My Clubs and Organizations

  1. Did the rough turn on this last week and just getting to post.This is from The walnut the club harvested on city property. Might have gotten two platters but had some flaws. A bit of a different shape as it is a platter with high sides. This is 14 inch so left it at 1.5 thick. May take a while to dry this one. Have not turned walnut this wet before and it looked to what light streaks when first turned. Also has some of those purple streaks. there are the purples Running a bit of water. This is is where I stopped. The light areas l
  2. My son approached me last month and asked if we could build a desk for his bedroom for this upcoming school year, he is planning on a ton of homework and being in 10th grade and all, the work is going to get harder and harder. He asked me to help him build the desk just before I went into the hospital back in early June, I was in bad shape for the first few weeks coming out of the hospital and meanwhile he was asking me when we can start the desk, bless his little soul and heart, as crappy as I was feeling, he felt that ol Dad could get up and go and power through it all with a des

    Easy Wood Vessel

    From the album: Easy Wood Tool

    Lidded vessel turned with easy wood tools.
  4. Winter is coming which is our time here in the desert to start our shooting season. This year we will be doing the 1000 and 1500 yard milk jug challenge. I decided this year to make some ammo boxes as presents to my shooting buddy using scraps from the bin. They are walnut and maple. I used the Shaper Origin to make the actual block and holes which worked pretty well. Paul
  5. As promised, here is the result much of my efforts this past couple of weeks. It is a solid walnut pool cue rack my son-in-law resulting from a request he made upon moving into their new home. I am also in the middle of making a Danish Style Bench with a woven seat. I have never tried this before. I remember a project in a wood working magazine several years ago. I can't find it but I have designed it and am building it from memory and should have it done next week if all goes well. It is interesting to do as there are lot of curved surfaces and making the right and left hand parts
  6. If you go back to the entry prior to this "unusual ornament" you will see the block I made this one from. This one looks like it has many different designs in it and I didn't see this outcome until I stopped the lathe. I like surprises like this.
  7. Seeing that I had took all the tips off of my EWT tools not including the rougher. I started on a new project while I'm waiting for a couple tools and parts to get here to finish off the last project. I decided to go with the Walnut Claro again this round. I had a minor problem in the beginning that I didn't realize that the blank was off angled cut and was well some what lop sided to start with. Even still burned through that issue at the start and had a go with it. I had to take off quite a bit of material to get more of a cup shape with this one. For the bottom I didn't go with the mo
  8. I have been experimenting with the UV clear finish that dries in seconds when exposed to a UV light or the sun. The sun. is much quicker. I got a surprise when I coated this ornament and took it to the sun. The Walnut looks normal, until it is exposed to the sun and then turns purple, (almost glows) but returns to normal again when out of the sun. It is the only wood so far that does that. Can anyone guess what I turned into this piece in the center. It is chrome like and comes from a entirely different source and I wondered "What if?"
  9. This is a project that use a LOT more than just the CNC but I decided to put it here anyway. Please move it if necessary. Started yesterday with some cutoff pieces of Walnut, finished it today, shipping it to NY on Monday. Finished in Nitrocellulose lacquer. When your planer isn't big enough and the CNC is... Enjoy! David
  10. I'm building some walnut bedside tables with 24" circular tops. For visual interest...and because it'll be fun... I'd like to use 12 alternating maple and walnut angled segments in a sun burst pattern. Ive gotten far enough to understand that the angles need to be 30°...I think. Do I cut each angle side at 15° ? Please help a mathematically challenged old man. And, muchas gracias!!!
  11. I made this in my tiny little shop (man, I’d really LOVE to have a window). Two are #4 hard maple shaker boxes with African mahogany tops. Also made two #3 shaker boxes from walnut with butternut tops. Hit them with some natural danish oil and after they dry for about 3 days or so, I’ll shoot them with about 4 coats of a satin poly. The hardest part for me is milling the stock to 1/16th of an inch....I seen to be able to get a better result on my table saw instead of the bandsaw....anyhow, I hope all youse guys are staying safe and healthy! I can’t wait until this comes to an end.

    Candle Box And Holders

  13. I am not a woodsman and have NOT seen many walnut trees. This is more than 4 ft at the base and the main section of the trunk weighed 23,000 lbs. The near perfect trunk did not have rot in it or any big bad areas. The limbs are bigger than the trees I've seen. Wow!
  14. First batch of ornaments for the year. Mostly maple, cherry, and walnut, there are a couple sycamore globes. There is one sea urchin ornament, that one has ebony finials. We spent a few days on Jacksonville beach with my wife's brother and his wife. Two of our best friends in the world. Picked some sea urchins and this ornament will go to them as a remembrance. Most of these are dyed "inside out". A couple local gift shops sell a few of these and those are the most popular. To me, it's hard beat just plain wood grain. Thanks for looking! Steve
  15. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    I got in the shop a little and decided to make my own layout tools, starting with the ever so useful 6" square. Since it's the most used size in my work, it's a good jumping off point. Then I'll create a smaller 3" followed up by a few larger squares. I love how this one feels, and you know what? No more accidental scratching or marring of wood surfaces like you may get with steel squares.
  16. 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
  17. I've got a beautiful piece of walnut on the lathe, trying to do a hollow form about 14" deep and about the same major diameter. Drilling to start hollowing this morning and when I backed out to clear chips this is what I saw. No drill bit, this is a bad thing. At this point I'm over 10" deep with this bit. Fortunately I was drilling in steps and had made a good portion of the hole larger already. What now? Couldn't reach it with
  18. Have a current order for honey dippers, this is the first batch of 20 finished. Some of the these have some really nice grain in the lids. Steve
  19. 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 handl
  20. Well, it is time to share about what's happening with Ron Dudelston, John Moody and myself as we are hanging out together for a few days down in "Moody-Ville" aka Florence, Alabama. My wife Tami and I are on a 2+ week vacation visiting with our son and daughter in law in Indianapolis, IN as well as seeing some other friends in Indiana (including Ron and Dorothy Dudelston) and making a road trip down to Florence, Alabama to hang out with John and Beth Moody. We always have a great time together visiting, laughing and eating way too much food and our wives love to get out together to do some sh
  21. I had a nice day last weekend, I was in my shop for most of it, just tooling around and getting reacquainted with my clean shop! So I started back in on my claro walnut rocker. I had some issues with the legs to the seat joint so I spent some time truing up the joint's (different post later tonight) and after wards I still had some considerable shaping to do with my right angle grinder. So I put a 60 grit disk on the grinder and went to town on the rear portion of the seat, I had some dishing out to do that I started last year but got side tracked away from it. It took me about 15 minutes t
  22. I have been working on this custom green egg table and got it all finished and delivered Saturday. So this is my SketchUp drawing of the table and how it should look. And below is the table that was finished and delivered and the Extra Large Green Egg and a Baby Egg. The table is cedar with a solid top. Between the cedar boards are 1" strips of Walnut. The skirts around the table are Walnut. The outside legs are 4" cedar and the inside support legs are 3" square. Are the shelves are cedar. I use 4" casters and the two in the front are lockable.
