  1. Last Wednesday in September! Where did the month go?!?!? Our Patriot Turners- @forty_caliber Started turning a bowl from a piece of wood we don't often get to see- He tells us about the wood and his plan for drying, in his post- Forty also had a bit of a problem with a tenon on a bowl blank. He explained what he did to remedy the situation- @Ron Altier continues to experiment with new ways to embellish his Christmas ornaments- Ron tells us what he used and where to purchase it, in this post- @HandyDan continues his tradition of making sure new babies have at least on gift. Dan makes some really nice rattles that surely will please any new parent and baby alike- Check out Dan's post for more information- What’s Coming Up- Click on images for links to more information and registration- For The Newbies- Last week we posted a video from Mike Peace on using a tenon for bowl turning. This video, from Mike, explores using the mortice to accomplish the same thing. Expand Your Horizons- Turning a pen is a quick and easy way to make nice gift. If you do craft shows, maybe pens can expand your inventory. A video from the AAW- Alan Stratton added another video on turning a scoop. This one demonstrates an easier method than the others we have posted- Richard Raffan turns a natural, bark rimmed bowl- New Turning Items- I didn't see anything new here but Woodturners Wonders is offering site wide free shipping this week https://woodturnerswonders.com/ Everything Else- It's always a treat to see what Tim Yoder comes up with next. This one is out of this world- Safe turning
  2. Over the past several weeks I have been slowly working on a new workbench for hand tool woodworking. This is a learning project for me and I am learning a lot. At the heart of things I am finding that I really enjoy hand tool woodworking. I am also finding out that I am not particularly good at it which doesn’t surprise me much as I have never really dedicated any time to it or learned the proper ways to do things with hand tools. My saw skills definitely need work as I have never done anything with hand saws but rough carpentry and this is a whole new ball of wax. That said, progress is being made and I was able to dry fit the left and right leg assemblies today. They are square and the hand cut mortises and tenons are well fit for the most part. I discovered that i NEED a shoulder plane to really finish these up properly. That said, the little gaps from my lousy saw skills won’t impact the functionality of this workbench in the slightest. Especially after everything is drawbored, pinned, and glued in place. As I work my way through this build I will continue to post updates on the overall progress.
  3. Last day of August! Where did the summer go?!?!? Our Patriot Turners- Our turners have been busy this week! @Gerald posted about a novel idea for embellishing a turning. He describes the materials he used and how he obtained the neat colorization in his post- @Gunny posted this in the "What's on tour weekend agenda"- Gunny has these down to an art! @forty_caliber finished up a bowl he started a while back. The grain and color in this one is incredible! He explains the name in his post- @RustyFN posted his beautiful Calabash bowl. He received lots of positive comments and @Gerald was kind enough to post a couple of his bowls for comparison. What’s Coming Up- Hold onto your hats- lots coming up in the near future! A bunch from the AAW. Click on the images for links and information. For The Newbies- Jim Rodgers continues his instruction on how/why catches happen. In this one, Jim discusses the scraper- Expand Your Horizons- Mike Waldt turns and embellishes an ash hollow form- ...and a Yew lidded box Seems we have been really concentrating on making scoops. Another idea but quite different than the previous designs- New Turning Items- SWAT was this past weekend. Cindy Drozda took the opportunity to video many of the vendors and their products. She was live on several occasions. She has posted some of the material on her YouTube Channel. The link to her channel- https://www.youtube.com/user/cindydrozda Craft Supplies USA is having a closeout on a bunch of their products. Some good prices! https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/Sales/20/Closeout?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=closeout&utm_campaign=22-08-closeout Woodturners Wonders Weekly sale: https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/weekly-sale A couple of weeks ago we mentioned the 3M Xtract sand paper. Taylor Toolworks is currently having a sale on the product- https://taytools.com/collections/3m-xtract?afmc=17p&utm_campaign=17p&utm_source=leaddyno&utm_medium=affiliate Everything Else- Rick Morris must be on vacation this week- He didn't post his usual list of turning videos. Tim Yoder is always a lot of fun to watch- I've been kicking this idea around for a while. Usually, when I make a lidded container, I will use contrasting species for the lid and body. Some things like pepper mills are made from a single piece of the same species. Cutting the blank in half and then creating a tenon can cause a noticeable grain mismatch where the cut/tenon is created. I was watching one of Cindy Drozda's live tool talks and she described a technique that minimizes the material loss and grain mismatch. After cutting the blank, it is glued back together with a sacrificial piece between the halves. This sacrificial piece becomes the tenon. My first attempt at this was a miserable failure. The cuts were not clean enough to create a good glue joint. I'm thinking I need a way to ensure the pieces will look seamless when mated together. My next try was a little better. The first thing was to create a sharp cut with no tear out. I forgot to take a picture in my haste but I used a skew chisel to start the separation cut. Then used my freshly sharpened, shop made, thin parting tool. Also cranked the lathe speed way up to part off the pieces- I did not create a tenon. Instead, I decided to turn tight fitting plug that would be used as the lid tenon. Mortice in one end- Fitting the plug Glue the plug into one of the mortices- the lid on this one. Trim the plug so the two halves fit together- Carefully hollow out the insides making certain not to touch the plug mating surfaces. I did not spend a lot of time sanding the inside. My main goal was to see if the plug idea would work. Some sanding on the outside and testing the grain match- Had to play a little to fancy up the very plain shape- I think this will have a much great effect when used on highly figured wood. This was from a very old piece of air dried walnut. Quite brittle. Safe turning

  6. I was wanting a shop built tenoning jig and because I have a Delta Unifence rip fence on my table saw, I had to build a fence and a shoe. The fence is 18” long and the shoe is 12” long. When building the shoe, I used a paper shim (0.004”) to allow the shoe to slide freely along the jig fence. The jig fence references off the top of the Unifence and the shoe references off the jig's top surface. The mating sliding surfaces are cherry hardwood. I painted the shoe red to help remind me to be safe. I am getting reliable results. I used a 3/8” dia. router bit to make my mortises and a flat ground TS blade to cut the tenons. Through trial-n-error, a 0.508 shim results in a perfect mortise/tenon fit. The advantages of using this TS-tenoning jig over using the stack dado blade method are this jig will allow me to have one reference surface throughout the build, I do not have to have all the mating materials milled at the same time to allow having at least one flush mating surface, and results in producing smooth consistent tenon surfaces. I believe I will be able to use the jig fence with other shop-made accessories if the need arises. Thanks for looking. Danl

    Chisel Advice

    Recently did some mortise and tenon work and found my basic chisel set in need of an upgrade. Having my eye on Narex chisels for awhile I am asking for some advice on what type of chisel or chisel sets would suite my needs. These would be a nice upgrade: Narex chisel set BUT, what else would I need to do more work?

  9. Here's a good video on the subject. Note you could also just mortise both sides and cut some floating tenons, too. Or you could go to PopWood's site and pay $4 for the video. http://mycrafts.com/diy/mortise-tenon-joinery-with-a-router/
  10. I'm rebuilding a chair. The joints are M/T, with tenon bolts (inserted in parallel with the tenon) secured to a threaded insert. To the right of the end of the board, you can see a hole into which a pin has been driven. The threaded bolt (1/4-20) cinches up about 1/4" short of the pin. The pin does not act as a stop for the bolt, nor does the pin pass through the M/T joint as a dowel might. What is the reason for the pin?
  11. Well, the Christmas Gift Exchange list is out.....I have to find a present for my Grand daughter-in-law...... Bought about 25bft of Quarter Sawn Ash, today.... There are 11 boards in that stack..average width is just under 6"....all are around 3/4" thick. Hmmmmm, how about a Blanket/ Hope Chest build? Frame and panel? Or maybe a "6 board" style? been a while since I built a chest....maybe see what I can come up with? Give things about a week, or so...while the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up works things up into a "Plan" have to work around the snipes, though. grain looks decent enough....fellow did have a rack of these boards, so I might go back IF I need any more... Dovetailed corners? or, Tongue & Groove corners? Raised of flat panels....Bread board ends on a lid? Stay tuned..
  12. So this morning I've started working on the big poplar bowl. At this point I'm not even sure if Id be able to manage cutting a mortise into this bowl. Unfortunately I may have to go with the tenon.... Although I do not have a set of cole jaws that would fit this particular sized bowl I am at a point where I'm on a loss on figuring out what should be done. Only because if I take it off the wood worm screw and put the face plate back on it is far too big for it to fit inside the motor housing I'm going to try it with the origional face plate that came with the lathe but I don't think it will work. If it does I'll be able to get a mortise cut on the bottom but as of right now I may or may not be able to.... Any suggestions?
  13. Can't remember if I posted it here or not but a local wood cutter dropped off a piece of Norway maple trunk at my house about a month ago. Said he thought it was the kind of wood I like. He has helped me in the past and I have made sure to gift turned items to him for his help. Anyway, finally got around to turning a little bowl from a section of the log and I'm a pretty happy camper just now. It has naptha on it in these pictures as I'm looking for scratches and/or tool marks. It's drying in a bag of shavings now but I won't do much more to it except to remove the tenon. Don't normally leave such a small bowl this thick but with the integrity of the wood and the grain it just felt right. Kept this one spinning pretty slowly, less than 800 rpm but it was still kind of a nervous turn.

  16. Before I tried bowls heavily, I started with an oak glue up and couldn't finish it because I was using a face plate at the time and didn't even have the right tools for the job or even a proper chuck for that matter. Now that I have the proper tools including the chuck I think its down right time to finish this one off. I had completely forgotten about this one doing a little bit of organizing in the shed/shop I found it tucked away. So I did a bit of turning on it evened it out and cut a tenon onto it. I had to straighten it up quite a bit because it was completely way out of whack but it should make for a nice piece in the long run. Should have a proper hss bowl gouge by Thursday so I should be able to fully hollow this thing out over the weekend. New bowl blanks arrive tomorrow so I think I'm set for a bit on that.
  17. Okay folks got some issues here. The 2 inch by 5 inch piece that I got from Rockler the other day. I sanded off the wax seal off the wood yesterday. Today I started turning it. Nothing has cracked so far. Handled really well on the spin up. I went with the face plate method on this one. How ever this is my issue. I've got a good shape that I actually really like for this small bowl. Its simplistic which is what i like. Not too complex either. How ever if I cut a mortise or tennon in the bottom, that would not leave me with very much wiggle room sort to say on hollowing this thing out. I don't want this to be a wasted project, I would like to actually accomplish this one. I must say the walnut turned EXTREMELY nicely. The easy wood chisels made quick work of the square block and turned it into shape with the rougher alone. How ever what I am looking for is input and or suggestions on how I should complete this so I am able to hollow this out and call it a bowl. Not sure where to go on this one.
  18. YEP you heard it sorry for the double threads today guys but the first bowl is beginning to take shape. After I got the blank turned down which took a while, the shakiness of the lathe worked itself out. It will be interesting hallowing this one out lol. Sadly this one will have a flat bottom but that’s alright. I think I’ve stood up for about as long as I could today the joints are feelin it.
  19. I have a Delta 34-182 tenoning jig that has just undergone a repair. Delta built the slide lock using plastic for the gear like device under the lever. If you have one you know how weak it is. I removed the locking lever and replaced it with a 38mm wide knurled knob. So much better.

  21. Folks, does anyone out there have Issue one of Mortise and Tenon Magazine they wouldn't mind selling?

  23. Thanks to being in too big a hurry. Grooves off-center, tenons not centered or square. More cracks and gaps than a Plumber's College. Dug around, found a 3/8" straight cutter bit for the router. Re-set the fence as well Re-cut ALL the grooves i had made up. Then went to work on those tenons. Do have a few test fits going on. Will try to post a few pictures tomorrow.... HATE RE-WORK!

    I am tooling up for Windsor chairs and this craft requires a few tools I don't have. In the image are three tenon cutters, or for you UK folks "rounding planes". These tools came as a set, a leg tenon cutter, an arm-stump tenon cutter, and a 1/2″ spindle tenon cutter, plus one six-degree reamer and one 5/16″ dowel plate. These tools are specific to the Windsor tradition but of course can be used for a wide variety of work, I am beyond ecstatic to have these on my work bench, they feel great, works of art within themselves. They'll be a pleasure to use. Thank you Elia for making these wonderful tools available to us, can't wait to use them!
