Husqvarna 394 XP Rebuild!

09-07-2016 02:29 AM by woodshopmike | 3 comments »

Hey y’all, it’s been awhile since posting anything here due to moving states and having the shop packed up for about 6 months. The shop is still mostly packed, but I’m finally starting to get WSM headquarters back up and running! So no, this is not a post that some would consider to have much to do with woodworking, but since I’m mainly a turner, my chainsaw is very much part of my process. Hopefully there’s something here that some of y’all will fin...

Lathe work #1: Woodturning for the True Beginner

09-03-2016 05:47 PM by Bdobs13 | 4 comments »

For anyone looking to get into woodturning, you should. It is an awesome feeling to turn the simplest of things. My first object was just a cylinder with little grooves but the feeling was great. I have had a used Jet 1236 lathe that I just looked at for about a year and always too afraid of using it and getting way too caught up in getting the tools sharp although I only attempted sharpening them once with epic failure results. I did countless hours of research on woodturning for beginners ...

Woodturning Projects #1: Woodturning Handle | An Alternative Approach

09-02-2016 03:15 PM by Scott Seganti | 0 comments »

A great way to save a few dollars on your next turning tool purchase is to buy your tools un-handled and make your own. I came up with a design that works really well. It includes set screws which allow you to remove the tool from the handle if needed. https://youtu.be/jpzoXaAUR_o

Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by WoodworkinPROGRESS | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

Woodturning #1: David Marks Turns a 400 Pound Hollow Vessel!

08-04-2016 08:42 PM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

View on YouTube I met with David Marks while he was still in the early stages of his greatest woodturning project (yet!). He showed my the specialized lathe tools he uses for very large hollow vessel turnings and some of his woodturning tricks! He also explained his amazing methods for storing, drying and stabilizing wood for his wood turning projects. The scale of this woodturning project is amazing! The blank for this turning project weighed 400 pounds! Even the tools he use...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw

06-28-2016 04:48 AM by MikesProjects | 2 comments »

Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...

First Turning Project: Tap Handles #1: Prototype

06-25-2016 05:18 PM by Dustin | 2 comments »

Alright, fellas, my first ever turning project, and my first project on LJ’s! After telling my boss that I just got a new toy to play with (Harbor Freight 8” by 12” mini-lathe), he asked what I’d want to turn him some tap handles for his DIY Kegerator. Before I could answer, he offered me 5 gallons of his dark IPA home brew. Sold! His stuff always at least places in the competitions he enters, and all I really wanted was some practice turning, so seems like a win...

I just blogged (with lots of photos) about the Morris Chair I built this past spring. This part 1 goes through most of the build, and part 2 will be finishing, upholstery and stuff. For LJs, I’m also posting a project here too. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/6/14/at-last-a-morris-chair (link fixed!) Here’s a few pictures…
