  1. Hey gang, don't forget, we are into our site fundraising raffle. We started off like gangbusters but we have a long way to go! If you haven't already purchased your tickets, please consider checking out the fantastic prizes! All the proceeds from this fundraiser go to the operating costs of this site. Here's more: Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker set up a really cool way to visualize wall thicknesses when turning hollow forms. He mentioned it last week and had an opportunity to get his vase turned- Beautiful shape and colorization. Steve tells us more about this turning and also posted some images of the hollowing tools he made- Steve was out at one of the nation's largest "yard sales" and snagged a honey of an old turning caliper- Steve shows us more images and a little about his shopping experience- @AndrewB continues to create beautiful pepper mills. Here is his most recent piece- Andrew shows us some other views in his post- Andrew posted a couple of process shots in our "What's On Your Workbench" forum. Thought I'd add them here as well so you cans see what this pepper mill looked like along the way- Last week I posted a video of @Gerald's work but couldn't remember how I came across it. Gerald was kind enough to steer me in the right direction. The club Gerald belongs to is called the Magnolia Woodturners. They have a YouTube channel with a bunch of demonstrations. Check it out at- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxqC3z3zrAP-cICGwP-wiDw/videos @John Morris provided a link to download a portion of the September-October Workbench Magazine- the plans for a turned cherry planter. A simple project that could be turned from just about any wood. The PDF file- Workbench Magazine September-October 1967 Cherry Planter.pdf And the link to John's post- What’s Coming Up- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Events/Annual-Symposium---Conference/2021-Virtual-Symposium/Woodturner/2021-Virtual-Symposium/2021-Virtual-Symposium-Home.aspx?_zs=ceDib&_zl=NKsb2 Here's the link for signing up- http://www.cindydrozda.com/html/Signup.html For The Newbies- It's no secret that the skew is my archenemy with which I have a love/hate relationship. Mike Waldt has added another beginners guide to lathe tool use with this live demonstration and question/answer video. It is quite long but very informative- The forth in a series on lathe maintenance from Record Power- Expand Your Horizons- A nice kitchen project that involves some not too difficult offset turning from the Woodworker's Journal https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/project-double-offset-bread-knife/ Alan Stratton makes a wooden goblet from walnut- Everyone here knows my fondness for the Easy Wood Tools products ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ). I use their tools for almost all of the items I turn. The folks at Easy Wood Tools will be the first to acknowledge that having many types of tools (Carbide and HSS) in your arsenal is beneficial. What really bothers me is why many experienced turners tend to diminish the roll of carbide tools and their users. I recently came across 2 videos where the authors compare/contrast carbide to HSS. Both turners are well known and highly respected. Both expounded on what HSS tools can do and what Carbide cannot. In the first video, in my opinion, the presenter hasn't spent equal time learning the ins/outs of Carbide vs. HSS. It's disappointing because his was the first lathe book I ever had. This second presenter is more receptive to the idea that Carbide has advantages. It's still skewed somewhat to the HSS allegiance, but, that is to be expected as the presenter has their own line of HSS tools. END OF RANT. New Turning Items- From Woodturners Wonders a really nice sanding bundle at a great price. Note: this is a air powered device- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/pros-wonder-weave-snubber-hose-bundle From Craft Supplies USA, a new item for those who make rings- https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/p/58/7376/artisan-White-Ceramic-Inlay-Comfort-Fit-Ring-Core-8mm?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=white&utm_campaign=21-05-ceramic Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- Safe turning and stay well
  2. I walked into Walmart this morning and the local chapter of the DAV was collecting donations at the door. Around here in the summer this is almost an every 2 week thing, with a different veteran group each time. I don't mind giving them a small donation as i walk past, but I can't help but wonder if I'm just supporting a social club, or does this really benefit/support veterans in some way. Please note: I'm not a veteran and so have no understanding of these setups, but I've heard (often) that the VFW (for example) is just a watering hole. So for hose of you who belong/understand/support these outfits I'd like to know if there are better ways to support veterans causes. I'm likely to keep giving them donations at the door, but still have this nagging question about whether it helps anyone.
