Beaded vessel #1: Started making beads and burning lines.

03-27-2017 02:25 PM by Julian | 7 comments »

I recently saw some videos on how to make a “basket weave illusion” bowl. There are some fantastic examples on the internet by wood turners such as Doug Schneiter and Harvey Meyer. I just had to give this a try.Here is one of their projects: The beads were cut with two different sized beading tools (3/16” and 1/4”). One beading tool is a Robert Sorby tool and the other is a D-Way tool. The D-Way tool cuts smoother in my opinion. When all the b...

"Square" Turnings #1: Off-Cut Turning #1

03-22-2017 07:06 PM by onefullturn | 0 comments »

I recently posted a project involving a square turning and was asked how it is done. I often use this method to turn small boxes from off-cuts. Let’s start with this piece of spalted maple. It has nice spalting and a bit of spongy wood on one face. That part will be turned away. I start by mounting between centres and truing up the face near the tailstock. With small pieces like this, turning the corners does usually not present any problems. I start with a 1/4 inch bowl gouge to...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #6: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #6: Tachometer Hack from $3 Bicycle Computer

03-12-2017 06:32 PM by Pete_LJ | 0 comments »

03122017 I got the tachometer installed on the lathe and it works pretty nicely. My concept was to use a $3 Chinese bicycle computer for the tachometer. However, such computers typically measure speed primarily (sometimes cadence, bike-speak for rpm at the pedals, which is typically limited to 199). The computer that I used was purchased off ebay for less than $3. Here is a link for the bike computer(“BC”) that I used: http://www.ebay.com/itm/14-GKunctions-Cycling-Bike-Cyc...

Casting Hybrid Blanks in Resin

02-28-2017 12:27 PM by monkeyman83 | 2 comments »

I know some of you out there clicked on this blog entry hoping to read how I cast hybrid blanks. I am sorry to disappoint you. This post is looking for information more than giving information. I have recently been asked to make one of the very common colored pencil bowls and I have been thinking about the idea of starting to cast my own hybrid blanks due to the large amount of unusable cutoffs I am accumulating from my segmenting projects. ResinI have been convinced that using Alumulite ...
