Alright, fellas, my first ever turning project, and my first project on LJ’s! After telling my boss that I just got a new toy to play with (Harbor Freight 8” by 12” mini-lathe), he asked what I’d want to turn him some tap handles for his DIY Kegerator. Before I could answer, he offered me 5 gallons of his dark IPA home brew. Sold! His stuff always at least places in the competitions he enters, and all I really wanted was some practice turning, so seems like a win...

I just blogged (with lots of photos) about the Morris Chair I built this past spring. This part 1 goes through most of the build, and part 2 will be finishing, upholstery and stuff. For LJs, I’m also posting a project here too. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/6/14/at-last-a-morris-chair (link fixed!) Here’s a few pictures…
It is funny how something that has been a habit so long can fall out of being a habit so quickly. In the past couple of weeks, so many habits that I have acquired over time have been greatly altered. I expect it will be like that for the next few weeks, as we received the KEYS to our new place and are going to finally be able to start moving things there! How exciting this is for us!I am filled with a wide range of emotions right now. I go from being excited and happy to being completely over...
Before i continue on other projects i need some space to work on. Alos my tools were all around garage collecting saw dust… i needed some space to store and secure them properly.

So I started the deck in late June, early July. I came out on the first day of October, which was a chilly day and much to my dismay, this is what I found!!! When it is hot out, and the deck is soaking up the suns heat, there is no gab what so ever! But, when its cold, every seam pulls open. These two were/are the worst. Interestingly enough, the Trek Decking shrinks next to nothing compared to the Choice decking! I was/am disappointed in the Choice Decking Brand! A 1/4 inch lo...
Here is a video of my past and present projects. I thought it would be a lot easier to do it this way to show you some of my work. All projects from wood I have used either pallets or recycled wood from old furniture and off cuts I had laying around in the workshop. I really like to make and build many things as you can see. I hope you like what you see. I really enjoyed building everyone of these projects. I am currently working on a Homemade Bandsaw a drill press and a routing machine...
Had a little problem with my DO curing. After 5 days at 65-70 degrees and 12 hours in an 85 degree room I was still noticing a very small amount of wet oil on the sap wood. After doing some reading I took the table top out for some time in the sun. It was amazing the amount and speed with which oil started running out of the pores. These photos were taken after only 30 minutes in the sun, and only 65 degrees outside. Hopefully a day of sun exposure will finish curing/drawing out any remai...
