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 ...

The Masters Slave #2: Plan & Design

10-06-2014 08:12 PM by Obed | 1 comment »

Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...

Modern Madness Table Build

10-05-2014 06:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

This modern table is made from 8/4 maple, and was finished using General Finishes water based stains. Because the top is the most visible part, I built it first. That way I was able to select the best looking boards to feature on the top and use the rest to build the legs.Visit my blog to read see the steps involved in how I created this Custom TableYou can see completion photos on my website Custom Modern table

Finishing my bottom

09-28-2014 12:19 AM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

Many times as furniture makers, we will put a finish on the underside of a tabletop to prevent it from warping or cupping. The theory being, if you put the same finish on the top as you do the bottom the moisture transfer will be equalized on all sides, helping to prevent wood movement. Regardless whether or not this theory is true, there are other reasons to finish the bottom of your tabletop.Continue reading on my blog to see the real reason why I finish the bottom of my tables.

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...
