  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 finished- Andrew also gave us a look at one he had posted previously and is now complete- Andrew started a conversation about beading tools. Beads can be made with a variety of turning tools, however, some projects are more conducive to a dedicated tool. How do you turn your beads? Check out the conversation and give us your ideas- Andrew also spent some time perfecting this sharpening techniques. He showed us his success on a scraper. He received lots of positive comments @Bob Hodge asked about making our own tools using a specific material- "Tantung". If you have any experience with this material, maybe you could pop over to his post and chime in- @Ron Altier dug up an older post that introduced us to the products of our sponsor- Easy Wood Tools. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. From all of the other carbide products on the market, @Jim from Easy Wood Tools should be feeling pretty good about starting it all! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to registration. Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. Sponsored by Craft Supplies USA. Click on the above image for more information. Not exclusively for turners but there are turners involved. Click on the above image for more information. For The Newbies- I make no secret about it- I hate sanding. Mostly because I suck at it. Here is some information to help us all improve on our techniques- WF0501p19-21.pdf Andrew mentioned he sharpened his scraper. He received several comments on different techniques. I found this article describing some of those techniques- https://turnawoodbowl.com/scraper-sharpening-bevel-angle-burr-how-to/#:~:text=Some people recommend a 85,to 60-degree bevel angles A video from Mike Waldt on the roughing gouge and spindle gouge. Another in the series for beginners. This is a replay of a live program. It is quite lengthy- Pens are really nice, well received gifts. I've turned lots of them over the years. If the pen is for an older person, as was the case with my Mom, sometimes they have a hard time holding the more delicate (slime) styles. A nice design for arthritic hands- Turned kitchen items are always appreciated. A nice article for turning mixing spoons- https://community.woodturner.org/HigherLogic/System/DownloadDocumentFile.ashx?DocumentFileKey=4ce49ef3-df90-46ee-a6a3-23b92152f2f3&forceDialog=0&_zs=ceDib&_zl=AcdW2 If you are thinking about investing in some Easy Wood Tools, Here is a short video on their use- Expand Your Horizons- Andrew's post on beading tools, and some of the responses led me to this web site. I don't think it would be possible to create these works of art without the aid of a dedicated beading tool- See more of Mr. Meyer's work at http://www.harveymeyer.com/ While Mr. Meyer's is the epitome of geometric shapes, sometimes mother nature can rival this beauty with the organic shapes of spalted wood. You may be lucky enough to obtain naturally spalted pieces. If not, you can help mother nature along- An interesting bowl project. Two bowl blanks make one bowl. A two part video- New Turning Items- You say you want to use wooden threads on that container you just made? But you don't have a pair of Thread Cutters? Not a problem! Ron Brown has you covered! Everything Else- The past two weeks of YouTube videos from Rick Turns- Woodworker's Journal post of Woodturning Monthly- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Played a little with a piece of the mulberry. The first turning didn't turn out anywhere near the vision in my head. This one is a little more like what I had in mind. I need to get better at centering the the workpiece. The wall thicknesses around the natural edge vary from 1/8" to almost 1/4". I'm still starting with a piece that's too "thick" to get a "flatter" turning and keep the natural edge. Safe turning and stay well
