    Scrap Ornament Finished

    I think it is a challenge to make these things and also a surprise when I turn down to a different wood. I can't plan a design I just to go with what I have. I laugh sometimes and sometimes something special happens. Of course there are some that end up in my waste bin too. (You won't see pictures of them)
  2. "It was another "Mom" day for me. Errands, appointments and making sure she ate a good supper. Our Patriot Turners- @PostalTom Is having a problem this the brass pen tubes coming out when he is squaring the blank ends. Check out his post and if you have any suggestions, please help him out! @Ron Altier created a beautiful new ornament from scraps. His glue-up was sure to reveal a beauty of a turning- Ron started my showing us what he had to work with- And as usual, we were not disappointed with his creativity- Ron didn't stop here! He also made this gorgeous piece- Ron's description is in this post- Last week @Gerald told us about a platter he was turning. He added the finish and the results are fantastic- Gerald added more to his original post about his finishing technique- @Billy B posted the most awesome Navajo Wedding Basket. I cannot imagine the patience it must take to create such a magnificent work of art- Please head over to Billy's post and share your kudos with him- @oldwoodie posted a nice tip for sealing up that free wood for which we are always searching. His procedure is at- What’s Coming Up- The Virginia Woodturners are hosting their symposium at Fishersville, VA on November 3 & 4. Here's a link to their site and registration information- http://www.virginiawoodturners.com/index.htm From The Internet- The American Association of Woodturners recently held their symposium in Oregon. Pretty long trip for many of us. Thanks to Woodcraft and Woodcraftmarketing, we can get a good look at some of the magnificent turnings that were on display- Everything Else- By now you probably have noticed the new "Home Page" for the Patriot site. @John Morris has been working hard to keep our site modern and fresh. As you watch the various forum images scroll across the top of the page, you can click on them to go to that forum. You and also click on the "Forums" link at the top center of the home page to go to the general forums page. Safe turning

    I Found the Last of the Scrap

    Many years ago I made small inlaid tables, plaques, etc. When cleaning up I found more scrap and will try one last time to make something again. One of the problems is tare out, due to the different hardnesses of the wood. Hope to finish it tomorrow

    Scrap Wood Ornament

    This time I really had to look all my waste bins several times to come up with enough pieces to glue together to finish. I didn't want to have to make a trip to Rocklers for more wood
  5. The much advertised heat wave is supposed to roll into our area tomorrow. Seems like every network news broadcast has to have a "weather" report. Strange. Lots happening around the Patriot this week. @Ron Altier turned a beautiful ornament using a sea urchin skeleton. The urchin has amazing patterns and markings. Read his post to see the compliments from our members- Ron also received the highest compliment imaginable from @Jim from Easy Wood Tools. Jim asked Ron for one of his ornaments to help decorate the Christmas tree at the Easy Wood Tools headquarters!!!!!!!! @Ron Dudelston had a new student in his shop. Ron and his daughter turned a an epoxy bowl. Here's the link to the video- https://www.facebook.com/ron.dudelston/videos/10211858367956604/ and here's Dad showing us how it's done- https://www.facebook.com/shellyreneeneal/videos/10156626150220625/. Sweet looking bowl!! @Gerald has been making more ringmaster bowls. Gerald makes his bowls unique by adding pyrography decorations. Gerald added more pictures in his post- @Smallpatch is getting close to finishing up his teapots. More about the process and some pictures at- A couple of events coming up in the near future. The Mid Atlantic Woodturning symposium will be held in September. Click on the above image to go to the registration information. In October, the Segmented Woodturners Symposium is scheduled. Click on the above image to go to the registration information. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools Easy Wood Tools shared a video on making finials by Tracey Malady. We have featured finial videos in the past. I liked this video because it explains the authors procedure very plainly. I had the opportunity to test drive the new Easy Wood Tools Mid Size Micro Detailer. This tool differs from the original EWT detailer in that the cutting tip comes to a distinct, sharp point. This new point permits much crisper transition and more precise corners. I used an ebony piano keys to create a finial (should have watched the video first). The more pointed cutter really makes a difference! Comparing the original detailer (left) and the new micro detailer- I was pretty proud of myself- Until- I had never worked with any other ebony. The piano keys were very old so maybe that caused them to be brittle. In other exciting news, a turning club near Lancaster wants me to put on a demonstration for their group! I am really thrilled to be able to help them out. It's not until August but I've already started getting some stuff together. They want some spindle work as well as small bowls. For the spindle, I thought they might be interested in seeing how a seemingly square pattern turns into a Celtic knot. I have this blank prepared- Next, I'll get some of that flame box elder ready for a bowl. Safe turning

    Ornament Urchin

    This is an unusual ornament. The center part is a sea Urchin. We don't have many oceans here in the Denver area, so I had to look it up. It is one of those spiny things that looks like a ball with thousands of thorns sticking out. They come in many colors, but the shell inside isn't too colorful. I used it as it came.
  7. A day early and just a short one this week, sorry. Please, let us all extend our sympathy to @John Moody. His Mom passed away Tuesday. I know your prayers will be appreciated. @Ron Altier Has built some beautiful display stands for some of his ornaments. Please go to Ron's post and see what others have had to say- @Smallpatch has added awesome detail to the teapots he is building. Check out his continued progress- @Grandpadave52 posted a link to The Woodworker's Journal newsletter. The newsletter is asking for responses to interest in a new free woodturning newsletter. If they receive enough positive responses , we might have another resource for turning information. If you think you might be interested, here's the link- https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/topic/22552-woodworker-journal-ezine-feedback/ Speaking of woodturning resources, the Woodworkers Guild of America is offering a set of 3 DVDs on woodturning techniques by George Vondrisk. I have not seen these videos so I cannot say how much information they might offer. You can see more at their website- https://www.wwgoa.com/product/wood-turning-techniques-3-dvd-set/#utm_source=WWGOA&utm_medium=email&utm_term=70OFF&utm_content=C12701&vscid=C12701 Patriot member @Gene Howe alerted me to an article in the most recent Popular Woodworking e-magazine. Gene said the article was about using a toilet plunger as a jam chuck. I do not subscribe to Popular Woodworking and couldn't locate the article online. If you subscribe to the magazine, check out the article it might just be something you can use. Safe turning

    Dressed Up Ornament

    I had some Yellow hart left from another piece. I saw a bird in my trinket box along with a few other goodies and I thought "What if" . Here are the results

    Mushroom Ornament?

    I glued together a few odd pieces and turned them down. Much to my surprise it came out with mushrooms on it. Two right side up and two upside down Its only 2" high.
  10. I know from my earlier attempts to resize a picture with my mac, it is difficult to do when I used to be a windows guy. Anyway, this is my latest ornament and it features the unknown dark wood I am allergic to and some Osage Orange, yellow hart too. If it is still too big, I'll just live with it.

    Still Tinkering With Color

    I wanted to try using latex paint to fade from one tint to another. I used the multi color ply and some maple. I kept tinkering until I liked the effect and sprayed it with poly. The one thing that is missing is the wood look, but I guess if I turned it, it still counts.

    Scrap Wood Again

    I've been the scrap pile again, experimenting with wood and acrylic glitter. The ball is thin pieces of Yellow Hart and Bubinga (I think). The shaft is plain ole pine. I painted the pine and I layered the glitter in thick layers in the crease and allowed to dry overnight, then repeated with the glitter. It came out OK and I think I may have an effect I'll use in the future
  13. No turning for me this past week. I've started a gun rack for a friend. It is coming along slowly. @Cliff just posted a topic for preventing wood from splitting/cracking/checking. This idea is new to me. See what Clif had to say. Maybe you have another method. If so, we'd love to have you tell us about it! Cliff also posted a link to an excellent safety article from the American Woodturner magazine. We all like to think we are working safely but this article really drives home the quality of some of the safety device we are using. Here's Cliff's post- The article is linked from there. Please read her story. @Ron Altier has created another awesome ornament. The amazing part is that this came from his scrap box. It is always exciting to see what lathe turning can do to a glue-up Ron's post is here- I think we all are proud of the things we make. Most of us have a way of marking our pieces with some sort of identifier. It might be a signature with a sharpie, a branded logo or even a special decal. Recently, Mike Peace did a short video exploring these various methods. I've always used a sharpie but over the years it tends to fade- especially on items that have a mineral oil finish. The signature on my original rolling pin, that Mimi uses, has faded into obscurity. Also, sharpies will bleed when the top coat is shellac. Many years ago I traded a rolling pin for a coffee scoop from Ruth Niles. She uses a handheld engraver to sign here work. Much longer lasting! What method do you all use??? There probably won't be much sleep here tonight. Today we picked up this- His name is Dudley and he is an 8 weeks old Basset hound. He slept most of the 2 hour trip back from the breeders and has been exploring his new home ever since. I think his ears are as long as he is. Since Quigley passed away in October, the house has been really empty. I'm sure that's about to change! Safe turning

    I've Been In The Scraps Again

    I hate to toss scraps of exotic wood and usually find some use for it. I just kept goofing with the pieces and glueing. I ended out with that block that I turned to what you see

    Experimenting With Epoxy

    I got some ideas about using 5 minute epoxy and glitter. I made some mistakes, but learned a lot in the process. You can see the upper ring. It looked really good until I tried something else to smooth it. I think I am going to try again, I have a couple more things I want to try

    angel ornament

    One of my angel ornaments got damaged and I promised to make another one. This one I made smaller, about 3" and made more use of add ons.

    NEW ORNAMENT 2

    This one required some glue up. And then some more. The piece on the bottom is acrylic and has some gold sparkles in it. I thought about making the bottom spindle much smaller, but my wife liked it just as it is. She gave her ideas as I worked on it and she likes it. After 50 years, happy wife, happy life.

    Acrylic ornament problems

    I ordered a piece of clear acrylic. Turning was a big challenge. The piece I used had a low melting point and it would heat and semi melt. This created melt smudges, not to mention melt frustration. I kept trying different turning tools and speeds. It wasn't easy. You can see the results. If I learned one thing.................... it is not to turn much of that stuff or get a harder clear acrylic.

    New ornament

    I started this one a few weeks ago and got sidetracked on other projects. I like to embellish the wood color with contrasting woods and ornamental things. It is not as large as it appears and is about 5" total length. Another Christmas gift

    Christmas Ornament Challenge.

    Every year a couple popular youtube authors, Carl Jacobson and Allen Stratton, sponsor a Christmas ornament challenge. They are primarily wood turners but the challenge is open to anyone who cares to enter. It's how I got my start on youtube. An entry doesn't have to be a video, it can be a slideshow, just something to show you actually made the ornament. Remember, the entry can be anything from a turning, to a carving, to scroll sawing, or whatever. There ARE some nice prizes, some of which are from EWT. Check it out, it's fun and even if you don't enter it's a great way to get ideas for Christmas ornaments. Christmas ornament challenge 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 when you think things are going good, you get in a hurry, or don't get enough glue somewhere, or just get stupid, etc. etc. It happens to all of us I imagine. Sometimes you might even drop something and step on it..sigh. Just for the record, this picture really was taken in the cutting room Steve

    New ornament

    I had so many problems with this one that I never thought I'd finish it. After something went bad, I'd put it on the bench and walk away. After starting another project I'd pass by and finally got an idea of how to fix or get around the ugly. Its not as long as it looks, maybe 6.5"

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

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.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

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.

Education

Logging

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.
