Henry Aglio created another artistic metal sculpture and topped it with one of his signature bowls a€“ a fine creation. Linda Williams sent along a tray of pineapple cake that was a fine accompaniment to the WV bean soup that Ron Thompson prepared for the lodge lunch.
Thank you for your contribution of wonderful a€?cracker bowlsa€? to the 2014 Empty Bowls Event. Yesterday, amidst the normal hubbub of Turning Tuesday, Wayne Towner, a reporter for the local newspaper, gathered relevant information and gained an insight into the quintessence of Codger Lodge.
Waynea€™s assignment is to gather material and write a community interest story featuring Codger Lodge. Ron Thompson brought an assortment of bowls and platters with both solid wood and segmented construction. Jim Morrison displayed a walnut and two apple burl bowls.A Henry Aglio had another of his artistic pieces featuring a metal sculpture base supporting a wooden torus top turning. Turning Tuesday at Codger Lodge this week was a a€?sit by the fire and read a good booka€? kind of a day. The whole codger experience was enhanced with two boxes of doughnuts and two pots of coffee. Mikey finished the spalted maple bowl that he started last week and Walt Tuttle had a very nice salad bowl that he turned from butternut.
John Smith finished his well-executed laminated fruit bowl, John Wolf turned a flawless lidded box, and Walt Tuttle displayed his fine segmented bowl.
This week after the codgers had called it a day, Mikey and I visited with the Cub Scouts of Pack 129.
The codgers of the lodge, without exception, are generous and enthusiastic when it comes to helping others. We do not have quarters for muster to convey the a€?plan of the daya€? at Codger Lodge nor a First Sargent to dispense duty assignments and motivational words. This week at the lodge there were two boxes of doughnuts, a large tray of cookies, a bag of biscotti, a pecan pie, and Girl Scout cookies in reserve.
This is not another metal sculpture idea from Henry Aglioa€™s fertile mind taking shape; but rather a random arrangement of Jimmy Morrisona€™s bowl turning tool rests.
There are fifty-some bowls in our Empty Bowls collection and they are on their way to be delivered for the charity event. This is written by a fine woodworking comrade, Bill Sands of Lubeck, West Virginia, who has taught us much in the patients and fortitude of woodworking.
We bring this preface to you followed by a weekly continuance article complete with photos from The Taradiddle Tribune written by Bill Sands.
He and I began meeting in my workshop once or twice a week to ground him in the basic milling and wood joining techniques. It became apparent that Mikey was destined to be a wood turner and needed more advanced instruction and advice than I could provide. The poet, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, never met Mikey; however, she must have known someone like him to inspire this work. Begin smoothing one face of the board with a hand-plane or joiner, then smooth an edge as well. Cross-Cut the board to make a perfect square, then mark the corner to corner punch the center. Remove the faceplate, attach the chuck with blank to the lathe, and begin the turning process.
After completion of cutting the inside shape of the bowl, cut the underside shape and sand the entire bowl.
Two finished square bowls that can be used as coasters, a jewelry tray, paper clip holders for your desk, or for whatever your imagination and design requirements may be.
This is written by John Moody, woodworker and site admin for The Patriot Woodworker website. In the past few weeks while helping to clean out an old building, I ran upon this old wooden plane which at the time was quite dusty and dirty. While spraying some finish on a table this week and waiting for it to dry between coats I decided to take the old plane and clean it up and see if there were any markings on it. In 1783 Enos Baldwin was born in Cavendish, VT and in 1807 He comes on the scene as a toolmaker in Albany, NY.
So after finding the name of the plane iron I got out some Murphy’s Oil Soap and a soft bristle brush to see if I could find a logo on the front of the wood plane.


I could only make out New York on the bottom so I took several pictures and put them on a larger monitor so I could enlarge them and have good resolution. They had several different ones but looking through them I found what I am pretty sure is the one that is located on the front of the plane I have. So with just a little more cleaning the BALDWIN and NEW YORK shows up but I couldn’t make out what was on the left side until I foundA thisA web site. Henry also provided a box top to jog my memory and help me recall the a€?pa€? word for the excellent Italian sweet treat. Henry delivered a note that Caroline Putnam sent to thank us for our contribution to the food pantry charity event that she chairs.
Although not wood workers, we can appreciate the artistry that goes into the creation of your bowls and the time it takes to create such beautiful objects.
His fathera€™s health has be deteriorating since last fall and on Saturday, he succumbed to his illnesses.
Do to Jimmya€™s gentle nature and the fact that loud noises give him a headache; it appears that he is employing only a small quantity of explosives. Fred Myers has been teaching Terri Johnson carving skills to augment her other woodworking interests. The internal lip at the top of the bowl prevents the ball from escaping as the bowl is swirled around a€“ hoola hoop fashion. A We endured the interruption of our journey into spring by ignoring the spate of nasty weather and enjoying the warm and relaxing ambiance of the lodge. A This week the show and tell items were distinguished by the variety of woods used in their construction.
However, in a concerted effort, Gene and Ron demonstrated that some projects cana€™t use all of them on one glue-up. A I doubt that Tom Sawyera€™s methods will entice the codgers to participate in the painting of the chair. Frank has a follow-up story on the charity event that benefits local food pantries and the codgersa€™ participation.
The cubs have a program similar to the merit badge curriculum of the older boys in Scouting. Through experience, we codgers have developed a level of situational awareness that prepares us to ascertain what is required and to establish our priorities without supervision.
While the flowing curves are somewhat reminiscent of Henrya€™s style, his presentations are considerably more refined and creative. In his spare time Bill is also a master woodworker in his own right, and contributor to Woodcraft Magazine. If you are inclined to associate with old folks who have a propensity for woodworking; this is a good place to spend some time.
Our meetings are informal and governed by the Golden Rule rather than Roberta€™s Rules of Order. He developed the skills quickly and we were progressing to more complex projects when, during one fateful session, Mikey asked about the mini-lathe in the shop. We invited two accomplished turners, Jimmy and Tom, to join our Tuesday sessions in the shop. Mikeya€™s turning skills increased and he acquired a more powerful lathe with a larger capacity to facilitate his progression toward larger bowls and segmented pieces. Realizing that most of us are fortunate to be retired and may be considered codgers, we began referring to the shop as Codger Lodge and our gathering as Turning Tuesday. A Pick your favorite wood in any choice of size, about 1″ thick or more, depending upon what you want your finished thickness to be.
To my surprise as I removed the many layers of dirt and rust from the cutter, I noticed some lettering beginning to show. I was able to make out a BA at the top and IN near the New York, so I started looking for information on the Baldwins to see what kind of stamps they might have used on their planes. A There you will find many talented woodworking Veterans, and how they help their cause through The Wounded Warrior and Home for Our Troops initiatives. Ron Thompson volunteered to host the event at his house in Sherman (a suburb of Ravenswood). After setting the ball in motion, the bowl is held steady while the ball precesses as it slows, similar to the ball in a roulette wheel.
Henry supplied same loaf at Christmas time and told me the name of this creation many times.
Franka€™s Woodworking Adventures Blog keeps us up to date on woodworking related events and Woodcrafta€™s involvement, as well as the events at Codger Lodge. He has done much for his surrounding communities, charities, and for many area woodworkers.
We codgers gather at a shop in Lubeck, WV each Tuesday to pursue our woodworking interests and related activities.


A He has a moderate 2-car shop garage and creates furniture, boxes, chess boards, wooden jewelry, turning items, and vintage radio restoration, some with upcycles to MP3 Players. A Woodcraft carries General Finishes Polyacrylic water-based top coats in flat, satin, semi-gloss and gloss applications.
I started getting a little excited as it is then you can at least research your finding and see where it might have traveled from and to. A According to a web site I found on Tool Makers of Middletown, Connecticut, The Starr company made Plane Irons only from 1846 – 1848. Enos trained both of his sons, Austin and Eldridge Gerry to work in the business learning the trade of tool making. Even the famed doughnut disposal team suffered a lackluster performance and left their mission half accomplished.
John Smith had a nice oak and walnut segmented bowl and Mikey built a fine segmented birdhouse from cedar and walnut scraps.
A number of people said that they came because of the wooden bowls, since they already had a collection of ceramic bowls.
His suicide bombing would be limited to blowing up an elevator while he was the lone occupant. Mikey gave the boys insight into the challenges of being handicapped and how he deals with those challenges. Codger Lodge sports a renowned doughnut disposal team and we are diligent in maintaining our proficiency. We mounted the lathe at his comfortable working level and I taught him everything that I know about turning.
Over a period of two years Turning Tuesday evolved into a social gathering as well as a woodworking skill share.
All I knew at the time was this was just an old wooden plane, but looked good enough I thought I could put it on a shelf in my office for conversation. I anticipate that this spate of spring fever will be short-lived and the codgers will soon regain their eager demeanor.
The boys had many questions for Mikey and gained a new perspective on how to interact with and assist folks who are wheelchair bound.
A Above, Bill holds a Bubinga board from Woodcraft, that he helped this blogger through his patience andA guidance of teaching safety in use of power and hand tools, to turn the board into this beautiful recipe box for my daughter.
Our treasury consists of two recycled plastic CD containers where voluntary contributions are made to the kitchen fund and the shop-supplies fund. The pattern routed hand-mirror project that we were working on before he was attracted to the mini-lathe is still stored in the shop, waiting to be completed. The top lever is the typical lateral adjustment while the bottom lever sets the iron extension or depth of cut. Routinely, the codgers indulge in many forms of woodworking, with turning being the most prevalent discipline. We are in the early planning stage at this point and other options for a desirable location may develop. When Turning Tuesday winds down and the power tools are unplugged, some of us enjoy a glass of beer while reflecting on the simple pleasures of the day shared with good friends at Codger Lodge.It all began with Mikey, who suffered a fall that left him paralyzed from his chest down and drastically altered his active lifestyle. We will discuss the picnic issues and make plans as we meet on Turning Tuesdays and ease into summer.
They are also likely responsible for training many of the other NYC makers know to be in the tool making business.
My own conclusion is that this plane is definitely per Civil War and not really sure how it made it from the far North East to North Alabama. After Mike recovered and adjusted his lifestyle to fit his circumstances, he disclosed a desire to learn basic woodworking skills. I plan on doing a little more research on who owned the building we were clearing and what connections they might have had.
A number of commemorative swords for national heroes were also produced including one for Andrew Jackson.
The Iron looks to have been abused a bit with someone not knowing how to adjust the blade and beating on it with a hammer pretty hard to roll the edge like it is.
A Instead of just a piece on a shelf, now I have something I know some of the history about and the neat thing is it didn’t cost me a dime.
