My Clubs and Organizations

  1. I finished this Curley maple vase. It stands about 11 inches tall. I sanded it to 12000 grit, then hit it with triple e and the final finish was Aussie Oil. Once I finished this, it gave me an idea that I may try for another vase....
  2. Yesterday it was chilly, but the sun was shining in my shop (garage) I cleaned up the place and in the process, I picked up every scrap piece of exotic wood I could find. Some are left overs, some are old projects I stopped and the rest are odds and ends. I will make something out of most of it and I hope to get some more wood soon. I don't go out to shop much, but I do go when the crowd isn't there, very early in the morning on a week day. I go pick what I want and get out quickly. I can order wood delivered, but I want to see what I buy first. I have all my Christmas gifts made, so I think that if the weather holds up, I'll go after Christmas or New Years.
  3. I was goofing around today with some scrap wood and decided to make an effort at turning a spoon. I had some ideas how I was going to do it. I decided that the crude spoon I made was not something I'd be proud of. It isn't glued or finished and it is as far as it is going to go. I've seen some guys on youtube make spoons with elaborate jigs that required a lot of time and set up. All I could think of was,"Wood spoons are cheap, so why make one" I now know what a challenge it is. After making this one, I have ideas on better methods, but this is most likely the only one I'll ever make. I enjoyed it and it helped another day in isolation
  4. Three more segmented ply birdhouse ornaments. Probably the last of these for a bit.
  5. I have made dozens of segmented plywood Christmas globes for ornaments but had never done a birdhouse ornament with segmented plywood. I like the idea but this one is a little clunky I think. Will have to explore this further!!
  6. These are all Indiana hardwoods, walnut, maple, spalted beech, and cherry. May even be a piece of ash in there.
  7. Need a big coffee mug I can carve on. I have measurements. Wondering about the cost and feasibility. Thanks 😊!!
  8. This is a cookie jar I turned from a chunk of pine I purchased in Big Bear. We took a family vacation and I bought a few chunks of pine and I'm turning bowls and boxes for evry family that was there.
  9. This is the one that is off center and has some really bad places in it. I think my wife made, it At least she wouldn't let me toss it. The main body is pine and it did everything you wouldn't want to happen. I used pine because I was experimenting and did't want to waste good wood. The inside is painted black to cover all the tare outs inside. It also broke in two pieces. I guess as long as she likes it.......its ok.
  10. I turned this a long time ago. A friend gave me a piece of wood he retrieved from an old train depot that was being torn down. It was over 100 years old. It looked like it had some interesting grain patterns. I cut it up to glue it and was very surprised, it still had sap in it. I doubted it was that old, but was told than the yellow pine does that?????? Anyway I think I used gorilla glue to glue it because it will set in something like that. It did come kinda nice. Still wonder about it.
  11. This is my latest attempt at an off-center turning to produce an oval shaped tool handle. This was done out of ash. Be kind, I am still learning, as can plainly be seen.
  12. I turned this Curley maple bowl, two small bowls made from cherry and a small walnut vase for a friend that I served with in Vietnam. I burned the edge of the Curley maple bowl...started by accident, but thought it looked good.
  13. As usual the projects piled up right before Xmas and I didn’t get to a couple of turnings for presents. This is a pie stand. I ordered the glass rounds a long time ago and keep a few around the shop for making quick presents. If I have the blank glued up I will sometimes turn them while visitors are here. I have found visitors love to watch the turning process and these only take about an hour start to finish so they are perfect. They also use up the small leftovers of wood. This one is African mahogany scraps. The glass I get on the internet. They need to be tempered but that’s about the only requirement. The non beveled 14” are only a few dollars each. The beveled I use for special friends and run about $45. This one is for my neighbor. Paul
  14. I have a reasonably decent lathe that I bought most of ten years ago and am ashamed by how little it really gets used. I do like to get it out and tinker with it every now and again, usually around Christmas when I have some time off of work. I made some of these last year for the house and they were well received so decided to take another crack at some multi-species snowmen perhaps for a few gifts this year. Included here are Red Cedar, Ash, Mahogany, Hickory, Mulberry, and Walnut plus whatever the ink dyed toothpicks are made from. I used a mix of finishinG techniques. I claim only to be a rudimentary “woodhack” turner but the skills are improving and these are good practice and a bit of Holiday fun!

    Alien

    From the album: Turnings

    Thought this one looked like something out of a star trek episode so named it the alien due to its organic shape specifically related to the finial. The hollow form is Cedar with turquoise inlay in the cracked and small voids. The headpiece or Finial is made of Bradford Pear and has turquoise inlay as well in a concentric pattern on each side which was all turned and hand carved. Size including the finial is around 14.5"x9.5". Hope you enjoy as much as I did making it.
  16. From the album: Shaker Furniture

    Two front legs turned and ready for the rung holes. I turned these legs with my Easy Wood tools, a rougher and a finisher and my Laguna Lathe.
  17. I may have to make some of the fixtures I see here
  18. I think it is a challenge to make these things and also a surprise when I turn down to a different wood. I can't plan a design I just to go with what I have. I laugh sometimes and sometimes something special happens. Of course there are some that end up in my waste bin too. (You won't see pictures of them)
  19. This time I really had to look all my waste bins several times to come up with enough pieces to glue together to finish. I didn't want to have to make a trip to Rocklers for more wood
  20. Grooming something this small needs a jig so I turn the whole piece into a big jig large enough to hold on to. I screwed the Rook to be to a piece of 1/4" piece of BB. This let me hold it true for a cut on each side with the band saw. Then grind away till it matches the other one!! Used different wood so a little staining might help. I found something close. So I took it outside and shoot it with some clear to see if the color was still close after the clear Dried. I used maple and they had made the chess set with cedar. The lady thought only a few pieces with chips missing were all the set needed until the guy that got the set for Christmas let her know two pieces were missing... Now to get back to the End Of The Trail saga...
  21. I did some repairing on some pieces of a chess set before Christmas then the lady gave the set to a relative but he said there were two men short to be a full set. So yesterday I was given two men to go by.. I used all two of the knives and I could have used a few more but hey I don't do this for a living...I might have gotten more exact if I knew I was gonna get paid!!!!
  22. This one required some glue up. And then some more. The piece on the bottom is acrylic and has some gold sparkles in it. I thought about making the bottom spindle much smaller, but my wife liked it just as it is. She gave her ideas as I worked on it and she likes it. After 50 years, happy wife, happy life.
