Make a Bowl Gouge #2: Turning a Handle and Testing

02-18-2017 03:50 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Working further on the bowl gouge I turn a handle in this video and give it a testing. I still need to make a good sharpening jig for it, but I hand sharpen it this time. Check out the video and subscribe for more woodworking videos.

After sanding to 220 grit I applied a coat of clear shellac as a sealer.I’m hoping the cherry will darken more to give the piece better contrast.

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #5: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #5: Finishing Rough Wiring and Doing Test Cut

02-07-2017 02:14 PM by Pete_LJ | 3 comments »

02072017 I finished the rough wiring this morning. I still need to mount the potentiometer (which controls speeds), mount wires to motor more securely, put faceplate on switch/receptacle, and get wiring for light better secured . I ordered from ebay a plastic enclosure for the MC-40 motor controller (namely, the grey box in the pictures). The output from the MC-40 controller runs to the drum switch (the green switch in the pics) which controls direction of rotation. IN turn the wires f...

Thin rings bowl with black veneer. #1: 14 thin rings glued & turned.

02-06-2017 04:25 PM by Julian | 2 comments »

This will be a covered bowl. I first made the bowl and then will make the cover to ensure it fits.This bowl has two different types of rings; one type of ring is from alder and walnut & the second type of ring is from cherry and maple. The smaller pieces from maple and walnut are wider in the rings as they approach the center but the effect did not turn out that obvious. There is a layer of black veneer between each ring.Here are some photos from glued rings to finished turning (before...

Make a Bowl Gouge #1: Forming and Heat Treating

01-29-2017 08:35 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I have decided to see if I could make a bowl gouge for a very cheap price instead of buying one. So far it is going well with forming the main portion and then heat treating the metal. Subscribe for more woodworking videos.

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Getting Pullies running True and Accurate

01-16-2017 08:56 PM by Pete_LJ | 1 comment »

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you on this project. Honestly, we had a renovation on the house going on which required all my attention. Let me recap a little regarding where I was back at my last entry, hurdles, solutions and new issues. In my last entry, I had lined up the belt and pulleys by eye. Additionally, I had a custom keyway made by the local machinist whereby the 46-715’s 3mm key slot was able to mate to the keyway 5/16” (equivalent to 8mm) slot of the M...

Shop storage projects #5: Dungeon Shop Remodel, Stage 3, and....

01-08-2017 10:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

A bit of woodworking, too. Was at a standstill on moving things around, decided to at least start on the chest of drawers build. I had an old pine 4×4 in the shop. Decided I could resaw it down for a few parts. Trying to get a few 4/4 by 2” wide blanks made up. Once those were resawn, I had to plane them smooth and square, well, at least ONE was done. I also set up a fancy plane, to do a bit of molding work on the now squared up blank… A Stanley No.45, with tha...

Make a Lathe Tool Rack

01-03-2017 11:32 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Instead of leaving my lathe tools laying around and always getting in the way, I created a rack to hold them with a few additional spaces for future expansion. I was able to use scrap lumber and fill in a void area in my shop. Take a look at the project, leave comments, and subscribe.
