  1. Thanks, Mike, for reminding us of how we have the freedoms we enjoy today- Our Patriot Turners- @Roy gave us an update on how his sphere jig is working. In his post he explains the significance of the choice of spheres. I can't imagine how he did the glue-up! @forty_caliber posted another beautiful bowl he turned from pecan He answers questions about the awesome center medallion he uses to sign his work- check this post @Gerald gave us a look at his setup for turning spoons without the aid of special jigs- He received lots of comments about his setup- Gerald also posted some of the ornaments he turned using an idea from last week's "4 Ways" Here's more from Gerald- Gerald's post got me thinking about some of the ornaments our members turned in years gone by. We had links to lots of design for ideas. Thought it would be nice to bring back some of them to stir your imaginations- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/turn-a-terrific-tree-ornament http://www.crwoodturner.com/files/how-to/ornaments.pdf http://kurthertzog.com/articles/creatingshellornamentsrev3red.pdf https://blog.woodturnerscatalog.com/2012/12/turning-a-snowman-box/ What’s Coming Up- https://community.woodturner.org/events/event-description?CalendarEventKey=a2728bff-a39d-4375-adee-018b90a311c9&Home=%2fevents%2fird-demonstrations&_zs=ceDib&_zl=rpKp3 For The Newbies- Thinking about turning duplicate parts? The December/January 2024 issue of Woodcraft Magazine's "Top Tip" in Tips & Tricks (pp 16) has a really neat lathe duplication jig. It uses your own turning tools and all the parts can be located at the Borgs. Check it out!! Expand Your Horizons- Craft Supplies USA posted a video on using CA glue as a finish. Another option for finishing some of your turnings- A nice pendant turning article from the AAW- https://www.woodturner.org/Woodturner/Resources/AmericanWoodturner/Articles-of-the-Week/2023/Tapered_Pendants.aspx?fbclid=IwAR3-6_s7nGVLEWvSgj9xpaXmybwFANI6UeAqDATbON-6HZpEGIrlh_En8io New Turning Items- Couldn't find anything special but remember Woodturners Wonders is running a daily sale- see last weeks "Wednesday's" for the list. Everything Else- I finished up the height adjust table to help accurately focus my engraving laser. It does work. Had to add up/down arrows to the adjustment knob after the pictures were taken. Finished table- Laser setup. The drill press table adjustment crank handle is visible back behind the orange laser safety shield. Very difficult to access to make focus adjustments. In action- Last week, at the local turner's club, one member demonstrated making a Christmas tree from a fresh cut limb. Thought I'd give it a try. Took longer to do the star than to turn the tree. Turned completely with Easy Wood Tools- except the star which was formed from a ball integral to the top of the tree. Cut out with a sharp utility knife. Star has gold leaf. Gonna leave the tree natural. Sort of a "primitive" item. From Ron Brown's newsletter- Curiosity As a child, whenever my mother gave me a new toy, it always came with the strong admonition “Don’t take it apart.” I’ve always had an intense curiosity for how things work, and how they do what they do. I had to see inside to understand them. So, I took them apart. I’ve been like that for as long as I can remember. In high school, I excelled in my field of study not because I was a good student, but because I needed to know what they were talking about to satisfy my curiosity. I went to work with the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe railroad at the age of 19 as a long-haul brakeman. I had endless hours sitting on a caboose, so I read Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazines from front to back two or three times. Then I graduated to Family Handyman Encyclopedias, every volume, every page from cover to cover to satisfy my curiosity. Every new field I’ve entered is the same way; intense curiosity drives me to learn everything possible. Not because I want to be the best, but because I need to know everything there is to know to satisfy my curiosity. Enter the world of turning wood. There are so many different facets to learn that it seems almost endless and I love it! This is one field that I will never completely understand and that is why I’ve stuck with it for so many years. I would encourage you to venture out of your specialty and explore something you think you might not like or might be beyond your capability. I promise you will be surprised. Here are some areas to explore: • Bowls, Plates, and Platters o Kiln-dried wood, green wood, hybrid resin and wood, glued-up full-thickness blanks, segmented glue-ups, bowls from one flat board, bowls with defects left in, natural edge bowls, end-grain blanks, blanks from root balls, blanks from crotches, exotic species from far away countries, construction grade lumber, laminated beams, from tiny to enormous, just to name a few. • Hollow Forms o Tall and narrow, short and wide, small requiring special shop-made tools, large in diameter requiring captive hollowing rigs or specialty hollowing tools, vessels with openings so small that you have to hollow through the bottom, impossible hollow forms requiring trickery such as invisible glue lines to hide your methods, dyed and tinted finishes, hollow forms with lots of carving and texturing, you get the idea. • Spindles o Furniture legs and parts, wands and canes, pepper mills, fancy finials, mallets, gavels, gnomes, kitchen utensils, turned-lidded boxes, tool handles, lamps, Christmas ornaments, inside-out two-step globes, spheres, items with hand-chased threads or threads from a threading jig, baseball bats, I could go on. That should keep you busy for a while. Just when you were getting comfortable you discover there is so much more left to explore. You will never run out of new things to try. Every time I turn around, I find new challenges to solve and that is what keeps me fresh and drives me to invent and explore every new day God gives me to serve my fellow men and women. Thanks for your support and encouragement. Safe turning

  4. I guess most of us are getting a little more shop time with the current health situations. Please stay home and away from crowds. Wash those hands and TURN OFF THE TV! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald put the finishing touches on the embellished platter he showed us recently- In this post, he describes what he did- @Masonsailor continues his work on his Lazy Susan tulip. Paul has prepared the location for it. Paul tells us about this space as well as showing us a beautiful chandelier he restored/modified- What’s Coming Up- Almost all workshops/symposiums/shows have been cancelled until further notice. For The Newbies- Mike Peace posted a neat little project. A different type of door stop. Mike uses several methods of chucking the piece. Another simple, but useful, turning is from an article in Woodworker's Journal. If you are into espresso, check this out- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/project-classy-espresso-tamper/ Expand Your Horizons- Carl Jacobson put up a video of turning epoxy and aluminum shavings. Carl has done several videos using Alumilite but in this one he tries a different casting material. Check out those Easy Wood Tools ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) negative rake cutters in action!!! Here is a very short video from Lyle Jamieson. Lyle uses a laser pointer help get the most out of a piece turned between centers- New Turning Items- I recently received my latest Woodcraft magazine (Vol. 16/No. 94). There is a super review of the new Easy Wood Tools mini hollowers. The author discovered what we already knew- they are awesome!!! Also in that issue is a Turned Table project. Measured drawings and step by step pictures makes this a project any turner can complete. The folks at Woodturners Wonders have a "new" product- at least from them- Turner's Calipers. At first glance, they appear to be similar to any other but as you check the spec, you'll find these are not your run-of-the-mill pieces. Check them out at- https://woodturnerswonders.com/products/calipers?variant=32660532363395 Everything Else- Woodturning Monthly from Woodworker's Journal is available at- http:// https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email I finished up the hollow vessel. Used mineral oil and beeswax as a finish The knot area was way softer than the rest of the wood. There is a little indentation but all in all it's OK. I'm still not happy with my ability to make things look graceful and elegant. Maybe that will come with practice. Safe turning and stay healthy.
  5. As the Marketing Manager for Easy Wood Tools I put together promotional materials and ads for our company. I wanted to share with all of you a full page ad that will appear in an upcoming issue of Woodcraft Magazine. With Lew's permission....
