  1. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. It won't be the typical holiday to which most of us have been accustomed. However, let's give thanks for what we do have. There are those who have a lot less and are in more dire predicaments than us. Let's share our good fortune with our adopted wounded warrior family. Please donate to make this their best Christmas ever. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier found a piece of long lost wood and turned a beautiful ornament. Ron wasn't sure of the species and posted a query to our members for help. Ron's post is here-
  2. Just started working on a couple of walnut claro bowls these are going well. The only thing I got against it is the simple fact that its an extremely wet wood to work with. But I'm hoping that they turn out nicely when they are finished.... Still trying to figure out finance situations so I can get the new bench top lathe and a stand for it that would work.
  3. So I've started again... The first bowl is a plain bowl how ever I wouldn't mind giving a go at putting some designs into the walls of the bowl. I'm not exactly sure how possible that would be with sanding and going thin on the walls on the hollowing. I've got two more myrtle blanks to turn through this is only the first one. But I'm just curious as if it would be to just keep it simple. I'm not good at doing highly detailed stuff as of yet.
  4. I know you probably don't want to hear this, but Christmas is only 2 months away. Lockdowns and job layoffs are really affecting everyone. Again, this year, we will have the opportunity to make one family's Christmas not so bleak. Please check out this information on our annual Adopt-a-Family project- Also, reminding our turners to please add tags to their posts. Those tags help us all when searching for specific information. Our Patriot Turners- Today, @Gerald added an extremely informative blog on drying turned wood. I had asked Gerald what his tec
  5. Finally got to work on the second bowl and its coming out quite nicely. If its not too nasty out tomorrow I may get both of them finished up...
  6. Started this myrtle wood project this evening. So far its turning quite nicely. I'm finding that even if it's dried out myrtle wood is extremely wet wood. Oh well it still turns nice. So far its shaped and the outside of the bowl sanded down to 600 and has a nice shine to it. Got pretty much all of the tool marks out of the bowl. Hopefully I don't crack the side wall when I go to sand it out after hollowing it this time. I've got the maple and this myrtle going to my older step brother and his wife they don't even know it yet.
  7. Here we are a week into October already. Beautiful day here is southern PA. The leaves are beginning to change. Our turners have been quite busy this week, so lets get started. Our Patriot Turners- A while back, @DRAGON1 asked if one of our members could turn a large coffee mug. @Gerald came through with TWO mugs- More in Dragon1's post- Speaking of @Gerald, he is experimenting with some new inks to add color to his turning- Gerald tells us more about this piece in his post- Gerald also sho
  8. So I received an order of blanks today from Cook Woods. I'm being a bit crazy with this one here I've started on a purple heart blank. How ever I AM NOT using the face place to start it off. I off set the blank a bit and went with the live center option. I wanted to try for a bit of a different pattern with the way the grain looks in a finished product. I'm not sure if this was just down right risky or plain stupid of me to do. How ever the main issue I've been having is the fact that the live center wants to slip on occasion when I'm cutting into the wood so its been a slow going proce
  9. Can you believe it? Tomorrow is the first day of October! One of own, @Charles Nicholls, could use some prayers and good thoughts. Charles is in the hospital and hopefully recovering but if you could take a moment and send some positive energy his way, I'm sure it will be appreciated. A little more information is here- EDIT EDIT EDIT--- Just received word that Charles has been moved from the hospital to a rehab facility. Things are looking up! Our Patriot Turners- Last week @Masonsailor showed us his beginning Christmas present project. He has added even mor
  10. So this morning I went over to home depot after paying the bills and picked up a few items to include a 4 and a half foot section of Yellow Birch wood. Just enough to make two bowls out of it which I plan on doing. I set the poplar bowl aside for the moment because it frustrated me it decided to pop off the lathe on me this morning while I was starting to hollow it out so I've got that set aside for now. How ever I took a few of the previous suggestions from thank you @lew and at @Gerald. I did wind up using a bit of sawdust to spread out on the glue between each layer of the blank. Well
  11. Okay so I picked up some poplar this morning I wanted to make two poplar bowls. I bought a 4 1/2 ' x 8" x 3/4" board of poplar this morning. I was able to get two bowl blanks out of it. I'm decisive on what to make out of the scrap. I've got the left over pieces that I haven't thrown out because I knew I could make something out of them either way any suggestions from you guys on what I should do with the scraps. I've got enough to either turn a mug or a goblet not sure on what I should create. I also got my shop area organized a lot better so its not an absolute mess so that's a good fe
  12. Another week in the books. We've had a beautiful stretch of nice weather here in South Central PA. Unfortunately it has been so dry that the forest service is predicting very muted colors on the trees as the the leaves change. Our Patriot Turners- @Masonsailor reminded us that Christmas isn't that far away! He has started in on his gifts already He received lots of positive comments on this ice cream scoop- Of course, @Ron Altier is always prepared for Christmas! He gave us a look at a couple of new ornaments he turned. As al
  13. This morning I've started on the next two projects I've got lined up. A couple of Bhilwara wood bowls. Should look extremely nice. I'm currently waiting on my assorted sand paper packs to arrive before I can even continue sanding on the outside of the bowl. But it was extremely smooth going on the shaping of this bowl. I've also worked out a new way of doing things as well when it comes to shaping. If I have two of the same types of wood, I'll wait until both bowls are shaped and sanded on the outside until I swap the jaws to the cole jaws for finishing the bottoms. It works quite well
  14. Here's hoping all our members along the northern Gulf are safe. I saw where Pensacola had almost 2 feet of rain so far. On another note, please remember to add tags to your posts. I try to remember to check but sometimes my memory fails me. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been cranking out projects like crazy this past week! His little elm bowl is beautiful- You can see his progress in this post and check out the comments by our turners- Next, Andrew posted his work on a bloodwood bowl. All did not go as planned as he de
  15. Yes, I realize it is Thursday. But in my defense- I had this entire post written last evening and just before it was to be submitted- it disappeared. Not sure what combinations of keys I pressed but I was staring at a blank post entering screen. Please check the "Everything Else" topic about Ruth Niles! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald showed us the progress he was making on a beautiful piece of cherry burl- a gift from his son. Geral certainly did this piece of wood proud! @AndrewBis not one to sit around and waste time. He posted severa
  16. Here are a few more bowls from the past, circa 2015. When I was working for a landscape company in the Florida Panhandle, I was able to obtain free wood fairly easily. These are White Cedar and Live Oak. Both are surprisingly pretty. I especially like the dark brown coloration of the Live Oak. And the Cedar, well its Cedar, need I say more.
  17. Geeze, September already! Pretty busy week here for our Patriot turners Our Patriot Turners- @Smallpatch posted this in another forum but it directly applies to everyone turner here. THINK SAFETY!!! @PatriotWoodturning showed us some of the beautiful bowls he has turned- Check out his posts to see more of his fantastic work! And speaking of bowls, @PatriotWoodturning gave us a look at his method of drying his bowl blanks. Our turners added their thoughts to his post- @Gerald is wo
  18. So, as I stated in my introduction, I began turning while stationed in Alaska. Several of my neighbors were wood turners and after watching them, I was hooked. I spent countless nights in my freezing garage cranking out bowls. We even hooked up with a local knife company, and turned dozens of Ulu bowls. Alaskan Birch is one of my favorite wood species to turn. I also love White Spruce, but the sap gets everywhere when you turn it wet. It was so easy to get wood for turning up there, not so much here in Florida.
  19. So I wound up making another bowl I wanted to try out the Food Grade Mineral Oil finish on this one and I actually like it quite well it worked good fortunately its quite cheap to pick up. Not the best looking bowl but I'm happy with it. The EWT hollower worked quite well only had a couple of catches with it because I don't have a negative rake cutter for it as of yet but still either way worked well. I've still even got a wobble not sure how to fix it exactly.
  20. I got frustrated with a project I started yesterday due to wobble. I mean I've still got wobble in the blanks but its not as bad. I cut a mortise into the bowl bottom to give that a shot this time it was no where near perfect how ever it works. Hollowing internally does not seem to get as much wobble but when it does the chisel will bite into the wood. Also tied out cutting into the middle with the forstner bit as well to get a depth gauge and I think I'm finding that a better way to do do things so I'm just not hollowing until it blows through the bottom. Pen stuff should HOPEFULLY arriv
  21. I'm not quite sure exactly what this is here in the photo but this is a really nice piece of wood, I don't want it to go to waste. How ever when I started carving it down to round I started noticing the wobble effect yet again. I proceeded to stop the lathe. I was positive to get everything lined up properly this time, even too full passes to make sure I wasn't starting and stopping between cuts. Then I came across another issue directly in the wood. I'm not sure if it is a dry spot but it is becoming to be a pain and I think that is primarily what may be causing the wobble effect on the
  22. Fairly active week here on our forum with lots of posts and discussions- Please remember that we only have about 2 weeks left to reach our fundraising. Plenty of Raffle tickets left.

  23. Well Pennsylvania is slowly moving to lessen some restrictions but where we live things are not fully reopened. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier is still creating some awesome ornaments. Ron said he doesn't like this one but our turners disagree with his assessment. Check out Ron's post and see his explanation of this project. Be sure to let him know your opinion on the turning! We've had a new turner join our ranks. @AndrewB stopped by and told us a little about himself. He also gave us a look at one of his projects. Thank

    This spalted Chinese Tallow was almost too far gone. Turned a lot of air for the upper side and a lot of sanding . The natural edge was a little bare so I colored it a bit with a sharpie.
