  1. Wife has been using the newer version but I was still on the same version from before Columbus hit that rock. I honestly think this is the best program for the kind of wood working I do. Sometimes I need a certain size to fit a space no matter what the shape using Rapid Resizer I can get it done. Thanks guys for all your troubles trying to help. Actually it made me do more playing around with the puter and accidently I began starting by bringing up Rapid Resizer and not clicking on my favorites and go step by step for wife made her name for me in an arc to fit the space and I was determined to find something why I could not make my Rapid work for I did not know at the time she had used here lap top instead of my puter and finally found the difference.
  2. Missed last weeks post so this one will be have a little extra. Our Patriot Turners- @nevinc posted a couple of projects he has been working on. First, a neat little table item that would be useful in any kitchen- Nevin combined woodworking and turning to complete the project- He also posted a question and his method of storing sawdust from various species of wood he uses as fillers. He was wondering what storage method the rest of us use for storage. Check out his post and let him know your method- And, Nevin showed us some beautiful walnut bowls he had finished- He received lots of positive comments in his post- @Steve Krumanaker has been busy fulfilling orders to some of the artisans in his area. He has been working with one who sells "Bee Products" for whom he make honey dipper lids. Steve posted a couple of short videos on how he has upgraded his manufacturing process. Steve is also making drop spindles for another craftsperson. These are used in the process of turning wool into yarn. He developed a neat jig to create shop made dowels for part of the pieces. In this post, he explains why he made the parts instead of buying them- @Gerald added a project to our "Off The Lathe And Finished" thread. These beautiful ornaments got lots of great comments and a couple of questions as well. Head on over to the thread and check out more on these- Gerald was also kind enough to provide links to videos on sharpening. I must apologize for not recording who asked the question on sharpening. Gerald had entered the AAW August Turning Challenge and provided us with the link to the voting and winners- https://www.aawforum.org/community/threads/august-2023-turning-challenge-final-results.21511/ @KevTN Asked for help identifying a specific pattern for the rim of a platter. Our turners had several suggestions. If you can identify this patter, please help out Kevin- @RustyFN has a gorgeous spalted bowl on his lathe! What’s Coming Up- Cindy Drozda is live tomorrow- Thursday, October 12 at 2pm EDT. She will be discussing how do you protect your eyes, ears, and lungs in the workshop. For registration, follow this link- https://streamyard.com/watch/PsF54zh7XSVb For The Newbies- Kent Weakly's video on what tools are not suitable for bowl turning- Carl Jacobson makes an oak lidded box. Notice that Carl uses both traditional and carbide tools to complete the project- A simple bowl turning to use as a succulent planter from Craft Supplies USA From Tim Yoder on choosing your sandpaper Richard Raffan demonstrates how to make your turned bowls look really top notch by refining the bottom. Expand Your Horizons- Several articles from Kent Weakley on bowl finishes. https://turnawoodbowl.com/my-favorite-food-safe-wood-finish-waterproof-almost/?ck_subscriber_id=1577117793 https://turnawoodbowl.com/make-shellac-wood-bowl-finish/?ck_subscriber_id=1577117793 https://turnawoodbowl.com/spray-lacquer-illustrated-guide-equipment-system-set-up-technique/?ck_subscriber_id=1577117793 Jim Rodgers continues his series on hollowing- Alan Stratton posted this video on YouTube. It reminded me of a similar project that @Gerald had shown us sometime back- The Four Ways videos from the first of the month- Mike Peace- Richard Raffan- Sam Angelo- Tomislav Tomasic- New Turning Items- From Niles Bottle Stoppers- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/cocktail-muddler-set/ From Woodturners Wonders- Diamond wheels for both bench grinders and Tormek grinders- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/diamond-wheels?_kx=gV5SF2As_3IwtBi5TrpHVQM0F3UvGVbQKzhWGippDlk%3D.VJvU8R Everything Else- From Ron Brown's Newsletter- When you share the joys of your craft with someone who has never seen shavings fly off a fresh bowl blank or get to watch a spinning top appear in just a few minutes, you might change their world. A small pebble can create a world of ripples. Members of our woodworking club have attended county fairs, woodworking shows, and symposiums which always included live demonstrations. Why? Most people can’t visualize what we do. I’ve seen people become fascinated with turning after they made a simple maple or oak pen at one of these events. I’ve seen their entire family get interested and turning became their family hobby. They’ve planned family trips around turning shows and symposiums along with week-long hands-on learning at folk schools. I’ve witnessed folks buying their first mini lathe and accessories then go on to develop a lifelong passion for the smell of freshly milled lumber and the shavings from another bowl blank. The benefit to you of doing something like that is they bring their non-turning skill sets from their regular jobs, i.e. management, leadership, and organizational skills. Many have become club officers including President. One such fellow served three terms and on a personal note, became my dentist until he retired. We’ve seen lawyers, engineers, business executives, moms, teenagers, pastors, and doctors get the turning bug all because they saw a turning demonstration at a craft fair or other public event. I’ve told the story many times of how I attended a two-hour club demonstration in a cold dark basement one Saturday between Christmas and the New Year. Nick Cook made a top, a garden dibble, a honey dipper, a toothpick holder, and a mahogany plate plus some other things I don’t remember. One couple thought that was terrific and booked a day's instruction with Nick. Then they started a turning club, then I attended, then I got hooked. Now I make a great living inventing and offering turning accessories to the turning community worldwide. During the thirteen years I was on the Woodworking Show Circuit, I was able to demonstrate turning in front of over a million people. That’s a pretty good ripple! Thank you, Nick Cook. In order to cause the ripple, you have to toss the stone in the first place. I would encourage you to invite someone to a club meeting or over to your shop for an hour or two for coffee and to make some shavings. You never know how big that ripple might become Safe turning
  3. Does anyone know where I can borrow, beg, steal or buy a pattern/plan for a turkey tail fan display plaque? I have been asked to build one which is a simple project but have no idea of the optimal size dimensions and the configuration. I have never seen a turkey tail mount and am unsure how the tail is mounted in the plaque. Thanks Don R
  4. I'm always impressed by the grain patterns that result from wood choices you guys make. This article helped me understand a little better how you guys choose your blanks. Hope the link works. https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/cutting-bowl-blanks-from-a-tree/

  6. I just printed two different sizes of this guy, a ten and a twelve inch model. Don't know when or if I ever carve this guy but I got it in my pictures for when I get around to it. I do have the wood but these pecans been working the fool out of us. He sure won't look like this though. I like my indians with skin and hair and feathers!
  7. Recently, I was wanting to make a few templates to make a rocking dinosaur from a illustration I saw in a book (Jeff Miller, Children's Furniture Projects). The following is my approach to obtain full size templates. Danl 1) Scan illustration using home computer and file scan in JPG format. 2) Import JPG file into Sketchup. Position imported object into one of the standard views (front, back, top bottom, left, or right) 3) Draw over the the object you want to make a template for. Make each piece a component and make the entire dwg a component. 4) Hide original imported object. 5) Scale entire component to obtain desired size. 5) Using Sketchup, print 1:1 This method allow you to estore the master copy and to have thin object lines to use when sawing/sanding. I still need to tape the printed sheets together and adhere to template material. JPG imported into Sketchup. Drawing complete. Drawing printed 1:1 scale
  8. In Part #1, I mentioned that the pattern of the Celtic knot can be varied by how much wood is removed during the creation of the slots. Typically, I plow out a 3/8" wide slot and fill it with three inserts. That technique results in a pattern of knots that overlap- If the slot is cut, leaving a center slice of wood intact, and then placing an insert on each side; the pattern displays diamonds at the cross-over- Another subtle change in the pattern can be achieved by the sequence of the cuts related to the sides. I number each side of the blank during the layout procedure. Then when cutting the slots, I cut sides with the sequence 1, 3, 2, 4. Cutting the sides in a 1, 2, 3, 4 makes a slightly different pattern. So, that's how it's done! Once sanded, and the ends trimmed, a liberal application of mineral oil and they are ready to use.
  9. Trained as a Fine Artist at the University of Maryland, twelve of Lora Susan Irish’s pure breed dog oil paintings have been published as limited edition art prints. Her art has been featured on the front covers of “Doberman Quarterly” 1991, “Samoyed Quarterly” – all four issues of 1991, and “Shetland Sheepdog Quarterly” 1991 published by Hoflin Press.

  11. next will be my kind of carving also my favorite kind of woodworking. This is parts of three different patterns to come up with this size thingy.... Just finished scroll sawing the outside of this pattern. Its 1 1/2" maple and it sure does strain the saw. I think I will be inserting a few names somewhere in or on it.
  12. An older article but apparently still relevant when it comes to the Nicholson Pattern Makers Rasp's. I found this blog story at one of my favorite hand tool suppliers, I have purchased quiet a few tools from Tools For Working Wood, the last tool I purchased last year was an English Mortise chisel made by Ray Isles. Tools For Working Wood is a great resource in their blogs, and their tools for purchase, just thought I'd share the blog on their decision to not sale Nicholson Rasps any longer and why.

  13. Well I’m back after a mini vacation and dealing with transportation issues (Blew the rings in my van and getting an old truck road worthy) So,. here are some of the techniques I used on the snowflake project: 1. I only had one paper pattern for each size so I optimized the material and cut a single snowflake of each size. 2. Using the cut snowflakes as templates I laid out the rest of the flakes to optimize the material (keeping in mind how many of each size the customer wanted). 3. I started by using three sawhorses to support the 4 x 8 sheet of plywood, this allows two sawhorses to support the majority of the plywood while the third supports the opposite side of the cut. I shifted the position of the third sawhorse as necessary. 4. I separated each flake from the full sheet first, then went on to cut all of the flakes. 5. While separating the flakes I cut the outside “flats”. I could have just cut between each flake, but that would have added to the cut time, wear and tear on the saws and the number of blades that I used. 6. I used appropriate supports for each size of flake; for the two larger sizes I used two sawhorses, cutting in between the horses for maximum support (rotating the piece as needed). For the smaller flakes I used the workmate with the clamp jaws extended as needed. 7. As for the actual cutting I used a scroll blade exclusively. I can cut straight with it when needed and changing back and forth is a pain. The HF and Bosch blades held up pretty close to each other (HF was U blades Bosch was the T blades, HF did not have mutipacks of T scroll blades)(HF scroll blades were 12 tpi, the Bosch 20 TPI so the Bosch blades did cut smoother). 8. While cutting the patterns I used some scrollsaw tricks, When cutting a sharp inside corner I would cut to the line and then widen the kerf until I could turn the blade without stressing it. When cutting a sharp outside corner I would cut through the waste area to the line, follow it to an inside corner I had previously cut ( allowing the waste to be removed ) then cutting the other side of the outside corner (now exposed). I’m not sure how clear this is, I was working alone. Next time I’ll try to take pictures or video. I rarely think of that while I’m cutting.
