  1. We are about half way through the Patriot Raffle period but we are only about 64% of our site goal 😥. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, Please head over to this post and take a chance on one of the wonderful prizes- Major thunderstorm passed thru and another on its' heels. Home the UPS holds up! Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan posted a free wood score he made! Looks like it could be cherry or maybe even walnut. What do you think?? Dan has also been busy in the shop turning pens- He creates these beauties out of inexpensive, bought pens. @Gerald posted his gorgeous hollow form turned from Live Oak. Gerald discusses his turning and it color in his post Gerald also posted a bowl he made using the ringmaster system- See what our turners had to say about this gorgeous piece- Our own @Steve Krumanaker received a well deserved honor recently. His maple "Rock" bowl was given the "Judges Award" at a show presented by a local art council. We all know Steve has awesome talent and now his community does, too. More images in Steve's post- What’s Coming Up- I had the very pleasurable experience of demonstrating Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) to the Lancaster Woodturners. They are participating in the Mid Atlantic Woodturning Symposium, September 28-30, in Lancaster PA. More information is available at their site- http://www.mawts.com/ . From The Internet- Rick Turns has the July list of YouTube turning videos ready- Mike Peace added another sanding video. He describes additional techniques non-spindle pieces Along those lines, last week I mentioned using Abranet sanding screen. I found a website that has a similar product and not as expensive. These folks carry a wide variety of turning accessories- https://woodturnerswonders.com/ Everything Else- Several weeks ago we featured a project finish called "water droplets". The latest issue of American Woodturner magazine (August 2018) has a How-To for doing that finish. As it is a copyrighted article, I won't put it here but you may be able to get a copy of the magazine to see additional information about this technique. I finally finished up the little mixed media turning. It didn't come out like the picture I had in my head- but then my turnings rarely do! The base is a piece of walnut. Overall height is about 5" and the "glass" is about 1.25" in diameter at the top. Finished with wipe on poly. I call it "Half Full"- Safe turning

    First for me

    Needed a hollow form to display flowers in new booth . Had a piece of spaulted magnolia so started on it . The first for me is to turn a hollow form from beginning to parting off on one day....actually 2.5 hours.

    Natural edge (side)

    Started roughing a Beads of Courage Bowl and noticed that this blank may allow for a natural edge or bark on side , just an area about 2 inch wide by 3 to 4 long. Question is has anyone had good luck doing a bark side on a hollow form?

    Walnut vase

    Just pulled this off the lathe. Walnut is just the most amazing wood to me, the grain in walnut is always different and always spectacular IMO. Tried a new finishing technique(to me) on this piece. Left it spinning on the lathe and applied tung oil with a foam brush. That allows a wet heavy coat with no drips or sags. It's a technique I'll be using again I'm sure. This piece is 13" tall and about 7" major diameter. It's a pretty consistent 1/4" thick. Steve Just realized i didn't take a picture of the top, it's hollowed through 1-3/4" hole if I remember correctly.

    The stuck drill bit hollow form

    Some may remember I posted pictures of a hollow form I was drilling and the forstner bit got stuck deep inside. Happily, I eventually got the bit unstuck and was able to continue. Even more happily, the vessel was dry enough to finish this week. Here it is, third coat of oil just applied. It will probably get two or three more coats before I'm done. Keep in mind, the oil is freshly applied so it will lose a little shine. It's about 14" tall and 12" major diameter. I have to tell you I was nervous, nervous while turning off the bottom. Afraid I was going to through. Walnut, what can you say? Steve

    The walnut hollow form.

    Finally got the walnut hollow form off the lathe, actually, it's been "off" the lathe several times over the past couple of weeks. Gerald had mentioned in another thread I might have problems with my laser and he was right, it was too heavy and wanted to move all over the place. Had to address that. Had some other issues and some other projects got in the way. This is my second attempt at hollowing something deep and it was probably a little too ambitious for me. Have to keep telling myself, this is a learning process and that was the main purpose for this piece. Next one will probably be smaller. Anyway, here's a pic, it's about 16" tall and about 14" major diameter. It will go in a sack to dry and then get remounted for turning off the tenon and sanding. Close to 1/4" through out, a little thicker here, a little thinner there. Still learning you see. Steve

    Another, I hate it when this happens.

    I've got a beautiful piece of walnut on the lathe, trying to do a hollow form about 14" deep and about the same major diameter. Drilling to start hollowing this morning and when I backed out to clear chips this is what I saw. No drill bit, this is a bad thing. At this point I'm over 10" deep with this bit. Fortunately I was drilling in steps and had made a good portion of the hole larger already. What now? Couldn't reach it with anything and there are chips packed tight around it. My first thought was, no way to save this. Still, I started picking at the shavings and blowing them out until they were pretty well clear, that took about an hour. After several failed attempts with rare earth magnets, screw drivers, etc. etc. I got the idea to make a loop in a piece of tie wire and slip it over the shaft. Held the wire with a pair of vice grips and ran the lathe slow. With a little help, the wire wound tight enough I could wiggle the drill bit a little using the wire and a screw driver. After about two hours I was able to get a purchase on the bit with a pair of deep reach needle nose and worked it the rest of way out. Next time, I'll be sure to clear chips more often and make doubly sure the set screws in my extension are tight. I think it will be faster that way. Steve

    Magnolia box

    From the album: Hollow Forms

    Box is a spare fragment of magnolia I had to do something with and is only 4 inches tall. The top is yellow-hart with a finial of Brazilian ebony. That piece of ebony I think was the hardest I have ever turned.

  16. Finally got to try a deep hollow form, not real deep, about 13". First time I've tried something like this and there is lots to learn. The laser diode I was using wasn't the best choice and it wouldn't stay in one spot. Because of that and my own inexperience this piece is just too thin in a couple areas. It won't get much sanding because there is a very real possibility of sanding through. Still, for a first effort, I've got to be happy with the results. I also know there is a lot of room for improvement, especially in the form and getting a consistent thickness. Anyway, here is my first effort and a short video of the hollowing process. The base could be a little smaller and the funnel could also be smaller I think. I was surprised how difficult the big cove was to do and I can see there is room for improvement there as well. Wife says she loves it and I have to finish it but you know how they are. Thanks for looking Steve

    Dyed bowl

    Have had this piece on my bench for a while. It is spaulted Chinese tallow . I just got another air brush from HF with finer control. It was perfect for this. Used Chestnut Stains in red, royal blue and yellow. In this pic finish is nog quite done.

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
