  1. Some of the "old timers" here will remember I had to be away from turning for an extended period. When things kind of returned to normal I had lost some of my motivation to be in the shop. Other interests, family time, and if I'm being honest, laziness, kept me idle. Finally decided I need to get productive again and this is my first serious turning for fun in a long while. Happily and surprisingly, I wasn't as rusty as I feared, that means I still remember how to sand! Anyway, here is my bowl, maple, about 12"X3". I love maple, sometimes the grain is smooth and creamy but fairly plain and so
  2. Former co-worker asked if I would burn a wedding plaque. Her wife-to-be had a piece of wood that had special meaning to her. I believe her father was going to do something for her years ago - but passed before he could do anything - thus the special meaning for her. Initial request was to simply put name and wedding date on plaque - if you know me I don't do simple very well - LOL. With their approval I went on to design several layouts and let them pick the one they liked - this is what we agreed on! Congratulations Tina and Stephanie! This was the initial
  3. First of all, who decided "Pyrography" would be a good name for wood burning. I can't even spell it, at least as far as the spell checker is concerned. Anyway I have been futzing around in the basement shop supposedly cleaning and reorganizing, well, at least until something to play with catches my attention. I came across a battery charger I was given for parts because it didn't work and I thought someday maybe I could use it to build a wood burning machine. Well that day or I should say days finally came. I opened it up and found the transformer still worked and that is the heart of the
  4. And I didn't even do it Hope this works In case it doesn't I posted the pictures. This bowl was done by a guy who has been following my youtube channel. He was really taken by the "basketbowl" video and wanted to do his own version. I think he knocked it out of the park. A little different interpretation than what I did but outstanding in every regard. Steve
  5. Merry Christmas! Posting a little early as tomorrow will be hectic, to say the least! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald showed us his display and setup for the craft shows. Just look at the varied items he has made! No wonder they sell so quickly! There are more images in his post- From last week's Wednesdays post, there was some comments about turning bowls. @Gerald added some great information and links in response to the comments. Thanks, Gerald, for jumping in on this! @HandyDan created some awesome inside out orn
  6. 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. Read more... In addition to Mrs. Irish's extensive line of informational products for sale, she also gives back to the crafts community by offering free plans and patterns such as this carving relief tutorial. https://www.lsirish.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Your-First-Carving-by-LS-Irish.pdf
  7. My latest woven basket illusion, a ceremonial basket design that I call Navajo Rain Cross. The cross symbol can also be found on Navajo rugs and pottery and is often used to represent Spider Woman, the first Navajo deity. The basket is twelve inches in diameter and the wood is maple. Beading, pyrography and ink were used to create the basket illusion. It was donated to the SWAT 2019 Symposium and selected as an auction item.
  8. So, I'm new to the site but I figured out that there is this nifty little blog feature. I am a pyrographer. I burn designs into wood. It's amazing how relaxing it can be to create something so beautiful from something so potentially chaotic. Currently my works have been patriotic or pagan in genre. Eventually, as I gain more skill, I will branch into others as well. I am more than happy to help answer any questions, to help you find the tools, etc.
  9. Its not much (and its missing the door...) but its mine. I included my heater and dog butt LOL
  10. Soldiers Cross burned onto Balsa (?) wood plaque, acrylic paint for flag.
  11. The local art council sponsors a non juried show every year for local artisans. It's a small show but it's still fun to enter. This year, I entered three pieces, ones you've all seen before. Two of them got recognition so I'm very happy about that.
  12. Hope I'm not wearing this out. Couldn't find an off the shelf stand to display the maple rocks bowl. They were either too light weight or hid too much of the bottom. I had an idea in mind but just wasn't happy with what I was doing. Spied a piece of gnarly cherry in my wood pile and started grinding on it. Here is the result. This is the piece of cherry, it's hard to tell from the picture but the bowl will sit in the little depression and it really looks pretty nice.
  13. Just finished this morning. I will say that I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. The rim is always a challenge for me as I'm never quite sure what to do with it. I had originally planned a herringbone pattern but nothing I drew looked right to me. It's about 12" diameter and not quite 5" deep. I'm sure I've posted this already but the design on the bottom is called "phicops in a circle" It's a zentangle pattern and the original author is Brad Harms-CZT Steve
  14. A great week here for the Patriot Woodturners. Just today, @Steve Krumanaker posted his gorgeous, finished "Maple Rocks" bowl- Steve posted more information and images here- @Smallpatch is making more progress on his teapots. He posted his updated progress- @Steve Krumanaker is preparing to give a demo to the turning club, of which he is a member. Steve pointed out how much work it is to create/give a successful demonstration. When properly done, the audience
  15. This is supposed to look like a rock wall or rocks in a bed of mortar. My wife says she likes it but doesn't think of rocks when she sees it. What do you see? what can I do to make it look more like a rock wall? Appreciate any and all thoughts, comments, or ideas. Oh yea, it's a work in progress. Actually, a try piece before I do this on a larger form. Honest opinions please. Steve
  16. I've been wanting to add some color to some of my turnings and posted a little about that earlier. At the time I was working on another decorative platter and have just put the sealer coat on it. Probably should've waited and taken better pictures but I wanted to share and got impatient. The platter is soft maple, turned to about 1/8" thick and about 12" diameter. My original thought for the center motif was to use water color paint. After several practice pieces I just wasn't getting the "pop" I was after and decided to use aniline dye. It is definitely a more robust c
  17. Just finished another decorative platter. This one is 12" diameter and 1/8" thick. It is basically the same pattern as before but drawn a little differently and it shows a spline much better. This really is the effect I've been trying to get and I'm very happy with this one. The rose was drawn in Inscape and engraved with my little laser. The shading on the rose was done by hand and I've got a lot to learn about all that.
  18. To be honest I'm not sure whether to call this a plate, saucer, or maybe even a dish. At any rate I'm going to start at the beginning and show the first picture again. Basically just a series of triangles from this side. There is a pattern but it's not easy to make out. Just as an aside, my wife liked it this way very much. What I didn't show you was the pattern I had drawn on the other side. This picture is
  19. The boss asked me if I could make her an egg tea light in time for Easter. So, I took a break from the dippers and did this over the last few days. Overall I'm happy with it, the narrow end is a little fat but not to bad and she loves it so that's ok. It was my thought to put "He is risen" or just "Risen" on the back but just couldn't make it look right to me eye. It was also my original thought to stipple the "halos" but I'm so glad I waited as I like them the way they are.
