Fall Challenge & Trade
Oct 7th, 2011 at 1:15am
 
OK gang, since we have seen that the group's skills have significantly improved with all the challenges, I'm going to put you brave souls that believe you are up to a real challenge to the test.  We have a lot of new members, so we are going reuse a C&T from 5 years ago.  This one is a bit more specific than some we have done, but if you use your imagination, there is room for creativity.  Here goes:

Turn a goblet, meaning: bowl, stem and base, out of 1 piece of wood.  It must be able to stand on it's own.  Minimum of 6" tall, 4" of which must be stem, the bowl should be no less than 1 1/4" diameter.  The stem should be no thicker than 3/16".

Ok, seem easy enough?  Well, for those of you who are turner enough and want to go for extra credit, here are some suggestions:

    longer stem (stem length of 6" or more)
    thiner stem (1/8" dia. or less)
    (add them together for double extra credit)
    captive ring(s) on the stem
    carved stem
    carved bowl
    eccentric stem
    square edge in the bowl section
    natural edge on the bowl or base
    Use your imagination!

For those of you that want to try and join the challenge but have never turned a goblet, here's a great tutorial by Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register to get you started.

Also, you can look in the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register at what was done 5 years ago.  Don't copy, but let it inspire you.

For those of you who are new to our C&T's,  It is a Challenge to create a piece to the best of your abilities that meet the specifications given, & once completed, you will Trade it to another participant either in a Round Robin, where A sends to B, B sends to C, C sends to D...  or you have a Partner to send your piece, and your partner will send you their piece.  Trade assignments are given after pieces are completed and all photos posted.  If you haven’t posted a picture of your completed piece by the deadline, you will not be eligible for a trade.

Time line will be 5 weeks to give people time to learn and practice if need be.  The gallery will open Thursday, November 10, and pictures need to be posted by the end of the day, Sunday, Nov 13.  You will also need to PM your mailing address to me by then as well. I will use Random.org to select the trades on Monday, Nov 14.  No Photo, No Address, No Trade.  This trade will be a Round Robin. 

OK!  Now who is going to sign up to try this?   Are you in?  It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned turner or a relative newbie.  All we ask is that you make a serious effort to do your best.  If you are in, indicate whether you are willing to spend the little extra to ship outside the country.

I am in as well!  I am always hesitant to chime in until I have my piece done since I had to back out of a couple of C&T events when life got in the way.  I have one done so I am good to go!

Take care
Bob

P.S.:  The raw video is in the camera but it is going to take a lot of editing to get it down to a reasonable length.  This one took a long time to turn!  Cheesy

OK I made one but forgot to bring the requirements to the shop! Roll Eyes

7" tall so no problem there and stem is 3/16 but the 4" might be a hair short depending where you measure from.
I might have to go for #2!

John, that is the fun part of these challenges.  They get you to try things you haven't done before.  Many times I hear, "I can't do that.  It is beyond my skills."  My answer is that you never know until you try.  You may just succeed.  If you never try, you will never succeed.  I never did a goblet until someone dared me.

So for all those who are still thinking about this,  "I dare you."

Jim, lad, I've not put tool to wood for over a year (perhaps two) so I'll give this a go. I'll try to dig up my round tuit, it's buried somewhere out in the shop. I'll also have to clean up the lathe a bit, sharpen a tool or two and PARCTICE.

Well, I started on mine today. Thought I'd challenge myself a bit with a really thin stem @ 1/8". Everything was fine until I went to adjust the jamb chuck on the live center, supporting the bowl section. Decided to leave it off and see how true it was running, thought I had the speed down low, turned the lathe on, it cranks up to 1500+ rpms and the cup became an IFO!
Guess I'll try again tomorrow, for now I'm going back out and turn me a nice, easy bowl!

Kathy, you have to support the turning at the tailstock end. When the stem part gets "thin" then you have to support it either w/a spindle steady or your fingers. If you use your fingers you'll learn very rapidly how to control the gouge w/one hand. It appears that lesson #1 has been learned.

The tailstock end of the turning can be supported by a wood disk covered w/some of that no slip rubber stuff one buys @ the dollar store. I can tell you how to make the disk and mount it if you PM me here.

I'm sure others here can give you other ideas as well.

Don't feel too bad Kathy. I did something like that earlier this year. I was going for one of those foot long stems on a sycamore branch. I had it half done and when I moved he tool rest, I put it right where it would catch the bell of the natural edge. Turned the lathe on and snap!

When I do my goblets, I put a piece of foam in the cup and bring the tail stock up to hold it in place. You don't want much pressure on it, just enough to stop the wobble. By using foam, when I part it off with the parting tool, the bottom of the foot stays resting on the tool so and the foam lets it move from the spinning tenon and I can turn the lathe off without having to catch the piece.

I think the broken stem club is a goblet maker's version of the funnel club for bowl turners.

I made mine last night. I'd been trying to push the envelope with a combination of styles but it blew up miserably. I think my problem was choice of wood and size. I was trying to combine the multiaxis turning with a goblet of rather tall proportions but since I was using cedar, the stem just wasn't strong enough to hold up to finishing the cup. I ended up with a tall NE goblet with rings. I'll keep the multiaxis idea for when I feel lucky again. I think with some changes, I can make it work.

My first try burned up in the fireplace last night. Both tries ended up in multiple IFO's and that was with the lathe running as slow as possible, VERY light cuts, and a whole lot of pucker. I think next time I will try to keep the bends closer to the center line. I had the outside turn about as far away from center as I could go.

Two in the burn pile for me at this time.  No.1  was a bowl way large for the stem.  Ahh it was suppose to be a practice piece anyway.  No. 2 I hollowed through the bowl.  Sad moment  Cry.  Going back out to start again.

I'm not going to commit yet cos my shop time seems to be so sporadic these days.  I am trying to make one though.  Try #1 doesn't quite hit the requirements (stem too short and a shade too thick.)  Try #2 I was just starting to do some final shaping on the base and had a catch and snapped the stem.  Going to try to save that one with a different base, but again won't make the cut for the C&T.  Try #3 forthcoming... fun stuff! Wink

Kevin, That is why we call it a challenge.  If you at least try them, you will stretch your abilities.  And the best part is getting something from another turner for your collection.

OK, I'm in!  smiley=thumbsup.gif

Managed to spend most of the day in the shop.  Try #3 turned out to have a void smack dab in the middle of the stem  smiley=shake head.gif

Try #4 was successful!  Think I may regret having to send it away! LOL  Meh, call it motivation to do another.   Roll Eyes

I'll ship anywhere.

Ok, and now I'm having a very good laugh at myself because while I was working on the goblet, I had it in my mind that the challenge was to get the stem less than 3/32" rather than less than 3/16".

Well, against all odds, I've finished the goblet. Ya gotta bear in mind that I've not turned anything in over a year so there's a "booboo" on it but it's not that bad.

Here's what it is: a piece of cedar that'd been layin' around for about 10 years. It's 265mm high, the bowl is 90mm in dia., the wall thicknes is an ave. of 1.5mm, the stem is 150mm and the stem is 4mm in dia. Pic.in the gallery soon

Good luck to the lota,ya.  smiley=thumbsup.gif

For all practical purposes, mine is done.  I do still need to knock the finish back and add another coat, but it is turned, sanded, and off the lathe.  Pics to be posted tomorrow evening.

Pretty much.  Shop time has been precious.  Today LOML informs me that we are going to redo the dining room today.  So we started it.  She thought we would get it done in one day.  Yeah, right!  Anyway, we got it cleared and primed.  Sunday is the normal busy church day.  Monday and Tuesday I'll be at our state convention.  Wednesday will be a day to catch up and prep before prayer meeting.  Thursday I'll have time in the evening to mud and tape the seams in the paneling that we are covering.  Going to thin some dry wall compound and roll it on to make a smooth wall.  At least that is the plan.  We'll see how it goes.

it is with deep regret that i must bow out of this challenge.  last night, in a drunken rage, my stepson destroyed the base to my entry.  I do not have enough free time to come up with another.

i am sorry.

Is that it ??? 13 entries ( I think ) ??? how can we get more people involved ?? it's fun, any ability turner can join in, good bad and ugly are all more than welcome, every piece is considered a good effort whatever the ability.
It's never a heavy piece, so shipping even to/from me isn't much cost and to top it all you get to see other turners work...............WOW. smiley=beer.gif

just my 2c.
I know some had to bow out recently !! Cry

I hear you Leo. I try to do as many as I can as well as all of the turner's challenges with my local club. It keeps you out of a rut, teaches you new techniques, and sharing is just too much fun. The few things I've gotten over the last year make great references for things I'd like to try.

For me, it is like so many other things in life. You get out what you put in.

I have the trade assignments ready.  PM's will be going out in just a few minutes with the addresses.  I double checked that I didn't make any mistakes before I sent them(right Rev?), but so you can get ready to send your goblet, here is the list.

Jim Quarles            to      Gary R Webb
Gary R Webb      to      Leo Makepeace
Leo Makepeace      to      Bob Hamilton
Bill Schoppert      to      Tom Tunget
Robert Harper      to      Guy Bratt
Kathy Marshall      to      Robert Harper
Guy Bratt            to      Doug Miller
Tom Tunget      to      Bud Gillaspie
Carrie Bradfield      to      Edward Weber
Bob Hamilton      to      Jim Quarles
Edward Weber      to      Kevin Stanbary
Bud Gillaspie      to      Carrie Bradfield
Kevin Stanbary      to      Bill Schoppert
Doug Miller            to      Kathy Marshall

The selection was done using the Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register website.  I had to run it through about 25 times before I didn't have anyone sending to themselves.

Thanks to all the members that participated in this C&T.  Without your participation, we wouldn't be the active group we are.  And there is still time to get to the Ornament C&T.

Most of you have already read your PM with the mailing address your goblet goes to.  Please try to get it in the mail by Saturday.  Don't forget to post here when you ship, and again when you receive yours.

I shipped mine out this afternoon.  It was hand delivered to Gary Webb when he arrived to pick up some Olive.

Mine arrived from Bill!
Had some cool extra turning blanks in there too!

Only problem was, the extra pieces broke the stem, but it is a clean break that I believe will heal up nicely with a tad bit of glue.

That is the tube the plans for my boat came in. I cut it short and I turned the wooden end cap myself. I added the knob because I hate those end caps that don't give you anything to grab and pull them out. I thought you'd get a kick out of it. My daughter rolled her eyes and called me a freak when she saw it.

I would have sworn I kept a mailing tube from something I bought, but I couldn't find it anywhere.  Then I remembered there were a couple of lengths of 3" thin walled PVC pipe under the deck that were there when we moved here ~25 years ago.  I dug one out, cut off a length, washed it and turned a couple of end caps from a scrap of 2x4.

I would have done the same as Bob but I don't have any scrap PVC large enough. I was headed to the hardware store to buy some when I rememberd the shipping tube in my closet.

I found a lovely little mesquite goblet on my doorstep today. No I don't like it, I love it. It looks great next to my collection of "No you can't have those." on the mantle.

Thanks so much Kathy. It is so fun to see someone else's work.

Received a round package in the mail 10 minutes ago.  It took me that long to get it unpacked.  Bob, it is magnificent!  Thank you!  It is now front and center in my "Rouge's Gallery." 

I don't understand why more people don't get involved with the C&T's just for the thrill of seeing the work of someone like Bob on your own shelf.

I got home last night after a trip out of town for the past week and found a box from Bud in my stack of mail.  It looks great!  Thank you!

Jim, who's left to receive their goblet?
Kevin has not yet said he received the one I sent to him.
Anybody else still waiting?

I lost track of shipping and receiving.  Who has received their goblet that hasn't acknowledged it here yet, and who hasn't received theirs yet?

I've not received it.  I was out of town last week and expected to find it in the pile of mail when I returned, but no luck.  Sad

I went to the post office today to send out my secret Santa ornament and found a package from Lanzarote.

Thanks, Leo!!!  It is a great addition to my collection!  Thanks for the tea, too!

Kathy, I've been sick this week.  Worst head cold I've had in several years.  Anyway, it is ready, just has to be boxes up and taken to the PO.  I even have the box.  I'll try to have it in the mail this weekend for you. 

I haven't received one yet either.  Long time before Christmas though.  We haven't even started to think about decorating yet.

Correction, I have received a wonderful goblet.  It looks fantastic in my rogue's gallery.

I do still have to get my goblet into the mail.  It is not forgotten nor MIA.  I'm just sick.

Thanks folks.  Just spoke with my Dr.'s wife.  If my breathing isn't any better in the morning I think I'll be making a trip in to see him just to make sure it isn't pneumonia.  On the better side of it for sure.  Just have to get rid of this mucus and fluid.  YUK!

I am happy to report that I am still alive and on the mend.  The threat of a Dr's visit seems to have done the trick.  I feel so much better.  Still have lots of sinus and lung gunk, but I don't feel like I might as well die.  Now all I have to do is dig out from under this pile that has accumulated.

Hi Doug, got your package today and it was worth the wait! Really nice goblet and the stem is almost non-existant!

Great!  Seems to have taken quite a while to get there.  So, I assume the stem survived?  Took some hunting to find that tube.  But I thought that if I could get the tube around it then there would be less of a chance for it to be bent or twisted. 

Was I right?  Huh  Or  smiley=doh.gif?  If  smiley=doh.gif I owe you one for sure.
