    Hail Mary

    Here is what I have been working on for so long. Started out with rough cut hard maple that had been stored for a few years. It wasn't the best wood but I was able to resaw it and get enough to make this plaque. It measures 24 inches wide and 32 inches high. Wood was planed down to three sixteenths. Didn't keep track of the hours. It was a challenge but, worth it. Made it for my grandson. He is putting it in his classroom
  2. Our woodturning club had an exchange challenge today. The idea is that members bring something they have turned, and exchange it with another member for something they have turned. I made a paper clip bowl out of maple and walnut. In the bottom are three rare earth magnets to keep the paper clips in the bowl as it gets slid around on the desk top. This turned out to be one of my learning experiences, aka mistakes, as I figured out halfway into the turning that I couldn't make a small bowl with a traditional curved bottom with a large chuck. Thus, the flared out bottom. Anyway, here's my project. Thanks for looking.

    Still With The Cryptex Boxes

    Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve

    The second cryptex

    This is the second cryptex I've finished. I re wrote the border file and I like this look much better. This one is a five ring code as I'm going to use it for the demo at our next meeting of the NorthEast Indiana Turners and Chiselers(NEITC). Anyone care to guess what is the code?? The first one actually works smoother, I didn't dry fit the rings before gluing it up and I should have. Oh well, someone said in another thread, it's how we grow. Steve

    Rifle case # 2

    Yesterday, I got all the olive planed and dimensioned for the case pieces. Today, it the walnut and maple's turn. The walnut is really rough, twisted and/or cupped. I'm using a sled that I built in' 06 that was featured in FWW. Here is a link to a video of how it's made. It works very well. But, it's a heavy beast. Especially with a 5' long 10" wide 4/4 board on it. Several passes @1/32 have been necessary to get one flat side. Tires me out. Luckily, the maple is already flat. This case will be different than the last one. The lid and bottom will be oversized glued up slabs with bread board ends...At least that's the plan, now. They'll extend about 3/4" at each end and somewhere around 1 1/2" in front. Those parts will be curved from the mid point to each end. Designing on the fly is fraught with danger but, oh so much more fun. Once the pieces are all cut and assembled for a dry fit, I'll get some pics.

    1st cryptex, rough

    This is my first cryptex and what a learning experience. It's really a pretty simple thing to make but dimensions are critical. I expect it will take two or three more before I get any I can use for gifts. I have to say I am thrilled at how well the rotary engraver worked once I got the pattern and spacing figured out. The rings have the alphabet on them but the code for each grand kid will be their birthday as it corresponds to the letters of the alphabet, won't tell them at first and see if one of them figures it out. I don't think they can guess it out as there are about 3 million combinations possible. I wasn't sure how long to make the barrels so I had to trim them off on the band saw, shouldn't be a problem on the next ones. From what I understand, these devices were used to transport sensitive messages. Supposedly the message would be written on parchment and a glass vial of vinegar was placed in with the message. A person couldn't break into the cryptex without breaking the vial which would dissolve the parchment. I don't know if all that's true but it makes a good story and these are kind of neat I think. FWIW, Carl Jacobson has three videos on making one of these and that's where I got the idea. Steve

    Rotary laser update, short video.

    This is a piece for the project that lead to me first considering if I could build something like this to begin with. A rough guess would put this at probably 3 or 4 years from idea to this point. The rings will be for a project I've wanted to do for a long time but just didn't like any of the available options for the lettering. My hand wood burning skills are not up to the task for sure. Anyway, my plan is to make several of the project for Grand kid Christmas presents this year, each one will take six identical rings. That means I'll need close to 50 of these rings made. The one in the machine is a test/setup piece. The little laser is doing exactly what I envisioned. You may notice the "A" looks blurry, that's because I re targeted the laser to center the script. Now, I have a benchmark and subsequent rings will be right. The rings are about 2 1/2" in diameter and the burn area is 1/2" wide. Has everyone figured out what is the project? Steve

    Rough turned

    I rough turned one of the bowl blanks. I am terrible at identifying types of wood. I'm sure some of you will know what it is.

    First box

    Made my first lidded box. It is salted maple. It is around 5.5 inches wide a 4 inches high. The only finish I put on was Shellawax.

    maple bowl with a funky edge

    A little maple bowl about 8" diameter and a couple inches deep. Probably one of the very first bowls I turned to finish green. I wanted to try an idea for embellishing and dug this one out of the pile. I was trying to make it look like it could have, may have occurred naturally but not sure. Rattle can lacquer finish. Can't really tell from the pictures but it's got a nice little warp going on, it's about 3/4" longer than it is wide. Steve

    A maple bowl

    A maple bowl in kind of a tulip shape, 12" diameter and 4" deep. I thought about "framing" the pattern with some heavy shading around the edge, decided not to and just left it plain. I turned this to be functional so it has bees wax for a finish. Steve
  16. Well, looks like I may be coming up for air soon! Been since the beginning of August since I've done some serious work in my shop. I just finished cleaning up and making my shop look like a workable space, and I set my Curly Maple Shaker Rocker on the bench that I started 5 months ago. I'm feeling pretty good here. I have my shop back! Dogs are enjoying the space too. I will sleep good tonight, the world is right again! Happy dogs!
  17. Child's high chair from an older issue Woodsmith magazine as a Christmas gift to some new grandparents/parents. The original plans have this as a "knock-down" unit but I made it permanent. Made from hard maple (walnut plugs). Water based poly finish (thanks for the advice on raising the grain). Tray is removable/adjustable and it has a seat belt. This is the second one of these I've made. Already delivered and to my amazement, it seemed to fit the size of the child! Thanks for looking!

    Cutting up a maple tree

    Long and wordy, go away now if you're smart. Regulars know I've had a good year. Spent a whole week learning from Glenn Lucas, more recently did a workshop day Cindy Drozda. Glenn's main source of income is bowls, lots of them. He will routinely process around three hundred or more bowls at a time, I think that's right. Everything from chainsawing the blanks to drying, to finishing. He has retail outlets that sell his bowls and order regularly. Cindy Drozda is known for her delicate finials, elegant hollow forms and working with exotic one of a kind pieces of wood. Most of her items are one off and sell for a pretty penny. She also makes money from selling tools. Today, I started working up the maple log I posted a picture of earlier this week. Put on my carharts, my steel toed boots, my loggers helmet and ear plugs, my leather gloves, etc. etc. etc. Fired up the chainsaw, muscled the blanks around and trimmed them up, coated them with sealer, stacked them, etc. etc. Arms feel like rubber tonight, legs are sore, back aches a little. After much reflection I have decided...Cindy has a better plan than Glenn. Steve

    Cube within a cube and maple score.

    Steve Twydell, whose youtube channel is "templeboy turnings" did a video on turning a "cube within a cube". It's kind of a neat project because you actually start with a cylinder and then turn it square before forming the inner cube. It's pretty much been a lesson in humility but after several attempts I had a limited success. No finish, no sanding on this as I'm still learning. The hardest part, at least for me, has been to get everything square. After that, it's pretty straightforward. Here's a link to his video. cube in a cube In other news that matters to no one but me, I scored a huge maple log this week. Close to 30' feel long and 24"+ at the butt. Got my work cut out for me. Steve
  20. I gotta get me some maple boards. I have this little wood rail that I fasten to one side. it gives me a two sided reference to get my forst teo sort of square and sort of flat surfaces.
  21. Have most of the Maple parts cut to rough sizes....saw blade is set up, connectors done. Goal is to make a Frame Saw... Will get a few pictures, later. Today being a Monday, after all Traditional Chinese Woodworking site has a bunch of videos ( in Mandarin) and a few show the fellow building such a saw. My feeble attempt will be close to what he is doing. I still need a 1/4" all-thread, a wing nut and washer to match..for use as the top cord to tension the saw blade. Tore a couple old Butcher's saws down for some of the parts. So, do I post this saw build here, or..in the Hand tool section?

    Got some new bowl gouges

    Most anyone who visits this forum will know I spent a week at Marc Adams in September. The guest teacher was Glenn Lucas. During that week I had the opportunity to use some of his signature bowl gouges. I was very impressed with the cut I got from them, enough so that I ordered his 1/2", 5/8", and the 5/8" bottom feeder bowl gouges. This is the first bowl I've used them on. It is hard maple, twice turned, harder than nails, and about 9" in diameter. In the picture I have sanded it with 150 grit only. I used a 3" disk in my drill and this is after about 5 minutes. In this picture the rim has not been sanded at all. It is the first time ever I started sanded with anything other than 60 or 80 grit on the inside of a bowl. I could start with 150 grit because there was virtually no tear out, even in the "problem" areas. FWIW, I have since finished sanded the bowl inside and I started with 320 grit on the rim. This is not meant to be a recommendation to buy his tools. I'm sure the techniques I learned from him contributed as well. It's not unusual for me to spend an hour or more sanding a bowl this size. I might have had 15 minutes on this one. Steve

    More ornaments

    A few ornaments from the latest run. There were 17 in this batch. Actually have started another 10 or so, that will probably be the last of them for this year. Steve
  24. Just finished up 12 more ornaments, I think that will do it for this year. That will give me about 45 altogether. Some will go in gift shops but many will be gifted. Anyway, I had a piece of spalted beech, heavily spalted but still solid enough to hollow, kind of unusual. Did one with walnut accents and one with maple. I like the walnut one for the contrast but then, I like the maple one too. Steve
