  1. to show daughter this redwood table and base and wow, no telling what I posted or if I even posted anything so I left that site...then thought maybe she might see this??? It has taken me many years to remove almost all the bandsaw marks but finally am making a showing but hey only about 50 years of sanding has gone by and it only seems like 49.
  2. 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
  3. Started today on a cherry burl my son gave me for Christmas in 2017. this is what it looked like after after cutting it open on bandsaw. Mounted between centers and tried to get a place to do mortise. No luck so went with a glue block. Used medium CA to attach this. finally got the bottom shaped and on to sanding which went well. Now on to hollowing and that that was rough. This is is what I started with. After breaking the glue bond and then breaking the sacrificia
  4. For a burl, is it best to turn it dry or wet? I have a friend who has access to Burl's on her own property, she would like to know from turners if you like them wet or dry, or somewhere between.
  5. I have a mature pine tree around 38 to 40 inches diameter between my garden my sewer pond and one of my pond dams. I am not sure what is attacking it, but it has hundreds and hundreds of these little 3-4 inch up 6-8 inch burls growing on the branches. In the past I just considered them a pain as I was throwing 40 or 50 burled branches out of my garden each year. With my recent interest in lathe work I noticed that people specifically looking for burls for lathing due to the unique grain and pattern of the wood. I went and collected maybe 50 or 60 of these burls up from beside
  6. That's what I was asking myself as I was turning this very dry oak burl that I had purchased at the local auction. Most of the shaping was done with scrapers and it seemed to take forever. Most of my turning experience has been with spindle turning for various candle stands.
  7. Finally got all unpacked, laundry done, dog washed and settling back into the routine. Our Patriot Turners- @FrederickH wanted to know about turning a burl. Specifically, if it should be turned green or be allowed to dry first. Our turners provided some input but see if you can give him additional information- A while back, @Gerald showed us some crosses he was designing for a group at his church. Gerald has redesigned them some and posted his newer version- @John Morris has added some new woodturning links to the Links Directory

    Oak Burl

    This is a piece I picked up when I cut some limbs for a neighbor. I left this a lot thicker than I usually do but in turning there were two long bark inclusions across the tenon. I turned to finish and when it dried there was in some areas a rippled effect that live oak gets when turned this way, but much more pronounced. I left one side high and one of the club members suggested I should cut the high side down. So I carved it down and burned the edges to match the natural edge. Started to finish with Mahoney's Walnut Oil and did not like the look so added about 10 coats of thinned Tung Oil. U
  9. Been really hot here in south central PA the last couple of days. I did spend a little time at the DCNR range nestled in the Michaux state forest. It was cooler among the trees. Don't forget about our site raffle! Coming to an end soon. Get your tickets for some most excellent prizes Our Patriot Turners- A new Patriot member and turner @Big B (Brian) posted some of his absolutely gorgeous turnings. Please head over to his gallery posts and see some more of his beautiful work- @Ron Altier has turned a couple new ornament
  10. Sometimes it really pays off to having so many good friends "in the business". I've been involved in the woodworking industry and have made many life-long friends over the past 35 years. Woodworkers for the most part are friendly and generous types in my experience. So I've been sitting on a piece of spalted maple for a very, very long time, waiting for the right project. We just introduced negative rake carbide cutters to our line here at EWT. I've honestly not been a big fan of turning resins / acrylics / man-made materials, always much preferred turning wood. When we tested these NR cu
  11. When I picked up the lumber for the 5 Walnut plaques (just posted about those) I noticed a 'nugget' on the end of one board. So I cut that off and resawed it today and it's gorgeous! It ended up about 17" x 20" x 1/4" thick in its bookmatched and sanded to 220 form. Now I have to decide what to do with it... I have a few ideas but nothing concrete yet. The boards were very straight except for right at the end on this particular one so I had to be careful resawing it. Opened up to reveal the nugget - Lots of surfacing needed to get them equal and level -
  12. I made this about 35 years ago. Make a guess on (what kind of wood) and what is it. Preston
  13. Years ago, I was at my favorite lumber company in Ohio, Keim lumber. They had this burl for sale. I would love to see what it looked like inside. It would take a huge lathe to turn it....If you can't see the price.............$1475

    Side one of this awesome pen. I finished it to a medium gloss with CA, because I wanted it to have a look and feel of more like wood than glass.
  18. From the album: Bottle Stopper Heads

    This is an updated view of an earlier picture. It's where I was rebuilding the wood. That whole dark area was rebuilt with the sawdust and CA glue that was shown as drying in the previous picture I'm pretty happy with it. It doesn't make it look like glass, but then doesn't make it look sloppy either.
  19. From the album: Bottle Stopper Heads

    A cherry burl "egg" bottle stopper head that I am rebuilding the top of, because it was mostly non existent. Using the sawdust from the turning itself to build the top and smooth it off.
