Woodturning...a Segmented Vase of Walnut and Maple #1: Part 1...the transition at 800 rpm

1538 days ago by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

Perhaps the object pictured above looks a bit like a wooden pineapple, but trust me it will look a whole lot different as you will soon see. There are 14 rings to this vase and a total of 416 segments that are fit and glued together using Titebond 2 yellow glue. If the vase is going to hold water as well as flowers then an opening is necessary. As you can see a 1-7/8” forstner bit is being used to drill out an opening to allow for a glass vial to be inserted. The vas...

This week in urban logging #2: Spalting logs, it's just a matter of time.

2260 days ago by Daren Nelson | 8 comments »

I think I timed these about right (just shy of 2 years), spalted maple, fresh sawn this morning. In the “group shot” of the 4 bookmatched live edge sets you cannot see the detail, so I took a couple close ups. Really any place on the boards would have made an interesting close up. With a finish that spalt should really be wild looking. 16”-18” wide sawn 5/4”

Now the video goes; ahora si funciona el video.

1812 days ago by xylosapiens | 6 comments »

The change in progress: towards a “new end”. Sorry, I donĀ“t know what the problem was, but here you have the video working. I checked it. As I told you I had to do some modifications in order to accomplish a “new” requirement of my client. The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I dec...

Progressing Forward

1358 days ago by matt garcia | 7 comments »

Well it finally wamed up enough around here to do some glue ups. I got my feet made and glued up, and attached them to the base. Then I routed the edge of the base, and made the transition moulding and glued that. Now a mother cold front has come through, and it looks like it might freeze tonight!! Good thing I got busy in the shop yesterday. I also went to Clark’s for some secondary lumber. It must have been my lucky day Saturday!! When I arrived at Clark’s, first thing ...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #7: The inlay

1003 days ago by JoeyG | 4 comments »

Here is a coffee cup my daughter picked out for me while at Discovery Cove, Orlando, FL. I thought you would like to see my inspiration for this part of the project. Above is the carving filled with epoxy and sanded. Now to clean out air bubble craters and epoxy again. I love this blue, it has a metallic flake in it that looks great. Until next time, Joey

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #756: Wonderful Possibilities

785 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As I mentioned the other day, on Friday I received an email from my editor inquiring about the next project I was to be submitting for the magazine. The holiday issue was heading out to the printer and she was looking ahead to the next issue and beginning to map it out. This took me a bit by surprise (it should not have, but I have been busy in so many directions that I just wasn’t thinking about what to do next for the magazine!) Keith had asked me the week before if I was going t...

A Guitar for Daniel #4: Wishful thinking and home stretches

624 days ago by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

I totally screwed up the fret board, so we had to make a new one. This time we figured out how to do the diamond shaped inlays that Daniel wanted. Since the last time, we un-clamped the body from the glue-up, flipped it over, routed the back of the through-neck flat, and then cut out the body There’s the guitar cut-out with the truss rod set in place. The new fret board was cut with the Festool MFS jig and a 1/8” bit, after which we took the corners out of the diamond...
