    Good Night for Me.

    The local art council sponsors a non juried show every year for local artisans. It's a small show but it's still fun to enter. This year, I entered three pieces, ones you've all seen before. Two of them got recognition so I'm very happy about that. Just wanted to share my moment! Thanks for looking. Steve

    Small Vase/Box

    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
  4. I think your choice of blade for a particular job really is a personal choice with prior knowledge of your cutting habits. There are times where I will change sizes or type of blade during the cutting of a piece ! ie: long straight or slight curved lines vs tight inside cuts. Blade choice also depends on the speed of your saw, the thickness of the wood, and the hardness of the wood. OK - I don't think there is a hard and fast rule. Your style of cutting will choose your blade size and type.

    WW Magazines

    What is your current assessment of the offerings of the woodworking magazines? Maybe I've matured, but I've become less and less impressed. There is one local magazine that has had a nearly complete turnover of staff, new and old, in the last few years. Their objective now seems to be the newbie (which is probably the largest market is). Fine Woodworking has become ho-hum for me. After 30 years as a subscriber, I let it lapse a couple of years ago. Now I read copies from the library or e-library. Wood has become a bit better, IMO. Still sad they closed their forum. I subscribe now, but stopped long ago when their emphasis seemed to be lawn ornaments and other pukey ducks. Rockler and Woodcraft have their own in-house magazines. I read a bunch of old Woodsmith magazines and my impression was it was mostly for beginners to cobble together workshop tools rather than just buy them. Family Handyman is inexpensive, has other DIY articles and occasional woodworking project or technique article. Owned by Readers' Digest. Like most industries, there have been some mergers and acquisitions and subsequent retiring of the nameplate.
  6. Two or three acres have been set aside for green wood and its there for anyone wanting wood for a saw mill or wood for turning.. Its all free. No help is offered so a guy would need a good winch and ramp for his trailer. I found this place after I stopped a guy hauling a few tree trunks and ask him what he was going to do with the wood..After we talked a while he said follow me and you can get all the wood free any time you want to go get some... Only thing helpful would be able to recognize the wood by the bark and end grain if he was to be picky.... Also speaking of mesquite pieces for lathe work. This guy is clearing land right now of large cut down mesquite trees about three miles from where I live...He is digging the stumps with an excavator and anyone who stops has been getting all the stumps for free. The cut off trees is about 2 foot tall .He sold the trees for fire wood at 3 to 4 dollars a cord which the guys buying had to cut and load their semi trailers themselves.. so now the owner is digging up whats left and putting all that stuff in hugh piles and burning it all...So I though if some one not from here thinks this mesquite is great stuff, just bring a semi down here and you might get to go home with a gold mine worth of mesquite....you also might get to take a few borers with you as you go or at least I hope so...

    Still With The Cryptex Boxes

    Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve

    Wood Stash

    Well I picked up some wood today from an estate sale that had been stored for over 20 years is dry storage. I have to plane it to be sure ,but I think there is some usable stuff in there. Some Black Walnut,Aromatic Cedar, Red Alder, Spalted Alder, Dogwood. Herb
  9. Or the stupidity in trying to use it. I don't know which but it sure bit me in the Keaster today I spied a marvelously lovely tree that the storm crews took down on the road side Maple lots of black flecks interesting grain just lovely. So I did what any turner might do I went and got a hunk. A HONKIN HUGE HUNK It required a 4 sheave block and tackle and a ramp to get the piece in my truck. Was all I could do to tip the thing over even with a 5 foot peavy. Well I trimmed it up and with my saw and the thing had nails and wire in it. Like a fool I persevered telling myself that it'd be character. One $100 carbide tipped chain saw blade later I have it on the lathe. Apparently they used to use high carbon heat treated steel for barbed wire. I tell myself it's OK coz I got a Diamond wheel for my chain saw sharpener. The cost of beauty. I start peeling off waste and hit the barbed wire. I chisel out as much as I can. It's no good. I try to saw it off with the chain saw. IT's no good. They had been wrapping wire around that tree since it was maybe 6" in diameter. I gotta get a metal detector.

    Benevolant Box

    The pastor of our church asked me a couple of months ago if I would make a Benevolent "collection" Box for the church. Had to wait for the weather to warm up a bit before I could get out to the shop and not loose the feeling in my fingers. It finely warmed up to 40* so I got started on it! I had enough 1/2"BB plywood left over from another project, so that is what I used. I finished cutting all the pieces and took them down to the basement to warm up. Glued and in the clamps over night. Out of the clamps and the hardware installed. Took it over Friday morning to hang at the entrance to the sanctuary.

    Back to the natural walnut bowls

    I've still got several of the natural edge walnut bowls to finish. Took this one in the house today. It's about 12" diameter and 6" deep. I burned one of my favorite zentangle patterns on the bottom, "phicops in a circle". Steve Steve

    Blank prep

    This is what I have worked on since Tuesday . This is only two cut off a beech log about 20 foot long. Then there was little cherry and what we think may be hickory. Then I did a first turn on a cherry vase. Plan is to carve this vase to look like a flower bloom
  15. I have used some very hard exotic woods. Names that are hard to pronounce and foreign. So I was wondering what the hardest wood in North America is. I couldn't really think of a really hard wood. So I googled it. Without looking it up, do you have any guesses?

    In other news

    I had an email from Brent English yesterday. For those who don't recognize that name he is the creator of Robust wood turning lathes. He told me I won a Robust tool rest for my "gnarly Christmas tree" entry in the Christmas ornament challenge this year. I chose the four inch comfort rest because it fills a need for me. From what he said though I could've have had any one of them from their line up. Very generous. Steve

    Hummingbird display tree

    A lady saw my "gnarly Christmas tree" video and asked if I could make her a tree to display her miniature, glass, hummingbird collection. Had a great piece of spalted beech I used for the base. I'm hoping she'll post some pictures after she gets her birds on it. Steve

    maple bowl with a funky edge

    A little maple bowl about 8" diameter and a couple inches deep. Probably one of the very first bowls I turned to finish green. I wanted to try an idea for embellishing and dug this one out of the pile. I was trying to make it look like it could have, may have occurred naturally but not sure. Rattle can lacquer finish. Can't really tell from the pictures but it's got a nice little warp going on, it's about 3/4" longer than it is wide. Steve
  20. @Jim from Easy Wood Tools created a distinctive new banner for the Woodturners Forum! It is absolutely SUPER! Thanks, Jim, we really appreciate you making our forum the snazziest one on the Patriot site!

    What kind of wood is this?

    Hi guys - I have this old chifferobe that is supposedly a chifforette due to its size. Anyway, its another rescue piece from my hoarder FIL. I have been stripping chicken poo and urethane for the last few months and have discovered that the casework is veneered wood. Some of the veneer needs patches to repair damage. I do not want to peel all the veneer and replace it with all new wood because I really like the grain patterns in the existing veneer. The existing veneer was very dry and almost chalky looking so I treated it with boiled linseed oil. That really made the grain pop and the attached pictures show the wood after linseed oil was applied except the picture with the drawers and doors installed, that was pre-linseed. I thought this wood was walnut because of its dark color and open grain but then I went to the state governors mansion last night for a Christmas open house and saw a bunch of mahogany furniture that looks eerily similar to my project. Now I am not so sure. I took a bunch of photos close up and away and was wondering if any of you would take a gander at this. I can take a lot more pics if necessary. Thanks, Tom

    Acrylic ornament problems

    I ordered a piece of clear acrylic. Turning was a big challenge. The piece I used had a low melting point and it would heat and semi melt. This created melt smudges, not to mention melt frustration. I kept trying different turning tools and speeds. It wasn't easy. You can see the results. If I learned one thing.................... it is not to turn much of that stuff or get a harder clear acrylic.

    Cindy Drozda style(kind of) box

    This is a box in the style Cindy Drozda demonstrated to our club. I attempted it shortly after the demo but just couldn't remember all the steps. Ordered the DVD on the project and have been generating a fair bit of scrap. It's an involved little project and not very big. Hers are typically about 3" tall, this one is almost 3 3/4" tall. After probably 8 attempts this is second one I've completed. It is maple with a walnut inlay. I'm happy with it but there are definitely elements I want to improve on, have already started on another Steve

    CA glue and acrylics

    I have limited experience with Acrylics and I need some advice on gluing. In the past I have used CA to glue acrylics to wood, however I have always used a center post to assure that it would stay together. Can I successfully glue a flat acrylic material to a flat wood piece and then turn it without worrying about it coming apart. It will be a small piece, such as a Christmas ornament. Thanks

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
