  1. Beautiful spring day here in south central PA. Dogwood trees in full bloom. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier posted some images of his Christmas ornaments. One of his pieces was finished with his experiment using epoxy. Ron asked us what we thought about the finish. Please hop on over to his post and let him know what you think- "What's On Your Lathe" continues to show our turner's work. This week, @forty_caliber was working on some bowls- You can catchup here- What’s Coming Up- Click on the image for the links. For The Newbies- Received this information in an email from Kent Weakley- 49-Must-Know-Wood-Bowl-Turning-Terms.pdf Kent is a bowl turner and this video demonstrates making a natural edge bowl- starting with a log through to the finished piece. Mr. Weakley uses traditional turning tools. This video, from Craft Supplies USA, demonstrates turning a bowl using Easy Wood Tools carbide cutters. Lots of great tips for getting the best finish. Expand Your Horizons- Some random ideas to spark your creativity Carl gets "artsy-fartsy" Add marbling effects to a turning- Several of our members do four sided "inside-out" turnings. Alan Stratton made some with three sides- New Turning Items- Ron Brown has a new version of his chatter tool available- https://www.longworthchuck.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=23&product_id=261 Everything Else- Took a couple of days but I finally got this little elm bowl finished. Use the Easy Wood Tools beading cutters (1/4" & 3/16") @Jordan Martindale. Out of the drying box- Finished with Yorkshire Grit And from Ron Brown's newsletter- A journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step. Excellence takes time, patience, and practice. Becoming an excellent craftsman or craftswoman is possible for all of us, but we must remember that improvement comes in small bites. Every time I walk away from the shop, I ask myself what I learned from this session. And there is always something new. It might be small, but it represents one more step in my journey to excellence. “The Expert In Anything Was Once A Beginner” Helen Hayes There is joy, sometimes hidden, in every journey. It is up to you to see and understand it. In a world gone crazy, common sense is still the currency you can count on. Study, practice, and remember. Before you know it, you will have become someone’s expert just like the expert you so admired yesterday. Being in my seventh decade of glorious living, I’m often asked when I plan to retire. My answer is always the same, “This is me retired.” This is what I would be doing if I didn’t have to work at a job. Last week I read about an interview with two sisters, one 106 and the younger one 104 years old. Asked about their secrets for long life, they both agreed on a few things that keep them young; reading, staying active, meeting new people, and learning new things keeps their minds sharp and their attitudes positive. It makes each day worth getting up. You’ve all heard about the “Supply chain issue,” with Asia. We are affected by it along with everyone else. When I have issues importing a popular product, I often figure out how to make it myself right here in Georgia, USA. And while I’m at it, I look at how I can make it better. That is exactly how you got the Longworth Chuck Type 2 and, ultimately, the doughnut ring option. Each product involves new equipment, processes, and materials most of which I have not worked with before. Hence, the joy of the journey. This week, I’m introducing our Chatter Tool Version 2.0 as a replacement for an item I’ve sold many thousands of over the years. Why? Greedy foreign manufacturers forced me to figure out how to make it in my own facility in Georgia. This improved version features an ergonomic vibration-dampening soft grip handle designed to reduce fatigue, and it comes with three blades. As companies fade away and their products become impossible to find, put on your inventor’s hat and figure it out. I know you can do it with a little persistence. Remember that wherever you go, there you are. Safe turning
  2. My apologies to @Smallpatch for giving credit to another member on making the chess piece. I have totally lost my mind. Finally got that computer change-over done (I think), we'll see whether the phone rings tonight. Note to self: clean out your own contact's list. No one need 2894 contacts to try to inform of a new email address. Our Patriot Turners- @Smallpatch was asked to recreate a chess piece. Can’t wait to see the results! Jess has a funny story to go along with the request. Be sure to check out his post- @HandyDanTurned a set of incredible earrings. Dan is our resident "inside-out" turning expert and these beauties accent his talents! Dan received lots of comments and he also describes his process in this post- It is encouraging to see our turner's progress as they post their projects. Some of our member have years of experience while others are relative new to the discipline. @Bob Hodge tells us about how he is developing his creativity gene. I love the way he has chosen to display his turnings. So much better than setting on a shelf. Please check out his post with his feelings about turning Patriot member @BillyJack posted a question for our members about lathe tools. Maybe you can help him decide on what to get- We've had a couple of additional comments added to previous posts. @Bundoman Update his post about his winter projects and his daughter's new lathe- And going back into October on a post concerning end grain turning problems, @Bob Hodge added this information- What’s Coming Up- Pretty well caught up-to-date on what's happening in the near future. For The Newbies- A couple of videos from Mike Peace on drilling on the lathe- and- An older video but a nice useful beginner project from Robo Hippy The first installment on spoon turning from Neal Brand- Expand Your Horizons- Alan Stratton continues his demonstration of the eccentric chuck. Stay tuned to this channel as he \has pronised to show how to make the chuck- Richard Raffan turns square plates- not without a little problem- Cindy Drozda discusses turning tool handles. This was a live presentation and a little lengthy but has great information- New Turning Items- If you turn segments pieces, you are probably aware of the wedgie sleds for the table saw. This video shows a similar device for the bandsaw. Not exactly new, the Tormek wet grinder has been around for a long time. Here's Glenn Lucas demonstrating the turning sharpening jigs for woodturning tools- Craft Supplies USA has some new turning blanks available. These are Chroma-Ply blanks https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/t/29/Project-Blanks?b=chromaply&utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=chromaply&utm_campaign=22-02-blanks Woodturners Wonders has a Valentines sale.

I'm not very good with it. But I've seen some awesome patterns created by turners like Darryl Jones- https://www.instagram.com/dreadknotwoodshop/?hl=en This is one of his pieces from his Etsy shop It amazes me what he, and others, can do. Anyway I've been practicing and recording results so I can reproduce the embellishments on other pieces. I probably should have picked a softer wood than white oak. Sometime back I made a tool described by Mike Peace for small pieces (the one with the brass shank). I use it on bowl bottoms for a spiral pattern. Safe turning and stay well
  3. Please don't forget we are in the midst of our annual Operation Ward 57 charity drive to support our adopted family. We are less than halfway to our goal for making their Christmas one to remember. If you haven't donated, please consider helping give back to a wounded warrior. Our Patriot Turners- @forty_caliber posted some pictures of his latest rough turned pecan bowl He describes it in his post- @Ron Altiercreated some earrings for his daughter. Ron certainly is the master at combining colorful wood species for maximum beauty.

The first one is sort of a continuation of the previous pepper mill turning video from Mike Peace. This video show turning a "crush grind" mill from a kit. The second video is a great resource for learning to do inside-out turnings. @HandyDan and @FlGatorwood have shown us some of their fantastic pieces in the past. Expand Your Horizons- With ornament season in full swing, displaying these items doesn't necessarily need to be on the tree. Alan Stratton shows us how to make an ornament stand. I was particularly taken by his wire bending jig. In this video, from Turn A Wood Bowl, demonstrates adding a lid to the bowl being turned. The lid has an integral finial. New Turning Item- Over the weekend, I was lucky enough to have the time to enjoy the Vendor's Showcase zoom presentation. This was a 6 hour event, over 3 days, with demonstrations from Cinda Drozda, Lyle Jamieson, Steve Worcester, Todd Raines, Joe Fleming and John Jordan. Each presenter demonstrated their unique turning specialty along with some of the products they use. They took questions from the viewers and had discussions on techniques. One of the presenters, Lyle Jamieson, posted a video of his demonstration. Included was the use of his signature hollowing rig- On our woodworking forum, and this forum as well, dust collection is often discussed. We all know the importance of having a good setup for cleaning the air. I am not sure of this author's credentials for the topic but he makes some good points- Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I finished up and delivered some small walnut bowls for the bookkeeper at school. The walnut log came from her parents home. They had many memories of the tree and wanted some way to have the tree live on. These bowls are 5" to 7" in diameter and 2" to 3" deep. Turned with Easy Wood Tools and the rim treatment was done with a Sorby Spiraling tool. The round bowls were finished with mineral oil and beeswax. The natural edge with wipe on poly. Looks like I need to do a better job of dusting before taking the pictures. Safe turning and stay well
  4. Just realized that yesterday was 55 years ago that I was discharged from the Navy. Left Treasure Island and took a 3 day train ride across this beautiful country. That was the year of the airline strike and there were no commercial flights anywhere. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been busy casting and turning resin.

Carl Jacobson turns a beaded bowl using a beading tool- Expand Your Horizons- How do you finish your turnings? Do you like no gloss, some gloss or maximum gloss? For maximum gloss and wear, some turners prefer a CA glue finish. Here's a video from Darryl Jones showing how he uses CA and obtains some spectacular results. New Turning Items- Not so much new, but some sale prices from Woodturners Wonders in conjunction with S.W.A.T. Check their site for prices and more goodies- https://woodturnerswonders.com/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I mentioned that I had ordered some sanding/finishing products. They arrived yesterday and I had the opportunity to briefly try them. I need to do some experimenting with topcoats other than wax to see how they adhere. From what I've read, most any finish can be applied over the Yorkshire grit. That seems to fly in the face of convention as the sanding paste contains mineral oil and beeswax. I got a can of each Here is Mike Waldt's take on the product Safe turning and stay well
  5. Made some of these last year and had an order for two this year. Sold them for $25.00 each. The girl was buying one for her sister and niece and said they were the most beautiful ornaments she has seen. I thought she should have one so I gave her one as a gift. I made one and gave her that one and the two I had here for me. I just made these two to replace mine.
  6. This is my inside out turning. Surprise. It was turned on a Shopsmith. A man working on the house next door brought me an armload of mahogany. This wood is so sweet to turn-so smooth cutting. I gave this to his wife to finish to her taste. He was impressed. It sure was fun.
  7. Inside out turning starts with a glue up of four sticks cut perfectly square and glued together to make a square twice the size of the cut pieces. There are limits to how deep a cut can be made and not have the turning ruined because the cut was too deep. One inch square pieces will be glued up to create a two inch blank in this case. When the blank is mounted in the lathe the first order of business is to turn the area where the window is to appear to the max diameter which in this case is two inch diameter or a one inch radius as seen on the right. On the left is what it would look line if it was turned inside out now. The center diamond would be air space and the points of the diamond are where the windows will appear when more turning is done. This shows that a one inch deep cut measured from the corners would be too far. The maximum cut has to be at least one eighth inch short of one inch and that may be pushing it. So if two inch sticks are glued up to make a four inch square the cuts have to be less than two inches deep measured from the corner. Depth of cut mystery solved. Okay, time to get the table saw tuned up to cut perfect square and install a smooth cutting blade. Start by cutting four sticks the same length and perfect square. I used one inch square by six long pieces here. Decide the best looking orientation of the end grain and put a rubber band around them. Mark the four inside corners and number the pieces. Keeping the same orientation turn the inside corners to the outside and glue them together. A quarter inch line of glue on the ends is about all that is necessary as they will need to be split apart later. Let it dry and wrap the ends with tape. Heavy plastic tape can be as an added insurance that the blank will stay together. The tape is also a reminder to not turn that area away. It needs to remain for gluing later. Mount the blank in the lathe and turn it just round in the area the window is to appear. With it turned just round there will be no windows when turned back to finish as shown here. Anything turned away from here on will open the window. This was put back in the lathe and small grooves cut into it to show result. Notice how any cut made is automatically doubled. Next is how to make an ornament with a cross for the windows. Here is the blank mounted in the lathe. Here it is turned just round where the window will be and the cross upright length, one and a half inches, is marked out. Everything turned away now will open the window double the depth of cut. The upright of the cross is going to be a quarter inch wide so a groove one eighth deep needs to be cut the length of the upright. Each side of the horizontal part of the cross is to be a quarter inch long so a groove that deep a quarter inch wide needs to be cut next. To make it round seven sixteenths measured from the corner had to be removed plus two sixteenths for the upright and now four sixteenths for the horizontal arms comes to thirteen sixteenths leaving just three sixteenths of meat left to hold it together. Good to go. Here it is broken apart to check the window. Didn't care for the top and bottom of the upright so it was put back together and the sharp corners were blended in and the finish put on it. Be careful not to get finish on the glue surfaces. When the finish is dry it is time to knock it apart and turn the inside to the outside and glue it back together. Then mount it in the lathe for the finish turning. Turn the whole thing to just round again. If turned deeper where the window is the window will get steadily wider as wood is turned away. There is plenty of meet above and below the window to shape as desired. Just watch where the inside cavity top and bottom are so they are not cut into. Once it has the desired shape, part it off and put on the finish. Dan
  8. These were all done with one inch square six inch long configurations. Anything that fits through the window can be hung inside for added effect. Some beads are hung in this one. Two smaller ornaments made from one glue up.
  9. Decided to go ahead and make inside out ornaments for Christmas this year. Much more glue and clamp time than I envisioned not to mention running all the pieces through the saw to size them and make sure they are square. While running them through the saw I keep track of the grain match too. Turning them is the easy part and takes the least amount of time. I start out gluing two pairs together and when they are dry I glue the two halves together to get the square blank. Then they go on the lathe and turn the inside and put some shellac finish on with a rag while still on the lathe. Then I break them apart, turn them inside out and glue two pairs together and when they are dry glue the two halves together keeping track of the numbered pieces to keep the grain oriented. I glued 36 blanks up, here are some of them. I am now working at turning the final shape and will have to put the finish on once they are turned. Whew! I make 60 to give away each year so I still have another batch of 24 to do after these.
  10. Here is another inside out turned vase. I used some brass components found at the thrift store and polished on the lathe. It is about eight inches overall and the wood is Poplar. Used a different window design but think a wider window would show the brass insert better. I got a small photo booth in the tools I bought at auction but is was a bit too small for this vase. Took this picture with the set up I have had for a while.
