Past exhibitors are returning to this 53rd biennial show and registrations are running 20% ahead of 2011 all indicating the prospects for a fabulous show. Of course the major focus of the AWFS Fair is the exhibit hall filled with more than 500 companies displaying their product offerings of woodworking hardware tools and machinery board and panel products upholstery material wood components supplies services and new technologies for the hobbyist shop through large manufacturing concerns. Here you will see everything from scrollsaws to huge machinery that simply output furniture--all in operation with knowledgeable representatives to answer questions. Many exhibitors will be conducting demonstrations and workshops on the exhibit floor. Others offer SMART (Special Machinery and Relevant Technology) seminars at their booths--early each morning before the show opening--for more in-depth discussions of their products. More formal education opportunities are provided through the College of Woodworking Knowledge. These 50 sessions follow along eight tracks Handcrafted Furniture Techniques Cabinet Millwork Management Technology Small Shops Safety and Teachers. Among the handcrafted furniture instructors are Tim Celeski Roland AWFS FAIr retUrnS to LAS veGAS Johnson Darrell Peart and Paul Sch rch (see pages 49-50). The smartSHOP provides experience with a fully operational cabinet shop demonstrating how automated woodworking equipment can increase small shop efficiency. And the Woodwork Career Alliance will conduct Accredited Skill Evaluator training for documenting woodworking proficiencies. An always-popular feature is the exhibition of the finalists in the Fresh Wood Student Design Competition. Top high school and college furnituremakers from across North America compete in various categories and Fair attendees can vote for their favorite pieces. Awards will be announced at a ceremony on Friday July 26. Also the Fair hosts the 2013 WorldSkills Cabinetmaking Qualifying Trial in which the winning high school student will progress to represent the United States in the World Competition. For the fourth year AWFS presents the Belt Sander Racing Association s National Championship Races--as well as a Crash and Smash Demolition Derby on Thursday July 25. Fair attendees can watch belt sanders racing down a 75-foot long 12 wide wooden track or fighting to their death.

We met on a blind date in Chicago and I realized that she was mate material when she readily agreed to accompany me to the American Woodworker Show as our second date. After we married she discovered my woodworking tools and laid claim. Do you have a wife that says--when you bring home a 14 bandsaw-- couldn t you have gotten the 18 To preserve her digits she began taking woodworking classes and proceeded to build out the shop with cabinets benches tables and stands replacing my makeshift crates. She also has crafted numerous pieces for the house from bathroom counters and fireplace mantles to furniture for the bedrooms dining room and den. Often visitors ask if I show her work in the magazine and I reply I will when she wins a First Place in an exhibition (not totally true since I bragged about her Second Place ribbon at the Orange County Fair in 2010 for her nightstands). Now she has called my bluff. She entered a solid Sipo and Mahogany Media Cabinet in San Diego s Design in Wood exhibition. When I arrived to judge Best of Show it became apparent that she had won a category prize and the piece was attracting interest among the jurors of the industry awards. All I knew at the time was that it was not among the list of First Place winners from which I was to choose. Her category prize was a Fourth Place in Contemporary Furniture but her industry award was a First Place in Excellence in Finishing. This is most appropriate rewarding her for hours and hours of sanding and applying coats of oil finish to dramatically bring forth the chatoyance of the grain (not truly reflected in the picture). So Pam has rightfully earned her place in the Design in Wood pictorial (pages 19-23).

I would inlay the black strip slightly oversized into the edging then flush-trim it to create a precise glue surface. Spline or biscuits are called for including in the miters. If you use biscuits position them below the center of the ply to prevent telegraphing up to the veneer surface. It should be fine to glue the edging directly to the plywood since there is long-grain-to-long-grain contact but I would likely add a tongue and groove for added strength and security. I would stay away from plywood and use MDF instead. Even the best plywood is far from flat and that will drive you nuts when you try to get the edging both flush and straight. If you re resawing your own thick veneer you might be able to plane out the wavy surface. As for the feature strip I would make a small rabbet on the inner edge of the edging glue in the strip and flush trim it. I am not fond of MDF but unfortunately I am even less fond of what passes for plywood these days. If you can get some Apple Ply or high quality Baltic Birch and it checks out as flat enough I would go with that. I would make the frame up and let the black strip into it creating a flat interior edge. You can glue it directly to the MDF but out of an abundance of caution I would use a spline. I probably would how Would You Make this top WoodCentral s specialty is its forums where visitors exchange ideas and timely advice on all sorts of topics. The unique value of forum discussions is that you re not relying on one person s say-so when seeking advice. Participants reinforce and help clarify each other s points of view resulting in a broader understanding of the issue at hand and often going off on tangents that further illuminate the topic. Even advanced woodworkers benefit from the collected knowledge and experience of other members. Recently one of our more experienced regulars asked how best to construct this table top (right). It consists of a plywood panel veneered in shop-made Curly Ash edged in solid Curly Ash and inlaid with a narrow African Blackwood feature strip. The replies ran from construction advice to a discussion of veneer substrates... You can glue the frame to the plywood without any type of spline but splines or biscuits Page 10 Woodworker West July-August 2013 put a small biscuit in the miter in the frame. I would use MDF for the substrate and glue the solid wood edging directly to the veneered panel after sealing the edge of the substrate with glue. Splines are a lot of work compared to biscuits. Don t put glue in the biscuit slots if you re worried about telegraphing. After the edging is glued on and flattened rout a 1 8 -deep groove over the joint line for your feature strip. Use pieces of masking tape as your clamp to hold it in while the glue dries then scrape it flush with the table top. Anytime you edge-glue MDF you should size the porous edge of the MDF first. I wet the edge with yellow glue and rub it in. Also MDF is very dusty so be prepared when you rout or saw it. It is also very heavy and comes in oversize sheets because the edges are tender and often need trimming. Definitely size the edges of MDF before glue-up because otherwise they wick the glue away from the joint leaving it weak. You can also use dewaxed shellac to seal the edges to control glue absorption. And I use a spline instead of biscuits as they can telegraph through to the top surface. I m just not a fan of MDF for fine furniture. Apple Ply would be my choice. Chippendale did not use MDF and I tend to agree with those who are reluctant to use it in fine furniture. You build some really nice stuff and I just don t think I could bring myself to use MDF on anything that fine. Most of the criticisms of MDF such as how it performs in wet conditions hold true for any plywood. And Chippendale didn t use plywood either. I don t think you need use a spline for this application as today s glues are better than ever. My advice is to not use plywood for your substrate. Your thick veneer and your glue line may be fine but you will be trusting the face veneer of the plywood to be glued on better than it probably is. If you do use plywood I would test the actual plywood that you are going to use first to make sure the face veneer is bonded well. If the edges chip badly when sawing it that s an indication that the face veneer is flaky or not well bonded to the underlying layers. Industrial particleboard is another good substrate if you want a flat panel. It is harder and stiffer but even heavier than MDF. You decide what you would do in the face of these recommendations.

CoCoboLo FACInG ShortAGe The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) has proposed to add Cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa) to its list of species that are not necessarily threatened with extinction but may become so unless trade is subject to strict regulations. The demand for Cocobolo has dramatically increased in the past few years especially from China and logging both legal and illegal has become extensive. If this proposed listing does take place on June 12th specific export import permits will be required for international shipments of the raw materials and products made of the wood. To beat the deadline there has been a rush to build up inventories and it will likely be a while before a permit process is implemented to allow future shipments of this desirable exotic. As a result don t be surprised to find Cocobolo price increases until new trade procedures are implemented.

He published the first true instructional book on lathe turning--Creative Woodturning (1975)--which was based on his teaching materials at Brigham Young University (where he taught for more than 30 years). His second book--Artistic Woodturning (1980)--addressed the decorative potential of the craft while his third book--Master Woodturners (1985) gave exposure of the featured artists to the greater community. Dale was primarily an educator conducting more than 200 lectures and demonstrations across the country and around the world. In 1979 he organized the first Utah Woodturning Symposium which has become the longest running conference of its kind featuring a star-studded list of demonstrators every year. And his sons have been supplying tools and supplies to the turning and carving communities through Crafts Supplies USA and Treeline. Furthermore he was also a recognized artist mostly known for his natural-edge sand-blasted Wormy Ash vessels. Only last year Woodworker West profiled Dale in celebration of his 80th birthday (May-June 2012). We lost Dale in May doing what he loved. According to his son Darrell he was turning in his shop when he began to feel ill. He was taken to the hospital with a blood clot where he passed away that evening. Eudorah Moore was not as well-known as Dale but she certainly impacted the emergence of studio craft. As Curator of Design for the old Pasadena Art Museum she brought contemporary craft into the museum environment. Through the series of California Design shows wood and other craft artists (including Sam Maloof and Bob Stocksdale) had a vehicle for exposure to the greater art community and the shows became an essential marketing avenues for their careers. When the Pasadena Art Museum became the Norton Simon Museum (1974) she tried to keep California Design alive but it ended with the 1976 show at the newly opened Pacific Design Center. Sam Maloof said of Eudorah Somehow her eyes see things that other eyes may not. But it s her enthusiasm that matters most. Eudorah was 94. July-August 2013 SMIthSonIAn honorS Krenov Many people felt it was a slight that James Krenov s work was not represented in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute s Renwick Gallery in Washington D.C. Besides being known as a Master Craftsman for his iconic cabinetry work he became the voice for aspiring furnituremakers working alone in their shops through his series of books beginning in the mid70s. He then established College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking (CRFW) in Fort Bragg CA in 1981 where he shared his craft with students for more than 20 years. In Oscar Fitzgerald s 2008 book Studio Furniture of the Renwick Gallery he cited the lack of a Krenov cabinet in the Gallery s collection as an oversight. As a result he began a search for a rightful piece and found it with CRFW graduate Roger Moore who wanted others to enjoy the company of Krenov s work. With donations from Oscar and more than 60 CFRW graduates and friends the Ash cabinet (1986) was acquired by the Renwick and installed on display in an informal ceremony in Krenov Ash Cabinet March.

Preserving an Antique Finish I bought this very old Chinese tray with half the lacquer worn off. I want to preserve what is left and use it to work on. Can I paint or spray some kind of clear finish on it Barbara. David s Answer Shellac is your best bet as shellac will stick to almost anything and almost any finish will bond to shellac. You can purchase shellac flakes and mix your own 2 lb. cut with denatured alcohol or the shellac by Bulls Eye works really well and is very convenient to use. The most important part of application is temperature and humidity conditions. Make sure you work with a scrap piece of wood and do some test samples before applying it to your antique Chinese tray. The ideal conditions would be a sunny day with temperatures around 75 to 80 . If it is a rainy or overcast day then do not spray shellac--wait for a dryer day. Shellac can absorb moisture from the air on a day with high humidity levels and the result will be a milky color to the finish. If you can spray it indoors in your studio then make certain that the room space has a thermometer in it and it reads 75 or warmer for best results. When I work on an antique I lightly clean the surface first and try to remove any wax that has been applied over the years. I used to use Naphtha but it has been removed from California s hardware and paint stores for health reasons. Old Asian lacquers are Urushi lacquers which are natural resins from their Sumac trees. Shellac is a natural resin harvested from the Lac bugs in India and other Asian countries. Even if you are not able to lightly clean the surface with a mild solvent I believe the shellac will still bond to it. Cleaning the surface first is still your best option. Since Naphtha is no longer available I would try some mineral spirits instead. Before using the mineral spirits start by lightly brushing the surface with a soft dry paint brush to see if the old finish flakes off or is still intact. Once you have lightly brushed the surface and removed any dust or loose material from it then take an old tee shirt or clean cotton cloth and moisten it with some paint thinner (you can purchase the odorless type which is more user friendly) and gently rub the surface. Do not use any abrasive material like steel wool or Scotch-Brite it can remove some of the finish. Let the surface dry. It might look dull as a result but it should be cleaner. Shellac flows best when it is warm. When I spray it as a solution I have mixed or from a can I always try to warm it first. On a sunny day simply leave the can in the sun until the can feels warm to your hands. I have an oil filled radiator in my finishing room and I place the can on it until it feels really warm or you can just place the can next to a light bulb as a heat source. Shake the can really well and use long light uniformly even strokes across the surface overlapping each stroke. The goal is to apply a light wet uniformly thin coat over the entire surface. The Woodworker West July-August 2013 David Marks has been a studio furniture maker in Santa Rosa CA for nearly 40 years and was the host of the popular woodworking television program Wood Works on the DIY network. He also has been a contributor to Woodworker West since 2004. Over seven seasons David produced 91 episodes of WoodWorks featuring step-by-step instructions for building contemporary studio furniture. He has recently secured a licensing agreement re-edited them and is making them available on his eStore www.djmarks.com estore . In addition to Season 1 and Season 2 Season 3 is now available which can be purchased as a complete DVD of the full 13 episodes or episodes 301 thru 313 can be individually downloaded from the website.

Page 36 surface should look glossy without any dry spots but do not apply too much at a time to the point where it puddles or runs. The great thing about shellac is that in addition to protecting the surface it also acts like a coat of glue bonding everything together. You might want to apply several coats depending upon how it looks. Apply a second coat of shellac before doing any sanding so as not to damage the original finish. After the second coat has dried than lightly sand it with some 600 grit sand paper to smooth and blend the old and new surfaces. If you need to level or smooth the surface then you could go as low as 320 grit. Try not to cut through the shellac into the original finish but if you do just apply another coat of shellac. After the last coat of shellac has dried overnight you could lightly rub it with 0000 steel wool to further smooth and blend everything. I like to follow up with a light coat of Renaissance wax to bring up the soft sheen after it has been dulled by the steel wool. 2. Gluing Up a Tabletop with Unibond 800 I was reading about Unibond 800 and saw that it contains formaldehyde and that people recommend using a respirator when working with it. Is that what you do and how dangerous is it Is there a non-formaldehyde glue that you would recommend that has similar results We talked about bringing the table top to get it drum sanded. Is that done before any final scraping and sanding Nick David s Answer To protect myself from the formaldehyde in the Unibond 800 glue I wear a charcoal respirator. 3M has a low-maintenance half-mask organic vapor P95 respirator assembly. I try to keep the doors open for ventilation and or use a fan but basically I rely on the charcoal respirator to protect my lungs. I have been using this type of glue for over 30 years and the only damage I ve noticed is that people tell me that I look well preserved for my age (61) ha ha ha ha. I don t know of any other glue that works as well that is non-toxic. You could use yellow glue but it won t be as strong as the Unibond plus you will only have 10 minutes or less to get it clamped up. The polyurethane glues are good but there is the foaming out situation that occurs and they still simply are not as strong as the Urea resin glues. After the glue up of the table top I would scrape off any squeeze out then take it to a shop and have it drum sanded to as high a grit as they offer--which would most likely be 180 or possibly even 220 grit. After that I would use a card scraper to remove any scratches left by the drum sander. If someone isn t skilled or comfortable with the card scraper then I recommend using a random orbit sander. Festool makes one of the best which does a great job of removing the coarse scratches and smoothing and blending the surface. July-August 2013 You need to keep checking the surface with a light to look for surface imperfections. This is referred to as observing the surface in the raking light. Translation place a strong light source on the opposite side of you and the table top. As the light rakes across the surface of the wood and you move your head into position to examine each square inch of the surface any imperfections will become exaggerated by the light reflecting off of it thereby illuminating it. Take a piece of chalk and draw a circle around areas that need more sanding. I also like to use a block of wood that I have run over the jointer to create a dead flat surface and attach some sand paper to it and hand sand with the direction of the grain to make sure that the top is flat and doesn t become slightly waving from power sanding. Most power sanders have rubber pads on their bases and sometimes the end result is a surface where the faster (softer) summer growth wears away quicker than the slower (denser) winter growth. This results in a table top that is slightly distorted when observed in the raking light. Often times you can see a slight waviness to the reflection of light on the surface. The goal is to have a glass flat table top and usually this requires some block sanding by hand. 3. Amalgam for Inlay Projects I was in several of your sessions in Arizona and really learned a lot but have questions about the amalgam. I have been looking on eBay and found some so I contacted the seller to make sure it was what I wanted. The seller told me that he wouldn t use it for anything other than recovering the silver and mercury from it since it gets more toxic as it ages and he thought it would also tarnish. He said he used to be a sculptor so he understood what I was wanting to do. Have you had any issues with the toxicity Do you put a finish over it to keep it from tarnishing I love the idea of being able to do an inlay of silver that isn t just a dot using wire and this seemed like a great idea--but now I m worried. Sally David s Answer I encourage you to give it a try and experiment a bit. Micro mesh is something you might try using to polish the silver to a higher sheen. The seller on Ebay might have some really old amalgam from what you described. I suggest talking to your Dentist and attempting to purchase some through he or she. You should expect to pay approximately one dollar per capsule. Also see if you can get capsules that are not green colored. My understanding is that the green colored capsules dry faster reducing your working time to two minutes. Some of the other colors will give you three minutes of working time. As for mixing I have used duct tape to hold the capsules to a jig saw blade and after 15 seconds at high speed you can remove the capsule and twist off the cap and begin packing it into a groove. Make sure that you wear nitrile gloves to protect your hands. Page 37 Woodworker West Tools & Techniques Kickstarting Your Business or Getting a Project Off the Ground You have an idea for a business (or a side activity to generate an income stream) or simply want to undertake a specific project. Now you need capital for equipment materials facilities marketing and distribution. Traditional sources for funds may not be available (savings financial institutions friends your parents) but a new alternative has emerged called crowd funding in which contributions are sought from the public over the Internet--sort of like going public without sharing ownership. The best known vehicle for this course of funding is Kickstarter (kickstarter.com). It has recently become the darling of independent filmmakers as hundreds of projects have been financed in just the last 18 months. Most notable the producers of Veronica Mars were able to raise 5.7 million from 91 585 backers in just 12 hours towards a movie version of the cult television series and actor Zach Braff collected 3.1 million from 46 520 donors for a sequel to his movie Garden State. However most Kickstarter projects are much more modest and it even has become a source of funding for woodworking endeavors. wHAt Is KICKstARteR Kickstarter is an Internet website which assists project creators in raising funds to develop their proposals. Projects are explained on the website in text pictures and videos and a funding goal and deadline are set. People who like the project can pledge support by submitting an amount and credit card information to Kickstarter who holds the funds in an escrow account. Helvey Design Studio s production of its initial line of furniture was supported in part by funding provided by the website Kickstarter.com. The Coffee Table (18 h 42 w 32 d) above is available in Oak or Walnut with a black or white metal finish. The Dining Table (29 h 66 w 36 d) below is available in the same finishes. This is an all or nothing affair. Projects must reach their funding goal in the allocated time period to receive the money otherwise the credit cards will not be charged. The strategy for the proposer is to chose a funding level that comes close to meeting their needs yet has a good potential for being met by contributors. Set too high they may get nothing. This all or nothing approach encourages submitters to rally support often using social media outlets for their projects and insures backers that their contributions will not be wasted on underfunded causes. Since its launch in 2009 more than 4.2 million people have pledged over 649 million funding more than 42 000 creative endeavors. The website claims that 44% of requests have reached their funding goals. Since no ownership shares are involved in the investments donors often receive premiums for their contributions (sort of like PBS pledge night tote bags). Benefits can range from being informed on the projects progress to samples one of the final products or--in the case of movies--a part in the production. In some cases the Kickstarter appeal simply provides a way of securing pre-orders for the proposed product. On the other hand some people contribute simply to foster a dream want- Page 38 Woodworker West July-August 2013 ing nothing in return. As for Kickstarter it takes a 5% fee of the funds distributed. The only negative is that the proposers are exposing their idea publicly for all to see. FUNDeD wOODwORKING PROJeCts Cameron Helvey of San Diego CA turned to Kickstarter to get his Helvey Design Studio off the ground. The graduate of the San Diego State Furniture Design Program wished to make quality handmade sustainable residential furniture at a price similar to items made overseas. He created a series of prototypes for his wood and metal furnishings but required financing to cover raw materials labor packaging and distribution for his initial production. Last April he began his Kickstarter campaign setting a goal of 14 500. He offered such premiums as a key chain business card holder bottle opener cheese board lamps end tables chairs coffee tables bench desk and dining room table for different funding levels. During the 1-month period ending on May 28th his project was funded with commitments of 14 675. You can follow the development of Cameron s new career at www. helveydesignstudio.com. For furnituremaker John Leko of Huntsville AL his support request pertained to a single project. He has been taking classes at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking between jobs over the past several years and to complete his Michael Fortune Fellowship he needed to design and construct a significant piece of furniture. His chosen project is to replicate a 1750 French Mechanical Table by Jean-Fran ois Oeben which converts from a dressing table to a writing desk with a turn of a key. Having been exposed to it in a YouTube video he had the opportunity to see the piece in person at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles last summer where he was allowed to photograph it and take measurements. He has been able to develop shop drawings and templates but the stumbling block was the over 6 000 in material costs. In January he put his proposal on Kickstarter with such donor benefits as recognition on the project s website photographs when the piece is completed a hand-cut marquetry flower personal instruction and invitations to the debut of the finished piece. He also offered to sell the prototype table for 5 000 but there were no takers. But still he was able to raise 8 000 in a 39-day window from 101 backers. You can follow his progress at the website www.jleko.com weblog. David Rasmussen of Carbondale CO is not a newcomer to the furniture business he was profiled in Woodworker West in November 2010. The following year his furniture studio burned down from unknown causes and he lost over 100 000 in tools and completed handmade pieces. To get back into business the local community conducted an art auction on his behalf he has received some grants and he solicited funding on Kickstarter to help replace his machinery. His plans are to produce a line of products in addition to making more accessible custom furniture. His list of premiums included a sampling of his production items and furniture pieces which attracted 106 backers to surpass his proposed goal of 15 000. Most Kickstarter-listed projects tend to fall in the craft category. Pens bowls boxes lamps tableware and jewelry are traditional items seeking funding for materials or a new piece of equipment. These requests tend to fall in the 1 000- 5 000. July-August 2013 John Leko stands behind the Mechanical Table (29 h 29 w 15 d) by Jean-Fran ois Oeben (circa 1750) in the permanent collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum. It is Oak veneered with various dyed woods iron mechanism and gilt-bronze mounts. David Rasmussen Lego Table Poplar acryllic steel (20 h 20 dia) David Rasmussen Plate Maple (7 3 4 sq) Woodworker West Page 39 range. David Allred of Salt Lake City UT funds each series of pens in separate requests. Last Fall he set a goal of 500 for Handcrafted Pens Made from Exotic Woods and received 3 700 in support. In the Spring he raised the goal to 1 500 for Handmade Pens Made from Australian Woods and he received 6 485 in pledges. Since all these pledgers seem to have received pens as premiums it looks like David uses Kickstarter as a retail outlet. Tom Casper of Kettering OH seems to have done the best in this category collecting 11 529 from 162 supporters for his pens made from Oak Barrels used to age Jack Daniels Jim Beam Makers Mark or Wild Turkey. Tom Casper s pens made from Oak Barrels used to age Jack Daniels Jim Beam Makers Mark and Wild Turkey. An item of growing interest from several producers are wood coverings for electronics such as iPhones and iPads. There is also a studio out of Brooklyn NY that received nearly 15 000 for MacBook and Apple computer keyboards with keys made from Rosewood and Bamboo. David Laituri of Framingham MA accumulated 1 309 backers for 194 682 in support of 1Q a compact powerful Bluetooth sound system with a handcrafted solid wood cabinet--perfect for iPhones and iPads. A San Diego company Original Grain sought 10 000 for production of its next generation of wood watches and received over 390 000. Similarly NFNT of Laie HI garnered 101 607 for its Big Face Woody Bamboo watch. Proof of Boise ID is an eco-eyewear company that strives to make cool products from sustainable sources of wood. They use Kickstarter to add new products to their established line. In the summer of 2011 they proposed classically-designed Bamboo framed sunglasses with springed hinges using only panda bear-friendly bamboo. They raised 15 427 and most of the contributors received sunglasses. In the summer of 2012 Proof returned with a proposal for a wood wallet. It is made with a piece of sustainable wood which offers rigidity and protection for your stuff. A single recycled bicycle inner tube holds all your business cards credit cards cash etc. in place. We ve used two sustainable woods quick growing Bamboo and clean-looking Birch to make the minimalist wood frame that acts as the backbone of all your cards and cash. Coming in at just 3mm thick they are light strong and good looking. Though their goal was only 2 000 they received 768 responses for a total of 31 461. The incentive for most were receiving the product. Then there is the fun and games. Matthew and Mark McLachlan of Denver CO received 10 180 for a new board game made of solid woods called Storm the Gate Bibelot Games of Phoenix AZ received 27 879 for laser engraved wooden playing cards 25 194 for The Reliquary Collection of games and 9 915 for The Midnight Collection of eight Monsters & Mayhem games with wood pieces and Daniel Young of Honolulu HI received 43 217 for handcrafted longboard skateboards made of premium exotic and Hawaiian woods. In addition Charlie Brumfield of July-August 2013 David Laituri s 1Q Bluetooth sound system in crafted wood cases. Original Grain s Maple Wood Watch NFNT s Big Face Woody Bamboo Watch Proof s Bamboo Sunglasses (above) and Wood Wallet Money Clip (left) Page 40 Woodworker West Mesquite TX received 91 542 for Artisan Dice crafted from various woods (including 50 000 year old ancient Kauri wood) and 291 920 for Polyhedral Sided Dice made from a variety of exotic species. Michael Woods of Mountain View CA attracted the greatest number of backers among the woodworkers with 1 876 people funding 96 248 for a snap-together model Trebuchet. This Middle Age catapult is billed as perfect for office warfare or annoying your roommate and almost all the contributors wanted one. Kickstarter also has been used to raise money for educational ventures. Woodworkers Clubhouse in Buffalo NY is an open access community wood shop that offers educational classes. This organization sought funding in 2012 to bring their space into building code compliance and purchase tools. The goal of 5 000 was met by 39 backers to total 6 448. Premiums included crafted gift items and club memberships. Grain Surfboards of Maine the most experienced builder of hollow wood boards sought 38 500 to share the rewards and the fun of building wooden surfboards to the West Coast. Their objective was to purchase customize and equip a truck into a mobile classroom to offer workshops as they drove up Pacific Coast Highway probably surfing the entire way. During their 30-day window they did attract 474 backers to the tune of 43 184 with offers of various promotional items and instructional lessons. Finally there is C.C. Boyce. She came to Los Angeles for an acting career and now she is getting a Fine Woodworking and Cabinet Maker certificate from El Camino College in Torrance CA. Her concept is Would You Woodwork a comedic instructional woodworking web series giving very basic information about different equipment in the woodshop. Obviously she s already developed an audience for her show since she surpassed her goal of 7 500 with contributions from 153 people. And within two months of funding she shot video for four different programs covering the band saw planer vertical belt sander drill press table saw and the lathe. I think some people on the crew became converts the make-up artist turned her own pen on the lathe before she left I think these videos are going to do what I wanted them to do which is take the mystery out of the woodshop and show people than anyone can do it and it s fun Editting is almost complete with a target of July for posting them on the Internet.

NOt ALL ARe wINNeRs This is not to say Kickstarter is the home of free money as there are plenty of proposals that did not achieve funding. However it is a potential avenue to get a business or project going or a way to gain market visibility and gather pre-sale orders. There are also a number of websites emerging with strategies of how to best achieve success on this service. If you haven t yet its worth taking a look at www.kickstarter. com. July-August 2013 Woodworker West Page 41 Turning Topics An excerpt from AAW s Safety for Woodturners Safety Lessons Twenty Ways Not to Turn a Bowl I have been teaching woodturning for more than 20 years and many of the classes have been basic for beginners or an introduction to woodturning. You can ask anyone who has been involved in one of these classes and they will tell you that my most frequently used direction is Stop don t do that by Nick Cook Anyone who teaches basics expects to have raw beginners in a class. We also expect novices with just a little experience and even expect a few who have been turning for a number of years. The teacher s challenge is getting all of the students on the same page in the same book at the same time. Adult learners seem to have their own ideas about how to turn and some are not the least interested in how I want them to turn. Some are self-taught some have attended other classes. Others have read woodturning books and watched videos. And others ... must have been timetraveling to their eighth-grade shop classes when someone was attempting to instruct them. THE RIGHT STOCK One of the biggest problems teachers face is that many students are itching to turn a really large bowl the first time they step up to the lathe. Or they lug in something that cost them big bucks. Since 1986 the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) has been publishing American Woodturner magazine as an educational resource on woodturning techniques. AAW has begun to compile theme publications extracting topical articles published over the past 26 years. The first is Getting Started in Woodturning a 4-book series for the novice woodturner. The first title is Safety for Woodturners (64 pages color) consisting of 17 articles on various aspects of woodturning safety. This selection from the book is by nationally-known woodturner and educator Nick Cook. Nick operates his own studio in Marietta GA where he produces gifts items (such as wine stoppers baby rattles rolling pins spinning tops and honey dippers) and one-of-a-kind bowls and vessels for retail outlets and galleries across the country. He is also wellknown as an a teacher and demonstrator conducting workshops throughout the U.S. Australia and New Zealand. Other titles in the Getting Started in Woodturning series (which will be available shortly) are Lathes and Turning Tools Learning at the Lathe and Practical Woodturning Projects. Each book of the Getting Started in Woodturning series is available for 14.95 (printed) 9.95 downloaded from the website www.woodturner.org Shop Products.asp. Page 42 Stop Don t do that 1. Too Big. You will learn a lot more about turning techniques by turning lots of small shallow bowls than you ever will by turning one or two really large pieces. No matter how eager you are to turn your first keeper don t begin turning with large or expensive stock. 8 -diameter stock on the headstock is more appropriate. Woodworker West July-August 2013 2. Too Valuable. Whatever you do do not pay for practice wood. There is plenty of free wood out there-- the stuff really does grow on trees. Ask around at your AAW chapter you ll find a resourceful group with plenty of practice pieces. 3. Too Hard. Green wood is a great way to start. Wood lots and local tree cutters are great sources for practice materials. 4. Too Deep. Start out with a small (8 -diameter) platter before attempting any type of bowl. When you are comfortable with that transition to a shallow bowl-- just slightly deeper but still about 8 in diameter. Keep the form open rather than making the openings smaller. The smaller the opening the harder it is to cut the interior. 5. Not Ready for Prime Time (or finish). Don t worry about applying finish to anything--that will come later. Think practice pieces. I suggest that you use a screw chuck or faceplate and turn shapes that resemble bowl forms until you get to the point of becoming comfortable with the bowl gouge. When you get to where you do not have to think about what the tool is doing you are ready to turn a bowl. Once you get a few decentlooking forms turn the bowl around and begin hollowing the interior. Then get out the finish. THE RIGHT SPEED Too often novice woodturners go from turning spindles to turning bowls without adjusting the lathe speed. Too big and too fast is a deadly combination. Stop Don t do that Here s a good habit to develop Before you turn on your lathe always stand to the left or right of the chuck. Here s a safer plan Start the lathe at a low speed or use the setscrew in the chuck to lock it onto the spindle. 8. Standing in the WrongPlace. You should always stand to one side of the workpiece (out of the path of the spinning blank) when you turn on your lathe as shown in the photo above. 6. Too Much Speed. Before mounting stock between centers or on a faceplate or chuck switch on the lathe without anything mounted. This will give you the opportunity to see where the speed was set when the lathe was last used. Developing this habit will prevent an accident. THE RIGHT TOOL Before anyone stands in front of a lathe I review all of the tools their uses and how to sharpen each. I identify each tool explain how it is used show how to sharpen it and also show the various cuts that can be made. I also explain what each tool is not designed to do. But sometimes that s not enough. Stop Don t do that 9. No Roughing-Out Gouge for Bowl Work. For bowl turning never turn with a roughing gouge. This should be a no-brainer but I have seen it done. In my mind this tool should be referred to as a spindle roughing gouge. I encourage students to reduce the speed of their machines at the end of every turning session. This is easy on variable-speed lathes but I meet resistance when students are learning on machines with step pulleys. Do it anyway it s never too early to develop good safety habits. 7. Too Much of a Hurry. Another problem that can ruin your day occurs when you have a large piece on the lathe and stop the machine too quickly. This happened to my friend Andy Marinos who suggested adding this tip to the Don t Do list. To turn the bottom of a bowl Andy mounted his large flat jaws on his scroll chuck and mounted the rim of the bowl in the jaws. Without checking the speed he turned on the lathe. It was going much too fast for the task at hand. Andy quickly hit the stop button on the machine and the motor stopped. But the chuck and the bowl had enough momentum to keep spinning--even with the lathe stopped. When it came off the spindle the assembly caught his hand between it and the tool rest. Andy s wound required numerous stitches. July-August 2013 The bowl gouge top is the only one of the three lathe tools you should use for your bowl projects. Page 43 Woodworker West Here s a classic example. One student mounted a large square blank on a lightweight lathe and turned it on at too high of a speed. Needless to say I screamed from across the room Stop don t do that When I got to where he was working I also discovered that he was about to attack the piece with a 1 spindle roughing gouge. Oh and it wasn t sharpened yet it had just come out of the box. You should not use the skew on a bowl either 10. Big Gap at Tool Rest. One of the most common problems is extending the tool too far out over the tool rest. Many times students will continue cutting without moving the rest any closer to the blank. Once the tool extends more than 1 or so beyond the rest stop the machine and move the tool rest closer. Lathe tools have been known to break over the tool rest--a very bad thing. The height of the tool rest is determined by the tool you are using and your height and stance. Always place the tool on the rest first touch the back of the tool to the blank then gently lift the tool handle until the bevel makes contact with the wood. This will ensure the bevel supports the cutting edge. You will be less likely to get catches this way. When turning the outside of a face-grain bowl turn from the bottom to the top (sometimes described as uphill). the interior of your bowl cut downhill or from the rim to the center. 14. No Body Movement. You are not bolted to the floor. To produce better curves use your body and move it through an arch. Learn that woodturner s sway. Place the tool handle against your hip and hold the handle with your right hand near the shaft and your left hand on the tool rest. Keep your left hand on the tool rest throughout the cut to provide additional support. Remember if you move your feet you move the pivot and lose the curve. Learn to swing your body but don t move your feet. 11. Moving the Tool Rest with Lathe Running. Don t even think about it Never move the tool rest with the lathe running. 12. Not Following the Curve. It is not uncommon for a beginner to make straight cuts along the length of the tool rest correctly move the rest closer but continue to cut in a straight line. To produce better profiles move the tool rest around the shape of the bowl. The result is a cone-shaped bowl. This is where a curved tool rest can be helpful although not a necessity. Work on a continuous curve--not thinness. 13. Wrong Direction. For face grain bowls cut uphill or from bottom to top on the exterior of the bowl. On 15 . Dull Tools. Beginners also have a problem determining whether a tool is sharp or not. It takes experience to be able to tell. Different woods react differently to being cut. Most beginners merely increase pressure as the cutting edge gets dull. This can be dangerous. When in doubt sharpen the tool. And the best way to sharpen a tool for beginners is with jigs and fixtures they all work and they all provide excellent results. Hand sharpening also works after you learn what you are doing but the jigs and fixtures will provide consistent results each and every time. As your bowl takes shape stop the lathe frequently and move the tool rest to about 1 from the stock. Page 44 When you remove stock from the interior of a face-grain bowl always begin at the rim and work toward the center (also described as downhill). July-August 2013 Woodworker West Be sure to touch up your edge on the grinder before making your final cut. A dull tool will pull or tear at the fibers leaving a surface that you can t sand smooth. This is especially true on end grain. Each instructor will show you his or her favorite grind for the bowl gouge. They all work if you take the time to learn how to use them. It is more important that you learn to consistently reproduce the grind you are using than which profile you choose. Grinding by hand is important to learn but for the beginner jigs and fixtures are a great help. 16. Too Much Pressure. Another common problem is applying too much pressure when cutting the surface. This will force the heel of the tool into the surface and bruise the fibers leaving lines that remain invisible until you apply finish. Yikes These lines are almost impossible to sand away. You must recut the surface. Relax and let the cutting edge do the work rather than forcing it. THE RIGHT MOUNT A lot of bowl-turning problems begin with how the material is attached to the lathe. Because every new lathe is shipped with a faceplate this is the obvious choice for the beginning woodturner. Stop Don t do that If you want your bowl to stay in the chuck you ll learn the value of properly sizing the tenon. If the chuck loosens the bowl will fly out off the lathe. Sheet metal screws are a better choice to attach turning stock to a faceplate. These screws are casehardened and have deeper and sharper threads. Make sure you choose a length that is appropriate. Square-drive screws are also popular and are much easier to remove from hardwood. For securing turning stock one size does not fit all. For an 8 -diameter blank that is up to about 2 thick I recommend 8 screws. For a 14 8 blank secure with 14 1 1 2 hardened screws. 17. Wrong Screws. Trouble can begin at the first step when you screw the blank to the faceplate. Here several problems can occur. It usually starts with drywall screws they are too thin and too brittle. You exacerbate the problem when you draw up drywall screws with a power screwdriver which pulls them up tight and snaps them. 18. Difficult Grain. You must also consider the material you will be putting the screws into. End grain requires larger and longer screws. Beware of punky or spalted woods once the wood has started to decay it is extremely difficult to get a screw to hold. Sapwood does not hold screws as well as heartwood. To be on the safe side bring up the tailstock with a live center for insurance. This will give additional support if the screws do not hold. Choose turning stock that offers a better chance for success. Dale Nish says it best Life is too short to turn crappy wood 19. Poor Grip. Once you get excited about turning it probably won t be long before you purchase a 4-jaw scroll chuck which I think holds material better on the lathe. However this chuck has its own set of challenges. I have had many instances where students have made tenons too small or the recesses too shallow. Either case can cause the blank to separate from the chuck. Punky wood and sapwood present the same challenges and grain problems as noted above. 20. Loose Fit. Green wood requires you to tighten the jaws of the chuck repeatedly as moisture is forced from the blank. Just as with the faceplate remember to use the tailstock and center whenever possible. Turn safely and have fun. But by all means think about what you are doing and consider the risks involved. If you are unsure ask someone with more experience. If it looks dangerous it probably is. Stop don t do that Page 45 Sheet-metal screws should be your only choice for mounting turning stock to faceplates. At right you can see how a drywall screw can break off which leads to huge safety issues.

His exquisite handcrafted detailed pieces feature classical elements with a contemporary flare. Meet Ken in his own words Woodworking was a hobby that turned into a profession. I have been working with my hands for as long as I can remember--from building little Balsa wood airplanes to working with tools in my father s modest shop. What I learned most from my father was attitude. He didn t make a lot but whatever he made was to the highest quality. In high school I took a lot of drafting classes which lead to a job at Boeing after graduation. In my early 20 s I purchased a shop full of power and hand tools for a song from a friend of a friend moving away and I started making little boxes frames spice racks and other knick-knacks to give to people or sell at craft fairs. Though I enjoyed drafting by hand I saw my position at Boeing transitioning to CAD and I did not relish a future of sitting in front of a computer. I decided to try to make my living woodworking. I found construction work for 2-3 days a week to support myself and spent the rest of the week working in my shop. I had expected to be doing a lot of cabinets but I was pleasantly surprise to find people trusting me with furniture projects from the beginning. As I got enough business I was able to shift to full-time. My initial work was along traditional lines utilizing such domestic woods as Eastern Walnut Cherry and Oak. As I was able to make more contemporary spec pieces I began showing work at Northwest Fine Woodworking (now the Northwest Woodworkers Gallery) in Seattle which exposed me to a clientele with a broader spectrum of tastes. This allowed me to follow my heart and start experimenting with contemporary forms in exotic woods. I consider my current work to be classically-inspired contemporary offering new interpretations to give a more modern presentation. My pieces are highly detailed using fine accent woods ridge lines shaped surfaces my own hand-created hardware and recently more extensive use of intarsia inlay work (as seen in the Lakeside Dining Set on the cover). Most of my work is one-of-a-kind but for some speculative projects I ve done small sets of 2-4 pieces of the same design. This helps to make the hands-on work more efficient and allows me to devote more time to design as this investment is distributed over several pieces. For such sets I usually make each piece out of a different wood. It s amazing what distinct personalities can be achieved when the only difference is the woods. Most of my early technique lessons came from books and magazines and being self taught I learned by doing a number of things wrong. A benefit to this approach is that it teaches you how to problem solve which has given me confidence over the years to tackle things that are above my head. I work with solid thick stock the thicker the better. Not all the spectacular trees end up in the veneer mills. I have a weakness for beautiful lumber and I m willing to devote considerable effort to finding Secretary Figured European Pear Ebony sterling silver (104 h 44 w 25 d) Ken Richards takes pleasure in the solitude of working with hand tools.

Over the years I ve stashed away quite a collection. I love working with hand tools. From joinery to fine details to flowing curved surfaces. Hand tool work puts me in a place where I am completely focused and involved in the moment. The time flies by. I do a lot of work with spokeshaves chisels gouges and rasps. There are many days that not a machine is turned on. As my skills with hand tools have grown they have opened up exciting design directions that I would not otherwise have pursued. When I bought my 5-acres in Maple Valley WA I converted the barn into my woodshop. In 1991 I had a Breakfront Showcase Figured Ceylon Satinwood Ebony brass (74 h 42 w 17 d) fire and lost that building my tools and a big project that was just ready to deliver. It was a fairly traumatic thing to go through but it gave me the opportunity to construct a building that was specifically-designed to be an efficient woodworking shop which turned out to be a real blessing. I feel very spoiled. In the future I look forward to finding more time to undertake speculative work. I want to explore creating more organic forms and I m exited about pursuing projects that are purely sculptural. You can see more of my work and details at my website www. kenrichardsfurniture.com.

The finished piece certainly has the vibe of the publicity picture. MoSer ChAIrS At the bUSh LIbrArY The Harpswell Chair by Thos. Moser Cabinetmakers was front stage at the opening of the George W. Bush Library and Museum located in Dallas TX. A set of the American Black Cherry chairs provided seating for the five living American Presidents and their spouses at last April s Dedication Ceremony. The furnituremaker in Auburn ME was commissioned to make about 60 pieces for the complex including 20 Harpswell chairs 15 research desks 12 benches eight conference room tables and a large proctor s desk. Kittinger Furniture Co. of Buffalo NY was given the task of recreating the furnishings for the Library s replication of the Oval Office. They also were commissioned to create furnishings for the new movie White House Dawn. MUSIC WIth A WooD tone This is not likely to become a big seller but Amanda Ghassaei of instructables.com has created the first laser-cut wooden record out of Maple (right). Using an Epilog 120 Watt Legend EXT the laser cuts at approximately 120 dpi and the sampling rate is 4.5 KHz. Since the grooves are 10 times the width of a vinyl LP each side can hold only 3 minutes of recording. Songs are recognizable but it might make a better decorative sculpture instead.
