My lathe journeys. #25: ...Christmas bowl that split, here's the replacement.

03-20-2015 11:26 PM by JoeinGa | 3 comments »

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 … 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...

File to knife... #1: Starting the process

03-20-2015 10:49 PM by MadJester | 14 comments »

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 ...

Scott and Jay's "Shop Time Throwdown" #6: Time to install some bearings, then suddenly... CRAP!

03-20-2015 08:39 PM by MrToolHunter | 0 comments »

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...

Slightly Rustic Beer Gift Set- Beer Caddy, Tote, etc.

03-20-2015 07:07 PM by AlexHarris | 2 comments »

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!

My lathe journeys. #24: ... Crime scene pix, not for the squemish!

03-20-2015 04:27 PM by JoeinGa | 10 comments »

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...

New Altar #2: Altar Lay out

03-20-2015 01:27 PM by Arthouse | 1 comment »

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!

Its been ...
