Stanley Scraper Plane Handle For Size 12, 12-1/2 & 12-3/4

12-27-2014 10:15 PM by hhhopks | 0 comments »

I wanted to replace the missing handle on my Stanley scraper plane. The project should be a simple turning task if I only know what the key dimensions are. I gave up searching on the net after months of Google without success. Fortunately I was able to get my hands on several examples of the handle. I believe that the handles were hand turned, each one has some minor variance. Attached is a drawing of handle with dimensions for Lumberjocks’ future reference. Hopefully, it will sav...

I know there are some wood turners/carvers here that can do this. I don’t have these skills. https://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=1yWmqbltB-c This is very impressive.

Lathe Tips #1: Quick changing Spindles.

Every year in Mid January I go to this little Fiber arts show and vend. I make Crochet hooks, Yarn bowls and a bunch of other stuff as well.One of the things I make is called an Inkle Loom. They are used to weave long straps for a number of uses, Google it you’ll get the idea.The version I make has 10 pegs on it and I am currently building 3 of them. Since driving an hour and a half to pick up 5/8 Oak dowel rod didn’t fit into my schedule I decided to turn the dowels. Thirty piece...

Dave Plays with Wood Turning #2: Honey Dipper/Potato Masher

12-21-2014 01:50 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Fooling around this evening, I cut off a length of maple that the road crew lopped off our curbside tree a few years ago and put it on my turning set up. Having recently watched a few videos on the ‘This Woodwork’ channel, nee ‘The Teen Woodworker’, I decided to try making a honey dipper. It’s still a little rough. When I showed my wife she said it was huge. Oh well. It was just an experiment anyway.

Pepper Mill Turning Tutorial (PDF file w/ plans)

12-17-2014 07:16 PM by rkober | 0 comments »

I would like to give back a little considering how much I’ve learned from what everyone has shared on Lumberjocks. Here is a tutorial of how I’ve been building the CrushGrind pepper mills: Pepper Mill Turning Tutorial While this is not entirely new information, when I started turning mills it seemed like there were several approaches including some sketchy information. Enjoy!

Making a Viking Bowl Candy Dish

12-05-2014 04:17 PM by stefang | 18 comments »

You may have seen my project post here which explains the background for this design. Several readers expressed their interest in a blog to show how to make one of these, so here it is. BackgroundSince this is not a replica of any genuine historic article, but rather a project inspired by the viking ships and their old time bear mugs you should feel free to put your own twist on this. That’s what the Viking carvers did anyway and no two of the inspirational pieces are alike anywa...

Turning Projects #4: Turning Projects from Thanksgiving Weekend

12-02-2014 03:49 AM by ca8920 | 0 comments »

Here are three pens I turned for co-workers over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. The first two pens are gold in color 30cal Bolt Action Pens. The next three are Patriot pens. The Patriot pens are new to the market and make a very pretty pen once turned. The last two are also new to the market. The last two are Western style pens, also very nice looking pens.

Triumphant Return

11-19-2014 01:34 AM by ChrisCrafts | 0 comments »

It has been over 2 years since I sold everything and ventured off in other directions. This past Friday, I finally got back in the game. I picked up a sweet Nova 3000 DVR lathe!!!! I am still unpacking, and figuring out what all is included. Have a bunch of duplicate items listed on eBay. Sorby Tools, Oneway Chucks, and will be listing some Kelton Hollowing Tools. Hopefully, I will have some actually work to post in the next couple weeks!!!! I can’t wait to turn a perfectly good piece o...
