  1. Just a reminder that we are about 2 weeks into our summer raffle to help offset the costs of running the Patriot site. If you haven't already picked up your tickets for some awesome prizes, here's the scoop! Our Patriot Turners- Our turners were back at their lathes this week! @RustyFN posted his curly maple segmented bowl and it is a beauty! Rusty received lots of positive comments about it. Check out the post at- @AndrewB turned a slightly different style pepper mill. The grinding mechanism is different from hi
  2. Hope all of our turners have heat and electricity. Looks like we are due for another dusting here in south central PA. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald spent some time cleaning up around his lathe and sorting out drawer contents. That's something I know needs done in my shop a sediment shared by our members. @Ron Altier has been working on a couple of projects. He spent time modifying some canes he made. These are beauties! Ron tells us the what and why of the changes Check his post for some of the nice comments left by our turne
  3. Several years ago I made a couple of walking canes for my wife and myself. I used 1" dia pine stock from HD and some spalted Apple (maybe Maple) plus an exotic wood for the handle. I shaped the shaft with the sander and stained it. I stained the shaft and finished it all with a nice clear shiny finish. It was very cold at the time and I set them aside. Many things have occured and they stayed stored in a corner for a long time. A couple of days ago we went for a hike and I took the canes with us. I wanted to see what adjustments needed to be made in length and comfort. I knew they were too lo
  4. Dear folks, is there anyone here who is masterful at making walking canes? We have a disabled veteran who has contacted us, and needs a hand up. Our community is willing to pay you for your work. We will be gifting this walking assistant to our veteran. No disrespect is intended to our folks here, but I would like only a woodworker who builds canes and is masterful at your work, we can't risk a "one off" product with mistakes or a bad design style. Our disabled veterans deserve only the best. Please drop me a line here if you are interested in helping us with this
  5. Here are pictures of some of the hiking staffs I just completed. Merry Christmas to all. Don R
  6. It's been a busy week for me but no turning. Computer upgrades and a 1960's tube type stereo problem. Can you believe a 6GW8 vacuum tube is $49.95 + shipping!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan posted a pictorial journey of a super cane he made. He explained how he made this beauty and gave us some really great tips! Please check out Dan's post and see how he did this- @Ron Altier used his new Easy Wood Tools faceplate to turn a sweet little pine box. He explained how he felt about the new faceplate in his
  7. Got the cane I've been working on done this week. This is the first one I made in two pieces. I started out with two brass bushings. Threaded them to a 3/8" coarse thread. Turned them down to 5/8" and turned notches into the outside so the epoxy had something extra to grab onto. Took a couple 3/8" bolts and drilled a chamfer in the heads to give them a true center point to ride the live center. Did this to make sure they met well when screwed together later. Took a 36" x 1 1/4" birch dowel and cut it in half. Found the centers
  8. Saw this on another site today. Not my subject matter (snake or mouse) but the patience, detail, techniques, craftsmanship and vision is something to behold plus it has dog cameos.
  9. I was approached by a gal at work asking if I could make a custom cane for her father who needs to use one, but refuses to. I gathered some information from her about her father: 1) he was an avid cb'er - handle was night hawk 747 2) he loves fishing 3) he is a man of God (a minister) 4) his name is Sam 5) his favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:16, and..... 6) he loves the "fish" symbol With that information I proceeded to layout a customized cane for Minister Sam i am extremely glad to hear he refuses to leave home without it a
  10. A friend of mine hurt his leg real bad when he slipped on some ice about six weeks ago. After an operation to repair the damage he has been on crutches and is now allowed to start putting weight on it and walk. I made him a cane to help him along. I'm 6'0" and a 36" cane is good for me so since he is 6"6" I made his 39" and it works well for him. Turning the long part required a steady rest. The length and thinness made it whip in the middle. For the handle I cut a tenon on the end and laminated three pieces of Cherry together for the handle. I looked at examples of handles and drew one
  11. I have been tinkering with cane making. I made one and it didn't come out as I had planned. However it did give me a better idea. So I got out some Walnut and Maple put my idea to work and came up with this one. I like it, it is light, strudy and looks good too.
