Rope Carvings

03-24-2015 06:09 PM by Luke Addington | 2 comments »

I prepared some rope samples a few weeks ago for a client meeting. Here’s the process I used: Layout Part I. Video for Part I of the layout process. I mark the centers of the square portions at either end of the turning. I line my ruler up with the two points and bend it down slightly so it touches the column. Then I mark a short center line on the column itself. I do that on all four sides. Then I take some painters tape and line up the centers the same way I did with the ruler, ...

#18 Challenge Tree Entries

03-16-2015 11:53 PM by Serradura | 0 comments »

Semi-interactive video. You can chose between my entry for the Challenge Tree and the one my twin-brother made. The Challenge Tree is an initiative of Dominic Bender at “Dominic Woodworks!”: http://www.dominicswoodworks.com/en/ After a few minutes you can click on “channel 1” for Gerrit’s “Woodworker’s meditation altar” or on “channel 2” for his twin-brother’s “Mallet for, and made on a pole lathe”.

Rare markings

03-11-2015 01:13 AM by Boatdude | 5 comments »

These are a couple of the bowls I have made from a Black Gum Log. To me I think it turns great. I was told the tree had been down for 2 years but I have my doubts it was pretty wet still and the bowls warped after turning. This is my first post to lumberjocks so I would like to say HELLO !

A Shaker Table Project, part #1....Legs

03-05-2015 04:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, went out to Lowes today, and spent just over a $20 bill. Brought home five boards. Going to try to build a Shaker Table, hopefully with a drawer in it. The wood supply? A 2×4x8’ two 1×6x8’, and a couple 1×8 x~ 3’ I do have some scraps of pine down in the Dungeon Shop, too. Figured out I needed four legs @ 1-1/2×1-1/2×30”, and took the 2×4 down the steps to the Dungeon… Placed to board across both benches. and ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #6: Flattening and starting on the tail vise

03-05-2015 04:02 AM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

Last night I snuck out to the shop to take the clamps from the front top that I glued up earlier that day and used them to glue up two of the legs. I just had to get it done before bed. This morning I just let them sit as I had other stuff to do. I started with flattening the bottom surface of the front top. I had to run it across the jointer in halves like I did with the back top and I thought I did ok but I realized that after running the top surface through the planer, that surface was...

From Rust to (Saw) Dust: A Journey #1: Introduction

02-24-2015 11:17 PM by gleasoncraftworks | 3 comments »

Hello all! This is my first post to LumberJocks, and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey into the world of woodworking with you all, as well as learning everything I can from the old (sorry, EXPERIENCED!) hands out there. I’m an Information Technology consultant by profession, but I’ve also been a rough carpenter/handyman for a few years now on the side. I’ve done a few finer things in that time—I’m particularly proud of a set of built-ins ...

Another 52 Weeks #8: Getting a lot done but not finishing anything

02-23-2015 02:30 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

I got 32 pen blanks cut, drilled and tubes glued into them.. The...

Park Model Deck #1: Unconventional Park Model Deck

02-23-2015 01:54 AM by Jim Jakosh | 14 comments »

This year the project for our park model was a new deck. This grouping of photos show how I built it- but not the conventional way. I designed it to have drawers below for storage and wanted the railing on the outside of the deck the carpet could be easily changed in the future. Here is what we started with: I used my laser mount (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/109042) to set the level line to start: And then I built small rectangles with 2×4”s and connected top and bott...

Tools have a mind of their own. #1: Now, Boys! No need for jealousy.

02-18-2015 04:11 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 5 comments »

I have owned a Delta Midi Lathe for several years… I mean maybe decades. Turned lots of pens, table legs, peppermills, chair rungs, and such. We’ve had our fun times and we’ve had our little spats, of course. Not going to mention that piece of maple you threw at me in ‘99. I’ve had very little trouble from this lathe. I did have to replace the tail stock thrust handle but that was my fault. Heavy-handed that day. Now, and only now this midi lathe has starting ...

Made a trip to Grizzly

02-16-2015 01:00 AM by CyF | 9 comments »

So I went down to Springfield MO on Feb 14th to the Grizzly Showroom. Managed not to spend all of my money but sure put a dent in the bank account, but I think it worth it.The man reason for heading there was to pick up m new lathe, I didn’t want to wait for the new G0766 since it has now been pushed out to May 26th. So I purchased the G0733. I gotta say I’m impressed with it overall so far but haven’t done a lot with it yet. Give me a couple weeks and I will post a review o...
