  1. Thanks, Mike, for reminding us of how we have the freedoms we enjoy today- Our Patriot Turners- @Roy gave us an update on how his sphere jig is working. In his post he explains the significance of the choice of spheres. I can't imagine how he did the glue-up! @forty_caliber posted another beautiful bowl he turned from pecan He answers questions about the awesome center medallion he uses to sign his work- check this post @Gerald gave us a look at his setup for turning spoons without the aid of special jigs- He received lots of comments about his setup- Gerald also posted some of the ornaments he turned using an idea from last week's "4 Ways" Here's more from Gerald- Gerald's post got me thinking about some of the ornaments our members turned in years gone by. We had links to lots of design for ideas. Thought it would be nice to bring back some of them to stir your imaginations- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/turn-a-terrific-tree-ornament http://www.crwoodturner.com/files/how-to/ornaments.pdf http://kurthertzog.com/articles/creatingshellornamentsrev3red.pdf https://blog.woodturnerscatalog.com/2012/12/turning-a-snowman-box/ What’s Coming Up- https://community.woodturner.org/events/event-description?CalendarEventKey=a2728bff-a39d-4375-adee-018b90a311c9&Home=%2fevents%2fird-demonstrations&_zs=ceDib&_zl=rpKp3 For The Newbies- Thinking about turning duplicate parts? The December/January 2024 issue of Woodcraft Magazine's "Top Tip" in Tips & Tricks (pp 16) has a really neat lathe duplication jig. It uses your own turning tools and all the parts can be located at the Borgs. Check it out!! Expand Your Horizons- Craft Supplies USA posted a video on using CA glue as a finish. Another option for finishing some of your turnings- A nice pendant turning article from the AAW- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Resources/AmericanWoodturner/Articles-of-the-Week/2023/Tapered_Pendants.aspx?fbclid=IwAR3-6_s7nGVLEWvSgj9xpaXmybwFANI6UeAqDATbON-6HZpEGIrlh_En8io New Turning Items- Couldn't find anything special but remember Woodturners Wonders is running a daily sale- see last weeks "Wednesday's" for the list. Everything Else- I finished up the height adjust table to help accurately focus my engraving laser. It does work. Had to add up/down arrows to the adjustment knob after the pictures were taken. Finished table- Laser setup. The drill press table adjustment crank handle is visible back behind the orange laser safety shield. Very difficult to access to make focus adjustments. In action- Last week, at the local turner's club, one member demonstrated making a Christmas tree from a fresh cut limb. Thought I'd give it a try. Took longer to do the star than to turn the tree. Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools- except the star which was formed from a ball integral to the top of the tree. Cut out with a sharp utility knife. Star has gold leaf. Gonna leave the tree natural. Sort of a "primitive" item. From Ron Brown's newsletter- Curiosity As a child, whenever my mother gave me a new toy, it always came with the strong admonition “Don’t take it apart.” I’ve always had an intense curiosity for how things work, and how they do what they do. I had to see inside to understand them. So, I took them apart. I’ve been like that for as long as I can remember. In high school, I excelled in my field of study not because I was a good student, but because I needed to know what they were talking about to satisfy my curiosity. I went to work with the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe railroad at the age of 19 as a long-haul brakeman. I had endless hours sitting on a caboose, so I read Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazines from front to back two or three times. Then I graduated to Family Handyman Encyclopedias, every volume, every page from cover to cover to satisfy my curiosity. Every new field I’ve entered is the same way; intense curiosity drives me to learn everything possible. Not because I want to be the best, but because I need to know everything there is to know to satisfy my curiosity. Enter the world of turning wood. There are so many different facets to learn that it seems almost endless and I love it! This is one field that I will never completely understand and that is why I’ve stuck with it for so many years. I would encourage you to venture out of your specialty and explore something you think you might not like or might be beyond your capability. I promise you will be surprised. Here are some areas to explore: • Bowls, Plates, and Platters o Kiln-dried wood, green wood, hybrid resin and wood, glued-up full-thickness blanks, segmented glue-ups, bowls from one flat board, bowls with defects left in, natural edge bowls, end-grain blanks, blanks from root balls, blanks from crotches, exotic species from far away countries, construction grade lumber, laminated beams, from tiny to enormous, just to name a few. • Hollow Forms o Tall and narrow, short and wide, small requiring special shop-made tools, large in diameter requiring captive hollowing rigs or specialty hollowing tools, vessels with openings so small that you have to hollow through the bottom, impossible hollow forms requiring trickery such as invisible glue lines to hide your methods, dyed and tinted finishes, hollow forms with lots of carving and texturing, you get the idea. • Spindles o Furniture legs and parts, wands and canes, pepper mills, fancy finials, mallets, gavels, gnomes, kitchen utensils, turned-lidded boxes, tool handles, lamps, Christmas ornaments, inside-out two-step globes, spheres, items with hand-chased threads or threads from a threading jig, baseball bats, I could go on. That should keep you busy for a while. Just when you were getting comfortable you discover there is so much more left to explore. You will never run out of new things to try. Every time I turn around, I find new challenges to solve and that is what keeps me fresh and drives me to invent and explore every new day God gives me to serve my fellow men and women. Thanks for your support and encouragement. Safe turning
  2. Please bear with me. The following has many assumptions & when i'm wrong please enlighten me. Currently I'm in the process of making pens---by orders of SWMBO. Pen turning is not my most thrilling task. I am using CA (thin) & CA polish to finish the pens. Multiple coats (minimum of 3 each). This leaves a glossy/glassy finish---which seems to be the intent of using CA (assumption #1)---CA is expensive (fact #1). Previously, when using & reviewing the use of polyurethane, it also leaves a glossy/glassy (some say plastic looking) finish. (Assumption & fact #2). You can see where this is going--right? If the intent is to leave a glossy finish--why not just use poly (the cheap way out)? I have NOT compared the perceived depth of finish between the two (CA & poly) but would assume (#3) that multiple coats of poly can be built on each other to obtain the desired depth of finish. After building the finish, either with CA or poly, is it recommended to apply a finishing wax to the pen? I'm assuming (#4) that the wax would dull the sheen somewhat and possibly wear off with use. All comments, bombs, daggers, etc. welcome. Thks smitty
  3. Just realized that yesterday was 55 years ago that I was discharged from the Navy. Left Treasure Island and took a 3 day train ride across this beautiful country. That was the year of the airline strike and there were no commercial flights anywhere. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been busy casting and turning resin. He showed us his cast blanks and they turned out perfect- Andrew describes the process in this post- From this casting he is turning a "dragon's egg"- More about the process in this post- @smitty10101 would like to do some "inside-out" turnings and asked our gang for some help. He has received several suggestions. If you do these types of turning, please hop over to Smitty's post and chime in- @HandyDan is always making such neat projects for his family. He posted these turnings- Our turners gave him lots of praise for making these! Check out Dan's post at- @forty_caliber has been busy in his workshop! In last Friday's "What's on your weekend agenda", he posted three projects he has in the works. The first is a jam chuck- Next is a bowl made from pecan. Some really beautiful grain in this one- A little more here- And, a handle for one of his turning tools- @Fred W. Hargis Jr Asked our turners for input on turning a pepper mill. Several of our members have turned them and were willing to give him some help. If you have any tips that can make Fred's first attempt any easier, please check out this thread- What’s Coming Up- The AAW reminds us of future events- More information at this link- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Events/AAW Virtual Events/Woodturner/Virtual-Events/Master-Series-Landing-Page.aspx?_zs=ceDib&_zl=guGi2 Craft Supplies USA has training workshops- More here- https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/p/205/7317/Workshop-Woodturning-201-with-Stan-Record-August-18-20-2021-(Deposit-Only)?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=record&utm_campaign=21-08-workshops Don't forget that S.W.A.T. is live this year- For registration- https://www.swaturners.org/swat-registration-2021.html For The Newbies- Here's a nice little project to add some piazzas to your desk. Mike Peace turns a cable grommet- Not everyone has this tool in their arsenal but it can create some interesting effects. Carl Jacobson turns a beaded bowl using a beading tool- Expand Your Horizons- How do you finish your turnings? Do you like no gloss, some gloss or maximum gloss? For maximum gloss and wear, some turners prefer a CA glue finish. Here's a video from Darryl Jones showing how he uses CA and obtains some spectacular results. New Turning Items- Not so much new, but some sale prices from Woodturners Wonders in conjunction with S.W.A.T. Check their site for prices and more goodies- https://woodturnerswonders.com/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I mentioned that I had ordered some sanding/finishing products. They arrived yesterday and I had the opportunity to briefly try them. I need to do some experimenting with topcoats other than wax to see how they adhere. From what I've read, most any finish can be applied over the Yorkshire grit. That seems to fly in the face of convention as the sanding paste contains mineral oil and beeswax. I got a can of each Here is Mike Waldt's take on the product Safe turning and stay well
  4. Heads Up! The Patriot Fundraiser has been extended for a few days. If you haven't had the opportunity to get those raffle ticket, you're in luck! Check this post- Sorry about no post last week, we were at the shore last week celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary, Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN gave us a tip on where to purchase some upgrades for a vacuum chuck as well as some other great specialty lathe drive accessories- Check out their website at https://www.rubberchucky.com/#/ Rust also added a new piece of equipment to his turning arsenal- He received lots of positive comments on his acquisition. Check out his post- @AndrewB is finishing up a pepper mill. He is really getting to be a professional at cranking these out Check out his post for some more images of his progress- We don't hear much from @Cliff but when we do, he is always looking at some thing interesting. Recently he is considering making a thread chasing jig for his lathe. Hope he posts it when it's finished- It may be the beginning of summer but that isn't stopping @Ron Altier from making Christmas ornaments! Please hop over to Ron's post for a description of what he did- Ron also posted a picture of a bowl he found at the thrift store. Someone put a lot of work into this turning! Please see Ron's post for additional photos- Speaking of bowl finds, @Steve Krumanaker came across a unique bowl while on vacation- In his post, Steve tells a little more about this one- @forty_caliber put his Longworth chuck to good use in making a project for his daughter. He tells us a little more about this sweet segmented turning in his post- @Gerald got a great start on a bowl being turned from a root ball. The colors in this are fantastic- Gerald shows us some more images and explains some of what he has done in this post- Gerald provided us with a way to keep up with the Magnolia Woodturners Club, of which he is a member. This is a Facebook page. Facebook has become a popular way for woodturners to communicate and display their turnings. You can see some of the awesome turnings produced by the club's members by following the "Visit Website" button. @HandyDan helped out a friend by reproducing some chair spindles. These sure are perfect replicas! Check Dan's post for all of the kudos he received from our members- Although posted in our general woodworking forum, the content applies to all aspects of woodworking. @kmealy gave us a link to an article on pricing your work, originally published in Fine Working. A great discussion ensued. Thanks, Keith! New member @woodburner59, gave us a his first impressions of a new book he has added to his library. We are looking forward to seeing some of the turnings Scott produces. What’s Coming Up- With the AAW Symposium coming up, I've been trying to provide the latest information. These two items are related to that symposium. Click on the images for links to more information- Vendor Showcase! Free Zoom meeting! This one is a little bit in the future- Do you have a special interest and want to see/do an interactive demo? Captain Eddie and the World Wide Woodturners group is looking for ideas- For The Newbies- Another Mike Waldt video aimed at the beginning woodturner. As this is a live demo, it is quite lengthy but has a lot of great tips- From Woodworker's Journal, a nice project by Ernie Conover turning a tray- Expand Your Horizons- A short video on making a lamp from green wood, from Woodworker's Journal Captain Eddie was one of the early experimenters with CA glue as a finish. Capt. recently added a video on tips and hints of CA finishes- New Turning Items- Didn't come up with anything, although, the Rubber Chucky website Rusty mentioned does have an alert on their homepage to watch for some new products. Everything Else- Rick Turns You Tube woodturning videos for the past 2 weeks- Before we left, I did have a chance to finish up the little spalted elm bowl. I turned it to the finish dimensions and then left it dry in my little air kiln ala Rick Turns. Need to get some better picture- It's been warm here so I spent time in the cool basement shop. Got started on a large cherry bowl that had bee drying in the air kiln- Had to make a run for some supplies today. Mimi said she was going to vacuum the pool. This is what I found when I got home- They stayed most of the afternoon! Safe turning and stay well
