3 start rope with a 15' radi.

02-15-2012 05:41 PM by grosa | 3 comments »

Has anyone ever done a rope turning on a 15” or more radius ? I have been thinking about this for months. It can’t be done on the legacy mill. I don’t know if there is any other way other than carving it by hand. Do any of you talented wood workers know of a way to do this in a repeatable way ?

Half scale Bombe # 3

03-09-2012 01:13 PM by KPW | 4 comments »

Got some more pics of the progress on the chest. Draw bottoms,draw sides and backs. Started on the feet. I cut them on my trusty old craftsman jig saw. The curves were too tight to do it on the band saw. I,ll probably go through 6 or 7 blanks before I get 4 that I like. Ball and claw in this scale is tuff. Not giving up yet but may have to go with just a simple cabriolet foot. Wish me luck.

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #6: Carving drawer handles

01-17-2008 09:59 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

Yesterday afternoon, I shifted my gears into the carving mode I decided to make drawer handles, & decided that a small rose would look kind of nice. Actually, to tell you the truth, I had made that decision when first designing the box.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~First I picked out a piece of cut off, & drill 3 holes with my plug cutter. These plugs will later be used to hold the rose while caving, & also for fastening to the drawer front. ...

Scrap Wood #1: what is that

05-24-2013 12:44 AM by Jim Earl | 4 comments »

Every once in a while I will run across an article where I see the phrase “Scrap Wood”, I’m terribly sorry but in my shop or garage, I definitely “DO NOT” have any Scrap wood. If it isn’t used for Making my wood burnings, it is used for my Christmas ornaments. So is ANY of you have any scrap wood, get ahoad of me and I will let you know where to send it. Thank You Jim Earl

Winter is Bowl Roughing Season....!! (work in progress)

02-05-2015 02:21 AM by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Well, it’s Winter here in the UK, and a good time to source some green timber & rough turn some bowls.I’m quite lucky in that I have a few friends who work cutting trees, so getting freshly cut timber isn’t much of a problem, and getting timber that has been cut in the Winter months is probably best if you want to turn natural edge bowls, but is also quicker drying as the sap content is less. Also, the temperature is much lower so that the timber doesn’t dry out s...

WWI Whirligigs

01-20-2010 01:41 AM by RicksWhirligigs | 3 comments »

Hey everyone!I have recently opened up a shop on Etsy.com to sell my wooden airplane whirligigs. I have so much fun making them, and love learning the history behind each model I build. I have recently moved into the business of selling them, as i cannot possibly fit anymore in my yard!!! You’ll find that the prices I have chosen are very low, just enough to keep the cost of supplies from getting my wifes attention! so check them out here:http://www.rickswhirligigs.etsy.comthanks!!!

Well, been a day or two, i did get the second long post done. I also got the first short (front) post done. Drawknife and spokeshave work, then a lot of sanding. i did make one seat rail, as a pattern for the other two. Just a simple curve on the bandsaw. Spokeshave to clean up. Went to menards the other day, and bought a 5/4 thick piece of pine 5/4×4 x 8’. Figured I could use this for the rockers. Board is clear, straight and flat sawn. Turn it up on edge t...
