  1. Wow, just had the last remnants of tropical depression Fred move through. Got a little over 1.5" of rain in less than an hour but no wind or other damage. Our Patriot Turners- We haven't heard much from @Ron Altier, but he has turned a beautiful ornament made from a matched grain glue up- Here's his post explaining what he did! @Gerald belongs to the Magnolia Woodturners. They often have competition turnings to challenge their members. Gerald showed us a box he turned for the upcoming meeting. In his post, Gerald tells us a little about the techniques he used to create this lovely item! @AndrewB continues working on his Dragon Egg. In this post he shows us the finished sanding/polishing. Your turners gave him lots of kudos on his work- In the Patriot "What's On Your Weekend Agenda?" @forty_caliber posted pictures of a couple bowls he is in the process of turning. This one with some brass inlay- And this one, which has a really neat shape- There were lots of comments and questions following each of Forty's posts. Check out what our members said following each of the entries. What’s Coming Up- Cindy Drozda has and IRD coming up. Click on the above image for the link to registration. Several AAW events. Please click on the images for links to registration For The Newbies- Woodturning Monthly is available from The Woodworker's Journal- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Bottle stoppers are nice gift projects and can supplement your inventory if you do craft shows. In this video, Mike Peace makes a really nice display piece for those stoppers- If you are looking for a source for bottle stoppers, check out https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/ @Gerald showed us a turned box he made. Here's a recent video from Craft Supplies USA demonstrating the techniques for turning a similar box- Expand Your Horizons- Jim Rodgers has a 2 part video on making open segmented turning. He demonstrates the glue up techniques and shop made jigs that assist in accurate, repetitive steps. And- If you are a member of the AAW, a recent email and magazine articles deal with color on turnings. Here's an excerpt from the email- Considering Color Adding color to woodturned objects is a fairly recent phenomenon. And, according to the late collector Arthur Mason, "There is no question that color can be a valuable design feature in wood art and that it can enhance the beauty and appeal of the work. But it also can diminish the pleasing effects of the natural features of wood. An artist’s decision to use color results from balancing these considerations, as well as from his or her ability to use color to an artistic advantage."* While applying color may not be for everyone, it can make the impact of a piece more dramatic and expand the artistic possibilities for a turned work. This week’s picks encourage you to consider and explore adding color to your work. New Turning Items- Sorry, couldn't come up with any new stuff. If you checkout the "Vendors Showcase" in the What Coming Up section, there are some hints as to what we can expect. Everything Else- Rick Turns list of last week's YouTube woodturning videos- I received a request to turn some bowls for a lady with whom I used to work. They supplied the wood (flame box elder and walnut) got a few finished, still have 2 to go- So far, I am really liking the Yorkshire Grit and Hampshire Sheen. My biggest concern was if finish would "stick" to the Yorkshire Grit finish. I used a piece of hard maple as a test subject. Following the instructions for surface prep- sanding to 240, using sanding sealer and then "sanded" with the Yorkshire product. From left to right, one application and no buffing- Mineral oil/beeswax, acrylic paint, gloss brushed on lacquer, gloss wipe on ploy, gloss spray on lacquer. These are the finishes I use most often. The film finishes seem to be unaffected by the sanding paste. The oil/beeswax doesn't penetrate deeply into the wood. A better test will be something dark like walnut. The acrylic paint would definitely need several applications and then a top coat for protection. Safe turning and stay well
  2. Hope everyone has purchased their raffle tickets to support the Patriot site! Only about 30 hours left until the big drawing! Just in case you want to get in on the action- Our Patriot Turners- We are going to start off this week with another incredibly important cause in which we can all be involved. It costs us nothing but a little time and can make a huge difference in a young persons life. @Gerald posted a little vessel he turned- This turned box will hold "Beads Of Courage" for the recipient. Gerald and the Magnolia Woodturners have been making these containers and giving them to kids battling cancer. This video tells us about the Beads of Courage program- Gerald also provide us with additional information on how to participate in this wonderful program. The Beads of Courage organization has partnered with the AAW to garner interest in turning the bowls- 2018_AAW_handout_guidelines.pdf In addition, Gerald provided the link to the Beads of Courage website. Click on the above image for the link to their site. Here is Gerald's original post- @Gerald posted this in the General Woodworking Forum but since many of our turners do craft shows, we thought it might be of interest here. What’s Coming Up- One last time! For The Newbies- Woodworker's Journal has posted another video, by Ernie Conover, comparing carbide and traditional turning tools. Sometime back, we included an earlier video on the same topic by Mr. Conover. Not sure what changed, but, Mr. Conover seems to have a little more positive opinion on the carbide tools in this video. Expand Your Horizons- The seventh and last part of Jim Rodgers series on segmented turnings- A beautiful maple burl platter from Lyle Jamieson- New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have added a new CBN wheel to their inventory. This is the 4 in 1 Plus wheel. More information and specs can be found at their website- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/new-products/products/4-in-1-plus-cbn-wheel We featured this Sorby product a few weeks ago. It has undergone a name change. It is now the Robert Sorby SteadyPro Turning System- Not new but on sale at a great price- If you need Easy Wood Tools cutters, now is the time to stock up!!! Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from week- Trying to clear out all those half finished turnings. The finished "square bowl" The elm bowl that warped and cracked and a cherry bowl that I added a rounded lip and foot. When it came time to finish off the bottom, the Cole jaws on the Easy Chuck stretched just far enough! This one is setting on the workbench with the poly finish slowly drying. Safe turning and stay well
  3. Space is always a problem for storing craft show displays so I reinvented my ornament display to take less space and be easier to setup. This one has a ball bearing turntable In The bottom . The towers are sized to fit inside each other. It has two less hooks than the old one.
  4. Well folks been away for a while. Long story short. Got laid off my job. Went to Texas as part of the FEMA relief working the COVID ICUs for two months. Found a new job. I hope to get back to some wood working soon. Got a new Rikon 6 inch jointer I need to build a stand for. Anyways here is the finished product I was working on before I left for Texas...As always I am open for any suggestions for improvement.
  5. I have been planning to make this display bookcase into a more user friendly setup. After some work this week getting the shelves glued up for wider shelves but fewer today began the assembly. As luck would have it the person who made this originally did not use glue only drywall screws. So I salvaged all the material. The ply back was in two pieces and for my design I had to glue these together with a scrap of ply. This is the before picture. The back frame is put together. Set up to drill for inserts to hold the back of the shelf and allow folding. The back of the shelf has to be rounded to allow it to fold. After some fitting the first shelf works. Now all set todo the other four shelves Monday.
  6. I left these pics off my post last week on the Monday so here are the pics of the setup I used for Jingle Bell Market last week. It was an unexpected success since this is something we started to attract new members to the turning club but may be developing into something else.
  7. Many years (45?) ago my father-in-law gave my wife an old pocket watch with parts missing. It is an very old Cartier. When I say parts missing, I mean the rear case door, minute hand and more. It is old bent and not worth much. However it is a family heirloom piece. I made a case for it out of a pentagon glass display I found at Michaels. I made a pentagon lid and base for it. I had a few problems with it. The watch face and rear hinges at two locations, one at 90 degrees and the other at 45 degrees. I wanted to display it opened front and rear. I had to find the best way to display it and maintain balance. This is what I came up with. You can't see it, but there is a picture of him on the bottom that can be see if you look down into it.

    Display

    Our club is doing a demo and sales event for two evenings . Had wanted a top display and finally got around to getting it done. When the kids take a test run with tops some of the tops end up on the floor so the sides will reduce that happening.
  9. I have a LOT of ornaments. I have given family lots of them too. I have about 50 hanging on display. I was running out of space and decided to make a couple of display stands. Each hold 6. What do I do with all of them, if I don't sell them? Most are spoken for by family members.
  10. Thank you for joining us. Below is the Military Challenge Coin Display as described by The Patriot Woodworker network. This is a design that we drew up with the help of designs seen all over the web, it is easy to build, most folks have the tools that are necessary to build it, and the finishing process is quite simple. If you don't have the tools that I am using, your sure to find a way around that, as this is as I said, very simple to build. This basic display is 12" long, 4 1/2" deep, 1 1/8" tall at the front, and 1 7/8" tall at the rear. The grooves are 1/4" wide and 5/16"" deep. The beauty of this design is you could take an 8' long board and mill the board out and groove it in it's entirety, and then section it up to make many coin displays at one time. This display unit will hold up to 20 challenge coins plus or minus as the coins can vary in size. The front face of the display is 1 1/8" tall to accommodate a name plaque if the warrior wishes to install his or her own name plate. I have found that our soldiers actually take their name tag off their Class A's uniform and apply it to the front of these displays. Now here we go This display cost me nothing to build, I had the wood on hand, and the finish on hand, it took me an hour to build this first prototype. I first started out with a 2" thick (8/4) by 4 3/4" by 12" long walnut blank. I then drew a guide line at the end of the blank, note I started at 1 1/8" up from one side to the corner of the back. After I drew the line, I laid it on the jointer and set a straight reference item such as my engineers square (it can be anything straight) to determine the angle I needed to set my jointer fence. I eyeballed this, it doesn't have to be perfect. The 1 1/8" side is your front, the front is where the name tag is secured. As you are looking at the blank, it is laying upside down on the jointer. The front is to the right against the jointer fence. I set my jointer to cut 1/8" increments, you can set it to whatever you want, it's purely a personal choice. After a few passes my blank is taking shape. The following picture is after my final pass, it really only took about 15 to 18 quick passes, about 3 or 4 minutes on the jointer to get it to this point. The final cut is a bit off the line, but I am calling it good. You see, this is not rocket science folks! It's just fun! Before I lay out my centers for the grooves, I set my table saw to 5 degrees and shaved off the front of the display, I am sorry I failed to get a picture of this, but just set your display upright and the back of your display against the fence, set the fence so your taking just enough off the front to make the front a 5 degree slant back as your looking at the front. Keep in mind, I am using a right tilt TS. Now with the front of the display cut at 5 degrees, I laid the first groove out at 5/8" from the front, then 1" on center after that, you'll end up with 4 grooves for the coins. Depending on what your blank ends up being, you might have to fudge the numbers a hair until you get an equal layout between the grooves. After I marked the centers, I laid out the sides of the grooves at 1/8" on both sides to make a 1/4" groove. Now set your TS blade at 90 degrees to cut the grooves, this allows the coins to rest in the crook or angle at the bottom of the grooves. Your natural tendency is to cut the grooves canted back, but the better option is to just lay the display face down and cut the cut grooves at a 90. To come up with a nice even set of grooves I set my calipers to 0.250 or 1/4". If you don't have calipers, plane a piece of wood to a 1/4" for a feeler gauge, we want these grooves to be 1/4" as close as possible. Then I set my blade height at 1/4". (ATTENTION, make the grooves 5/16" deep) Now you will have your blade set at 90 degrees, you now have your depth properly set, you are now ready to cut the coin grooves. Set your display face down, bottom side up, and with the front against the fence, set the fence to your layout line, and start your cut. I make about 3 passes per each groove, after the first two passes, I check the groove with my calipers to see where I am at.(I failed to take a shot of this process so I laid the finished display in place for a visual reference, sorry!) NOTE: the display is upside down, face down, front against the fence, rear of the display to the left of the blade. After the grooves are cut, you will notice the blade left a nice kerf mark at the bottom of the grooves. I took a very sharp Marples 1/4" chisel and cleaned up the bottoms of the grooves. I used the chisel in a scraping fashion. Be careful not to drag the chisel on the top edges of the grooves, it's easy to do, please don't ask me how I know. You might have to skew your chisel a hair to avoid dragging it against those edges. After you've cleaned up the bottoms of your grooves, you can now sand the grooves, I used a folded up piece of 120 paper, I wasn't making much progress getting the bottoms smooth with this method, so I ended up folding the paper around a piece of wood that could fit in the grooves, then the bottoms were getting the attention they needed with this method. I finished the grooves to a final sanding of 220. No one will be able to touch the inside of the grooves, so just a good sanding to clean up the chisel marks is all that is needed here. I sanded the entire piece with 120, 220, 400, 800, then a final burnishing with Abralon 1000. The Abralon actually burnishes the wood to a nice dull sheen. During the sanding process I paid special attention to the end grains, I love end grain when it is finished nicely, it adds a ton of character in my opinion. Below you'll see an Abralon pad on my ROS After we have sanded the display, I wrote a heartfelt message on the bottom of the display, and signed it on behalf of my family. After all your work getting this far, this in my opinion is the most important part of the entire project. This is what adds personality to your display, this is what makes your display unique, and none other in the world will be like it. On my display I wrote with a black Sharpie, "Dear Service Member: Thank you for all you've done, Thank You!! Drive on and Stand Tall, We Love You!! From:The Morris Family" In the lower right corner, I wrote the species of the wood used. Also, feel free to write your company name on the bottom, or brand it, I will be affixing a small decal on the bottom with our network name on it. Now we are ready to finish the display. I finished the display with BLO. Brush on the BLO. Let the BLO soak in for about 15 minutes on the entire piece then wipe clean. I will repeat this process two more times to get the BLO to soak in. I like the simplicity of oil. And for the coin displays, they are strictly being used on top of furnishings, not in moisture areas where a protective finish would be needed. I love the deep rich tones that BLO and Danish Oils bring out in furnishings. Once it's all dry and ready to go, I will affix four round felt pads at each corner on the bottom of the display. So there you have it folks. Keep in mind, this is only a guide to making a wonderful Challenge Coin Display for our troops. This is not the end all be all. I would like to really encourage folks to be creative, your more then welcome to come up with your own designs, and your more then welcome to use any type of wood. If you have any questions regarding this project, feel free to leave a comment here in this blog And, please take pictures of your displays and post them on our Woodworking Forum !
  11. The Keim Lumber co in OH is an Amish owned company. On display is tools of the owners father and grandfather. I thought you would like to see them. If you look below the saw top left, it looks like your mystery tool
