  1. It's been computer madness here so far this week! I think I need a vacation!!! Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB used a glued up poplar blank for a pepper grinder. Looks really nice. He shows us some progression shots in this post- Andrew has found a new source for turning blanks. He gives us the low down in this post- @RustyFN gave us an update on the platter he started last week- Check Rusty's post for additional pictures and the start to finish thread- Rusty has also been busy with his
  2. Thought I would try to turn something outboard. I took a 7x9x18 piece and cut it into two 3.5x9x18. Took one of those and cut it in half again and glued them together. I ended up wit a piece 1.75x18x18. I cut it round on my bandsaw. I put it on the lathe and evened out the bottom and outside. It turned very nice. No vibration.
  3. Lots happening with our turners this week... Our Patriot Turners- @FrederickH posted a project in the woodworking section. He is making a box for his lathe chuck/jaws. From all the comments and ideas, I thought maybe our turners would like to see what he made and all the other ideas form his post- You can see the build and how he finished the inside to hold his chuck- @Smallpatch showed us his in progress steady rest. Looks like it is going to be a nice one too- Jess' post contains images of his build, lots of commen
  4. 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!

  5. 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
  6. Had looked for a piece of live oak large enough to do a 15 inch plus platter quarter sawn for a long time . Well What I finally found a 19 inch tree and cut a blank next to the pith. Not quarter sawn like Mike Mahoney uses but close as it gets. By the way Mike cuts some huge timbers , maybe 4 foot diameter. Tree had been down maybe 60 days when I got to it. Then I cut the blank and did a first turn leaving the blank at 2 inch thick. I sealed all edges and toward the center with paraffin . After two weeks it developed some cracks so decided to finish turn. I started with the back and had
  7. 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-

    Wormy pecan

    Platter in wormy pecan. After putting rings on edges decided it needed something so I dyed the rings.
  11. I guess most of us are getting a little more shop time with the current health situations. Please stay home and away from crowds. Wash those hands and TURN OFF THE TV! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald put the finishing touches on the embellished platter he showed us recently- In this post, he describes what he did- @Masonsailor continues his work on his Lazy Susan tulip. Paul has prepared the location for it. Paul tells us about this space as well as showing us a beautiful chandelier he restored/modified-
  12. This is the second prototype for our church offering plates. No the will not be spaulted like this, only dry oak I have. Hope to do this in green wood but may have to resort to kiln dry oak like Mike Peace did. Hope to be able to have the final form 1/2 to 1 inch deeper . This piece is a little less than 2 deep. this piece has a small amount of curl do church will not get it
  13. Got time with my grandson on the lathe for the first time. We turned a platter together and the I textured and colored it. Used some pecan scraps. He had fun and we do a Pen tomorrow. After he left shop shop I did a test platter for finish test with wax on offering plates.
  14. Saturday morning turning on the back patio.... fun. Pretty piece of walnut 10" wide 2-1/2" deep. Happy with this one.
  15. This is a present for my sisters birthday #81. Thought the blank was curly but not so changed the color scheme. More later.
  16. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker turned a couple of gorgeous pieces. I particularly enjoyed this one- Steve discussed what he did in his post and shows us several views of each piece- @Gerald found a neat lamp that will work well for turners Gerald supplied the link, for the lamp, in his post. Check out the background of Gerald's images for his really great tool setup- I've never met Carl Jacobson but I do enjoy his videos and post some of them in the
  17. Relatives have been here this week not much shop time. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald Posted an offset platter he has turned. It's a beauty! Gerald talks about the size and finish in his post- Gerald also showed us a captive ring goblet he just completed. Captive rings are are fun to make but a pain to sand! Gerald describes his turning- Gerald mentioned Mike Peace's video on making the special tool for his turning. If you would like to create your own tool, here is the video- Gerald is ou
  18. Just finished this pecan platter from a crotch. Not very thick , maybe quarter inch. Tried Mahoney walnut oil for first time . This is an interesting utility finish. Does not look like it buffs out. Good for a delicate project and gives a flat finish, no shine ok maybe a little. Easy to apply.
  19. Though I would give a step by step on the dye for this platter. Turn the platter back and finish. Reverse and turn the rim leaving center. Now for the dye use dark color or black and sand that back. On this case violet. after sanding apply second color , red. Now after sanding with more emphasis toward the center and apply yellow. oh there is a groove on the outside of the color to define the color line. Then time for finish applied before turning the center and more layers of lacquer.
  20. "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 cr
  21. 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-

    Platter

    Beginning on a piece of Bradford pear I almost waited too long. This is a crotch piece so in addition to nice grain has feather . The got natural edge also. My be doing Clewes style dye on the rim. What do you think?
  23. Well the gifts for friends and relatives are finished- unless Mimi adds someone to the list. A little unusual this year in that just about everyone is getting something different.
  24. Clewes did not make it so we had our own turning two weeks ago. Finically got thru with the finish work. Dyed with yellow and royal blue in Chestnut stains alcohol base. Back is shellac sealed and then Watco. Rubbed out with Mcguiar's rubbing cod and polishing cod. Then Renaissance wax.
