Lidded Boxes #1: Lidded Box Practice

10-16-2016 09:22 PM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

I have made Christmas gifts in my woodshop the past two years. This year I intend to turn gifts on my small lathe which itself was a gift from my neighbor James Warner. His wife Susan told me that he would have wanted me to have it. So I will be turning small bowls and small lidded boxes this year. What you see here is my practice piece turning a lidded box. I am using a scrap block of Douglas Fir. This piece is large enough so I can make and fit a tenon into my four jaw chuck. Can ...

Making a fireplace bellows

09-28-2016 11:09 AM by Jim Finn | 1 comment »

Instructions for making functioning and decorative fireplace bellows: Feb. 9, 2004 (Up-dated Sept. 2016) I have made well over sixty of these. I developed this process and pattern from a carved bellows I bought in Norway in 1984. The decorative inlay process is explained in another blog of mine. Wood can be any kind that you like to use. Needed is about 30 inches of 1×8. One half-inch thick wood will also work if you can find it. I have used Oak, Cedar, Pine, Waln...

Boy and Girls, This blog is to supplement a project I penned earlier, regarding Lathe disk sander with micro adjustment. Please click on the link to read about the micro adjustment feature of the brains behind the underlying mechanism. Just a quick memory twister…. This table was designed using Sketchup and here is a link to it for anyone interested. Again I have not provided measurement as everything depends on the person undertaking the build and their respective timber and hardw...

Making an Aluminum, LDPE, and Oak Mallet

09-12-2016 03:26 AM by beahan | 1 comment »

This mallet was fun to build! It was 3 completely different processes to make each part of it. This was also my first time working with plastic (LDPE) as a medium. I have absolutely no practical use for this thing… I just thought about it one day and it sounded like fun to make! View on YouTube

Lathe work #1: Woodturning for the True Beginner

09-03-2016 05:47 PM by Bdobs13 | 4 comments »

For anyone looking to get into woodturning, you should. It is an awesome feeling to turn the simplest of things. My first object was just a cylinder with little grooves but the feeling was great. I have had a used Jet 1236 lathe that I just looked at for about a year and always too afraid of using it and getting way too caught up in getting the tools sharp although I only attempted sharpening them once with epic failure results. I did countless hours of research on woodturning for beginners ...
