Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #1: The Jigs

2021 days ago by lew | 10 comments »

I have had so many positive comments and feedback on the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Thank you for all of them. Many LumberJocks asked for instructions on how they are made- so here goes. I am a fan of “Cook Book” style instructions so if I miss any details, please let me know and I will try to flesh them out. I thought it best to start with the jigs I used to prepare the turning blanks. Please note that I always over engineer everything and hardly ever see the obvious or the easy...

1439 days ago by Mary Anne | 27 comments »

TOOT TOOT TOOTORIAL TWO This time, we’re going to turn a whistle on a lathe. I will be including some beginner level information since a few of the people who showed an interest in this project are novices. Besides, I think it is a great beginner project; it requires no parts or kits, just a chunk of wood, your lathe, your tools, and you. Please use all safety precautions you have available! I can’t think of any good stories to start with this time, so let’s get right toot it. Th...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #4: Glue Up and Trimming The Blank- The Final Steps

2019 days ago by lew | 14 comments »

Before starting this section, I forgot to add to pix into the previous post. This is the spacer strip used to reposition the blanks for the second cut. The spacer goes between the blank and the fence. This shows the blank seated against the rear stop and the blank is labeled to assure it is not reversed during the various cutting operations. I found it easier to glue if I oriented the blank with the diagonal cut facing up. I use an old restaurant cutting board as a gluing wor...
