  1. We are about half way through the Patriot Raffle period but we are only about 64% of our site goal 😥. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, Please head over to this post and take a chance on one of the wonderful prizes- Major thunderstorm passed thru and another on its' heels. Home the UPS holds up! Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan posted a free wood score he made! Looks like it could be cherry or maybe even walnut. What do you think?? Dan has also been busy in the shop turning pens- He creates these beauties out of inexpensive, bought pens. @Gerald posted his gorgeous hollow form turned from Live Oak. Gerald discusses his turning and it color in his post Gerald also posted a bowl he made using the ringmaster system- See what our turners had to say about this gorgeous piece- Our own @Steve Krumanaker received a well deserved honor recently. His maple "Rock" bowl was given the "Judges Award" at a show presented by a local art council. We all know Steve has awesome talent and now his community does, too. More images in Steve's post- What’s Coming Up- I had the very pleasurable experience of demonstrating Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) to the Lancaster Woodturners. They are participating in the Mid Atlantic Woodturning Symposium, September 28-30, in Lancaster PA. More information is available at their site- http://www.mawts.com/ . From The Internet- Rick Turns has the July list of YouTube turning videos ready- Mike Peace added another sanding video. He describes additional techniques non-spindle pieces Along those lines, last week I mentioned using Abranet sanding screen. I found a website that has a similar product and not as expensive. These folks carry a wide variety of turning accessories- https://woodturnerswonders.com/ Everything Else- Several weeks ago we featured a project finish called "water droplets". The latest issue of American Woodturner magazine (August 2018) has a How-To for doing that finish. As it is a copyrighted article, I won't put it here but you may be able to get a copy of the magazine to see additional information about this technique. I finally finished up the little mixed media turning. It didn't come out like the picture I had in my head- but then my turnings rarely do! The base is a piece of walnut. Overall height is about 5" and the "glass" is about 1.25" in diameter at the top. Finished with wipe on poly. I call it "Half Full"- Safe turning

    More Pens

    I haven't been doing much in the shop since it has been so nice outside. I did make another batch of pens using the Zebra Pens as a host and reworking them to receive a wooden cover. I did 36 of them and plan on taking them to the family reunion and give them to my cousins. Last year I gave them the desk pens I make and made sure everyone got one even those who were not there. This year only the cousins that are there will get them. Sadly the reunion is the same day as the TPW gathering.

    Wooden Pens/Pencils

    So i'm pondering getting into making turned pens/pencils. i have a lathe, but i think it's a little big for pens, and yesterday I got the Penn State Industries catalog, that features all manner of turned pens/pencils stuff you need to make these things. i'd mostly give them away, although if you offered me some $$, i'd say yes. so what should i look for/avoid in this? they have a little starter kit, including a little lathe just for pens, that looks like a good place to start and learn how to do this. i appears that there are standard sizes/dimensions for size of pen, size of hole in the middle. any advice or warnings? thanks.

    Tubes Coming Out.

    I've been making pens lately, and up to now, no real problems. The last three blanks I tried to square up the blank ends with the brass tubes, the tubes come back out of the blanks. I'm using a barrel trimming kit from PSI. The first blank this happened to me on, I glued the tube in with medium CA super glue. The next two, I used 5 minute epoxy. Both times, I let the items set for several hours before trying to square things up. I have a couple of theories. 1. I am trying to use stabilized maple burl blanks from PSI. Is it possible that the hardened maple blanks are drilling too smooth to grab the glue or epoxy? The pens I have made up to now have been with regular hardwood blanks, not stabilized or anything like that, and I haven't had these problems. 2. As per instructions, I am roughing up the outside of the brass tubes with some sandpaper. Maybe I am too aggressive with the sandpaper and taking too much off the tubes. Any thoughts?

    Need Help With Pen Kits

    About 15 yrs ago, I bought about 100 pen kits, all different kinds, from Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. I finally got around to wanting to make some pens, but I do not have instructions for any of them. Has anybody heard from this company lately? I can't find them on the internet, and Wood Craft Supplies has not wanted to help me with the problem. The particular kit I am trying to work with is WCO 280 Provential Twist Pen. Anybody got any instructions or know where I can obtain them? There is a long list of kits on Woodcraft.com, but they do not show pics unless you click on each one, and it looks like there must be 100 different kits! Thanks!

    12 Cent Pen Turning

    Decided to make a Captain Eddie 12 Cent Pen for each of my cousins. Every August we have a reunion so I have plenty of time to get them done. I did manage to turn and apply finish to 20 of them so far. Did I say I have 46 cousins? I have a bunch of Brazilian flooring cut offs and I am using some for these. I also turn the brass nibs for them on my Unimat hobby lathe. The ink cartridge is from a standard Bic pen so here are a couple that are done and the misc parts. I also make stands/bases for them. I have them to do yet too.

    Pen making profit

    I have never made a pen and have only seen them on line or sometimes at sales. I would think their sales would be very limited. People use their phones for nearly everything that the pen was used for. Notes, reminders, lists, voice memos and letters have been replaced by email and text. You get free pens at the dentist and in most businesses. The biggest problem with me and pens.................I can't keep them, always lose them. Can pen makers make a profit, considering supplies and paying themselves minimum wage labor cost?

    First Time Pens

    That tool auction score I got a while back had over forty pen kits. It also had the mandrels and bushings. What it didn't have was the drill bit to square the ends. There were eight of the circuit board kits which come with the tube cast into the blank. I put the blanks on the wood lathe and turned them round as I could get them. Then I moved them to the hobby lathe and got them perfectly round. After that I chucked the blank in the hobby lathe without the mandrel and cross cut the ends to square them up. I then moved them back to the wood lathe on the mandrel and turned them and polished them. I also got a nice pen press in the deal so used it to assemble the pens. I did two of them which are the first pens I turned using a kit. I have done the Captan Eddie pens and but never any from a kit.

    Another day of turning

    Got 3 more pens done today. And I made a stand for them also. Not done with the stand yet but I see with the next one I have to do some modifications to it.It's just not quite deep enough to angle the pen enough.

    Today's pens

    A number of my pens will be heading to South Africa next week so I needed to turn some replacements. 3 of these are turned from spectraply. I was hoping to see some of the color bleeding that Ron had but I think the camo color doesn't make this apparent. Hopefully in a month or two I'll be able to buy some brighter colors to try.

    Humbled

    I got a call a few weeks back from the Mayor or our town. He wanted three maple pens and a two of my small cutting boards. So I delivered them to his office last Thursday morning along with three display boxes I got from Woodcraft to put the Maple pens in. I just didn't have time to make the boxes and these looked so good with the pens. He and the Governor or Alabama along with the Secretary of Commence are on a recruiting trip to South Korea and Japan to talk to several businesses about locating in our area. My items were taken to present as gifts to those dignitaries they will be meeting with. Wow. Quite the honor to have my items selected to go along on this trip and very humbling. Many of things could have been selected from the many artist in our area so I humbled and honored to have my items selected. Here is our Mayor with me presenting him the items.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community.
