Woodturning video...the 9" x 12" Segmented Vase

06-22-2010 08:57 PM by Bob Simmons | 2 comments »

Woodturning has taken its hold once again. In this video we are back at the wood lathe with our turning tools working on a new woodworking project, a segmented vase of 18 rings and 432 segments. You’ll see the woodturning process from the very beginning along with edited clips displaying the various wood gouges chosen to cut and shape this segmented vase of mahogany, cherry, maple, and walnut. When the actual woodturning is completed we will break out the sandpaper and illustrate ...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2: A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2

06-12-2010 06:12 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

On the following day after the glue has set, the band clamps are removed. It is time to begin truing up the ring of segments. In order to attain flatness on one of the ring’s edge I’ll lay a segment flat on the bed of the disc sander. It’s important to maintain a 90 degree angle during this operation. Take your time and make sure of accuracy. When the edge is truly flat we can then proceed to the lathe. Now the ring is mounted on the lathe and the opposite edge...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #1: The Cutting and Assembly of Staves

06-11-2010 11:11 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

As you can see my first maple segment is cut. The dimensioning of the material¬† has been taken care of and the compound mitresaw has the necessary angle. I use a Wixey digital gauge to ensure the accuracy of the sawblades’s angle. The stop-block on the right is clamped into place to maintain a consistent width for the segment.¬† (Note:I always use scrap to test the accuracy of the segment’s angles. I do this by cutting 1/2 the amount of bowl segments and taping the outside perimete...

Finishing the slats

06-05-2010 10:35 PM by Blinky | 3 comments »

Another piece of scrap has befallen my assorted blades, and has now become the slats for the bench. It was a large hunk of Doug Fir or Pine. It was originally going to be a large slab bench, but I decided it would be too large & unwieldy. It was 3” x 12” x 8’ – warped, twisted, split, cupped, weather-worn and worm-eaten; beautiful!Now it’s 6 slats 2 1/4” w x 1 1/2” h x 52” long. The previously mentioned character charms still exist, just...
