Woodturning Projects #1: Epoxy Resin and a Cracked Blank

07-20-2015 02:15 AM by UncleDave | 1 comment »

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.

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.

Turning a Wooden Scoop #1: How I turn a sccop on the lathe

06-27-2015 08:55 PM by Jim Jakosh | 22 comments »

Candy, this blog’s for you!!!!!!!!!!!This is the process I use to turn a scoop from a wood blank on the lathe.I start by defining the volume needed in the the scoop. The formula is Pi x R squared x depth I planned on a 1/2 cup scoop and the volume of 4 oz is 7.218 cubic inches and I want the inside to be 2 5/8” So the formula is 3.1416 x ( 1.312) squared x depth = 7.218. The depth figures out to be 1.33” I start by drawing it out and then adding scrap wood in the area...

Predominantly Shopsmith-Built Shaker-Style Candle Stand Table from a single 2X4

06-07-2015 11:22 PM by MrToolHunter | 4 comments »

Though I was traveling on business most of the month of May and only had a couple hours to spend in my shop, I had psyched myself up to participate in the 3rd Annual Summers Woodworking 2X4 contest and for the most part am happy that I did. I bet that I almost spent as much time sorting through 2X4’s at the several local Lowes and Home Depots and purchases a half dozen of them before locating my “White Whale”. It was an absolutely perfect specimen and will be the 2X4 ...
