Danish Oil

05-22-2012 12:03 AM by thecarpentershands | 4 comments »

So, a fellow carpenter just told me about danish oil so naturally, i picked some up. I just put it on a cherry and ash box which I will be finishing soon and WOW! I was blown away by the enhancement of the oil. I have mainly been using linseed oil, shellac and polyurethane lately but I really think danish oil is going to open pandora’s box of finishes. Again, I’ll say WOW! God bless.

Water leak in heater: 1, lathe bed: 0

06-07-2012 10:57 PM by Ryan Haasen | 3 comments »

Quite the little coincidence occurred today. My wood-shop teacher lent me some lubricant protector for my cast-iron table tops on my tools because I told him they were unprotected, he’s a great guy. So, when I get home from school and go to the shop to apply it, what do I see? The last foot of my lathe bed full of rust from a leak in the heater above it. Lets just say I was not very happy. I am guessing some of it was just rust drops from the ceiling, as there is a now a stain on the co...

CNC tooling

06-24-2012 12:31 AM by tyskkvinna | 15 comments »

I had a few people ask to see the tooling that I use for turning wood on a CNC (metal) lathe. So here you go. So this is what something looks like when it is in the lathe. I have this piece mounted to a flange, but it could also be in a turning centre or on a mandrel. This is my standard tool profile. In the first picture I am using the same idea but the full diametre. Good for hogging. This one is better for more precision things. These are my little carbide tips. Sharp ...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #1: Table top underway

09-24-2012 01:34 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 13 comments »

I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...

Sharpened the blades.

10-11-2012 02:27 AM by jumbojack | 3 comments »

My local Woodcraft offers a blade sharpening service. They job it out; a guy comes by every Wednesday and brings back sharp blades the following Wednesday. I had no idea how bad my blades were. They came back with plastic coating across the newly sharpened toofs. I pitched it on the ole Shopsmith and ran a piece of mahogany from the scrap bin through. Seriously, it was like a hot knife through butter. I was amazed at the cut quality. The saw made a completely different sound. Looking back the...
