Ornaments 2014 #1: Wood Choices

10-19-2014 08:01 PM by clieb91 | 0 comments »

The holiday season is almost upon us and for me that means along with the gifts I want to make I also need to make ornaments and other various stuff for this year’s light show. Unfortunately this year I am getting a late start but not making as many as last year. My wood stash from the park has been gone through and the here is what I will be using this year… Assorted woods include: Thunder Plum, Holly, Red Oak, Birch, Beech, and a few more I forget. Next step cut to bla...

Kids in the Shop! #10: Entrepreneurial Spirit

10-12-2014 03:20 PM by clieb91 | 6 comments »

I mentioned a few moths ago that my daughter got herself an order for 8 pens. She did a great job and the two clients loved them. We kind of dropped the ball on the farm stand thing but hope to pursue that again after the holidays. For the craft fair season this year my wife and I have two different weekends that have two smaller shows happening so we decided to split up. Since we can’t have the pens that I normally make at both locations my daughter has decided to help take up the slac...

Artemesia - Worlds Largest Craftsman Home

09-28-2014 08:04 PM by Jerry | 13 comments »

You will see some amazing joinery and craftsmanship in this slide show. Great for ideas… An ad man named Leonard Fenton has spent well over two decades now working on Artemesia, reputedly the largest Craftsman house ever built. And it is something. The 13,300-square-foot mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood was built a century ago by Frederick Engstrum, a construction tycoon who built downtown’s lovely Rosslyn Hotel, according to a story last year in Los Angeles Ma...

Craftsman/King Seeley 9x30 Lathe #6: Finally made a home + important trivia facts

09-21-2014 06:50 AM by Rick M. | 9 comments »

Been putting this off for bookoo long time.Gotta rip out this workbench to make a home for my lathe. Fun trivia: That paper tacked to the wall under the hammer is a plan I drew for a set of end tables I made in 1999, it’s been there since. Demo! Trivia: the plastic bag hanging askew left of the auger bits has been there about 16 years. It’s a clear mounting plate for a router table. I built a router table without using it. Hammerthumb, if you are watchi...

Totally NEW project....REVEILED!

09-11-2014 10:07 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

This project is what I call “THE PROPOSAL EGG” It’s a simple idea that, until last night I had never heard of anyone else ever making. It’s a SPINDLE TURNING project that involves making a hollowed out “EGG”, that becomes a “lidded box” (eventually the base part will have a small round “ring cushion” once my friend has made some or me, as round ring cushions just don’t seem to be available to buy in the UK) that a ring can be...

Chip in Dip Finished Up!

09-09-2014 02:37 PM by woodshopmike | 0 comments »

Y’all may have seen the ambrosia maple chip-n-dip I posted in the project section a few days ago. Check out the Chip-N-Dip Finished blog post to see how I went about the process. This is just a very coarse blog post, a more in depth write up will accompany the next chip-n-dip bowl I make. Hopefully I’ll get another one turned before the week is out, but don’t count on a post that soon :) Hope y’all enjoy, have a great day!

I complete the three legged stool. In this episode I glue up the seat and eventually the rest of the stool. I shape the legs, install the wedges in the mortise and tenons, sand and finish the stool. Thanks for the support and kind comments! This was a fun project and satisfying to have completed it. Best RegardsChris http://youtu.be/jhUJkumaA18

Unstable Lathe speed? Try this BEFORE spending on a new motor or control unit!!

09-05-2014 06:19 PM by TannerTurnings | 4 comments »

A quick bit of info for anyone using an AXMINSTER awvsl Lathe (or similar)Today, my Lathe suddenly started to speed up and slow down, somewhat similar to the old Bus engines of the 1950s era, making turning almost impossible. Also, as it would speed up, there was a flash coming from the motor brushes. I guess now that some people are thinking that either my Motor was faulty, or that my variable speed control unit had a fault, and would probably need replacing…right? The way to fix this ...
