  1. So of course with it being the 1st of the month bill pay day for myself and many others. I was out running errands. On my way back and to the parks management office to drop off my rent check I happen to spot tree cutters working and removing trees. Before I dropped the check off I asked if I could get a couple of log rounds and they said yes. I asked for a smaller diameter sized they hacked up a couple branch sized pieces for me by the time I drove back through sitting and waiting for me to grab. So I guess it paid to drop off my rent check this morning LOL I got lucky. So these will mak
  2. Some up coming projects on the list. One of the neighbors I just made a deal with on some trimmings wound up coming through this afternoon so this should be interesting wood to work with. The smaller chunks is Cherry wood I believe and the larger piece is Plum wood so that should be an interesting piece to turn. Fortunately I don't think I'll have to do too much work with it on the band saw and I should be able to turn it down to a nice bowl as it is with out too much work into it. So any thoughts on these. Nice thing was he only charged me about 20 bucks for everything. Probably bringi
  3. Since I retired 3-1/2 yrs. ago I have been setting woodworking goals for myself. Goals may include taking a class, learning a new technic, completing a certain project, learning different tools with the computer, etc. This yr. my goal was to have better organization in my shop and have better dust collection. Boy, did I fail. I did little organizing my shop and only just started on the dust collection. I enjoy designing wood working tools for my use. I started building a router cabinet in Nov. 2018 and it still is not done. I wanted the cabinet to have a unique look, be able t
  4. @Gerald reminded me of an additional sale at Woodcraft- Click on the image for the link to Woodcraft sale pages
  5. Our site sponsor, Woodcraft, is having a clearance sale. Lots of great turning supplies for Christmas projects as well as other awesome stuff. https://www.woodcraft.com/categories/clearance?trk_msg=LBL5GCMLMLA457FTGEUL9N5PSO&trk_contact=QNSFAEQ45HFA1IHE09ORJKR45S&trk_sid=8QC3REUTE75ECCOSK66L59JQKC&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=September+Clearance+Items&utm_campaign=Clearance+Stuff+Must+Go
  6. Late start, been under the weather, a bit..... Got bored a bit...needed to resaw a few parts, or at least start a few. Had 10 blanks...tossed out one, too many defects..Tablesaw to get the others the same width....after ripping one edge straight....made a mess doing that There goes the spotless floor....reset the fence, to allow a zero clearance overlay....and set about deadcenter for the stock... About 3/8" between the fence and the blade....then ran the blanks through....bad planning, blade didn't reach to the 1/2 halfway point. We have ways...
  7. I hope all of you are doing good! I have been having a lot of issues with motivation and finding something constructive to do. Without that, there isn’t much sense in hanging around here. I have missed you all though. Anyhow, I do have a few things that I want to try and get done this week(end). a few bottle stoppers one of which I may have to Re-drill and Re-glue, because the metal is looking a bit proud. I believe it to be spalted maple. the little pieces are pendants that are needing completed. One is a odd color acrylic and the other I believe to be Rosew
  8. I’m only starting this post because we LIKE pictures. I tried another project,making a napkin holder for the future D-I-L. Again, lots of time on the strip sander, and every time I look at it I see more that needs to be done. I DETEST changing blades on the saw. I apparently tightened too much the first day I used it, because I had to file the end of the blade holding screw, it kept pulling out. I’m tone deaf so that high C thing, yeah that ain’t working for me. I did the last piece after not tightening the blade so much, and there weren’t too many issues. I was thinking about staining it, bu
  9. It take a few minutes to watch, but it is amazing the skill and engineering that went into these projects
  10. What's happening It's starting to feel like our life is settling down to a dull roar, and the suggestions and projects our members here have suggested are starting to come back to the top of our priority list, we need to move forward on these suggestions and seriously consider them as add-ons into our community. Below please see a list of pending projects as submitted by you for our consideration.

  11. While transferring the links on our old website came across this site . Lots of good stuff in this one place. Around The Woods
  12. So I do not think I will ever be a master in any one type of woodworking. I enjoy the craft of it. Meaning there are far too many things and ideas I have to commit to anyone type. My Uncle is a master craftsman in doing intarsia. He can make such beautiful things. I am more like a rabid squirrel with adhd.I see something I like and have to figure it out how to make it. Perhaps I am simply in love with woodworking. The smell of it, the creation of it. My mind is always thinking of new thing to make not just in woodworking but many other things as well. Sometimes I get an idea In my head and I
  13. I'm guessing that most of the members are 50+ to late 70's in age. And our bodies & gray matter are slowly slipping away. And that the kids have started their own families & "gifted" us with grand kids. So--since we are in the twilight of our years and the grand kids are mostly on the computer & probably showing zero interest in woodworking I was just musing if any of us have prearranged gifts for the future unborn grand kids & great grand kids? Something that you have cut out & either built or put the pieces unassembled aside for them? Something from
  14. Our Patriot turners were really active this past week with more projects, questions and ideas! @Ron Altier's wife got him a really nice turner's smock. I'm pretty sure the other turners were jealous considering the ribbing he took. I think it will provide great protection from flying chips (or sparks)! Some of the good natured comments are at- Ron also posted a neat little "chip deflector" that he made. The simple design lends itself to virtually any tool manufacturer. Ron explains how he made this in his p
  15. While @Cliff and I are sharing the beach in the sunny Antilles, I thought I'd get a head start on today's post. @Cliff has his vacuum chuck rig set up and running. There are lots of questions and comments about how he made this. Cliff shares his procedures in his post- @Steve Krumanaker posted images of his second "cryptex". Steve's pictures show some of the internal workings of this clever little device! @PostalTom asked a question about the usefulness of a lathe that can be operated in the rever
  16. 2018! Seem like just a couple of months ago I was starting up computers hoping they would function after the Y2K Bug scare! @PostalTom showed us a sweet bowl he made for his daughter. It is made from poplar! Check out his description here- @Steve Krumanaker turned an awesome natural edge walnut bowl but it was not without its' problems- Here's Steve's explanation of what happened- @Ksvet06 asked a question about searching the turning forum for specific information. Gang, this just reinforces the
  17. Merry Fishmus to one and all!!! Note: I found this the other day in my "table top photography" folder from years ago.
  18. Great News! We have gone over our goal for the Gold Star Family Christmas Drive! If you haven't already donated, don't let the fact that we reached our goal stop you. 9 Days left to do what your heart tells you. More donations equals more presents for two little kids! Just a friendly reminder, please continue to add tags to any new post you start. It makes searches more accurate for anyone wishing to find information. I have reviewed all of the topics here in the Turner's Forum and added tags where they were missing. If you feel I modified one of your topics incorrectly, please let
  19. I seem to have a thing for "cordless" drills.... All but one of the eggbeaters... While cleaning the shop a bit, getting ready for the next projects, found a few other items.. Things seem to come in pairs around here...happens when I can't find the first one... Also set out most of the clear Poplar I have left.... Kicked a few braces out of the "overhead til" and stashed all but one of the eggbeaters.. As this No. 104 Millers falls wouldn't fit in the slots....handle was rattling for a reason. What is left of the push drills.
  20. Our Patriot turners have been working overtime this week creating some fantastic projects and starting some interesting conversations!! @Steve Krumanaker Posted some information on a Christmas Tree Ornament Challenge. He gave us a link to this video that has the particulars- Here is his original post- Steve also confided he is looking forward to his Woodturners club meeting. Their special guest is Cindy Drozda. I confess I was not familiar with her work. Her is a link to her site. She is impressive! http://cindydrozda.com/
