  1. One of these days, I'm gonna surprise you all and actually do some turning. But in the meantime let's not forget our pledge to make our "adopted" family's Christmas the best ever- Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker added more birdhouse ornaments to the bunch he already completed. I think he must be staying up nights! Steve shows us some of the fantastic details on these, in his post- @HandyDan cranked out a slew of awesome looking Awls. As always, Dan provides detailed descriptions of his process. H
  2. 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
  3. Well I was half way thru this week's Wednesday's... and everything just disappeared Hope my computer doesn't have the Corona Beer Virus. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald showed us a beautiful embellished plate he is making. In his post, Gerald explains the process and techniques he used- @Larry Schweitzer posted a picture of a shop made tailstock he made from scratch! His work is awesome! In his post, he describes in more detail just why and how this new piece came into existence- @Ro
  4. Well, relatives left today. No shop time for the past week between subbing and family obligations. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier asked our members for clarification on what are the different measurements when reading the lathe specification. He received some great input. If this has ever caused you to scratch your head, check out his post- @Gerald offered some great information he picked up from a guest speaker at their turning club meeting. Mark Sillay was their guest and provided insight into several areas of turning. Check out Gerald's post and pick u
  5. This may not seem like it's turning related but it is. I want to learn a little about chip carving for embellishing. I have some boxes turned and ready but thought it might be better to practice on some flat pieces first. Glad I did, it's harder than I thought it might be. I am finding it's a lot like turning in that it's all about technique. This is the most basic cut and probably the most often used in chip carving, the triangle. Going to take a lot of practice I think. I can see some progress from top to bottom but have a long way to go. Steve
  6. Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve
  7. This is supposed to look like a rock wall or rocks in a bed of mortar. My wife says she likes it but doesn't think of rocks when she sees it. What do you see? what can I do to make it look more like a rock wall? Appreciate any and all thoughts, comments, or ideas. Oh yea, it's a work in progress. Actually, a try piece before I do this on a larger form. Honest opinions please. Steve
  8. We had our monthly meeting today. Dick Gerard did attend and he did a short demo. He is really into turning and embellishing spheres, from golf ball size to nearly 20" diameter. He demonstrated a few different jigs and techniques as well a few different methods of embellishing them. It was interesting and our meeting was very well attended. Steve
  9. Our wood turning club meets tomorrow at 1:30 pm in Huntertown IN. We are expecting a visit from Dick Gerard Dick is an honorary lifetime member of the AAW, has served on the board and is a member of the Indiana Artisans Guild. He is plannng to do a short demo with the intention of generating interest in wood turning, as well as possibly a full day demo in the near future. I see from the member map there are a dozen or so members within driving distance. If you have an interest in turning at all this would be a great opportunity to see a world class artist at no expense. Visitors are
  10. Finished these this afternoon. One of them I'm very happy with, one, not sure. This one I was attempting to make it look like trees and I drew them with inkscape. I'm just not sure how I feel about it, especially in the day light. Here is it with the lights down and the tea light on. I like it much better under these conditions but I think it's only natural it would look better in the dark. This next one, is a commission of sorts, although I know it's not something I can charge for. This is a tribute to a young man I've mentioned a couple of times. He was a
  11. Thought hard about this segment and came up with all sorts of reasons and justifications for even wanting a laser engraver. The honest truth is, I've just always liked gadgets. Never mind I intend to use it for embellishing some of my turnings if and when I figure out how to use it. There are some youtube videos with turners using small machines to make “signature disks” they let into the bottoms of their bowls or vessels. The machines cost about $90.00 and do a surprisingly good job. The down side is they will only do an area about 3” square and are limited in height. I thought if I ever
  12. After assembling the machine it's time to install the software. I have to say before I get into that, assembling the machine is well within the scope of most any wood workers ability. It's kind of like Lincoln logs. If a person takes it in small steps and doesn't look at the overall picture, it's not too daunting. Like my brother's wife always says, "it's hard by the yard, but it's a cinch by the inch" she is right. Now, what can I say about the software? A lot, and not much. It's important to keep in mind, for myself, as much as anyone. This is a bare bones, entry level, hobby mac

  17. That, and I haven't had a lot of time to play with this thing. Decided this morning to make time and turned an egg. The pattern is one that is included with the eggbot software. Took about five minutes to set up and probably about that long to draw the pattern. Steve
  18. The eggbot arrives as a box of parts, a lot of parts. I didn't take any pictures or videos before assembly but it's a little daunting to look at all of them. Fortunately, there is an excellent set of instructions in pdf form available. The instructions were well illustrated and very thoroughly written. Assembly basically went without a hitch. The toughest part was wiring but that had more to do 66 year old eyes and nerves than anything else. Plugged everything in and it worked as it should right away. Now, the learning begins and the easy part is over. I had some sphere
