  1. I have a project I've been working for a while. Its been a bit of a challenge for me. The carcass is done and it's time for the drawers. I'm in a bit over my head. As the title says I need your input on tools and techniques to shape this drawer front. I have included some photos to help clarify what I'm trying to accomplish The first picture shows a practice piece of wood and the basic shape of the Block Front drawer. The Second picture I'm pointing to the area of most concern. This it where the flat area transitions to the curved part of the drawer front. I'm having much trouble make in nice clean sharp transition in that area. The third photo explains/shows what I what to achieve. (the drawing on the left). The drawing on the right is what I don't want. I want of avoid have small inside radius you get as when you route inside corner. I have also included a like video link to further help you under strand my goal. If you go to the 7:30 mark you can save so time.
  2. While transferring the links on our old website came across this site . Lots of good stuff in this one place. Around The Woods
  3. Praying for the folks in the Florida panhandle. I know we have at least a couple of our "family" members located near there. Hurricane Michael is doing a number in that area. Just a friendly reminder that @Jim from Easy Wood Tools is asking us to send him an ornament for the Easy Wood Tools lobby Christmas tree. More about this project can be found in @John Morris's post- Some of the ornaments all ready for the tree were posted by @Jim from Easy Wood Tools here- I've added some changes to the "Wednesday's..." format in an effort to appeal to more turners. Several of our turners are kind enough to add comments about the content and I really appreciate it. I just wonder if the material, I've been posting, is covering a broad enough spectrum. Any input is greatly appreciated and my skin is thick enough for serious criticism. Our Patriot Turners- @PostalTom is heading up the woodturners picnic, for the club, to which he belongs. Members make articles to be raffled off. Tom created several items using Easy Wood Tools. Looks like we have us a convert!! See more of what Tom made and his thoughts about his first "in charge" position- @Gerald gave us a glimpse of his workshop/lathe area. He certainly has an efficient setup and more than one of our turners drooled all over their keyboards as they posted their comments- @Ron Altier offered up another beautiful ornament. This walnut inside-out turning has has some special "body work"- Ron explains in his post- What’s Coming Up- Tennessee Association of Woodturners presents their 31st Annual Woodturning Symposium January 25th and 26th, 2019 at the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Franklin, TN. Check out their website for more information and a list of demonstrators- http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07efkgsokx87d387cc&llr=lgmecmkab&utm_campaign=regional&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Regional+Event+TAW+10+10+2018 For The Newbies- Mike Peace has a video explaining the various calipers used in turning. He demonstrates their use and some handy setup jigs- Expand Your Horizons- The Wyomingwoodturner, Sam Angelo, created a two part video on embellishing a bowl. He uses a combination of texturing, gilt and paint. Part 2 is linked from his Youtube page- New Turning Items- Woodturners Wonders has a new sample pack of their "Wonderweave" sanding screen. This is similar to the Abranet sanding screen but considerably less expensive. These 6" discs are Hook & Loop Sanding Discs - Package of 25 discs, 5 each of 5 grits: 800, 1200, 1500, 2000, 3000 Wonder Weave Pro Net .

  4. If memory serves me right, someone ws saying that they are having trouble cutting straight lines - (I think that is all of us). I think this also goes with cutting large (i.e. >6" diameter) arcs. A couple of things I can think that I do is: Line my chair/stool up with the kerf - my blades tend to cut more on the right side, therefore, I line my chair/stool up to the right of center - in line with a "straight" cut kerf I don't change the position of my hands during the cut thereby "eliminating" changing dominance of one hand over the other I try to apply steady pressure during the cut - changing the pressure will cause blade characteristics to change the pull angle I don't rush - tends to enable minute changes in direction without causing a perceived crooked line There's my thoughts - how about your tips for cutting straight(er) lines? Appreciate any input guys. fred
  5. got a couple huge hunks of wood a while back. Kept 'em in plastic. Turned one rough set aside to dry and the thing warped so badly that I am unsure that I have enough wood to take the warp out . I'm thinking of methods of re warping it back a little. Water hear band clamps an inner frame?? Any one tried doing this to save a blank?
  6. I'm like a kid with a new toy, the chatter (stutter) tool. While it makes a very unique patterns, I find that the finishing and colors leave a limitless variety of color and designs. This is my latest efforts. It has been turned down several times until I got the hang of the too/colorsl and the ways I can make it unique. Still have a ways to go. Can be an Easter egg or Christmas ornament I removed an old chuck vise and mounted it to a heavy piece of oak. This allows precise mounting of hardware.
