Turning slippery slope #4: My first turning class projects

02-01-2009 12:27 AM by Betsy | 6 comments »

Well I can certainly see why turning is so addictive. I had my first techniques class today. We did a little spindle work and some hollowing. I got to use a lot of different tools to get a feel of them. Skews, gouges, scraper, multi-purpose tools, parting tools, etc. Had a terrific time. Learned a lot. Mostly that I have no idea what I’m doing – but I know I’m going to get better. We used soft woods today, ash and popular. They turn very easily so they make good woods to ...

Bill, our company Sawyer, is constantly in the shop working hard on custom milling for people in the area. I’m begging him at this point for pictures of things he has done so I can put them up. No such luck as of yet, but I’m not giving up. I wanted to write about how thrilled I am to have discovered this site. By reading and looking through all of your creative work and comments, I’ve been learning so much about wood working and turning. Truly, every project I have seen ...

Office #4: Dimensional Furniture #3

04-12-2009 09:11 PM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I know it has been almost a month but it has been a busy one.. with a little time here and there I was able to finish the base desk. I put the last coat of poly on it last night and was able to move it in to the office this afternoon and get that temporary desk moved out of the way. I will be taking it apart and recycling it into new furniture for DW new sewing room. The new desk fit in place great and I am now working on figuring out the next step which will more then likely be my...

Redwood - what to do?? #3: 1st Design in Sketchup for the Redwood Burl End Table

07-19-2009 07:42 AM by brukilla | 8 comments »

I got through designing my redwood burl tabletop end table. The sketchuo file is located here. I would like to hear some criticism on this, even though it is my first piece of furniture. I would also like to know if I have the inlay pieces set up correctly. I thought about mitered, but I thought it would look more distinct with darker end gran at the corners. I wouod also like to know if my approximations for the mortise & tenon joints are ok. Let me know… I also created ssome...

Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #1: Lumberjocks - will I fit in?

09-28-2009 12:46 AM by Jim Bertelson | 13 comments »

Well, thanks for the great welcome. Found this forum searching for solutions to some issues as I started upgrading the shop, and thought it would be a good source of information and camaraderie. I checked out some of the threads, such as “You know you’re LumberJock if/when…”. That made me wonder…would I fit in. Am I … er, ah …. crazy enough, you know…obsessed? Then realizing that yesterday I dumped a whole quart ($15) of Watco into the bottomless pit of MDF that is my new radial arm tab...
