Indexing on a Wood Lathe #1: Setting up a 36 and 72 Degree Index

07-04-2015 06:03 PM by Jim Jakosh | 11 comments »

I have a locking index wheel built into my Craftsman lathe and it works well but it is set at every 15 degrees. In an effort to make 5 or 10 equal divisions, I found I needed another index wheel so I decided to add it to back of the lathe chuck. I used aluminum but hardwood or steel would have worked too. I was wondering what I had in my shop that was accurate for setting degrees and pulled the Wixie box(Grizzly version). I mounted a steel bar on the plate for the back of the chuck so the Wix...

Turning a Wooden Scoop #1: How I turn a sccop on the lathe

06-27-2015 08:55 PM by Jim Jakosh | 22 comments »

Candy, this blog’s for you!!!!!!!!!!!This is the process I use to turn a scoop from a wood blank on the lathe.I start by defining the volume needed in the the scoop. The formula is Pi x R squared x depth I planned on a 1/2 cup scoop and the volume of 4 oz is 7.218 cubic inches and I want the inside to be 2 5/8” So the formula is 3.1416 x ( 1.312) squared x depth = 7.218. The depth figures out to be 1.33” I start by drawing it out and then adding scrap wood in the area...

My latest tools are these tiny trim planes. Again thanks Mads Felding for the inspiration.They are made from Jarrah and a really lovely figured piece of Banksia; all wood came from the scrap bin. I made two to use up all the timber.The blade is cut from an old 2nd hand Stanley plane using a Dremel. I still have to make another blade, insert the brass pin and design a wedge.I will post pics of the finished articles as soon as I have them finished.

Not always wood #1: PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking.

06-13-2015 11:38 PM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking. Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else. Simply making stuff. Most projects are made purely off the cuff and only have a general idea how it will turn out.” So basically just generally making stuff. Although wood will be my most co...

building a bench and stuff #5: The home stretch

06-12-2015 05:25 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

Warning: pic heavy Just posting a bunch of progress. Leg vise continued. Cutting the bridal joint. Lignum vitae pin for the guide. This stuff strong. Trying to incorporate this as a pin holder but haven’t come across an idea that I can pull off with what I have on hand. So it’s on the back burner for now. Hammered a poplar dowel and drilled a center so I could bore it with a forstner. Didn’t work out so well. Stuck a roll pin...
