  1. We are still about $400 short of our fundraising goal for this year- only 30 days left! Some great prizes available. Don't miss your chance to score big and be part of making Veteran's lives a little better. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier is our resident ornament designer. Ron experiments with a wide range of finishes. His current favorite is a U/V finish. Ron shows us just how versatile this finish can be- See this post for Ron's explanation- Ron goes on to show us some of the unique effects this finnish can produce- Here's his post and his comments- @Gerald finally obtained a special turning blank he had been looking for. He is creating a large platter from this beautiful wood- In his post, Gerald explains his technique for turning and drying his project- @AndrewB told us he is going to purchase a bowl blank from Rockler. For his current situation, it is easier for him than trying to locate FOG wood. We had quite a discussion about blanks and finishes. @Ron Altier jumped in with some comments about how the blanks are sealed and how we should prepare the blanks for turning. Andrew also gave us a quick view of a new hollowing tool he received. Here's his first reactions- What’s Coming Up- Last week we mentioned that Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools) and Carl Jacobson were teaming up to present a virtual Makers Fair. I had the chance to see most of the presentations and they were quite enjoyable and informative. These presentations were via YouTube. I can't find the entire presentation in one location but here are the links to the individual presentations- https://youtu.be/Gh6dZTt1mFI Carl Jacobson https://youtu.be/E0uF38pr8cI Jim Overton https://youtu.be/W1N4BbieIbY Jamie Page https://youtu.be/1uj4AX_jXw4 Annie Briggs https://youtu.be/hxnqHYD3_aU Zac Higgins https://youtu.be/h-KwHBcm_2s Darryl Jones https://youtu.be/f3oIhdzHwFM Scott Grove https://youtu.be/31iUD-0zOow Carl Jacobson Most were approximately 1 hour long and viewers could submit questions and comments. It seemed like the overall event was well received and if another one is planned, I know I'll be watching. For The Newbies- Mike Peace posted a new video to help new lathe owners pick out a chuck that will work for them- Expand Your Horizons- We have the lathe and we have the wood, so why buy something we can make- http:// https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/discover/woodworking/2020/june/turning-new-handles-for-old-tools?utm_source=Newsletter---Woodworking&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=200629-Wood-How-to-Turn-New-Handles-for-Old-Tools New Turning Items- Everyone needs at least one new woodturning shirt! Ruth Niles is having a sale on all her instock shirts- T's and denims https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product-category/shirts/?v=7516fd43adaa Everything Else- Rick Turns' list of videos from last week- As for me, I finally put the finish on the little bowl I was making. Watco Danish Oil- The bowl was made from black locust and was about 7" x 2" The leftover chunk of locust was too big to throw out, so, it became a platter- Finished with the same Watco oil. About 7" x a little over 1" Safe turning and stay well
  2. Made this couple years ago and have used when needing to stamp some metal with numbers or letters. Buddy of mine borrowed it and brought it back with this request, "I want one." Yeah like I remember how I pulled this miracle off!!! The handle was assembled in square form, two magnets on each side at the bulge. These are string enough to hold the die in place and not let it fall out when being used. I used a carriage bolt to provide a straight path to the stamp die. Once the dry fit was good I turned the handle. Works well.
  3. I used to be a foreign car mechanic, so I have a wide variety of tools. However. I have found that using one of my three my drill presses to feed a thread tap assures me of it being straight. Probably not news to anyone, but thought I would offer it anyway! By the way, I have four cabinet saws, eight routers, four bandsaws, two wood lathes, and I usually keep them set up for different operations. Just bragging, I guess!

  6. I was faced with cutting hand-holds in a number of boxes. While the typical approach is to drill two holes and connect them with a jig saw, I never had much luck with that and dreaded the task of drilling, sawing, sanding and routing 72 holes. I used a jig similar to ones I've used before. I simply cut a strip out of a piece of 1/2"plywood that determined the height of the hand-hold. Then I glued the plywood back together to create the width I wanted. I added a stop to set the distance between the top of the box and the top of the hand-hold. Since the boxes were of a couple of different widths and I must use it again in the future, I did not put a stop on the other side, but simply marked the center line of the box and lined it up with the center line of the jig and clamped in place. Then using a plunge router with a bushing and mortising bit routed out what amounts to a large through mortise. Use a roundover bit on inside and outside of hand-hold You could also use a top-piloted bearing bit if you wish. I don't mind the square-ish ends, but if you prefer the more traditional rounded ends, just round over the inserts before you glue them back up.
  7. This was new to me. Worth a try.
  8. First off, I have two "orphans" to figure out what to do with Don't have any saw plates that match, the holes patterns are different than the plates I still have... Warranted Superior Medallions. Not sure what to do with these.... However, I did find one match for another handle.. As I have an Atkins handle.. Holes match! Need to clean the rusty plate and see IF there is an etch.....and see IF I can find out what model this was. Might have a bit of time this week?
  9. present for my BIL's birthday next month. mahogany handles, about 6-1/2" long.
  10. A couple of years ago, I made my wife a set of 12 ergonomically designed crochet hooks. Then I made a rack for them. She will never use them all but she wanted all of them. Long story short, she misplaced 2 of her favorites. That is where she says "Can you make me two more?" As luck would have it, I had two spare ( less than perfect) handles. I was able to salvage one today, will try the other tomorrow. They were all made of exotic wood scraps.
  11. A friend had several trees taken down recently and set me up with a few chunks of hickory firewood. So today I pulled out the mallet and splitting wedges and the big bandsaw and cut them into 2 1/2 and 3 inch slabs. All the ends got sealed with my potpourri crock pot candle wax. The shop smelled good all day too! They are stacked. Now the wait is on for drying. Not quite an entire hand tool post so forgive me for that. Just raw material manufacture for future chisel repairs etc. Inagural run for the big bandsaw too! I think it and I are going to be friends!
  12. Well, the Stanley No.888 wannabe is getting a bit heavy, hurts the hand that carries it. Picked a pair of handles up, and something to hang a few tools up. First, the handles.. Brass plated thingys. I used that Vix bit to drill a few pilot holes for the screws. Each end got one handle....I tried to straddle the cracks, and avoided putting a screw into one...barely. yep, this is the end that cracked when I glued the case up. handles just have that plate, and a bent wire, but it makes things easier to carry around. Now, about some tool hangers....picked up a package of "cup hooks". Figured I could attach a hook, bend it a bit, and hang a few tools up on the inside Two screwdrivers. The top one "locks" the bottom one in place. Bottom of the box is getting a tad full. Handle for the saw is sticking up, Chisel handle, a square, gear from a eggbeater drill, a couple auger bits. There is a 16 oz hammer under that stuff, and a 10" Cresent wrench. Couple other chisels, and a nail set . That blue handle? I also tried to hang a couple more toys...er...TOOLS Mini-wrecking bar, and a pair of pliers. Yes, those are planes back there. Somewhere, there is also a 6' zigzag ruler, a 3/8" cold chisel, and a 3/8" gimlet bit. other side of this box.. Planes are a #220 block plane, and a #3 York pitch bench plane. Rest of the stuff in here.. A Push drill, a couple of the auger bit, another view of the #1220 Eggbeater drill. Yes that is a pipe wrench ( as listed in Stanley's ad) and the oil stone. have since added a stanley 645 brace, as the eggbeater doesn't handle the auger bits too well. And, yes, the lids still are able to close and latch.... Despite the fact this thing is over 50 pounds in weight! needed a spot to sit this thing at.....happen to have just the thing.. A pine table I built from resawn 4x4s. Even the finishes match. Table seem to be holding up fairly well. I didn't have the 18" Stanley level for this box. I can't imagine carrying this box from jobsite to jobsite...be too tired to work when i got there. IF anyone wants, I could post an "inventory" of what is all in the little box...

    The completed fire starter. I think the grain on this piece is really cool with all the worm trails
  14. From the album: Handles

    The butt end of the fire starter, complete with compass. If you look close, you can see the dots in the wood where worms traveled through it, leaving dots of decayed crumbled sawdust.
