  1. My shop is a small,15x15 area. No windows. I did clean up, a lot, before the photos. Don’t know what else to say...it’s small.
  2. I am just now becoming familiar with it. Does anyone care to educate us further on what it is, how it works, and why you do it? Thanks!
  3. This is the second prototype for our church offering plates. No the will not be spaulted like this, only dry oak I have. Hope to do this in green wood but may have to resort to kiln dry oak like Mike Peace did. Hope to be able to have the final form 1/2 to 1 inch deeper . This piece is a little less than 2 deep. this piece has a small amount of curl do church will not get it
  4. This is a series of videos from Fine Woodworking featuring Mike Mahoney. Beginning with tools and sharpening to turning bowl and on to other projects. Mahoney is a very good demonstrator with smooth delivery and vast knowledge on turning. You may find in these videos what your turning has been lacking. Woodturning Basics with Mike Mahoney
  5. Finished this box yesterday for a club challenge Saturday. Was going to do a twist all the way up but when I cut it in two They did not match. So will do two boxes . One has twist top and the next will be twist bottom.
  6. I wanted to try my new aluminum faceplate. I went to HD and found a piece of pine that had some evidence of Pine kill beetle. I've used it before and like the colors it produces. I made it the size of hole to hold/store knitting/crochet needles. I sprayed a clear finish. You can see the new faceplate still on the piece. I used a forstner drills to the required depth. I'll glue some felt on the bottom and the bottom of the hole. It's 5 inches high. I put a block of the glued up pine next to it. The Easy Wood face plate works SO MUCH better........sure glad I got it.

    Pill box

    This is something I turned out yesterday or our next club challenge. Turn a lidded box min of 4 inch tall including the lid. Had to take a break from offering plates so this is it. No finish on it yet.
  8. Got time with my grandson on the lathe for the first time. We turned a platter together and the I textured and colored it. Used some pecan scraps. He had fun and we do a Pen tomorrow. After he left shop shop I did a test platter for finish test with wax on offering plates.
  9. Today Easy Wood Tools announced a new set of Mini Easy Hollowing Tools to the world. We are very proud of these tools and I am sure they will be a hit! The thing we don't really advertise and you guys here at TPW should know is that @Steve Krumanaker and @lew were a critical part of our team in developing these tools. They both tested, critiqued and provided invaluable input into the development of these tools. They've had had prototype sets in their shops for several months now. We went through several variations of prototypes and came up with what I think is a great set of new tools. Many thanks to Steve and Lew, you guys are good!
  10. Turning colored plywood is easy, however it can have cavities, spots and flaws. It isn't my favorite, but I got some for Christmas and am making the most of it. I stayed with a brown theme on this one, not to much a Christmas color. I do not have much of this wood left, but what is left is more colorful. It is only about 2.5" long
  11. Well that say the imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Once again another manufacturer is trying to pull us away from the best carbide tools on the market. Checking their tool specifications will reveal that their tools don't measure up to those from Easy Wood Tools. Don't be fooled, buy the best! contact @Jim from Easy Wood Tools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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.
  13. Most everyone who visits this forum will know I have a youtube channel. For those who don't do videos I can tell you, one of the real rewards for a youtube author is when a person takes the time to comment and let the author know they liked the video. I've had some very positive comments and some, not so much. Well, I checked my channel this morning and saw this comment, from one Jasper Krumanaker. For the record, this is a gloat, this is a brag, and this is from a misty eyed proud PaPa. "I'm his grand child his work is amazing and so is him" Steve
  14. I made a comment on a previous post, and can’t find it. Whoever started the post had made some beautiful work on the lathe, and I mentioned it made me want to try turning. Then I asked about turning tools (Shopsmith ones) and it was mentioned to me that Easy Wood Tools is a sponsor. Plus I wouldn’t have to learn how to sharpen the tools, while learning how to turn. I’ma thinking my next present to myself might be a set of Easy Wood Tools, full size. Do we have a particular person/store/enterprise we should support? Or hammer the net, looking for a best price? Any opinions, advice, or comments welcome. Thank you.
  15. Several years ago, WOOD magazine did a project, a "wood turned walking stick". It didn't happen very often but this particular project just spoke to me and I had to make it. That's kind of funny because at the time, if I'm being honest, I couldn't really call myself a wood turner. My lathe was a shopsmith and I turned a spindle if I just had to. Anyway, I ended up making several of those walking sticks for gifts or personal use. I have decided to revisit the project and hit the highlights of it for the May demo for our club. It's a very straight forward thing to make except for the handle. I have a handle on the lathe, have turned it and done some shaping. Still a little more to do but it's coming along. Two things are different this time around. In the article, a compass is let into the handle with a cavity under it for matches, a map, or whatever. Those compasses are no longer available and I haven't been able to find a substitute so I'll just round the top. The other thing that's different is the EWT negative rake insert I now have in my arsenal. They are perfect for shaping the finger slots. Here's a WIP picture. Still some tweaking to do on this one but I'm happy with it to this point. The neat thing about this walking stick is, it's made in four pieces so a person doesn't need a real long bed to do it. One of the best WOOD projects ever IMO. Steve
  16. Our club meets this Sunday, I got demo duty. In the interest of spring, doing an easy spindle project. Garden dibbles. They're easy to do but also a good skill builder. Plan to spend a bit of time on rolling a bead and how important is getting the "V" notch right. Steve
  17. This is a present for my sisters birthday #81. Thought the blank was curly but not so changed the color scheme. More later.

    Spalted box

    Finished this box today. The bottom was not two piece till I turned the bottom off . So I added a stand. Box is spalted white oak and lid is spalted pecan. The finish is lacquer buffed with Maguires buffing cpd and then polish.
  19. To start off with, this is for a customer that wanted a darning egg to fix socks & things. Well she also wants to be able to hide her needles in the egg itself. So this is going to take a bit of ingenuity on my part and any ideas are welcome. I had thought about drilling a 1/2" hole about 2 to 3" deep in the wood to accommodate the needles and then use the handle as the plug for the hole in the egg itself. Assuming (and I hate doing it, "assuming") that I can get it to work, it should be a really great project. My issue is this, the customer says she has a bundle of needles about 3/4" in diameter. but my handle stock is only 1 3/16". If i can get a tenon turned to 3/4" or whatever makes it tight enough to hold in place, then i'm good to go. Otherwise I will have to make say a 5/8" hole to start then widen it to 3/4" with a chisel after it gets about a half to 1" in. that shouldn't be too hard either, so we'll see how it goes and what comes of it The head looks like spalted maple or box elder. The client wanted totally maple but the handle will have to be something else I think what I have here is cherry (old) but not sure.
  20. These are what I have come up with as a new project for the off center chuck. The colored rim platter is about 8 inches of pecan. Originally I tried to cut with point tool and burn the circles——not good. Tried several tools and found that my new Hunter Viceroy with a #1cutter works superbly with no tear out on cherry nor on pecan. Had to do something to highlight the cuts as they just did not stand out plain. Painted with acrylics then sanded the over painted area. Pecan one may get liming wax later, but for now has lacquer on rim and Watco on center. The painted areas were sealed with shellac. The cherry will get Watco over shellac.
  21. Ok it is over and turned out very well. For background our club has scheduled Jimmy Clewes twice before this weekend and both times the weather caused cancellation of his flight. Well in January 2018 I saw him at the TAW Symposium and scheduled again. Through all the planning and communication finally he was here Friday. We had a great turnout Saturday for the demo and have six new members for the club. Had a great time and all our video and sound equipment worked flawlessly. What Can I say I was responsible for getting that done with some help we made it happen and every time we do this we will get better. Jimmy did four pieces and we all learned something. Today was the hands on and we had 8 people turning . We did a colored rim platter and a scorched ash bowl with lid to be completed in home shop. Needless to say we created a lot of compost or bedding material. Yes everyone had something to take home to work on finish. Overall it would have been worth twice the cost.
