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
