Hello Fellow Woodworkers, I have been tinkering in the woodworking world all my life (I’m 66 years old) but just starting get serious in the last five years. I’m members of two different woodturning clubs in SE Texas. I attended SWAT in Waco last August and bought a Ringmaster from Peter Merritt. I have got it set up and have turned about 6-8 bowls, but I need to have somebody teach me(hands on) the finer points of the Ringmaster. I will be willing to travel from Texas and pay someone for the class. Let me know your thoughts please. Marshall Perry
Handy Dan's Cross Christmas Ornament really got me.... so simple and so beautiful. So many of you inspire me to become a better turner. I really like to have instructions in my hand to follow along when making something with exacting instructions. So with Dan's permission I created a PDF sheet on how to turn this project. Now I'll have printed instructions with me when I attempt this one. No excuses now.... Thanks Handy Dan! I also posted this on the EWT FB Page (With @HandyDan's permission) Inside Out Cross Ornament.pdf
Bought some of these kits from a company named Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. They sat in a drawer for almost 15 years. When I pulled them out, I found that this company seems to be out of business. You suggested I call Berea Hardwood, and they did send some bushings and some Parker refills for the old kits. I have run into a problem: How do I install the refill? It doesn't seem to fit into the part I believe to be the correct one. I pulled another kit I have in stock, and the refill is the same as the one in the kit. It seems that it might have to be pressed into the pen part, but I am afraid that is going to ruin the point. Anybody turned one of these pens; if so, do you have any suggestions? Thanks!
Despite having a BIG crick in the neck ( must of slept wrong) decided to try again with these fancy dovetails.. Place is still an organized mess, but things are moving along. Fine tuning the first corner, and also laying out the cuts for corner "B". There IS a knife to mark the lines, sitting there. The sharpie is more for marking the mating corners, like "A-A" so I can keep things in order. Almost cut the wrong end, so the sharpie came out. The idea is to stand one part up onto the other, and then mark the lines with the knife. That saw there then cuts ( or tries) on the "waste" side of the lines. Then a bunch of chopping with the stable of chisels. There is an area on the sides of each joint that are just miter cuts. After chopping out the tails on this one, there miter cut is carried across the short rebate on the end. Takes a bit of cut, fit, cut, and try again. When it looks like I'm getting close. Clamping it up will close things up further, as there is a knife edge at the corner. At least it is still square Need to do the last side, both ends. Then cut a bottom piece to fit in those grooves. Then, maybe a walnut lid, of some sort? This would have been easier in Pine, but I didn't have enough pine scraps of the same size. Might work a little more tonight, after going over to the ER for this neck...
