  1. The old Dogwood tree, outside my window, should be in full bloom tomorrow. Hard to believe when I transplanted it, from my parents mountain property, it was a single, spindly stick. That was 56 years ago! Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN showed us a beautiful new turned lidded box he made. He said this one is made from Maple. He certainly has perfected the flocking technique, too! Our turners gave him lots of compliments in his post- @Gerald has been creating amazing designs with his JaHo jig. His most recent refrigerator magnet is a beauty! Check out this addition to his post- More activity on our two continuing posts of "What's On/Off the Lathe" From ON: @Gerald provide a closeup look at his JaHo jig in action- You can see how this jig can create some fantastic designs. Check out Gerald's post for additional images. From OFF: @kreisdorph turned a gnarly piece of mulberry into a beautiful bowl- Kent also finished these beauties. This spalted piece caught my eye because of the shape. Years ago, an artist friend sent me a picture from a magazine. He fell in love with the shape. I think it was a hint for me to turn one. Alas, I have not done it. New projects start here- @lew was looking for some input on design and proportions for turnings. He used miniature hollow turnings to get an idea of what had pleasing shapes and asked our turners their opinions. As always, our members provided some excellent advice and suggestions. What’s Coming Up- Click on the images for links to more information and registration- This is a replay of the most resent Tool Talk from Cindy Drozda For The Newbies- Thinking of design and proportions, Lyly Jamieson's turning tip discusses the design for bowls, Pen turning is a great way to get into turning. Kits can be inexpensive and provide amazing results. Tim Yoder shows us how it's done!! Now for a little more of a challenge, Jim Rodgers turns a segmented pen- Expand Your Horizons- Last week we posted a shop tour hosted by Mike Peace. The craftspeople were making Beads Of Courage boxes. Mike takes a segmented glue up and turns his own version of a Beads of Courage box- Sometimes the most beautiful turning is not the most perfect piece. Alan Stratton explains- https://youtu.be/hx1qGGVvU-g?si=mSuL1RJNLd0YDMOu EDIT: Cannot get this video to show in published post. Link seems to work. A short video from Richard Raffan demonstrating how he utilizes as much of a turning blank as possible. Check out the unique parting tool! New Turning Items- Been really difficult to find anything new on the market. Maybe by the time the income tax return is ready there will be some new toys to spend it on. Everything Else- An excerpt from Ron Brown's newsletter on advice for the new turner My advice for a new turner or a student would include the following: Find a turning club in your area and attend some meetings. These people are a tremendous resource and are always eager to help. Start with pens. Start by watching some YouTube videos for instructions. Get setup for basic pen turning, a 7mm mandrel, some slimline pen kits, proper sanding grits, CA glue, friction finish, etc. Pens are quick to make, easy to turn, and provide an immediate sense of accomplishment. If someone wanted to sell a few pens to pay for more turning stuff, many folks earn turning money this way. Then make some spinning tops for fun and give them away. Turn a few bottle stoppers and give them as gifts to friends and relatives. As soon as you can afford it, buy an inexpensive 4 jaw scroll chuck. Add more jaws down the road or buy a chuck with a few jaws included. Quality chucks with multiple jaw sets can be very expensive. Save that for later. For now, just get a serviceable chuck for around $100. Turn small plates from a 3/4" thick piece of wood using a recessed tenon in expansion mode for practice. A family member might even wish to add decorations or paint your masterpiece. Now that you have a scroll chuck, practice making turned lidded boxes, goblets, and soup ladles for the kitchen. Try turning a few small bowls from green wood. Turn the walls to 1/4" and watch them go oval. Turn a few 1/2" thick to let them dry in a paper bag for a few months, then re-turn them to 1/4" wall thickness once they’ve dried if they didn’t crack or explode. Once you've done all that, evaluate your interest in turning and if you love it, like most of us do, prepare to spend some money (easily $500) on High-Speed Steel lathe tools, a specialty grinder, and a sharpening jig. Next, set about learning to cut with traditional turning tools and learn to keep them sharp. Note: You only need a few HSS tools. In the beginning, don't buy more than 10 total, and never buy turning tools in a set. Always purchase the tool you need for the job at hand. After that, plan to take some full-day turning classes and plan to attend some turning symposiums in your area. From there, the sky is the limit. Turning can be as much or as little as you want. You can learn to make shavings in a couple of hours. It takes a lifetime to become a “Turner”. Did play a little at the lathe this week. The largest usable piece of that wind shake cherry was dry so I put it on the lathe. The more I turned, the more defects were uncovered. Filled the cracks with CA and sanding dust. The colors are nice but I don't like the tiny splits throughout the piece. Sanded to 600 and beeswax/mineral oil finish. Safe turning
  2. OK, gang, here's the deal. Whether you are a regular reader, casually drop by, Patriot member or a guest, you should know that every Christmas we adopt a Wounded Warrior Family. Last year, we had the privilege and honor of helping the Hine family have a most memorable holiday. Now we hear that Mrs. Hine is having medical issues. Please see the following post for additional information. The point here is The Patriot site is going to donate a large portion of the summer raffle to once again help the Hine family. PLEASE consider donating to the raffle to help the family who have given so much to keep this country free. Here's the link to the summer raffle- Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN has been making segmented turnings. He found an online calculator to help determine the angles needed to cut the segments. @Gerald turned some neat little vessels and then adorned them with pyrography and inks! Check out Gerald's post for more images- @forty_caliber posted his first turned vessel and it's a beaut! Please read his post and see all of the positive comments and encouragement from our members! What’s Coming Up- With pandemic restrictions being lessened more and more events are being held. Many are still interactive over the Internet but I am seeing lots of in-person stuff happening as well.

Click on the above image for the link to registration and more information Click on the above image for the link to Cindy's page and registration Click on the above image for more information Click on the above image for the link to registration For The Newbies- More on using the skew chisel. Video by Robbo Robertson. This is Part #1 with more parts linked from his YouTube Channel- Expand Your Horizons- @RustyFN's adventures into segmented turnings led me to several sources of information for anyone wishing to give it a try. Here's an older video on some ideas and jigs- products can be found at- http://www.segeasy.com Jim Rodgers continues his series on segmented turnings- If segments aren't your thing. How about a deep vase with pyrography and dyes from Rick Turns- Or, maybe putting feet on the bottom of your next bowl. Mike Peace shows us how he does it- New Turning Items- And, as it happens, a new item on the market for the segmented turning enthusiast- @forty_calibermentioned he just purchased a Longworth chuck. I found this earlier this week- https://buffalowoodturningproducts.com/products/bwp-longworth-style-chuck-12-24?utm_campaign=emailmarketing_114143166546&utm_medium=email&utm_source=shopify_email The folks at Woodturners Wonders now have a new CBN sharpening product- Check them out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/featured-products/products/cbn-dowels Rob Crosman posted a video covering some of his favorite woodworking "gadgets". This caught my eye as a pretty neat replacement hose. The video starts at the hose demonstration- Everything Else- Tim Yoder started a project that will take several months to complete. Aside from the turning, Tim provides useful tips on drying and information on wood defects. This notice came in an email today. Just passing it along - Finally, Rick Turns compilation of last weeks turning videos from YouTube- Safe turning and stay well
  3. Just a reminder that we are about 2 weeks into our summer raffle to help offset the costs of running the Patriot site. If you haven't already picked up your tickets for some awesome prizes, here's the scoop! Our Patriot Turners- Our turners were back at their lathes this week! @RustyFN posted his curly maple segmented bowl and it is a beauty! Rusty received lots of positive comments about it. Check out the post at- @AndrewB turned a slightly different style pepper mill. The grinding mechanism is different from his past turnings- Andrew shows us his progress from the rough blank to the finished mill- Andrew also gave us a review of his new buffing system He gave us the link to this product in his post- One of our long time members posted his first turning. @Ron showed us the beginnings of a cane he is making- He received lots of encouragement and some suggestions on this turning- @forty_caliber poste a question about using the parting tool. Check out his post and see if you can offer some suggestions or ideas- @Steve Krumanaker started turning a tall vase from flame box elder. Looks like this is going to be a beauty! More images in Steve's post- Just a note here, if you subscribe to the Woodworker's Journal, next issue has an article about flame box elder- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/box-elder/ Steve has decided to up his game, when deep hollowing, and ditch the laser pointer for a more advance method of determining wall thickness. Check out his post on his most recent upgrade- @Gerald challenged us to post our Mother's Day turning gifts. Gerald's gift turning is fantastic! See additional images and our member's comments in his post- I need to start writing down the trails to some of the stuff for each weeks Wednesday's... I can't remember how I came across this video of Gerald's presentation to the Magnolia Woodturners- What’s Coming Up- A little something different from Cindy Drozda- Click on the above image to Cindy's site and registration information. From the AAW- Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. For The Newbies- We have been linking videos from Record Power on lathe maintenance. Although aimed at a specific lathe model, the information can be pretty much applied to any lathe. Here is part# 3Part# 3 of Mike Waldt's beginner series for turners. Again this is a replay of a live session and is kind of long. From the World Wide Wood Turners, a nice demonstration on various methods of holding a turning. Expand Your Horizons- Mike Waldt has something for the more advanced turner in this video- Alan Stratton's take on chasing threads Mike Peace recently published a video on the various types of spiraling and texturing tools. Within the video, Mike refers to links for longer videos on each tool. He also has a PDF article that can be downloaded at- https://www.mikepeacewoodturning.com/2019/05/03/texturing-and-spiraling/ IMHO, there can be no greater honor than to be asked to create a burial urn. Sam Angelo has a video demonstrating how to calculate the internal volume using some easily made measuring devices. New Turning Items- Robert Sorby Brand Ambassador Darryl Jones introduces the Deluxe Sovereign TurnMaster Box Set- The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a heavy duty compass capable of drawing 28" circles. Check it out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/12-inch-carpenters-compass Premier Gauges has some interestingly designed wall and bottom thickness gauges- More information can be found at- https://premiergauges.com/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- I had one last piece of cherry but it had some pretty nasty cracks. Decided to see what could be found inside. I'm surprised that I could get this much. Sill a couple of cracks that will need taken care of At this point I normally submerge the piece in the soap and water solution for a couple of days and then on to drying in a paper bag with shavings. Turned out my pot is only 12" in diameter!. I CA'ed the cracks, wrapped the bowl in stretch wrap and put it in my little drying box (ala Rick Turns). Then for the cleanup! Safe turning and stay well
  4. Spoiler Alert!! Valentine's Day is Friday!!! Our Patriot Turners- Member @Masonsailor continues work on his Lazy Susan Tulips- He explains what hes has done in this post- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- Cindy Drozda recently posted two videos on negative rake scrapers. The first video discusses the various scraper shapes and their uses- The second video demonstrates sharpening techniques for these scrapers- Expand Your Horizons- We have been following Mike Peace's shop made texturing tool videos. In this one he demonstrates using the tool on both side and end grain projects- If you are getting bored turning between centers here's a video, produced by Nova Woodworking, showing the steps to turning a bowl New Turning Items- For me, sanding is one of least favorite things about a project. I have been purchasing sand paper from Woodturners Wonders and like their sanding screen products. They have a full line of sanding products. This video illustrates some of those products. Everything Else- I finally finished up the library project and had a chance to get back to turning. First thing was to put finish on the spalted maple bowl that has been my nemesis for the past several months as it mocked me everytime I walked by the lathe. I used mineral oil and beeswax. Mimi will use it as a "bread bowl" on her dining room table. The pictures were taken using my new "photo booth" fashioned after the one shown in a Mike Peace video. I'm pretty happy with the improvement in the pictures. My school is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year (my 49th year being associated with them). They are having a silent auction fundraiser to help with student scholarships. I made a few hickory rolling pins and will add a Celtic Knot rolling pin for donations. I had a couple of pieces of walnut log left from my Christmas bowl making project. I really wanted to get better at creating hollow vessels. Today I played a little. I'm beginning to think I have to stop watching 1950's science fiction movies. Every one of my attempts look more like flying saucers! The little laser device came in handy for judging the wall thicknesses Not too bad inside- I did discover that I may have to move the lathe a few inches farther from the wall. The ends of the handles of my hollowing tools were hitting the tool rack as I was making the final passes inside, under the lip. Safe turning
  5. Here is a piece on making your own texturing tool, a handy item to have in your arsenal of turning tools .Shop Built Texturing / Spiraling tool
  6. The latest winter storm tracked about 75 miles east of the predicted position. We got nothin'. Sorry @Cliff. Last week we posted a site that sold threaded inserts. @HandyDan was curious about the installation. I wrote to the seller inquiring about specifics and this is his response- Hi Lewis, I send a tips sheet with the inserts but no real instructions other than to relieve just enough wood for the body and flange to fit snug and not to mix the epoxy until you are satisfied with the dry fit. The lid I make by gluing a plug on a flat piece that I turn till the plug fits, again sneaking up on the fit a bit at a time till satisfied, then mix some epoxy. I don't do videos but have a ton of photos in albums on the Facebook shop site that have cleared up a lot of questions on how I use them making out urns and Beads of Courage jars. Hope this helps, thanks for asking. Along those same lines, @Gene Howe mentioned he has seen mason jar lids used for threaded turnings. If you missed it, the entire post is here- Also, last week we posted a thread about @Steve Krumanaker's new laser engraver. Steve added another video showing the more of the laser's operation- Every Monday morning @John Morris posts the question asking what we have done and what we plan for the week. Well, one of our turners- @PostalTom was busy modifying his lathe set up for easier cleanup and use. Check out the pictures he posted and maybe you can get some ideas for your own shop! Scroll to the end of the "Monday Morning" post for Tom's pictures. Thanks for sharing this, Tom! Many of our turnings involve a glue-up of some sort. Patriot member @Gene Howe posted a link to a video featuring an ultraviolet light sensitive glue from Titebond. This might be something useful for your next segmented turning- I subscribe to the e-Tips from woodsmith. Every once in a while they post one for turners. This tip looked pretty neat as we turners usually have several tools pulled from the tool rack when turning a project. Here's the link to the video- https://cdn.woodsmith.com/etip/2018/02/lathe-tool-rack-SD.mp4 There are some turning symposiums coming up on the east coast. Easy Wood Tools will be in Atlanta for the Woodworking Shows next weekend- http://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/atlanta.html. The The Mid Atlantic Woodturners Association will be in Lancaster, PA at the end of September. You can check out the details here- http://www.mawts.com/ I picked up this video from the Easy Wood Tools Twitter feed (Thanks @Jim from Easy Wood Tools). The turner uses several of the EWT tools as well as their awesome chuck. I also spied another Easy Wood Tool product that I had not seen before. The EWT Live Center. Here's the video on making a VERY large pepper grinder. And here is additional information on the Live Center- http://www.easywoodtools.com/live-center-3/ Turner Mike Peace did a video on the various texturing tools available, including some shop made versions. This video is from a live demonstration and is a little longer than most. Turner @HandyDan sent me a link to this video. There were several really neat things that caught my eye (besides the fact that OSHA wasn't there). I thought the turners hand position, with his finger under the tool rest probably gave him extra control of the tools. The brilliance of the organic colors was unexpected. And, around 4:50 of the video, the helper uses an oil can. I thought at first it was for lubbing the lathe but I think it was something to apply to the colors. Thanks, Dan! Finally, The Woodturning OnLine newsletter came. One of the articles was a tutorial in pictures for making a suspended box- The article is by Bob Hamilton. http://bobhamswwing.com/Articles/Suspended Bowl/Suspended bowl Page 1.html The entire newsletter is here- http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php Relatives will be here, for a week, beginning next Wednesday. Not sure if I can get a few minutes to do a "Wednesday's Wisdom". Safe turning
