Segmented woodturning is an interesting craft. It is one of those wood projects that requires more than just a wood lathe and some lathe tools. It helps to have woodworking equipment such as a table saw, a planer, a jointer, a mitresaw, an open stand drum sander, and a disc sander. Also when starting out you’ll need to design for your segmented woodturning project . First, decide if you want to turn a bowl, a vase, salt and peppermills, or even a lamp. Next, you’ll need to dr...
Thought I’d share one of my more popular projects with everyone. This is a candle holder that I make quite a few of and still now and again make mistakes as you will see. I hope everyone enjoys this episode—
This video tutorial focuses on mortising the base. Eventually, this section will be reversed and the mortise being made will provide a dovetail-like opening that the chuck’s jaws will grip.There are 3 sections of the segmented vase. Ultimately, all 3 sections will be glued together to form a vase that will be 9” x 12” when finished. There are 18 rings and 24 segments in each ring.

Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #1: What items to build for fundraising auction?
My wife will be traveling out to San Diego in the middle of November to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk.

There will be an auction at the event, with all the proceeds going directly to the walkathon. I would like to build a few things that can be auctioned-off to help ra...

How often have you dined at a restaurant and the waiter or waitress asked you “Would you would like some cracked peppers with your meal?” Probably more than once, right? If you’re like me I answer “Sure. I’d love some.” There’s just something nice about having a good meal with freshly ground salt and pepper. For a long time I have browsed through my various woodworking catalogs and noticed mechanisms for salt and peppermills. Then one day I decided to order the mechanisms and make a se...
I have decided to build my own guitar. It’s something I have wanted to do for a long time and I hope to eventually turn it into a FT hobby someday.. So I finally took that first step this week. I got plans from Chris over at http://www.eguitarplans.com he draws up some really good plans. The body is going to be a 2 piece Solid Mahogany body. I started by cutting the two sides to length about 19” for this guitar so that I had a little extra to play with. Glue U...
I made a trip to my favorite wood supplier. The reason that he’s my favorite is that all of the wood I get is free. I get the scraps, cutoffs, splits etc from his door and window making process. I’ve been collecting Honduras Mahogany in my latest trips. Today one of the pieces had a name on it 6/4 Acajou. That was new to me and in my research is also called Honduras Mahogany some places call it just Genuine Mahogany. Over the last month I’ve probably picked up about 300 B...
