  1. Quite a wide variety of things this week. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier posted a question concerning his lathe's faceplate. He was having difficulty removing the faceplate after use. Our turners offered several suggestions and modifications. Head on over to Ron's post and see if you can add anything to what was discussed. @Gerald added a really great tip to the Woodturner's Forum tip section. He gave us a link to an article using the bandsaw for cutting bowl bland. Lots of good information- @John Morris Asked for information on the "Ring Master" tool for making bowls. Several of our members gave him their opinions. Please check in on this post and help John out with his inquiry- You know, our turners are the absolute best bunch of folks! @HandyDan posted his thanks to @John Morris for gifting him a buffing system. Dan is our pen making expert and this system really helped him improve the finish of his bullet pens. What’s Coming Up- More information and registration for this September event can be obtained at- https://gawoodturner.org/symposium/ For The Newbies- We want to thank @Gene Howe for passing along this reminder. Safety is really important, not just for beginners, either. Expand Your Horizons- I run hot and cold on what type of finish to put on a turning. Sometimes the function of the turning dictates the type of finish. Other times it is up to individual tastes. I really like the "feel" of the wood when you touch the turning while others prefer a more "finished" feel. If you like the high gloss finish, here's a video from M. Saban-Smith on the steps he uses to get a glass-like finish- New Turning Items- We found a couple of new items. From Woodturners Wonders, a small bit holder for use when sharpening. More on this holder is at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/unique-tools/products/small-tool-bit-holder Second, it a new item from Ruth Niles. Ruth calls this one a "Tab Popper". This should be a hit with the ladies to protect their nails. Ruth has more information and images on her site- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/niles-tab-popper/ Everything Else- The latest edition of Woodturning OnLine is available at- https://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php?edition=062019 . I know many of you do club demonstrations. There is a nice article about remote demonstrations in this issue. You can check it out at- https://www.morewoodturningmagazine.com/articles.php?articlesid=127&access=bb51e4e9a315 Rick Turns has the May edition of the YouTube woodturning videos. Please add a comment to Rick's posting. A lot of work goes into cataloging this data- I made a trip up to the Woodcraft store and now have been playing with my new Easy Wood Tools mini hollowing set ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ). I had a really dry, hard chunk of cherry. Used the straight hollower to make a bracelet. Shavings came off like it was green wood! Finished with mineral oil and beeswax. I had some maple, from a tree we had removed, setting behind the garden shed. When I cut into it, I discovered it had spalted. Couldn't let that go to waste although it is quite punky in places. Mounted a small chunk and went to work. I drilled a 1/2" hole down thru the center and then shaped the outside. I flooded the surface with CA to help stabilize the punky wood. Using the 0°, 45° and 90° tools to hollow out the center I made a wall thickness tool from an idea I stole from a Mike Peace video. He recommended spring steel wire but all I had was coat hanger wire. As you can see, I need more practice and a better thickness gauge. The bright light near the top is where I sanded thru the surface of the turning. It was extremely soft there. The lights near the bottom show thru REALLY thin walls! Side view from one angle, looks pretty symmetrical. Looking closely, you can see where I sanded thru at the neck. Turned 90° and now the asymmetrical neck can be seen on the right. The soft part sanded down quicker than the harder grain next to it. I just couldn't bring myself to pitching it. Made a jam chuck to finish the bottom- As fragile as the piece was, I needed to get it out of the chuck without banging on the sides. Air pressure to the rescue! When I make a wooden chuck (or glue block), I drill a small centering hole completely thru the wood. Turned out to be a good habit. And there you have it. Gonna play around, using the mini hollowing tools to create a small finial. Not sure about the finish, yet. Safe turning
  2. Another summer just about in the books. School starts tomorrow and I already have a sub day scheduled. Please don't forget the deadline for The Patriot Woodworker raffle is coming up. Don't get left out!! Our Patriot Turners- The Patriot turners have been really busy in their shops this past week. Lots of great ideas and projects. @Gerald added a great tip to the Woodturners Forum. His idea for making/reusing material for faceplates is really cool! Gerald also showed us how he embellished the bottom of his ringmaster bowl. @Ron Altier started a discussion about "Turners Tape". He received lots of responses and additional ideas for attaching a turning. Ron also posted an image of another Sea Urchin ornament. Mother nature surely creates some beautiful designs Ron 's post is here- @HandyDan created a handle for a little hammer he picked up at a sale- Dan posted a really nice series of the steps he took to do this- Our Australian member @JariKilpi added images of a beautiful Camphor Laurel bowl he recently turned. Check out his album- From The Internet- Continuing with the last couple of weeks topics on sanding, Mike Peace has added another video on bowl sanding Sanding is made easier with a nice new dedicated tool. I received this in an email from Woodturners Wonders. All metal gears, variable speed, $60. https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/sanding-items/products/angle-drill Ok, let's make bowls the topic for the week. Rick Turns shows us another way to personalize a turned bowl. "Leafing" adds an interesting look to a turning and it's not difficult to do. Looking for a cool turning project? Tim Yoder has a 2 part video on a project that would make a nice present for the cook's kitchen. The second part is linked from Tim's YouTube page. Everything Else- Mr. David Reed Smith published a tutorial for making a STO Gauge. I have to admit I didn't know what this was or that it even existed. Mr. Smith's tutorials are always interesting, easy to follow and very detailed. The tutorial is available also as a .pdf download. http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/STO-Gauge/STO-Gauge.html I did manage to get a little turning time in this week between computer repairs, mower repairs, school meetings and construction requests. Another Manzanita root- To utilize the most material, the piece is mounted off center. The bolts create a counter balance to reduce vibration. Mounted with a paper joint to facilitate removal of the piece Easy Wood Tools #1 Hollower ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ). Easy Wood Tools now has available negative rak cutters for many of their tools. The cutters were designed for use with acrylic turnings but work equally as well on harder wood. Clean cuts and no catches. Same low price! The small ridge will be the seat for a lid. Sanding will be tricky. Safe turning
