lew posted a topic in Wood Turners2018! Seem like just a couple of months ago I was starting up computers hoping they would function after the Y2K Bug scare! @PostalTom showed us a sweet bowl he made for his daughter. It is made from poplar! Check out his description here- @Steve Krumanaker turned an awesome natural edge walnut bowl but it was not without its' problems- Here's Steve's explanation of what happened- @Ksvet06 asked a question about searching the turning forum for specific information. Gang, this just reinforces the need for us all to add tags to our posts. Tags make searching for information much easier and a lot faster. @Gerald is turning more Beads Of Courage boxes and was looking for advice on a special piece of wood- He was inquiring if anyone had turned a vessel with a natural edge "side". Head on over to his post and see if you can offer some help. Probably all of the turners here are currently in the grips of the "Ol' Polar Vortex" (I hate the Weather Channel). Anyway, if you find it's too cold in your shop, pull up a chair, grab a warming beverage and enjoy a few extra videos. Tim Yoder turns a garden gnome (part 1, part 2 linked from the video)- Rick Turns posted a video of regrinding a parting tool to make cleaner cuts- I came across this group of videos from Stuart Batty. I'll give you the link as there are quite a few of them. https://vimeo.com/woodturning/videos/page:1/sort:alphabetical/format:thumbnail And if that's not enough videos to keep you warm, Rick Turns added his list of YouTube videos for the month of December- Finally, I was looking for an idea for a lathe jig and stumbled upon this site- http://www.docgreenwoodturner.com/index.html Lots of neat ideas and some beautiful turnings. Safe turning and keep warm
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
