  1. OK, gang, here's the deal. Whether you are a regular reader, casually drop by, Patriot member or a guest, you should know that every Christmas we adopt a Wounded Warrior Family. Last year, we had the privilege and honor of helping the Hine family have a most memorable holiday. Now we hear that Mrs. Hine is having medical issues. Please see the following post for additional information. The point here is The Patriot site is going to donate a large portion of the summer raffle to once again help the Hine family. PLEASE consider donating to the raffle to help the family who have given so much to keep this country free. Here's the link to the summer raffle- Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN has been making segmented turnings. He found an online calculator to help determine the angles needed to cut the segments. @Gerald turned some neat little vessels and then adorned them with pyrography and inks! Check out Gerald's post for more images- @forty_caliber posted his first turned vessel and it's a beaut! Please read his post and see all of the positive comments and encouragement from our members!

Video by Robbo Robertson. This is Part #1 with more parts linked from his YouTube Channel- Expand Your Horizons- @RustyFN's adventures into segmented turnings led me to several sources of information for anyone wishing to give it a try. Here's an older video on some ideas and jigs- products can be found at- http://www.segeasy.com Jim Rodgers continues his series on segmented turnings- If segments aren't your thing. How about a deep vase with pyrography and dyes from Rick Turns- Or, maybe putting feet on the bottom of your next bowl. Mike Peace shows us how he does it- New Turning Items- And, as it happens, a new item on the market for the segmented turning enthusiast- @forty_calibermentioned he just purchased a Longworth chuck. I found this earlier this week- https://buffalowoodturningproducts.com/products/bwp-longworth-style-chuck-12-24?utm_campaign=emailmarketing_114143166546&utm_medium=email&utm_source=shopify_email The folks at Woodturners Wonders now have a new CBN sharpening product- Check them out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/featured-products/products/cbn-dowels Rob Crosman posted a video covering some of his favorite woodworking "gadgets". This caught my eye as a pretty neat replacement hose. The video starts at the hose demonstration- Everything Else- Tim Yoder started a project that will take several months to complete. Aside from the turning, Tim provides useful tips on drying and information on wood defects. This notice came in an email today. Just passing it along - Finally, Rick Turns compilation of last weeks turning videos from YouTube- Safe turning and stay well
  2. A little longer post this week. Was away last week and didn't have access to my weekly list of stuff to post. Our Patriot Turners- @RustyFN posted a picture of a bowl he started for a continuing project with the turning club in which he is a member. Rusty showed us a picture of what will be added to this turning, during a future club meeting. Turning can be a messy hobby. Rusty posted some of his by-products- @AndrewB continues working on pepper mills. In this post, he shows us one of his maple mills assembled and finished- Andrew also gave us a look at one he had posted previously and is now complete- Andrew started a conversation about beading tools. Beads can be made with a variety of turning tools, however, some projects are more conducive to a dedicated tool. How do you turn your beads? Check out the conversation and give us your ideas- Andrew also spent some time perfecting this sharpening techniques. He showed us his success on a scraper. He received lots of positive comments @Bob Hodge asked about making our own tools using a specific material- "Tantung". If you have any experience with this material, maybe you could pop over to his post and chime in- @Ron Altier dug up an older post that introduced us to the products of our sponsor- Easy Wood Tools. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. From all of the other carbide products on the market, @Jim from Easy Wood Tools should be feeling pretty good about starting it all! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to registration. Click on the above image for the link to more information and registration. Sponsored by Craft Supplies USA. Click on the above image for more information. Not exclusively for turners but there are turners involved. Click on the above image for more information. For The Newbies- I make no secret about it- I hate sanding. Mostly because I suck at it. Here is some information to help us all improve on our techniques- WF0501p19-21.pdf Andrew mentioned he sharpened his scraper. He received several comments on different techniques. I found this article describing some of those techniques- https://turnawoodbowl.com/scraper-sharpening-bevel-angle-burr-how-to/#:~:text=Some people recommend a 85,to 60-degree bevel angles A video from Mike Waldt on the roughing gouge and spindle gouge. Another in the series for beginners. This is a replay of a live program. It is quite lengthy- Pens are really nice, well received gifts. I've turned lots of them over the years. If the pen is for an older person, as was the case with my Mom, sometimes they have a hard time holding the more delicate (slime) styles. A nice design for arthritic hands- Turned kitchen items are always appreciated. A nice article for turning mixing spoons- https://community.woodturner.org/HigherLogic/System/DownloadDocumentFile.ashx?DocumentFileKey=4ce49ef3-df90-46ee-a6a3-23b92152f2f3&forceDialog=0&_zs=ceDib&_zl=AcdW2 If you are thinking about investing in some Easy Wood Tools, Here is a short video on their use- Expand Your Horizons- Andrew's post on beading tools, and some of the responses led me to this web site. I don't think it would be possible to create these works of art without the aid of a dedicated beading tool- See more of Mr. Meyer's work at http://www.harveymeyer.com/ While Mr. Meyer's is the epitome of geometric shapes, sometimes mother nature can rival this beauty with the organic shapes of spalted wood. You may be lucky enough to obtain naturally spalted pieces. If not, you can help mother nature along- An interesting bowl project. Two bowl blanks make one bowl. A two part video- New Turning Items- You say you want to use wooden threads on that container you just made? But you don't have a pair of Thread Cutters? Not a problem! Ron Brown has you covered! Everything Else- The past two weeks of YouTube videos from Rick Turns- Woodworker's Journal post of Woodturning Monthly- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Played a little with a piece of the mulberry. The first turning didn't turn out anywhere near the vision in my head. This one is a little more like what I had in mind. I need to get better at centering the the workpiece. The wall thicknesses around the natural edge vary from 1/8" to almost 1/4". I'm still starting with a piece that's too "thick" to get a "flatter" turning and keep the natural edge. Safe turning and stay well
  3. We had an awesome snow here. Right around 14" of the light powdery stuff. New snow blower worked flawlessly! Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker has expanded his Lid Making business to include pieces for spice bottles. Steve shows us some of the work it takes to create these new items- Check out his post for more details- @Pauley turned a couple of spectacular bowls. The wood color and grain patterns take your breathe away! Please see his post for the images and the types of wood he used- @RustyFN was also working on a beautifully colored bowl. Rusty received lots of comments about his choice of wood and the bowl- @AndrewB is really having fun with his new pressure pot and casting resins. He continued to update us on last week's post with more images of some of his castings You can can see the updates at- Andrew used one of the castings to begin turning an egg- In Andrew's post, @Gerald gave us a link to some of his favorite color additives for resin. Here's the link to the discussion- Andrew didn't just turn acrylic resin this week. I suspect there will be some pine tar resin on his lathe after working with some wood his local tree guys gave him. See more images and his progress in this post- I hope you all are aware The Patriot Woodworker has added another sponsor- General Finishes! While we may be tempted to think of their finishes being used for woodworking, they have a woodturning finish, too! Here's a short video from General Finishes demonstrating that finish- What’s Coming Up- Although there is light at the end of the tunnel, some of "The Woodworking Shows" will still be virtual. You can get more information about the schedule and demonstrators at- https://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/?fbclid=IwAR39zWURThvLgnzTRqV9OAdVKFxNtR9qON_8bR36HupZ-GVNMR11oAjnQcU Highland Woodworking is offering an online course for photographing your work. Although it is directed toward photographing furniture, there certainly could be some worthwhile content for the turner- Click on the above image for the link to registration and more information. For The Newbies- Over the past month or so we have had a reoccurring topic about gouges and the discussion often centers around the choice between HSS and carbide. In this video, the author provides pros and cons of both types of tools. (Editor's note: The thing I have found in these comparison videos/articles is that the author(s) are often turners who have used HSS tools from the time they started turning. Many of them have decades of experience using the "traditional" tools. Then with a few hours of carbide turning, they render their often not so positive verdict. Perhaps the opinions would be different if they had the same tool time with both types of tools.) Expand Your Horizons- Maybe I should call this compress your horizons. One of the first questions, when considering casting resins, is how to get rid of the bubbles that form in the pour. Should I use a vacuum or use pressure? This video attempts to answer that question. Having had some experience with casting objects (cold cast porcelain) we found that a combination of both was the best way to go. We would vacuum each part of the components- before mixing. Carefully mix. Apply pressure. Looking for that perfect toy for the grandkids, or great grandkids? Tim Yoder has you covered- New Turning Items- Ruth Niles has a couple of new items on her website- This 3/8" three fluted spiral tap is especially suited for acrylics and very hard wood- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/spiral-3-8-tap/ She also has new mandrel adapters- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/mandrel-adapters/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube turning videos from last week. If you missed the Virtual Craft Festival this past weekend, several of the presenters' videos are included in Rick's list. Safe turning and stay well
  4. Just pulled this from a social media account- Cindy Drozda is having a virtual demonstration on gilding. More information at-- http://www.cindydrozda.com/html/Demo.html
  5. Here's hoping all our members along the northern Gulf are safe. I saw where Pensacola had almost 2 feet of rain so far. On another note, please remember to add tags to your posts. I try to remember to check but sometimes my memory fails me. Our Patriot Turners- @AndrewB has been cranking out projects like crazy this past week! His little elm bowl is beautiful- You can see his progress in this post and check out the comments by our turners- Next, Andrew posted his work on a bloodwood bowl. All did not go as planned as he describes in his post. However, the end results were quite spectacular! Moving on, Andrew turned some acrylic pen blanks. He included a video of his process in the post- Finally, saving the best for last here, he showed us a myrtlewood bowl. It is inspiring to see how far Andrew has come in such a short span of time. He mentions in his post about the inertia sander he used to get this awesome beauty finished- @FlGatorwood saw an item that is designed to sharpen carbide cutters. Check out his post to see the comments of our turners- We have a couple of turning items for sale- First, @Jim from Easy Wood Tools was contacted by a turner who has a Easy Wood Tools Pro Rougher for sale- Jim provided contact information in his post- Also, @FlGatorwood has some Easy Wood Tools cutters for sale. They are Ci2-R2 and Ci3-NR. You can contact him through our site- What’s Coming Up- This Saturday, September 19, 2020, there will be another Virtual Craft Festival. Get all the information here- https://www.virtuallycrafty.com/ Turner Andrew Hall is offering interactive remote demonstrations (IRD). Here's a little more information- If you haven't registered for the Woodturners Worldwide Symposium, here a way to save $10! Click on the image for more details. For The Newbies- Andrew mentioned in his post about his new inertia sander. Just happens that Rick Turns posted a video about turning a vase. In that video, he uses one of these sanders- Expand Your Horizons- I thought this was a really great way to add a decorative touch to a bowl. Although the author used soapstone, I would imagine many other "fillers" could be used. New Turning Items- Not new, but if you are thinking about getting some carbide tools here is your chance to save 15% on our Easy Wood Tools sponsor's products! https://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/Sales/8/Easy-Wood-Tools?utm_source=csusa&utm_medium=email&utm_content=ewt&utm_campaign=20-09-ewt-1 Everything Else- Rick Turns video list for last week- The only lathe work I've done this past week was turn 2 walnut dowels for the rocking horse I was kinda happy with the progress until I put on the stain Mimi wanted (not shown). I was expecting the pine to splotch but the white oak really disappointed me. I've stained red oak with walnut stain and it covers evenly. This oak had areas that turned really dark. It wasn't noticeable until I wiped off the excess. Even a second application made no difference. I guess that's what happens when you get free wood. Safe turning and stay well
  6. Congrats to all of the Patriot Raffle winners. We made our fundraising goal! Hope everyone along the east coast is safe and didn't suffer any damage from the hurricane over the weekend. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald Started a thread that should generate a lot of input. Sanding your lathe projects. You all know that sanding is my second favorite thing in all the world. Please check out what Gerald's setup is and show us your sanding techniques. @Ron Altier has been frustrated by the U/V finish he has been using. Ron applied it to a beautiful segmented turning only to end up with problems. Ron explains his frustrations in his post- @AndrewB Has been working on several projects this past week. He has been fighting a "wobble" problem with some of his turnings. We have been offering suggestions. Maybe one of you has experienced a similar problem and can help solve this elusive gremlin. Andrew also was having some trouble with tearout on a small bowl on which he is working. We've all been there. Maybe you could share your experiences and advice- It hasn't all been problems for Andrew, however. He showed us a really nice bowl he finished- And, he has pen making down pretty good, too! What’s Coming Up- Cindy Drozda has another virtual demonstration schedule for this month- Click on the above image for the link to more information Cindy will also be a demonstrator at the virtual Woodturners Worldwide Symposium Click on the above image for the link to the registration site. For The Newbies- Have a lot here for the new turners this week- You don't need a fancy chuck to turn a bowl. Mike Peace's video shows you how to use a Jam Chuck- In that video, Mike used traditional tools for turning. HSS tools must be sharp to give the best and consistent results. Here's a couple of videos demonstrating the sharpening process on some of the common HSS tools- And a couple of videos covering some of the lathe parts- Expand Your Horizons- Tim Yoder posted a video on turning a sphere. There are some jigs available to help create a sphere on the lathe but this jig is a little different. Carl Jacobson turns a beautiful maple burl lidded box. I really like the "lid pull" he added to the top. New Turning Items- Cheated a bit here. This is the set that Tim Yoder used to make the sphere. https://drechsler-wissen.de/produkt/spannvorrichtung-zum-kugeldrechseln-im-set-74-mm-grosses-set/ Everything Else- Rick Turns videos from last week- Not sure why it happened. In the past, I have used the soap soak method and not had any roughed blanks crack or warp. This one made a liar out of me. It's about 8" in diameter and maybe 5"deep. Turned with no trouble. Came out of the soak with no warping or cracking- Put it in a paper bag with shaving for a couple of weeks and when I pulled it - Three cracks developed. This one and another about 180° around the circumference and one near the bottom. I added the walnut dutchmans and am in the process of returning and sanding. Hope it doesn't end up in the trash. Safe turing and stay well
  7. If you have a Facebook account, Woodcraft of Pittsburgh is having a free virtual demonstration on finishing. It is today- June 13, 2020.
