My Clubs and Organizations

  1. A little longer post this week. Was away last week and didn't have access to my weekly list of stuff to post. Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN posted a picture of a bowl he started for a continuing project with the turning club in which he is a member. Rusty showed us a picture of what will be added to this turning, during a future club meeting. Turning can be a messy hobby. Rusty posted some of his by-products- @AndrewB continues working on pepper mills. In this post, he shows us one of his maple mills assembled and finis
  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. I am cross posting this from here to the finishing forum as well. I hope that is OK. I'm seeing a lot of Youtube videos about Yorkshire Grit and home made alternatives for use on turned bowls and spindles. Some combination of beeswax, mineral spirits, and various fine gritted compounds. The DIY version usually has diatomaceouos earth - seems like a very fine clay of some sort. These guys sand to 220, seal with nitrocellulose sanding sealer, then rub this stuff on with a paper towel It appears that it all is sanding the sanding sealer more than the wood.
  4. 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
  5. I hope I’m calling this the right thing....are the disc (hook and loop) sanding pads, the part that goes on the drill, are they all the same? Seems the ones I have just don’t want to hold the disc onto the pad. Or, maybe I’m doing something wrong. It gets frustrating. Any ideas?
  6. I seem to have the same problem when sanding it doesn’t matter if it is wood or resin. I will sand to a point where everything looks great. Then when I go to the next grit I get lines in the bowl and have to go back to a more coarse grit to get rid of them. Sometimes it happens after 240 and sometimes higher. Is it because there is a build up of dust in the paper making the marks? Could it be I am pushing too hard? Could it be I am leaving the sandpaper in one place too long? I would appreciate any help.

    Sanding 101

    https://www.finewoodworking.com/2015/09/30/secrets-for-better-sanding
  8. Sanding may sound elemental but to get that good finish it is essential part of the process of turning to a finish. The best way to improve your finish is to first learn to turn to a better finish off your tools. This will take time so lets look at what to do till that happens. Always sand from beginning grit to finish grit. Do not skip grits. My progression is 80,120,180,220,320,400,600,800,1000,2000, 4000. Unless my finish off the gouge is good those steps are followed. Might start at 60 for a bad piece of wood , yes it is always the fault of the wood . For most turnings I only g
  9. I know you probably don't want to hear this, but Christmas is only 2 months away. Lockdowns and job layoffs are really affecting everyone. Again, this year, we will have the opportunity to make one family's Christmas not so bleak. Please check out this information on our annual Adopt-a-Family project- Also, reminding our turners to please add tags to their posts. Those tags help us all when searching for specific information. Our Patriot Turners- Today, @Gerald added an extremely informative blog on drying turned wood. I had asked Gerald what his tec
  10. This morning I've started on the next two projects I've got lined up. A couple of Bhilwara wood bowls. Should look extremely nice. I'm currently waiting on my assorted sand paper packs to arrive before I can even continue sanding on the outside of the bowl. But it was extremely smooth going on the shaping of this bowl. I've also worked out a new way of doing things as well when it comes to shaping. If I have two of the same types of wood, I'll wait until both bowls are shaped and sanded on the outside until I swap the jaws to the cole jaws for finishing the bottoms. It works quite well
  11. Here's hoping all our members along the northern Gulf are safe. I saw where Pensacola had almost 2 feet of rain so far. On another note, please remember to add tags to your posts. I try to remember to check but sometimes my memory fails me. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been cranking out projects like crazy this past week! His little elm bowl is beautiful- You can see his progress in this post and check out the comments by our turners- Next, Andrew posted his work on a bloodwood bowl. All did not go as planned as he de
  12. 50 years ago, I started teaching at the local Vocational School. After retiring, I continued to substitute for another 17 years. This year I finally decided to officially retire. We'll see how it goes. Our Patriot Turners- Last week, @Artie posted about his new toys he won in our raffle and asked about any additional equipment he needed to get started. Tha post generated a lot of great ideas. But @Cliff added something very important about lathe speed and safety- From Cliff's post, I found this article- Yamaguchi_SafetyMatters.pdf @R
  13. Congrats to all of the Patriot Raffle winners. We made our fundraising goal! Hope everyone along the east coast is safe and didn't suffer any damage from the hurricane over the weekend. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald Started a thread that should generate a lot of input. Sanding your lathe projects. You all know that sanding is my second favorite thing in all the world. Please check out what Gerald's setup is and show us your sanding techniques. @Ron Altier has been frustrated by the U/V finish he has been using. Ron applied it to a beautifu
  14. Okay so this was an interesting turn of events. Hollowing went smoothly. Not too much catching thankfully. I was able to get a nice enough shape for a dip bowl inside of the look that I was trying to go for. You guys have seen the start. I'm just about finished with this project here. I do have resin in hand for the inside of the bowl for the coating and I also have mineral oil. Not sure what else I could do to finish it up. I only sanded it up to 400 grit on the papers. I've still gotta cut off the mortise section. Either way I like the way this one is turning out. I'm sure it will
  15. Well the weather here in South Central PA is finally starting to look more like spring. Only 3 days in the last 4 weeks have had above average temperatures. Maybe I can get some plants into the garden! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald turned a gorgeous vase from chestnut oak. Not only does it have a beautiful shape, Gerald also finished it with various stains to create fantastic depths of color. Gerald explains more about his process in his post- Gerald also posted some of his turnings in our gallery-
  16. Looking for a good small detailed sander to use on turning projects. I just watched the video Ron Altier post about the whatchamacallit thing. I saw the guy using a small Makita sander that I think would be nice. Does anyone have this or is there something better out there. Not sure what to look for. Is there attachments that would be useful?? Thanks for the suggestions John T.
  17. Has anyone had any experience with one of these? And if so, how'd ya like it? Pros or cons? King Arthur's Tools Total Sanding Kit I wonder if I could use my slow speed grinder, attach a chuck to it, and purchase just the flex shaft?
  18. I had a nice day last weekend, I was in my shop for most of it, just tooling around and getting reacquainted with my clean shop! So I started back in on my claro walnut rocker. I had some issues with the legs to the seat joint so I spent some time truing up the joint's (different post later tonight) and after wards I still had some considerable shaping to do with my right angle grinder. So I put a 60 grit disk on the grinder and went to town on the rear portion of the seat, I had some dishing out to do that I started last year but got side tracked away from it. It took me about 15 minutes t
  19. Anybody ordered sandpaper lately? Just ordered some Norton Prosand and the 120 was $20 for 20 9x11 sheets. Has something happened to cause this or did I just order the expensive stuff? On Amazon it is over 40.
  20. So just to get a little chatter going and I haven't ask one of these in a while, I thought today would be a good time. When you are doing or planning a woodworking project, what is your favorite part of the project? 1. Drawing a scale drawing 2. Building a prototype 3. Dimensioning the material 4. Layout 5. Joinery 6. Assembly 7. Sanding 8. Staining or finishing 9. Just seeing the end results!
  21. I am making some hickory doors for cabinets with raised panels. I had my router bit sharpened and it did a good job, but the end grain needs to be sanded. How do you go about sanding the end grain on raised panels? Best regards, Ron
  22. This LINK takes you to a method to make holders for sanding discs for your drill. I will add to this you will need to add a pad to the holder and velcro . For gluing the pad ( garden knee foam works) on Shoe Goo works very well. For the velcro use either plain back and glue on or self adhesive. Also I shape mine with the wood being smaller than the sanding pad and then shape the foam on the lathe with a skew , kinda like a little funnel shape.
  23. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier used the heat method to "recolor" the purple heart in his latest ornament. Check out Ron's description in his post- @RustyFN continues to work on the glue-up for the vase he is going to turn- See how Rusty plans to get his blank ready for turning- @Gerald is finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with his collection plates- See more images and what Gerald has accomplished in his continuing post- What’s C
  24. Hope everyone survived July 4th and @Gerald glad you weren't hurt in the explosion!! Our Patriot Turners- We've had some Christmas ornaments posted this past week! First up was @Ron Altier with another one of his SpectraPly beauties. Ron discusses this piece in his posting- Then just today, @HandyDan showed us some more of his inside-out ornaments with some surprises inside! Check out Dan's post to see how he got those glass centers in there! @Pauley was busy in his shop. Just look
