Fully Off Axis Stem Goblet (work in progress)

10-20-2014 08:06 PM by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Here’s a little idea I had last night, & decided to work out a way I could do it. It’s a Fully Off Axis Stemmed Goblet, where the whole of the stem is a half inch (13mm) off set from the cup & the base. To do this, I roughed to round, formed the cup, hollowed out (leaving the walls rather thicker than usual) & finished the inside & outside of the cup. (I should have also finished the shoulder of the stem section too…I’ll know for next time!) I then ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #29: Tip of the Day!!!

10-20-2014 05:41 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

The weather seems to have gone from bad to worse, at least the cars have stayed dry! So the only work I have been doing is reclaiming some mahogany timbers that were left in the garden by the previous owner, to rot, and after cleaning them up, they turned out to be well seasoned usable timber, which only needed a few nail holes filling, after which I have used them both for making window sills and shelving. All of which I have left natural, and used my home made beeswax polish to bring out bo...

Mary May's on line wood carving lessons ***AND turning blanks for carving a Philly Highboy rosette #2: Moving beyond the first 13 online lessons..

10-19-2014 01:54 AM by xraydav | 1 comment »

Didn’t think when I signed up for online carving lessons that there would be any interaction with the teacher. I was wrong. You get to ask questions, make comments and post your completed lessons for feedback. If you check out Mary May’s online carving lessons you will see that in and amongst the 50+ video lessons, there are the first 13 lessons. The basics. These take you through different kinds of gouges and chisels, sharpening those gouges and chisels. Sharpening a V Ch...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #28: Carport

10-14-2014 12:41 AM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

I recently decided that I would retire gracefully from motorcycling, I bought a new bike in March and have only done 500km due in part to the weather, and probably more importantly due to the horrendous standard of driving in Colombia, there isn’t a day when I am out in the car that I don’t pass at least two accidents involving motorcycles. So the bike is being sold, and I have purchased a 1982 Suzuki SJ, which I am more than happy with, but it came with it’s own problem...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #27: Pipe Clamps!

09-19-2014 02:12 AM by PhilBello | 7 comments »

Our second winter of the year is definitely here, just as warm, but plenty of storms! So the Kiosk roof is on hold now, probably until November, when we are back to summer again. In the mean time, all woodwork came to a halt a little over a week ago, with the arrival of a new family member, a four legged one, we wanted a companion for our schnauzer, so took on a rescue dog, that had been abused, the first three days we thought it was the biggest mistake we had made, he is only a small coll...

Woodworking Supplies and Resources near Osan AB, ROK

09-15-2014 05:34 AM by MilFlyer | 1 comment »

Woodworking Supplies and Resources near Osan AB, ROK I’m putting this post together for any other military or DOD woodworkers that end up getting stationed out here at Osan AB in South Korea so they have some idea of what’s out there (and not) for them.First, there is NO woodshop on Osan. The closest locations are Yongsan (1.5hr drive) and Kunsan (3.0hr+ drive). They are shutting down Yongsan and will be eventually moving the woodworking shop to Camp Humphreys, but the timeline right now i...

Totally NEW project....REVEILED!

09-11-2014 10:07 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

This project is what I call “THE PROPOSAL EGG” It’s a simple idea that, until last night I had never heard of anyone else ever making. It’s a SPINDLE TURNING project that involves making a hollowed out “EGG”, that becomes a “lidded box” (eventually the base part will have a small round “ring cushion” once my friend has made some or me, as round ring cushions just don’t seem to be available to buy in the UK) that a ring can be...

Education #4: Finally, the parquet is done.

09-10-2014 03:38 PM by CreekOne | 0 comments »

So after two weeks of work and experimenting I have finally finished the parquet. All the 120 pieces are dead square and equal in size, down to a error of .01mm.So we made a total of 1200 pieces and only about 360-400 was usable. Than the best work begun, laying the pieces and gluing edge to edge: So after about 4 hours of intense concentration I was done. And a close-up: Tomorrow I will glue this up on a fibre board with a back of Brazilian Rosewood; got to have a nice und...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #7: The Superfoot winning entry

09-05-2014 04:44 AM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi everybody, Back in the initial entry to the making of my flute I talked about the competition that it was made for and in the last post I had photos of the entries (sadly all but one) and a picture of what we were given to work with. Here is the winning entry by David Stanley and I think you will agree it is a really wonderful piece. It is a clock, in the pictures it has no hands, and as per normal with David it is just so well carved. Also; David doesn’t use plans!
