  1. Remember- Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald is trying out some new coloring techniques. His turning/coloring really creates some interesting designs in the wood! Please head on over to Geralds post and let him know how much you like this piece- Gerald also showed us a round hollow form that his coloring really made the grain of the wood stand out! Gerald explains what he did in his post @HandyDan gave us a really nice set of pictures on how he made his baby rattles- Check out his post to see what all went into making these beauties! @Gene Howe gave us a heads up on a video that should be mandatory viewing for every person who operates a lathe. Thanks Gene. What’s Coming Up- If you are near Provo, Utah, Craft Supplies USA is offering several turning workshops- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. Also- Again, clicking on the above image will connect you to more information and registration to this event. For The Newbies- When you start to turn bowls, you generally have two options for obtaining wood. Buy the mostly dried blank or find a freshly cut tree. In either case, unless you turn the bowl from start to finish in one sitting, drying the wood between turnings may be necessary. Rick Turns found a cool and inexpensive way to slow the drying process and reduce the chance of checking and cracking- Expand Your Horizons- Everyone knows I'm a "jig junky". Here's a video showing a shop made jig to use for turning Twisted Boxes. New Turning Items- Last week we displayed a basket weave illusion bowl from @Billy B. If you were interested in trying your hand at this awesome technique, Chef Ware Kits has what you need to get started- Find more on the lits and prices at- https://chefwarekits.com/Basket-Weave-Kits-c9880431 The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a new device to hold your dust collection hose. It is flexible and adjustable! Find out more about it at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/lathe-track/products/trac-vac-flexible-dust-collector Everything Else- Donations- I copied and pasted this from @John Morris. It would be great if each of us turners could help out! "We usually have a fundraiser raffle during the summer to help pay for our community, but my health took a dive this summer, and I never had the time nor the mind to organize our annual summer fundraiser, so we are falling short of our budgetary obligations. We will be very tight. If you are able to donate to our community, a dollar on up, it all helps." If you'd like to donate to our community, please see this page at https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/clients/donations/ I finally put the finish on the little walnut "spaceship"- Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools mini hollowers and their micro detailer ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) Safe turning
  2. The latest edition of Woodturning Monthly has arrived! Read it here- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email
  3. Starting with the bad news first- just 5 days left until your Income Taxes are due. Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker turned a bunch of garden dibbles as practice for a demo he was preparing for the turning club to which he belongs. Lots of comments and some questions about the project. Steve also followed up on how the demonstration went. See Steve's entire post at- @Ron Altier created more ornament magic with the colored plywood. He certainly is the master of these items- Ron explains his turning at- @Gerald continues to refine the offering plates he has been commissioned to create. He added to his post showing us the color and additional aspects of the project- Check out the updates here- Gerald also posted a nifty tip about filling holes in a turning. It is in our Turning Tips section. If you have a tip to offer or readers, please be sure to post it! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. For The Newbies- Looking for a project that will make a nice gift and help you explore several woodturning techniques? Mike Peace posted a "how-to" video for making a screwdriver. He shows us a couple of ways to get the hardware- If you are a little more advance, or just want to see some techniques that may be new to you, David Marks' video on bowl turning techniques may fill the bill- Expand Your Horizons- In the patriot Woodworking forum, there has been an ongoing thread about creating an "old barnwood" finish. Sandblasting was mentioned as a possible method. Well, Tim Yoder uses sandblasting as a way to embellish a turning- making it look very old and weathered. This is a 2 part video set. Part 2 is linked from Tim's channel- New Turning Items- Recently, Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) released their new negative rake cutters for all of their turning tools. Designed for the turners who work primarily with resins and acrylics; these cutters also work awesomely on hardwoods. If you haven't tried them, you owe it to yourself to check them out. Carl Jacobson recently posted a video showing these cutters in action- Sometimes you just need a light in places where your light doesn't fit or you need that third hand to hold the light. Cindy Drozda has just the thing. A miniature, magnetized LED lamp- Specifications and ordering information is available on Ms. Drozda's site- http://www.cindydrozda.com/html/Microlight.html Everything Else- Rick Turns has put up the YouTube list of March woodturning video. This is a tremendous amount of work for Rick. If you check these out, PLEASE leave a comment for Rick- The April issue of the Woodturning OnLine newsletter is available. Check out the first video on creating a "half twist" bowl. It's really neat! https://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php?edition=042019 I did finally get a chance to finish up a couple of turnings and to do a little more Easy Wood Tools practice. The elm hollow vessel finally finished. I think I kept the Starbond company in business with the amount of CA used to keep this thing together- I was gifted some wood from an acquaintance whose father passed away. One of the smaller pieces was "Sweet Gum". This was my first experience with this wood. It was easy to turn and sand. This particular piece was a little punky- A little more finial practice. Just turned, no sanding. Maple- you gotta love those EWT negative rake cutters- Safe turning
  4. Latest newsletter available! http://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email
  5. Just got this in an email from Woodworker's Journal. Thought some of us might be interested. Woodworker’s Journal subscribers love our regular “Woodturning” department and the advice of our expert woodturner, Ernie Conover. But turning isn’t the focus of our “Weekly” newsletter, and with just six print issues per year, it’s hard to meet our readers’ requests for even more turning content. That’s why Woodworker’s Journal is thrilled to be partnering with the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) to bring you this new free monthly newsletter. The AAW is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the art and craft of woodturning globally. It possesses the single largest collection of woodturning information anywhere and its award-winning journal, American Woodturner, is the foremost publication on the art and craft of woodturning in the world. Woodturning is one of the fastest growing areas of hobbyist woodworking, and once you’ve turned your first bowl, pen or furniture spindle, you’ll see why! A lathe can help you transform a chunk of firewood into a finished gift in just an hour or two, and woodturning doesn’t require a huge investment — even a benchtop lathe and a couple of gouges can get you up and running. For me, “turning” is as close as a woodworker can get to the kind of artistic freedom potters feel. And, it sure is fun to take a break from straight lines and hard measurements every now and then. So thanks for signing up! Be sure to tell your turning buddies to do the same. Then, by all means, let’s keep learning but even more importantly — doing! We hope our new monthly woodturning newsletter will encourage you to get out to the shop and, well, turn something! The rewards are rich, and the process is almost always a great time. Looks like there is a link on their home page.
  6. the Lee Valley Woodworking Newsletter - Volume 13, Issue 2 is out... I want one even if it's a bit fishy... From the Collection...
  7. This video was in the latest Woodturning Online Newsletter. I thought it was pretty entertaining. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qoiFU_aLyM&feature=youtu.be
  8. Happy Birthday America!!! Thunderstorms slowly moving thru our area right now. The annual fireworks display may be postponed. @Gerald posted a nice looking platter he is currently making- He has had several questions and comment about the process and the wood grain. @HandyDan added a nice image of one of his turnings to help explain what is meant by "feathering"- @Smallpatch finished up the teapots he has been creating- Final comments are in his post- @Steve Krumanaker is perfecting his ability to add decorations to his turnings. He is learning "Chip Carving". Looks to me as if he has got the process pretty well mastered- His post shows his progress- I thought of Steve when I happened across a site that creates custom rolling pins. Steve has a neat shop built laser engraver. The folks at http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2015/06/new-laser-engraved-rolling-pins-by-valek-imprint-elaborate-designs-on-baked-goods/ make some neat designs on rolling pins- These could make some really fancy cookies! Mike Peace has a 2 part video for making brush lids for finishing jars. Part 2 is linked from his YouTube page- This reminded me of @Steve Krumanaker's honey jars. The Woodturning OnLine newsletter came this week. Their featured project is one by Carl Jacobson. His video shows a Yin Yang turned platter. The "New and Hot" sections, of the newsletter, has some interesting items as well. The entire newsletter is at- http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php Woodworker's Journal posted a YouTube video by Ernie Conover on turning small hollow vessels. Nice explanations and demonstration- I had the chance to play a little, this week. Started a little turning blank for the August demo. I forget where I read about this trick, maybe Mike Peace or Rick Turns, about using TiteBond glue as a sealer. I sealed up the turning blanks after I cut them from the logs and none have cracked. I sealed this rough blank turning the same way hoping it will be fine until I need it. Safe turning
  9. Here is the latest Lee Valley newsletter. A very interesting story on collectible planes. http://www.leevalley.com/us/newsletters/Woodworking/2870/newsletter.htm
  10. Thought this might be of interest for you turners. Scroll past the first image. Then, the tools are beyond the newsletter verbiage. http://admailemail.com/view/47157c1/4881dc/
  11. Our Patriot turners were really active this past week with more projects, questions and ideas! @Ron Altier's wife got him a really nice turner's smock. I'm pretty sure the other turners were jealous considering the ribbing he took. I think it will provide great protection from flying chips (or sparks)! Some of the good natured comments are at- Ron also posted a neat little "chip deflector" that he made. The simple design lends itself to virtually any tool manufacturer. Ron explains how he made this in his post- Ron was having trouble with his lathe tailstock not locking securely. Many of our members offered suggestions and ideas. Ron was able to devise a way to repair the problem. The following two threads discuss the problem and what Ron did to get it fixed- @Cliff lamented about some roadside wood treasures he managed to pickup. Unfortunately, the tree held a few unpleasant surprises. @Gene Howe sent me a link to an article by Mr. Davide Reed Smith. In this particular how-to, Mr. Smith provides detailed instructions on how to make pen turning jaws for a 4 jaw chuck. Follow this link for the complete tutorial- http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/WoodAuxJaws/WoodAuxJaws.htm @Steve Krumanaker has made a few more of his Cryptex Boxes. Steve's combination of turning and laser engraving produces fantastic results. See Steve's post for more images and information on the engraved symbols- @Gerald posed a question about using "colorply" for handles in kit type projects (i.e. bottle openers). Several of our members offered their thoughts and ideas- Rick Turns posted his March list of YouTube woodturning videos- The Woodturning OnLine newsletter came this week. There are some interesting articles and a video from Mr. Richard Raffan on "Understanding Catches". The newsletter can be found at- http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php Here's the video- Carl Jacobson turns a resin/burl piece in his mobile shop. Check out the Easy Wood Tools and chuck! ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools) The EWT tools make turning resin a breeze. The curls just fly off of the piece! Safe turning
  12. The latest winter storm tracked about 75 miles east of the predicted position. We got nothin'. Sorry @Cliff. Last week we posted a site that sold threaded inserts. @HandyDan was curious about the installation. I wrote to the seller inquiring about specifics and this is his response- Hi Lewis, I send a tips sheet with the inserts but no real instructions other than to relieve just enough wood for the body and flange to fit snug and not to mix the epoxy until you are satisfied with the dry fit. The lid I make by gluing a plug on a flat piece that I turn till the plug fits, again sneaking up on the fit a bit at a time till satisfied, then mix some epoxy. I don't do videos but have a ton of photos in albums on the Facebook shop site that have cleared up a lot of questions on how I use them making out urns and Beads of Courage jars. Hope this helps, thanks for asking. Along those same lines, @Gene Howe mentioned he has seen mason jar lids used for threaded turnings. If you missed it, the entire post is here- Also, last week we posted a thread about @Steve Krumanaker's new laser engraver. Steve added another video showing the more of the laser's operation- Every Monday morning @John Morris posts the question asking what we have done and what we plan for the week. Well, one of our turners- @PostalTom was busy modifying his lathe set up for easier cleanup and use. Check out the pictures he posted and maybe you can get some ideas for your own shop! Scroll to the end of the "Monday Morning" post for Tom's pictures. Thanks for sharing this, Tom! Many of our turnings involve a glue-up of some sort. Patriot member @Gene Howe posted a link to a video featuring an ultraviolet light sensitive glue from Titebond. This might be something useful for your next segmented turning- I subscribe to the e-Tips from woodsmith. Every once in a while they post one for turners. This tip looked pretty neat as we turners usually have several tools pulled from the tool rack when turning a project. Here's the link to the video- https://cdn.woodsmith.com/etip/2018/02/lathe-tool-rack-SD.mp4 There are some turning symposiums coming up on the east coast. Easy Wood Tools will be in Atlanta for the Woodworking Shows next weekend- http://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/atlanta.html. The The Mid Atlantic Woodturners Association will be in Lancaster, PA at the end of September. You can check out the details here- http://www.mawts.com/ I picked up this video from the Easy Wood Tools Twitter feed (Thanks @Jim from Easy Wood Tools). The turner uses several of the EWT tools as well as their awesome chuck. I also spied another Easy Wood Tool product that I had not seen before. The EWT Live Center. Here's the video on making a VERY large pepper grinder. And here is additional information on the Live Center- http://www.easywoodtools.com/live-center-3/ Turner Mike Peace did a video on the various texturing tools available, including some shop made versions. This video is from a live demonstration and is a little longer than most. Turner @HandyDan sent me a link to this video. There were several really neat things that caught my eye (besides the fact that OSHA wasn't there). I thought the turners hand position, with his finger under the tool rest probably gave him extra control of the tools. The brilliance of the organic colors was unexpected. And, around 4:50 of the video, the helper uses an oil can. I thought at first it was for lubbing the lathe but I think it was something to apply to the colors. Thanks, Dan! Finally, The Woodturning OnLine newsletter came. One of the articles was a tutorial in pictures for making a suspended box- The article is by Bob Hamilton. http://bobhamswwing.com/Articles/Suspended Bowl/Suspended bowl Page 1.html The entire newsletter is here- http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php Relatives will be here, for a week, beginning next Wednesday. Not sure if I can get a few minutes to do a "Wednesday's Wisdom". Safe turning
  13. Having our first snow of the season. A little Alberta Clipper. It will probably be enough to make the grass white. We have another day or so to finish up The Patriot Woodworker Raffle for our Gold Star Family. If you haven't bought a ticket, there is still time! Also, again, a reminder that tagging your posts really helps visitors/members locate information for which they search. Tags are easy to do and only takes an extra second to complete. @Ron Altier posted a great question this week about using shavings as a method of finishing a turning. Check out the post and the ensuing discussion- Ron also posted a new Christmas ornament. It's a real beauty- The latest issue of Woodturning OnLine has lots of great information. They are featuring a project from Carl Jacobson which is very timely as winter begins in earnest. Carl makes a turned , rustic bird feeder. Great idea for our little feather friends- not so much for those pesky squirrels. There is also a PDF tutorial from Colin Spencer on turning a "pentagon" bowl. It can be seen at- https://www.woodturningonline.com/assets/turning_projects/Pentagon bowl instructions.pdf Check out the entire issue at- http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php Rick Turns has posted his list of turning videos for the month of November. Rick has developed, undoubtedly, the most extensive listing of turning videos on YouTube. I'm not sure but I believe Tim Yoder has been sipping the spiked eggnog- Safe turning
  14. is out and it has some really good articles... the sublinks are well worth a look too... http://www.leevalley.com/en/newsletters/Woodworking/2242/newsletter.htm
