I had made a bowl for my son-in-law for Christmas, but unfortunately I had used a fresh cut piece of wood and it split while in the gift box before he even got to unwrap it. . If interested, you can see THAT fiasco here … http://lumberjocks.com/projects/112121..I still had the other half of the branch I used and I waited a few months to let it dry out. So a few days ago I turned a replacement to send him. ..I made a maple base for it and turned the new bowl. Here’s how the rep...
Hello all! Let me begin by saying that this is not an original idea, many have done this before…this is just my attempt of it that I have been tossing around in my head for quite a long time now… I’ve researched online, and I was looking for a way to do this without a forge involved…my friend has one, but I believe that I can shape the knives without losing the temper if I’m careful not to let the metal get too hot. I started with some vintage files/rasps ...

I’m to the point in my project where I need to mount some bearings, so I picked-up some skateboard bearings off of Amazon that had a good rating at that weren’t going to break the bank. I only need four, but they were sold in sets of eight, so I guess I have back-ups. The ID on them is 8mm, and after a little research I determined that what I needed was a couple 8mm X 100mm steel dowels. I dropped by our local Fastenal store and though they didn’t have them on hand they w...
Back before Christmas I built this simple beer tote to present some beers, which I had bought my Dad as a gift. As this was a gift I designed it to tightly house the bottles (the handle acts to hold them in place) but this could easily be adapted for day-to-day use. Check out the video below!

Catastrophe !!! . The question is always not “IF” it will happen, but “WHEN” it will happen. Well it finally happened to me..I started out with a maple and cedar sandwich....Cut out an 11” circle and spent 4 hours turning and sanding what WOULD have been a beautiful 2.5” deep bowl. .. .. I had just put on the 2nd coat of Tung oil and had picked it up to move it from my bench and I FUMBLED IT ! As it slipped from my hands I almost caught it, but...
I wrote about making end grain cutting boards in these two posts on the Craftsy woodworking blog: http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2015/02/how-to-make-an-end-grain-cutting-board/ http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2015/03/maple-end-grain-cutting-board/
Seeing the model again and again I started to lay out the Gothic Cathederal Arches but first I wanted to have knowledge of the how the old craftsman layed out the arches. I researched on Utube the many different ways how two concentric circles line up to form a cathedral arch. It was agonizing because the Altar is basically a rectangle and all the demonstrations were of squares. My lay outs didn’t coincide . I became prematurely grey, I walked away many times for air. Cussing helped. ...

I’m excited to say that I am now the proud owner of a Woodpeckers PRL-V2 Precision Lift! I’m getting ready to build “The Ultimate Router Table” by Dan Phalen and looking to post the whole process via YouTube! Has anyone here built this table? Any pro’s or con’s- perhaps upgrades or customizations you wish you would have built or…? I’m really excited as I’ve been using my current table- an Oak Park style table- for almost 6 years. Its been ...
