Segmented Bowl - 1st try

04-26-2009 02:33 AM by Woodhacker | 15 comments »

Until recently my lathe experience has been 50 or so pen/pencils, a few miniature goblets, and a couple small 5 inch bowls over the past few years on a Jet mini lathe, enough to want to try other lathe work. This past fall I was fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire a PM 3520B, but due to other work and priorities I’ve not had a lot of time to use it yet…and that’s “killing me”. So this blog documents what I consider my first significant lathe project. Recently a partially segmen...

Furniture School #3: The first class.

04-25-2009 04:04 PM by TraumaJacques | 5 comments »

Well… last Wednesday night was my first class. I was not sure what to expect since I was in high school the last time I was formally instructed in woodworking. The course is being held at the Living Arts Center here in Mississauga, Ontario. We are 10 students with a wide variety of experience and different background. A great bunch of people and the atmosphere was relaxed. I had already decided to leave my past knowledge in my shop and walk in with an open mind. It is a good thing because the...

The Shop #1: Space

04-25-2009 08:55 AM by amat55 | 13 comments »

Well there have been times when the man of the house needs to have some space of his own, Could this space be the den or maybe some unused corner some where in the house I think not its the garage for you. The garage now has a new name its “the shop” out with the garden tool out with the bag of old cloths, the shop has a new purpose to build a shed for those garden tools and maybe make it big enough for that bag of old cloths. Yes that what the shop does it hold our beloved toys ...

garret /hidden storage space #1: I found it!

04-25-2009 07:30 AM by Junji | 11 comments »

Hi, This is not actually “project”, maybe, so I just writing it in here.My house, as a typical size of Japanese house” is small, some of you may be really surprised how small this is if you actually see it! Ever since we moved to this house, I had been wondering how it is like the space between the 2nd floor ceiling and the roof. “There must be some space, there must be space” I had been saying it to myself, but just didn’t have time to check it. If this...

Safety First.

Everyone always thinks they are being safe but it only takes one time to change your life, possibly forever. Most people, (including me) thinks that it will never happen to them. I work at a surgery center as a scrub tech and when it starts to get warmer we always start to see more injuries. In the past two weeks we’ve fixed two guys with large wounds to their hands from table saws. One guy cut two tendons and the other cut a main nerve and artery at the wrist. Seeing these injur...

Murphy Bed #11: Sanded and Stained Outer Case Parts

04-24-2009 09:35 PM by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Well this morning I got out to the shop and sanded all of the outer case sides, headboard, and header. Then after sweeping the shop real good and then running the shop vac I let the air cleaner run for about an hour. I then cleaned off all the parts once again and got out the stain and put a coat of stain on everything. All that’s left to do now is let it dry and I will be ready to start something new for me and that is spraying lacquer. I have several test pieces as...
