  1. Well, June is over half way done and summer begins on Saturday! It was almost a "4 For" Mimi and me. When we were married it was the first day of summer (and the longest day of my life the year). This year the first day of summer falls on June 20. Had it been one day later we could have had Fathers Day, first day of summer, longest day of the year and our anniversary all at once! Please remember that our annual fundraiser/raffle is being held. We still have a ways to go to meet our goal. Check out the details at- Our Patriot Turners- I think the last 2 weeks must have maxed out the Patriot's bandwidth with all of the discussions here on the Turner's Forum. If you missed it last week, @AndrewB was working with his new lathe. We all pitched in to offer advice and the discussion continued well past Wednesday. This picks up the discussion from late Wednesday- @AndrewB showed us some more of his turnings and shared some of his frustrations- Andrew also was wondering about food safe finishes and showed us a new toy he purchased- Please head over to Andrews posts and see if you can offer any suggestions or ideas. Member @Skippack posted a picture of a beautiful maple bowl in our gallery- Please give him a big thumbs up for this awesome piece! @Gerald turned a thin end grain bowl. Gerald explains some of the process and what happens next- @Gunny gave us a look at his gorgeous, finished Lazy Susan- You can read the entire thread here- What’s Coming Up- @Gerald gave me a heads-up for another virtual turning demonstration. Please check this from last Week's "Wednesday's..." Don't forget Cindy Drozda has scheduled additional demonstrations- You can find all of the details at http://cindydrozda.com/ For The Newbies- Last week we mentioned how the different carbide cutter rakes work on a turning I was making. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools was kind enough to provide this PDF file from Easy Wood Tools that illustrates their cutting characteristics- Why is rake important in woodturning Final rev 6.11.2020.pdf The Woodturning Monthly newsletter arrived. There's a really great article discussing how to cut bowl blanks from trees. Great illustrations! The entire newsletter can be viewed at- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Expand Your Horizons- Rick Turns just uploaded a video on turning a bowl from a piece of Mulberry. He then embellished to finished bowl using aan unusual idea- New Turning Items- Our new turning item last week was a heavy duty drive spur. @Gerald provided a link to another one This one has removable/replaceable blades- Click on the image for the link to more information. Woodturners Wonders has a new light available- Click on the above image for the link to more information Everything Else- Rick Turns uploaded his weekly list of YouTube turning videos- I have been following along with @AndrewB's post and his progress with his turnings. Andrew's projects are mostly face glued blanks then mounted with a face plate- perfectly acceptable. But I got to thinking (I know that's dangerous for me!) that instead of flat face glued pieces, longer strips glued-up in a blank can make for some interesting turned patterns when "spindle" turned. Here's an example of what I was thinking- That elm bowl got finished up and Mimi has already given it away- Just mineral oil and beeswax Safe turning and stay healthy
  2. My wife has asked for a Lazy Susan for our dining room table. As she rarely asks for such things I was happy to get one started. To put what she wants on it, candles and such required 12 inch diameter. My lathe capacity is only 10. BUT, I do have a drill press so I glued up a blank and used my circle cutting jig on the bandsaw to make the bottom piece. Once done I used a 1/4 threaded rod and bearing set on the bottom to secure to the drill press table. Then set the speed to 700 and smoothed up the edges and made it nice and round. Took maybe 5 minutes. The rest of the parts my lathe can handle so I glued up a nice stem and a 5 inch base to support a candle holder I made previously. In making this I am using threaded rod as a centering pin. Once all the pieces are done I will use a dowel to glue it all together. Works for me, maybe not for others. I have been known to change my mind and this allows me to do so. Progress as of this evening. The red circles are where I am thinking I will attach a piece of chain all the way around the pieces. We have a nautical theme in our home which this fits nicely. I plan to route out a 3/8 inch groove to make a channel for the chain to sit in. This will also keep stuff on the thing when spun around. Any suggestions on something different are welcome.
  3. Thunderstorm in progress here this evening. Not too much rain so far. Please remember that our annual fund drive/raffle is in progress. More about the awesome prizes and what we do with the proceeds is found here- Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB wins the prize this week for the most contributions to our forum! In response to last week's "Wednesday's...", Andrew reviewed is purchase of Savannah carbide tools along with a link to a source- He also provided additional information on the Wen lathe he purchased- Andrew also started a great discussion about which screws to use when turning with a faceplate. Lots of great suggestions and ides were given- After Andrew solved the faceplate problem he showed us his candle holder Check out the great comments and suggestions offered by our forum members- Andrew also asked us about a galloping lathe! Unbalanced turning blanks can get your lathe walking around the shop. He received a bunch of great suggestions on anchoring the lathe. Check out his post and see if you can add any additional ideas- The fact that Andrew asks questions about things of which he is unsure has really brought our forum alive! We have had so many great ideas and suggestions. Thank You all for being here!!! In this post, there are a variety of topics, one leading to another- Please check it out- @Gunny is building a Lazy Susan. He asked us about how he could trim out the disks He is looking for a nautical theme. See his post and give him some ideas- What’s Coming Up- Don't forget that the AAW is presenting their annual symposium as a virtual event- Click on the image above for the link to more information. For The Newbies- A short video from Woodworker's Journal showing how to turn a small yarn bowl from a glued-up blank. Rob Johnstone is the presenter- We often show the work of Carl Jacobson in this weekly post. Here's a link to an article, from Woodcraft, about Carl and his woodworking and woodturning adventures- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/welcome-to-carl-jacobson-s-world?trk_msg=MG4VHH78BSLKP042QCRGRP2H94&trk_contact=QNSFAEQ45HFA1IHE09ORJKR45S&trk_sid=VE2RTBE6U7IN2QAPIP4HNBNF4S&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=WCBLOG%3a+WELCOME+TO+CARL+JACOBSON%26%2339%3bS+WORLD&utm_campaign=Woodcraft's+June+Catalog Expand Your Horizons- Have a chess player in your circle of friends? A nice "Rook Box" turned by Mike Peace- New Turning Items- The folks at Woodturners Wonders Have a new Drive Spur. If you need a super heavy duty one, this might be what you are looking for- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/lathe-accessories/products/big-bite-jumbo-spur-center Everything Else- Rick Turns weekly YouTube video list for woodturners- There was some discussion in our forum comparing the finish obtainable with carbide cutters vs. traditional HSS tools. I have been messing/experimenting with a chinese elm bowl. It seemed all my tools- negative rake carbide and HSS- were not providing the finish I was looking for. A lot of tear out. Just for the heck of it, I replaced the negative rake cutter on the Easy Wood Tools "Rougher" with their standard Ci1 R2 cutter. Then cranked the speed up to about 1500 RPMs You can see (about in the center of each picture) the change in surface texture between the negative rake and standard cutter. For this particular operation, the standard cutter produced the superior finish. Chinese elm has lovely grain but is not the easiest wood to get a nice finish directly from the tools. Sanded and ready to finish out the bottom. Safe turning and stay healthy
  4. This is a project that use a LOT more than just the CNC but I decided to put it here anyway. Please move it if necessary. Started yesterday with some cutoff pieces of Walnut, finished it today, shipping it to NY on Monday. Finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer. When your planer isn't big enough and the CNC is... Enjoy!

  5. I just joined the forum so I thought I would start with my latest turning project. This is a project to turn an existing liquor cabinet into something to bring it into line with our Art Deco theme for this house. It involves three separate turnings in a tulip style which will be mounted vertically on a 1 5/16” brass pole and progressively getting smaller in diameter, largest on the bottom. The “tulips” are all 15” high, and are 16”, 13” and 11” in diameter. I am making them from 8/4 African mahogany. The biggest challenge has been to arrange the grain pattern to end up looking like overlapping petals. On top of each tulip will be an alder platter attached and 2” larger diameter than the turning. So it is basically a vertical mounted lazy susan. The first and largest turning is now complete. Paul
  6. Ok, I'm going to stay a new thread to show my progress else it should just get lost in a thread that had nothing to do with it. So far I managed to get the base top drawer frames and top started. I tried three times with a strap clamp and it slipped off every time, the clamp method sucks too but at least I got layer on. Two more to go.
  7. Daughter #2 has requested a marble/granite lazy susan. About 12" to 18" in diameter My dilemma---- a remnant from a counter top is 3/4" to 1" thick and will be kinda heavy and chances are I'll not be able to cut it with what I have at hand. So I was thinking of a floor tile. Cut it with a diamond jigsaw blade. Has anyone cut a circle into stone with good results? What did you use and how much of a PIA was it? The stone top will be attached to the mechanism with construction adhesive and then to wood base with screws. Edge I can treat with the diamond disks that I have. Thoughts? Comments? U tube has limited video---that I can find. thks smitty
  8. I'm starting to work on a Lazy Susan for the holidays-----did I give myself enough time??? The diameter is 22" & about 1" thick made from pine--bot from HD(?) or Lowes The bearing plate is 12" diameter. What would be a safe size (either square or round) for the base plate? I'm thinking in the 18 to 19 inch range. Or is that overkill? What's going on top?? probably just dishes/bowls. I can't see my daughter putting pots/pans on it.
  9. Here is a great fixture for rotating a piece while you are finishing. Simply a ball-bearing lazy susan hardware on a scrap piece of plywood. Mine's well used. Prop your piece(s) up on one of the prior stand-offs and rotate as you stain or finish. Under side Top side

  11. Well my Christmas projects are finally coming to an end. We had three Green Egg tables picked up over the weekend and that cleared out a lot of room in the shop. I finished up the Oak Lazy Susan and it got picked up yesterday. I also finished and will deliver this afternoon the two Walnut Shadow Boxes. Sunday afternoon I cut out and glued the pieces for a Lego Table. Last night when I got home and got everything sanded and most of the table assembled. I have a trim piece that will go around the top and stick up 3/4" so the pieces don't slide off the table. Then it gets spray painted and will be ready for Christmas Day. So I am about ready to clean up the shop and give it a rest for a week or two before we start on Next year. I hope you all have your projects finished. We have been very blessed in the shop this year and it has been quite busy.
