  1. If you are hoping to get a great deal on those FANTASTIC Easy Wood Tools, here's your chance!! Don't miss out!!! https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/t/131/Carbide-Insert-Turning-Tools?b=Easy-Wood-Tools&utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=sale&utm_campaign=19-may-ewt
  2. Had the opportunity to sub in a vocational area I usually don't get to see. Worked in the HVAC classroom. Really nice bunch of kids. Well mannered and respectful. Says a lot about their regular instructor- who is a graduate from that same shop a few years back. Our Patriot Turners- Our own @Steve Krumanaker is turning into quite the Cecil B Demille. Steve posted two great videos this past week. One showing Bedan work and the other showing us how to used the Bedan in making a "honey dipper". Awesome work Steve and Thanks!! @Gerald gave us some insight on finding the center of a turning and why the center might not be the center! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to the show web site and registration information For The Newbies- Over the past several weeks we have been mentioning cutting threads in a turning. The examples we listed all used special tools and techniques to accomplish the task. Capt. Eddie posted a video showing another way to have a threaded project. As always, Capt. Eddie packs a lot of great information into his videos- Expand Your Horizons- Tim Yoder added a two part video on turning a ball (sphere). Tim says he cheated a little by using a jig from Carter- The second part of the video is linked from Tim's YouTube Channel. If you would like to turn spheres but would rather make your own jigs, here is a link to Mr. David Reed Smith's "Shadow Sphere Jig"- http://www.davidreedsmith.com/articles/shadowspherejig/shadowspherejig.htm I used this jig to turn some globe Christmas tree ornaments for the Easy Wood Tools Christmas tree. New Turning Items- New cutters from our most generous sponsor- Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ). These new negative rake cutters will make detailing even easier! Check them out at- http://www.easywoodtools.com/buy-here/ Safe turning
  3. On January 3, I got a PM from One of our members, @Dadio, that literally left me speachless. (Doesn't happen often!) "Hi John, I am looking for home for the Raffle prize I won, the woodturning tools set. I am not a turner,and don't have a lathe, not interested in getting into turning any time soon,so I don't need the tools. If you would be interested, I will arrange with John for you to claim the Easy Tool Certificate. Herb" Upon recovering my composure, I got back to Herb and informed him that I would be DELIGHTED! Long story short, today a brown van stopped in front, and the driver handed me a long parcel. The best present I got for Christmas 2018! @John Morris has already informed me that I'll have to try them out and post about my experience, which I will certainly do, as soon as my little plumbing job is finished. It's been a few years since I turned anything, and I am really looking forward to it! Meanwhile, a big THANK YOU to Herb. I would have said he's one of a kind, but there are more like him on this site. Thanks also to Easy Wood Tools for their support of our site. John
  4. Issue 86 of the Woodcraft magazine has a nice article/project by Carl Jacobson using the Easy Wood Tools negative rake cutters. Carl turns a hybrid wood and resin box. Woodcraft even provides OnLine extras to flesh out the article https://www.woodcraft.com/pages/mag-online-extras
  5. Well it's early, but we couldn't wait to show off our beautiful tree. Decorated with only lights and turned ornaments. Thanks so much again to all of the members of The Patriot Woodworker who donated their beautiful pieces. There is still plenty of time and more room on the tree if you would like to help! Merry Christmas! Jim
  6. Another post due to the generosity of The Patriot Woodworker! This time I have to thank Dan Hunkele AKA "Handy Dan" for these beautiful ornaments. Thanks so much Dan. Also... the EWT Christmas Tree is going up on Friday! More pictures to follow!
  7. Some children of EWT employees had a fun weekend decorating some of the donated unfinished Christmas ornaments. This is not all... more to come!
  8. This piece is full of cracks, knots, holes.... and I love it! I can't stop picking it up. I love the colors and grain patterns in this. Anyone have a guess as to what this is? 11-1/2" X 3-1/4" beeswax finish.
  9. A special thanks to Ron today... He sent 2 ornaments to Easy Wood Tools about a month ago, unfortunately they were lost in the mail. Ron went above and beyond in his efforts and today we received a very nice package. Thank you so much Ron for your generosity and beautiful contribution to our Christmas tree. Thanks again to all of you who have sent us ornaments, I can't wait to put the tree up this year!
  10. I think all of us appreciate what @lew does for all of us here on The Patriot Woodworker. His skills and generosity are off the charts! We received a package here at Easy Wood Tools today... Thank you Lew
  11. A big thank you to Steve Krumanaker for our first delivery of Christmas ornaments for the Easy Wood Tools Christmas tree! We will be very proud to display these beautiful works of art in our front lobby! Steve asked me if turning the ornaments with Easy Wood Tools was a requirement.... NO it is not! We support all turning no matter what tools you use... of course if you want an opinion, we are glad to give you one. Thank you so much to Steve. I know others have let me know they are busy working on them. Finally thank you to all of you that would consider doing this for us. We are going to have the prettiest tree in Kentucky!
  12. So this is my first ever attempt at a hollow form turning. Simple... yes Clunky base (I'll probably turn it off) But... I did it! Proud of myself for trying this. I've always been very intimidated by this for some reason. So here it is... Cherry... 3" tall, 2-3/4" wide. The walls are less than 1/8" ..... mostly
  13. This wood is just so pretty, it makes me look like I almost know what I am doing. I am a novice at best but I enjoy it so..... This is about 3" tall and 5-1/2" wide.
  14. Turning is therapeutic. Before getting into this week's offerings, please remember to add tags to your posted topics. Tags help forum viewers with searches and can add an additional layer of organization to the overall site. Tags can include, but not be limited to, project category, material, style, finish, tools, manufacturer, etc., etc. We've had lots of activity this week in Turning Forum. Some questions, some projects and some great suggestions. @Steve Krumanaker has gone wild with Christmas ornaments! Check out all of the ornaments and comments about how Steve makes them in these two threads- Of course not everything goes according to plan, as Steve points out here- @Ron Altier asked us to rate our carbide tools on a scale of 1 to 10. How about cruising over to this post and give him your input- In that same post, @HandyDan gave us a peek at his shop made carbide round cutter. Pretty Fancy!! @Gerald did a woodturning club demonstration. Look at these beautiful pieces- Read more about them and additional pictures at- A couple of weeks ago, @Jim from Easy Wood Tools posed a question about drive spurs. Lots of comments and opinions were offered. I saw this video from Mike Peace where he discusses the differences- I missed the notification of the Rick Turns woodturning videos of the month. Here is his offering for the month of September- I forced myself into the shop over the weekend. A couple of turnings- This is an Alumilite pen. Alumilite is a type of "resin" casting. It turns easily and polishes to a high gloss. This was turned, sanded thru 12000 grit then polished with Turtle Wax scratch and swirl remover. A bottle stopper from a hybrid blank of acrylic and wood. Sanded and polished the same as the pen. The wood appeared to have a burl type surface. The stopper is from Ruth Niles https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/ Both projects turned completely with Easy Wood Tools. Safe Turning
  15. We have a couple of retailers selling our products that have them on sale right now. If it's ok... I thought I would pass on this information to you. http://www.taytools.com and http://www.craftsuppliesusa.com
  16. As the Marketing Manager for Easy Wood Tools I put together promotional materials and ads for our company. I wanted to share with all of you a full page ad that will appear in an upcoming issue of Woodcraft Magazine. With Lew's permission....
  17. Introduction @Jim from Easy Wood Tools contacted us a time ago and asked us if we knew of a turner here on The Patriot Woodworker, who is experienced, and open minded to new tooling and designs, in order to fill a product testing position. Of course we could think no further than our own Lew Kauffman, our Wood Turners Forum host. After some back and forth and information gathering between interested parties, Lew was hired on an as needed, on call basis to test Easy Wood Tools products. Album by Lew Kauffman Candle holders by Lew Kauffman We are pleased to announce Lew Kauffman as an official Easy Wood Tools product tester. Lew is a highly experienced turner, he knows the industry and he has the pulse of the turning world. Lew's work speaks for itself, from bowls to chairs to candle holders (shown at left) and various other vessels and forms, he has proven himself to be a great asset to our own organization here as a form host, and now he is being called upon into service by our own supporter, Easy Wood Tools. What happens next Easy Wood Tools will occasionally send Lew a tool to test, and review. There will generally be three kinds of reviews that Lew will perform for Easy Wood Tools. Reviews of tools in the development stage, not market ready, but in development. These reviews are confidential, these are intended for product feedback between Lew and EWT only. Reviews of tools ready for market entry. These tool reviews may or may not be accessible by the public. Reviews of tools that are in open market, these reviews will be publicly accessible, as a review topic here in our community of that particular tool, and the review will be displayed throughout our newsletters and social media. Lew's reviews, both to our community here, and Easy Wood Tools, will be open and un-biased. We would expect nothing less of Lew. So without further adieu, perhaps @lew will step in and offer up some words, and this topic is open to any and all feedback and attaboys for Lew. Thank you for reading along, and thank you Easy Wood Tools for entrusting our very own Lew Kauffman with this important task at hand.
  18. Making it to the big show! Well folks, the longer we stay live, and stay honest and stay classy, good things just keep happening for our community in the realm of recognition and exposure.

  22. I posted a few weeks ago that we "rescued" some walnut. We started into it this weekend....
  23. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools I use carbon steel cutters/tools to turn with and like them a lot. I liked your comments on these and home made cutters. I do have a question. When I take mine out and run them over diamond dust stones.......................am I really sharpening them or am I fooling myself. I can see tiny scratches all over the cutter bit
  24. Squared up a blank for a rear rocker leg and backrest, and chucked it up on our Laguna 16/43 lathe. I have a home made long tool rest I made that works wonderful. Then I noticed my son standing around, this was last night, he knows better than to stand around me. He also knows better than to say "I'm bored" the word "bored" is a bad 5 letter word in our world, but sometimes the kids slip up and say it anyway. This time, he did not say "I'm bored" but he was idle, so I put him to work. I showed him the basics, and safety, and I told him "it's all yours buddy" and he took it! He's using an Easy Wood Tools Mid Size Rougher. A great solid tool, easy for sure! After he roughed it out, I took over and brought it to finish. The right end is the top with a tenon for a pillow rail. I have two of these made and they are headed for steam bending next. Go Pats!!!!!!!!
  25. From the album: Shaker Furniture

    Soon after I had the blank in the lathe, my son walked in and I put him to work on roughing out the blank, he did a pretty nice jog for his first time.
