  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. Coming up on the end of January already! Time sure does fly during a Pandemic. A little less, this week, from our own but a lot more from others. Our Patriot Turners- We had a post this week from @ehbowen asking for some information about green wood. Eric got his hands on some freshly cut ash and wanted to know about preserving it. The post generated a lot of comments on turning, sanding project supplies and more. Maybe you can help give Eric some ideas. Check out his original post. @Pauley had a problem with some of his sanding discs and asked our turners for some ideas. The conversation yielded lots of sanding techniques information and sources for sanding supplies. @Gerald provided us with a link- https://www.turningwood.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=T&Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=2S I checked one of my favorite sanding suppliers. Their prices were comparable to Gerald's- https://www.supergrit.com/view.php?pg=index @RustyFN gave us an update on the bowl jig he shared with us last week. He included pictures of how he mounted the jig on his bandsaw- @AndrewB Updated us on his pressure pot adventure. There was an interesting discussion as to how much pressure was needed to pressurize the pot for casting resins- Andrew, later, showed us the results of his first casting attempt- I often reference Alumilite in these posts. I have no connection with them other than learning a lot from their videos. This particular video provides tips and techniques for mixing casting resins. Most of the information applies to any manufacturer- What’s Coming Up- A couple of events happening on Saturday, January 30, 2021. Cindy Drozda is hosting the second part of her waterfall lidded bowl. Check Cindy's site for more information and registration- http://www.cindydrozda.com/ If you have insomnia, The first Virtual Craft Festival of 2021 starts at 2am (PST) Saturday morning and goes until 6pm (PST) Saturday evening. Click on the above image for the link to the schedule and presenters. This is a free event and all presenters use their own YouTube channel for their demonstration. There is a link for each presenter in their bio on the website linked in the above image. For The Newbies- Mike Peace continues his critique of carbine turning tools. If you've followed Mike for any length of time you know he has always used traditional HSS tools. This video is a little long but it not only demonstrates turning but also gives us some insights on design. Expand Your Horizons- If the previous "twig pot" video looked like something you might try, but, you wanted your turning to be more hollowed out, this video may help you decide which hollowing tool to buy/use. Looking for a way to make that cracked/split bowl a work of art? Here's one turner's take on what to do- Bowl Stitching! Good information- video of a demonstration- New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a very nice sanding deal going on with the Roloc mandrels and pad holders Check it out, here- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/ultimate-sanding-system/products/ultimate-2-and-3-inch-sanding-kit This really isn't a new item but we touched on it a bit last week. The shop made steady Rest from Alan Stratton. This video shows a bit more about it- These links have more written details- https://www.aswoodturns.com/ https://www.aswoodturns.com/2014/09/steady-update/ https://www.aswoodturns.com/2013/08/lathe-steady-rest/ Everything Else- Rick Turns YouTube video list from last week- I haven't been in the shop this week. Been writing Micro Credentials for the National Occupation Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI). A long time friend is the CEO and called to get some help in the Electrical/Electronics areas. I had forgotten how tedious writing those things can be! Safe turning and stay well
  5. I've been interested in trying resin casting and turning for bowls. Although I'm not interested enough just yet to purchase a pressure pot. I've been trying to research resins that I can mix that do NOT require a pressure pot and just time to cure with a bit of color as well. I think I want to try a couple of times with the resin so I can get familiar with it if I ever decide to get into the resin stuff. I do plan on going for the gallon bottles off the bat so that I know I have enough to make a couple blanks to test. But I'm unsure of what I would need to pick up for non pressure pot resins, I did do a google search only thing I've seen in research so far is Polyresin and it's recommending adding color. Now that I've got the lathe speeds adjusted Id feel more comfortable doing a bit of resin trials. Any other info would be good to know thanks.
