  1. Not being able to work I spent the day watching YouTube and this popped up.
  2. Had a piece of Red oak screwed to a small face plate for another use and decided to make it into something so turned it end grain. Still working with beeswax as a finish. You can't see it but I spilled some coffee on it coming up the steps with it after the pictures. The moisture depleted it immediately so not very durable. Have to redo the finish, feels like it needs a lid too.
  3. I don't know if it's specifically used for end grain, but he's using it, I have my own preferences in my own collection, but I am curious about this specialty plane. Can anyone identify this hand plane for me? I started the video at the point where Doucette is using it, I looked on Lie Nielsen's website as Doucette uses mainly LN tools, but I could not find it. Thanks for any help and another view here:
  4. Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving. For Pennsylvania hunters, good luck on Monday- the first day of white tail buck season! Our Ward 57 Christmas project is underway. We are about 1/3 of the way to our goal. Please check out this and donate to get your raffle tickets for some awesome prizes! Our Patriot Turners- @Headhunter posted these fantastic bowls after we put up last "Wednesday's..." chapter. Tony creates his bowls using the Ring Master. See his post for more details on the species and more images of his bowls! Last week @Steve Krumanaker showed us the walking sticks he was creating.

Paul always fins the most interesting wood combinations to make each piece unique! The hardware for his turnings comes from Niles Bottle Stoppers. Head over to his post and see more of the turnings and what they are to become. What’s Coming Up- From the AAW. Click on the image for more information. For The Newbies- Expand Your Horizons- New Turning Items- Didn't find anything new and exciting. Hoping Santa will come up with some new stuff! Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- This has nothing to do with turning but there is an interesting history lesson here. I was coerced into going with Mimi to Thanksgiving Eve church service. Fortunately lightening didn't strike the church or any of the attendees. Mimi's family have been long time members of the local Zion Reformed Church in Chambersburg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zion_Reformed_Church_(Chambersburg,_Pennsylvania) On Thanksgiving eve and Christmas eve they light the original chandelier for the service. Real candles, this chandelier is not electrified. Keep in mind the church was originally built in 1811 to 1813. It was one of the few structures that wasn't destroyed during the Civil War when the Confederate Army burned the town. Pretty amazing. Safe turning
  5. Ok I gave the search function a shot & got nothing. If the answer to my question is in there can someone point me to it please. I'm turning and finishing some bowls. Sanded them up to 3000 grit (silicon carbide)----because she said so.! No stain, just Helmsman varnish. Anyway, I can't get the opposing areas of end grain to sand smooth (inside or out). I'm still experiencing what I consider tear out. Any suggestions to alleviate this? Is it a function of inexperience, or technique? I'm using Easywood carbide tools if it matters. And -no- I haven't mastered a skew chisel yet. Lathe does not have reverse. All thoughts welcome.
  6. My apologies to @Smallpatch for giving credit to another member on making the chess piece. I have totally lost my mind. Finally got that computer change-over done (I think), we'll see whether the phone rings tonight. Note to self: clean out your own contact's list. No one need 2894 contacts to try to inform of a new email address. Our Patriot Turners- @Smallpatch was asked to recreate a chess piece. Can’t wait to see the results! Jess has a funny story to go along with the request. Be sure to check out his post- @HandyDanTurned a set of incredible earrings.

But I've seen some awesome patterns created by turners like Darryl Jones- https://www.instagram.com/dreadknotwoodshop/?hl=en This is one of his pieces from his Etsy shop It amazes me what he, and others, can do. Anyway I've been practicing and recording results so I can reproduce the embellishments on other pieces. I probably should have picked a softer wood than white oak. Sometime back I made a tool described by Mike Peace for small pieces (the one with the brass shank). I use it on bowl bottoms for a spiral pattern. Safe turning and stay well
  7. Don't forget, Valentine's Day is on the horizon. Time to start dropping hints for that woodturning item you have been eyeing!

Everyone does bowls, then hollowing, then acrylics. Lately I noticed a lot of surface colors. I have to say, although they are amazing, I still prefer to see the natural color of the species. I found a couple of pieces of white oak left over from a gun rack I made for a friend. The pieces were cutoffs and about 12" wide and 1"+ thick. Thinking about making something- maybe a platter. Turning the years of storage dirt away, the wood was true to its name- white. The grain was nondescript. Played around a little with some coloring ideas. I thought maybe black toner cartridge dust might fill the pores- not so much- but it did make an almighty mess on the lathe. Then tried brown paste shoe polish- not bad. Then black opaque resin dye- about the same. Last was amber transparent resin dye- better. Keep in mind I was only trying to accentuate the grain pattern- not color the entire surface. Applied the color and then skimmed the surface. Brown shoe polish- Black opaque resin dye- Amber transparent resin dye- I might just use oil based poly to give the piece a nice mellow glow. Who says you can't get curlies from carbide cutters- Safe turning and stay well
  8. began squaring and gluing last year's accumulation of off-cuts, trimmings, and scraps. it's a slow and tedious process but results in some beautiful end grain cutting boards. the tote and cans are all pieces cut to length and in-process of prepping the edges for gluing. on the sander are pieces in the various stages of gluing, squaring, and final glue-up ready for flattening. Also got the new electric panel powered up and meter installed today. yippee now I can run more than one tool at a time.
  9. This Blew me away Would you believe that, while end grain to end grain joints fail along the glue joint when they fail, they actually are stronger than long grain to long grain or end grain to long grain joints? .

  11. Tried something new today; end grain thin bowl. Used live oak and turned to just over 1/8 inch live edge. Easy turn bud did start to crack in center when sanded. Fixed that with CA. Put in a bag to slow drying and hope for the best.
  12. I took a class at my Woodcraft store last week for making end grain cutting boards. It turned out I was the only one that signed up for the class so I got the instructor's full attention. Another plus was that since I was the only one there we had lots of time so I ended up with two boards. I'd seen her boards at a craft show before and thought that the way the patterns ran was pretty interesting and wanted to see how she did it. Really it was pretty simple, I should have seen it myself. We had a good time anyway for three nights. I'm wanting to make some more. I think I want to find some hickory, I think that could make some interesting end grain patterns. The biggest problem I see with these boards is that they look too nice to use. She had me sanding them down to 600 grit and they are like glass.
