Windsor Chair #4: Easy Way to Make Chair Spokes

11-18-2014 02:37 AM by PeteCollin | 4 comments »

I tried so many ways to make spokes for the backs of my windsor chairs. I struggled with draw knives, spoke shaves, dowel makers, the lathe, and never got good results. After thinking hard on the problem, I figured out a mechanized way to crank them out easily! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkjAuZ3NAr8

Wood turning tip

07-30-2010 03:00 AM by BigTiny | 4 comments »

For those pf you doing spindle turning on the lathe, or any other turning that uses a “story stick”, here’s a little trick I came up with back in high school wood shop that I’ve found usefull. (we won’t discuss how old this idea is, other than to say it’s older than some uf your fathers!) LOL When you extend your diameters out to the edge of the story stick, use coloured pencils to do so, using a different colour for each different diameter. For exam...

MOBIUS TRIANGLE #1: The design and how it will be?

11-30-2010 11:32 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Actually, I still have so many pending designs such as spiral, rectangular and the parabolic that are on halt. However, when I experimented on this rhumboid …. that from a square rod, I can convert it to a 60×120 degrees rhomboid. Simply saying, I can create two equilateral triangles out of a square cut 45 degrees from end to end. Meaning 45 on x axis and 45 degrees on y axis of a miter. Here is the design: THE CONSTRUCTION.. And here is the latest photo of the proje...

3D Stars #3: Making 3-D Stars

02-13-2013 03:25 AM by Aggie69 | 4 comments »

After creating a program to calculate dimensions and cutting angles and designing and building a jig to make the cuts with, I was ready to put things into practice.

I quickly decided that even though the wood was cheap (free), it varied greatly in thickness, even within one piece, and it was extremely brittle and splintered easily when cut. Needless to say, I wasn’t pl...
