Turning Projects #4: Turning Projects from Thanksgiving Weekend

12-02-2014 03:49 AM by ca8920 | 0 comments »

Here are three pens I turned for co-workers over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. The first two pens are gold in color 30cal Bolt Action Pens. The next three are Patriot pens. The Patriot pens are new to the market and make a very pretty pen once turned. The last two are also new to the market. The last two are Western style pens, also very nice looking pens.

Workshop #28: Finishing Rack

03-29-2014 12:12 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Been working on a number of bottle openers and decided to try a lacquer finish on them as it should hold up a bit better. Problem was how to apply the finish on a round thing. Here is the simple solution I came up with. Basic piece of scrap wood (actually game that did not work out) 3/8” bolts and nuts. It worked worked well. I have 5 new bottle openers already dried with lacquer and the epoxy is now curing on them. Looking forward to delivering these to the gift shop ...

Kids in the Shop! #3: Tis the Season 2- Quick Pen

12-15-2013 02:11 PM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

So Thursday night my DW reminded me that my daughter’s last CCD class before Christmas was Saturday morning. The problem was I was not home Thursday, had to work on Friday evening. So Friday night when I got home I got a blank drilled out and glued up. First thing Saturday morning we got up and started in on a pen. Sophia did a portion of the roughing on this one but since we were a bit behind the eight ball I helped her get it to final shape. Also there was the issue that I had ...

Kids in the Shop! #2: Turn for the Troops

11-10-2013 09:21 PM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

As I was tied up at a Craft Fair yesterday my wife and daughter went to the turn for the troops event at the local Woodcraft. They both turned a pen and added it to the package to be shipped. I am proud of both of, most especially my daughter. She is now 7 and has done this event a number of times now. She is getting better on the lathe every time she uses it. Unfortunately there was no picture of the final pens this year. We have plans for a number of turned gifts for her teachers an...

My first Turning Project

06-10-2013 06:31 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 9 comments »

For a very long time now I have been wanting to learn how to turn on a lathe. Well recently I was able to purchase a lathe using a Gift card I won thanks to your votes. My first project, wow, well since I am a fan of pen turning, I thought that would be the place to start. So I turned a Bullet Pen. This is a 30 caliber bolt action bullet pen kit and man is it cool. I will be making more of these for sure. I really enjoyed turning and I can see where I will be doing a lot of it in the future a...

Silver Filigree Pen Project with vacuum chamber.

05-28-2012 03:22 AM by Schimmel | 2 comments »

This is a project I worked on where I took Sliver Filigree and worked it into a pen. The silver filigree was hand made 100%. I worked the filigree around the tube and then fixed it on to the tube. I then cast it in resin and turned as you wood any other pen. I learned a few things along the way. I did not pick a pen kit with enough meat on the bones so to speak for the tube. the filigree even as thin as I could get it was to tall and came through during the turning proce...

On The Lathe #1: Bummer!! or My first Celtic knot

03-14-2012 04:11 PM by clieb91 | 6 comments »

So a few weeks ago I took a course on building segmented pens at my local Woodcraft. The class was very good and we came away with 4 different types; Celtic Knot, Spiderweb, Spiral Staircase, and a small piece of a Herringbone (which I am not sure I will be doing again) The Celtic knot is really the only one that was a complete blank and I decided to give it a try this morning before I started in on the other pens I am planning to turn this afternoon and through the weekend. Unfortunately it ...
