  1. It's been computer madness here so far this week! I think I need a vacation!!! Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB used a glued up poplar blank for a pepper grinder. Looks really nice. He shows us some progression shots in this post- Andrew has found a new source for turning blanks. He gives us the low down in this post- @RustyFN gave us an update on the platter he started last week- Check Rusty's post for additional pictures and the start to finish thread- Rusty has also been busy with his

    New bowl

    Been working on this one for the last week.
  3. I finished my second one. Made a few mistakes. I wanted to make the bottom a checkered pattern. Half way through the first cut it hit me that there are only five pieces and I needed six to make the checkered pattern. I made the rest of the cuts and put a thin walnut strip in. I wanted to make the inside a barrel like the outside but was having trouble so I left it straight. It is 13” in diameter and 5” tall.
  4. 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
  5. This is my first attempt at a segmented bowl. It was fun. I enjoyed the process. The bottom is Padauk and I think the rest is some cherry I had laying around. I liked not having a mountain of shavings and it was fairly quick to turn.
  6. 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
  7. Three more segmented ply birdhouse ornaments. Probably the last of these for a bit.
  8. I have made dozens of segmented plywood Christmas globes for ornaments but had never done a birdhouse ornament with segmented plywood. I like the idea but this one is a little clunky I think. Will have to explore this further!!
  9. So I began carving out and hollowing my bowl. Everything went fine of course. Even tried out my new tool rests which fit perfectly. How ever the deeper into the project I get the more the chisels want to catch on the sides. So I decided to make it a bit shallower. In the end it didn't even really turn out the way I really wanted it to. How ever I still finished it off. But I guess I'll try again soon LOL. Not sure if I want to continue with bowls or try something else with turning not sure at this point. But in my own opinion I think this first go was a failure.
  10. I posted these on one of the what are you doing I think last Monday . The idea came from a video AAW sent oiut in a news letter. I did not really like that totally so searched and found Sam Angelo had a nice video. Now this is a couple of my versions.
  11. I glued up a bunch of segmented plywood ornament blanks and am hollowing globes today. Just started hollowing this and one of those aggravating fall bees landed on my hand. I flinched just enough to get a catch. Hate it because after cutting, gluing and shaping I've got a fair bit of time in one of these. On the bright side it looks like my glue joints were pretty good and I'll use the rest of it for a two piece top. Steve
  12. This is truly a magnificent bowl, there is so much waste of wood. I saw a video where a guy used a curved cutter to remove and save the center wood to make smaller bowls.
  13. I don't do turning, but have some friends that do. Here is a recent one that one top honors at the local Woodcraft store. In the last couple years, he's gotten into segmented turning and has some neat fixtures to help glue them up. The ghostly stool is a reflection in the glass display case.
  14. This has been one of those weeks that I have been busy as can be and don't feel like I accomplished much. I have about four projects in various stages and none of them completely finished. Oh well, I at least know that I have something to do each day. I have a batch of Pizza Peels that are in the process, but not finished right now. I am still sanding on the Walnut Vanity top and Kitchen shelf. The Oak cabinet doors were waiting on the cutting boards to come out of the finishing room. I did get a batch of ten cutting boards finished. Five medium size and five small size
  15. I figured this would be a great place to document my path down segmented turning. That way we can all look back years later and laugh... Today I will start with why I am looking at getting into segmented turning in the first place. Last Christmas I was trying to figure out what to get my dad for a gift. He is at the stage where there isn't much he needs, and I had already made him a dozen or so pens. In the end I came up with the idea of a beer koozie. Strips of wood cut at an angle on each side glued together with one of those thin foam can insulating things spray glued to th
  16. @Joe Candrilli has decided to go blogging! Way to go Joe! The blog area is a wonderful useful tool to show your story, and for a place to know that your story will not be lost in the archives of the forums, the blogs will last and last! I personally look forward to reading Joe's entries as he works, thanks for taking advantage of an often overlooked feature of our community Joe, the blogs!
  17. Hi all, So I recently became interested in segmented wood turning, and most of my research on the topic took me back to the same place: Seg Easy. Jerry Bennett has 4 videos on how to build, set up, and use a 'wedgie sled' to make segments. After building the sled, stop, and zero clearance strip I ordered a 'wedgie' from him. You can easily set up the sled using a protractor and some simple math (which I did and it worked flawlessly the first try) but I felt obligated to order a wedge and use the system as designed (plus I had already received a ton of free help from the site so
  18. I wondered what it would look like if I bored holes in a block of walnut, glued in Maple dowels and turned it into a vase. It came out nice and the dowels made a great design that was uniform in shape and highlights the vase. Deeper cuts will also change the shape. I have plans to use other woods, but it will have to be a round toit.
  19. This is one of my better turnings. I had a piece of firewood from an old apple tree and saw some spalting in it. I combined some exotic wood rings in it and it came out beautiful. I am not good enough to hollow out something like this and if I was, the spalted apple would not holdup, it was pithy.
  20. Segmented plywood this time. Haven't done any of these for a couple years as I couldn't find decent plywood. The last piece I got from Menards had so many voids I threw most of my blanks away. I had a free shipping code from Rockler and bought a 3/4" piece of baltic birch. It was very nice to work with and basically had no waste. Steve
  21. Are they segmented? I thought of doing segmented ornaments for a while but really didn't like the idea of cutting the little segments and gluing them together. Seemed like a lot of work. I came up with a way to do inlay which seems easier or maybe it is just because its my way. I started out with making a jig to run the pieces through the saw. There are two side pieces with a two inch spacer block between. I stuck the side pieces together and drilled a .25 inch hole 1.50 inches from the end and 1.25 inches up from the bottom. In the picture the block between the center spacer
  22. I used some spalted Apple, yellow hart and Paduk to make this one. I am not good enough to hollow it out, but neither was the spalted Apple. I was worried that it would not hold up when I was turning it. My wife said this was a keeper. My daughter took one look and said, "Dad, I love this one" my wife nodded and I gave it to her.
  23. my first vase off the lathe. Just a few pieces of wood in this one more to learn and more to follow.
