  3. Well, normally this would be Tax Day but this year is anything but normal. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier did a couple of really neat "pulls". Even in the dark, you can tell the function of each. Here's Ron's explanation of what he did- Ron also showed us how he displays some of his gorgeous ornaments! Head over to his post to see some more of his work- What’s Coming Up- In case you missed it, here is yesterday's video from Woodcraft's "Turning Tuesday". Frank turns a salt and pepper set- As you can see, Frank is no stranger to those Easy Wood Tools! ( @Jim from Easy Wood Tools ) For The Newbies- Mr. David Reed Smith has a new project available. His well documented projects are free to view but they are also available in PDF format for an very small fee. This particular project is well suited for the beginning woodturner and would make a nice gift for any youngster. Check out Mr. Smith's tutorial here- http://davidreedsmith.com/Articles/RainbowPegDolls/RainbowPegDolls.html The Woodturning monthly newsletter is available. Lots of interesting information- Here's the link- https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/woodturning-monthly/?utm_medium=email Expand Your Horizons- A project that none of us really wants to consider, nevertheless, we just might be asked to make one of these. Mike Peace has a 2 part video on making an urn. Mike details how to use commonly available PVC components to create the threaded lid. Part #2 is linked from Mike's channel- Bottle stoppers are always a nice gift to the host or hostess. The Woodworker's Journal has a nice article on turning some cool examples. This article uses cork stoppers but there are some really great stainless steel ones available. I get mine from Ruth Niles- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/ We live in an area where Amish and Mennonites are prevalent. I copied this stopper from one that I saw in Ruth's shop- Easter is over but that gives you time to make one of these "Cadbury Eggs" for next year. Carl Jacobson shows us how! New Turning Items- In several videos, from different turners, I've seen this tool in use and it looks pretty handy. Sam Angelo shows us how to make one- This second video shows a little more about the tool- Everything Else- I've been playing with a piece of spalted maple. I wanted to make a symmetrical shaped bowl but was having trouble getting the upper and lower halves even. Then this popped into my head- I used this Duplication gauge and flipped it back and forth until the halves were even. Sanded the outside. This will not be one of those mirror finishes! Soft spots and cracks. Rechucked it and started hollowing. There was a rotten branch buried in the center. Not sure how much meat will be left when I get to the bottom of the defect. Using the depth gauge to determine the bottom thickness. Still have a little ways to go. That missing chunk on the rim is where the rotten branch started and proceeded diagonally thru the piece. Safe turning and stay well
  4. Woodcraft has made available a free tutorial on using Sketchup. Check it out at- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/the-best-of-sketchup
  5. I wish I could say this is all an April Fools joke, but... Two posts this week I thought were extremely important even though they didn't deal with turning. The first from @Ron Altier about isolation. This can be a real deal breaker for some folks. I'm glad we have each other to help fend off those feelings. The second was from @Kevin Beitz wondering why more of us weren't posting on the forums now that we are asked to stay home. With all of the doom and gloom bombarding us from all sides, some of us just can't get the juices flowing enough to really enjoy time in the shop. Our Patriot Turners- @Lissa Hall showed us her first turned bowl and it is a beauty. Lissa turned it from cedar- Check out Lissa's post and give her kudos on a great turning! @Masonsailor continues to finish up his lazy susan tulips. He have us two updates this week- and- Our old friend @Charles Nicholls is still cranking out his great stuff. Charles showed us what he is up to on a post from last Friday- New member @marshall posted an inquiry about learning to use a Ringmaster from Peter Merritt. He has received a few comment but hopefully some of you can direct him to more information- What’s Coming Up- "Turning Tuesday at Woodcraft" is a new video presentation from our sponsor. This is from their YouTube channel- "We are starting a weekly live video series where we hang out in the shop and make something. As of right now Tuesdays at 2pm Frank will be turning one of our project kits. We will hopefully be adding more streams as well. Make sure you follow us on social media to stay up to date." For The Newbies- There are pretty much as many ways to turn a project as there are turners. Here's a nice video on turning spheres without any special jigs- Expand Your Horizons- Last week we posted a rather lengthy video on getting into resin turning. Woodcraft has a written tutorial for those wishing to give it a try. You can read it at- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/resins-for-rookies New Turning Items- Sorry, could find anything this week. Everything Else- With everyone trying to stay safe, some turning clubs are using virtual meetings to keep in touch. I think some of our turners, here, have done this. Here is a video from Mike Peace going over some thoughts and ideas. And for your enjoyment, a little something from our good friend Tim Yoder- Safe turning and stay well

  10. Beautiful sunny day here in south central Pennsylvania. Even with the sun, the temperatures barely got above freezing. A sure sign winter isn't far away. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald received quite the honors this week. Not only was one of his turnings selected by the American Association of Woodturners as the turning of the week; they are also publishing one of Gerald's turning tips! We can certainly see why this one was chosen! Here's a link to Gerald's post. Please offer him your congratulations- @John Morris gave us a heads up on a tutorial from Woodcraft Magazine. Woodcraft has a large library of projects submitted by readers. These are made available to everyone. There is a downloadable PDF file available, too. Notice Carl Johnson's use of those great Easy Wood Tools!! What’s Coming Up- It's a little far in the future, but if you are in the Louisville, KY area, keep this date in mind. When more info is available, I'll update the event. For The Newbies- Mike Peace has a two part video demonstrating how to turn a gavel. These can be a welcome gift for anyone involved with public meetings. Making one from a significant piece of wood can make it even more special. The second part is linked from Mike's channel. Expand Your Horizons- A turning conundrum- how to sign you work? Etching pen, woodburning, sharpie? M. Saban-Smith discusses his method in this short video- New Turning Items- I stumbled across this site today. Although the equipment being sold isn't a "new invention", it looks like their take on quality is something to be respected- https://www.theokspindoctor.com/ Everything Else- Over the weekend, I managed to get all of the new lathe pieces from the pickup to the basement. Moe, Larry and Curly would have been proud! Thank goodness for levers, inclined planes and staged lifting. Of course nothing ever goes as planned. Positioning of equipment and storage needed to be re-thought and re-arranged. One of the first things I needed to do was to modify some of my most used jigs to fit onto the larger lathe. This lathe has a 16" swing (old one was 14") and the distance between the ways is wider. I raised the jigs so that they set at the proper elevation to be centered on the horizontal axis of the head/tailstock. I got lucky as I had scraps the exact thickness required. I also did some housekeeping and begrudgingly parted with some old jigs for project that I'll probably never do again- at least until after the garbage goes on Friday. Couldn't wait any longer- It Works! Love how quiet this lathe is!!! Even my old welding shop tool rests fit, although the post could be a little longer. After reading the manual, I believe I'll need to find a more convenient place to plug it in. The electronic speed control is sensitive to voltage surges and Jet recommends unplugging the lathe when not in use. I looked at the price of 3 pole disconnects- a little salty. Safe turning
