  1. As part of my screwing around with the lathe I wanted to turn some drawer knobs. Not only for the experience, but because I wanted some for my shop cabinets. So I searched up a quick "knob turning" set of instructions, this one from Wood Magazine, and tried it out. First step, make a screw chuck. mine is in the pic and turned out much as they directed. Then I mounted a 1 7/8" square x 1 1/8" thick blank (cherry) and set out to make a knob. But the blank comes off the chuck. Not unscrewed, but at first the screwed tore the hole out and the blank fell off. I drilled a much smaller hole on the opposite (this is practice) side and tried again. Same result, although the blank appeared to be secured quite tightly to the chuck. I was taking very light cuts, first with a carbide rougher, then switched to a small spindle gouge for the second attempt. The screw I used is a #8, and it protrudes from the chuck by 1/2". I'm trying to turn face grain knobs which does bring up another question. Wood said to round the face grain blank using a spindle roughing gouge...I thought that was a big no-no. Roughing gouges and faceplate turning are bad juju. Back to my question, how do I make a screw chuck to turn knobs.....at this point the Wood instructions seem to be suspect. Do I just need a bigger screw in my chuck?

    New box

    This one I 5.5” in diameter and 4” tall. This is from some of the kiln dried maple I got. I bought some new flock and used blue on this one.
  3. There is a guy in a facebook group I belong to who has been posting pictures of birds he's turned, I'm sure Lew knows who I'm talking about. They are kind of stylized and I can't say they really like any real bird I've ever seen. Even so, they caught my eye and I wanted to try doing some. These are on a sycamore limb. Birds are spalted maple the beaks are ebony.
  4. This is my first basket illusion.
  5. Hays county pecan crotch with fiddleback grain. This is the only surviving crotch blank out of the truck load. The other half of this had too many bark inclusions to salvage. Kiln dried to >5% moisture content before 2nd turning. Had some metallic enameled medallions made up to "sign" my work going forward. Walnut oil as sanding sealer. Sanded to 400, round of Acks, then Danish Oil. .40

    My wife wanted a pumpkin to hold large mason jar style candles. I turned this for her out of a piece of walnut. She was going to paint it but said she likes it better without paint.
  7. Turned this last evening, sanded down to 400 grit and finished with briwax.
  8. Twice turned. Hays County pecan. Walnut oil as sanding sealer, Danish Oil finish. .40

    I got some mulberry from a friend.
  10. Twice turned pecan bowl with ogee profile. ~9 1/2 x 3 finished size. The piece of wood was particularly hard to cut. Earned the "pecancrete" moniker. Very prone to tearout and raised grain fuzzies. Walnut oil used as cutting oil for finish cuts and as sanding sealer solved this problem instantly. Kiln dried, moisture content 7.5% Sanded to 320 followed by Acks sanding pastes. Danish Oil for final finish. Burnished to set finish. .40
  11. 10" diameter bread service platter. Twice turned pecan. Kiln dried. Elevated ogee foot.. .40
  12. I finished this Plant Pot made from Walnut, Red Oak and Maple as well as this Maple bowl today. ~ Nevin
  13. Sapele shaving brush. Finished with Acks and DO. 30mm Silver Tip Badger knot. Largest brush in the cabinet has been a 28mm Kent. This one is about 25% larger. .40
  14. Obeche bowl ~3x6. Finished with Ack's and Odie's. .40
  15. 7.5x2. Burnt with a torch, wire bushed, ebonized, embellishing wax, rattle can glaze. Turned from an ash crotch found in a firewood pile. There were lots of cracks and repairs needed after drying making this particular piece of wood a candidate for the rough treatment above. .40
  16. Got addicted to making pens when I got my Shopsmith. Don't recall seeing many on here so was wondering if anybody else has had to deal with the pen turning addiction. This one was for a swap on another site. Had to be made with construction grade pine as the main ingredient. The dark wood is cocobolo. I think. Got over this obsession when I acquired my Ringmaster and headed off down that rabbit hole.
  17. 10 x 3 pecan spalted pecan bowl. .40
  18. This plate has been hanging around for a while and started out as just a test of spiraling. There was a cut in the tenon and I did not think it was salvageable. Finish is lacquer. o last week I decided ti try again. and changed the spiral and added Gilding Waxes. It is small at 7 inches but was a fun piece.
  19. 6 x 2 3/4 pecan bowl. Finished turned on the new lathe. .40
  20. Finished 2nd turning on this one earlier today. 9x4 inches.
  21. Turned a carver's mallet from some osage orange that was sent to me by a friend. OO is known as Bois D'arc in these parts and pronounced BO-DARK in Texan. .40
  22. 7.5 x 3 spalted pecan bowl. Finished with General Finishes Georgian Cherry, Ack's Paste and Odie's

    Seed Dibber

    With spring coming, a seed dibber is a useful, quick little project.
  24. 7x4 pecan bowl 1st up out of the kiln. Finished with Ack's and Odie's. .40
  25. I few weeks ago I asked if anyone might know what kind of wood this was. We kind of decided it was a myrtle/sycamore of some kind. I cut that log into 4 blanks. I've managed to lose one of them on a shelf somewhere in the shop. I rough-turned one of the three remaining blanks this morning. Any further ideas on the species seeing the grain and coloring? Whatever kind of wood it is, it was a pleasure to turn. Very easy to cut. Had a crisp clean spring woods smell to it. .40
