  1. Sometimes when I'm doing a turning there will be a piece left in the chuck that's big enough to get something out of. Often, I'll make an ornament body, or a finial or roof. Scavenged through the pieces this morning and had enough to cabbage together four birdhouse ornaments. I also had a request for a couple Ashley Harwood style ornament stands so I did those up too. The wood on both stands is walnut, the darker one has red aniline dye on it.
  2. Awesome news from our sponsor Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools )! Easy Wood Tools has acquired Yorkshire Grit. Yorkshire Grit abrasive paste produces a super smooth finish, with less sanding! Check Easy Wood's site for more information- https://www.easywoodtools.com/. This pdf lists locations for purchasing- Yorkshire Grit - Purchasing Options Customer Email.pdf Our Patriot Turners- @forty_caliber posted a pecan bowl he finished. The grain in that wood is spectacular! Head on over to his post and see what our turners had to say about this beauty- A couple of weeks ago, @Gerald posted a bowl he had embellished with flamed copper pieces. He posted the finished work this week. See how he decided to protect the copper- Gerald explains in his post- @Steve Krumanaker wore his Easy Wood Tools/VetsTurn T-shirt to a an antique show and was rewarded- Steve shares the story here- What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for more information and links to registration.

When used as per the instructions, you can apply any finish to the turning. Everything Else- Ron Brown's newsletter came this week and there was a story that we can all relate to when it comes to pricing our work.

  3. First batch of ornaments for the year. Mostly maple, cherry, and walnut, there are a couple sycamore globes. There is one sea urchin ornament, that one has ebony finials. We spent a few days on Jacksonville beach with my wife's brother and his wife. Two of our best friends in the world. Picked some sea urchins and this ornament will go to them as a remembrance. Most of these are dyed "inside out". A couple local gift shops sell a few of these and those are the most popular. To me, it's hard beat just plain wood grain. Thanks for looking! Steve
  4. Some children of EWT employees had a fun weekend decorating some of the donated unfinished Christmas ornaments. This is not all... more to come!
  5. A special thanks to Ron today... He sent 2 ornaments to Easy Wood Tools about a month ago, unfortunately they were lost in the mail. Ron went above and beyond in his efforts and today we received a very nice package. Thank you so much Ron for your generosity and beautiful contribution to our Christmas tree. Thanks again to all of you who have sent us ornaments, I can't wait to put the tree up this year!
  6. I think all of us appreciate what @lew does for all of us here on The Patriot Woodworker. His skills and generosity are off the charts! We received a package here at Easy Wood Tools today... Thank you Lew
  7. Sprayed a bunch of ornaments yesterday morning. Some of globes are segmented plywood but I also experimented with the marbling technique described in American Woodturner magazine. Also did several birdhouse ornaments and turned some tiny birds to go with a few of them. Thanks for looking!! Steve
  8. First ornaments for this year. I'm doing a demo Sunday on segmented plywood globes and different coloring techniques so I finished these today to show for the demo. This one is a new technique for me. AAW magazine had a piece on marbling in the last issue and that's something I've wanted to try for a long time. There was a link in the article for a kit to get started and I ordered one to give it a try. This is the best one I've done and it was also the first. There won't be any pictures of the last few I've tried just like everything else, there is a learning curve. Steve
  9. Turned these for the lady and her daughter who own the local honey farm that sells my mason jar honey dippers. They have been good customers and a pleasure to deal with. The top finial on these is supposed to be a bee hive and the drop is supposed to look like a honey dipper. Not exactly sure if I'm all that happy with the shape. Love the idea and concept and I think they will too. Maple and walnut, two of my favorite woods to pair. Steve
  10. Every year a couple popular youtube authors, Carl Jacobson and Allen Stratton, sponsor a Christmas ornament challenge. They are primarily wood turners but the challenge is open to anyone who cares to enter. It's how I got my start on youtube. An entry doesn't have to be a video, it can be a slideshow, just something to show you actually made the ornament. Remember, the entry can be anything from a turning, to a carving, to scroll sawing, or whatever. There ARE some nice prizes, some of which are from EWT. Check it out, it's fun and even if you don't enter it's a great way to get ideas for Christmas ornaments. Christmas ornament challenge Steve
