  2. Well, I hope everyone is recuperating from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas holiday and that you all got at least one thing you had on Santa's List. Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker posted a couple of bowls he recently completed. As always, Steve's design, choice of woods and finishes are impeccable . Steve's post has more images and descriptions of what he has done. Please head on over there check out the post in its' entirety- A couple of weeks ago, @hawkeye10 asked us how he could hold work pieces to make legs for a small table. He finished up the legs (and table) and it is gorgeous. There is so much great woodworking going on in his project, you just have to check it out for yourself- Here's the complete post including images of the table build- What’s Coming Up- 111 W. General Cavazos Blvd. Kingsville, Texas 78363 Click on the image for more details. For The Newbies- Big shout out to @HandyDan for the heads up on this video from Ernie Conover. It's all about drilling on the lathe. In many instances this is faster, easier and more accurate than trying to drill with a drill press. Expand Your Horizons- Back in October, @Steve Krumanaker spent a week enjoying a woodturning class from Glenn Lucas. One of the important aspects Steve mentioned was the shape of a bowl. Here's a video discussing bowl shapes. Steve stressed the importance of pleasing bowl shapes. This video is more about reading the wood and the eventual bowl shape. New Turning Items- Not exactly new but the Easy Wood Tools negative rake cutters are now available for all of the Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools). Craft Supplies USA has a short video demonstrating these cutters on man made materials. The finish is awesome! If your lathe doesn't have a built in indexing device, Mike Peace has a video illustrating how he built a really nice addition to his (or any) lathe. The index wheel (and a complete kit) is available from- https://www.chefwarekits.com/basket-weave-illusion-wood-burning-carving-tools/ez-index-wheel-steel-12in-dia-for-woodturning.html Everything Else- A two part video from Tim Yoder creating a hollow vessel, well sorta. Part 2 is linked from Tim's YouTube site. Safe turning

    My move from craftsman to art?

    This is my entrance to more art than crafts. Many people use their wood to demonstrate their skills. I use a minimum of skills to demonstrate the wood. I am privileged to be the first one to peek inside what God made. So, this is a wall hanging, mostly from scraps,and exploring various finishes. Lignum vitae, red oak, walnut, sepele, hickory, cherry, lace wood, mulberry with finishes of Waterlox, poly, BLO, beeswax. I will work on the framework to make it simpler. Right now, it is a bunch of aluminum wire and hot glue. Starting on Swoosh II today.
  4. Just to put things into perspective, there are 48 shopping days 'til Christmas. Our Patriot Turners- @Monkey Paws Is getting back into turning and he posted his latest project for us. Our members had lots of praise for his beautiful piece. Please give his post a read and add your comments- @Steve Krumanaker has been busy turning and decorating bowls. Steve showed us two of his latest- Check out Steve's post for more images and a description of the different woods he used- @Ron Altier's Christmas ornament production is in full swing! Check out this beauty- Ron explains how he put the jewel in the center- @RustyFN asked about a food safe finish for some bowls he turned. Our members offered several suggestions- What’s Coming Up- Mark you calendars for the Raleigh, NC Woodturning Symposium- Click on the above image for registration information. For The Newbies- @RustyFN asked about food safe finishes for a bowl. Just this past week, Mike Peace posted a video on making his version of that finish. This is my goto food safe finish. For cutting boards, I usually apply several coats of pure mineral first so it penetrates deeper. Also, I usually heat the mineral oil/beeswax before applying. Expand Your Horizons- Tim Yoder has a new, two part video on making a Christmas ornament. In this one, Tim uses a laser cut kit as part of the design. The second part of the presentation is linked from Tim's page. The kit is available from Ron Brown- https://www.ronbrownsbest.com/index.php?route=common/home New Turning Items- There has been rather a lengthy discussion, this past week, comparing the Tormek sharpening system to the similar Grizzly system. One of the ideas floated in that discussion was about CBN sharpening wheels. A turning products emails I received had this information- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/cbn-wheels Everything Else- The Woodturning OnLine newsletter came this week. The article on Thin Stem Turning, by Alan Carter, looks really interesting- The PDF can be found at- http://honoluluwoodturners.org/16_tips/Alan Carter_thin stem tutorial.pdf Also, as @PostalTom pointed out, there is a cute video of a BIG pepper grinder in the newsletter- The entire newsletter is at- https://www.woodturningonline.com/ Finally, Rick Turns has his October list of turning videos available. When you check out these videos, please give Rick a Bravo Zulu for all of his hard work producing this information Safe turning

    Three bowls

    finished the last of these today. will be given away next saturday.
  6. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the folks living in the path of hurricane Florence. Stay safe and follow the advice of the officials. We need you back here. PATRIOT TURNERS!!!!!! I have had a request from @Jim from Easy Wood Tools . Our most generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools, places a Christmas tree in their office lobby. It gets decorated with turned ornaments from their turning friends. Jim asked if the Patriot Turners could create some ornaments to help in filling up the tree. These do not need to be fancy or exotic woods. The ornaments will be painted/finished by young ladies who have volunteered to help. Snowmen/ladies, tiny Christmas trees, birds, baubles, whatever comes to mind. Your ornaments will be in good company with others from turners all over. I'm in for this and I hope you will be, too. You can send your ornaments to: Jim Luley Easy Wood Tools 1365 Cahill Drive Lexington, KY 40504 If you have any questions, let me know! Let's cover that tree!! Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier created another beautiful ornament from colored plywood. Ron explains his process in this thread- From The Internet- Mike Peace has been posting a few short videos primarily aimed at helping the newer wood turner. One recently was on the use of dividers when turning. I found two interesting videos on bowl turning. Not so much on how to turn them but more about the end results. Most of us have been indoctrinated into the idea that the bowl blank must be dry- either at the start of the turning or at least at the time the bowl will be finished. Mike Peace demonstrates the beauty of allowing mother nature to have a hand in the process by turning a bowl start to finish with green wood. As the bowl eventually dries it will warp into shapes we can embrace. Another idea on bowl finishing is by Rick Turns. Rick uses gilding to enhance a design. As he works, Rick shows us some of the things that can go wrong. Now just for the sheer enjoyment of seeing something turned that you would probably never expect- Everything Else- In keeping with the bowl theme that we have going, I did get to finish a little flame box elder bowl I started a while back. The bowl was turned rough and then I needed to start a different project so I painted on a layer of old TiteBond II. The blank didn't warp or crack. I think the TiteBond II sealing is the way to go. The little bowl still needs a protective finish. It's about 6 inches in diameter and about 2 inches tall. Safe turning
  7. Well as nice as last week was, this week is the complete opposite. Rainy, damp and miserable. The Patriots woodturners did not let the weather deter them! @Steve Krumanaker has been busy with several projects. He is designing a clock for a demonstration at his woodturnong club. Steve made several different designs and was asking for input as to your favorite. Check out Steve's post and give him some input- Steve is also busy making a whole bunch of honey dipper/jars for a bee farm. He puts his shop made laser to work for the decorative tops. Read his post and the comments our turners offered- @Gerald has been busy as well. He recently turned a pecan bowl and with a gorgeous jade inlay. Gerald talks about the process in his post- Although not directly about turning, Gerald posted an informative topic on bearings and their numbering identification system. This data can be useful with any piece of equipment that contains bearings. I must apologize to @Jim from Easy Wood Tools for missing his post on a beautiful Bocote bowl he turned. Jim posted this on our site last week. He sure can make those Easy Wood Tools sing!! Jim claims to be a newbie turner. Hmmm, I wonder.... Member @Gene Howe sent me a link to some interesting jig/hardware for turning basket weave illusions bowls- This image is of a piece made by Bill Boehme. The link- https://www.chefwarekits.com/basket-weave-illusion-wood-burning-carving-tools/basket-weave-ilusion-diy-kit-woodturning-1.html The ChefWare Kits site has lots of great other kits, jigs and hardware. Sometime back we had a discussion about the pros and cons of spindle washers. I found this video discussing their use and the author provides some visual test data. I'll leave you to make up your own mind. I don't anyone who doesn't like a good biscuit. Mike Peace shows us how to turn a wooden biscuit cutter. Might make a nice object for those craft shows this summer. I've had a little time to play at the lathe. I started on a natural edge bowl made from a piece of the flame box elder. I have it turned and am into the sanding phase. I turned it green, to the final thickness (about 3/16", and am keeping it packed in shavings when I'm not working on it. It is drying slowly while I sand and I'm hoping there won't be too much warping. Safe turning
  8. Wow, January is in the books already! I spent the afternoon with the Electronics Technology kids while their instructor was away from the school. @Gene Howe posted a picture of a fantastic turning he saw- This is a functioning chess game. Several of our turners added their comments here- @Smallpatch posted a picture of a leg turning he did as a replacement for a damaged one. Jesse explains what he did here, along with an additional image- Last week @Steve Krumanaker showed us an ornament stand he created for a customer. Steve updated that post with additional images of the stand with the hummingbird ornaments displayed- In case you missed it, the entire post can be read at- @DAB turned a couple of really beautiful bowls. He told us the wood is from his scrap pile. Pretty awesome scraps, Douglas!! Check out his post- Speaking of bowls, @kmealy posted a picture of a bowl done by his friend. I've seen bowls similar and they are fascinating- Check his post for the discussion about how these can be made- @Gerald is still working on his Beads Of Courage bowls. He shows us a picture of the one on which he is currently working Check his post for a look at the new tool he is making- When I purchased my first lathe, I also bought a book on turning by Ernie Conover. I didn't know any turners and we didn't have a woodworking club in this area so all my beginning knowledge came from the book and its' illustrations. Recently, I found this video by Mr. Conover on turning a natural edge bowl. It is interesting to get his take on the bowl and the procedure he uses. If you have never tried one of these, this is a good staring video- I noticed that Mr. Conover was wearing an odd looking device around his neck. Turns out it was a type of respirator. Not sure I would want this type but if you are interested here's a link to more information- https://shop.hamiltonmarine.com/products/resp-o-rator-one-size-hepa-dust-filter-7067.html?gclid=Cj0KCQiAzMDTBRDDARIsABX4AWwNXXfK2x7Fk_KkE_MyJmaYlx64pLp8T4JAd_f9P9b-c2H95WzvDgoaAngKEALw_wcB @Steve Krumanaker Has been working on making a "Cube Within a Cube". He has 2 videos up about the process. What make this different is that Steve is doing it on the lathe. Typically these are done on a drill press. The basement shop has been so cold that the finish I put on the latest turning isn't drying properly. Brought it upstairs to see if that helps. Needed to get it away from the dust so I can make an inertia sander. Bought the bearing and sleeve from Capt. Eddie. Safe turning
  9. Made this today. Oak, cherry, lacewood and walnut, cherry, oak. Present for a friend. House warming gift for his new place.

    Turning Tips

    After reading & following a lot of these turning post it still amazes me what you guys can do with a block of wood. There are ton of videos on the web and I could watch them for hours, & a lot of times I find myself doing just that. Having said that it still leaves a couple hundred questions in my head. I don't own a lathe but would like to move in that direction. As a newbie: What type of lathe to buy, I"m sure there are plenty of choices, pros & cons? How do you set up your tool to eliminate vibration? Basic tools to start with. Keeping tools sharp. Types of wood, green, dry, walnut, maple oak? Woods to stay away from. Treatment of wood before and after turning. I'm sure there will be more questions down the road but let's start here.

    I got stuff stacked everywhere!!

    I think I finally have all the inventory I'm taking to the little craft show coming up. Just brought a batch of honey dippers in from the shop, got them on the kitchen table for now. I won't display these but they will go to the honey farm that's hosting the show. She will put them on a jar of honey for her shop. Wife helped me come up with a little price tag that I'm going to use. Has my name on the front and a thank you on the back. Also has my phone number just in case. Still have to come up with a business card of some sort. These are all the bowls, tops, decorative mason jar lids etc. etc. that I'm going to show. I forgot to add the embellished vases to the picture. Last but not least, this just came in the mail. It's a cheap, Chinese, laser engraver. Something I've been thinking about for a while. This one will etch an area about 11"X14" if I remember exactly. Should be ideal for bowl bottoms, lids, pendants, etc. etc. That is, if it works as advertised!! Time will tell but I won't do much with it for a few weeks. Hmmm, just read a tutorial about doing a blog..... Steve

    And, in other news

    Well, it's been a busy few days. Sunday was our club's monthly meeting and it's time to elect officers. I was nominated for president, which is bad but worse, I was the only nominee. So, it looks like I'm a lock though I haven't checked the Vegas odds. Not something I really want but the club is important to me so I'll do my best. Today, I committed to doing a little show in Nov. something I've not done to this point. LOTS to get lined out and I don't really have a clue how to go about most of it. For anyone who has done shows, any and all suggestions and/or advice is appreciated. Steve

    Spalted Cottonwood

    From the album: Bowls and Platters

    This spalted cottonwood (it spalts very quickly) took a great deal of sanding to get a smooth surface. Finish was Captain Eddies OB shine juice.

    Bradford Pear lidded bowl

    From the album: Bowls and Platters

    This spalted bradford pear was down in a neighbors backyard a couple years. New owner moved in and removed it. I turned the spalted bowl and added the cherry lid and finial.
  25. Gerald

    Cherry with voids

    From the album: Bowls and Platters

    Cherry had some large decayed areas which came out upon turning. You should see the bottom. Has some great grain so I turned it at a slower speed and left it thicker.
