  1. Maple wood carves great and does not dent like balsa does!!

    © not that I know of

  2. Some of the "old timers" here will remember I had to be away from turning for an extended period. When things kind of returned to normal I had lost some of my motivation to be in the shop. Other interests, family time, and if I'm being honest, laziness, kept me idle. Finally decided I need to get productive again and this is my first serious turning for fun in a long while. Happily and surprisingly, I wasn't as rusty as I feared, that means I still remember how to sand! Anyway, here is my bowl, maple, about 12"X3". I love maple, sometimes the grain is smooth and creamy but fairly plain and so
  3. So far mostly a scroll saw and a band saw for the general shape. I think I will try to get it much thinner than the first spoon which was mesquite.
  4. After that fiasco of cracking my myrtle wood bowl I turned out my maple bowl and it came out quite nice. I left the walls just a bit thicker seemed to hold up quite nicely. In the short run of things this ones almost done.
  5. Got this from a friend this morning. Just a warning: I am redoing my kitchen and have been staining my Maple molding and drawer fronts with TransTint, No problem. But when I stained the veneer on my island and stiles & rails it turned blotchy. I called them this morning and asked them how to fix it, they told me it won't work on veneer! I used denatured alcohol as I was told water would cause the veneer to expand. The fellow I talked with said it didn't matter.
  6. Can you believe it? Tomorrow is the first day of October! One of own, @Charles Nicholls, could use some prayers and good thoughts. Charles is in the hospital and hopefully recovering but if you could take a moment and send some positive energy his way, I'm sure it will be appreciated. A little more information is here- EDIT EDIT EDIT--- Just received word that Charles has been moved from the hospital to a rehab facility. Things are looking up! Our Patriot Turners- Last week @Masonsailor showed us his beginning Christmas present project. He has added even mor
  7. Yesterday son and I made some Pull Out Shelving for mama, see proceeding link. And while cutting down the panel for the shelves, we had to do some cross cutting of ply on my Shopsmith. I was pleasantly, actually, very very happy, to see the quality of cut that was produced on the smith with the blade I used. Also this cut was made without a zero clearance insert, I just had on the factory insert, and the quality was perfect, I was very impressed. I don't remember getting this good a cut even on my 12" 5hp Grizz cabinet saw using an 80 tooth Amana Blue melamine blade. I am not sure what ha
  8. While I'm waiting on the Shelix cutterhead for my jointer to move forward on the audio rack I'm working on a very large Hard Rock Maple cutting board, at least it's large to me - 18" x 24" x 2" thick. It weighs about 32 lbs. which is fairly stout, I think. Matter of fact, the hardest thing about doing one this size is difficulty in handling the glued up board. It will have a juice groove along two edges of one side and the other side will be laser engraved with a family crest. Obviously, the side with the juice groove is the working side and the laser engraved side is for show.

    This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. This is a wonderful example of Danish work at its core, what a great crafts project to undertake, and it will sure to be the center piece of any table setting or this would also make a wonderful coffee table accessories. I love Danish, the simplicity, the folk art that surrounds it, and this looks like it wo
  10. If you go back to the entry prior to this "unusual ornament" you will see the block I made this one from. This one looks like it has many different designs in it and I didn't see this outcome until I stopped the lathe. I like surprises like this.
  11. During shop clean up, I found some narrow strips of walnut from an old forgotten job. The were approx a quarter inch sq. by 10". Since we are still under self quarantine, I have lots of time and decided to make a glue up using these strips and some maple & pine. It came out kinda nice.I made two of them and may turn the other one in the opposite direction. The oval is about inch and three quarters. I haven't been turning much lately and it is nice to get back where time has no meaning. It goes by so quickly when you are having fun.
  12. Just completed,...horn is by Bill Smith and myself. Tiger maple base plug.
  13. I'm building some walnut bedside tables with 24" circular tops. For visual interest...and because it'll be fun... I'd like to use 12 alternating maple and walnut angled segments in a sun burst pattern. Ive gotten far enough to understand that the angles need to be 30°...I think. Do I cut each angle side at 15° ? Please help a mathematically challenged old man. And, muchas gracias!!!
  14. Haven't figured out what it might be but at least I got the wood prepared and the pattern glued on and cut out with the scroll saw... I got to figure out what it will be as I start grinding stuff away!
  15. The largest platter I’ve ever turned. A 15 inch silver maple platter. I turned this on my Laguna Revo 1216 lathe on the outboard side. A bit nerve racking doing it. First I used the worm screw in the chuck and I probably should have used a face plate...once I had the bottom done and made the tenon for the chuck, it was easier hogging out the inside. I’m pleased with the way it came out...and so is my wife! I sanded up to 4000 grit, then used triple e and finally Aussie oil. Hope you folks like it...
  16. Here's a Join or Die and BFranklin snake on a flatty,.......snake only on a matching primer. Horns by Bill Smith and myself. Base plugs are tiger maple as usual
  17. I made 5 of these shaker oval boxes. They’re #3s and are made from Curley maple. I’ve made about 30 of different sizes before and we’re all cherry, but I wanted to try some maple to see how well it bends...and it was great. Sanded to 220 and still need to add a finish. I think I’ll use some watch danish oil...wait three days and apply some poly. I’m actually going to try and sell these, but not sure how much to ask. I was thinking 20 buck a piece.
  18. Well, this is my first rolling pin of any kind. When I do something for the first time, I jump in and try the most difficult thing. This was “supposed to be a Celtic knot rolling pin. It looks more like a drunken knot...ha ha....I thought turning the taper would be difficult, but it wasn’t to bad. I know there must be a way of doing it....anyhow here is a photo of it. It’s Curley maple with walnut inlays...
  19. First batch of ornaments for the year. Mostly maple, cherry, and walnut, there are a couple sycamore globes. There is one sea urchin ornament, that one has ebony finials. We spent a few days on Jacksonville beach with my wife's brother and his wife. Two of our best friends in the world. Picked some sea urchins and this ornament will go to them as a remembrance. Most of these are dyed "inside out". A couple local gift shops sell a few of these and those are the most popular. To me, it's hard beat just plain wood grain. Thanks for looking! Steve
  20. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    I got in the shop a little and decided to make my own layout tools, starting with the ever so useful 6" square. Since it's the most used size in my work, it's a good jumping off point. Then I'll create a smaller 3" followed up by a few larger squares. I love how this one feels, and you know what? No more accidental scratching or marring of wood surfaces like you may get with steel squares.
  21. Have a current order for honey dippers, this is the first batch of 20 finished. Some of the these have some really nice grain in the lids. Steve

    Curly Maple Chest

    From the album: 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    Installing the mortised lock was interesting, having to do it after the entire chest was finished was a tad stressful to say the least. But it does lock, and looks wonderful.
  23. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    I built this square from left over Walnut from some project eons ago, and the Curly Maple is scrap from a Shaker Rocker I am currently building. The two pins are of Walnut as well. They are through-pins.
  24. Again. Not quite sure what will come out of there...yet. Have a lot of candy bar sized pieces of Walnut.... Couple pieces of Curly Maple.... A few pieces of White oak and some Pine.. Most are about ..1/2" thick or so. Been using a plane to square them up a bit......have to watch when I pull the plane back......the front end of the plane would slip off the end of the board, and then a finger gets cut from the sharp corners of the board. OW! needed to slow it down a notch. No pictures just yet, still not sure WHAT sort of thing the Single
