questions from a beginner

10-14-2013 10:45 AM by samdavis224 | 0 comments »

Hi all! I am a young 16 year old guy that is starting to be interested in wood turning and also antler turning. currently i have shaped multiple antlers into different knives, but am looking for a good protective coating. I do not want to be able to use it as an everyday knife, but a ceremonial knife. I want to be able to have it be sharp but don’t want to harm the bone itself. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

thought of the day #1: vidoes, blogs and mentors

12-28-2012 07:18 PM by jacob34 | 4 comments »

I am sitting here honestly slightly bummed because I would love to be in my shop but my 4 year old and wife (who works nights) are sleeping and my shop happens to be directly below them. I am however thinking about a project that I have been fighting to get started and with other projects and well life getting in the way I have only built it in my head (probably look a lot better if it stays there). This project however has a few things new in it, as I am trying to implement new aspects in...

Deep Water Questions #1: Table saw dilemmas

02-19-2011 06:55 AM by kowtow | 10 comments »

I’m pretty new at this, I worked in a shop last year that had the best of everything right at your fingertips.

When I left, I took my hand tools. And my desire to build a comparable shop, and I moved to Southern Kentucky. Now, I’m getting there. I have a workbench a...

What am I missing? #1: re: tenon cutting and jigs and such.

02-05-2011 04:43 PM by woodklutz | 8 comments »

Why if we can cut a tenon on a table saw router table or band saw with out a jig device do we purchase or make devices to create them?I tseems is so simple with a few carefully measured cuts the job is done.

This question also applies to the myriad of accessories that you are told you need because you discover that if you did not know they existed you would have made it yourself out of necessity from scraps and felt proud that you did. It ...

My Roubo Build #7: Some Considerations Along the Way, or a Cry for Help

05-17-2010 06:55 AM by naomi weiss | 18 comments »

As i have been building this thing, i have had my nose in the Schwarz’s book. However, i cringed when during my review i read this: Once you look at the characteristics that make a species good for a workbench, you see that white oak, Southern yellow pine, fir, poplar or just about any species (excepting bass wood and the soft white pines) will perform brilliantly. (p.14) And for some salt in the wound: Anyone who has purchased a white pine 2×4 bench from a home center can...

What I learnt in 1 Year on LJ

05-21-2009 10:55 PM by PurpLev | 31 comments »

Looking at the stats, it’s been 356 days. and a whole lot more of a woodworking since day 1. The passion is still going strong, but the shared experiences and information that has flown around has added so many new abilities and capabilities. I want to thank everyone that ever responded to any of my questions in person, or indirectly by asking questions on the forums, that I had in my mind as well, or answered those. there are many opinions between the 10K members, some share the ...
