    Starting To Build A Tea Pot.

    Two woods grown here by my wife, Chinese privet, variegated and I thought I was saving some walnut but it turned out to be oak I had stacked there. The easiest way to get the log ready for the lathe is first put the log in the Legacy Mill to knock off the bark and kinda get it round then go to the lathe... I had to stop and glue up some cracks was the reason I am doing two at once, let the glue dry on one while I play with the other.... and again, this is what I am shooting for. Don't matter if it will end up close or not, just doing one with some carving and maybe a name?

    Scrap Wood Again

    I've been the scrap pile again, experimenting with wood and acrylic glitter. The ball is thin pieces of Yellow Hart and Bubinga (I think). The shaft is plain ole pine. I painted the pine and I layered the glitter in thick layers in the crease and allowed to dry overnight, then repeated with the glitter. It came out OK and I think I may have an effect I'll use in the future

    Haven't Posted In A While.

    Been working through a run of mason jar honey dippers. Local bee farm wants fifty of them by July. This batch makes forty finished and ready. Have about 20 more to glue up and finish. That will give me a few extra. Steve
  4. Two or three acres have been set aside for green wood and its there for anyone wanting wood for a saw mill or wood for turning.. Its all free. No help is offered so a guy would need a good winch and ramp for his trailer. I found this place after I stopped a guy hauling a few tree trunks and ask him what he was going to do with the wood..After we talked a while he said follow me and you can get all the wood free any time you want to go get some... Only thing helpful would be able to recognize the wood by the bark and end grain if he was to be picky.... Also speaking of mesquite pieces for lathe work. This guy is clearing land right now of large cut down mesquite trees about three miles from where I live...He is digging the stumps with an excavator and anyone who stops has been getting all the stumps for free. The cut off trees is about 2 foot tall .He sold the trees for fire wood at 3 to 4 dollars a cord which the guys buying had to cut and load their semi trailers themselves.. so now the owner is digging up whats left and putting all that stuff in hugh piles and burning it all...So I though if some one not from here thinks this mesquite is great stuff, just bring a semi down here and you might get to go home with a gold mine worth of mesquite....you also might get to take a few borers with you as you go or at least I hope so...

    Honey Mesquite

    A husband and wife team from Texas contacted our woodturning club, and they are going to be here next month, selling primarily honey mesquite. I'm looking for advice as it pertains to a new turner such as myself. From what I gather, they will be selling both dried and green natural bark log sections and prepared blanks. Is this wood hard to turn? Any advice other than keep my tools sharp? What kind of finishing looks good on honey mesquite, or just mesquite in general? If I get some green wood, any advice on a drying schedule? Any other advice would be appreciated. @Gene Howe, I know you are not normally a turner, but you also work with mesquite a lot, so any advice you have would be appreciated too. Thanks.

    Finish On Bottle Stoppers

    Been doing some bottle stoppers for my DIL Studio. Not something I do on a regular basis. I have tried Salad Bowl Finish and Polyurethane and not extremely happy with either although on some woods one will look good and the other on some others.. What is your Fav and why for stoppers? I like some of these after I applied Renaissance Wax.

    Provential WCO 280

    Bought some of these kits from a company named Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. They sat in a drawer for almost 15 years. When I pulled them out, I found that this company seems to be out of business. You suggested I call Berea Hardwood, and they did send some bushings and some Parker refills for the old kits. I have run into a problem: How do I install the refill? It doesn't seem to fit into the part I believe to be the correct one. I pulled another kit I have in stock, and the refill is the same as the one in the kit. It seems that it might have to be pressed into the pen part, but I am afraid that is going to ruin the point. Anybody turned one of these pens; if so, do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

    Turning Tool Deflector

    I like the carbon steel tools, but they didn't have a dust/chip deflector. Most of it hit me and my mask/face shield. My solution was to use goop and attach a super magnet on the tool. Then I got a squeeze type paper clip, (larger example shown) removed the outer finger clamps and goop a small piece of steel to it. Then goop in a piece of plexiglass. It is on an angle and perfect for deflecting. If there is a drawback it is that the magnet attracts other things too, but not much of a problem. I have magnets on all my carbon steel turning tools. The shield quickly goes from tool to tool.

    Colorply

    Wondering if anyone has tried making kits such as bottle openers , pizza cutter, ice cream scoop from color ply. My thinking is the drilling the end for the mounting bolt would not be as strong as solid wood. Has anyone had experience with this or have thoughts?

    Skew Angle

    I watched the video on proper use of the skew chisel (lew posted) and noticed how he had his sharpened with a slight curve, rather than a straight edge. I haven't see the curve before and it looks like a better way. I don't use the skew much, when I first started I ruined things, didn't know how to properly use it. Is your skew edge curved?
  11. You guys helped me find pen parts from Berea Hardwoods, Now, if instructs says to press parts into wooden pen parts, do you use super glue on them?

    New Modern Turning Apron

    My wife surprised me with a brand new leather turning coat. A modern design with a smart phone pocket with flap cover. Velcro behind the neck fastener and expandable straps in the rear. Fits nice and works great NO, I didn't tell her
  13. some gozillion years ago I was given a twin state Sgt Welsh rotary vein vacuum pump that fell of a truck. No really it fell off the truck & got damaged ( just the belt shroud) but there was an insurance claim and this one was unclaimed so the shipper gave it to me. And a decade or so later I'm finally trying to put it to use. I got a small air tank and welded bungs to it so I can run 1" piping to it. It is the vacuum reservoir in case of power failure. Then mounted it and the pump together around a corner on the other side of a wall and ran 1" copper to the lathe with a parker needle valve and a vacuum gauge and LOOKY MA I can hold a great vacuum and even lower the hold to what ever HG I want with the needle valve . AND When I shut it off it holds the vacuum for a good long time. The reason for the large piping is over a long run ya gotta have a big pipe a small one just doesn't work well

    I've Been In The Scraps Again

    I hate to toss scraps of exotic wood and usually find some use for it. I just kept goofing with the pieces and glueing. I ended out with that block that I turned to what you see

    Need Help With Pen Kits

    About 15 yrs ago, I bought about 100 pen kits, all different kinds, from Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. I finally got around to wanting to make some pens, but I do not have instructions for any of them. Has anybody heard from this company lately? I can't find them on the internet, and Wood Craft Supplies has not wanted to help me with the problem. The particular kit I am trying to work with is WCO 280 Provential Twist Pen. Anybody got any instructions or know where I can obtain them? There is a long list of kits on Woodcraft.com, but they do not show pics unless you click on each one, and it looks like there must be 100 different kits! Thanks!

    sphere within a sphere

    any one know of a good instructional on this? Some would call it Chinese Balls . I know it's possible there are even special tools for it that look weird but the only way I could pull it off is the band saw box trick where a thin kerf becomes a reassembly glueline.

    Experimenting With Epoxy

    I got some ideas about using 5 minute epoxy and glitter. I made some mistakes, but learned a lot in the process. You can see the upper ring. It looked really good until I tried something else to smooth it. I think I am going to try again, I have a couple more things I want to try
  19. yup I got some ideas about bending and turning. . First though is a big bowl I started and then put away to dry and it warped so badly that I can't turn it right. So I'm going to try to unwarp it. The box is huge 24" on the side but it's knock down the clamps are just so I can carry it around to get some paint on it. The paint is just so i can see my magic marker well . HERE it is collapsed for storage

    chopping block bowl

    This is truly a magnificent bowl, there is so much waste of wood. I saw a video where a guy used a curved cutter to remove and save the center wood to make smaller bowls.

    The second cryptex

    This is the second cryptex I've finished. I re wrote the border file and I like this look much better. This one is a five ring code as I'm going to use it for the demo at our next meeting of the NorthEast Indiana Turners and Chiselers(NEITC). Anyone care to guess what is the code?? The first one actually works smoother, I didn't dry fit the rings before gluing it up and I should have. Oh well, someone said in another thread, it's how we grow. Steve

    Awesome Turning Video

    Blank prep

    This is what I have worked on since Tuesday . This is only two cut off a beech log about 20 foot long. Then there was little cherry and what we think may be hickory. Then I did a first turn on a cherry vase. Plan is to carve this vase to look like a flower bloom
