  1. Thanks, Mike, for reminding us of how we have the freedoms we enjoy today- Our Patriot Turners- @Roy gave us an update on how his sphere jig is working. In his post he explains the significance of the choice of spheres. I can't imagine how he did the glue-up! @forty_caliber posted another beautiful bowl he turned from pecan He answers questions about the awesome center medallion he uses to sign his work- check this post @Gerald gave us a look at his setup for turning spoons without the aid of special jigs- He received lots of comments about his setup- Gerald also posted some of the ornaments he turned using an idea from last week's "4 Ways" Here's more from Gerald- Gerald's post got me thinking about some of the ornaments our members turned in years gone by. We had links to lots of design for ideas. Thought it would be nice to bring back some of them to stir your imaginations- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/turn-a-terrific-tree-ornament http://www.crwoodturner.com/files/how-to/ornaments.pdf http://kurthertzog.com/articles/creatingshellornamentsrev3red.pdf https://blog.woodturnerscatalog.com/2012/12/turning-a-snowman-box/ What’s Coming Up- https://community.woodturner.org/events/event-description?CalendarEventKey=a2728bff-a39d-4375-adee-018b90a311c9&Home=%2fevents%2fird-demonstrations&_zs=ceDib&_zl=rpKp3 For The Newbies- Thinking about turning duplicate parts? The December/January 2024 issue of Woodcraft Magazine's "Top Tip" in Tips & Tricks (pp 16) has a really neat lathe duplication jig. It uses your own turning tools and all the parts can be located at the Borgs. Check it out!! Expand Your Horizons- Craft Supplies USA posted a video on using CA glue as a finish. Another option for finishing some of your turnings- A nice pendant turning article from the AAW- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Resources/AmericanWoodturner/Articles-of-the-Week/2023/Tapered_Pendants.aspx?fbclid=IwAR3-6_s7nGVLEWvSgj9xpaXmybwFANI6UeAqDATbON-6HZpEGIrlh_En8io New Turning Items- Couldn't find anything special but remember Woodturners Wonders is running a daily sale- see last weeks "Wednesday's" for the list. Everything Else- I finished up the height adjust table to help accurately focus my engraving laser. It does work. Had to add up/down arrows to the adjustment knob after the pictures were taken. Finished table- Laser setup. The drill press table adjustment crank handle is visible back behind the orange laser safety shield. Very difficult to access to make focus adjustments. In action- Last week, at the local turner's club, one member demonstrated making a Christmas tree from a fresh cut limb. Thought I'd give it a try. Took longer to do the star than to turn the tree. Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools- except the star which was formed from a ball integral to the top of the tree. Cut out with a sharp utility knife. Star has gold leaf. Gonna leave the tree natural. Sort of a "primitive" item. From Ron Brown's newsletter- Curiosity As a child, whenever my mother gave me a new toy, it always came with the strong admonition “Don’t take it apart.” I’ve always had an intense curiosity for how things work, and how they do what they do. I had to see inside to understand them. So, I took them apart. I’ve been like that for as long as I can remember. In high school, I excelled in my field of study not because I was a good student, but because I needed to know what they were talking about to satisfy my curiosity. I went to work with the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe railroad at the age of 19 as a long-haul brakeman. I had endless hours sitting on a caboose, so I read Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazines from front to back two or three times. Then I graduated to Family Handyman Encyclopedias, every volume, every page from cover to cover to satisfy my curiosity. Every new field I’ve entered is the same way; intense curiosity drives me to learn everything possible. Not because I want to be the best, but because I need to know everything there is to know to satisfy my curiosity. Enter the world of turning wood. There are so many different facets to learn that it seems almost endless and I love it! This is one field that I will never completely understand and that is why I’ve stuck with it for so many years. I would encourage you to venture out of your specialty and explore something you think you might not like or might be beyond your capability. I promise you will be surprised. Here are some areas to explore: • Bowls, Plates, and Platters o Kiln-dried wood, green wood, hybrid resin and wood, glued-up full-thickness blanks, segmented glue-ups, bowls from one flat board, bowls with defects left in, natural edge bowls, end-grain blanks, blanks from root balls, blanks from crotches, exotic species from far away countries, construction grade lumber, laminated beams, from tiny to enormous, just to name a few. • Hollow Forms o Tall and narrow, short and wide, small requiring special shop-made tools, large in diameter requiring captive hollowing rigs or specialty hollowing tools, vessels with openings so small that you have to hollow through the bottom, impossible hollow forms requiring trickery such as invisible glue lines to hide your methods, dyed and tinted finishes, hollow forms with lots of carving and texturing, you get the idea. • Spindles o Furniture legs and parts, wands and canes, pepper mills, fancy finials, mallets, gavels, gnomes, kitchen utensils, turned-lidded boxes, tool handles, lamps, Christmas ornaments, inside-out two-step globes, spheres, items with hand-chased threads or threads from a threading jig, baseball bats, I could go on. That should keep you busy for a while. Just when you were getting comfortable you discover there is so much more left to explore. You will never run out of new things to try. Every time I turn around, I find new challenges to solve and that is what keeps me fresh and drives me to invent and explore every new day God gives me to serve my fellow men and women. Thanks for your support and encouragement. Safe turning

  3. I absolutely love my new to me spoon bit collection, and a few other odds n ends, spur bits, drill bits, and they work perfectly in my smallest Spofford No.108 brace. I received these bits in the mail from a friend here on The Patriot Woodworker, I shall not divulge his name unless he wants to be known, but I just wanted to say thank you very much, this was a very pleasant surprise for me when they came in the mail. It was completely by surprise! So I inserted one of the spoon bits in my Spofford and bore a nice clean hole in a chunk of Ash, it cut very well and accurate. Larger spoon bits are coveted by chair makers, and these smaller ones will be excellent for smaller projects such as boxes and furnishings. I can't wait to use them. So, thank you my friend! I don't buy much for myself these days, our resources have been going to "other things" family related, and when something like this comes in the mail, it's very special, and the fact that someone here thought of me, is really really cool
  4. Sorted the last of the Ash scraps...resaw most of it down.. Sorted out for 4 slabs at the same thickness....ripped those to the same width...as for squaring the ends... Mitre gauge set to 80 degrees? 2 long sides, and a pair of ends....10 degree bevel complicates things a bit, though.. Guess I can't use this square...have another to use.. Also to lay out through dovetails... Gave an old saw another try... Jackson Backsaw... then chop out the waste... Trace around these Pins, to lay out the tails...saw and chop...dry fit.. Then repeat for the next corner....until... All 4 are done. Stay tuned, more to come...

  7. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The knife is a hook knife, great for carving out scoops and the bowl of a spoon. I read much about the use of these knives, and how to carve the Swedish Slojd method, it takes some getting used too, but the methods are very efficient and accurate. This hook knife is made by Morakniv, a tradition in Sweden, and the cost of the knives are very affordable. Here is a link to a series of videos by Morakniv and legend Jogge Sundqvuist on use and maintenance. The whole series can be found here at Swedish Knife Grip Lessons with Jogge Sundqvuist
  8. A really neat application by the Spoon Crank showed up in my email, you can put different components together for your spoon and the template will build itself. Then you can print it out and use it to trace onto your spoon blank. Enjoy! The Spoon Crank Spoon Template Generator APP.THESPOONCRANK.COM

This is Part 1 and the others are referenced on his YouTube channel- I've been making Celtic Knot rolling pins for a long time. Although the wood I use matches the pepper mills and salt cellars I make, I always wished there was a way to duplicate the knot in those items. Thanks to Alan Stratton, I think this might be the answer- Our sponsor, Laguna, linked this video on social media. Turning a coffee spoon. It incorporates multiple media and some cool jigs. New Turning Items- We mentioned these wooden threads before. Here's a short video, From Ron Brown, showing the steps to using them on a pet urn.

  10. The Spoon Crank is a global initiative looking to bring together people who share a passion for spoon carving. Apart from giving the chance to the beginner spoon carver to learn from the experienced and talented carvers, we want to enable the physical connection with the masters of the craft through a physical object. The spoon blank. The spoon blank is the foundation of the wooden spoon. We want to give access to what we believe is essential for a new carver to grasp. We want to give easier access to the fundamental and underlying geometry of what to become a finished hand carved wooden spoon. Source....
  11. I was goofing around today with some scrap wood and decided to make an effort at turning a spoon. I had some ideas how I was going to do it. I decided that the crude spoon I made was not something I'd be proud of. It isn't glued or finished and it is as far as it is going to go. I've seen some guys on youtube make spoons with elaborate jigs that required a lot of time and set up. All I could think of was,"Wood spoons are cheap, so why make one" I now know what a challenge it is. After making this one, I have ideas on better methods, but this is most likely the only one I'll ever make. I enjoyed it and it helped another day in isolation
  12. I've been wanting to try my hand at greenwood carving, particularly spoon carving. I decided that, to give myself every chance to succeed, I would need a bench dedicated to carving. I checked youtube, carving forums, etc and decided that a log mule/carving bench would fit the bill. It just so happened that my mother, last week, had asked me to remove some downed trees from her yard. Enter this weekend's project. First, stripping the bark from an oak log....... Then, it's time to cut the legs to size......... And then, the shaping begins. Doing this with hand tools only is quite a challenge (a Poulan is a hand tool, right?) And thus, ends the first day of work on the mule/bench.
  13. My dad recently removed some old built-in cabinets from their 1900 vintage old homeAnd salvaged the wood shelves and sides from them. This appears to be Pine based on the couple of knots I found, but, at over 100 years old, is definitely different from today’s Pine offering at the big box stores. The grain is tight and I love the color of the aged wood. I found that the age and dryness of this made it a bit brittle to carve but managed to make this. I just sketched it and chipped away. No pattern here to follow. I am carving for the first time in nearly 20 years so things aren’t going all that smoothly. This was a piece to get some practice. I am getting better again but slow. I plan to send this to my mom as a surprise during this COVID thing.
  14. If anyone is interested in spoon carving, the current online issue of Canadian Woodworking has almost the entire issue on ir. https://canadianwoodworking.advanced-pub.com/Vizion5/viewer.aspx?shareKey=LGMI7m&utm_source=Canadian+Woodworking&utm_campaign=8ebab7dd69-ShopNEWS_2020-07&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_490231050d-8ebab7dd69-78334825
  15. From the album: Spoon Carving

    I just keep carving them, they are fun. Sitting in the patio with family around, and I get to woodwork. Carving small items by hand can be a personal and relaxing time, and you can talk to the people nearest you while the carving is quietly taking place. The spoon on the left is almost ready for finish.

    A friend of mine at work gave me tree limbs that he cut from his Japanese Silk tree, and I found some nice wood in those limbs. Just finished this large cooking spoon this afternoon and put the first coat of "Tried and True" on it. My third attempt carving spoons from green wood. It's getting addictive.
  18. Dangit!! That's why we call it learning right! I'll hang this one up as a reminder.

  22. From the album: Spoon Carving

    After I roughed out my spoon with my hatchet, I clean up much of it with my Morakniv's, and now I am ready to scoop out the spoon portion with my Morakniv hook knife. This is it for now, it was getting cold outside, and my wife came out an chewed me out for being outside with a bad cold, but but but honey, nope, get yer butt inside! Ok. So I wrapped the spoon in cloth so to not lose moisture too fast, and set it on my work bench for tomorrow, I'll start scooping out the spoon bowl with the hook knife.
  23. From the album: Spoon Carving

    A limb from a Chinaberry tree, and some tools, a Robin Wood hatchet which I absolutely love. Several Morakniv's, an old froe and we are ready! The curved portion of this limb is perfect for large spoons.
