A TOTALLY NEW project idea....!!

9 hours ago by TannerTurnings | 0 comments »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on an idea that I’ve NEVER seen or even heard of anyone making before. Therefore I am obviously having to work out methods & techniques “on the job”. It’s only a small item that I hope will sell well at some craft fairs & markets, and possibly on line sales too. I’m NOT going to reveal what this item is, until I have got it the way I want it, and have made a few ready to sell, BUT…I WILL reveal it on...

I’ll walk you through the steps to make a wooden business card holder like this one. Choose what ever wood you’d like and follow along. A few passes through the table saw and a quick spin on the lathe is all it takes. I hope you enjoy the business card tutorial.

A Quick Tip for New Turners

10 days ago by TannerTurnings | 3 comments »

Something to be aware of when turning Bowls:- When you sharpen your Bowl Gouge you may get a tiny “Burr” on the heal of the bevel that then results in scratches in your piece at the point of transition between the wall & the base on the inside. It’s always worth checking for a burr on the heal, and if you find one, just remove it with a fine file and then a bit of fine sandpaper, just to make sure the heal is smooth.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1376: Meeting Some Friends

23 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe that it is Thursday already. I honestly don't know what happened to this past week. It is difficult for me to understand how quickly time can pass, and just when I think it couldn't move any quicker, it seem to accelerate to an even greater speed.I can finally say that I am pretty much caught up with things. While we only were gone for four days, it seems to have taken the next several days to get caught up again. I think it shows me just how busy I can be on a d...

Why buy it when you can make it! #8: First turning project - Cherry Pepper Mill

39 days ago by paxorion | 1 comment »

A few years ago (before we were married), my wife bought me a monstrously huge pepper mill (I think it was about 3 feet long). It was awesome, except for the fact that it was a pain to use and had formed a fairly substantial crack over the years. Fate would have it that my daughter developed a huge love for dismantling it (apple doesn’t fall far from the tree), and lost several key pieces of the grind mechanism. After a painful hunt, we decided to give up on that mill and consider bu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1364: To The Scroll Saw!

40 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was able to finish up my drawing yesterday. Whether or not I was able to squeak the project in under the deadline for submissions remains to be seen. I honestly was not sure of the cutoff date, but in some ways (to me, anyway) it didn't really matter. Either way I wanted to create these designs. Either way I win. As time goes by and and I do what I do longer and longer, I have discovered that there are a world of options open for me. I used to get rather tense about deadlines and t...

Work in progress #1: First post

51 days ago by Brehzer | 0 comments »

I am not one talk to about myself at length but I do feel a desire to share my work with others. As a teacher I have a direct way to show off my expertise, what little I may have, and pass it on as a learning experience. I hope through this blog I can inspire or make people think about new things. I’ll start by including some quick projects: pens. Seems everyone can do them but everyone still loves them. I’ll add pictures of some oft favorites later but I can tell you from e...

Tip: Directing Shavings and Dust

55 days ago by DeLayne Peck | 7 comments »

I have enjoyed lathe work for years. And, for some reason, getting completely covered with saw dust was a woodworking badge of honor. Not to mention the look of horror on my wife’s face when I tried to get back into the house. Then, I ruined the whole gig:. I aimed a small fan on a low setting at my lathe project. Shavings and dust are blown down range away from me, pile up neatly, and are easily vacuumed up. The same dumb trick probably works with other messy operations &#...

Jalen's interview on The Highland Woodworker

63 days ago by Jeff Waggoner | 2 comments »

This is Jalen’s interview on The Highland Woodworker. His interview starts at the 19:20 mark. I need to make one disclaimer. Jalen was not on the cover of Fine Woodworking. That image was a gift they made for him as a souvenir when we toured their office last summer. You can see more about his projects here.
