"Square" Turnings #1: Off-Cut Turning #1

03-22-2017 07:06 PM by onefullturn | 0 comments »

I recently posted a project involving a square turning and was asked how it is done. I often use this method to turn small boxes from off-cuts. Let’s start with this piece of spalted maple. It has nice spalting and a bit of spongy wood on one face. That part will be turned away. I start by mounting between centres and truing up the face near the tailstock. With small pieces like this, turning the corners does usually not present any problems. I start with a 1/4 inch bowl gouge to...

New Machine

03-01-2017 01:55 PM by mikeacg | 6 comments »

Got a new toy for the shop and have been spending my spare time learning how to use it so haven’t been as active on the forum as I’d like. The new machine is called SideWinder and was designed and built by a friend of mine, Gary Campbell, over in Marquette. (He’s quite active on CNC forums). It is a CNC machine that uses a Jet lathe and has 2 functions. It can be used a a CNC lathe or as a recoil (or the combination of both). This gives me the ability to turn stuff reall...

Woodturning Projects #5: Napkin Rings from the USS Shangri-La

02-25-2017 02:46 PM by Scott Seganti | 6 comments »

Here is a video I made making a reproduction of a napkin ring from the USS Shangri-La. This napkin ring was given to my aunt’s father who was a ‘plank owner’ aboard the USS Shangri-La (CV-38). When I first saw this napkin ring I immediately wanted to turn one. Not only do I appreciate being able to recreate a part of history… I really like the design. This is a case where form follows function. I’ve spent my share of time at sea and can appreciate the functionality of the flat section; ...

Thin rings bowl with black veneer. #2: Sealed with shellac

02-07-2017 10:16 PM by Julian | 1 comment »

After sanding to 220 grit I applied a coat of clear shellac as a sealer.I’m hoping the cherry will darken more to give the piece better contrast.

Thin rings bowl with black veneer. #1: 14 thin rings glued & turned.

02-06-2017 04:25 PM by Julian | 2 comments »

This will be a covered bowl. I first made the bowl and then will make the cover to ensure it fits.This bowl has two different types of rings; one type of ring is from alder and walnut & the second type of ring is from cherry and maple. The smaller pieces from maple and walnut are wider in the rings as they approach the center but the effect did not turn out that obvious. There is a layer of black veneer between each ring.Here are some photos from glued rings to finished turning (before...

Make a Bowl Gouge #1: Forming and Heat Treating

01-29-2017 08:35 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I have decided to see if I could make a bowl gouge for a very cheap price instead of buying one. So far it is going well with forming the main portion and then heat treating the metal. Subscribe for more woodworking videos.

Make a Lathe Tool Rack

01-03-2017 11:32 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Instead of leaving my lathe tools laying around and always getting in the way, I created a rack to hold them with a few additional spaces for future expansion. I was able to use scrap lumber and fill in a void area in my shop. Take a look at the project, leave comments, and subscribe.
