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...

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...
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.
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...
