  1. I know you probably don't want to hear this, but Christmas is only 2 months away. Lockdowns and job layoffs are really affecting everyone. Again, this year, we will have the opportunity to make one family's Christmas not so bleak. Please check out this information on our annual Adopt-a-Family project- Also, reminding our turners to please add tags to their posts. Those tags help us all when searching for specific information. Our Patriot Turners- Today, @Gerald added an extremely informative blog on drying turned wood. I had asked Gerald what his tec
  2. Hope this finds all of you and your families safe and well. The weather here has been beautiful. Even had an awesome thunderstorm last night. Our Patriot Turners- @FrederickH managed to score some really nice turning tools and asked our members their opinions. Check out his post and see if you can provide some additional advice- Most of us have been asked to stay at home during this health crisis. One of the other forums, at the Patriot, is showing our members' quarantine project. @John Hechel posted a beautiful walnut
  3. Last year I bought a couple of turning blocks from Rockler. They were not large and were coated in a good coat of wax. It was an experiment for me. I wanted a source of exotic wood in my area. I didn't get around to using them for a few months and when I did, I was surprised and disappointed. The wood was wet inside that wax. That irritated me, I was sure it should be dry and ready to use. Yesterday I returned to Rockler, because of my wife. She wanted to go to Joann's material store and it is across the street from Rockler. I was the only customer and got great service. I didn't complain ab
  4. Merry Christmas! Posting a little early as tomorrow will be hectic, to say the least! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald showed us his display and setup for the craft shows. Just look at the varied items he has made! No wonder they sell so quickly! There are more images in his post- From last week's Wednesdays post, there was some comments about turning bowls. @Gerald added some great information and links in response to the comments. Thanks, Gerald, for jumping in on this! @HandyDan created some awesome inside out orn
  5. Just use your best guess about how long would it take for this bowl blank to dry? It has been coated with Anchorseal. I am just trying to get an idea so I could decide if I wanted to buy blanks and dry them. https://www.ebay.com/itm/BEAUTIFUL-SYCAMORE-BOWL-BLANK-LATHE-TURNING-CARVE-LUMBER-WOOD-10-X-10-X-3/382303997701?hash=item5903180f05:g:jfsAAMXQwMdREp33
  6. Remember- Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald is trying out some new coloring techniques. His turning/coloring really creates some interesting designs in the wood! Please head on over to Geralds post and let him know how much you like this piece- Gerald also showed us a round hollow form that his coloring really made the grain of the wood stand out! Gerald explains what he did in his post @HandyDan gave us a really nice set of pictures on how he made his baby rattles- Check out
  7. Wow! May is almost in the books! Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier isn't waiting for December to turn ornaments! Here is his latest beauty- Ron really creates some stunning pieces from Spectraply. @Gerald started a post on a shop made texturing tool. These are really useful for embellishing the bottom of vessels and lids of turned boxes. Gerald's post contains a link to the "how-to" tutorial. This post also has some super information on photography lighting. Gerald also posted a topic on d
  8. First day of spring!!!!!!!!! Let's hope Mother Nature cooperates with the calendar! Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan has upped his game with the pens he makes. Dan shows us how he changes the finish on the pen parts- He explains the process using a video he found on YouTube- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for a link to the show's web site. If you are anywhere near Lexington, KY this coming weekend, here's something you don't want to miss! A super chance to pick up some of those great Ea
  9. Kids got out of school for the summer, today. No subbing until August! Lots of activity by our Patriot turners this week! @PostalTom made a set of pen jaws from an article by Mr. David Reed Smith. Tom reports that the jaws worked like a charm. Check out the sweet looking pen he made using the jaws- @Charles Nicholls has been turning some gorgeous bottle stoppers. Charles answers comments about this project in his post- @Steve Krumanaker is adding details to a b
  10. Temperature was in the 70's here the past two days but that's about to come to an end tonight. It was just too nice to do much in the shop. Just a heads up for those near Secaucus, NJ. Our most generous sponsor Easy Wood Tools will be at the Woodworking Show there- Click on the image for more details and ticket information. Last weeks "Wednesday's..." started a great discussion on pricing your work. @DAB asked about how we set the price on our turnings. Check out what our turners had to say. @Steve Krumanaker sent me
  11. I noticed today that the BOC bowls I rough turned seem to be drying much faster than usual. I know the air is dry even tho it has rained a lot. Earlier this week the RH in the shop was 35. Just wonder if anyone else had noticed this in colder weather?
  12. Interesting article https://www.woodworkingnetwork.com/wood/components-sourcing/why-does-wood-change-color?utm_source=Real_Magnet&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=byhammerandhand@yahoo.com&utm_content=DAILY BRIEF&utm_campaign=Why does wood change color%3F "If someone wants the same, uniform, predictable color, go with plastic." LOL
  13. next time you have a lot of finished pieces to let dry try using kid's playing jacks as spacers instead of painter's pyramids.. cheap and w/ their ball ends less prone to dimples and piercing... very useful when you are applying finishes to your pieces horizontally too...
