  1. We've got sycamore trees in our yard, beautiful trees but they drop a lot of limbs. Now and then a limb is big enough to play with. Did some garden whimsy today. First day it's been cool enough to get in the shop for a while. They are a take off on some ornaments I did last year. I knew then I wanted to do some of these for the garden.
  2. In fact, it only just qualifies as turning at all, very simple and easy. We have a spare umbrella stand on our patio and we only use it for an umbrella when the kids are visiting, mostly on holidays. I had an idea and turned a piece of scrap 2X4 to fit inside the umbrella stand. Painted it black and added a couple plant hangers. Simple, simple, and easy, peasy but with current lumber prices it might be the most expensive thing I've ever turned!!

    AlienPNG

    Thought this one looked like something out of a star trek episode so named it the alien due to its organic shape specifically related to the finial. The hollow form is Cedar with turquoise inlay in the cracked and small voids. The headpiece or Finial is made of Bradford Pear and has turquoise inlay as well in a concentric pattern on each side which was all turned and hand carved. Size including the finial is around 14.5"x9.5". Hope you enjoy as much as I did making it.
  4. Hey gang, don't forget, we are into our site fundraising raffle. We started off like gangbusters but we have a long way to go! If you haven't already purchased your tickets, please consider checking out the fantastic prizes! All the proceeds from this fundraiser go to the operating costs of this site. Here's more: Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker set up a really cool way to visualize wall thicknesses when turning hollow forms. He mentioned it last week and had an opportunity to get his vase turned- Beautiful shape and
  5. Another box elder hollow form. Did this one using the camera setup. I can safely say, I'll never willingly go back to a laser. The camera set up is a vast improvement. I wanted to leave a natural edge at the top of this and I feel that went ok, about 3/8" thick, 1/4" would've been better but I got chicken. Overall, I'm happy with it but I feel the bottom could be better, a little more round I think. It's going to move as it dries anyway so we'll see how it ends up. My hollowing rig is home made but I did purchase Lyle Jamieson's tool bar.
  6. We went to the Springfield OH "extravaganza" this weekend. If you've never heard of it, it's one of the biggest antique, flea markets in the country. It happens twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. I believe there were over 1500 vendors this weekend. We drove about 300 mile round trip to attend, walked and walked for hours and I spent five bucks. I bought a tiny calipers. I told myself it will be great for when I turn finials but really I just thought it was cute. Nickel is for scale.
  7. Didn't do any turning today but I tackled a project I've been contemplating for a good while. Many who turn deeper vessels use a laser setup to help them determine how deep the cutter is cutting. It also helps determine wall thickness and total depth. That is the method I've used for a few years. I've been wanting to upgrade to a camera setup and decided today to "git-er-done". I had pretty much everything on hand and it went fairly quickly. I haven't had a chance to test it out yet but I believe it will be a much better setup. camera project.mp4 It's kind o
  8. I've got a pretty special piece of wood on my lathe this morning. Funny, it's been laying outside my shop since last fall and I almost threw in the fire pit. Cut a chunk off this morning and decided to do a little hollow form. Was very surprised by the ambrosia. It's near final shape but not quite there. I had stepped back several times and thought it was pretty good. But there is nothing like a picture to let a person really see. I can see it's a little fat at about center and I'll address that for sure. If I don't blow this up or go through the side it's going to be
  9. One of the guys at the club I started going to came in with a bowl that was half wood and half basket. He is going to teach us how to do it. I made this bowl to take over for the class.
  10. I went and met with a group today. Around 15 people. At 10 am they have coffee and donuts. At noon they have lunch. They don’t do much but talk. Anybody that has something new brings it in for show and tell. It was a lot of fun. A few people there really know what they are doing. I learned a lot today just talking to them. They meet every Tuesday. Looking forward to next week.
  11. You folks know I'm not turner. I used to be a "wannabe turner", and anymore I'm not even sure I'm that. Anyway, I have a lathe and the basic tools which I bought to help with my flatwork projects. But after 7 years or so, I haven't even done that. So I decided it's time. I'm trying to turn legs for a William and Mary table I saw somewhere, but the article was one of those that asks you to dig out an issue from 3 years ago to get the details on turning the legs. I don't have that issue so decided to tackle it on my own. I made a drawing (actual size) and made 2 blanks out of poplar to tune my
  12. I've got a really good start on this project so far. I've just now started to drill out the holes in the main body. @Gerald the 4x4s worked like a trick but a pain to trim down to the correct size. I got this one decently lined up for the small mill grinder shaft so we shall see where this goes. I've got 3 other kits on order I just wish you could order the grinder mechanism separately from the hole 14 dollar kit.
  13. My daughter got me a couple of wood turning gifts for my birthday. One was a pizza cutter and the other was a measuring cup set. All required me to turn handles. I have posted the pizza cutter, it came out nice. The measuring handles were set up to be turned on as a pen would..........I had none of the required equipment and have no desire to make pens. I went to Youtube (Sam Angelo) and found a way to do it without any more new lathe parts. I turned a wooden headstock piece to mount the workpiece on (not sure what to call it) you can see in the first picture in the chuck. It worked fine and
  14. Does anybody use one. I am looking at the Oneway mini system. It can be bought for around $250 for a 12” lathe. Looks like it would save time, give me more bowls and a lot less chips.

  18. I just joined the forum so I thought I would start with my latest turning project. This is a project to turn an existing liquor cabinet into something to bring it into line with our Art Deco theme for this house. It involves three separate turnings in a tulip style which will be mounted vertically on a 1 5/16” brass pole and progressively getting smaller in diameter, largest on the bottom. The “tulips” are all 15” high, and are 16”, 13” and 11” in diameter. I am making them from 8/4 African mahogany. The biggest challenge has been to arrange the grain pattern to end up looking like overlapping

  21. I just purchased a "set" of 5 wood turning bowl chisels, made from files. I'm curious about how these will work for turning bowls. Any advice on the maintenance of these?
  22. Handy Dan posted a thread a while back on using the threads from plastic bottles to make threaded boxes. I never did anything with it but I guess I didn't forget about it either. It seems every time I go for a check up the doc wants to prescribe a new maintenance drug and what do you do with all the empty bottles? The ones my prescriptions come in have a thumb lock on them It occurred to me, if I could turn the lock portion away I could use the bottle(s) to make a small threaded box. Maybe for toothpicks, or matches for camping, fire starter, or whatever. To see if it
  23. Here are some pictures of my deep hollowing set up. I have about 22" reach with it. It's built around an inch and one quarter diameter bar. The bar is 4140 prehard steel. That should be stiff enough to reach out about 20" or so. I have about 22" of reach from the cutting tip to the torque arrestor that is welded to the round bar. There is a threaded stud in the front corner for attaching the laser pointer post. This picture shows the threaded stud a little better. The trap that holds the boring bar is
  24. These pieces are from 2014 or so. They may have been posted on the old Wood forum but don't really remember anymore. Anyway, I had this idea, made a few pieces and then just never got back to develop it further. A few days ago I saw someone post a similar turning on facebook so I thought I'd share the ones I did. These all incorporate rare earth magnets to create the illusion of a piece floating. This was my first attempt, a floating ball. I didn't do a real good job of hiding where the magnet is in the ring but in the globe the joint is nearly invisible.
  25. I've got the demo for February for our club. Can't complain, several other members have really stepped up and covered the last few months. That makes it so much easier. Anyway, the Feb. demo will be two parts. The first half hour or so I'll be doing some sharpening on, and talking about the Tormek sharpener. I've allotted a half hour but if there are a few questions it could go longer. With that in mind I need a relatively quick project for the turning portion of the demo. Have decided to make a "Knitting Nancy" or French Knitter. A simple spindle project which will be a good skill builde
