  1. 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 beautiful maple bowl he turned. Steve's talent with wood burning techniques is awesome! Our turners had lots of great comments- @RustyFN started a log bird house. Unfortunately the log cracked before he had a chance to finish the turning. Rusty asked our turners what might have caused this and what could be done to prevent it. Maybe you can add some more tips/techniques that you have found that work for you. @Ron Altier posted a question about an unfamiliar turning product. Several turners offered identification and use- This little item popped up on Nova's Facebook feed. If you do a lot of both outboard and spindle turning, you might find this useful. Capt. Eddie has a new video on "Better Sanding". It's nice to see him still teaching and giving us great information- I finished up the handle for the hedge shears that were left on the front porch. Fortunately, the original tang holes were round which made the replacement handle easier to make. I used my steady rest to stabilize the work while drilling the holes. Then just shaped the handle to match the original. Used a mallet to drive the handle onto the tang. Finished with wipe-on poly Also got time to finish up the natural edge bowl made from that flame box elder. A bunch of coats of wipe-on poly. Safe Turning
  2. 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 a link for a fantastic turner named Virgil Leih. I had not known of him but I can say when he does something- he goes BIG! I really think you will enjoy watching what he does!! Thanks, Steve! @difalkner posted some Longworth Chuck plates he made There was a great discussion about the layout of the arcs. Read all of the information- @HandyDan came up with an inspired way to add treads to a project. You really need to see this tutorial! Read the complete step-by-step- @RustyFN posted some pictures of prepping a log into future bowl blanks He also received some advice about sealing the blanks to help slow down the cracking- @Gene Howe sent me a link to a turner and machinist. Gene was at a gathering of Arizona woodturners and Jerry Marcantel was demonstrating some of the turning devices he has developed. Here is a video from Jerry's YouTube channel. He has other videos there as well. Thanks, Gene!! This link is to his website- https://www.woodturnerstools.com/ . He has some beautiful turnings posted there. A short video from Mike Peace making a shaving brush. Not extremely difficult and would probably make a nice present for someone. Safe Turning

    Faster drying

    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?

    Why does wood change color?

    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
  5. 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...

    Rockler turning blocks

    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 about the block I had gotten, but asked how to properly use those waxed blocks. He said " Remove the wax and place in a paper bag. Then after 30 days it should be OK to use." It has to have time to dry out evenly. I sure wish someone had said that before or at least some instructions on the wood. As we were talking he noticed my Viet Nam vet pin on my hat and we had a conversation about things. He too, had some bad memories and we immediately knew the brotherhood. As I checked out, I asked if Rockler had a veterans discount, He said, "Brother, today we do"

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.
