  1. We went to the Springfield OH "extravaganza" this weekend. If you've never heard of it, it's one of the biggest antique, flea markets in the country. It happens twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. I believe there were over 1500 vendors this weekend. We drove about 300 mile round trip to attend, walked and walked for hours and I spent five bucks. I bought a tiny calipers. I told myself it will be great for when I turn finials but really I just thought it was cute. Nickel is for scale.
  2. Have had these hollowed all summer and after I finished all the other gifts last week got these out to sand and finish. They are sweet gum and the sanding went rather rapidly. The dye is applied by wiping from center to edge and since there will be no crisp edge it can run over but you do want to leave a jagged edge and not try to make it even. Then repeat from the bottom. The collar is brown ebony and the finial Gabon ebony. Smaller one is about 8.5 in diameter and the larger right at 11.

  5. What would be the best way to reproduce this finial on a building in Williamsburg, VA? I had someone ask me to replicate it, for their garden shed, but they backed out at the last minute. I've got my idea about it but am curious about other's ideas of replication.
  6. Looks like I haven't been the most on-the-ball forum host for the last several weeks. I've missed several posts by our turners and for that I apologize. Our Patriot Turners- @Pauley asked our opinions on the Laguna 1216 midi lathe- Check out his post and see if you can offer any help. @Kevin Beitz showed us a beautiful pedestal fruit bowl that incorporated an inside-out turning.

This video goes into more detail. Expand Your Horizons- Acrylic turnings seem to be all the rage right now. Carl Jacobson turns an acrylic sphere, in this video.

New Turning Items- Some of these aren't "new" but the prices are pretty good- Click on the above image for the link to WoodTurners Wonders. Everything Else- I am currently "lathe-less". Sold my old Delta in less than 24 hours. Thanks Craig's List! I'm going to order the Jet 1640 EVS. The local dealer is offering a 15% discount thru October. Some of my jigs will have to be reworked and I'll need a spindle adapter to match up my chuck and shop made items to the new size. The most work will come in the shop rearrangement. I had the Delta bench mounted and the new Jet will have its' own stand. And, of course, I'm gonna have to call in some favors to get it to the basement!!! Before the lathe left, I managed to complete the locust bowl. Because of the shape, I took extra precautions when finishing off the bottom. Strapping tape made sure the thing stayed in place. I used some more of that black CA from StarBond to fill in a void where some of the bark was not quite complete. The finish is mineral oil and then some mineral oil/beeswax paste. Mimi has already decide who will receive it. Safe turning
  7. Decided to make a few finials using Cindy Drozda's spread sheet. Lew posted it in the July 24 Wednesday post. I like those dimensions. Made for a good looking finial. I did a 3" and a 4" to see how the would turn out.
  8. What an amazing day! Cindy Drozda's full day demo was today. This lady is determined and committed to giving her audience their the best experience possible. Her attention to detail is ridiculous and her preparation is meticulous. She turned an elegant little finial box which she later presented to the club. She didn't make a cut without explaining what she was doing, why she was doing it, and how she was doing it. I highly recommend hosting her if you belong to a club. You won't be disappointed. Incidentally, the little inset in the underside of the lid is a diamond stud earring. She believes when someone picks up the lid they should have a nice surprise. She was also kind enough to offer her thoughts and suggestions on several members pieces. It really was a great day and I learned a lot. Tomorrow will be better as I and eight other members are doing a hands on day with her. Steve
