  1. WOW! What a week it has been here in the Woodturner's Forum. Forgive me if I missed a post. Before we get started, please check out this post for posting your projects. We want your projects to be front and center in our forum and get the attention they deserve- Our Patriot Turners- @John Hechel is cranking out some awesome French rolling pins. He certainly has his work cut out for him. In his post, John explains his processes and some of his techniques- @RustyFN brought us up to date on the bowl and emblem
  2. I finished this Curley maple vase. It stands about 11 inches tall. I sanded it to 12000 grit, then hit it with triple e and the final finish was Aussie Oil. Once I finished this, it gave me an idea that I may try for another vase....
  3. Was going to wait til I had better pic from the good camera but decided these iPhone ones will work. The wood came from a lot next door , house site. I checked the labeled trees and two looked interesting. One a Chestnut Oak or American Chestnut and the other some type post oak. This wood came from the Chestnut oak. This piece had three knots. I turned it to completion and it cracked a little at rim and vase . Black CA stopped that. For finish I applied Royal Blue Chestnut Stains. Sanded that back (you will have to discard this sandpaper) and applied yello
  4. I turned this a long time ago. A friend gave me a piece of wood he retrieved from an old train depot that was being torn down. It was over 100 years old. It looked like it had some interesting grain patterns. I cut it up to glue it and was very surprised, it still had sap in it. I doubted it was that old, but was told than the yellow pine does that?????? Anyway I think I used gorilla glue to glue it because it will set in something like that. It did come kinda nice. Still wonder about it.
  5. Finally got to try a deep hollow form, not real deep, about 13". First time I've tried something like this and there is lots to learn. The laser diode I was using wasn't the best choice and it wouldn't stay in one spot. Because of that and my own inexperience this piece is just too thin in a couple areas. It won't get much sanding because there is a very real possibility of sanding through. Still, for a first effort, I've got to be happy with the results. I also know there is a lot of room for improvement, especially in the form and getting a consistent thickness. Anyway, here is my first effo
  6. Several years ago, an oriental shrub in my yard froze and died. It sat there for a year before I took it out. The dia was less than 3". I cut it down and noticed some unusual grain, so I saved the largest piece I could. I turned it down to a small vase that my wife keeps needles and pins in. Don't know the shrub name, but do remember that the small limbs hung over like a weeping willow. Sure wish I had a lot more of that wood.
  7. I was reorganizing some storage in the basement and ran across some pieces of copper pipe and the light bulb in my head lit up. Could I just use a piece as an insert in a vase. The answer is, yes I can. I cut a piece and put it on the lathe and polished it up, made a plug for the bottom and used a piece of plastic counter top to make a bushing/spacer for the top and polished it. This is a much better idea since it can be cut to the length of the wood on hand and no searching for and altering vases to fit. Any tubing can be used such as copper, brass, aluminum and stainless steel.

    Curly Maple Chest

    From the album: 18th Century Connecticut Blanket Chest

    This is the same chest featured here in this album, but a better picture I believe, with a few craft items I made, the two vases and the wood platter dish, with my wife's potter she made sitting atop.
  9. Looks like I haven't been the most on-the-ball forum host for the last several weeks. I've missed several posts by our turners and for that I apologize. Our Patriot Turners- @Pauley asked our opinions on the Laguna 1216 midi lathe- Check out his post and see if you can offer any help. @Kevin Beitz showed us a beautiful pedestal fruit bowl that incorporated an inside-out turning. Kevin added his picture here- Back in the summer, @RustyFN was working on a vase he was turning from a glued up blank. Somehow, I
  10. Just when I thought I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, I realized it was a long freight train heading in my direction... Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald Showed us a hollow form to which he added color. He received lots of questions and compliments about this piece. Please check out his post and see how he did this- @HandyDan shared a really neat design he found. If you have ever struggled with moving you lathe (or any heavy piece of shop equipment) this might just be the ticket. Check Dan's post for additional
  11. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier used the heat method to "recolor" the purple heart in his latest ornament. Check out Ron's description in his post- @RustyFN continues to work on the glue-up for the vase he is going to turn- See how Rusty plans to get his blank ready for turning- @Gerald is finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with his collection plates- See more images and what Gerald has accomplished in his continuing post- What’s C
  12. Abbreviated edition tonight. Life here has taken an entirely new direction. Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN showed us the beginnings of a vase he is going to turn. This will be from a glued up blank. Rusty shows us some additional images in his ongoing post- Last week we posted a bowl by @RustyFN. That posted generated lots of discussion on methods of attaching a turning on a chuck. If you missed the follow-ups, here's the entire post- What’s Coming Up- Please join us for the 4th Annual Woodturnin
  13. 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
  14. Thanks everyone for participating in the Christmas Raffle and helping us reach our goal. You folks are the best!!! Our Patriot Turners- @gerald has completed a gaggle of Christmas bell ornaments. All colors, shapes and sizes- Our turners had high praise for these awesome items- Check out the picture closely for a really neat idea for painters points. I'm gonna have to borrow this one! @HandyDan turned some "Inside-Out" vases. He also added metal inserts to make the vases functional as well as beautiful.
  15. Been working on some inside-out vases for a couple weeks. They're done. These are for my brothers and sisters. Next weekend is the family party and we will use these as the center pieces. I have been collecting some metal vases at the Restore and reused them as inserts to make them capable to hold water for real flowers. Most of them had to have their bottoms cut off to make them smaller than the bodies of and the tops. I fit each one individually to there respective turning. Some of them had a top that was smalle
  16. My wife does a lot of crocheting, knitting, etc. She keeps her knitting needles and hooks in containers that I make. She loves the exotic woods and wanted a new one that she sized for me that is about 4" high. I found some Purple hart and I'm not sure what the other wood is. I put felt on the bottom of the hole and under the base. She is happy, happy wife, happy life
  17. OK Ladies and Gentlemen, only 16 days left to raise $412 for our Gold Star family. Please head over to- https://raffles.ticketprinting.com/raffle/6605-Adopt-A-Gold-Star-Family-For-Christmas-Project-2017/ Let's make this a special Christmas for these kids! @Steve Krumanaker posted an absolutely fantastic walnut vase. He talks about the process and finish here- @Ron Altier asked a great question about adhesives. He wants to glue acrylic to wood. Currently he is using CA but was looking for other options. @Han
  18. Some may remember I posted pictures of a hollow form I was drilling and the forstner bit got stuck deep inside. Happily, I eventually got the bit unstuck and was able to continue. Even more happily, the vessel was dry enough to finish this week. Here it is, third coat of oil just applied. It will probably get two or three more coats before I'm done. Keep in mind, the oil is freshly applied so it will lose a little shine. It's about 14" tall and 12" major diameter. I have to tell you I was nervous, nervous while turning off the bottom. A
  19. I knew I wasn't loco! So folks do take a log and turn it into a vase!

    Carved Cherry Vase

    From the album: Hollow Forms

    turned and then carved with burn in on fold to add depth
  22. Here is another inside out turned vase. I used some brass components found at the thrift store and polished on the lathe. It is about eight inches overall and the wood is Poplar. Used a different window design but think a wider window would show the brass insert better. I got a small photo booth in the tools I bought at auction but is was a bit too small for this vase. Took this picture with the set up I have had for a while.
  23. Moving on to bigger things in inside out turning. This vase is 9" tall overall. The inside out turning is old growth Fir and the base is Purple Heart. The insert is removable and can be removed for cleaning and makes it possible to use fresh flowers with water if desired.
  24. I wondered what it would look like if I bored holes in a block of walnut, glued in Maple dowels and turned it into a vase. It came out nice and the dowels made a great design that was uniform in shape and highlights the vase. Deeper cuts will also change the shape. I have plans to use other woods, but it will have to be a round toit.
