My first attempt on a video, il try some more later. My father have been woodturning since he had to stand on a Box to reatch up to the lathe, vile his Brothers pedaled it.

I met Rob Cosman! My first trip to Woodcraft.

10-14-2015 12:11 AM by Chris McDowell | 8 comments »

I went to Woodcraft for the first time ever in order to get some tools so that I can start doing some turning on my new lathe. Couldn’t have picked a better day to go. The entire store was 15% off. Also, when I walked in I saw a group of people standing around a workbench near the entrance. I recognized the dude they were all talking to and realized that it was Rob Cosman, the great hand-tool woodworker from Canada. He’s on YouTube as well. Check him out. Watch the video her...

Plugging large holes

10-13-2015 01:18 PM by Nels | 12 comments »

I have used material that had bolts and washers in it. The holes are 1-3/4” and I need to plug these holes. Cutting the exsisting holes with a router or drill bit is easy. How can I cut a plug accurately that is 2-1/2” in diameter and 1/2” thick? I can make the hole smaller (maybe 2-3/8” or 2-1/4”), but I want to cut out the defects around where the bolt holes are. The material is oak and there are about 200 holes to plug. I guess I could turn the plugs,...

Recent Coring Activity

10-06-2015 07:09 PM by Ken Waller | 3 comments »

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last posted. I’ll ensure I contribute more often.Here are some pictures of the coring of a 20” half-log of red oak I was able to acquire. The end result was 5 rough-turned bowls that are now drying. The largest is 19 1/2” and the smallest is 7 1/2”. It took me one hour to rough-turn the outside of the blank and 1:45 to core the 5 bowls.

Shop stuff #4: Dealing with rust on iron

10-03-2015 05:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It’s that time of year again and it seems the question of how to deal with rust on the iron tops of machinery come up in all the forums about now. In response to this I make a quick video of how I deal with it. This is not the only way to do it, but it is inexpensive and works. I hope this is helpful, it is a pretty quick process.

In the first video of this series, I start by making the table legs. They are 3” walnut with a tapered peg at the bottom, and a small turned detail. Thanks to Matt Cremona for the help with the slabs to make them! As always, I welcome your questions and comments! You Tube Link –

Four-Poster Captain's Bed #2: How this got started...

09-16-2015 06:59 AM by RobII | 0 comments »

How this promise of a captain’s bed came about was almost an accident. My bride-to-be is used to having a large bed, California King, to be exact. All I had was a paltry queen-sized mattress on a relatively low frame. She commented that I probably stuck out over both ends when I slept (I’m 6’ 4”), and I had to agree with her. She also did not (understandably) want to share a bed with me that I had shared with my last (deceased) wife. So, I went and bought a Cal-Ki...
