Good turning jacket

Good turning jacket

598 days ago by Kreegan | 3 comments »

After the first time I turned green wood, I decided that I needed some kind of turner’s smock or coat. So I looked around at the available options, and didn’t really like what was out there. Everything was either too pricey or looked like it didn’t provide the kind of coverage I wanted. On a turner’s forum somewhere, I read that some people recommended chef’s jackets or welding coats. I looked at chef’s coats and didn’t find any with the kind of neck ...

This afternoon I finished watching “Sharpening your handsaws with Ron Herman” on Shop Class on Demand from Popular Woodworking. It’s an online streaming version of the DVD of the same name. I enjoyed it so much and feel like I learned so much from it that I’m going to order a copy of the DVD to keep when my subscription runs out. Ron Herman is a traditional housewright in Columbus, OH, and the owner of Antiquity Builders. They specialize in period accurate home buil...

Excellent grinder accessory

I got a cheapo 6” bench grinder from Harbor Freight at the same time that I bought my lathe to sharpen my turning tools. It ran just fine with the 2 wheels it came with, but vibrated all over the table with the Norton aluminum oxide wheel that I ordered from Lee Valley. I spent a lot of time messing with the adapter bushings that it came with, trying to get the wheel to run true, but with no luck. Enter the Oneway Balancing System, also purchased from Lee Valley. At first I didn̵...

I just recently purchased a lathe and have been looking at videos and tutorials online about turning. I went to the library closest my office to see if they had any good turning books and found a DVD instead. The DVD is put out by Taunton for Fine Woodwoorking and is called “The New Turning Wood with Richard Raffan.” http://www.amazon.com/New-Turning-Wood-Richard-Raffan/dp/1561589578/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1350571992&sr=1-1&keywords=turning+wood T...

Very handy workbench accessory

I purchased the Veritas Planing Stop from Lee Valley (http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=69837&cat=1,41637) about a month ago. I’d had a planing stop I made myself, but I managed to crack it, so I decided to give this one a try. The stop is about 10 in wide and a little over 1 in deep. It has 2 metal posts that fit into standard 3/4 in dog holes on your workbench. The posts slide along the bottom of the stop in a T track. I have dog holes in 2 patterns on my bench: para...
