One is 5" in diameter, the other is 6". Both turned with Easy Wood Tools and finished with Yorkshire Grit and Hampshire Sheen Safe turning
  2. Snowing a little outside but tomorrow it's to be 70°! You gotta love Pennsylvania weather! Our Patriot Turners- @forty_caliber gave us a heads up on a very worthwhile endeavor for kids suffering from life altering conditions.

Really beautiful combination of species- His post has more information about the species and comments from our members- Our continuing topic of "What's On Your Lathe" has had a few additions.

( @Jordan Martindale ) Here's the complete, current list of EWT pricing- EWT Customer Pricing - 1-1-2023.pdf Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube woodturning videos from last week- From Ron Brown's Newsletter- You Are Unique You’ve heard that all your life. Good or bad, you are the only one exactly like you. But what if you are an identical twin, or have found your doppelganger, what are you going to do with that information? You are still unique with your own combination of gifts, abilities, and talents. There is a famous parable about servants who were given different talents in Matt 25:14-30 that would serve us well. The lesson is not how many talents each of us has but what we do with the talents we are given. You may have many more talents than I do, but what are you doing with those talents? I sometimes watched various turning demonstrators thinking “I could do a better job than that guy.” But he or she was the one up there doing it and I was the one with my butt in the chair not doing it. I used to have the same reaction to certain YouTube videos. But they were the ones showing the world what they had learned and I was the couch potato watching them do it. You might be thinking that you don’t have a creative mind or know where to start. I have some suggestions that will catapult you to great and wonderful things. 1) Consider an existing item. a. Make a larger version b. Make a smaller version c. Use it for something totally different that what it was designed for d. Add capabilities by adding some new features to an existing item 2) Consider an existing challenge like roughing down a spindle or a bowl blank a. Use a different tool to make it easier, faster, safer i. Have you ever brought a spindle square to round with a skew? ii. Have you ever ground your own negative rake scraper from scratch? iii. Have you ever made your own parting tool from an industrial hack saw blade? iv. Have you ever ground a miniature hollowing tool from an Allen wrench and fabricated your own handle? You’ve heard the expression “Don’t reinvent the wheel.” My suggestion is to take an existing wheel and make it better. Everyone has ideas for how something can be a little bit better. I know because you tell me those things about my tools frequently. Start today, and remember that wherever you go, there you are. Safe turning
  3. December 21, first day of winter. Guess I should start to think about doing some Christmas shopping... Please don't forget we still have about a week left in the Ward 57 program.

The post continues at- @Masonsailor decided it was time for a new mallet. He turned a real beauty! Check out the additional images in Paul's post. What’s Coming Up- Cindy Drozda is having a tool talk on THURSDAY DECEMBER 22. Here's the information from social media- Click on the above image for the link to registration. For The Newbies- Turners know there is always more that one tool to get the job done. In this video, Jim Rodgers uses practically every tool in his shop and the ones he didn't have, he makes! Jim shows, in detail, how to create some specialized tools. A nice video from the Woodworker's Journal featuring Ernie Conover turning some tops and yo-yo's. Expand Your Horizons- Although you probably have completed turning your Christmas ornaments, this article may be helpful in getting you started on next year's batch.

In this follow-up, Mike talks about what you should know before purchasing a set of thread chasing tools- New Turning Items- Not a new product but these blends are being sold by StarBond Adhesives- All of StarBond's products can be seen at- https://starbond.com/ Everything Else- No videos from Rick Turns this past week, maybe he is taking a well deserved vacation. Actually got to spend a day at the lathe! A friend is refinishing a piece of furniture but it is missing the legs. Pretty simple tapered pieces. Used Sketchup to get the measurement, story pole for the layout. Left some waste on the "foot" ends to allow for leveling. Working via text and pictures is a little difficult to get precise dimensions. And for the traditionalist, not one Easy Wood Tool was used on these turning- unless you count the awesome Easy Chuck and the Multi-Spur Drive Center Safe turning

This is a Facebook page. Facebook has become a popular way for woodturners to communicate and display their turnings. You can see some of the awesome turnings produced by the club's members by following the "Visit Website" button. @HandyDan helped out a friend by reproducing some chair spindles. These sure are perfect replicas! Check Dan's post for all of the kudos he received from our members- Although posted in our general woodworking forum, the content applies to all aspects of woodworking. @kmealy gave us a link to an article on pricing your work, originally published in Fine Working.
