  1. 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- What’s Coming Up- Cindy Drozda is having a special live video demonstration! "On May 23, 2020, I will be offering a Live, Interactive, Woodturning Demonstration where I show you how I turn my signature Finial Box. This is an internet presentation that you can watch from your home, on a computer or TV. You will be able to ask questions and I will answer you in real time. After the demo, I will be online to chat. Come join me!" For The Newbies- Sharpening traditional turning tools can be a challenge. Here, Mike Peace demonstrated how to sharpen a both a standard and curved radius skew- Sanding a turning is my achilles heel. No matter how hard I try and how long I work, there always seems to be those obvious scratches. The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a blog section on their website and I found this article to be interesting- https://woodturnerswonders.com/blogs/news/41247428-the-art-of-sanding Expand Your Horizons- Not everyone is a fan of gloss finishes. I discovered that when I sent a little walnut form to a friend as a gift- after he said how much he liked it. He stripped the gloss finish and made it matted and cut the finial length in half. Anyway, if you do enjoy glass like finishes, Mr. M. Saban has a three part video set on his methods. These were live demonstrations so they tend to be a little lengthy. Part#1- Parts #2 and 3 can be found at- https://www.youtube.com/user/workingimage/videos New Turning Items- Woodcraft, one of our site sponsors, has some new forstner bits. They are available in both metric and fractional diameters. They are supposed to stay sharper longer. Everything Else- Rick Turns has started publishing his list of YouTube videos in a weekly format. My idea of the ebony feet on my arch nemesis bowl was a complete failure. My thoughts were to keep the feet small so as not to be the focal point. I just don't have the talent for graceful proportions. I think I'll just put a finish on it and call it done. Inside- Outside- Safe turning and stay well
  2. Happy Birthday America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our Patriot Turners- We continue to have a great discussion on @Gerald's post on what we need to know to get started turning. If you haven't been following along, please head on over to that post and see what is happening! @Artie has asked a question about turning needs that closely related to Gerald's post. Artie's question generated lots of comments and discussion. Please check out the post and see if you can help out- @Danl found a video, by Richard Raffan, explaining how catches occur. The video concentrates on the skew chisel and the gouge. What’s Coming Up- http://www.turnonchicago.com/ For The Newbies- A follow up to @Danl's post on catches, these video should help the beginner- or any turner- get more comfortable using the skew chisel- This is a seven part series by Ian Robo Robertson. All of the parts can be found at- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeV9fORSV0QAc-25uxshDPw Mike Peace developed a nice little video illustrating a jig to size tenons. These little jigs really speed up the tenon prep- Expand Your Horizons- Tired of turning spindles and bowls? Check out this neat item from Tim Yoder! New Turning Items- @Steve Krumanaker uses pyrography to embellish the bottom of his bowls. Robert Sorby has partnered with Peter Child in releasing this new pyrography machine. This pyrography system supports two lightweight pens. The pens heat up from cold in two seconds. Pen tips can be purchased or homemade. Making homemade tips is easy using nickel chromium wire. The unit is available from Amazon. Everything Else- I really need to get back to the lathe. So many interruptions and people calling wanting things done. Off and on I have been playing with an idea to help me improve the wall thickness consistency of my hollow turnings. I've made a few "wire" type thickness gauges and they work for part of the turning sides. But inside, around the neck, it is difficult to get a measurement. Of course there must be a simple, easy to use device but... Don't laugh! I'm not a metal worker. My metal-working tools consist of a hacksaw and a file. The "device" is a fully adjustable laser indicator. The laser is one of those "pet lasers" that uses 3 batteries. I calculated that a 5v USB charges could be used to power the laser if I added a silicon diode (1N4000 series) in series with one of the USB power leads, The diode drops just enough voltage to safely power the laser. Mounted the laser on a sliding holder. Articulated the measuring end to get around corners. In action Made mostly of aluminum and brass except for the articulated arm which is steel key stock. Sliding parts fixed with thumb screws. I should have bypassed the on-off switch but I can loosen the clamp, holding the laser, and slide it down under the clamp. Safe turning
  3. This is an interesting Russian video with a very unique tool
  4. For years, I had hoped to teach some of my off spring just something I had learned from watching videos, YouTubes, reading books and forums and it seemed hopeless until today. Yes, he is only 12 and I allowed him to use the skew chisel to put a couple lines around the handle. Here he is sanding. I am so sorry that I did not get a picture of him with the skew in his hand. First picture he is sanding on top of the handle, second is under the handle. Now, he is anxious to turn. I have some stuff for him to do but it will have to be dry and warm again. Steve
  5. Another busy week here for the Patriot turners! @Ron Altier asked a question concerning the angle on the skew chisel- curved or straight? Seems most of your turners prefer the straight cutting edge. Why not head over to Ron's post and provide him with your preference- @oldwoodie Asked for our input on assembling pen kits. He is concerned about installing the pen refill in an older pen kit- He was also unsure about whether pressed in parts need to be glued in place- I know some of you have turned pens and you may be able to help him out. I have always had trouble trying to make my turning look more elegant. They always seem out of proportion or clunky. I've read about the "Golden Mean" and how it can be used to create a visually appealing product. And then there is the "Rule of Thirds". Which to use??? Here is some reference material to help make that decision (or make it more confusing). I pulled these from the Internet and have left the authors details within each- http://www.westbaywoodturners.com/tutorial/pdf_files/Woodturning_Design.pdf This link show a plane for creating a "golden section gauge"- http://www.goldennumber.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/golden-section-gauge.gif Finally a detailed video explanation of the Golden Mean and why it may not be so important. Be warned, the video is quite lengthy- While answering an email from another site, I found this marvelous turning site- http://hampstevens.com/ Mr. Stevens will graciously provide instructions on how to turn these seemingly impossible spheres. If interested, he can be contacted at- hamp@hampstevens.com @Jim from Easy Wood Tools and our friend from Easy Wood Tools posted a video introducing the Easy Wood Tools with Tracey Malady. This is a great video for those interested in getting started with Easy Wood Tools. You may have recently read that the Easy Wood Tools are now available in the UK! Our fellow turners, across the pond, will finally get to use the best turning tools on the planet! Not only are the EWT tools available in the UK but also the absolutely awesome Easy Wood Easy Chuck! It's always nice to be able to make your own turning tools instead of buying them. Mike Peace shows us how to make a beading tool and a captive ring tool in a couple of his latest videos. Safe turning
  6. I watched the video on proper use of the skew chisel (lew posted) and noticed how he had his sharpened with a slight curve, rather than a straight edge. I haven't see the curve before and it looks like a better way. I don't use the skew much, when I first started I ruined things, didn't know how to properly use it. Is your skew edge curved?
  7. this video made me realize how little I know
  8. One of my favorite chair makers Curtis Buchanan shows us how to turn a bead with a skew chisel. Nice video.
  9. I was watching some youtube video and stumbled onto a Stuart Batty demo. He mentions a video library that has some good content and I checked it out. I haven't watched nearly all of the videos but the ones I have watched are very well done and hidef. Here's the link if anyone interested. Steve
  10. Thanks for the advise on turning blue stripes. Lew, I did return to the skew and did so more carefully. I did get much better results. Acceptable results, but not great. Probably as good as I'll get. I'm still playing around, so who knows!
