  1. I wish I could say this is all an April Fools joke, but... Two posts this week I thought were extremely important even though they didn't deal with turning. The first from @Ron Altier about isolation. This can be a real deal breaker for some folks. I'm glad we have each other to help fend off those feelings. The second was from @Kevin Beitz wondering why more of us weren't posting on the forums now that we are asked to stay home. With all of the doom and gloom bombarding us from all sides, some of us just can't get the juices flowing enough to really enjoy time in the shop. Our Patriot Turners- @Lissa Hall showed us her first turned bowl and it is a beauty. Lissa turned it from cedar- Check out Lissa's post and give her kudos on a great turning! @Masonsailor continues to finish up his lazy susan tulips. He have us two updates this week- and- Our old friend @Charles Nicholls is still cranking out his great stuff. Charles showed us what he is up to on a post from last Friday- New member @marshall posted an inquiry about learning to use a Ringmaster from Peter Merritt. He has received a few comment but hopefully some of you can direct him to more information- What’s Coming Up- "Turning Tuesday at Woodcraft" is a new video presentation from our sponsor. This is from their YouTube channel- "We are starting a weekly live video series where we hang out in the shop and make something. As of right now Tuesdays at 2pm Frank will be turning one of our project kits. We will hopefully be adding more streams as well. Make sure you follow us on social media to stay up to date." For The Newbies- There are pretty much as many ways to turn a project as there are turners. Here's a nice video on turning spheres without any special jigs- Expand Your Horizons- Last week we posted a rather lengthy video on getting into resin turning. Woodcraft has a written tutorial for those wishing to give it a try. You can read it at- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/resins-for-rookies New Turning Items- Sorry, could find anything this week. Everything Else- With everyone trying to stay safe, some turning clubs are using virtual meetings to keep in touch. I think some of our turners, here, have done this. Here is a video from Mike Peace going over some thoughts and ideas. And for your enjoyment, a little something from our good friend Tim Yoder- Safe turning and stay well
  2. I am just now becoming familiar with it. Does anyone care to educate us further on what it is, how it works, and why you do it? Thanks!
  3. There are still a few days remaining to help with our Wounded Warrior Family Adoption project. If you haven't made your donation, yet, please see this link- https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/topic/27849-the-patriot-woodworkers-with-operation-ward-57-adopt-a-wounded-warrior-family-for-the-holidays-2019 Been thinking that maybe I might get started on Christmas shopping, next week...maybe... Our Patriot Turners- Our members have been really active this week. Lots pf projects and comments- @Ron Altier has been working on ornaments. He posted three of his latests creations- Ron's post has more details on how these were made- Unfortunately for Ron, not all the attempts turned out as he expected. One of his acrylic pieces didn't hold up- He received some interesting comments and suggestions to his post about this failure- One of the comments was from @Woodbutcherbynight who suggested he might try Corian materials and posted some of his fantastic pens that use that material- @Woodbutcherbynight also showed us some of the fan pulls he is making. The little beauties are really something! Here's his post on them- Gunny is the big winner this week with the most posts! He turned beautiful segmented bases for wine and champagne glasses. You can see how he did the glue-ups and turning in his posts- This shows his clamping jig- We have a revival of an older post. Back in the summer @John Morris asked if any of our members were familiar with the Ringmaster turning device. At that time he received a bunch of input. Some of our newer members recently discovered the post and have added to it. Check it out and see what's new! @Pauley asked for help and ideas on dust collection. Seems he is turning Bubinga and needed some advice on how to handle the dust and chips. Please head on over to his post and see if you can give him some ideas- @Gerald is holding us in suspense waiting to see the item he creates from a piece of Azobe wood. He was gifted the wood from a turner friend. Check this topic to see more about the wood! What’s Coming Up- This weeks club- http://www.lasvegaswoodturners.com/ For The Newbies- AS your turning experiences expand from spindle work to bowls and hollow vessels, it becomes necessary to be able to gauge the thickness of the walls of your turnings. Some turnings, i.e. shallow bowls, you can use your fingers to determine the thickness. But, as the depth increases, differents tools have to be used. Here is a video, from Sam Angelo, on making wall thickness gauges- Expand Your Horizons- Photographing your turnings can be challenging and frustrating. Member @Gerald has an excellent blog on photography and you can check it out at- I recently came across a video from Mike Peace on this subject. He shows us some of the shop made items we can use to help make our photos a little better. Also, Rick Turns has his November You Tube video listing available- New Turning Items- Woodturners Wonders has a sale on their Wonder Weave sanding discs https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/specials Everything Else- The latest edition of the Woodturning OnLine newsletter arrived. There is a link to a really great article on vacuum chuck systems. https://www.woodturningonline.com/ When I turn a utilitarian bowl, I usually use a recess for the jaws- just the way I learned and I find the bottom foot is a little larger. However, the recess makes it more difficult to judge the thickness of the bottom. While looking at Sam Angelo's wall thickness gauges, I found a video he posted on a nice, shop made jig that accurately measures the bottom thickness on recess and tenon methods. My version mimics his with only minor additions- The fixed headstock spacer- The movable depth indicator- Calibrating the fixed spacer- The end of the spacer is set to be on the same plane as the end of the chuck/jaws being used Calibrating the movable depth indicator- The threaded rod is adjusted to be on the same plane as the base of the movable portion- When correctly calibrated, the depth rod will touch the jaw surface when the bottom sliding part touches the fixed part. To use, position the threaded rod against the bottom of the turning. Observe the space between the fix and sliding parts of the jig. The distance is the thickness of the bottom of the turning. Here is Mr. Angelo's video- Safe turning
