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 a mallet on the lathe with some laminated oak and cherry. YouTube link. SUBSCRIBE! NEW VIDEOS ON TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS
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

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 ...
Alright, fellas, my first ever turning project, and my first project on LJ’s! After telling my boss that I just got a new toy to play with (Harbor Freight 8” by 12” mini-lathe), he asked what I’d want to turn him some tap handles for his DIY Kegerator. Before I could answer, he offered me 5 gallons of his dark IPA home brew. Sold! His stuff always at least places in the competitions he enters, and all I really wanted was some practice turning, so seems like a win...
