@jldawadm how do you post to the forums.  I have tried to find where but it is not obvious.  You would probably get more posts in the forums if you make it easy to see where to make new posts.

@glenboudreaux Glen,

I agree that the forum can be a bit daunting, but unfortunately we are using a standard package that comes with our web software and we have little control over format and flow.

The standard hierarchy for internet discussion forums including this one is Forum->Topic->Reply. The Forums already exist, so there are 2 ways to post.

For an existing Topic (like Member Creations or a contest thread), go to the topic and reply to the original post it like you did here.  You can also reply to any post already in the Topic like I am doing here to your question. At the bottom of the reply form, you have the option to add an image by attaching a file. It must be less than 2 mb.

You can also add a new topic and post in it. When you first navigate to the Forum there is a button at the top that says "Add Topic". It will have a pull down menu asking you to pick a Forum. There are currently 3:Form Info and Administration, Member Creations and Tools, Tips, Tricks and Workshops. So you could select Workshops, create a topic called "Glen's Place". It has a place for the title and allows you create the first post in it. People can then post replies.

I'll write these instructions up and send them out in the newsletter and post as a topic in Forum.

Here's a cobra head walking stick with a knife hidden in the handle that I turned. It's made of Mahogany and Purpleheart with brass tip, connector and tip and a Celtic knot in Purpleheart. Legal in Texas.

Nice! Do you have to use a steady on the long spindle?

@kevinbassett Nope. But I have a revolving tail stock with a spindle that I can mount a chuck on. Handy for chucking stuff on both head and tailstock at the same time

Post your creations to share at the April Meeting. Here's one to start. This a captive ring rattle made for a neighbor's kid. Made from a single piece of bald cypress. Finished by soaking in food safe mineral oil. no other finish.

Neighbor had an elm tree that split in a storm 18 months ago so I scavenged a couple of big pieces and made this 13 1/2" x 3" bowl. Love the grain.

I turned this oval box in Dec last year. I have turned a couple more this past month for a demo but I do not have photos yet.

Also on topic for this month are my 'ring turned' flags. This project was from 2017. Ring turning is fun and results in multiples... I ended up with about 90 flags from one turning.

This is a real good production trick isn't it. Compared to cutting out 80 or 90 flag blanks 1 at a time, turn the profile once and saw them apart. Cool idea. Simon Beggs mentioned it but didn't cover a lot of detail. Is there a way to index the sawing to keep the thickness even and on the same plane? Or do you just eyeball that part?

@kevinbassett Please read the article and watch my YT video. I indexed the ring, cut it free then used Styrofoam as a middle for centering on my bandsaw sliding table.

Here is a spatula and spoon from my Fantastic Kitchen Utensil demo from late in Jan. Simple hard maple with no finish.

Here is a closer view and shows how the spatula stays on the pot rim. This keeps it at the ready and leaves the mess in the pot or pan and not on the counter or cooktop. Fantastic!!
