This was an interesting exercise. I quietly hoped I was going to transform one of these cheap chisels but it was not to be. They are so buckled and bent that even 3 nz dollars was too much to pay. See what you think any way.Andy.http://www.youtube.com/user/Aandyaitch123
Recently I have dabbled in making segmented bowls. I have had a few successes, but have realized that I won’t be able to reach my desired potential without getting higher detailed pieces. All this means more pieces per bowl, with more intricacies, which means more precise angles etc. I purchased the masters book via kindle, “The Art of Segmented Wood Turning”, by Malcolm Tibbetts. Being over anxious in learning the secrets and coupling this with the cheaper price has c...
A while back, I posted some pictures of the most difficult project I had ever attempted…the Maloof Music Stand. Much to my surprise, quite a few woodworkers have expressed an interest in tackling this thing, so I have finally put together templates and a detailed instruction booklet for anyone who thinks they’re up for the challenge. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;) You can have a look Here Enjoy! Scott Morrisonhttp://www.finewoodworker.com
1 – Parting the coneCut the top of the cone using the tip of a cutter, or a saw. When using the cutter done very carefully using the technique of chip carving (press cutting, no sliding).I left the straight (where the reflective) so that the cone is better to put at the top of the bucket.1 – Tronzar el conoCortamos la parte superior del cono utilizando la punta de un cutter bien afilado, o un serrucho. En caso de utilizar la trincha, hacerlo con mucho cuidado utilizando la técnica...
Well, the last day of the “Safety Week” is a good time to start a project that will help keep the workshop clean and safe. Already much has been talked about cyclone, so I will simply attempt to show step by step how to do mine.The parts I use are readily available in my country and pretty cheap.1 – Vacuum: An older model 800 W and 2-inch hose that so far has given me very good result, with the only problem that fills up very fast and the system filter (paper bag) is ...
This is an older video I made to answer a question on Phil Thien’s forum about if you can fit 4” DC hose to 4” S&D pipe. The answer is a quick and simple yes. The video was to prove it to doubters. I thought LJs might be interested so I am sharing it here!
I thought it would be a good time to take a break from rehabbing vintage tools to actually build a project with them. So I pulled a copy of “Basic Box Making,” by Doug Stowe from my bookshelf. I’ve always liked this book and have admired his creativity and craftsmanship. I like to keep things simple. So to me, that means starting at the beginning of Stowe’s book. That has the advantage of slowly learning new skills in layers as projects become more complex. Flipping to the first ...
Wood Selection Almost every hollow form I turn is from local hardwoods and is turned green. Why use green wood? Green wood is relatively inexpensive, easy to obtain, and easy to turn. It is nearly impossible to find, or afford, large kiln dried wood suitable for turning large pieces. Construction sites, firewood cutters, arborists, and landscape recycling centers are all excellent sources for wood. The biggest problem I have with green wood is my greed. I bring home more wood than I can...
