Topic tags/keywords: woodturning bead tool tail stock steady tenon removal bottom finishing

I just uploaded a couple videos to youtube. If you have any interest, check them out.
The first video is using my Tail Stock Steady to remove the nub form a pedestal form. I know the quality isn’t what I expected, but I also didn’t expect that I could actually get it to upload. New computers do wonders.

This next video is a little bit better. It’s about a 3 bead carbide tool I just got back my sharpening service today. It worked better than anticipated. (in Tucson)

That’s a lovely piece, Jerry. Finish it up and post it as a project with some nice photos.

Geez, Bill, I just about fell out of my chair when I read your comment. Imagine that, something positive from old Bill. Thanks Bud.

Yep, I kinda like it myself. It certainly gives me some consistency when decorating a form. Today I did a better video and will probably post that to youtube. I love making tools that make my work easier. .............. Jerry (in Tucson)

I know that in the videos I posted, the camera was not positioned correctly. Sorry about that, but now, with these pictures, the camera has been re positioned and the pictures are a bit better. In this first picture, I’ve just removed the tenon down to the nub, and have set up my Tail Stock Steady to remove the nub. The form is mounted to a rim chuck, which is mounted onto my Chuck Plate, which isn’t visible.

The nub has been turned into a small finial rather than remove it completely. I do this only because I can, and it’s a touch not normally seen in 98% of other turnings with pedestals.

This image shows a dowel that I used to bridge a crack that could have been a problem. The dowel is made from the same piece of wood that the form is made of, which is Palo Verde local to the Sonoran Desert. Pretty neat effect that looks kinda like cat eyes.

This image is of another form with a finial in the pedestal. Mesquite lidded box.

This last image shows the 2 forms I was working on. No finish applied on either form. The larger is a little over 5”od and 6” tall at the top of the knob. The smaller form is 3 1/2” OD and 5 3/4” tall.

That’s beautiful. Sadly I am having problems coming across good Palo Verde trees to mill. What i have come across is very termite infested and so will have to see if it works out well enough when it dries to use it with some stone inlay.

Does the wood stay that color or does it darken with age?

Woody, remember last summer I invited you to Tucson to get some wood before it was burned? Well, this is just a fraction of what was available.

The P V tends to go yellow like citrus when first coated with a finish. I have some that’s 2 years old the the color has stayed the same. That termite infested stuff is usually something that’s been dead about a year. Whenever I get a fresh green tree, if I can’t turn it right away, I have about 6 months before the bugs get into it. After that, anything turned looks like a colander…... ...... Jerry (in Tucson)
