  1. I ordered a Robert Sorby 1/2” bowl gouge with the fingernail grind. The price was too good to pass up.
  2. RustyFN

    New wood

    I saw where somebody had a tree cut down in their front yard while driving around. I stopped to ask about it and was told to help myself. I grabbed three logs for now but will probably go back for more. The guy told me he thought it was maple. What does it look like to you all. Also I have a picture of a bowl I started to turn from it. I discovered I need a large bowl gouge and roughing gouge very bad for these larger bowls.
  3. I just called the local bowling alley and I get to pick up some free bowling balls tomorrow. Been wanting to make some bowls out of them.
  4. RustyFN


    I got the walnut log cut in half and one bowl rough turned.
  5. I made another bowl. It is 11 inches in diameter and 4 inches tall. I put some wipe on poly on it and had a few bad spots show up that I couldn’t see before. I started over sanding from 60 grit back up to 400. Looks a lot better now.
  6. I made a small bowl while I was putting the finish on my other bowl. It is around 5.5 inches in diameter. Also a picture inside the other bowl I just finished.
  7. RustyFN

    New bowl

    Started a new bowl. It is a log the neighbor gave me. I think it is apple.
  8. Welp first turn of the new year. 2021. As well as the first turn on the brand new delta lathe. It took me a few minutes to figure out that forward is backwards and reverse is forwards basically. Either way I love the lathe so thanks to who ever suggested buying that one it was well worth the 600 some odd dollars I spent on it. It is extremely quiet and I'm honestly over all happy and impressed with it. Beats the harbor freight lathe by 1000 fold. I also got my new cole jaws for the larger bowls as well but I wanted to do a small little myrtle wood bowl for myself to throw my keys in whe
  9. Our Adopted Family Christmas Project was a complete success. Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to the raffle winners! Our Patriot Turners- Lots of great projects and discussions this past week! @Ron Altier started us off with a sweet little birdhouse ornament! Ron tells us a little about this turning and the little additions he added- @Steve Krumanaker embellishes some of his orders with an inexpensive laser. Steve shows us just how versatile one of these machines can be- Check out the c
  10. So, our son, who, to my knowledge has never had an interest in wood working has decided he wants to make "river" tables. That's a technique using live edge slabs, ripping them into pieces and then rearranging the pieces and pouring resin to make it look like a river. Yesterday he told me he was going to go look at some slabs in another town. I told him if they had one I'd like a piece of maple, 12" wide or more, about 1.5" thick. He brought home a monster of a slab, over 7' long, 16" at it's widest, and 2.5" thick. I think it weighed well over a hundred pounds. On the b
  11. It’s the end of Sept so for me I start getting the Xmas present stash going. My usual is ice cream scoops, salt and pepper mills and bowls. Today I didn’t have a lot of time so rather then get involved in the latest cabinet project I turned a handle for an ice cream scoop. I actually found a relative that doesn’t already have one. I have been giving them out for years. Of all the items I make they are by far the most popular and quickest to make. Usually less than an hour start to finish. This one is cherry. Paul
  12. If you don't have anything on the go...
  13. Can't remember if I posted it here or not but a local wood cutter dropped off a piece of Norway maple trunk at my house about a month ago. Said he thought it was the kind of wood I like. He has helped me in the past and I have made sure to gift turned items to him for his help. Anyway, finally got around to turning a little bowl from a section of the log and I'm a pretty happy camper just now. It has naptha on it in these pictures as I'm looking for scratches and/or tool marks. It's drying in a bag of shavings now but I won't do much more to it except to remove the tenon. Don't normally leave
  14. Live and learn. Fred can you take the measurements from the times you made the other bowls and use them or get close? The bowl in the middle was the first one I made right after I got my new Dewalt in 99. All I had was a little picture from an old magazine. It looked to be about 3 or 4 inches in diameter so I went three or four times larger and got close to what it originally looked like. Around the top I used small drawer pulls and for the feet, hose are air tool parts for I used to repair the tools I sold while being a Mac Tool distrubutor. They still have the O rings on
  15. I made a couple of new bowls for a customer at church.
  16. OK gang, we are getting down to the wire and we still have $505 dollars to go. Don't wait until the final day. DONATE NOW!!! Our Patriot Turners- This week has seen a lot of activity by our turners. Some ornaments were the order of the day. @Ron Altier posted two of his creations, one of wood and the other of acrylic. First up is his wooden creation. Ron gives us an explanation of how he put it together- Ron's second post is about his acrylic ornament. The blank, originally destined to be something other than an ornament, Ron
  17. I am pretty sure we would all agree that @Steve Krumanakeris the best at embellishing the bowl bottom. I use other tools than burning and try to h is also very good for convey the idea that the top is not all there is to a bowl. I use a Sorby Mini Spiraling tool mostly, just could not justify buying a large one. I also use the Craft Supply version of a Wagner tool and then there is the Decorating Elf which is also very effective on smaller items. Now for the challenge I will show some of mine and you show some of yours! Beads can work well too and fairly simple to add with practice
  18. Started another set of Christmas gifts again I think I have enough for every body to get two bowls this time around. Two Each I think 3 families and the parents. I should be good to go with this one. But Purple Heart is a rough wood to work with. But I managed to sand out pretty much all of the tool marks on this one.
  19. 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
  20. I used to have a free program for designing these types of bowls. I think it was on an old computer. I can’t find it or remember what the name of it is. Does anybody know what the program is?
  21. Beautiful day here in south central Pennsylvania. Got my garlic planted and the leaves raked. Our Patriot Turners- @PostalTom added this to the general woodworking forum but it applies to turners, too. We all use glue! Thaks, Tom for a great discussion. Although he was away for a while, @Steve Krumanaker hasn't lost a bit of his turning talents. Steve gave us a peek at his birdhouse ornaments- He also posted one of his segmented birdhouses Please check out both his posts and give him your comme
  22. Sorry about the late post. Unavoidable. Our Patriot Turners- Please welcome back one of our original forum members @Steve Krumanaker. Steve's been away for a while but certainly hasn't lost his touch for beautiful work! Check out what our turners had to say about this fantastic maple bowl- @Gerald gave us a really nice explanation on how he turns wooden spoons. Check out some of his techniques and tools! Gerald's week wasn't all peaches and cream, He tells us about the ups and downs of dropping items on the
  23. Some of the "old timers" here will remember I had to be away from turning for an extended period. When things kind of returned to normal I had lost some of my motivation to be in the shop. Other interests, family time, and if I'm being honest, laziness, kept me idle. Finally decided I need to get productive again and this is my first serious turning for fun in a long while. Happily and surprisingly, I wasn't as rusty as I feared, that means I still remember how to sand! Anyway, here is my bowl, maple, about 12"X3". I love maple, sometimes the grain is smooth and creamy but fairly plain and so
  24. Sorry, this weeks post is a little skimpy. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB provides most of this week's subject matter. He is trying out a different finish for his bowls. Andrew compares this finish to the one he was previously using in this post- In this post, Andrew does another Padauk bowl. It gave him a little trouble but like all turners, we adapt and overcome! Andrew's post on this project- It happens to all of us. Maybe just a little thinner, one more pass.... Oh $h!t!!
