    Still With The Cryptex Boxes

    Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve

    The second cryptex

    This is the second cryptex I've finished. I re wrote the border file and I like this look much better. This one is a five ring code as I'm going to use it for the demo at our next meeting of the NorthEast Indiana Turners and Chiselers(NEITC). Anyone care to guess what is the code?? The first one actually works smoother, I didn't dry fit the rings before gluing it up and I should have. Oh well, someone said in another thread, it's how we grow. Steve
  3. Spent the day riding herd on a bunch of electronics technology students. Our company left early so I have a chance to post this weeks entry. @Steve Krumanaker posted another installment of his laser project. His "Cryptex" is so cool! Check out the complete post and the comments from our Patriot family- @Gerald showed us his hollow vessel turned from spalted magnolia and it is a beauty- Gerald tells us a little more in his post- @PostalTom turned a sweet little bowl made from walnut and poplar. I really like his choice of woods and the small lip at the top. Read what our turners had to say- There is a lady turner, Holly Denney, who I have seen on Facebook. She makes turned snowmen/snowladies. Another turner, who also makes snow people is Mr. David Reed Smith. He recently put up his article on how he does his turnings. The main article is located at- http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/SnowPeople/SnowPeople.html Within his article is a link to a full PDF tutorial- http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/SnowPeople/SnowPeople.pdf And a link to his gallery of his work- http://davidreedsmith.com/Gallery/SnowPeople/SnowPeople.html If you have ever turned a bottle stopper, you probably know of Ruth Niles and her stainless steel stoppers. In my opinion you cannot find a better stopper (or a nicer person). Ruth has a really nice combo starter kit on her website. Check it out- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/woodturning/product/6322-five-star-kit Mike Peace recently added a nice little video on scrapers. Specifically he shows us how to make a burnishing tool to add a burr to a scraper. If you live in or around the Portland Oregon area, the American Association of Woodturners is having a symposium June 14-16. Check out their site for more information-http://www.woodturner.org/default.asp?page=2018Portland I've had 3 pieces of Manzanita laying on the lathe for about a month- trying to see what I can create. I finally decided on a piece to start with but the area to be turned was off center on the piece. Because it would be off balanced, I need to figure a way to mount it. As luck would have it, a turner I follow- Jim Jakosh, posted a similar off balance project and his solution- a counterbalance. I had a shop made hold down for finishing off bowl bottoms. I glued the piece- paper joint- to the wheel. Then added some bolts to the outer rim to create a balanced spin. Spun without vibration and so far the paper joint is holding. I'll just have to see what materializes from within the root. Safe turning

    1st cryptex, rough

    This is my first cryptex and what a learning experience. It's really a pretty simple thing to make but dimensions are critical. I expect it will take two or three more before I get any I can use for gifts. I have to say I am thrilled at how well the rotary engraver worked once I got the pattern and spacing figured out. The rings have the alphabet on them but the code for each grand kid will be their birthday as it corresponds to the letters of the alphabet, won't tell them at first and see if one of them figures it out. I don't think they can guess it out as there are about 3 million combinations possible. I wasn't sure how long to make the barrels so I had to trim them off on the band saw, shouldn't be a problem on the next ones. From what I understand, these devices were used to transport sensitive messages. Supposedly the message would be written on parchment and a glass vial of vinegar was placed in with the message. A person couldn't break into the cryptex without breaking the vial which would dissolve the parchment. I don't know if all that's true but it makes a good story and these are kind of neat I think. FWIW, Carl Jacobson has three videos on making one of these and that's where I got the idea. Steve

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
