  1. Boy, we could use some rain in this part of Pennsylvania. Of course the upside is that the grass doesn't need mowing Lots happening this week with our turners! Our Patriot Turners- Both @FlGatorwood , @Artie and @Larry Cutlip received their raffle prizes and posted thanks to @Jim from Easy Wood Tools for their participation and supplying the Easy Wood Tools products! Aartie asked us for advice on additional turning equipment in his post. Check it out and see if you can think of anything else he might need- @Andrew is really progressing with his pen turning- Andrew's post from last week on pressure pots has continued to generate more discussion and suggestions- @Ron Altier posted an update on his Ultraviolet finish. Ron also showed us a really awesome "ornament". He thinks he may have to modify it to be used on a Christmas tree- @DRAGON1 Is looking for a little help. He needs a coffee mug turned. Maybe one of our turners can help him out. Here is his request- Last week's "Wednesday's..." generated a series of comments on a stuck screw on a carbide cutter. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools provided the answer as well as uploading an information sheet from Easy Wood Tools- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to registration and more information. Click on the image for the link to the registration. For The Newbies- @AndrewB asked s about tearout a while back. Mike Peace recently posted a video explaining why this happens and some of the ways to prevent it- Want to try a little fancier bowl? Carl Jacobson shows us how- Expand Your Horizons- One of the most interesting types of wood to turn is spalted wood. Many species of wood can have spalting and it creates unbelievable patterns. An example can be seen in the video above. Here is a blog post from Woodcraft- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/woodsense-spotlight-on-spalted-wood New Turning Items- I have to thank @Cliff for this week's new turning item. This is probably the best thought out steady rest I've seen. It is a little expensive but in the same neighborhood as the Carter steady- Everything Else- Rick Turns posted two updates on videos this week. This first one has several interesting entries. Look for one on resin molds, a series of short videos on turning tools from Record Tools and one on homemade abrasive pastes. Rick's second post has an extensive list of videos. Rick writes- "this video announces a playlist of the latest woodturning videos from every active woodturning channel that I have located and cataloged in my database." Finally finished up that little cherry bowl that wasn't supposed to crack because it was soaked in a soap solution. For the past 3 days I've been milling materials for some more rolling pins. Not hard just repetitive. Safe turning and stay well
  2. I have spalted Maple left from an old project and decided to turn an ornament out of it. It was VERY unstable in some places and my plans changed as I turned. I ended up with the shape you see and I used the ultraviolet cured clear finish. I used it Mainly because the wood was so poreus and extremely dry. As I took it out to the sunlight to harden, I got a bonus. It hardened quickly and I didn't notice till later that the finish had started to drip. If you look at the very bottom you will see what looks like a fine, clear point. It looks as tho I planned it, If I planned it, the result would not look anywhere near that good. This finish isn't my favorite, but it did the job with this spalted piece.
  3. Well, normally this would be Tax Day but this year is anything but normal. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier did a couple of really neat "pulls". Even in the dark, you can tell the function of each. Here's Ron's explanation of what he did- Ron also showed us how he displays some of his gorgeous ornaments! Head over to his post to see some more of his work- What’s Coming Up- In case you missed it, here is yesterday's video from Woodcraft's "Turning Tuesday". Frank turns a salt and pepper set- As you can see, Frank is no stranger to those Easy Wood Tools! ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) For The Newbies- Mr. David Reed Smith has a new project available. His well documented projects are free to view but they are also available in PDF format for an very small fee. This particular project is well suited for the beginning woodturner and would make a nice gift for any youngster. Check out Mr. Smith's tutorial here- http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/RainbowPegDolls/RainbowPegDolls.html The Woodturning monthly newsletter is available. Lots of interesting information- Here's the link- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Expand Your Horizons- A project that none of us really wants to consider, nevertheless, we just might be asked to make one of these. Mike Peace has a 2 part video on making an urn. Mike details how to use commonly available PVC components to create the threaded lid. Part #2 is linked from Mike's channel- Bottle stoppers are always a nice gift to the host or hostess. The Woodworker's Journal has a nice article on turning some cool examples. This article uses cork stoppers but there are some really great stainless steel ones available. I get mine from Ruth Niles- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/ We live in an area where Amish and Mennonites are prevalent. I copied this stopper from one that I saw in Ruth's shop- Easter is over but that gives you time to make one of these "Cadbury Eggs" for next year. Carl Jacobson shows us how! New Turning Items- In several videos, from different turners, I've seen this tool in use and it looks pretty handy. Sam Angelo shows us how to make one- This second video shows a little more about the tool- Everything Else- I've been playing with a piece of spalted maple. I wanted to make a symmetrical shaped bowl but was having trouble getting the upper and lower halves even. Then this popped into my head- I used this Duplication gauge and flipped it back and forth until the halves were even. Sanded the outside. This will not be one of those mirror finishes! Soft spots and cracks. Rechucked it and started hollowing. There was a rotten branch buried in the center. Not sure how much meat will be left when I get to the bottom of the defect. Using the depth gauge to determine the bottom thickness. Still have a little ways to go. That missing chunk on the rim is where the rotten branch started and proceeded diagonally thru the piece. Safe turning and stay well
  4. 10/15 years ago I was able to get some spalted Box Elder pieces. I had never seen a wood with red in it. I was fascinated. The pictures are of the incomplete pieces. I went back to get some more and they didn't have any. However they had some that looked nearly as red. I was going to pick it up and looked closer when I saw a sign. "This wood is a member of the Sumac family and some people can have the same reaction as they would with poison Ivy." WOA!!! I could immediately see me in the hospital after handling and breathing in the dust.
  5. 3 more ornaments. 2 are made of colored ply that I cut and reglued. Also used the new finish with UV light drying. I like that finish a lot. I use a small brush to apply and then after 3 minutes of UV light on all surfaces, I then use 400 sandpaper until it is as I want it and apply clear spray. I'm sure you can see some areas where I am still learning(still playing) The one on the right has multi colors because it is a spalted maple piece. They passed the critical inspection (wife) Mama is happy...........so is pappy
  6. So I picked up these logs the other day and they have great signs of being spalted but I can’t work them just yet. Shop is buried in bee hive parts right now. Any advice on storage? They sat outside for a year and at the moment they are sitting in my driveway wrapped in trashbags. I guessing introducing fungus into the garage could be bad for the hives. I actually have four logs of it, came from a sweet gum tree.

    Spalted box

    Finished this box today. The bottom was not two piece till I turned the bottom off . So I added a stand. Box is spalted white oak and lid is spalted pecan. The finish is lacquer buffed with Maguires buffing cpd and then polish.
  8. I started making Christmas gifts for family and friends. My wife wanted me to see the "Prayer cross" that some stores are selling. I liked the idea, but not the wood. I made mine out of spalted Maple. They are about 5" high and easily held in praying hands. I know several of my family members will love this. I selected the best areas of spalt, drilled holes w/forstner drill, cut each with jig saw and used the band saw to compete each. Then rough sanded with my spindle sander (smallest shaft) to give it the rough hewn look. I went thru the extra efforts cutting them out to save other areas for future use.
  9. One of the members of our woodturning club passed away some time ago, and a family member offered up his stash of unturned blanks for free. I got a few, and they have been drying out in my basement all summer. I finally started on a new bowl last week. My first issue is, what kind of wood is this? At first, I thought it was spalted maple, but after working with it, now I think it is spalted hackberry. I based my choice on some Google images I saw of wood identified as spalted hackberry. Any opinions? I also learned a couple of things while working on this bowl. Easy Wood Tools are really sharp. After carelessly handling the finishing tool, I felt something sticky on the handle. Looking down, I realized I had a small cut on my finger that I didn't feel when it happened. OK, no big deal, I'll just lick a paper towel and wipe my finger to prevent the blood from getting on my bowl. So, straight from the "Well Duh" chronicles, I proceeded to lick the inside of my face shield which I had forgotten I still had on. I guess that is good, in that my face shield is so comfortable that I can forget I am wearing it, but I still felt like an idiot. I know none of you ever do anything that you are glad goes un-witnessed. Right?
  10. From over working the Single Brain Cell Sketch-up. It was on over load trying to figure out a tool box build. Had a blank of spalted....something or other Well, this is the leftovers. It was 22" long, cut it in half. Drug the old Craftsman T rail lathe up off the storage crates, and fastened it down to my bench. Only place I have down there to run a lathe. Kept looking through stuff, trying to find the "pattern' i wanted. Got the blank mounted on the lathe, and turned round. Chippy stuff, no shavings. Got a start at just winging it from memory, and looked over and found the pattern. Handle was a bit too scrawny for my hand, so the new one was to be FATTER. Sanded things down, parted off the one end. Added an oil finish, and tok everything out side to dry in the sun Old mallet is laying down on the job, again. had to wipe down the NEW mallet one more time ah, that is looking a bit better. Not too bad for a rookie? FIRST mallet I have ever turned. I inherited the old one...
  11. While perusing the wide world web tonight, forever in search of factual based data for our wiki, I stumbled across The Public Domain Review, a great resource for information and research, one of the articles I came across was this very interesting history of Intarsia. Just thought I'd share it here. https://publicdomainreview.org/2018/05/16/exquisite-rot-spalted-wood-and-the-lost-art-of-intarsia/
  12. Haven't done one of these for a few years, wife wanted to know could I make some boxes for Christmas presents. Decided to copy liam O'neills "crooked grain box" style. Here is the first one. It's from a piece of spalted beech that surprised me with some nice ambrosia. The contrasting wood is walnut. She wanted them for the grandkids, when I showed here this one, she told me I could make different ones for the grandkids Steve
