  1. Thunderstorm in progress here this evening. Not too much rain so far. Please remember that our annual fund drive/raffle is in progress. More about the awesome prizes and what we do with the proceeds is found here- Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB wins the prize this week for the most contributions to our forum! In response to last week's "Wednesday's...", Andrew reviewed is purchase of Savannah carbide tools along with a link to a source- He also provided additional information on the Wen lathe he purchased- Andrew also started a great discussion about which screws to use when turning with a faceplate. Lots of great suggestions and ides were given- After Andrew solved the faceplate problem he showed us his candle holder Check out the great comments and suggestions offered by our forum members- Andrew also asked us about a galloping lathe! Unbalanced turning blanks can get your lathe walking around the shop. He received a bunch of great suggestions on anchoring the lathe. Check out his post and see if you can add any additional ideas- The fact that Andrew asks questions about things of which he is unsure has really brought our forum alive! We have had so many great ideas and suggestions. Thank You all for being here!!! In this post, there are a variety of topics, one leading to another- Please check it out- @Gunny is building a Lazy Susan. He asked us about how he could trim out the disks He is looking for a nautical theme. See his post and give him some ideas- What’s Coming Up- Don't forget that the AAW is presenting their annual symposium as a virtual event- Click on the image above for the link to more information. For The Newbies- A short video from Woodworker's Journal showing how to turn a small yarn bowl from a glued-up blank. Rob Johnstone is the presenter- We often show the work of Carl Jacobson in this weekly post. Here's a link to an article, from Woodcraft, about Carl and his woodworking and woodturning adventures- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/welcome-to-carl-jacobson-s-world?trk_msg=MG4VHH78BSLKP042QCRGRP2H94&trk_contact=QNSFAEQ45HFA1IHE09ORJKR45S&trk_sid=VE2RTBE6U7IN2QAPIP4HNBNF4S&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=WCBLOG%3a+WELCOME+TO+CARL+JACOBSON%26%2339%3bS+WORLD&utm_campaign=Woodcraft's+June+Catalog Expand Your Horizons- Have a chess player in your circle of friends? A nice "Rook Box" turned by Mike Peace- New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders Have a new Drive Spur. If you need a super heavy duty one, this might be what you are looking for- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/lathe-accessories/products/big-bite-jumbo-spur-center Everything Else- Rick Turns weekly YouTube video list for woodturners- There was some discussion in our forum comparing the finish obtainable with carbide cutters vs. traditional HSS tools. I have been messing/experimenting with a chinese elm bowl. It seemed all my tools- negative rake carbide and HSS- were not providing the finish I was looking for. A lot of tear out. Just for the heck of it, I replaced the negative rake cutter on the Easy Wood Tools "Rougher" with their standard Ci1 R2 cutter. Then cranked the speed up to about 1500 RPMs You can see (about in the center of each picture) the change in surface texture between the negative rake and standard cutter. For this particular operation, the standard cutter produced the superior finish. Chinese elm has lovely grain but is not the easiest wood to get a nice finish directly from the tools. Sanded and ready to finish out the bottom. Safe turning and stay healthy
  2. In an odd moment or two, I though there would be a better way to make a jig for box joints rather than the jump over a spacer version that you can use on a router table or table saw with dado blade. I figured if I made a jig with a bunch of guides of the same width and just ran a zero-clearance router bearing router bit down each side, I'd get well-matching finger joints. With that in mind, I cobbled the jig below. Ripped a piece of maple and glued it together, offsetting each side. Stop block at the end and just a piece in the middle to hold it down. You can do two adjacent sides in one clamping. It worked OK, nothing fabulous, nothing failure. I'd rate it a B+ Like most box joint jigs, it's got a fixed spacing, but that's OK, I can make more if/when needed.
  3. Not much else going on in the shop....thought I'd try a few ideas out. Was getting boring doing finger joints, anyway.. Laid out some more blanks, to make a box for a Stanley No. 18.. Should be enough. A little bit rough.... We have ways... Takes awhile, when you get see-through shavings..Then rounded up the Usual Suspects... Toys? Seems to fit the scale of the parts, better..pins first.. Yes, I used that toy knife. Was getting ready to trim to the baseline....then used these pins to lay out the tails.. And cut and chop them....repeat for the other corner... Then made sure the plane would still fit in the box. Other end can wait for a bit....Set up the Stanley 45 With the skinniest cutter they made for this plane....can't even use the sliding skate.... Used a pair of "holdfasts"...time to get groovy.. Both of the long sides got a groove along the top edge....and the end even got a stopped groove The "lid" was test fitted.. Needed to bevel 3 edges...once I had the width and length figured out....Stanley #110 was still being put to work...more test fits... Needed this to size the other end panel...as it will also provide a handle... Big piece will get dovetailed in place, the other will get a rebate, and glued to the lid. Bottom will get glued to the bottom of the box. May turn the lid into a Raised panel looking thing... Well, it is a start...stay tuned
  4. My daughter asked if I could build her a planter box that was bigger than those she found in the stores. On Monday We went to Lowes and picked up a couple of PT 4X4's and some 5/4 red cedar boards and a bit of ground cover fabric. I thought a box with 30" X 60" inside dimensions should work for what she wants. Took this old pfart 2 days to build it, but here is what I ended up with. Daughter is happy and I survived a minor cut on my thumb while notching the 4 X4's.. Nothing like what John experienced but enough to remind me stay awake when using power tools. After all was said and done, this is what we ended up with. Assembly was done using screws and glue. The bottom boards were spaced 1/2" apart and 3/4" holes were drilled to provide for drainage. The planter is 30" high.
  5. Ok...got to thinking Dangerous I know. Seems I have a stack of thin Pine scraps....and need to do something with them... A couple of my block planes do have a box to call home....keeps them out of mischief and a bit cleaner... But...I think I can do a little better than just a labeled cardboard box... Most of the Pine scaps are about 1/4" thick, if that......maybe connect a few into the proper sized box, including the "lid" That can slide down over the box....maybe use a sharpie to make a "label" on the end of the lid........thinking finger joints....green, or black sharpie? Will see how the bod feels today...and see how the wood "supply" looks....may have to resaw to get enough "timber" to make the boxes and lids... Stay tuned..
  6. This is not the Steven Newman quality as this is a rush job. My widow neighbor lost her husband 6 years ago. Last November she lost her oldest son expired from loneliness and not caring for himself. This box is not the best quality but will do. I still have to make the drawer and will post a couple of pictures with the drawer made and installed. This cedar tree grew in the back yard of my wife's childhood family. It was blown down during Hurricane Ivan. On this photo, I thought the phone camera light would work. I did not know it looked this bad until I was editing it for size. A couple more to come.... This is where the drawer will go. Need to do some sanding on the dowels and corners. And, need to make the drawer. I can't tell you why the top lid appears that it is short, but it does overhang by 1/16" . As you can see I need to sand with 180 grit before applying either poly or sand and seal. If I could afford the lacquer, I would apply that, but that would mean to purchase $30 for a gallon of lacquer, plus a catalyst from Sherwin Williams, plus an air gun to spray it. So a decision has to be made. Stay tuned......
  7. These are our two dogs. The one on the left is Mac. The on one on the right is Shea, we had to put him down last week. I used photocarve and 60 degree v bit to carve it into 1/8 inch plastic. I made the box out of 5 mm plywood. I used a 90 degree v bit to miter all of the sides so after it was put together you can’t see that it is plywood. I will take pictures of the box when it is sanded and stained.
  8. I made this in my tiny little shop (man, I’d really LOVE to have a window). Two are #4 hard maple shaker boxes with African mahogany tops. Also made two #3 shaker boxes from walnut with butternut tops. Hit them with some natural danish oil and after they dry for about 3 days or so, I’ll shoot them with about 4 coats of a satin poly. The hardest part for me is milling the stock to 1/16th of an inch....I seen to be able to get a better result on my table saw instead of the bandsaw....anyhow, I hope all youse guys are staying safe and healthy! I can’t wait until this comes to an end.
  9. This box was made back in the middle of last year as a keepsake for a Sunday school teacher . She is doing a scrapbook for a grandson’s graduation. Well the book got too big so now I am adding 2 inches to the box. Doing this in white oak and I think the trim on top was red oak. The box has finger joints but the addition will have rabbited joints. This is the first build. This is the addon. Now considered do I want to just glue this on or put two screws vertically on each side.
  10. And then MAYBE just maybe this box will be done? Lid is filled up.... So is the box. Maybe some sort of swivel keepers? Gave the box a good rub done, after the lacquer coat had dried.. need to set things up to take some decent pictures of the outside. Still haven't gone to get a latch. Thing weighs a 'ton", too. I knocked down the gloss quite a bit. getting close to the end. While going through Menards sometime, to get the latch, I'll go past the screen hardware section.....those screen keeper levers might be just the thing....may have to add a strip of wood, here and there....
  11. Just a heads up folks. Also, see attached for the pdf download Wood & Resin Turned Box WWW.WOODCRAFT.COM Use these simple turning techniques to create a unique lidded box. Woodcraft Turned Box Resin and Wood.pdf

  13. EDIT- I am posting the Mad Turner's photos as the link to his work doesn't function for anyone but me- Sorry! End of October already! Heavy rains forecast for here tomorrow evening so I guess I'll have to save all that Trick or Treat candy for next year! Our Patriot Turners- New member @Mad turner posted some of his turning in a message. Thought I'd link them here so everyone can get a look at his fabulous work! More images- He also offered to provide the group with information on his methods of drying green woods. Maybe we can convince him to post his techniques in the Woodturning Forum- @Pauley showed us a lidded box that he turned. This one is a beauty. He asked us to critique his work. I personally think the choice of woods was perfect! Here is his post, see what you think and let him know- @Gerald asked us if we had any information/experience with a website called "Squareup". It is a payment processing site. Here's Geralds post and more about why he was asking. Maybe you can give him some help- What’s Coming Up- Tennessee Association of Woodturners 2020 Woodturning Symposium Coming up on January 24 and 25, 2020. Clink on the above image for more information and registration. For The Newbies- I stumbled on to this site from a link on YouTube- "JIM RODGERS ON WOODTURNING". Lots of short videos, information and articles to help the beginning turner. http://www.jlrodgers.com/basics-of-woodturing.html Also Eddie Castelin has the second video up for the Worldwide Turners Club- Expand Your Horizons- Carl Jacobson converted an inexpensive toy into a very nice looking turning, in this video. Notice his use of Easy Wood Tools! New Turning Items- Sorry, couldn't find anything new and interesting for this category. Everything Else- Still waiting on my new lathe. Hope it will be here this weekend. In the meantime I've been cleaning and remaking some of the jigs I use. It's always a pain to set up the calipers for repetitive measurements like tenons and recesses for mounting things on the chuck. I took a hint from a Mike Peace video and made a new jig for my Easy Chuck. 1/4" plexiglass and size for the 2 most used sets of jaws. Safe turning
  14. Had a chance to get in the shop so I put together some scraps I had to make this band saw box.The bulk of the box is African mahogany with a strip of cherry down the middle. As things moved along I got a bit ahead of myself and started to cut the drawers out of the top slider before cutting off the front and back . Found enough cherry to make the front and back of the top slider using the damaged piece as a template. The handles are black walnut.
  15. Today I made a band saw box out of a piece of domestic cherry fire wood. Herb

  19. Ok..box #2 is started...double and triple checked the saw set up... Trying to cut both boards at the same time, and getting them both in the middle usual luck.. "Missed it by that much, Chief" needed a tad off of one end...then over to the vise.. That #3 was made about 1905, or so..still works. Jointed all the edges until they matched, then Then shoot the end grain until they matched...that is two boards sitting there...laid out all four parts.. And found bar code stickers on a few boards...33 planed those off. Set all but one side piece aside, for now..Dug up the layout toys.. Bevel gauge set to the dovetail angle I use. Combo square and marking gauge set to the thickness of the boards, pencil for marking things up, and something to cut "knife walls" have the board sitting a bit high in the vise, easier to mark things. And, remember to always make where the waste is... Once all the marking out is done, I lower the board down in the vise... Wax up the saw...we have work to do... Just a little bit.. Then set up a chopping station..nothing fancy.. Chop 1/2 way down, and leave a small tab out on the end ( to support things) and then flip the board over That wide pin? ( yes, I do pins first ) is where I hope to split the lid off from the box.. I then use these pins to mark out for the tails...then use the bandsaw to make a few cuts... I use the bandsaw, so I can SEE the cuts better, and stay on the waste side of the lines. The more of each line I leave, the tighter the joint should be..cchopped the waste out, and tried a dry fit.. been awhile, might be out of practice? Ok...rinse, repeat...and get corner #2 done the same way... So, two corners done, 2 to go...then Uncle Charles hit...left hand cramped up, and the back of the knees....guess it be quitting time, in the shop. About 2 hours, in two sessions, today. Stay tuned...
