  1. It's been a busy week here. Not much turning but still in the shop. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier has really been industrious this week and wins the prize for the most posts! Ron is still experimenting with the UV activated finish he first mentioned a couple of weeks ago. He used it on this fabulous ornament- He describes more about what he is learning about the characteristics of this finish in his post- Ron also posted a question to our members about the Hut Crystal Coat finish. Check out his post and see if you can give him input on your experiences with it- @Masonsailor showed us his progress on his "tulip" turnings- If you haven't been following his progress, you can check out his thread here- @Pauley turned his Celtic knot rolling pin and it is a beauty! He received lots of great comments. Head over to his post and see what our turners had to say- Back in the summer, @John Morris asked our members about the Ring Master turning tool. There has been some additional information shared on that thread. Here's the thread in its entirety- What’s Coming Up- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools alerted us to this weekend's show. Click on the image for the link to more information and registration. For The Newbies- I accidentally stumbled onto a series of videos from Stuart Batty. These videos cover a wide range of turning topics and techniques. Here's the link to the video set- https://vimeo.com/woodturning A random selection of the videos available- Expand Your Horizons- Easy Wood Tools has a Youtube video demonstrating the use of their negative rake scrapers on acrylics. You can see why their negative rake scrapers have gained the respect of turners! Tim Yoder posted the making of a beautiful Crater Burl Bowl. As always, Tim's videos are enjoyable and informative. New Turning Items- Jerry Marcantel (Nubsnstubs) added a video showing/describing his tailstock steady. I think we mentioned this in this past but this video shows it in action along with some of the other wood lathe holding items. Everything Else- Mike Peace added a video on turning a natural edge bowl from a green log. Love those long shavings!! I mentioned there was very little lathe work for me. It seems this project has been 1 step forward 3 steps back. I finally got the inside of that spalted maple bowl turned out and sanded. Flipped it around the turn off the recess and finish out the bottom. The strapping tape is just for safety. Didn't want to put too much pressure on the punky soft wood. Just got the bottom shaped when I heard a "pop". Two cracks (insert a very long string of Navy language here)! Went ahead and finished sanding the bottom. Then tried to fix the cracks I'll need to do some touch-up sanding around the glue joints and put some sort of finish on it. Safe turning
  2. Our Patriot turners have really been busy this past week. Lots of great projects and interactions on some of the posts! Our Patriot Turners- @Pauley posted a gorgeous curly maple vase he turned- Pauley tells us about the finishing process in his post- @Ron Altier provided an update on the ultraviolet finish with which he has been experimenting. Here's more in Ron's post- Ron also asked for some adhesive advice from our members. He wants to glue wood to acrylic. Please head on over to his post and see if you can give him ideas- @Gerald is working on some bowls. Check out his post for more information and a picture of a surprise inside! @smitty10101 is having some difficulty drilling pen blanks. He has tried several methods and was hoping our turners can give him some guidance. Please check out what he has tried and see if you have any ideas that may help- One of @Lissa Hall's post has been revived and some interesting discussion is taking place. All about woodturning chucks- What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for more information! @Jim from Easy Wood Tools wants us all to know about the M.A.D. Pen Gathering Click on the above image for more information and registration. For The Newbies- Mike Peace has a nice video for learning to turn beads and coves- @Gerald reminded us that the Woodworking Journal continues to send out a monthly newsletter for the wood turner. Here's the latest issue. You can get it in your inbox free just by subscribing- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Expand Your Horizons- @Ron Altier wins the prize this week for the most entries! He found a cool glue-up for creating an amazing bowl! New Turning Items- If you are considering upgrading your sharpening system, here's a short video on what to look for in CBN wheels- Everything Else- Some time back there was some discussion about carbide tools. A common misconception is that these tools can't produce shavings and are merely a scraping device. Carl Jacobson recently posted a video illustrating that Easy Wood Tools do, in fact, dispel all the misconceptions! Also later in the video, Carl uses the new, thick black CA from Starbond as a crack filler. That stuff really works! Been busy here with relatives visiting. I did get a few minutes on the lathe only to discover more problems with that spalted maple bowl. That thing should have gone to the burning barrel! Found this on the outside- Some of that Starbond thick black CA for that hole- The inside is more problematic. A very soft, punky area. Not sure what I'll do there. Still have a bit more wall thickness to remove at the side/bottom transition. This thing is soft all over so the overall wall thickness will need to be a little greater just for strength. Safe turning
