First Turning Project: Tap Handles #1: Prototype

06-25-2016 05:18 PM by Dustin | 2 comments »

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...

Past and Present Projects #1: Picture slide show

06-19-2016 10:29 PM by WoodCrafts67 | 2 comments »

Here is a video of my past and present projects. I thought it would be a lot easier to do it this way to show you some of my work. All projects from wood I have used either pallets or recycled wood from old furniture and off cuts I had laying around in the workshop. I really like to make and build many things as you can see. I hope you like what you see. I really enjoyed building everyone of these projects. I am currently working on a Homemade Bandsaw a drill press and a routing machine...

Paduak & Maple vase #4: Finally finished

06-19-2016 03:11 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

I applied several coasts of clear shellac and then wet sanded and applied automotive polish and auto wax. It was very difficult to keep the paduak saw dust from bleeding onto the maple even after sealing the maple.

I received a new Rikon Grinder but it has runs in the paint, time to repaint

06-18-2016 02:21 AM by MikesProjects | 0 comments »

Super excited to get back at woodturning again after almost 20 years, yes since I was a teenager. Back than I did a lot of woodturning in my fathers shop. I used to make money with my turnings back then selling them locally & work of mouth. I also used to sell wooden pipes to the local smokers. I specialized in 18” long piece pipes & back then $25 was a lot to me, still is, haha. So Far I have purchased a used wood lathe, a g1495 which they discontinued the month I got mine l...

Paduak & Maple vase #3: Finished Turning

06-16-2016 02:58 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

Haven’t worked on this project for over a week. Finished turning and now I need to seal the woodbefore I sand. The paduak sanding dust will “bleed” onto the maple if not sealed properly.

Paduak & Maple vase #2: Started turning

06-07-2016 02:22 AM by Julian | 0 comments »

Started turning the vase (or bowl) today. This was an experiment using complementary segments in the rings. The effect did not turn out very dramatic. I like the rich color of the paduak.

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #2: Fitting the Driven Pulley and Fabbing Support for Motor and Swivel Bar

06-06-2016 07:15 PM by Pete_LJ | 1 comment »

06062016 I got the rough version of the box built and attached to the back of the lathe. In addition, I decided to go with the first alternative on mounting the driven pulley (namely, Maska Pulley Hub with three fasteners to be attached through holes that need to be drilled accurately in pulley). I created two wooden plugs using two hole saws: i.) 1 7/8”, and ii.) 1 1/8”. Neither hole saw created the perfect size plug. So I wrapped electrical tape around the 1 7/8” plug (actually 1.579” fo...

Paduak & Maple vase #1: Preparing the rings

06-05-2016 01:01 AM by Julian | 1 comment »

I tried a new design element on the wedgie sled. I made “complementary” angles out of maple. This gives an unique look with the maple pieces having wide and narrow ends alternating as shown. I only did this for the first 3 rings. The remainder just have 1/4” thick maple pieces. I added black veneer for added contrast.
