    Pecan Platter

    Just finished this pecan platter from a crotch. Not very thick , maybe quarter inch. Tried Mahoney walnut oil for first time . This is an interesting utility finish. Does not look like it buffs out. Good for a delicate project and gives a flat finish, no shine ok maybe a little. Easy to apply.

    Wooden Pens/Pencils

    So i'm pondering getting into making turned pens/pencils. i have a lathe, but i think it's a little big for pens, and yesterday I got the Penn State Industries catalog, that features all manner of turned pens/pencils stuff you need to make these things. i'd mostly give them away, although if you offered me some $$, i'd say yes. so what should i look for/avoid in this? they have a little starter kit, including a little lathe just for pens, that looks like a good place to start and learn how to do this. i appears that there are standard sizes/dimensions for size of pen, size of hole in the middle. any advice or warnings? thanks.

    Multi Layer Dye

    Though I would give a step by step on the dye for this platter. Turn the platter back and finish. Reverse and turn the rim leaving center. Now for the dye use dark color or black and sand that back. On this case violet. after sanding apply second color , red. Now after sanding with more emphasis toward the center and apply yellow. oh there is a groove on the outside of the color to define the color line. Then time for finish applied before turning the center and more layers of lacquer.

    I Found the Last of the Scrap

    Many years ago I made small inlaid tables, plaques, etc. When cleaning up I found more scrap and will try one last time to make something again. One of the problems is tare out, due to the different hardnesses of the wood. Hope to finish it tomorrow

    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?

    Chip Carving Progress. or Not

    I have just about filled up both sides of mt practice block. I can see some progress but not doing anything I'd be willing to put my name on just yet. This is one of my early efforts. I had done maybe 10 sets by this time. Still pretty rough. This one is a iittle better and to my eye I can see some progress. Did this one just this evening. I would guess by now I've done at least 500 of these three corner chip cutouts. This is the best one so far. It's funny, I'll do one and think, "that's pretty good". Then, I do a few more and look at them as a unit and wonder, what was I looking at? There is so much junk and rough cuts. Getting better I think but still a long way to go. Steve

    Ornament Urchin

    This is an unusual ornament. The center part is a sea Urchin. We don't have many oceans here in the Denver area, so I had to look it up. It is one of those spiny things that looks like a ball with thousands of thorns sticking out. They come in many colors, but the shell inside isn't too colorful. I used it as it came.

    Humble Beginnings.

    This may not seem like it's turning related but it is. I want to learn a little about chip carving for embellishing. I have some boxes turned and ready but thought it might be better to practice on some flat pieces first. Glad I did, it's harder than I thought it might be. I am finding it's a lot like turning in that it's all about technique. This is the most basic cut and probably the most often used in chip carving, the triangle. Going to take a lot of practice I think. I can see some progress from top to bottom but have a long way to go. Steve

    Mushroom Ornament?

    I glued together a few odd pieces and turned them down. Much to my surprise it came out with mushrooms on it. Two right side up and two upside down Its only 2" high.

    Firewood

    My neighbor had some tree work done and I caught the cutters and asked for the river birch and the limbs they took off a live oak. Doing some hollow forms with the oak and it has some great grain and dark lines . this is just the turn to finish. Had to allow to dry a few days to sand well as the wet end grain did not sand well.
  12. I know from my earlier attempts to resize a picture with my mac, it is difficult to do when I used to be a windows guy. Anyway, this is my latest ornament and it features the unknown dark wood I am allergic to and some Osage Orange, yellow hart too. If it is still too big, I'll just live with it.

    Wood Cracking

    Is there anything I can do to keep wood from cracking? I was making a bird house. I had to stop and got tied up for a while. I went back out 2 or 3 days later and it had a huge crack. The first picture is when I was working on it and the second picture is after three days of just sitting on the lathe.

    Still Tinkering With Color

    I wanted to try using latex paint to fade from one tint to another. I used the multi color ply and some maple. I kept tinkering until I liked the effect and sprayed it with poly. The one thing that is missing is the wood look, but I guess if I turned it, it still counts.

    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
  17. 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?
  24. 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?
