Making of a Gavel

171 days ago by drbyte | 1 comment »

Thought I’d post here a little about making a ‘segmented’ or glued-up gavel. First few pix show the glue-up and clamping. (And people, (non-wodworkers-wives-co-workers), wonder why us lumberjocks always need more clamps!) Then turning the handle: And then turning the head of the gavel. I leave my handle tenon about 7/8 inch on large gavels. I drill the handle tenon (1/4”) and insert 2” piece of steel rod or carbon fiber to reinforce it at th...

Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #6: Y axis coming together...

180 days ago by DS | 13 comments »

Received the y axis THK rails yesterday—just in time for the weekend. I was able to mount them and begin assembling the y axis carriage.As soon as the rack and pinion arrives I’ll be able to make the motor mount box and start focusing on the z axis plate. The y axis rack and pinion gears are stuck in Chicago almost a week already. Not sure what the hold up is.The cable drag chains arrived today from the east coast with no issues. The chains themselves came as thre...

New begining in sharpening

189 days ago by deeman | 2 comments »

Sunday I went to Woodcraft and used my Christmas gift cards and purchased the Rikon low speed grinder and the Wolverine Jig with the Vari Grind attachment. I have been trying to turn on my Shopsmith for many years with the tools that came with it and using the books that came with it. I was never happy with the projects I made, well the pens I made turned out good and I have managed to sell quite a few. I was trying to sharpen my tools with the disc sander and a belt sander with poor result...

Chess pieces and board #3: Finishing Off Lathe

190 days ago by Luke | 0 comments »

I usually just finish the chess pieces one at a time. I wanted to be able to get a good smooth finish on them like you do on the lathe but still be able to turn another piece without having to wait for them to dry in between coats.This is what I came up with. I drilled a 1/4” hole into 3/4” dowel and inserted a 1/4” dowel to chuck in the drill. I drilled a 3/4” hole in the holder and used a round file to ream it out so there is enough play to let it spin freely. After ...

Stylin' Stylus: aka My Pen Blog #2: My "Turn" at Bat....

204 days ago by DIYaholic | 9 comments »

I’ve had the pleasure of watching fellow LJ’er William learn the art and techniques of turning. He has produced some amazing pens, that someday I can only hope to emulate. Upon seeing his early pens, I had a thought of a pen without a center band. Sure enough, he posted one and has made several since then. To see his turnings & pens, one must read thru his As The Lathe Turns blog... You see, I’m not a fan of the skinny center band with two bulging “ellipses&#...

Stylin' Stylus: aka My Pen Blog #1: Neophyte to ???

204 days ago by DIYaholic | 9 comments »

This blog will chronicle my “Pen Turning Travails”.... Not only am I new to pen turning, I’m new to turning in general, so my early efforts will be that of a greenhorn caliber. I’m trying to do about four or five pens a week. Yeah, the work load will be a demanding one! ;^) Rather than clutter the projects gallery with a multitude of lame novice forms and pathetic finishing attempts, I’ll keep a pictorial progress report of sorts here on this blog. It will ...

Turned Box with Feet

213 days ago by Glen Peterson | 1 comment »

I turned a lidded box recently and was asked to explain how the feet are made. I wrote a paragraph, actually more than once, but I thought it was difficult to understand. Since I had the day off and only 40 projects on the list, I decided to turn a box with feet and describe the process. I’m not going to describe the entire box making process, but I follow Richard Raffen’s method. I’m sure others have done feet like this before, but I’m not sure who. I started with...

I thought I’d share some pictures of some of my older projects. All made in the last 15 years. Scroll Saw Projects: Intarsia roses on wall sconces: I cut jigsaw puzzles for a while.
