  1. Nice little 3" snowfall this morning. Used the snowblower for the first time this winter. Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker Showed us a really neat beading tool handle he made. The handle serves the normal handle function while turning but Steve also designed it to act as a storage place to protect the tip during transportation- Steve created a video of the build and posted it to his YouTube channel- Instead of just making a just a handle, @HandyDan made a complete beading tool! Dan details the tool fabrication and the operation in his post- Beading tools and bowls dominated our posts this past week. @HandyDan has been turning some little bowls and used his beading tool to decorate them!

  2. Another practice chevron bowl.... lesson learned use some graph paper to sketch out the design so it comes out the shape you want. Cutting the feature ring. Assembling the bowl blank. Turning the bowl. Finishing the bowl JT
  3. I wanted to practice a feature ring on a segmented bowl so I started out with a chevron pattern and a simple straight sided bowl. Sorry but I didn't take enough photos of the process so the next two I'll document them better. Making the feature ring segments square Feature segments squared up and ready for the 22.5° cuts. Sorry didn't take a photo of the feature ring angle jig, feature ring ready for glue up Waiting for the glue to cure... Gluing up the segment rings Turn the outside and base Getting close Ready for the finish Two coats of Tried & True Varnish Oil The finished bowl, I think I ready to make the two popcorn bowls now...

Our Patriot Turners- @forty_caliber posted a video from Robo Hippy describing a uniquely shaped gouge. Forty also purchased that tool and showed us a little on how well it worked- Forty also posted some images of his new sander/grinder setup. I really like that flexible shaft idea! @Bob Hodge posed a query about what type of spindle gouge would be good for turning finials.

For The Newbies- Expand Your Horizons- New Turning Items- Didn't find anything new and exciting. Hoping Santa will come up with some new stuff! Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- This has nothing to do with turning but there is an interesting history lesson here. I was coerced into going with Mimi to Thanksgiving Eve church service. Fortunately lightening didn't strike the church or any of the attendees. Mimi's family have been long time members of the local Zion Reformed Church in Chambersburg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zion_Reformed_Church_(Chambersburg,_Pennsylvania) On Thanksgiving eve and Christmas eve they light the original chandelier for the service. Real candles, this chandelier is not electrified. Keep in mind the church was originally built in 1811 to 1813. It was one of the few structures that wasn't destroyed during the Civil War when the Confederate Army burned the town. Pretty amazing. Safe turning
  8. ...er um well there are bowl and spindle blanks here. Spent some quality time in the shop and managed not sail off the edge of the world. Offcuts certainly sailed out the door to the burn pile. Wore me out, need a new bandsaw blade and I'm done for today. I was listening to "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" while working through this lumber. .40
  9. For everyone who got to know Jim Luley, from Easy Wood Tools, he posted this message to all our turners- Please drop by his post and wish him well.

For The Newbies- Handy Dan gave us a look at his batch of Christmas ornaments. Here's a video from Rick Turns demonstrating how to turn another type- Mike Peace posted an video explaining why considering grain direction is important when making a turning. Thinking about learning bowl turning? Watch Richard Raffan turn one from start to finish. Lots of great details. Expand Your Horizons- @RustyFN showed us his rounded bottom bowl. Here's Lyle Jamieson demonstrating turning a similar bowl with a natural edge. Turning a bowl from wet/green wood is mostly a two step process. Rough turn and then allowing the moisture to equalize before finishing. Here is Sam Angelo's process- Last week we mentioned a method of sealing bowls/vessels using milk. This is an update from Debbie Coull Experiment in sealing wood with milk update: IT WORKED !!!! Woohoooooo! The wood surface has a waxy feel. Smooth. Absolutely no odour. The wood was sycamore, but I doubt it matters. Stone age man would have used whatever was the local wood. I will now use this daily and plan to make more. Maybe a cup to see if it adversely flavours tea, but I doubt it. The method the worked was I submerged in milk and simmered for 2 hours, then left in the milk overnight. I used semi skimmed, but I doubt that matters as it's the milk protein (casein) that seals the wood. The next day i rinsed with fresh water and left to dry. It was incredibly heavy now, having almost doubled it's original weight. I left it to dry for a few days. Here is the porridge test (scientific test used by bears). Perhaps others could maybe use this for their food bowls. I'm really pleased this worked, and I would have persevered until I figured it out. Ancient techniques may be lost in time - but they definitely have their merits.

  10. Frantic week here, unfortunately absolutely no time at the lathe. Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN rough turned a bunch of bowls- In his post he tells us about the type of wood and shows us some of the blanks- Rusty also finished a beautiful mahogany bowl Check out the nice comments by our turners- Last week, @forty_caliber picked up some really nice bowl blanks. He created some awesome pieces from them Check out more from his continued post- What’s Coming Up- Lots happening in the near future. Click on the images for links to more information and registration. For The Newbies- This is copied and pasted from Ron Brown's latest newsletter. Good advice for new turners when selecting tools. Should You Use A Butter Knife For Everything? Why not? Because there are times when a butter knife just won’t cut it. Sometimes you need a butcher knife to cut up chicken, steak, or a pork roast. You might need to peel a potato or an apple or cut up ingredients for a chunky salad. It is the same thing with lathe tools. Sometimes you need to slice, other times you need to scrape, and sometimes you just need to make a lot of material go away. When I first began to learn about turning, my turning buddies thought the key to turning like the professionals was having their tool with their grind. So, I bought a new tool with every new demonstration I watched. Turns out, it isn’t the tool! I began to analyze High-Speed Steel lathe tools and it didn’t take long to realize that there are only 6 basic categories for HSS tools; 7 if you include tools for hollowing. There are many different sizes within each category and many different grinds within each category. I even developed a helpful chart so you can better visualize each one. I’ve made it available as an Instant Free Download here: We call it “Turner’s Reference Guide.” You will have to be registered, also free, and logged into your account. I recommend you print this out and post it in your shop. My recommendation is to acquire a limited number of HSS tools in each category and add different sizes and grinds as you need them. Simply having 100 HSS turning tools doesn’t make you a better turner. This I found out the hard way. Here's the link to register for Mr. Brown's newsletter. Once registered, you can download the reference guide mentioned above. "It's Free"!! https://www.ronbrownsbest.com/index.php?route=account/register Want to expand your creativity?

In this video, Mike Peace demonstrates some of the tools for turning beads- Turning a bowl from a log can be done several ways and it's always good to see the method used by other turners. Here Kent Weakley demonstrates his style- And, Richard Raffan's method- Expand Your Horizons- Need to turn a thin spindle? Jim Echter shows how it's done. Awesome skew work!! Always fun to watch Mike Waldt create a new item. This is part 1 of an elderberry vase. Yet another scoop version from Alan Stratton- I happened upon this on a social media site. We are always looking for food safe methods of finishing turnings. This may, or may not, be an effective but it sure is interesting. This is a copy and paste from Debbie Coull's Instagram post ( https://www.instagram.com/p/Cj3BgYgjbrC/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY%3D ) so all can read it. "Sealing a food safe vessel with hot milk. No idea of the exact process as I struggled to get anything online for doing this with wood. Lots about how to do it with earthenware. So, since this is an ancient technique, I figured, keep it simple. Sycamore cereal bowl (hopefully), turned and sanded to 320. Exterior sealed with wax, interior left naked (I know the wax exterior will wash off after it's been in use and washed). Milk was heated till I burned the tip of my finger, then poured in till it lipped the rim. Now leaving it to cool. The process requires the casein protein in the milk penetrating and sealing the wood grain. I know there will be several folk comment about the milk going rancid, but I'm trusting the process. If it didn't work, then it wouldn't have been practiced for centuries." New Turning Items- Woodturners Wonders has expanded their product line to include CA adhesives.

  11. Well, a day late. Yesterday got away from me and by the end of the day I was beat. Added stair rails to the deck steps. Mimi has been having difficulty navigating the steps while trying to keep control of the new puppy. First one wasn't as perfect as I would have liked- angles slightly off. Second one went a little better. Apparently my Sketchup drawing was not accurate for the stairs that were already in place. Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker gave us an update on the platter he is making. The weave design is coming along nicely- See Steve's post for our turner's comments and more images of the platter- @Ron Altier posted one of his earlier turned ornaments- In his post, Ron explains a little on how this one was made- @RustyFNhas been really busy in his shop turning bowls, plates and refinishing.

  13. I posted this in a separate listing in the Turner's Forum earlier this week but am adding it here to help spread the word. During SWAT, our most generous sponsor- Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) donated the profits from a special T-Shirt sale to the Vetsturn program provided by ToolMetrix.

Copied and pasted from Mr. Brown's newsletter: Start At The End That sounds backward. There is a very famous quote from Napoleon Hill, “What the mind can conceive, it can achieve.” Scripture tells us that “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” If you will take the time to see the end, the finished project, and the final result before you ever begin, all you have to do is figure out how to get there from here. If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll get there every time, and all too often, you won’t like where you ended up. In this age of YouTube, Vimeo, and TikTok videos, it aggravates me to no end when folks present a video of them making something. They start at the beginning without any preview of the finished project. You most often have no inkling of even what they are making until almost the very end. And about 90% of the time, it was something I had no interest in viewing. My plea, especially in this age of hybrid meetings including Zoom, is to begin at the end. Have examples of the finished project, or at least illustrations so folks know where you are going. Then show them how you get there. Your presentations will be much more effective when your audience knows where you expect to end up. That approach also keeps you focused on the end result of your process. As an example, let us use something as simple as turning a natural edge bowl from green wood. It could even be a limb or a branch. 1. Show a finished natural edge bowl so folks know what you are talking about. 2. Begin with a half log with the bark still attached. 3. Mount the blank in the lathe between centers with the bark side toward the headstock. 4. Bring up the live center and shape the outside of the bowl including a tenon at the tailstock end. Be sure to leave a divot in the center of the tenon. You will need it later. 5. Sand and finish everything but the tenon. 6. Turn the blank around and mount it in a 4-jaw chuck. 7. Remove the inside and turn the walls to final thickness leaving the bark attached. 8. Use a jamb chuck to press against the inside of the bowl and turn it around with the tenon toward the tailstock. 9. Use the divot you created in the center of the tenon. Place the point of your live center in the divot and lock the bowl against the jamb chuck. 10. Carefully shape, or remove, the tenon down to a small nub and finish the outside of your bowl. 11. Remove the bowl from the lathe and finish the nub by hand. 12. Since the blank was green, it will go oval. Expect it, celebrate it, love it. 13. You can leave the bowl unfinished, but my preference is to apply a few coats of Walnut Oil finish. You began by showing folks a finished Natural Edge Bowl so they knew what it should look like. Then you executed all of the steps to make one before their very eyes. When you finished, they knew what to expect and how they can do it themselves. You are a master!!! You may have been the most effective demonstrator they ever saw. Follow this recipe and you will have great success every time. Remember that wherever you go, there you are.

Hopefully you can find something interesting within our post, this week. I finally put the finishing touches on those rolling pin holders. There is no lathe work involved with these so I'm going to bore you with the flat work. These start out as 3/8" x 2 1/4" x 23" pieces of walnut- Using a template for all measurements the pieces are marked Before they are shaped into ellipses, a dovetail is milled into each end to accept the rings to hold the actual pin. The rings are milled from maple and have the corresponding dovetail shape The top maple piece is an open ring- The bottom maple piece has a recess cut made with a Forstner bit Both are glued into place. Nine more to go, only took a couple of days- I'm not @steven newman Finish is next. 2 coats of oil based poly, steel wool rub down and an application of paste wax Next to install the hangers Locate the holes using the same template Drill for the nails Well this sucks. The shortest nail is too long. As Steven would say- "we have ways..." Hanger...Done! ...and finished- Safe turning and stay well

The walnut log came from her parents home. They had many memories of the tree and wanted some way to have the tree live on. These bowls are 5" to 7" in diameter and 2" to 3" deep. Turned with Easy Wood Tools and the rim treatment was done with a Sorby Spiraling tool. The round bowls were finished with mineral oil and beeswax. The natural edge with wipe on poly. Looks like I need to do a better job of dusting before taking the pictures. Safe turning and stay well
