Chip carving patterns #3: Grid pattern #1

02-25-2010 02:16 AM by lovestoys | 2 comments »

Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew). This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for some...

Woodworking Show This Weekend in Detroit Area

02-24-2010 01:10 PM by jockmike2 | 6 comments »

Just a reminder to all the Michiganders that there is a Woodworking Show this weekend in Taylor down by Detroit. Should be fun we’re going with Rustic Rick and his wife and meeting up with SteveMI. The html address is “http://www.woodworkingshows.com/” Hope to see a lot of Lumberjocks there. Maybe we can figure out a Lumberjock Picnic for an earlier month so we don’t freeze the balls off the old brass monkey. (An old Nautical Term).

The All New LongworthSteve Chuck, or SteveWorth Chuck

02-23-2010 07:37 PM by jockmike2 | 14 comments »

SteveMI made me a guinea pig for a project he made of a Longworth Chuck. Gladly I accepted. It was a beautiful model and worked great, one thing I improved on for my own turning was to make the bumpers longer because I usually turn bigger bowls. He had used rubber cane bumbers with an inner core of oak which worked very good, but my design served my needs better. In our communication he told me he is selling these and making a 16 inch larger model, mine is an 11 and 1/4 inch model. It really ...

Another basic coaster pattern. I use the straight lines to practice my “pull” cuts. The star bursts are done with a stab knife.

I have started to plan my first rocking chair. It is going to be in the idea of my present chair where the majority of it is going to be made of as many pieces as I can fit. Here is the twist. Since becoming a member of Lumber Jocks I have received some of the most wonderful comments, These comments coming from such talented people has inspired an Idea that I think we could all get into. The Big Idea. We can mail scrap pieces to each other to be incorporated into a project. The main th...

I am curious what is the name of the tool used to lessen the vibration while turning spindles ( or long pieces ). Is there any good designs for a home made one?

Tangrams

02-19-2010 04:40 PM by Dave Owen | 2 comments »

In most places (including Florida) it’s just too nippy to work in the shop, so how about taking a break! Forget the complexities of woodworking and the many other things that clutter our minds. Think instead of “fun and games” – or better still think of “wooden puzzles”. To call a “tangram” a woodworking project would be a stretch, but for such a quick and simple project, one can provide many, many hours of fun (and occasional frustration) ...
