  1. Finally a day without rain! Too bad I had to spend it indoors. Our Patriot Turners- @HandyDan created the most awesome miniature cremation urn for a friend. Dan certainly has a talent for making the most personalized gifts. Check out Dan's post to see why he made this particular item- @Steve Krumanaker made a couple of walking sticks, that we featured a couple Wednesdays ago. Steve produced 3 videos of the turning/construction processes. We posted the videos in the Turner's Forum but in case you missed them, here's a link- @Gerald was kind enough to give us all a heads up on an AAW resource. A lot of the Association of American Woodturners resources require a subscription/membership. This particular one is free to everyone with very few limitations. In last weeks, "Wednesday's..." @Gerald posted pictures of a "turning" tool he is repairing. If you turn a lot of projects from logs. This gem comes in really handy! What’s Coming Up- Click on the above image for the link to more information. For The Newbies- Turned pens are always a nice gift and they are not difficult to make, although they do require a few extra "accessories". Here's a 2 part video from Tim Yoder making a not-so-ordinary pen from a laser cut kit. The second part is linked from Tim's YouTube channel. Expand Your Horizons- Mike Peace shows us how to create a natural edge winged bowl. It sure came out beautifully. Watch you knuckles!!! New Turning Items- Our very generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ), has a new product! The EWT Wire Burning Kit!!! Here's a video from Carl Jacobson demonstrating it! So Cool!!! Everything Else- Rick Turns put up his list of April YouTube turning videos- Safe turning
  2. Our resident YouTube super star has posted videos of his walking stick creation. This 3 part epic shows us how he turned the handle as well as all the other parts. Thanks @Steve Krumanaker for making this available!
  3. First of May already. I am so ready for warm weather. Our Patriot Turners- Lots of cool activity this week by our turners! @Jim from Easy Wood Tools was so impressed with @HandyDan's inside out cross project that he created a PDF instruction set. Jim was kind enough to post it for all of us to use. Thanks Dan for the original post- The PDF can be downloaded from Jim's post, here- There was a discussion generated from last week's "Wednesday's..." post about the skew chisel by @Mijohnson1984. @Gerald was kind enough to search out and post a great video, by Allan Batty, on using the skew. @Steve Krumanaker posted his finished walking sticks. These are real beauties and should be a "me to" project for many of the folks in his turning club- Steve also shared with us a very personal account from his YouTube channel. You gotta love grandkids! What’s Coming Up- I received an update from the Mid Atlantic Woodturners group about their fall symposium. One of the demonstrators will be Trent Bosch. Many of our turners don't do FaceBook so I copied the notification- More information and registration can be found at- http://www.mawts.com/?fbclid=IwAR386ELIjYYu_lM9fE3q3lAIbXkCP4e5sYthfOIgIOMPohzougBu9qJFawg For The Newbies- Tim Yoder has uploaded a video of a cute little turning that can be created with basic tools and turning skills. The turning would make a neat gift for the summer picnic table- Expand Your Horizons- Carl Jacobson's turned vase video with inlay and epoxy finish demonstrates a neat way to add interesting detail to what might be an otherwise less than spectacular piece of wood. Carl also uses a finish that will really protect the piece. New Turning Items- Recently, one of the hybrid blank turners, who uses Easy Wood Tools, has started a new market place. Bradley McCalister's Spiracraft has a full line of Easy Wood Tools as well as a wide variety of materials for creating hybrid blanks. Check out his website at- https://spiracraft.com/ Everything Else- I'm finally getting the finish on the cherry bowl I mentioned last week. Finishing is my achilles heel- especially film finishes. Anyway, the inside is done and the outside will probably take a couple more goes of poly. I left all of the natural defects in the piece. This bowl will go the the lady who cuts my hair. The cherry log was her father's but he passed away before he had a chance to turn it. Safe turning.
  4. Moving along with the demo prep. Have two sticks completed and my demo routine pretty will figured out. I have to make one more stick to leave in component form and then probably a few components in different stages of completion in case of a severe catch or other catastrophe. I'd forgotten what a nice project this stick is. These two will eventually be gifted to a soon to be retired neighbor and his wife. Bruce is a good friend, and more importantly, a licensed electrician . He and I have helped each other back and forth for 30 years or more. It's always a good thing for him to owe me a favor! once a few more coats of oil are applied, the sticks get a 3/4" rubber cane tip on the bottom.
  5. Several years ago, WOOD magazine did a project, a "wood turned walking stick". It didn't happen very often but this particular project just spoke to me and I had to make it. That's kind of funny because at the time, if I'm being honest, I couldn't really call myself a wood turner. My lathe was a shopsmith and I turned a spindle if I just had to. Anyway, I ended up making several of those walking sticks for gifts or personal use. I have decided to revisit the project and hit the highlights of it for the May demo for our club. It's a very straight forward thing to make except for the handle. I have a handle on the lathe, have turned it and done some shaping. Still a little more to do but it's coming along. Two things are different this time around. In the article, a compass is let into the handle with a cavity under it for matches, a map, or whatever. Those compasses are no longer available and I haven't been able to find a substitute so I'll just round the top. The other thing that's different is the EWT negative rake insert I now have in my arsenal. They are perfect for shaping the finger slots. Here's a WIP picture. Still some tweaking to do on this one but I'm happy with it to this point. The neat thing about this walking stick is, it's made in four pieces so a person doesn't need a real long bed to do it. One of the best WOOD projects ever IMO. Steve
  6. Here are the walking sticks I completed for my wife and I. Hers has a queen topper, I have a king!
  7. A friend of mine hurt his leg real bad when he slipped on some ice about six weeks ago. After an operation to repair the damage he has been on crutches and is now allowed to start putting weight on it and walk. I made him a cane to help him along. I'm 6'0" and a 36" cane is good for me so since he is 6"6" I made his 39" and it works well for him. Turning the long part required a steady rest. The length and thinness made it whip in the middle. For the handle I cut a tenon on the end and laminated three pieces of Cherry together for the handle. I looked at examples of handles and drew one to my liking and roughed it out on the band saw. I then took a half inch wood chisel and pared away the wood from the edges and then smoothed them out with sandpaper and applied wipe on poly for a finish. The top of the cane is 1.25" and tapers to .75" on the bottom. I found some cane tips at Walmart and they were made to press fit on a .75" shaft. Here are the finished pictures.
  8. The rack was commissioned by a very good, return customer who is a collector of unusual walking sticks and hiking staffs and an avid turkey hunter. He wanted an unusual rack to display part of his collection of sticks. He gave me the dimensions and asked me to come up with something. Here is what I came up with. The base is a 2 inch thick slab of cedar and the posts and rails are Diamond willow. I carved in the wood spirits and woodburned the turkeys, turkey tracks and flowers. The Turkey silhouettes are scrolled from 3/8 inch butternut. The rack is finished with several coats of Tung Oil. Pros and cons are welcome.
