  1. 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.
  2. Its not much (and its missing the door...) but its mine. I included my heater and dog butt LOL
  3. Soldiers Cross burned onto Balsa (?) wood plaque, acrylic paint for flag.
  4. 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. Just wanted to share my moment! Thanks for looking. Steve
  5. 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. I show it to my wife, she said she liked but it was a shame no one would see the underside because it was also very pretty. On a lark, I flipped the piece over and with just a little surgery the bowl sits very nicely there as well. Not especially happy with how the pictures show the bowl and stand but I hope you get the idea. From the underside of the bowl. For what it's worth. Wife told me if I have any more of those pieces I might to just make some of these to stand on their own. Steve
  6. 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
  7. 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 gets information in an enjoyable, fluid manner. But, demos don't just happen by accident. Planning, preparation and practice are required to pull off a demonstration without a hitch. Just some of what Steve did getting ready- He explains more, here- By the way, those seed starter makers are a great gift. I made some a few years ago for relatives. Mike Peace added a YouTube video on selecting lathe chuck jaws. Specialized jaws can really be an asset for different turning projects. I wish Mike would have done the Easy Wood Chuck jaws. Their add/remove mechanism is unique. Capt. Eddie continues to produce videos. He recently added one on finishing a turning. He demonstrates an inertia sander which is really handy for spindle and bowl sanding. He has a hardware kit available for making these sanders. Rick Turns has made available the YouTube listing of woodturning videos for May. If you enjoy finding an all-in-one place reference, please give Rick a quick thanks on his YouTube channel. The Woodturning OnLine Newsletter came this week. There are several interesting projects. A video by Todd Raines demonstrates how he turns flags. He uses a neat method to make multiple, exact copies. There are several nice jigs that can be applied to just about any lathe operation. Another project is making a fishing reel, by Mike Darlow- What's great about this project is that when you follow the link, you end up at the Woodcraft site. From there you can gain access to many of the articles/projects previously published in the Woodcraft magazine. A general list of topics is shown on the left side of the web page. https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/a-fishing-reel There is also an article on photographing projects. @Gerald created a super blog on photography, here on The Patriot Woodworker, and this article adds nicely to that. The article is written in Microsoft word (.doc) and is by John Lucas. http://nebula.wsimg.com/17b9a4c07da5b3c10dc5dfa5f30aa453?AccessKeyId=8E1EC0DC707F1FE36FCB&disposition=0&alloworigin=1 The entire Woodturning OnLine newsletter is at- http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php Safe turning
  8. 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
  9. 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 color. The sky, the tree, the animals, and the bottom are pyrography. The underside I was excited about doing this piece there are several things I really like about it. Even so, I'm just not sure it "works". Steve
  10. 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. Thanks for looking!! Steve
  11. 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 after all the piecing had been done. This is the underside of the bowl. This is the inside after piercing and having some of the pattern drawn in. I didn't feel I could lay out inside and out before doing the piercing so I did the outside, pierced, then drew the pattern to match the holes. It was a LOT more difficult than I thought it would be. Visualizing the pattern was difficult even though It's my pattern and I'm very familiar with it. Also, some of my cuts weren't exactly perpendicular to the surface and that changed things enough I had to fudge here and there to make it all work out(kind of). I have to say, it's amazing to me what a difference a few simple lines can make in how something looks. In this picture the pattern is drawn and burned in. I have begun to do the grain lines and shading. I keep telling myself I need to lose weight but I don't know how I would hold things to work on them if I did When looking at some of my other pieces some have remarked that I must have a lot of patience. I have to say, it's like therapy to me. Sitting on the patio, burning for a couple hours, and having 3 or 4 glasses of wine I'm very relaxed. Much like this post, I did eventually get it done, took me the better part of three days to see if my idea would work. All in all, I'm happy with how it turned out though there are lots of little issues on the inside. It was a great learning experience and the next one will be better. Thanks for looking!! Steve
  12. 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. The egg itself is maple and the base is spalted beech. Thanks for looking!! Steve

  18. I have a Razortip SK burner I wouls like to sell. It comes with 4 pens, two of which haven the interchangeable heads, a standard and heavy duty cord, several tips, and a cigar box for all the odds and end (minus the burner, it won't fit). The cost of the burner is $119 without pens. The pens would cost you $27 -$29 each. I am selling the whole lot for $150 plus shipping. Everything should fit in a large flat rate nicely. So shipping will be around $15 or so.
  19. Probably should've spent the day working on my demo but this was calling to me to finish it. I learned a lot on this one and hopefully the next one will be better. Sometimes my work really does look better in the dark Steve
  20. 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
  21. Did this one a few months ago. There are four zentangle patterns on this bowl, the main basket weave pattern is called "W2". I don't know why, that's just what it's called. The bowl itself is maple, turned to finish green and is about 3/8" thick. Don't know if you can tell from the pictures but it has a nice warp to it. Steve
  22. New to this board and have introduced myself on the newbie forum. I like to turn everything from tops to ornaments to bowls. Not a professional but do sell a piece now and then, mostly small stuff. Here is smattering of some of my recent turnings. Wood migrants, I apologize, you will already have suffered through most of these. Thanks for looking! Steve
