  1. Last day of August! Where did the summer go?!?!? Our Patriot Turners- Our turners have been busy this week! @Gerald posted about a novel idea for embellishing a turning. He describes the materials he used and how he obtained the neat colorization in his post- @Gunny posted this in the "What's on tour weekend agenda"- Gunny has these down to an art! @forty_caliber finished up a bowl he started a while back. The grain and color in this one is incredible! He explains the name in his post- @RustyFN posted his beautiful Calabash bowl. He received lots of positive comments and @Gerald was kind enough to post a couple of his bowls for comparison. What’s Coming Up- Hold onto your hats- lots coming up in the near future! A bunch from the AAW. Click on the images for links and information. For The Newbies- Jim Rodgers continues his instruction on how/why catches happen. In this one, Jim discusses the scraper- Expand Your Horizons- Mike Waldt turns and embellishes an ash hollow form- ...and a Yew lidded box Seems we have been really concentrating on making scoops. Another idea but quite different than the previous designs- New Turning Items- SWAT was this past weekend. Cindy Drozda took the opportunity to video many of the vendors and their products. She was live on several occasions. She has posted some of the material on her YouTube Channel. The link to her channel- https://www.youtube.com/user/cindydrozda Craft Supplies USA is having a closeout on a bunch of their products. Some good prices! https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/Sales/20/Closeout?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=closeout&utm_campaign=22-08-closeout Woodturners Wonders Weekly sale: https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/weekly-sale A couple of weeks ago we mentioned the 3M Xtract sand paper. Taylor Toolworks is currently having a sale on the product- https://taytools.com/collections/3m-xtract?afmc=17p&utm_campaign=17p&utm_source=leaddyno&utm_medium=affiliate Everything Else- Rick Morris must be on vacation this week- He didn't post his usual list of turning videos. Tim Yoder is always a lot of fun to watch- I've been kicking this idea around for a while. Usually, when I make a lidded container, I will use contrasting species for the lid and body. Some things like pepper mills are made from a single piece of the same species. Cutting the blank in half and then creating a tenon can cause a noticeable grain mismatch where the cut/tenon is created. I was watching one of Cindy Drozda's live tool talks and she described a technique that minimizes the material loss and grain mismatch. After cutting the blank, it is glued back together with a sacrificial piece between the halves. This sacrificial piece becomes the tenon. My first attempt at this was a miserable failure. The cuts were not clean enough to create a good glue joint. I'm thinking I need a way to ensure the pieces will look seamless when mated together. My next try was a little better. The first thing was to create a sharp cut with no tear out. I forgot to take a picture in my haste but I used a skew chisel to start the separation cut. Then used my freshly sharpened, shop made, thin parting tool. Also cranked the lathe speed way up to part off the pieces- I did not create a tenon. Instead, I decided to turn tight fitting plug that would be used as the lid tenon. Mortice in one end- Fitting the plug Glue the plug into one of the mortices- the lid on this one. Trim the plug so the two halves fit together- Carefully hollow out the insides making certain not to touch the plug mating surfaces. I did not spend a lot of time sanding the inside. My main goal was to see if the plug idea would work. Some sanding on the outside and testing the grain match- Had to play a little to fancy up the very plain shape- I think this will have a much great effect when used on highly figured wood. This was from a very old piece of air dried walnut. Quite brittle. Safe turning
  2. Lovely spring day here in south central PA. My grandmother would have called this "the robin snow" Our Patriot Turners- Not too much happening from our turners this week. @Gerald did post about some of his sales on a different forum in answer to questions about craft shows- What’s Coming Up- From "Meet The Woodturner"- A two day event featuring quite a list of presenters and a wide variety of topics. Click on the above image for the link to the home page and associated information. From Ruth Niles- Click on the above image for the link to registration. For The Newbies- Turning can be like dancing- there are lots of subtle moves that makes it an enjoyable pastime. This video from Kent Weakley demonstrates body movements that can really improve your turning abilities. Cap'n Eddie has a nice little video with a shop tip on protecting your lathe ways. Simple device and easily made- Our shops are almost always in a state of flux. New equipment, saying goodbye to old stuff and changes in interest can all lead to rearrangements. Some of you may be lucky enough to have local friends to compare notes and idea. Others need to rly of folks like Mike Peace to help with ideas on shop reorganization. Expand Your Horizons- Lyle shows shaping and hollowing small objects with Hollowing System and laser measuring. Richard Raffan posted a couple of really nice turned box videos. Both are cross grained turnings. The second video shows making a suction fit lid. New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a new lamp available. Check it out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/nebula-led-lamp Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- You may remember from last week, I was trying to figure out what to do with that piece of Manzanita. Gerald suggested carving it instead of turning. I seriously considered that, however, that would have required the purchase of new realm of tools/equipment. As I have already spent my allowance on a new laser engraver, turning it seemed to be the least expensive option. The piece had 3 nubs on the most flat side (circled) which seemed to say "these will be my feet". That meant some sort of mounting had to be made, on this side, for chucking the piece. The stumper was that the opposite side was anything but flat! Using scraps under what would become the top, and hot melt glue, the piece was fastened to my very old shop made chuck; making sure the 3 nub feet were at a level plane. Various length posts added to hold the piece while spinning. And some additional safety taping. Turned a recess. I wanted to leave as much of the natural shape as possible. If I had cut a dovetail mortice for the main mounting, the chuck would not fit with all of the natural shapes. Made a glue block and a paper joint. Utter failure! Considered just a plain glue joint but recently saw a lot of information on hot glue for mounting. I'm Sold! That stuff really holds!! Re-chucked in the lathe. Fairly well balanced and had no trouble with vibration up to and above 1000 rpms. Ready for sanding on the front. First coat of wipe on gloss poly. After the second coat, I'll see what it looks like. Then remove the glue block, reverse chuck it and finish up the area where the glue block is located. Safe turning
  3. Nearing the middle of January already. Rumor has it there's a snow storm brewing for the north east late this weekend. Maybe I'll get to use the snow blower for the second time this "winter". Our Patriot Turners- Our turners have taken a vacation this week, but @Ron Altier's post about adding glitter to an ornament had lots of responses and advice. Read what was said and what Ron did, in this post What’s Coming Up- The Woodturners Worldwide Online Symposium is coming up on January 27 through January 30. https://www.woodturnersworldwide.com/ Click on the above image for the link to purchase tickets. Follow this link for a list of presenters- https://www.woodturnersworldwide.com/demonstrators If you have a social media presence, many of the presenters are offering a discount when registering. Check your favorite turner's accounts to see if they are participating. Lyle Jamieson is offering an IRD on preventing catches- Registration and more information is available at- https://lylejamieson.com/product/january-25-2022-700-to-930pm-eastern-time-tuesday-preventing-catches/ For The Newbies- An instructional video from Stuart Batty on grain orientation- Mike Peace posted a video on gluing tips he used during the creation of some of his turnings- Expand Your Horizons- Some years ago, I turned several "spiral candle holder" as gifts.

Everything Else- Frank Howarth takes turning design to a whole different level. His imagination (not to mention his shop) seems to be limitless! Rick Turns list of woodturning YouTube videos from last week- Safe turning and stay well
  4. Spoiler Alert!! Valentine's Day is Friday!!! Our Patriot Turners- Member @Masonsailor continues work on his Lazy Susan Tulips- He explains what hes has done in this post- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- Cindy Drozda recently posted two videos on negative rake scrapers. The first video discusses the various scraper shapes and their uses- The second video demonstrates sharpening techniques for these scrapers- Expand Your Horizons- We have been following Mike Peace's shop made texturing tool videos. In this one he demonstrates using the tool on both side and end grain projects- If you are getting bored turning between centers here's a video, produced by Nova Woodworking, showing the steps to turning a bowl New Turning Items- For me, sanding is one of least favorite things about a project. I have been purchasing sand paper from Woodturners Wonders and like their sanding screen products. They have a full line of sanding products. This video illustrates some of those products. Everything Else- I finally finished up the library project and had a chance to get back to turning. First thing was to put finish on the spalted maple bowl that has been my nemesis for the past several months as it mocked me everytime I walked by the lathe. I used mineral oil and beeswax. Mimi will use it as a "bread bowl" on her dining room table. The pictures were taken using my new "photo booth" fashioned after the one shown in a Mike Peace video. I'm pretty happy with the improvement in the pictures. My school is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year (my 49th year being associated with them). They are having a silent auction fundraiser to help with student scholarships. I made a few hickory rolling pins and will add a Celtic Knot rolling pin for donations. I had a couple of pieces of walnut log left from my Christmas bowl making project. I really wanted to get better at creating hollow vessels. Today I played a little. I'm beginning to think I have to stop watching 1950's science fiction movies. Every one of my attempts look more like flying saucers! The little laser device came in handy for judging the wall thicknesses Not too bad inside- I did discover that I may have to move the lathe a few inches farther from the wall. The ends of the handles of my hollowing tools were hitting the tool rack as I was making the final passes inside, under the lip. Safe turning
  5. Remember- Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald is trying out some new coloring techniques. His turning/coloring really creates some interesting designs in the wood! Please head on over to Geralds post and let him know how much you like this piece- Gerald also showed us a round hollow form that his coloring really made the grain of the wood stand out! Gerald explains what he did in his post @HandyDan gave us a really nice set of pictures on how he made his baby rattles- Check out his post to see what all went into making these beauties! @Gene Howe gave us a heads up on a video that should be mandatory viewing for every person who operates a lathe. Thanks Gene. What’s Coming Up- If you are near Provo, Utah, Craft Supplies USA is offering several turning workshops- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. Also- Again, clicking on the above image will connect you to more information and registration to this event. For The Newbies- When you start to turn bowls, you generally have two options for obtaining wood. Buy the mostly dried blank or find a freshly cut tree. In either case, unless you turn the bowl from start to finish in one sitting, drying the wood between turnings may be necessary. Rick Turns found a cool and inexpensive way to slow the drying process and reduce the chance of checking and cracking- Expand Your Horizons- Everyone knows I'm a "jig junky". Here's a video showing a shop made jig to use for turning Twisted Boxes. New Turning Items- Last week we displayed a basket weave illusion bowl from @Billy B. If you were interested in trying your hand at this awesome technique, Chef Ware Kits has what you need to get started- Find more on the lits and prices at- https://chefwarekits.com/Basket-Weave-Kits-c9880431 The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a new device to hold your dust collection hose. It is flexible and adjustable! Find out more about it at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/lathe-track/products/trac-vac-flexible-dust-collector Everything Else- Donations- I copied and pasted this from @John Morris. It would be great if each of us turners could help out! "We usually have a fundraiser raffle during the summer to help pay for our community, but my health took a dive this summer, and I never had the time nor the mind to organize our annual summer fundraiser, so we are falling short of our budgetary obligations. We will be very tight. If you are able to donate to our community, a dollar on up, it all helps." If you'd like to donate to our community, please see this page at https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/clients/donations/ I finally put the finish on the little walnut "spaceship"- Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools mini hollowers and their micro detailer ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) Safe turning
  6. Sitting here looking at the thermometer. Not too bad +6° F. Not sure what the wind chill is currently but the Dog and the Mrs. are curled up on the couch under a couple of blankets. The mail was stopped today and local schools are closed tomorrow. Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan made a really nice modification to his lathe. His idea was to modify the spindle stop to make it more accessible- Dan explains why and how he did this in his post- @Gerald is working on a pecan bowl. His post shows us how he is adding color to the wood- Gerald has more information about the colors he used and more pictures in his post- Gerald also mentioned that he had been to the Tennessee Association of Woodturners symposium. @Ron Altier showed us a new seam ripper he made for his wife- Ron describes what he did here- @IrishWoodCarver has turned a couple of beautiful segmented bowls. He tells us where he gets his bowl blanks in his post- @FlGatorwood gave us a heads up on a good price for SlimLine Pen kits from Rockler. Thanks for the information! Our own @Steve Krumanaker posted a 2 part video on YouTube showing us how he made the "Knitting Nancy" snowmen. Very interesting process! The link for part 2 can be found at Steve's YouTube channel- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC48jUuQ_rLe85ulKP8gCsmA What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- For the past couple of Wednesdays we have mentioned inertia sanders. Mike Peace recently reviewed one from Woodturners Wonders. Mike also continued his discussion on scroll chucks and the various jaws that are available- One other tidbit of information from Mike Peace. He has authored an article in the latest edition the the AAW magazine. His article is about wet sanding. It's a great primer for his YouTube videos on the subject. Expand Your Horizons- Not every turning has to have a high gloss, ultra sanded smooth as a baby's butt finish. Carl Jacobson shows us an example- New Turning Items- Although not a new product, faceplate rings, can be very useful for saving time in not having to remove your chuck, mount the faceplate and then reversing the process later. These might just be something to add to your turning arsenal. Everything Else- For your enjoyment, Tim Yoder turns a reed diffuser. Not only lovely but smells good too! I had a little time in at the lathe this week and finished up the hollow vessel I was turning. I really had to scratch my head to come up with a reverse chucking method to finish off the bottom. The diameter of the vessel was too small for any of my previously made jigs. I made some add on jaws for the Easy Chuck "Big Easy Jaws". In the process, I almost pulled a major dumba$$ blunder. I had the wooden pieces mounted on the jaws in preparation for scooping out the area that would clamp around the vessel. Just before I snapped the first on in place, I realized that I hadn't made an access hole to allow the EWT tool to release the the jaws. I could have just unscrewed all of the bolts but having the access hole is a lot easier. Tape to protect the finish. Tail stock to secure the piece. The finished piece. The finial is made from an old ebony piano key and an ebonized piece of maple. Wipe on poly finish on everything. Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) Safe turning
  7. THIS is why Dang, hate it when that happens. Have done a few successful forms the last couple of weeks and I guess I just got to aggressive on this one. Didn't have any idea I was in trouble until it separated. I was really pleased with the form on this one too. Oh well, it's how we learn!! Movin' on Steve
  8. 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
  9. I don't quite know what to call this. There is a recurve on the rim where the bowl turns in on itself and is hollowed inside. I'm working on a second one now from the other half of that log. This one has been put away to dry.
  10. I wondered what it would look like if I bored holes in a block of walnut, glued in Maple dowels and turned it into a vase. It came out nice and the dowels made a great design that was uniform in shape and highlights the vase. Deeper cuts will also change the shape. I have plans to use other woods, but it will have to be a round toit.
