I recently discovered the Lumberjocks Forum and signed up but then spent the last couple of weeks going through all the previous entries to see just what the forum was all about… Wow! There is a considerable amount of talent floating around this place and a whole lot of good (free) information being shared. I hope that I can give back as much as I expect to be getting from all of you!Last summer I was attending a local Farmer’s Market, selling my wood products and making new frien...

First attempt at making a carbide tipped lathe tool

08-11-2015 05:08 PM by casecx700 | 2 comments »

This is my first attempt at making a carbide tipped lathe tool, the handle is made of oak and ash cut and glued at a 45 degree angle and doweled for added strength. The metal part that holds the cutter is made of a piece of .5 inch round rod that I purchased from home depot and tapped a #8 32TPI thread into to accommodate the easy wood tool cutter. Currently I am waiting on the epoxy to set up so I can finish it up tomorrow hopefully. I am planning on finishing with Boiled linseed oil.

File Chisel Build #1: Part 1: The shaping and grinding

06-20-2015 08:03 PM by Sanderguy777 | 0 comments »

This is my first try at this blog thing so any advice is welcome. I’m sorry for the lack of pics but I thought of posting this after I cut the file. Anyway, I needed a wide chisel and I had a file that was oversized so I chopped it up and started grinding away…. This is the part that I will use on this project. After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...

Celtic clock transformation #1: Celtic clock transformation #1:

12-31-2014 11:31 PM by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 4 comments »

Started this project over a year ago. The wood is Ancient kauri, I bought it for it’s neat history knowing nothing of it’s carving characteristics. It was going to be a clock, but during the final part of cutting in the celtic design the side of the block cracked. I was going to toss it, but s friend said to hold on to it and look at it again later. Now it’s later and I have an idea, it’s weird I promise. During this process, the fragility of the wood al...
