  1. 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.
  2. 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
  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. 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

    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.
  6. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Got my new stuff put away and decided to go in a different direction on a piece I had started. This pecan bowl looked like a good candidate for a colored rim. First layer with black and sand off. Second layer is red and sand. Next is yellow sand and then touch up with red. Now for lacquer. Using Chestnut Stains on this one. More May take a day or two since the winter gets here tomorrow.
  12. Here are a couple segmented turnings I recently completed. First time doing segmented turnings - blanks were actually glued up by my neighbor and given to me to turn. Going to have to try some glue-ups myself someday.
  13. This is an interesting Russian video with a very unique tool
  14. Just got back home this afternoon from TAW Symposium in Franklin , TN. Saw Ashley Harwood, Harvey Meyer, Jacques Versery and Jason Clark. Had a great time and got some new stuff to try and ideas to improve my turning.......oh and spent way too much on tools and wood.

    Flying Top

    Saw this on AAW Forum and thought it looked like something Dan would do. http://abctoupie.com/en/toupie-volante/
  16. If you are interested, just pay shipping. And I'll box em and get them to you. Prior owner turned big bowls.
  17. For years, I had hoped to teach some of my off spring just something I had learned from watching videos, YouTubes, reading books and forums and it seemed hopeless until today. Yes, he is only 12 and I allowed him to use the skew chisel to put a couple lines around the handle. Here he is sanding. I am so sorry that I did not get a picture of him with the skew in his hand. First picture he is sanding on top of the handle, second is under the handle. Now, he is anxious to turn. I have some stuff for him to do but it will have to be dry and warm again. Steve
  18. In making my lift for the router I need a wheel that turns a small Lab scissor lift. How would I manufacture a wheel say like the Delta one pictured or something with some holes in it? Tools available are a lathe, bandsaw okay just about any tool but the skillset may be lacking with the lathe.
  19. Almost done with Christmas gifts. This year is a bell with a bell inside. Got the second coat on last night. Now to put in the bells
  20. This is my early Christmas and late birthday. Looks very solidly built.
  21. I am a self taught turner and have learned by trail and error, videos, books, etc. I have a nice assortment of turning tools and have learned to use all of them to achieve some nice turnings. However the tiny gouge pictured has me baffled. I have tried several times to use it and always end up digging or bending. I'd like to use it to make something but want to do it knowing much better than I do now about how to proceed. Does it require special rules? Things like speed, size of stock or just something that requires patience. A small twist of the wrist can inflict damage. Any advise is appreciated Thanks
