What a beautiful place to build and he has a complete shop there also . Well on to how I made the pattern .Two pieces of 1/4” mdf bent around the original form with glue and the cowls for clamping ( sorry forgot the pic ).I laminated ...

Safety (or the lack thereof) #2: Fixing what I broke...finishing the exploded bowl.

01-19-2013 09:20 PM by PASs | 1 comment »

In the first post in this series I showed the small bowl that came off the lathe at 1300 RPM.The blank wasn’t too damaged, so I reglued it and finished it.Finished project. The regluing went so well that I didn’t have to return the face of the bowl, I just sanded it to get the glue off, then a coat of 2# shellac buffed off while wet with an old T-shirt.1. back on the lathe with safety cage in place. 2. shellac on the front. 3. getting ready to round the corners off…...

Tip of the day! Use a push stick!

01-17-2013 02:59 PM by OregonBurls | 32 comments »

THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too. Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick! Lets say it all together now! Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick!Keep your tools sharp and ...

Building of my 8 inch wheel drum sander.

01-15-2013 04:54 AM by Ken90712 | 11 comments »

Recently a couple of buddies on here asked where I had been lately. Well, between the sports and military and work I finally tore my knee up and needed a little maintenance. Six weeks with no weight on it left me sitting on my behind dreaming of getting back in the shop. I have a close friend named Paul, who is an amazing machinist & welder. He is the one that taught me to weld. This allowed me to make my outdoor dining table that I have posted on here. We were talking one day about ...

giving of the ornaments

01-14-2013 04:13 PM by Jim Earl | 2 comments »

this is the 4th year I have made Christmas tree ornaments, and given them to the elementry schools in my area. This year was one of the most gratifications I had ever recieved. The ladies in the School office insisted I go around to esch class and give them out. I got the idea from my younger Grand Kiids. These are about 3” – 6” tall, blanks, and ready for the kids to paint them as they want. each year the kids get more and more greatful for them and write me cards from each...

Living Room Display Shelves #1: "The old cliche about the devil"

01-14-2013 04:24 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

The devil is in the details. That’s especially true for an impatient lout like me. When it’s close to being done, I want it done now! I decided to work backwards. My shelves are going to be surrounded by the same style of trim I made for my home. I decided to use a little facetted rossette pattern in the major areas. I’ll let you see for yourself a little further down. I started with solid cherry flooring – $1.00 a foot. I had to strip the finish with a belt sand...

My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?

Plane re-hab, from the mailbox to the wood.

01-05-2013 03:30 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Spent some time today, half waiting on the Mail Carrier to drop off a package, the other in re-furbishing the contents. You know it will be ugly, when it comes in the door, double bagged! Kind of rusty, not too hateful, though… Ok, first thing ( after burning the bag it came in) was to tear it all down to just a pile of parts. Usually have a small box handy, because all them smaller parts like to take off on me… I kept going until i had a cleaned of base, and a pile o...
