  1. I wanted to make some different ornaments and my wife wanted me to use Purple Hart. 1.The one on the left is Purple Hart and Yellow Hart with some embellishment. 2.The one in the Center is all Purple Hart, however I used friction burning to get different shades. you have to look closely, the picture doesn't show it very well 3. This was an experiment with coarse grained White Oak. I used Red latex paint, wipe off after a few minutes and sand. Repeat............I like it. The picture as shown here is an extreme close up and you see many things that no
  2. Our Adopted Family Christmas Project was a complete success. Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to the raffle winners! Our Patriot Turners- Lots of great projects and discussions this past week! @Ron Altier started us off with a sweet little birdhouse ornament! Ron tells us a little about this turning and the little additions he added- @Steve Krumanaker embellishes some of his orders with an inexpensive laser. Steve shows us just how versatile one of these machines can be- Check out the c
  3. Just finished this one. Originally it was just going to be a plain birdhouse. My wife saw it and showed me some small Christmas items that she had. She got a box of them at a garage sale years ago. See photo. I added a few and this is the result. She likes it...........I musta done right
  4. Made some of these last year and had an order for two this year. Sold them for $25.00 each. The girl was buying one for her sister and niece and said they were the most beautiful ornaments she has seen. I thought she should have one so I gave her one as a gift. I made one and gave her that one and the two I had here for me. I just made these two to replace mine.
  5. I have been making Christmas ornaments for a dozen or more years as a give away item. This year i made icicles and they were also good for a lot of skew practice. They will definitely get to a family and a few friends but because of Covid most will not be given out until hopefully next year. Made 60 of these and used 5/8" birch dowel rod for the blanks. Here is my tree with all those that I made over the years.
  6. I will tell you up front. I stole this idea. I belong to a turning group on mewe and one of the turners there posted pictures of some birdhouse ornaments. They were stunning with a really different roof and a superb glossy finish. Anyway, I knew I had to try and figure out the look. It took me a couple attempts before I realized, the roof is nothing more than a very small natural edge bowl, almost. This is my first successful attempt, rough, with no finish but it's definitely a look I'll explore further, probably next Christmas season, good Lord willing. The body is from a small sycamore limb
  7. Yesterday it was chilly, but the sun was shining in my shop (garage) I cleaned up the place and in the process, I picked up every scrap piece of exotic wood I could find. Some are left overs, some are old projects I stopped and the rest are odds and ends. I will make something out of most of it and I hope to get some more wood soon. I don't go out to shop much, but I do go when the crowd isn't there, very early in the morning on a week day. I go pick what I want and get out quickly. I can order wood delivered, but I want to see what I buy first. I have all my Christmas gifts made, so I think
  8. I had a very small perfect 4 sided angular scrap piece. (the bottom part) It laid in my scrap box for a long time and the more I looked over it the more I wanted to make an ornament out of it. I did turn the small centerpiece and cut the top angular piece. That top piece was a real challenge. The whole ornament isn't much more more than 4" long. I cut most angles on the table saw, using small clamps to secure it and cut safely. After all that it did come out nice, but a bit ugly and lacking Christmas colors. Maybe an ugly frozen ornament crystal Something a woodworker appreciates, not so much
  9. About a year ago I bought a piece of acrylic that was meant to be a bottle stopper or a beer tap handle. It laid in plain sight and I couldn't decide how to turn it, what shape, length, etc. I just kept turning it in my mind. The last few days I started turning it and then would stop and reimagine. It seemed that it would not make a nice ornament. I did finish it today and my wife don't care for it, but my granddaughter does. The pictures are with it turned 45 degrees.
  10. Added some little birds to a few of the birdhouse ornaments. They are quick and fun to turn but gluing them up and on is kind of tedius.
  11. Here it is December already. Time sure goes fast when you are quarantined- NOT!!! Christmas is fast approaching and we are determined to make our adopted family's Christmas one to remember. We are 60% towards our goal. If you haven't entered the raffle/donation yet, please don't wait! If you have already made your donation, we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier's been busy this past week turning a couple of gorgeous ornaments. Around here, Ron is considered the king of using scraps to create works of art. T
  12. I've been playing around with some aromatic Cedar again. I tried to put together some of the more colorful pieces to make it more eye appealing, its about 4 inches long. Cedar is very soft and easy to mess up. I was going to leave it unfinished so the smell would be in the air. However I decided against it because that smell only lasts a limited time and by next Christmas, it would be gone.
  13. Thought I was done making ornaments for the year but I had some special requests for a few more. So, 16 in total this batch. Had never put a hat on a birdhouse ornament before but I kind of like the look of them.
  14. Sorry this is so late this week but they're dropping like flies around here. If this keeps up, I'm gonna need a second funeral suit. OK folks, it's that time of year where we get to share our good fortune and make one very special family's Christmas the BEST ever. Our Operation Ward 57 project is off and running. Please see the information- Even though this runs until December 31, please try and get your donation in early so that shopping for the kids' Christmas can be done on time! Our Patriot Turners- We've had a lot of additional comments on
  15. Three more segmented ply birdhouse ornaments. Probably the last of these for a bit.
  16. I have made dozens of segmented plywood Christmas globes for ornaments but had never done a birdhouse ornament with segmented plywood. I like the idea but this one is a little clunky I think. Will have to explore this further!!
  17. These are all Indiana hardwoods, walnut, maple, spalted beech, and cherry. May even be a piece of ash in there.
  18. Sorry about the late post. Unavoidable. Our Patriot Turners- Please welcome back one of our original forum members @Steve Krumanaker. Steve's been away for a while but certainly hasn't lost his touch for beautiful work! Check out what our turners had to say about this fantastic maple bowl- @Gerald gave us a really nice explanation on how he turns wooden spoons. Check out some of his techniques and tools! Gerald's week wasn't all peaches and cream, He tells us about the ups and downs of dropping items on the
  19. 50 years ago, I started teaching at the local Vocational School. After retiring, I continued to substitute for another 17 years. This year I finally decided to officially retire. We'll see how it goes. Our Patriot Turners- Last week, @Artie posted about his new toys he won in our raffle and asked about any additional equipment he needed to get started. Tha post generated a lot of great ideas. But @Cliff added something very important about lathe speed and safety- From Cliff's post, I found this article- Yamaguchi_SafetyMatters.pdf @R
  20. Boy, we could use some rain in this part of Pennsylvania. Of course the upside is that the grass doesn't need mowing Lots happening this week with our turners! Our Patriot Turners- Both @FlGatorwood , @Artie and @Larry Cutlip received their raffle prizes and posted thanks to @Jim from Easy Wood Tools for their participation and supplying the Easy Wood Tools products! Aartie asked us for advice on additional turning equipment in his post. Check it out and see if you can think of anything else he might need- @Andrew is
  21. We have had a fantastic week here in the Turner's Forum! Questions, comments, tips, projects, the whole picnic lunch! Please remember we are just a few days away from wrapping up our annual fundraiser. We still need $64.99 to meet our goal. If you haven't made your donation, you are missing a chance at some awesome prizes! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald is making progress on the Live Oak platter he started back in June. See his addition to the original post to learn how he handle a warping problem. @Ron Altier created a
  22. 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.
  23. We are still about $400 short of our fundraising goal for this year- only 30 days left! Some great prizes available. Don't miss your chance to score big and be part of making Veteran's lives a little better. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier is our resident ornament designer. Ron experiments with a wide range of finishes. His current favorite is a U/V finish. Ron shows us just how versatile this finish can be- See this post for Ron's explanation- Ron goes on to show us some of the unique effects this finnish can produce-
  24. I don't have much exotic pieces left and keep going thru my odds and ends left in a box. I did find enough to make this and continue my experimenting with UV finish. First the wood wasn't in the greatest shape, so I used glitter in my finish and the band in the middle. Next I dipped the point at the bottom in the uv finish and placed it directly in the sun and Within 3 seconds, it hardened, giving the appearance of a dripping icicle. It don't dry hard, but remains semi flexible. I don't know how it ages yet. The piece is 3" high.
  25. What a week! Hope this Wednesday finds you all safe and healthy. June 1st started our annual site fundraiser/raffle. Our generous sponsors have kicked in some fantastic prizes. Please check the announceent- Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier used some spalted Maple to make another fantastic ornament! Ron continues to use this UV finish and it really looks like it does a fantastic job. Check Ron's post for his description of a "happy little accident" @Ron Altier also started a great discussion based on something th
