood) down to a wall thickness equaling one-tenth of the diameter of the bowl, the turn again when it reaches moisture equalization (MEQ) to final finish. 1. Bag & Chips OK that does sound like fast food but that is what I will call this method which is th
  2. So I started a Myrtle Bowl. My mother decided she wanted me to make bowls for people for her so I ordered 6 blanks for that two myrtle wood two canary wood and two more bhilwara wood bowls. They are on the cheaper side of things yes but I think she was more or less going for the way the wood grain looks. I do like the way they look. I'm kind of glad she chose those because they are easy as all get up to turn. I'm also trying out a new sanding tool and inertia sander that I picked up the other day. Its working well semi okay for things but not the best. I guess its another learning curv
  3. First off I did order myself a pen making kit from rockler.com website. I also had placed an order for a set of cole jaws from Amazon website. and I ordered a bit of wood from Cook Woods out of Kalamath Oregon. Going to give them a try for bowl blanks their pricing is reasonable and ships rather fast if you're on the west coast. The coal jaws I havent quite got figured out as of yet, but once I get them set up I'm sure I'll be good to go. As for cook wooks I'm not sure of them as of yet but they may be receiving more orders. Not sure what the heck is up with UPS lately but I had a tool s
  4. We are still about $400 short of our fundraising goal for this year- only 30 days left! Some great prizes available. Don't miss your chance to score big and be part of making Veteran's lives a little better. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier is our resident ornament designer. Ron experiments with a wide range of finishes. His current favorite is a U/V finish. Ron shows us just how versatile this finish can be- See this post for Ron's explanation- Ron goes on to show us some of the unique effects this finnish can produce-
  5. Long and wordy, go away now if you're smart. Regulars know I've had a good year. Spent a whole week learning from Glenn Lucas, more recently did a workshop day Cindy Drozda. Glenn's main source of income is bowls, lots of them. He will routinely process around three hundred or more bowls at a time, I think that's right. Everything from chainsawing the blanks to drying, to finishing. He has retail outlets that sell his bowls and order regularly. Cindy Drozda is known for her delicate finials, elegant hollow forms and working with exotic one of a kind pieces of wood. Most of her items
  6. I posted some picture a couple weeks ago of some walnut I'd scored. I spent the last few days working it into some bowl blanks. Basically I made a big mess in the back yard. I've still got three more little crotch pieces to cut into blanks but almost done. Did these this morning, some of them are near 20" diameter and may end up as platters, still haven't convinced myself a 20" bowl is a good idea.
