Who knew that pine might look nice as a bowl/dish/whatever? First I glued up 2 pieces of 1”X12” shelving boards. I used a glue-block for mounting and had a couple issues when I took the mounting block off the back, had to use a bit ...

Update, 06/30/2013, Well, we have made the move to GA. Moved here so my wife could take care of her 88yo father. It was just too stressful trying to do it from 12 hours away. We have moved into his house with just over an acre of land. There's a 100+ year-old oak in the front yard and we have 3 pecan trees that are between 50 and 100 years old that put out a TON of pecans each year. Has a huge back yard that will be perfect for putting up a new shop building. Been here almost a month and have started looking for full-time employment. Nothing yet, but hopefully soon. Biggest issue for us now is our house back in 10aSEE is on the market, and if it doesn't sell soon it's gonna drain our savings.
I've been interested in working with wood since I was just a pup. But it wasnt till the past few years that I was able to actually able to set up a REAL shop and start building things. I usually tell people I consider myself to be a "WoodButcher" 'cause I can turn 100bucks worth of oak and maple into sawdust with the best of 'em :-)
The project I'm most proud of is the new dining room table I built for my wife last year. I was given some 100+ year-old barn wood (oak) and I used maple between the boards for a stripe effect. Hand rubbed it with about 15 coats of Tung oil and (I think) it came out pretty nice.

I’ve been using the “standard” tool rest that came with the lathe, it’s that basic piece of cast “pot metal”. I actually have several sizes but they’re all made of the same cheap crap. ...I’ve been ...
I broke one of my home made lathe handles a few weeks ago. You can see that here. http://lumberjocks.com/JoeinGa/blog/64890. .I finally got around to making a replacement. I used the bandsaw and my 12” disc sander to get the broken piec...
This is the biggest bowl (size-wise) that I’ve made yet to date. It’s just over 5” deep but it’s just a bit more than 1” wider than that other “bean pot” I turned. This one is layered (top to bottom) with ...
So I’m turning my latest bowl. It’ll be the biggest one yet that I’ve done. Everything is going along fairly well and I can only guess ( in hindsight ) that I must have shifted my weight and leaned in a bit too much, because all...
