  1. 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

  8. We are proud to have our woodworking community featured on the Woodcraft Blog. Thank you Patriot Woodworkers for making this project a great success! And thank you Woodcraft for your incredible support in all our veterans projects!

  14. 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.
  15. For anyone who may be interested, here is a link to a Woodcraft* one day sale. The Bosch router includes a guide set. https://www.woodcraft.com/products/bosch-2-25-hp-electronic-variable-speed-fixed-base-router?utm_source=bm23&utm_medium=email&utm_term=Image+-+MEGA+DEAL&utm_content=Bosch+MEGA+2-21&utm_campaign=02/21/2018&_bta_tid=41125270835476418981254995244397996435765608831347284254702223034581614217442332804846364249046940638727&_bta_c=7pwyv3je7zo0usxw4yxp386zztnjz

  17. Info for whoever is interested. Remember the tornado that hit Tulsa back in August? That did enough damage to their Woodcraft store that it had to close down. Last month, I contacted Woodcraft to ask about the store reopening. They said that the owner had found a new location in Tulsa, and hoped to reopen soon. I took a couple of classes there, some nice people.
  18. Do any of you out there live near Lexington, KY? If so, this weekend (Saturday the 14th) I will be at the local Woodcraft store all day for their Demo Days / Sale. It would be great if you want to stop by and say hello. Yes, I will be turning... but certainly not a very impressive demonstration, other than the performance of our great tools. I will have tee-shirts, ball caps and other EWT "swag" to give away. It should be a really fun day with several other live demonstrations going on, including a forge set-up out in the parking lot. Will Atwood, the store manager is quite an accomplished turner and some of his pieces are always on display. Come by and say hello, I would really enjoy meeting you.
  19. Our generous sponsor, Woodcraft, is making available a free plan for a dining room table. This is for a limited time. Get your plan at- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/dynamite-dining-table-done-easy
  20. I finally go to go to the Learn to Turn class at the Tulsa Woodcraft. Got lost going through Tulsa, though. Too much construction, and the road signs didn't correspond with Google maps. Got to the class an hour late, but they were very gracious about that. Got credit for the class, which is a pre-requisite for the Beginning Bowl Turning class, which is next Saturday. Now that I know the route, getting there from Wichita will be a lot easier. I came back from the class with two big take-aways. First, I brought home a basic bowl, next Saturday will be ! more in depth, and second, Easy Wood Tools are kick-arse!. My first experience with them. The wood used was poplar, which was pretty easy to work with. My only other experience with trying (emphasis on the trying) to turn a bowl ended up with pieces of maple spread around my lathe on the floor. Major fail. Going to have to save up some money, though, those tools aren't cheap. Good quality usually isn't. Which brings up a question. Which one first? I assume a rougher is first, but what size would be best? I see from their web site that they have more than one rougher.
