My lathe journeys. #36: ... Dang! That was a hard "catch" !

08-30-2015 12:23 AM by JoeinGa | 10 comments »

So I’m turning my latest bowl. It’ll be the biggest one yet that I’ve done. Everything is going along fairly well and I can only guess ( in hindsight ) that I must have shifted my weight and leaned in a bit too much, because all of a sudden … BANG! The tool catches and next thing I know I’m holding only HALF of the tool! YIKES! Made me jump when it happened. .Looking at the pix you can see that my glue joint actually held, it was the walnut that snapped. .......

Clearcut Chisels Restoration

08-04-2015 01:32 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

Well it’s official I am hooked… restoring old tools is my new obsession. This time I found some old chisels, Clearcut brand, ever heard of it? Me either. I also couldn’t find much information on the brand online, I did find one post that mentioned they are from Montgomery Ward but I can’t be sure of that. No matter the steel feels good. Guess we will see if it holds an edge. I also shot a video of the restoration which can be viewed here.View on YouTube As you can ...

This is No Bull!

07-31-2015 04:33 PM by BrentH | 6 comments »

No Bull! —My neighbor was pretty impressed when I told him I’d entered a bowl in the County Fair—until he realized it wasn’t spelled “B-U-L-L”. Still, I did all right. I think the prize money is $5. I’ve always told my wife that someday my woodworking would pay off! (Original details of this project were posted on 7/22/15.)

Woodturning Projects #1: Epoxy Resin and a Cracked Blank

07-20-2015 02:15 AM by UncleDave | 4 comments »

I was talking to a friend at work about turning, and he said he had thought about trying it at one time. He put the cart before the horse, so to speak, and bought some blanks but never got a lathe. He had them sitting around for a long time, some nice cherry blanks, and gave them to me. The blanks he had were all cut out of the tree pretty poorly I think, as they contain wood really close to the center of the trunk. The first blank I did wasn’t that bad with the cracking, but this large...

Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT

06-29-2015 07:27 AM by Yuval Eitan | 0 comments »

Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT I made this bat as a birthday present for my (back then) nine years old elder son.We have no tradition of playing baseball here, but my son was exposed to it at school, and wished he had one. I had no idea what size will fit a kid, the proportions it shoul have, the types of wood usually used etc, so I did some online research. I didn’t follow the official measures strictly, but got a fair idea. It had to be manageable in terms of size and we...
