  1. This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use.
  2. 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 his past turnings- Andrew shows us his progress from the rough blank to the finished mill- Andrew also gave us a review of his new buffing system He gave us the link to this product in his post- One of our long time members posted his first turning. @Ron showed us the beginnings of a cane he is making- He received lots of encouragement and some suggestions on this turning- @forty_caliber poste a question about using the parting tool. Check out his post and see if you can offer some suggestions or ideas- @Steve Krumanaker started turning a tall vase from flame box elder. Looks like this is going to be a beauty! More images in Steve's post- Just a note here, if you subscribe to the Woodworker's Journal, next issue has an article about flame box elder- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/box-elder/ Steve has decided to up his game, when deep hollowing, and ditch the laser pointer for a more advance method of determining wall thickness. Check out his post on his most recent upgrade- @Gerald challenged us to post our Mother's Day turning gifts. Gerald's gift turning is fantastic! See additional images and our member's comments in his post- I need to start writing down the trails to some of the stuff for each weeks Wednesday's... I can't remember how I came across this video of Gerald's presentation to the Magnolia Woodturners- What’s Coming Up- A little something different from Cindy Drozda- Click on the above image to Cindy's site and registration information. From the AAW- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. For The Newbies- We have been linking videos from Record Power on lathe maintenance. Although aimed at a specific lathe model, the information can be pretty much applied to any lathe. Here is part# 3Part# 3 of Mike Waldt's beginner series for turners. Again this is a replay of a live session and is kind of long. From the World Wide Wood Turners, a nice demonstration on various methods of holding a turning. Expand Your Horizons- Mike Waldt has something for the more advanced turner in this video- Alan Stratton's take on chasing threads Mike Peace recently published a video on the various types of spiraling and texturing tools. Within the video, Mike refers to links for longer videos on each tool. He also has a PDF article that can be downloaded at- https://www.mikepeacewoodturning.com/2019/05/03/texturing-and-spiraling/ IMHO, there can be no greater honor than to be asked to create a burial urn. Sam Angelo has a video demonstrating how to calculate the internal volume using some easily made measuring devices. New Turning Items- Robert Sorby Brand Ambassador Darryl Jones introduces the Deluxe Sovereign TurnMaster Box Set- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a heavy duty compass capable of drawing 28" circles. Check it out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/12-inch-carpenters-compass Premier Gauges has some interestingly designed wall and bottom thickness gauges- More information can be found at- https://premiergauges.com/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I had one last piece of cherry but it had some pretty nasty cracks. Decided to see what could be found inside. I'm surprised that I could get this much. Sill a couple of cracks that will need taken care of At this point I normally submerge the piece in the soap and water solution for a couple of days and then on to drying in a paper bag with shavings. Turned out my pot is only 12" in diameter!. I CA'ed the cracks, wrapped the bowl in stretch wrap and put it in my little drying box (ala Rick Turns). Then for the cleanup! Safe turning and stay well
  3. My Dad is a member of a K-9 Search and Rescue team. lately he has been getting more stuff for base camp operations, one of which is coordinating the search on a map. The maps need weights to hold them down. So Dad bought these really nice brass weights. Two magnifiers, one clock and one compass. But they did not offer a box to put them in. Made this box and lined it with foam I had saved from various shipping boxes. Took some time to get it all cut out and supported but it came out pretty good. The middle dividers are a sandwich of one layer of foam, some 5mm plywood and then another layer of foam. No nails or screws, just glue and slip joints to keep everything in place. Inspired by @steven newman. Except for the paint. I finished the inside as individual pieces them glued it all as one solid box. Cut it down on the bandsaw and some minor flattening with hand plane. (Thanks @p_toad) Dad requested yellow, and some reflective tape as well as this type of hold down. I like the hold downs because you can adjust them for more tension or less as needed with little effort. Buy them in sets of 10 at a time, many uses. No fancy woods, just some scraps and some oil based yellow paint. Should last a long time.
  4. I'm not sure if this is the right way of doing things but the birch bowl that I started working on yesterday.... I started hollowing out today. I took the outside walls down all the way to about an 1/4th an inch or thinner. I still need to hollow out the bottom I've still got about an inch of material left to work with. I wont be taking it too much deeper because of the risk of blow through. Not sure if this was wise or I should have left a little more material in the long run or not. But hopefully this one will turn out nicely.
  5. Found this at harbor freight for 5.00( I'm almost embarrassed to say that). Veritas wanted 129.00 for their scribe. Sometimes it's the little things that make you happy.
  6. Well it is that time again. We have our last meeting of the year a week from tomorrow that is when I give the members something I made as a present. This year I made a beam compass for that once in a lifetime time they have to mark out a circle too large for the standard Scissor compass. There are many ways to do this,a string and pencil, not very accurate, a stick with a pencil taped to it and a nail driven thru,that will work. But not as good as a fancy made wooden beam compass that should last a lifetime and be handed down to a youngster who says "Whats that thing for"? The first picture is the mock up and the rest is the build. Herb
