With the blade hardened it is time to make a proper handle. In a previous blog I stabilized a fine piece of spalted apple. That is what I am going to use to make the handle.Chuck it up in the lathe and cut a section of copper tubing for the ferrule.I begin by making the blank round and cutting down on one end for the ferrule.Here I have it fit.Mix up some epoxy and spread it on the ferrule stub and in place the ring on the finger.After the epoxy cures I mount the blank into my scroll chuck ...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Then with a dremel and a small file I squared out the hole. I used a sharpie to color the area that I was working on just so I could see it a bit better. I had to thin out the bit as it was too wid...

Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel #4: David Marks, Michael Cooper, Peter Brown, Ray Mowder, & Zac Higgins!!!

01-19-2016 06:22 AM by CharlieK | 2 comments »

This is really turning out to be the trip of a lifetime! I interviewed Zac Higgins in Carson City and Ray Mowder in Sacramento. Both of them are great guys and I had a lot of fun meeting with them! Then I drove further into northern California and interviewed the great sculptor Michael Cooper! It so happens that David Marks lives just a few miles from Michael and I got to spent an entire day with him! Then, the icing on the cake was that Peter Brown also lives in the area and I g...
