Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: Here for your perusal is my offering for Leo. Sorry about the lousy pic, but I hope you enjoy it. Cup and base are Olive that was included in one of the wood exchanges we did a while back. The stem is apple, again included in a wood exchange. I wanted to do something more with the stem so I dyed it with Rit dye. Wasn't sure it was actually stay red or not, but as you can see (I hope) it did. Being who I am, there is a significance to the wood selections. 3&quot; diameter 6&quot; tall Finish - Seal-A-Cell, Beale buffed with all three grits Stem has tenon on each end inserted and glued into mortises in both cup and base. I invite your questions, comments, and even your critiques.<br /><br />13 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6557&title=olive-apple-goblet&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6557&title=olive-apple-goblet&cat=582 Wed, 24 Sep 2008 04:12:54 +0000 Cube C&amp;T with a bite out of it. <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6201&amp;title=cube-c-amp-t-with-a-bite-out-of-it&amp;cat=582"><img class="imgborder" title="Cube_Oops.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/582/thumbs/Cube_Oops.jpg" alt="Cube_Oops.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Rev.

Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: Turn for the Cube C&amp;T. Ended up 4 1/4&quot; tall by 6 1/2&quot; wide. Turned on the bias. finish is Seal-a-Cell followed by Beall Buff and Renaissance wax. Found, like a few others, that I was having trouble with two of the corners chipping out. so I sanded and built the chipped corners with coffee. Not a bad solution to this issue. Wound up looking pretty nice IMHO. It has been a while since I used my Beall buffing system so I forgot how grabby it can be. Twice the buffing wheel grabbed this piece and threw it into the box of shavings I keep under the buffer. Look in the OOPS gallery to see the first and worst of the damage. Never did find that chip. Grabbed it a second time and broke the corner completely off. Was able to glue it back without too much contortion. All questions and comments welcome. Toni, it's on the way. I'll make it up to you another time.<br /><br />2 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6200&title=cube-c-amp-t&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6200&title=cube-c-amp-t&cat=582 Sun, 22 Jun 2008 04:16:47 +0000 2008 Challenge Pen for Recon <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=5952&amp;title=2008-challenge-pen-for-recon&amp;cat=582"><img class="imgborder" title="IM001936.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/582/thumbs/IM001936.JPG" alt="IM001936.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: Rev. Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: This is a slim line pen for Recon. Recon, you'll have to remind me/us what the dark wood is. Rosewood? Cocobolo? Anyway, the center band is spalted oak. I don't much care for the slim-line so I had to dress this one up a bit for Recon. Turned beads on top and bottom ends. Sanded to 600 and then went through the micro mesh. Finish is two applications of EEE and 6 coats of Shelawax. A bit of a buff with Carnuba wax to finish it off and whalla. Feels pretty good in the hand. It will write good. Wonder if it writes good enough to make a bad check good. I wouldn't suggest trying it. Just not worth the risk. Hope you like it. 8-)<br /><br />8 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=5952&title=2008-challenge-pen-for-recon&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=5952&title=2008-challenge-pen-for-recon&cat=582 Sun, 20 Apr 2008 01:15:02 +0000 C&amp;T piece for Yakima <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=5663&amp;title=c-amp-t-piece-for-yakima&amp;cat=582"><img class="imgborder" title="Cherry_C_T_2008.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/582/thumbs/Cherry_C_T_2008.jpg" alt="Cherry_C_T_2008.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Rev. Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: Cherry, 8&quot; wide, 3&quot; tall. Finish is 3 coats of Seal-A-Cell to be followed by buffing. I used my coring system to take out the core. I was then attempting to take a second core when I went through the bottom. So, this is what is left. Turned out to be a pretty nice bowl. I did learn that you have to do a bit of pre-thinking with the coring system. A couple minutes of thought might have saved that outer bowl. I still may be able to save it, but it won't be a solid piece of cherry any longer. Oh well, lesson learned. Hope you like it, Larry.<br /><br />5 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=5663&title=c-amp-t-piece-for-yakima&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=5663&title=c-amp-t-piece-for-yakima&cat=582 Sun, 27 Jan 2008 00:40:55 +0000 April 2007 C&amp;T Pen <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=4456&amp;title=april-2007-c-amp-t-pen&amp;cat=582"><img class="imgborder" title="April_07_Trade_Pen_Medium_.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/582/thumbs/April_07_Trade_Pen_Medium_.jpg" alt="April_07_Trade_Pen_Medium_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Rev. Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: Basic slim line pen kit. Turned with &quot;Comfort&quot; pen bushings to give the center a fatter profile. The wood is spalted oak. Center band is Amboyna burl. The oak turned, sanded, and polished real well since it is so hard. The center band is so cool. I've turned a couple of pens of this stuff and they really do polish up well. Never turned my center band before, but I gar-un-tee I'll turn more of them. Way cooler than the center bands that come with most pens. Finish is EEE and Shelawax. A bit of Bee's wax as a final finish and you have a pen that will wear well with time and usage. Bill, use it in good health. 8)<br /><br />4 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=4456&title=april-2007-c-amp-t-pen&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=4456&title=april-2007-c-amp-t-pen&cat=582 Fri, 20 Apr 2007 03:56:08 +0000 Holly C&amp;T Box <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=4026&amp;title=holly-c-amp-t-box&amp;cat=582"><img class="imgborder" title="Holly_Box_for_C_T_c_Medium_.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/582/thumbs/Holly_Box_for_C_T_c_Medium_.jpg" alt="Holly_Box_for_C_T_c_Medium_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Rev. Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: Turned out to be 3&quot;x2/5&quot;. This one is #3 of the four I've turned since taking on this project. I'll show #'s 1 and 4 in another posting. The finish here is Minwax's Clear Coat. It's an outdoor furniture finish that is really hard. Only problem is that I didn't feel I had enough time for it to cure before I buffed it. Took most the finish off with the Tripoli. No problem, the Beall took care of it and I have a nice soft gloss. Just a bit of pop. As I said in the messages, I'll be keeping these in my portfolio. Comments and questions welcome as always. 8)<br /><br />11 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=4026&title=holly-c-amp-t-box&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=4026&title=holly-c-amp-t-box&cat=582 Tue, 30 Jan 2007 04:46:51 +0000 Magnolia and Apple Bird House <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2653&amp;title=magnolia-and-apple-bird-house&amp;cat=582"><img class="imgborder" title="4Magnolia_Apple_croped.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/582/thumbs/4Magnolia_Apple_croped.jpg" alt="4Magnolia_Apple_croped.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Rev.

Still have to finish it, as in cut/sand/glue the perch, add a screw eye, and apply finish. Pic is lame, but I wanted to get a pic on the board before I forgot and sent it out. Should be a nice before and after. I'll try to post a better pic in a day or two after it's finished.

Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: This is a piece of spalted oak burl. Measures 6 1/4 tall x 2 3/4 diameter (OD). The three beads were turned with the skew only. Not sure if you can see the rim or not, but it has a groove all the way around. Was trying to bead the edge of the rim, but there was a bit of a void that was giving me fits. Kind of hate to give this one up since it has such great movement in the wood. Finished with Danish Oil right now and will put a couple coats of lacquer on it to finish it up.<br /><br />8 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2510&title=c-amp-t-candle-stick&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2510&title=c-amp-t-candle-stick&cat=582 Thu, 25 May 2006 04:54:50 +0000 Sumac Goblet for C&amp;T <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2306&amp;title=sumac-goblet-for-c-amp-t&amp;cat=582"><img class="imgborder" title="4Trade_Goblet.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/582/thumbs/4Trade_Goblet.JPG" alt="4Trade_Goblet.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: Rev. Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: Just over 6&quot; tall. Stem is Right at 4&quot; tall and 3/16&quot; in the center. As you can probably see, the ends are smaller. Cup is 2 1/2&quot; dia. as is the base. Finish is my usual Danish Oil. You may remember that I was talking about a problem with the finish. The oil developed a drop on what is top of the base when I had it upside down to drip dry before I was to wipe it off. Of course, I forgot it and allowed it to set up. That's the fix I was talking about having to fix. After the 3rd coat was when the stem warped, so now the cup is just off level. Lots of color in the sumac and nice to turn.

Found this to be harder than I thought it would be. Opens a load of possibilities. Those points do hurt when they whack you. And yes, those are flat spots on the sides. A lot of fun.

Doug Miller<br /><br />Description}: 4x4 spalted maple potpouri piece. Was turned on a face plate with tail stock ingaged until the hollowing began. Used 1/2&quot; and 3/8&quot; bowl gouges on the outside. Started the hollowing process with the 1/2&quot; bowl gouge to open up the center and establish the depth. Used the Sorby Multi-tip tool to do a good bit of hollowing, but then switched to a new tool, Sorby Hollow-Master, to complete the hollowing process. (#1 new thing) Once the hollowing was to my satisfaction, I removed the piece off the lathe (another new tool [see gallery]) and mounted in my new doughnut chuck (the 3rd new tool) to finish off the bottom of the bowl. As you see it here, there are three coats of danish oil on it. I plan on applying at least 3 additional coats if not more. When I am satisfied with the finish, I will hand wax with 2-3 coats of Minwax. New tools: Hollow-Master, lathe (even though I had turned on its twin brother for quite a while), doughnut chuck, and camera (just got it hooked up to the computer for the first time 2 days ago). New skills: Hollowing anywhere near this far, being able to turn the bottom nicely. Mistakes: Nearly opened the mouth too far. The lid has plenty of wiggle room. Could put on a collar like is done with many hollow forms, but time and concience wouldn't allow. 2nd, I made my layout lines from the center of the blank. Had I been between centers, and/or working with a chuck, that wouldn't be such a big deal. Working with a face plate though, you guessed it, I didn't account for the length of the screws. Only one went all the way through, but you can see all three on the bottom, with no way to turn them out. Thanks, Chris, for coming up with the idea. If you hadn't, my lathe might still be in the box. Questions or comments/critiques welcome.<br /><br />11 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=438&title=spalted-maple-potpouri-for-challenge&cat=582 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=438&title=spalted-maple-potpouri-for-challenge&cat=582 Fri, 18 Mar 2005 21:01:19 +0000
