One of a Kind Pen blanks #1: Part 1.

03-13-2014 07:32 AM by BobWemm | 8 comments »

Hi People,I have been asked to do this but I have never done anything like it before so I hope that you will bare with me. I have been playing with pens for just on 13 months now, but that was never the intention when I got my lathe. I was a BOWL man and a few other items, but somehow this pen making has become a big part of my hobby. Being a person who is never happy to just do the same thing I am always looking for ways to improve/improvise.I have heaps of wooden pen blanks that I hav...

Well as my journey of processing wood for use in turning continues. I have been looking for a way to cut my own stuff using the bandsaw I have. it mostly works well enough but is not great at resawing. I came across Izzy Swan great channel on YouTube. I really liked the idea of using my table saw to mill logs, so I decided to tackle the project. The video for this can be found here. After completing the build. I grabbed a piece of holly I have had around for a bit. Cut it to len...

DIY wood stabilization #1: Creating a vacuum container

01-05-2013 12:30 AM by shampeon | 17 comments »

The thermoplastic handle scales on my folk’s W├╝stof knife broke, and I thought I’d replace it with some wood scales. I had some offcuts of claro walnut that were the right size, but I wanted to make sure that the new walnut scales would hold up to kitchen use. I did a little research in some knife-making web sites and forums and learned a bit about wood stabilization, where you impregnate wood with some material (epoxy, resin, etc.) to harden it and make it more durable. Some h...

Inside-Out Ornament Tutorial #1: How to Make an Inside-Out Ornament

01-10-2012 12:32 AM by Donna Menke | 6 comments »

I have wanted to try to make one of these ornaments ever since I first saw them. They are so interesting, and everyone asks- “how did you do that”? I had trouble understanding a lot of the how-to descriptions, and even the videos were hard to follow. I found this one tutorial that I thought was good, and after about the 10th read-through I thought I’d grasped the concept.” http://www.ptwoodturners.org/Tips%20and%20Handouts/INSIDE-OUT.pdfOne of the first things I did wa...

resawing #4: European olive (Olea europaea) turning blanks

06-25-2009 04:01 AM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I never posted it, but the day after I got those paperbark branches I went back to the same location to pick up the logs of the tree they were cutting down fully, so the building there could put up a security camera. I had stopped for the paperbark, and they asked if I wanted to come back for a whole tree the next day. Score! Here’s the tree as it stood between the cut-back paperbarks. I honestly never even looked at it, busy with paperbark at the time, so I was glad I had this one blur...

Desk backboard, cubicle conversation piece

12-16-2008 10:44 PM by rockb | 2 comments »

This simple project was prompted by a forum topic, What do you do for a living? The topic was interesting to me because of the diversity of the folks, jobs, specialties of many of you. I guess with 6000 plus people on LJ’s, there’s gonna be quite a cross section of life. One thing that we all do have in common is our love of wood and what can be created with it. Seems that after we make something, we like to share with others. Problem is, after we share with our wife/mo...
