  • A Woodturning Internet Rabbit Hole

    I did an internet search the other day and I have no clue now just what I was searching for. One link I encountered took me to KurtHertzog.com. You guessed it - down the rabbit hole I went. You may or may not know Kurt Hertzog but he is a well-known author and demonstrator on woodturning and a past president of AAW. I was surprised when I read About Kurt Hertzog on his website and learned what all he has done. The "Rabbit Hole". All of Kurt's publications are available for viewing and downloading. I hope you are as impressed as I am. (I believe I came out of the rabbit hole after many hours and bookmarking the webpage so I can return later.) Click on the rabbit below if you are brave enough: Here is just a very small sample of what you will find inside the rabbit hole: 39 - Woodturning Magazine Articles - Kurt's Clinic Column 13 - American Woodturner Magazine Articles 5 - Woodturning Magazine Miscellaneous Article 5 - Woodturning FUNdamentals Magazine Article 50 - Woodturning Magazine Articles - What You Need to Know About Series 14 - Woodturning Magazine Articles - Workholding Series 14 - Woodturning Magazine Articles - Woodturning Know How Series 31 - Woodturning Design Magazine "Journey from Penturning to Penmaking" Column 24 - Woodturning Design Magazine "Behind the Scenes" Column 19 - Woodturning Design Magazine Miscellaneous Articles and there is so much more!

  • Wig Stand Demonstration - Completing the Paperwork

    As mentioned during my June club-meeting demonstration, "the wig stand is not done until the paperwork is completed". I am pleased to say that all of the demonstration wig stands are now completed, along with two additional ones made from leftover components. "The paperwork" was completed by entering each of the stand's information into MSWG's online tracking form. As promised here is the presentation I used in the demonstration. It is a PDF and can be downloaded by using the button/link below. The plastic bags seen in the photo are from Amazon "Value Pack - Bread Loaf Plastic Bags 8” x 4” x 20”, 700-count ". I bake bread and already had them on hand. Click on the photos to enlarge.

  • Re: MSWG Beads of Courage Program

    The Mid South Woodturners Guild (MSWG) began their support of the National Beads of Courage Program in late 2015 by donating MSWG-made boxes to Memphis’ own Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. This unique local connection with Le Bonheur became a point of pride for members. Unfortunately for MSWG, Le Bonheur ended their participation in the national BoC program at the end of 2021. MSWG and our national organization (The American Association of Woodturners / AAW) continue to support the Beads of Courage program. But without our local donation-point, MSWG member-makers will now be responsible for the cost of shipping their finished boxes to the national Beads of Courage headquarters in Arizona. There will be collection-points during the Tennessee Association of Woodturners (TAW) Regional (Franklin, TN), the Southwest Association of Turners [SWAT] Regional (Waco, TX), and the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) International Symposiums (various cities in the USA). Some of the MSWG members who attend these events have offered to transport finished BoC boxes on behalf of MSWG. Bottom line - If you would like to continue YOUR participation in the Beads of Courage box-making effort, please know that you must either (a) ship your finished boxes to BoC National at your own expense or (b) coordinate with members planning to attend the collection-point events listed above. If you have BoC-related questions, please contact MSWG’s BoC chairman Joseph Voda.

Some cancer patients can go through periods of heavy sweating, especially during the summer. One of the purposes of the stand is to let the wig dry after they take it off. Most say to use a good polyurethane on the top piece just for that reason. ​ Information from other Woodturner groups: Woodturning Wig Stand For Cancer Patients - YouTube - As Wood Turns Wig Stand directions Wig Stand Instructions (Ron Cumsty, GHWG) Step by step directions Making A Wig Stand - CIW How to make a wig stand - CIW To correct table or an error send an email to webmaster@mswg.club Submission Date First Name Last Name How Many Special comments Photo Photo 06/29/2022 Don Chandler 2 Cedar 06/29/2022 Larry Sefton 1 Wood MDF, curbside wood, and General Finishes Milk paint. 06/29/2022 Larry Sefton 1 Wood MDF, curbside wood, and General Finishes Milk paint. 06/29/2022 Larry Sefton 1 Wood MDF, curbside wood, and spray paint. 06/29/2022 Larry Sefton 1 Wood MDF, curbside wood, and General Finishes Milk paint. 06/29/2022 Larry Sefton 1 Wood MDF, curbside wood, and General Finishes Milk paint. 06/29/2022 Larry Sefton 1 Wood MDF, curbside wood, and General Finishes Milk paint. 06/29/2022 Larry Sefton 1 Wood MDF, curbside wood, and General Finishes Milk paint. 06/23/2022 Skip WIlbur 2 Bubinga & maple 15.5" ht x 6" diam.
