    Lathe Switch Failure

    I am in the middle of another experiment on the lathe (Jet mini) and the power switch failed. Failed in the ON position. It is nothing more than a toggle switch, but is a pain to deal with. Mainly because of my ability to drop things that fall in never, never land. I unplugged and got a new one at HD. Not a direct match (never is) So I had to improvise. I made it work after fumbling and dropping things. It missed fitting in the old switch mounting by one eighth inch, after I had it all together and tried to mount it. I am frustrated and dropped some screws. Many years ago as an instrument tech, I could work for hours on the same mechanical instrument. I am not as patient now and much clumsier. So I got me a glass of iced water and got on this forum. After about 15 minutes I returned to the lathe, got a flash light and looked for dropped parts. WOW, I found the screws and pieces quickly. Sometimes you just have to chill out.

    Display for the 'Maple Rocks' Bowl

    Hope I'm not wearing this out. Couldn't find an off the shelf stand to display the maple rocks bowl. They were either too light weight or hid too much of the bottom. I had an idea in mind but just wasn't happy with what I was doing. Spied a piece of gnarly cherry in my wood pile and started grinding on it. Here is the result. This is the piece of cherry, it's hard to tell from the picture but the bowl will sit in the little depression and it really looks pretty nice. I show it to my wife, she said she liked but it was a shame no one would see the underside because it was also very pretty. On a lark, I flipped the piece over and with just a little surgery the bowl sits very nicely there as well. Not especially happy with how the pictures show the bowl and stand but I hope you get the idea. From the underside of the bowl. For what it's worth. Wife told me if I have any more of those pieces I might to just make some of these to stand on their own. Steve

    Wooden Pens/Pencils

    So i'm pondering getting into making turned pens/pencils. i have a lathe, but i think it's a little big for pens, and yesterday I got the Penn State Industries catalog, that features all manner of turned pens/pencils stuff you need to make these things. i'd mostly give them away, although if you offered me some $$, i'd say yes. so what should i look for/avoid in this? they have a little starter kit, including a little lathe just for pens, that looks like a good place to start and learn how to do this. i appears that there are standard sizes/dimensions for size of pen, size of hole in the middle. any advice or warnings? thanks.

    Scrap Ornament Finished

    I think it is a challenge to make these things and also a surprise when I turn down to a different wood. I can't plan a design I just to go with what I have. I laugh sometimes and sometimes something special happens. Of course there are some that end up in my waste bin too. (You won't see pictures of them)

    I Found the Last of the Scrap

    Many years ago I made small inlaid tables, plaques, etc. When cleaning up I found more scrap and will try one last time to make something again. One of the problems is tare out, due to the different hardnesses of the wood. Hope to finish it tomorrow

    Scrap Wood Ornament

    This time I really had to look all my waste bins several times to come up with enough pieces to glue together to finish. I didn't want to have to make a trip to Rocklers for more wood
  9. I turned a similar wedding basket illusïon a couple years ago as an auction item for my turning club. This one is somewhat smaller at only 12½ inches in diameter. This one will be in the SWAT 2-for-1 drawing next month. The wood is maple and if my memory is correct it has 58 rows of ⅛ inch beads. I used pyrography to create the illusion of a coiled basket and then used Copic ink pens to color the design.

    Starting To Build A Tea Pot.

    Two woods grown here by my wife, Chinese privet, variegated and I thought I was saving some walnut but it turned out to be oak I had stacked there. The easiest way to get the log ready for the lathe is first put the log in the Legacy Mill to knock off the bark and kinda get it round then go to the lathe... I had to stop and glue up some cracks was the reason I am doing two at once, let the glue dry on one while I play with the other.... and again, this is what I am shooting for. Don't matter if it will end up close or not, just doing one with some carving and maybe a name?

    Chip Carving Progress. or Not

    I have just about filled up both sides of mt practice block. I can see some progress but not doing anything I'd be willing to put my name on just yet. This is one of my early efforts. I had done maybe 10 sets by this time. Still pretty rough. This one is a iittle better and to my eye I can see some progress. Did this one just this evening. I would guess by now I've done at least 500 of these three corner chip cutouts. This is the best one so far. It's funny, I'll do one and think, "that's pretty good". Then, I do a few more and look at them as a unit and wonder, what was I looking at? There is so much junk and rough cuts. Getting better I think but still a long way to go. Steve

    Ornament Urchin

    This is an unusual ornament. The center part is a sea Urchin. We don't have many oceans here in the Denver area, so I had to look it up. It is one of those spiny things that looks like a ball with thousands of thorns sticking out. They come in many colors, but the shell inside isn't too colorful. I used it as it came.

    Ringmaster Carving

    Been planning on more Ringmaster bowls since DIL sold one. Steve inspired me to do some carving and burning . Has been maybe three years since doing a RM bowl so had to relearn some. When cutting the first ring it is waste so not worried if it stayed in one piece. So in cutting the first ring on two large bowls it broke and one hit the deflector and then bounced on my forehead. So i put my face shield on (open top) and the first one on next bowl broke and dangedif it didn’t hit the top of my head.

    Humble Beginnings.

    This may not seem like it's turning related but it is. I want to learn a little about chip carving for embellishing. I have some boxes turned and ready but thought it might be better to practice on some flat pieces first. Glad I did, it's harder than I thought it might be. I am finding it's a lot like turning in that it's all about technique. This is the most basic cut and probably the most often used in chip carving, the triangle. Going to take a lot of practice I think. I can see some progress from top to bottom but have a long way to go. Steve

    Dressed Up Ornament

    I had some Yellow hart left from another piece. I saw a bird in my trinket box along with a few other goodies and I thought "What if" . Here are the results

    Mushroom Ornament?

    I glued together a few odd pieces and turned them down. Much to my surprise it came out with mushrooms on it. Two right side up and two upside down Its only 2" high.

    'Maple Rocks' Is Done

    Just finished this morning. I will say that I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. The rim is always a challenge for me as I'm never quite sure what to do with it. I had originally planned a herringbone pattern but nothing I drew looked right to me. It's about 12" diameter and not quite 5" deep. I'm sure I've posted this already but the design on the bottom is called "phicops in a circle" It's a zentangle pattern and the original author is Brad Harms-CZT Steve
  18. I know from my earlier attempts to resize a picture with my mac, it is difficult to do when I used to be a windows guy. Anyway, this is my latest ornament and it features the unknown dark wood I am allergic to and some Osage Orange, yellow hart too. If it is still too big, I'll just live with it.

    Do It Yourself Lathe

    A few years back I semi-retired from building custom commercial and residential cabinets. To keep my hand in(our out) I started to build log furniture. Going from custom cabinets to log furniture has been a learning experience indeed. Turning tenons on a log is much different than turning dimension lumber spindles. I have a Record 48" woodworking lathe that is almost useless for spinning an unbalanced log.(to get 200-400 rpm's on an unbalanced log sets up so much vibration that it will yank a chisel right out of your hand, plus you are limited to 48" length. I looked at the pencil sharpener type tenon cutters that you mount on a drill. They are limited to a narrow range of diameters, and there is no provision for the tenon at one end to be parallel with the other end. With not much else on the market in the way of log furniture making tools other than ridiculously expensive metal cutting machine lathes, I decided I needed to build an inexpensive homemade lathe that would cut a round, parallel tenon of any size on either end of a 10" dia. x 8' log.(for bed frames, handrail, ect. I would use live tooling(router) instead of a chisel for the cutter. That would allow me to use a much slower rpm(40-60 rpm) than with a traditional woodworking lathe. It would also allow a much deeper cut and provide more accuracy than with a handheld chisel. I experimented with some wooden mockups of a benchtop lathe. I used 3-D solid modeling software to build virtual mockups and designs. I decided to build out of steel rather than wood. I used "off the shelf" bearings, shafts and gears, and standard size steel tubing and angles to simplify construction. While designing the lathe I realized that by combining a drill I could also have a giant drill press. I further realized that I could use the router as a giant mortise machine. To top it off I added a chainsaw so I could use it as a sawmill also. Sound like a tall order for a cabinetmaker? Maybe so, but I was going to give it a shot. I spent a year of Sundays drawing, building mockups, measuring tool lengths and strokes necessary for the different functions before I cut a piece of metal one. I used the old SHOPSMITH as inspiration for the design. It took several more months of Sundays to build. I am really pleased with the results and would like to hear your comments and opinions on how I did. Go to attached dropbox links for more detailed pics and info on how you can build your own from my prints. machine: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nr4yw91iv2hgdl0/AACv5-Unq_KSGyYK-2YHwWIBa?dl=0 furniture it can build: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pq9hfk8rqr7l416/AADQZxeku_HGeIBLpz4MeasIa?dl=0

    Demo Prep

    Our club meets this Sunday and I am doing the demo. Have decided on a fairly simple project from a video by Steve Jones . A seed starter pot maker. Many club members don't do demos and don't realize what goes into preparing for one. The demo I'm doing is "skew heavy". Steve Jones is a production turner from England the best I've ever seen with a skew. Even though I'm fairly adept with a skew I can't hold a candle to Steve. Even so, I want to do the demo using as many of his techniques as possible. With that in mind I have turned several pieces to get it down. This is maybe half of the ones I've done for practice. Add to that, transporting tools, materials, making notes, rehearsing, etc. etc. and doing a demo is a significant commitment in time and effort. On the other hand, I truly believe, the person doing the demo learns much more than anyone who watches it and the benefits far out weigh the inconveniences. Steve

    What Is This Piece

    I'm not the brightest light bulb in the crowd and this turning tool is something I've never seen. Is the piece on the tail one piece or is it a continual piece from head to tail. What is it called and what does it look like on the bench? Thanks

    Wood Cracking

    Is there anything I can do to keep wood from cracking? I was making a bird house. I had to stop and got tied up for a while. I went back out 2 or 3 days later and it had a huge crack. The first picture is when I was working on it and the second picture is after three days of just sitting on the lathe.

    Still Tinkering With Color

    I wanted to try using latex paint to fade from one tint to another. I used the multi color ply and some maple. I kept tinkering until I liked the effect and sprayed it with poly. The one thing that is missing is the wood look, but I guess if I turned it, it still counts.

    Scrap Wood Again

    I've been the scrap pile again, experimenting with wood and acrylic glitter. The ball is thin pieces of Yellow Hart and Bubinga (I think). The shaft is plain ole pine. I painted the pine and I layered the glitter in thick layers in the crease and allowed to dry overnight, then repeated with the glitter. It came out OK and I think I may have an effect I'll use in the future
