In this project tutorial, Bill explains how to create a Navaho Border Pattern that can be added to either a standard turning block or to a segmented turning. And of course, these patterns can be used for cutting boards or any other woodworking project.
Storing and Turning Unseasoned Wood
by Joe Johnson
As woodturners, we are often faced with the problem of dealing with wet or
unseasoned wood. Working with wet or unseasoned wood has many
advantages. Among the advantages are that wet wood is more readily available,
it is much cheaper and often free, and it is easier to turn than dry, seasoned
wood. But working with unseasoned wood requires some specialized knowledge to store and turn it properly.
The Vacuum Face Plate is the newest product from Rubber Chucky. The Vacuum Face Plate allows you to mount your turnings to the lathe with a broad flat surface instead of a drum-shaped adapter. You can even use it with offset turnings.
Available in 8", 12" and 16” diameter. 1-8”, 1 1/4-8” and M33-3.5 spindle sizes. You must have your own vacuum system.
Can also be used as a sanding disc or for Offset Turning (adapter required) on your tailstock.
