  1. Woodcraft has made available a free tutorial on using Sketchup. Check it out at- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/the-best-of-sketchup
  2. "Back From The Archives" I get asked a lot what's the best way to paint raised letters? There are as many different ways to do it as there are old machines .... I have used an artist brush, made a stamp out of cork, used a sponge, paint marker, etc. but this is what I've found gives me the best results. First thing is prep the raised letters for paint by going over it with a sanding block and fine sand paper. Then take a paper towel and tightly roll it up, fold it in half and tape the halves together, then flatten the end at the fold.
  3. When I decided to do string tops I did a search for information on how to turn one and more importantly the dimensions for them. Surprisingly there is very little information out there but our Charles Nichols gave me the best information on how to get started. After turning a few and experimenting with different dimensions and angles here is what I found works best for me. I start off with a blank 2.5" square by 5" inches long mounted between centers. I then turn it round and size an end to fit my chuck. I also hog off the other end to an approximate 45 d
  4. Inside out turning starts with a glue up of four sticks cut perfectly square and glued together to make a square twice the size of the cut pieces. There are limits to how deep a cut can be made and not have the turning ruined because the cut was too deep. One inch square pieces will be glued up to create a two inch blank in this case. When the blank is mounted in the lathe the first order of business is to turn the area where the window is to appear to the max diameter which in this case is two inch diameter or a one inch radius as seen on the right. On the left is
  5. One of my favorite blogger and craftsmen is The Renaissance Woodworker, and he has some great advice for the hand tool start-up woodworker. If your considering taking a dive into hand tool woodworking, read this wonderful advice, by a trusted source. Hand Tool Woodworking Instruction and Thoughts WWW.RENAISSANCEWOODWORKER.COM The Renaissance Woodworker is woodworking education with a focus on hand tool only construction techniques.
  6. Beautiful sunny day here in south central Pennsylvania. Even with the sun, the temperatures barely got above freezing. A sure sign winter isn't far away. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald received quite the honors this week. Not only was one of his turnings selected by the American Association of Woodturners as the turning of the week; they are also publishing one of Gerald's turning tips! We can certainly see why this one was chosen! Here's a link to Gerald's post. Please offer him your congratulations- @John Morris gave us a heads up

  10. These were all done with one inch square six inch long configurations. Anything that fits through the window can be hung inside for added effect. Some beads are hung in this one. Two smaller ornaments made from one glue up.
  11. Trained as a Fine Artist at the University of Maryland, twelve of Lora Susan Irish’s pure breed dog oil paintings have been published as limited edition art prints. Her art has been featured on the front covers of “Doberman Quarterly” 1991, “Samoyed Quarterly” – all four issues of 1991, and “Shetland Sheepdog Quarterly” 1991 published by Hoflin Press. Read more... In addition to Mrs. Irish's extensive line of informational products for sale, she also gives back to the crafts community by offering free plans and patterns such as this carving relief tutorial. https://www.lsirish.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Your-First-Carving-by-LS-Irish.pdf

  14. This time we tour to a pro website. Ed Davidson is known for his exotic yoyo's and boxes for them. This is a tutorial from his site on cork bottle stoppers. There are many more such tutorials on this site as well. These small projects are good preparation for many others that will give you enjoyment and gift ideas of your own design are just a step away from here. Ed Davidsons How to make a cork bottle stopper
  15. Sketchup (Trimble) has posted a new learning site composed of individual lessons that progress thru the Sketchup fundamentals. Currently the lessons cover the basic tools and Sketchup operations. There are also lessons on Rendering and using the Trimble Sketchup addition of Layout. https://learn.sketchup.com/
  16. Getting started I like to use a piece of straight grained wood wide enough that it can be cut in two square pieces and long enough to cut it in half and for the length of the vase. It takes four same size pieces to glue up a blank. Pick up the pieces and mark the ends. This is how the pieces will be oriented for the final turn. For the first turn twist the pieces so the inside corners face to the outside corners and glue them together. It takes just a small amount of glue on the very ends. Remember these pieces will have to be pried apart a
  17. "Back From The Archives" Hi Everyone, I was going to put this in one of my restores, but figured it would benefit those that restore hand tools as well. I had read on other websites about the electrolysis method of rust removal, but had not tried it myself until recently. I started using the method to get into areas of my machines that were not accessible with the wire wheel. It takes some time, but works rather well. Following is a link that describes the process.http://wiki.vintagemachinery.org/RustRemovalByElectrolysis.ashx The following photo
  18. "Back From The Archives " I have 3 handwheels that I need to restore for my Enterprise band saw. I figured I would put together a quick pictorial showing the steps I used to make them beautiful again. Original condition: As you can see in the pic above they are in pretty rough shape .. rusted, pitted, and any original old paint that is left is flaking off. First thing I do is use a handheld wire brush and remove as much of the dirt and paint as I can. Next I use a wire wheel mounted on a buffer/grinder and remove the rest of the crud and ru
  19. Guys, I'm a visual learner and was wondering, for a real novice user which one of the YouTube creators does the best job of teaching true beginners? Thanks Pat
  20. A half-hearted bit of humor has morphed into an idea. What does the membership think about a forum section with membership produced how-to presentations (videos, step by step tutorials, etc.)? You might want to refer to this post for further information.

  25. Are they segmented? I thought of doing segmented ornaments for a while but really didn't like the idea of cutting the little segments and gluing them together. Seemed like a lot of work. I came up with a way to do inlay which seems easier or maybe it is just because its my way. I started out with making a jig to run the pieces through the saw. There are two side pieces with a two inch spacer block between. I stuck the side pieces together and drilled a .25 inch hole 1.50 inches from the end and 1.25 inches up from the bottom. In the picture the block between the center spacer
