  1. Saw this pop up on E-Bay, today. Looks like it will sure beat trying to turn dowels one at a time on the lathe Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN posted another one of his beautiful segmented bowls. I really like how he made the bottom of it. Judging from all the positive comments, our turners were in agreement on this beauty. See more images in Rusty's post- @Gerald was turning a vase and found a small "treasure" within the wood. It really wasn't something he was happy about- These things wreak havoc on the t
  2. 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
  3. Hope all of our turners have heat and electricity. Looks like we are due for another dusting here in south central PA. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald spent some time cleaning up around his lathe and sorting out drawer contents. That's something I know needs done in my shop a sediment shared by our members. @Ron Altier has been working on a couple of projects. He spent time modifying some canes he made. These are beauties! Ron tells us the what and why of the changes Check his post for some of the nice comments left by our turne
  4. Well I happen to find out the hard way with this. I wanted to give 2x4s a try out to see if it would be some what safe for me to turn. Not sure if I didn't use enough glue or let the glue cure long enough. Started turning it using the roughing gouge I get half of it round. By the time I started on the tail stock end of the piece I had it up to about 1100 RPM roughly notch 9 on the lowest setting of the belts on the delta. As I put pressure on the gouge into the wood the next thing I know the piece basically snapped. Not in half but length wize with the glue joint. So the only thing I co
  5. Coming up on the end of January already! Time sure does fly during a Pandemic. A little less, this week, from our own but a lot more from others. Our Patriot Turners- We had a post this week from @ehbowen asking for some information about green wood. Eric got his hands on some freshly cut ash and wanted to know about preserving it. The post generated a lot of comments on turning, sanding project supplies and more. Maybe you can help give Eric some ideas. Check out his original post. @Pauley had a problem with some of his sanding discs and
  6. Just a gentle reminder- When posting threads, PLEASE add tags to your posts. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier asked us for ideas about modifications that could be made to make his lathe run slower. He received lots of comments and suggestions. If you have any recommendations, maybe you could help him out- Ron also posted a few more ornaments he finished and explained how he made some of the marvelous designs- @RustyFN Has been really busy this week! He started out showing us a bowl he turned- Ru
  7. WOW! What a week it has been here in the Woodturner's Forum. Forgive me if I missed a post. Before we get started, please check out this post for posting your projects. We want your projects to be front and center in our forum and get the attention they deserve- Our Patriot Turners- @John Hechel is cranking out some awesome French rolling pins. He certainly has his work cut out for him. In his post, John explains his processes and some of his techniques- @RustyFN brought us up to date on the bowl and emblem
  8. I went to Woodcraft today to buy some finish. I was looking at the 1/2” bowl gouges. The have Robert Sorby and another English brand for $100 each. They also had a China brand but as soon as I saw China I lost interest. I went online when I got home and looked at Thompson lathe tools. I can buy the Thompson for $120. On the Thompson site they offer a V bowl gouge and a U bowl gouge. Is one easier to use than the other or give a better finish? Does anybody know the pros and cons between the two? I think they said the V gouge had a fingernail grind.
  9. Friday is Christmas, guess I'd better start thinking about doing some shopping. Hope everyone here at the Patriot Woodworker has a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy new year! Our Patriot Turners- Speaking of Christmas presents, @Masonsailor completed another turning to add to his list of items. Paul provides some process shot of this piece in his post- @Steve Krumanaker tried out a new design for his bird house ornaments. It's really quite spectacular- Steve tells us where he "appropriated" this
  10. Well so far the big snow storm has been more hype than happen. About 6" on the ground and very little happening now. The weather folks are still predicting it to pick up over night. I guess we'll see. Nine days until Christmas!! Although we exceeded our goal for our Gold Star family, you can still donate and get in on the raffle. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier posed a couple of questions to our forum, this past week. His first question dealt with a turning technique. Our members provided their thoughts, what are yours- Ron showed us some orn
  11. I've been interested in trying resin casting and turning for bowls. Although I'm not interested enough just yet to purchase a pressure pot. I've been trying to research resins that I can mix that do NOT require a pressure pot and just time to cure with a bit of color as well. I think I want to try a couple of times with the resin so I can get familiar with it if I ever decide to get into the resin stuff. I do plan on going for the gallon bottles off the bat so that I know I have enough to make a couple blanks to test. But I'm unsure of what I would need to pick up for non pressure pot res
  12. In all of my mess ups I ran out of the 3/4 by 3/4 by 5 pen blanks......ooooof. So I’m using some of the 1 by 30 cut down two a 1 by 5 and cut for the brass inserts. This is what I’m down to until I can order more prope blanks at the end of the week. So I’ve got to turn off a lot of material to get down to the correct size. Let’s just hope this one actually cooperates and works.
  13. 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

  15. It's gonna be a little skimpy this week. We have been nursing a sick fur-baby who decide to get his minerals from some fairly good sized stones. Surgery was required. Please don't forget the there are only about 3 weeks left to get in on this years fundraiser/raffle. There have been some anonymous donors of additional prizes. It would be a shame to miss out! Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB is our top winner this week for the most activity. He has been adding to his turning accessories and providing us with reviews along the way. Andrew is trying o
  16. Okay folks got some issues here. The 2 inch by 5 inch piece that I got from Rockler the other day. I sanded off the wax seal off the wood yesterday. Today I started turning it. Nothing has cracked so far. Handled really well on the spin up. I went with the face plate method on this one. How ever this is my issue. I've got a good shape that I actually really like for this small bowl. Its simplistic which is what i like. Not too complex either. How ever if I cut a mortise or tennon in the bottom, that would not leave me with very much wiggle room sort to say on hollowing this thing o
  17. YEP you heard it sorry for the double threads today guys but the first bowl is beginning to take shape. After I got the blank turned down which took a while, the shakiness of the lathe worked itself out. It will be interesting hallowing this one out lol. Sadly this one will have a flat bottom but that’s alright. I think I’ve stood up for about as long as I could today the joints are feelin it.
  18. Well, June is over half way done and summer begins on Saturday! It was almost a "4 For" Mimi and me. When we were married it was the first day of summer (and the longest day of my life the year). This year the first day of summer falls on June 20. Had it been one day later we could have had Fathers Day, first day of summer, longest day of the year and our anniversary all at once! Please remember that our annual fundraiser/raffle is being held. We still have a ways to go to meet our goal. Check out the details at- Our Patriot Turners- I think the last 2 weeks mu
  19. Thunderstorm in progress here this evening. Not too much rain so far. Please remember that our annual fund drive/raffle is in progress. More about the awesome prizes and what we do with the proceeds is found here- Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB wins the prize this week for the most contributions to our forum! In response to last week's "Wednesday's...", Andrew reviewed is purchase of Savannah carbide tools along with a link to a source- He also provided additional information on the Wen lathe he purchased- Andrew also started
  20. Hey guys well bad news the harbor freight order fell through so I canceled it out all together any how I'm looking at something a bit better of a product anyway. I am looking at a Grizzly Industrial 16 inch by 46 inch Wood Lathe with DRO I am wondering if any of you guys use this particular model for your turning and if it would be a better investment over all rather than spending the 400 on a harbor freight that could just turn into a piece of junk and just out right spend the money on something decent. I am able to purchase the item as is, fortunately if I do purchase this it would basica
  21. Well Pennsylvania is slowly moving to lessen some restrictions but where we live things are not fully reopened. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier is still creating some awesome ornaments. Ron said he doesn't like this one but our turners disagree with his assessment. Check out Ron's post and see his explanation of this project. Be sure to let him know your opinion on the turning! We've had a new turner join our ranks. @AndrewB stopped by and told us a little about himself. He also gave us a look at one of his projects. Thank
  22. So for the first time I'm at a stand still on wood turning for the moment. The plug on my bench top lathe decided to break, so that wont get fixed until I can get my electrician over here to wire me a new cord. Well that happened to be the perfect excuse to order a new lathe haha. So I picked one up I did go with the harbor freight one since I'm just the hobby turner and newbie. How ever I'm hoping that the faceplate from my Wen will fit the harbor freight lathe. Any how with that being said I wound up working on the project and where I've gotten so far was a small goblet rather than a ca
  23. Hope this finds all of you and your families safe and well. The weather here has been beautiful. Even had an awesome thunderstorm last night. Our Patriot Turners- @FrederickH managed to score some really nice turning tools and asked our members their opinions. Check out his post and see if you can provide some additional advice- Most of us have been asked to stay at home during this health crisis. One of the other forums, at the Patriot, is showing our members' quarantine project. @John Hechel posted a beautiful walnut

Our Patriot Turners- @Pauley posted a gorgeous curly maple vase he turned- Pauley tells us about the finishing process in his post- @Ron Altier provided an update on the ultraviolet finish with which he has been experimenting. Here's more in Ron's post- Ron also asked for some adhesive advice from our members. He wants to glue wood to acrylic. Please head on over to his post and see if you can
