My Clubs and Organizations

  1. A little longer post this week. Was away last week and didn't have access to my weekly list of stuff to post. Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN posted a picture of a bowl he started for a continuing project with the turning club in which he is a member. Rusty showed us a picture of what will be added to this turning, during a future club meeting. Turning can be a messy hobby. Rusty posted some of his by-products- @AndrewB continues working on pepper mills. In this post, he shows us one of his maple mills assembled and finis
  2. It's been computer madness here so far this week! I think I need a vacation!!! Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB used a glued up poplar blank for a pepper grinder. Looks really nice. He shows us some progression shots in this post- Andrew has found a new source for turning blanks. He gives us the low down in this post- @RustyFN gave us an update on the platter he started last week- Check Rusty's post for additional pictures and the start to finish thread- Rusty has also been busy with his
  3. Before we get into our own turners, please watch this inspiring video from Tim Yoder- Our Patriot Turners- Lots going on this week! @Masonsailor posted a question about chucks. Paul is considering "beefier" chuck and asked our turners about a Nova G3. Maybe you have some experience with this chuck and can provide some input to help him out- @HandyDan is involved with turning pens for our troops. He showed us his latest batch- This is fantastic program for giving a little something back to the guys and gals away from ho
  4. Coming up on the end of January already! Time sure does fly during a Pandemic. A little less, this week, from our own but a lot more from others. Our Patriot Turners- We had a post this week from @ehbowen asking for some information about green wood. Eric got his hands on some freshly cut ash and wanted to know about preserving it. The post generated a lot of comments on turning, sanding project supplies and more. Maybe you can help give Eric some ideas. Check out his original post. @Pauley had a problem with some of his sanding discs and
  5. Just a gentle reminder- When posting threads, PLEASE add tags to your posts. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier asked us for ideas about modifications that could be made to make his lathe run slower. He received lots of comments and suggestions. If you have any recommendations, maybe you could help him out- Ron also posted a few more ornaments he finished and explained how he made some of the marvelous designs- @RustyFN Has been really busy this week! He started out showing us a bowl he turned- Ru
  6. WOW! What a week it has been here in the Woodturner's Forum. Forgive me if I missed a post. Before we get started, please check out this post for posting your projects. We want your projects to be front and center in our forum and get the attention they deserve- Our Patriot Turners- @John Hechel is cranking out some awesome French rolling pins. He certainly has his work cut out for him. In his post, John explains his processes and some of his techniques- @RustyFN brought us up to date on the bowl and emblem
  7. Friday is Christmas, guess I'd better start thinking about doing some shopping. Hope everyone here at the Patriot Woodworker has a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy new year! Our Patriot Turners- Speaking of Christmas presents, @Masonsailor completed another turning to add to his list of items. Paul provides some process shot of this piece in his post- @Steve Krumanaker tried out a new design for his bird house ornaments. It's really quite spectacular- Steve tells us where he "appropriated" this
  8. So this will be the first larger project that I've done... It was a bit tricky using the HF lathe. How ever I have a resolve for that depending on the outcome of some things. Either way at least if that gets taken care of I should have a new lathe before I actually have to go and finish this off. But I think this bowl is around 8 to 10 inches in diameter and probably 3 and a half to 4 inches in depth. So the largest project I've done so far with the tools I have. It was a bit tricky. Either way its not at is final shape but its shaped and hollowed out and got it in its box of wood shavi
  9. Well so far the big snow storm has been more hype than happen. About 6" on the ground and very little happening now. The weather folks are still predicting it to pick up over night. I guess we'll see. Nine days until Christmas!! Although we exceeded our goal for our Gold Star family, you can still donate and get in on the raffle. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier posed a couple of questions to our forum, this past week. His first question dealt with a turning technique. Our members provided their thoughts, what are yours- Ron showed us some orn
  10. Here it is December already. Time sure goes fast when you are quarantined- NOT!!! Christmas is fast approaching and we are determined to make our adopted family's Christmas one to remember. We are 60% towards our goal. If you haven't entered the raffle/donation yet, please don't wait! If you have already made your donation, we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier's been busy this past week turning a couple of gorgeous ornaments. Around here, Ron is considered the king of using scraps to create works of art. T
  11. 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-
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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...
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
