This morning there was a strange sighting here in south central PA. After Googling many images and news reports I determined it was the sun! Nice to have it back!! Please don't forget the Patriot Woodworker's raffle. Some wonderful prizes. Help support your site! https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/forums/topic/22913-patriot-woodworker-2018-community-raffle-fundraiser/? Our Patriot Turners- Our turners have been really productive this week with wide array of items- @Ron Altier posted a really nice ornament that contains woods of many different colors. I can't imagine how he did the glue-up on this one! Ron posted more images and some information about the turning in his post- Ron wasn't the only one making ornaments this week, @Steve Krumanaker turned some awesome "Beehive" ornaments. Steve explains his design in this post- @Gerald is experimenting with some passive amplifiers for a smart phone. He tried several designs to see which was the loudest. His post contains other images and input from our turners. If you have ever made one of these, check out his post and give him your ideas- Gerald was super busy with other turnings as well Head on over to this post to see some of the other boxes he made. @RustyFN turned a gorgeous cedar bowl. The grain and colors are fantastic. Rusty got lots of great comments on this piece. @DAB finished up a replica of a 90mm shell to fit into a shell casing. He posted a little about making it, here- What’s Coming Up- If you are in the Atlanta area, the International Woodworking Fair is taking place August 22 thru 25. Our very generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools, ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) has their booth set up and it looks like they are having a ball! This photo was taken by Carl Jacobson. From The Internet- Patriot member @Gene Howe posted this video on making a 3 winged three corner bowl. I'm reposting Gene's link here in case some of you missed it. Easy Wood Tools posted a YouTube video by Tracey Malady where she demonstrate the use of the Easy Wood Hollowing tools. I think she bought her depth gauge the same place I got mine! Tim Yoder has released a 2 part video in which he turns some cute little mice. The second part of the video is linked from his post. These might make some nice gifts for someone. Everything Else- I lucked into this website from a link on another forum. If you looking for lathe centers, this place just might have what you need- and other stuff, too- https://zlivecenter.com/index.php?route=common/home Safe turning
One of our club members made a telephone amplifier so I searched and combined several ideas . The prototype done in pecan was not loud enough maybe due to thickness . The second done in Bradford pear is thinner and is the loudest. When I turned I left the tenon on so I could use it to glue into a backboard so it will not roll. Thought of maybe a flat on the bottom instead but that may reduce the resonance . So the last one I cut slots in and the sound is almost as loud but because of the slots there is a smoother sound.
