Hollow Form Turning - A Trifern Class #2: Wood Selection

04-28-2011 11:02 PM by trifern | 14 comments »

Wood Selection Almost every hollow form I turn is from local hardwoods and is turned green. Why use green wood? Green wood is relatively inexpensive, easy to obtain, and easy to turn. It is nearly impossible to find, or afford, large kiln dried wood suitable for turning large pieces. Construction sites, firewood cutters, arborists, and landscape recycling centers are all excellent sources for wood. The biggest problem I have with green wood is my greed. I bring home more wood than I can...

Corner Tables - Take 2 #1: The beginning

04-27-2011 04:09 AM by Rick | 3 comments »

So here I go – making another set of tables. This time for my mother-in-law. She never really asks for anything for herself, so when she saw these and liked them, I couldn’t help but make a set. And this will satisfy a need she’s had in her living room for over a year. So, off I go – only this time it’s really only on weekends we don’t have softball… And for those who trudged through my last set with me through the blog, I’m doing this one...

Improved Workbench #2: Design and Beginning Construction

04-26-2011 05:47 PM by Brian024 | 10 comments »

Finally getting some work started on this build. In this video I go over the design of the bench, lumber selection/layout, and I begin work on the top. I know my method for gluing the top would have been easier with a biscuit joiner, but since the one I have is a piece of junk, I go this route.

Wedding Clock #3: Making Panels

04-25-2011 12:31 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

It’s time to glue up the panels that are needed. I’m making a frame and panel as the back of the clock that will consist of 2 panels stacked on top of each other, held in place by the 3 horizontal rails and 2 vertical stiles. So I’ll need 2 panels for the back. Here’s one of those. Note the carpenter’s triangle that I use to keep the parts aligned. I have already glued the bottom two pieces together but we’ll walk through the rest of making this one. ...

Making of a currency box #1: 1

04-23-2011 10:57 AM by Ian Hawthorne | 2 comments »

Hi All I thought I would share a WIP of a commission I made last year. It was a currency box and was made to hold notes on one side and an inner lid is opened to reveal the coin section. The inside of the inner lid had an area to hold passport and credit cards. It was fitted with 2 locks for a partnership. The box was made from walnut and the motif on the lid was from curly maple. Lined in green suede and fitted with good quality hardware. The exterior was french polished. Enjoy ...

Overall size 24’ x 36’ with a full second floor. Two oversized doors 8’6” x 10’ for deliveries etc. and lots of natural light with oversized windows. My wife and I unload the trucks and push the wood up to the second floor. The next shots are of the second f...

new ideas #7: I made it into the shop finally

04-20-2011 02:24 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I have been grabbing an hour here and there letting things like the grass slide (I am going to do it when I finish this post). I have 6 boxes well on there way, pieces cut for another 9, and that takes care of most of Christmas. Here are a few pics of my progress so far. I have used a lot of different woods and think that most are listed in early post in this thread. I hope to be able to post some of them completely finished soon. As with all things, time will tell. !https://s3.am...

Design And Build - Memorial Pet Urn #4: Using My New Spline Kerf Cutting Jig

04-16-2011 03:11 AM by Brad_Nailor | 3 comments »

Since I last spoke with you… I did a little preliminary sanding and cleanup of the box, sanding the inside and outside along with the top and bottom to 150. I noticed that the box corners have a slight concave curve due to the cupping of the side pieces. Nothing I can do about it now, so i guess it’s just become a design element! But the real headliner was the spline jig I just built. This will be the first time I use it. I mounted the two outside blades from my dado set shi...
