I do enjoy these recaps. I would LOVE to have one of those EWT chucks. They look awesome.

Lew, nice job with the sander...now that I know what it is. :lol:

And, the alternative use for a router bit was quite ingenious. Opens up some intriguing possibilities. Wonder what an ogee would do?:lol:

@Steve Krumanaker Thank you. I am hoping folks don't get fed up with the recaps. I think it is important to give our turners the recognition they deserve.  A long time ago, before Easy Wood Tools was sold to Pony, some of the turners here had the opportunity to test drive many of the Easy Wood Tools- including their chuck. It has the fit and finish of a fine swiss watch. I think it has to be the best chuck on the market.

 

@Gerald Thanks!

 

@HandyDan Thank You! I think those candle holders would make nice Christmas presents.

 

@Gene Howe  Thanks! I tried the sander today on a small holly bowl. It works pretty good. BTW, I got my order of Manzanita today- ordered it Monday!

Not a chance. I don't turn, but sometimes imagine it just through all you guys do. I personally enjoy and look forward to the weekly recaps...sometimes I missed a lesson.

 

Agreed, giving those who contribute so much to this forum an additional kudos is important. I've learned a lot from each of them (you)...some of it I can actually use in woodworking:P

 

Keep up the good work Lew. It's GREATLY appreciated!

 

Edit add: BTW, not by my choice, but keep your shovel handy...we're sending some more nasty stuff to you in a couple days.

Wish I could promise you that Lew, but from our forecast, doesn't look good. You'll likely get snow first, followed by the iconic Indiana "wintery mix.":blink:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

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.
